While famous leakers of important manga have been arrested by the police, fans of Jujutsu Kaisen seem worried.

In the final phase, the manga by Gege Akutami is more followed than ever by its readers, and each new chapter has the effect of a bomb in its weekly publication. Between the deaths of characters who have united fans from the beginning of the story, to epic victories, nothing is left to chance, and every detail is closely scrutinized.

It is in this context that the leakers, these professionals of leaking on the Internet, strike: every week, two days before the publication of the chapters, spoilers come out on the Internet. Far from being unanimously disturbing, they are highly sought after by a large proportion of readers.

Even to the point that when two of them were arrested by the police, Internet users began to worry about their favorite leakers on social networks.

The manga market has never been stronger than in recent years for international publications. Impatience and sometimes refusal to go through official – and paid – sites pushes many readers to prefer pirate platforms, on which leaks of future chapters can be found more quickly. For other fans, these leaks are on the contrary a blight, which spoils the pleasure of the surprises created by the authors, while impacting the manga industry.
