It had become a common practice for manga creator Gege Akutami to pause before a major event occurred in the manga.

“Great so now we know it’s gonna end with the craziest cliffhanger ever.”one fan said.

“The Lobotomy will be absolutely Splendid,”another said.

At the same time, some fans were eagerly anticipating the “Lobotomy Kaisen”that was about to take place.

For those unfamiliar with the term, “Lobotomy Kaisen”refers to a state that Jujutsu Kaisen fans experience when there is a lack of new manga information. This state causes already obsessed fans to reach new levels of enthusiasm through unique memes.

“Dude takes a month off drops 2 chapters then takes another week off I can’t believe my eyes,”another fan said.

“The fight needs to be over already,”other fan said.

At the same time, some fans grew frustrated with the actions of manga creator Gege Akutami. One fan shared their disappointment upon discovering that the series would take a one-week break right after returning from a three-week hiatus. Similarly, another fan hoped that the creator would not prolong the final battle any further.
