Who is Gege Akutami? Learn more about the author of Jujutsu Kaisen
As we know, manga are taking over the world and becoming increasingly popular. One of the most recent crazes in the genre is Jujutsu Kaisen, which also has an anime that is very successful. In addition to all the supernatural events involving the anime, there is also the mystery surrounding its author, who introduces himself as Gege Akutami .
Even though he is a mangaka from a very successful title, little is known about Akutami. More than that: Gege Akutami isn’t even his real name, it’s just a pseudonym. However, Akutami is credited in some Shonen Jump one-shots, in addition to Jujutsu Kaisen itself , featuring Kamishiro Sousa and Nikai Bongai Barabarujura , which were never published in Brazil or the United States.
Who is Gege Akutami?
Although many people refer to Gege Akutami as he/him, his gender has never been confirmed. In his notes at the end of each chapter of Jujutsu Kaisen, we have a one-eyed cat avatar, but nothing more than that. In 2015, he made the profile that appears above this paragraph, showing that beneath the mask, Akutami would be a woman. Fans feed this theory, mainly because Jujutsu Kaisen has a great female cast.
Akutami also does not provide any details about his personal life. Generally his notes do not reveal information about his housing or family. Instead, he prefers to make small jokes about his work or the characters he created. But we have no clue about him or his work under possible other pseudonyms.
