News broke via the Anime News Network with the Hunter x Hunter Manga set to return for the first time since 2014, when the long-running Weekly Shonen Jump series went on hiatus reportedly due to author Yoshihiro Togashi’s back problems.
What would have been a two-week break became a two-year gaping hole in many a fan’s existence as the story began its lead in to the Dark Continent Arc following the Chimera Ant Arc.
Details of the impending return will be made available via the 16th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump this Saturday.
One can only hope that Togashi is back to full health and has developed some interesting twists and turns for us to look forward to.
In addition, let us not forget that the Hunter x Hunter 2011 anime series is to receive an English Dub via Viz Media. The future looks bright for a series I once dubbed “Gon, but not forgotten”. A terrible pun, I know.
