Only if he brings back Gojo— Jujutsu Kaisen fans put a condition on supporting Gege Akutami

The release of Chapter 261 not only altered Jujutsu Kaisen, but also greatly impacted the series’ fanbase. Despite having little remaining hope for the author to spare them from further suffering, the fandom ultimately lost all faith and began to view Gege Akutami as a villain.

Despite being the most beloved character in the fandom, Gojo Satoru has returned as a corpse controlled by his student, Yuta Okkotsu. Due to the sensitive nature of the current situation in the manga, the fandom is not yet ready to fully support the author.

Despite the disappointment of many fans with the actions of Gege Akutami, there is still hope thanks to the latest update of Manga Plus. This update allows viewers to show their support for the author by watching an ad. While some members of the fandom expressed their reluctance to support Akutami, as Jujutsu Kaisen is available on this platform, others proposed an impractical condition for their support: the return of Gojo.

Fans’ Reactions to Supporting Jujutsu Kaisen on the Latest Manga Plus Campaign

On June 3, 2024, Manga Plus celebrated a significant achievement, reaching 30 million downloads on their mobile app. To commemorate this milestone, the website launched a new campaign that allows fans to show their support for the authors whose series are featured on the app.

Viewers can view an advertisement on the application and a portion of the resulting revenue will be allocated to the creators of the series. This served as a means for the manga platform to express gratitude to the individuals who contributed to their achievement.

The online app offers nearly 100 serialized manga titles, one of which was the focus of discussion: Jujutsu Kaisen. The latest chapter of this manga series caused a divide among fans, with some refusing to support the author while others were willing to do so if Gojo Satoru was brought back.

Despite the confirmation of Gojo Satoru’s death in chapter 261, a portion of the fandom expressed that they would only offer their support to the author if he were to revive the character. While this request may seem unjustified, the fans were sincere in their statement.

“Gege should bring Gojo back and then we’ll talk”a fan said

“Sure, he just need to bring gojo back”another one said

Despite the majority of the fandom expressing their displeasure towards the author, there were still some who defended him. While some stated they would gladly skip any ads while reading Gege Akutami’s manga, others argued that the author should be paying them instead of the other way around and even went as far as calling him a serial k*ller.

A fan argued that the Boruto Two Blue Vortex fandom dominated the user base of Manga Plus, therefore suggesting that the main author of the series, Ikemoto, should receive the majority of the revenue. However, while this may hold true in certain countries, the most-viewed manga series on the platform is currently Jujutsu Kaisen, which has surpassed all other series in popularity.

“Thank you, i’ll make sure to skip every ad!”a fan said

“He needs to pay me for what he has done”another one said

“I’m not supporting that serial killer”another fan claimed

“Boruto manga is basically carrying your app, so 99.9% of that ad revenue should go straight to Ikemoto’s bank account”another one claimed

Being a mangaka is often a high-stress job, with constant deadlines to meet. That’s why the support of the fandom is so crucial for these artists. The introduction of Manga Plus has been a game-changer, as fans can now easily show their support for their favorite author by simply watching a short advertisement.
