It was announced on the 43rd issue of the Weekly Shonen Jump that the popular manga series Hunter X Hunter by Yoshihiro Togashi will return on September 22. The series went on hiatus for around 5 months as its 380th chapter was published last April 9.
This isn’t the first time the manga series went on hiatus. It had a hiatus last September with a promise by Togashi that it will be back before the end of the year. The series then returned on the 9th issue of this year’s Weekly Shonen Jump last January 29.
The 35th volume was released in Japan on February. Viz Media officially publishes the manga series in English. The 34th volume was released in the US on March 6.
The popularity of Hunter X Hunter has paved way for two anime adaptations, two anime films, and several original video animations (OVAs). A new smartphone game titled Hunter X Hunter Greed Adventure is expected to release this winter.
