Could be a nasty troll.
According to Shueisha's notice to bookstores, a new TV anime of Hunter x Hunter will be announced around the release of the 29th volume of the manga on August 4th. The first TV series was aired from 1999 to 2001 and three OVA series have been released.
Hunter X Hunter is easily one of the best anime adapatations I've ever seen. I'm in the minority that wants the dub to continue so I might wait to see if that will come back before inevitably giving up and watching subs (I heard Gon's japanese voice is the same as Naruto's. That's either really dissappointing or at least more fitting than Naruto)
I've hoped for a while that if Togashi can't continue (and really has hand problems instead of being an evil genius) he can somehow be involved with the anime team...somehow so we can continue this series even if he can't make the manga anymore.
This is because I selfishly don't want this series to have an unsatisfying or cliffhanger ending. It's my favorite shonen series outside of One Piece and Conan.
I have to comment on this even though nobody cares or reads this XD.
I first watched this anime many many years ago. I dropped it after one episode. Then, years later, I saw a clip on youtube. I wanted to watch the series. I thought that the begining was horrible and it felt somehow familiar. I started liking the series, even though more or less all main characters annoy me.
The style and feeling kept changing, not necessarily for better or worse, but very different. However, I'm very worried because of what I heard from the manga.
I'll definately watch this anyway, even if was insanity.
