Regular serialization of the manga at Mangaplus and Viz Media ended with chapter 400. However on May 1, 2024, Togashi returned to social media to show his progress on Hunter x Hunter. The image shared indicating a massive leap in progress since his last post concerning chapter 401.

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

This post roughly translates to “No405, I’m working on it. Moon Healing Escalation!” This is not only a reference to his wife Naoko Takeuchi’s manga Sailor Moon, but this update indicates he’s working on finishing the manuscript for chapter 405, meaning that the manuscript had progressed five entire chapters in its absence.

In a previous update, Togashi addressed his previous break with a similar post simply stating in English, “Start over.” It indicated a renewed effort into the project. With this new update from Togashi, it shows that his efforts are beginning to pay off.

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.
