Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 187 delayed, new release confirmed

Sadly, there will be a notable gap in our weekly reading lists this weekend as the Jujutsu Kaisen manga series will be delayed from both its domestic launch in Japan and internationally via distribution partners.

Per the Unofficial Weekly Shonen Jump Twitter page, “Jujutsu Kaisen will be on break in Weekly Shonen Jump Issue #27. Series will resume in Issue #28 as scheduled.”

That information has now been confirmed by both Viz Media and Manga Plus, with the delayed Jujutsu Kaisen manga chapter 187 now set to release on Sunday, June 12th.

The chapter will release at the following times around the world on June 12th:

  • Pacific Time: 8 AM PDT
  • Eastern Time: 11 AM EDT
  • British Time: 4 PM BST
  • European Time: 5 PM CEST
  • India Time: 8.30 PM IST
  • Philippine Time: 11 PM PHT
  • Australia Time: 12.30 AM ACST (June 13)

The first and latest three chapters are available to read for free on both websites, with access to the entire collection requiring a membership which is currently set for $1.99 a month – Manga Plus can be downloaded via the App Store and Google Play.

At the time of writing, a reason for the break has not been publicly revealed; however, fans shouldn’t be too concerned about the upcoming hiatus. Weekly manga series take regular breaks, typically every five weeks or so, in order to give their production and distribution teams a well-deserved rest.

Hilariously, there are countless comments on the Twitter post from the Unofficial Weekly Shonen Jump page that claims the delay is because of the return of Yoshihiro Togashi’s Hunter x Hunter manga.
