After almost 3 years of break, Hunter x Hunter manga is confirmed to be returning as the author of the series is working continuously on the new chapters. After the manga series makes its comeback to the Shonen Jump magazine, it won’t be long till we see the Hunter x Hunter anime making a return as well.
In the final episodes of the anime, we saw Gon and Killua parting ways to continue their journey separately, Gon Freecs went to see his father, while Killua decided to spend his time with his little sister, Alluka. Now, fans are wondering if they will see Gon and Killua again once the anime returns? First, let us summarize what Gon and Killua are doing in the story so far.
Gon’s battle with Neferpitou did a major damage to his body. Although, thanks to Killua’s brother, Alluka, Gon returned to his normal form, but he lost his Nen abilities and also lost his ability to see his own aura. Gon had decided to live a normal life with his aunt, and he has started going to school.
After saying Goodbye to Gon Freecs, Killua has devoted his life to protect his little sister, Alluka. His little sister was treated very harshly by his family who only saw him as a property. Their family is still in pursuit of Alluka, so Killua wants to do everything in his power to protect Alluka.
The current story of the manga, mainly focuses on Kurapika. You can also say that currently, he is the protagonist of the story. Kurapika and Leorio are currently traveling on a boat, guarding the baby prince in a Succession Contest. Kurapkia was persuaded to join the mission in return to receive information on who has the Scarlet Eyes that he is continuously searching for. The boat is headed to the dark continent. Next anime season of Hunter x Hunter will adapt this arc, so no screen time for Killua & Gon.
Recently, the pacing of the manga series has been on the slow side. Fans have complained that there is more dialogue and less action. There is no hint in the manga chapters that we will see Gon and Killua again, but given that both Gon and Killua are the two major protagonists of the story, they will surely make a comeback in the near future. But as far as the Hunter x Hunter season 7 is concerned, there is very little chance of Gon & Killua screen time.
