Hunter x Hunter Creator takes a big behind-the-scenes manga milestone

Hunter X Hunter’s Original series creator Yoshihiro Togashi has hit a major milestone for the manga behind the scenes as the creator works on the next chapter slate! Togashi has taken many different breaks over the course of Hunter X Hunter’s in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, but it was the longest wait in the series’ history to date. But all that waiting will come to an end soon enough as the manga will return later this month with new chapters after almost four long years since the last new chapter.

Hunter X Hunter Series creator Yoshihiro Togashi surprised series fans earlier this year when he took to Twitter to announce that he was working on new chapters for the series. With manga chapter 390 premiering in 2018, it came as quite a big surprise as fans had no idea how many chapters of the series might be in the works. It looks like there are at least ten in the works at the moment, as Togashi updated the facts by revealing that he’s currently working on the manga’s 400th chapter:

Hunter X Hunter will be officially back in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine with Chapter 391 on October 23 and will release new chapters every week. It has not yet been revealed how long the series will last for this time, but it seems that there are at least ten chapters in the works for this time. This lines up with Togashi’s previous returns from hiatuses in the past, so now it looks like fans can rest easy knowing that the series will last a few weeks with his next return. If you wanted to check Hunter X Hunter’To catch up, you can now find the entire series with Viz Media’s Shonen Jump Digital Library.

The three most recent chapters are completely free (and the rest of the series requires a paid subscription to read), and Viz Media describes the first volume of Hunter x Hunter as such: “Gon might be a country boy , but he has big aspirations.Despite his Aunt Mito’s protests, Gon decides to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a legendary hunter.After surviving the terrors of the high seas, Gon and his companions must now prove their worth in a variety of tests in order to find the elusive examination hall. And once there, will they make it back alive…?”
