Jujutsu Kaisen has captivated fans with its intense and fascinating storyline, and the ongoing Culling Game arc has only heightened the excitement. With concerns about when the series will conclude, the author recently addressed the future of Jujutsu Kaisen, indicating that while it is approaching its end, there is still more to come.

The Culling Game arc, while receiving mixed opinions on its storytelling, has delivered impressive fights that maintain the series' signature intensity. As the arc unfolds, it becomes apparent that it serves as a bridge to the endgame, introducing major character deaths and involving formidable villains like Satoru Gojo and Ryomen Sukuna, respectively, directly in the plot.

The recent clashes, such as the battle between Gojo and Sukuna, suggest that the story is reaching its climax. With Sukuna's reincarnation and Kenjaku's decapitation by Yuta Okkotsu, the major villains are actively engaged in fights, indicating that the resolution of their arcs is imminent within the Culling Game arc.

Could Jujutsu Kaisen end with the Culling Game arc?

Back in January, Gege Akutami stated that Jujutsu Kaisen is ending later this year. However, the mangaka has since clarified that this is unlikely to happen and the conclusion would be more feasible by 2024.

The author's clarification that Jujutsu Kaisen is in its final phase doesn't imply an immediate end but signals the beginning of the conclusion. Fans can expect more incredible moments, intense fights, and at least one more story arc before the series wraps up. This suggests that Jujutsu Kaisen is entering its Final Saga, comprising multiple arcs that will eventually conclude the story.

Readers can access Jujutsu Kaisen officially and for free on platforms like Shonen Jump and Manga Plus apps. Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 244 is set to release on December 3, 2023. As the series approaches its final phase, fans can anticipate a thrilling conclusion with memorable moments and intense battles.
