In a separate assertion, Akutami wrote, “The [hiatus] period should be around a month.” He added that Jump’s editorial division had been asking him to take a break, however he had beforehand dismissed this as a result of he personally didn’t see the attraction of a Jujutsu Kaisen with sluggish pacing as he desires to attract the conclusion as rapidly as he can. Not prepared to decelerate meant that his trip days (and requests to make use of them from the editorial division) continued to pile up.
“Even if I say I’m feeling unwell, this isn’t a serious illness,” he added. “Mentally issues are functioning as regular, so don’t fear. I do apologize for protecting everybody ready. Once I return, I plan to provide it my all to the brand new installments.”
As is the case with many manga artists and inventive varieties normally, it feels like Akutami has been working exhausting and people round him thought it could be greatest if he rested and took a well-deserved break.
