Animelly : The point is, he's donne exactly the same on his past series. And he said himself at the start of Hunterx Hunter that "this time, I'll try not to flee and stop in the middle". So yeah, it's laziness.
FUCK YEAH. I doubted it when the source was uncertain earlier on. But now. Seriously, made my day.
It's amazing to see a childhood anime get the recognition it deserves.
Whether this is a sequel to the Greed Island Final OVA or a reboot, this is delicious news. I hope this means the manga is coming off hiatus. I also hope everything is well with Togashi-sensei.
