Jujutsu Kaisen enthusiasts have been eagerly anticipating the continuation of the manga following Weekly Shonen Jump’s winter break in December. The recent release of Chapter 248 left fans on the edge with an intense cliffhanger, but the wait for Chapter 249 extends a bit further.
Release Schedule and Time Zones:
Despite Weekly Shonen Jump returning to its regular schedule, Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 249 is delayed by an additional week. Instead of a January release, fans can mark their calendars for a February 4 release. However, it’s essential to note that release times vary across regions:
- 8:00 am PST
- 10:00 am CST
- 11:00 am EST
The delay is attributed to creator Gege Akutami’s break, pushing the chapter’s release to the tenth issue of Weekly Shonen Jump. Although issue 9 will be released this week, it won’t feature Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 249.
Fans eager to dive into the next chapter can read it on Viz Media’s official website, Shueisha’s MangaPlus website, and the Shonen Jump Plus app. While Shonen Jump offers free access to Chapters 247 and 248, a subscription is required for the subsequent chapters.
Jujutsu Kaisen’s editor, Junya Fukuda, recently hinted at upcoming chapters being particularly shocking as the series approaches its conclusion. Speculations swirl around Chapter 249 potentially unveiling Yuta’s domain expansion, a long-awaited exploration of his true powers teased during the Culling Game arc. Additionally, anticipation builds for an intense showdown between Yuta and Sukuna.
As the countdown to February 4 begins, Jujutsu Kaisen fans brace themselves for the climactic revelations and thrilling battles promised in the upcoming chapter.
