The series that just returned last October 24 will no longer continue its weekly serialization moving forward. Hunter x Hunter has been on hiatus since November 2018 previously.
The editorial department at Weekly Shōnen Jump stated in a letter published in the issue that once it has clear specifics about the manga’s reappearance and how it will be serialized in the future, it will be revealed in the magazine.
Hunter x Hunter was first serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump in March 1998, though the manga has frequently gone on extended hiatuses since 2006. As of November 2022, its chapters had been collected in 37 tankōbon volumes.
It was adapted into a TV 62-episode anime series directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi and produced by Nippon Animation, which aired on Fuji Television from October 1999 to March 2001. Nippon Animation later developed three separate original video animations (OVAs) comprising 30 episodes, which were released in Japan from 2002 to 2004. From October 2011 through September 2014, a second TV anime series by Madhouse ran on Nippon Television, spanning 148 episodes, with two animated films released in 2013.
Viz Media has been publishing the manga in English in North America since April 2005. Both TV series were also licensed by Viz Media, with the first series airing on the Funimation Channel in 2009 and the second series airing on Adult Swim’s Toonami programming block from April 2016 to June 2019.
Hunter x Hunter has been a tremendous critical and financial success, becoming one of Shueisha’s best-selling manga series with over 84 million copies in circulation as of July 2022.
The return of the anime adaptation is yet to be announced. Fans are waiting for its possible return with news of Togashi’s health in steady improvement.
