The next chapter of the Jujutsu Kaisen manga (178) will be postponed this week, but why is there a break and when will it be published? This week, thanks to Toei Animation’s hacking, the anime and manga community have been obsessed with delays.
This week’s schedule will be disrupted by four major anime titles, among them One Piece and Dragon Quest: The Adventures of Dai. However, there will also be a significant manga series on hold this week, with reports that Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 178 has been postponed. When Is Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 178 Coming Out: Release Date And Schedule.
When Is Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 178 Coming Out?
Due to the poor health of author Gege Akutami, the Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 178 will be delayed. The Jujutsu Kaisen PR Twitter account stated that the following chapter would be “postponed due to Gege’s poor physical condition.”
The chapter had been planned to go live this weekend in Weekly Shonen Jump Issue 15 on Sunday, March 13th. The news is good: the statement from the PR page says that Akutami is “now recovering,” implying that Jujutsu Kaisen 178 will be released in English sooner rather than later.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Confirmed
The great news for the Jujutsu Kaisen franchise just kept coming, with the promise of a second season of the anime in 2023.
While no one would have been shocked by the continuation of the popular anime series, fans were quick to rejoice on social media after hearing about it.
Despite some confusion spreading throughout the community, a release date for Season 2 has not been revealed.
This was due to a mistranslation by the Weekly Shonen Jump Twitter page, which initially stated that season 2 would premiere in Winter 2023 before correcting this and stating only a 2023 debut was intended.
