Jujutsu Kaisen isn’t just one of the best-selling manga series today. The anime is now the most in-demand animated TV show in the world, beating the likes of Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece and Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan. With this feat, Gege Akutami’s masterpiece makes its way to the 2025 Guinness World Records.

Jujutsu Kaisen broke the Guinness World Record for the “Most In-Demand Animated TV Show,” a title Attack on Titan held since 2020. According to the data-science firm Parrot Analytics, the Studio MAPPA-produced anime has a global demand rating 71.2 times greater than an average TV show. The series’ demand started when its second season was released from July to December 2023.

Its success peaked on December 29, 2023, at 128 times the demand of an average show. Most of its viewers were Gen Z (ages 13-22), which accumulated to 71.3 percent, much higher than One Piece’s 56.7 percent and Attack on Titan’s 64.4 percent.

Jujutsu Kaisen released an official statement on X (formerly Twitter) to acknowledge this big achievement. The record will be officially published in 2025, and the anime thanked everyone for their support.

“TV anime Jujutsu Kaisen will be registered in the Guinness World Records 2025!” the caption reads, as translated to English. “Jujutsu Kaisen will be included in the Guinness Book of World Records to be published in 2025. It has been decided that it will be featured as ‘the most popular TV anime program in the world! Thank you everyone for your support of Jujutsu Kaisen!”

Jujutsu Kaisen Fights Closely Against One Piece & Attack on Titan

Aside from Jujutsu Kaisen, One Piece and Attack on Titan are two of the best-selling manga of all time. One Piece already has a whopping 523.2 million copies in circulation as of December 2023. Despite ending in April 2021, Attack on Titan has 140 million copies sold as of November 2023. Jujutsu Kaisen has sold 90 million copies as of January 2024.

The same thing could be said for their anime series. One Piece has over a thousand episodes and has been airing since 1999. Though Attack on Titan anime already ended in November 2023, it ran for a decade and experienced incredible success.

That said, Jujutsu Kaisen fought closely against these two to claim the Guinness World Records’ top spot in 2023’s ranking. One Piece has renewed fans' interest with the release of its live-action adaptation on Netflix in August 2023. It has even brought in a new generation of followers while older fans rewatch the anime. And though Attack on Titan is still immensely popular, it lost out this time.

 

Will there be Jujutsu Kaisen Season 3?

With the second season’s success, nabbing 11 recognitions at the 2024 Crunchyroll Anime Awards, it’s no surprise that Jujutsu Kaisen Season 3 was announced. As soon as the second season finale ended, the anime released an announcement teaser to reveal the upcoming adaptation of Culling Game Arc. Here, Yuji, Megumi, and their allies will lead the fight as they join the Culling Game. They also aim to rescue Tsumiki after Megumi’s step-sister decides to enter the game. Aside from that, the group also eyes to free Gojo from the Prison Realm and protect Tengen from Kenjaku.

You can read the synopsis below:

The Culling Game Arc is the ninth arc in Gege Akutami's Jujutsu Kaisen. It follows Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, and their allies as they enter the Culling Game with the intention of rescuing Tsumiki Fushiguro from participating, freeing Satoru Gojo from Prison Realm, and protecting Tengen from Kenjaku.
