hunter x hunter hiatus

Though Hunter x Hunter briefly resumed serialization in October 2022, it seems that Yoshihiro Togashi will need to take a hiatus once again. According to a note in the latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, this will be a temporary hiatus. But there is no news as to when fans can expect the manga to return. [Thanks, TheHxHSource!]

Hunter x Hunter, when it returns, will no longer be a weekly serialization. This is due to Togashi’s health complications, which were a major part of why Hunter x Hunter suffered a schedule slip in the first place. Togashi is still working on new chapters, and the Weekly Shonen Jump editorial department will announce the publication dates and methods in the future. This will go into effect for Chapter 401 and beyond.

As some people may know, being a mangaka is a very demanding job. When Togashi worked on Yu Yu Hakusho, the stress and heavy work load was taking a toll on his health, which is part of the reason why the series had such an abrupt ending. In July 2022, Togashi stated that he has to draw while laying down due to back and hip problems preventing him from sitting in a chair.

Weekly Shonen Jump will announce when the Hunter x Hunter hiatus ends. Viz has licensed the manga, and the 2011 version of the anime is available on streaming services such as Crunchyroll and Netflix.
