Hunter x Hunter Author Togashi Posts on Social Media Again

Hunter x Hunter author Yoshihiro Togashi posted on his personal social media account after being absent online for nearly 7 months. The new post reads “start over” in English and is accompanied by a picture of a manga page alongside a ruler. Currently, the Hunter x Hunter manga has been on hiatus since late December 2022.

Back when the hiatus was originally announced, the Weekly Shonen Jump editorial department confirmed that it will announce the return of the series. While there has not been an official announcement yet, Yoshihiro Togashi showed his progress on chapter 401 of Hunter x Hunter back on March 9, 2023, which could indicate how close the manga is to returning.

You can check out the original social media post by Togashi here:

The Hunter x Hunter manga is known for having experienced multiple hiatus during its run. This is due to author Togashi’ health complications. In previous interviews, Togashi explained that back and hip issues prevent him from sitting down for long, and that he often has to lay down while drawing.

In his previous 401 chapter update, Togashi gave a brief update on his health, stating that he had been able to sit at a desk for longer every day, something he was very happy about.

Hunter x Hunter is available in Weekly Shonen Jump, and Viz Media publishes the manga outside Japan. The 2011 version of the anime is available on Crunchyroll and Netflix.
