Jujutsu Kaisen Production Meltdown: Is Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 41 Delayed?

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is ongoing, and JJK Episode 41 is about to be released today. The anime “Jujutsu Kaisen” is animated by Studio MAPPA. MAPPA is behind some famous animes like Attack on Titans, Chainsaw Man, Hell’s Paradise, and Terror in Resonance.

Fans always praise them for the work they do and the perfection they come up with. For example, fans like me are in love with Attack on Titans animation.

However, after the highly anticipated “Jogo vs Sukuna” fight was animated, fans expressed their dissatisfaction.

The animation of the Nanami vs Haruto fight, on the other hand, was exceptionally well-executed, which only heightened the fans’ expectations. Fans took it to Twitter and showed their dissatisfaction.

Jujutsu Kaisen Production Meltdown Explained

The employees of MAPPA underwent a meltdown because of this. They also took it to Twitter and expressed that this is due to overwhelming workloads and poor working conditions.

The staff even suggested that they should delay the episode as the animators because of the overwhelming workload couldn’t come up with it on time.

However, the committee denied this request and the episode is scheduled to air on time. The preview was delayed because of this reason.

Kosuke Kato, who is the main animator of JJK Season 2, also tweeted. However, he deleted his tweet afterward, he said:

I’ll just leave you with the word ‘scum’

Is MAPPA in trouble?

MAPPA is putting a lot of pressure on the animators and this was the breaking point. With many famous animators leaving MAPPA studio and the reputation it got.

I think Jujutsu Kaisen will be given to another studio to animate. There is a high chance that after Episode 41 airs, there will be scheduling issues afterward.

Is JJK Episode 41 Delayed?

No, Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 41 is not delayed. It was animated before the tweets went viral. The whole reason for the meltdown was that the staff requested that they need a break and the episode should be delayed.

However, the request was denied and the episode is still scheduled to air on time.

Final Words

MAPPA has not made any statements on this yet. While we don’t know how much trouble MAPPA really is in right now, it is time that they realize it is wrong to exploit their employees. We are not sure what will happen after this episode but fans can expect a delay after this episode. The animators need a delay, meanwhile you can check out the leaks of JJK Chapter 242.
