After announcing just four days ago that JUJUTSU KAISEN had released more than 12 million copies of the popular manga and anime series, the official Twitter account revealed on December 16 that over 15 million copies of the series have been printed and sold in Japan. To celebrate the news, the JUJUTSU KAISEN Twitter account released a preview of the upcoming 14th volume of the series, scheduled to be released on January 4.

The 15 million figure includes not only the printed physical version of the manga but digital versions as well. In a month and a half, the series has sold more than 5 million copies, making it a certified hit in just a short amount of time since the TV anime series started– and it can only go up from here.
When the 12 million figure was released by TBS’s NEWS23 program a few days ago, they spoke to a clerk at the Shibuya Tsutaya store, who said that JUJUTSU KAISEN “is anticipated to sell as well as, or at least close to, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.” And with figures like this already, it’s looking good for the Weekly Shonen Jump series.
