The panel was made up of Junya Enoki, Yuichi Nakamura, and Nobunaga Shimazaki, who played Yuji Itadori, Satoru Gojo, and Mahito, respectively, in the jujutsu kaisen anime Suguru Geto’s voice actor Takahiro Sakurai was also scheduled to appear. However, he was absent due to the recent scandal involving his personal life.

Akutami’s message was read aloud by Shimazaki. Roughly translated, he says:

Thank you for your continued support of Jujutsu Kaisen. It’s unfortunate, but we often have to hear the news that we dread every day. It’s honestly a surprise that so many people enjoy my work, even when reality seems to slowly but surely suffocate us.”

It further continues:

“I will continue to draw things that don’t make sense, and Gege (referring to himself) will be very happy if you continue with me and enjoy my work for another year (maybe).”

In Mando Kobayashi, Gege Sensei said that JJK will end in 2 years… So maybe now it’s updated that JJK will end in around 1 year😭#JujutsuKaisen

Needless to say, the message was confusing at best and led to rampant speculation. Akutami had previously stated in January 2021 that he wanted to end his series within two years.

It seems that the deadline has been extended due to the introduction of the Culling game. One of the ongoing debates in the fandom is whether the killing game arc will be the final arc of the manga. Suffice to say, Akutami’s message seems to have confirmed this speculation for some fans.

Meanwhile, many fans believe that while the sacrificial game arc may come to an end in a year, the manga itself will continue, given the number of plot threads that Akutami still has to resolve. While fans almost universally acknowledge that the series will end in tragedy, it’s only natural that they want to prolong the arrival of said ending.

Enoki even commented that he doesn’t trust mangakas regarding their series’ end dates, probably referring to how my hero academia mangaka Kohei Horikoshi planned to end his series this year. However, the latter was unable to do so due to the fact that the story was far from over.
