In May, Togashi stated in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine that he had completed rough drafts for 10 chapters, which is the standard amount for a volume. He had joked at the time that he had completed seven (six at first) manuscripts out of those ten chapters. He has since kept the account updated with hints of the chapters’ progress. He did not say when the chapters would be released.
In 1998, Togashi published the manga in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. Two television anime series, two anime films, and several original video animation titles were inspired by the manga. In October 2018, Shueisha released the manga’s 36th compiled book volume. In August 2019, Viz Media released the 36th volume in North America.
The second television anime adaptation of the manga debuted in Japan in 2011 and lasted 148 episodes. In 2014, the final episode aired.
