The Jujutsu Kaisen manga has broken new records since it was adapted into an anime. The popular manga ranked second after Demon Slayer in Oricon’s biannual manga sales chart, making the title one of the few manga to surpass One Piece and Attack on Titan in terms of overall sales.
Jujutsu Kaisen manga Volume 18 Release Date
Shueisha’s official account has announced that with the release of volume 18 of the Gege Akutami – Jujutsu Kaisen series on December 25, the manga series will reach 60 million copies in circulation. This run includes both print and digital copies. By calculations, the franchise has seen a 710% increase in manga popularity over the past 15 months.
Jujutsu Kaisen manga surpasses 55 million impressions
The manga said that there were around 8.5 million copies in circulation as of early October 2020. However, as of September 27, the manga has 55 million copies in circulation in less than a year. Fans on Twitter are surely expecting the manga to rank in the Top 3 in terms of overall sales on this year’s Oricon Chart. However, that seems highly unlikely with titles like Demon Slayer, Attack on Titan, and Tokyo Revengers. However, with the release date of the movie “Jujutsu Kaisen 0” approaching, there is a good chance that the manga’s sales will skyrocket.
Jujutsu Kaisen manga creator Gege Akutami shared a cover photo for “Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 18” with Hakari on the cover. The colors in the illustration add a psychedelic touch and the details explain that Hakari is all about money and cards.
According to the recent report based on Rakuten’s Top 100 Selling Digital Manga List from January 1, 2021 to October 20, 2021, Jujutsu Kaisen tops the list, beating Tokyo Revengers, Demon Slayer, and Attack on Titan. The classification according to the report is as follows:
Murderer of demons
Attack on Titan
Mystery for Iu Nakare
My hero academia
Reincarnated in Slime
