In a tweet posted on Oct 2, Togashi shared a photo of a portion of a manuscript with the enigmatic message, “Start over,” setting the community abuzz with excitement and anticipation.
Togashi previously disclosed in March that he had completed Chapter 401 of the series. However, he refrained from confirming a specific date for the manga’s return to serialization, leaving fans to wonder when they would be able to delve back into the captivating world of Hunter x Hunter.

The series then went back on hiatus in January due to Togashi’s health concerns. During this period, Shueisha, the publisher of Hunter x Hunter, issued a statement confirming that the manga would no longer follow a weekly serialized format.
