Yuji Itadori

Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the most popular manga and anime series that have not been completed yet. Following the recent smash hit franchises, the dark-fantasy manga written by Gege Akutami was made into its anime adaptation from the autumn of 2020 to the winter of 2021 as many fans had expected.

Jujutsu Kaisen can be easily distinguished by the scary theme of curses, unique sorcerer characters and power combat scenes, which are perfectly adapted into the anime series by the outstanding anime studio Mappa. The first season consists of 24 episodes, followed by the first anime movie adaptation Jujutsu Kaisen 0 in 2021. The second season consists of 23 episodes from July to December 2023. Fortunately, the production of the third season has been confirmed.

For those who have already watched all of the two seasons and the film and are feeling hard to wait until the season 3 comes, here is the guide to how to enjoy the following story after the anime series in the manga. Check out where Jujutsu Kaisen anime ends in manga and from which volume and chapter to read after the anime series!

How many volumes does Jujutsu Kaisen have?

Jujutsu Kaisen has been serialized in the famous Japanese manga magazine Weekly Shonen Jump since 2018, written by Gege Akutami. There are 25 volumes published so far in the Jujutsu Kaisen manga series (the latest 25th volume released in January 2024), in addition to a prequel volume titled Jujutsu Kaisen 0.

And, it has been translated into English since the English edition of the first volume was released in December, 2019. The following volumes have been released a little later than the original Japanese edition.

What chapter does the Jujutsu Kaisen anime end on?

The first season of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime ends with Episode 24 “Accomplices,” which corresponds to Volume 8 Chapter 63 in the manga series.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is divided into two parts: the Gojo’s Past Arc and the Shibuya Incident Arc. The first half of the second season covers the original story from Volume 8 Chapter 64 to Volume 9 Chapter 79 in the manga. And the second half Shibuya Incident Arc finishes with Episode 47 “The Shibuya Incident – Gate Closed,” which adapts the range from Volume 9 Chapter 79 to the middle of Volume 16 Chapter 139.

If you want to discover the following the story earlier than the next season’s coming, let’s read the manga from Volume 16 Chapter 139 onwards! Since only a part of Chapter 138 has been animated, in any case, to fully enjoy the original manga story, it’s best to get Volume 16.

Here is the list of the correspondence table of manga and anime series:

Season 1: From Volume 1 Chapter 1 to Volume 8 Chapter 63

Movie: From Volume 0 Chapter 1 to Volume 0 Chapter 4

Season 2 (Shibuya Incident Arc): From Volume 9 Chapter 79 to Volume 16 Chapter 139

Season 3 (Culling Game Arc): From Volume 16 Chapter 139

In Season 2, Gojo’s Past Arc depicted the history of Satoru Gojo, the coolest and strongest jujutsu sorcerer, and his former classmate Suguru Geto, who is now his greatest enemy. The latter half, Shibuya Incident Arc, portrayed a battle between jujutsu sorcerers like Yuji and Gojo, and characters like Noritoshi Kamo and the cursed spirits, involving an unprecedented jujutsu terrorist attack. The battles were presented with incredible animation, especially the fight between Ryomen Sukuna and Mahoraga, showcasing overwhelming quality. The second season also briefly ventured into the new Itadori’s Extermination Arc.

The already confirmed Season 3 is subtitled Culling Game Arc, and will feature the Itadori’s Extermination Arc, Perfect Preparation Arc, and Culling Game Arc. It is expected to dynamically portray a game of death among those endowed with jujutsu powers.

Happily, at the end of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2, it was announced that the anime production of the sequel, Culling Game Arc, has been decided. This is expected to be Season 3.
