Gege Akutami’s work, Jujutsu Kaisen is, without a doubt, one of the most popular shounens today. Its second season won Crunchyroll’s The Anime Awards and the manga is one of Jump’s most read… but it’s starting to not please Japanese fans as much.

Some fans claim that the story of Jujutsu Kaisen is being dragged out unnecessarily. In case you haven’t read Jujutsu Kaisen and don’t know what’s currently going on, the current arc has Sukuna facing off against several characters and defeating them one by one resulting in battles one after the other against practically every character in the manga.

The current arc began with the fight of Sukuna vs Gojo and continues with several characters trying to face Sukuna and with many losing, so far this arc has 31 battle chapters.

A Japanese user criticized the manga by Jujutsu Kaisen due to its repetition involving the current arc of the series which consists of the final battle against Sukuna:

”I’ll tell you why I don’t like Jujutsu Kaisen. Sukuna is extremely strong and is the final enemy, so it is natural to think that some of the protagonists will die. So, the team of protagonists must have planned their strategy against the King of Curses… In fact, they had a month to prepare, and they made cheats, and they shouldn’t have had several safeties prepared. But what has been seen in everything since the arc began?”

Fans Claim Jujutsu Kaisen's Story Is Being Dragged

”Each of them throws themselves into combat against Sukuna without thinking twice and ends up shattered. Even Satoru Gojo, the strongest of them all, ended up being cut in half for entering the battle without any care or plan. Megumi Fushiguro’s antagonistic behavior is also very annoying. The story is being lengthened unnecessarily.”

But it’s just a comment from a random person on Twitter, how can we here justify someone like that? Well, it turns out that your comment ended up on Japanese anime and manga forums and then many more people were able to express their opinions, like the ones below:

“It has become repetitive, there is no doubt”

”No one dares to express an opinion against Jujutsu Kaisen because the fandom is too sick”

”This is a real battle. Endless battles around Sukuna in an endless cycle”

”Panda is still alive, right?”

“I wonder if they will do it like in Kimetsu no Yaiba where everyone attacked at the same time and managed to win”

“Before I was excited to know how things would turn out. Now I just want Jujutsu Kaisen to end as quickly as possible.”

They even created a “chart” showing how the current arc works, which is basically as follows: “A New opponent appears” > “He does something incredible and the narration hypes him” > “He’s the man!” > “Sukuna Defeats”.
