Naoya and Maki's fight will continue in "Jujutsu Kaisen" Chapter 152. But after this installment, Gege Akutami announced the manga would go on an indefinite hiatus due to some health issues.
Everyone is looking forward to seeing the continuation of Naoya and Maki's battle in "Jujutsu Kaisen" Chapter 152. But after that, it may take a little while before the manga can continue.
After Maki thrashed Naoya into the ground, it remains to be seen if he can get back on his feet again. Some say this may be the end of Naoya and Zen'in clan itself, though there may be an unexpected twist happening in the end.
According to Epic Dope, the upcoming chapter is most likely the end of the Zen'in family miniarc. If Maki officially puts Naoya down, there may be no one who can face her to match her ability.
However, what fans are waiting to see is if Maki will end her brother's life. As there is no strength left in his body, he may find it hard to resist and his life is now in his sister's hand.
With this turn, it is no surprise that "Jujutsu Kaisen" is one of the most sought-after manga series today. So, fans can probably imagine how hard it is for Akutami to maintain its hype and its storyline a must-see.
The mangaka announced he is going on an indefinite hiatus as he has to look after his health first, Comicbook noted. WSJ_manga shares the news on Twitter and the manga will return until further notice.
Hence, the next installment after "Jujutsu Kaisen" Chapter 152 will not be part of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine's issue #28 and it may last until three issues more. Akutami himself reveals his break may last for a month, though it may still change and go longer or shorter--depending on how he is feeling.
Sure, some fans feel disappointed by the manga creator's announcement, but there has been an outpour of support for him. Other manga followers even want Akutami to take all the rest that he needs and make his health his top priority more than anything else.
He truly deserves to go on a holiday with the way he has been working on "Jujutsu Kaisen." In an official statement, Akutami reveals the editorial department itself asks him to take a break from the series, though he has no plans to slow down the manga's weekly serialization.
He wants to draw the series as much as he can to put it to a close as soon as possible. However, he "just puts a hold on his answer," but Akutami himself notices he can't fully recover his schedule compared to other manga creators when they take a one-week break.
As this may continue, he accepts the proposal and the break may take about a month. Akutami assures he doesn't have a serious illness and he is even mentally healthy.
He then promises he will do his best with the serialization when he returns. Anyhow, fans will still see the release of "Jujutsu Kaisen" Chapter 152 Sunday.
