A Twitch streamer also shared: “Jujutsu Kaisen ON HIATUS due to Mappa mistreatment of animators! Join us on stream for more!”

One user also shared their support for the animators: “As much as I love Jujutsu Kaisen, I really hope it goes on hiatus for the sake of the animation team… Mappa needs to give the animators more time with a healthy schedule… I could tell by these last couple of episodes that something wasn’t right. Respect the animators.”
