One of the most popular shonen manga series of all time, Hunter x Hunter is confirmed to be coming back after a tweet went viral allegedly from the series creator, Yoshihiro Togashi himself.
A Tweet has been going viral in the Japanese Twitter community, from a new Twitter account. The Tweet has a caption of ” 4 more chapters for the time being”, it shows a side image of a paper which looks like a rough sketch of the manga panel. According to the Tweet, Togashi sensei has completed 6 new chapters of Hunter x Hunter, and he is trying to finish 4 more for now. The post has gathered more than 200k likes in a matter of hours, but as the account was created recently there was still no confirmation whether this account belongs to the Hunter x Hunter creator or not, until it was confirmed by One Punch Man author.
To add some credibility to this Tweet, One Punch Man author, Yasuke Murata is also following this Twitter handle. They have also retweeted the tweet with the caption “I was with the person myself”.
The above retweet pretty much confirms that Hunter x Hunter manga series is coming back. No information has been revealed about the exact release date for the new manga chapters. However, we now know from the Tweet that we will be getting at least 10 more new chapters. Hunter x Hunter manga went on hiatus in 2018, so it has been almost 4 years since the new chapter came out. Even if Togashi is coming back for just a few more chapters, that is still a good news for fans. Of course, there is still no information on when the anime series will come back.
The popular manga series has previously taken many breaks because of health issues of Togashi. The series creator suffers from chronic, debilitating back pain for years now, which hinders his drawing capabilities.
Hunter x Hunter manga started serializing in Weekly Shonen Jump since March 1998. Hunter x Hunter was adapted by Mad House into anime series, which aired from Oct 2011 to Sept 2014 with a total number of 148 episodes. Hunter x Hunter anime has a rating of 9.08 on My Anime List from almost 1.2 million users.
