The 18th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shounen Jump of 2018 announced on Monday that Yoshihiro Togashi's Hunter x Hunter will take a short break. Togashi apologized for the hiatus announcement and promised that his series will return as soon as possible.

The manga resumed serialization in January 2018 following a hiatus that began last September. Shueisha shipped the 35th compiled volume on February 2, which sold 477,485 units and placed first in the Oricon weekly rankings.

The manga was adapted into two TV anime series: initially in 1999 by Nippon Animation and then a 2011 version by Madhouse. The studios also produced theatrical adaptations and several OVAs.

North American publisher Viz Media licensed both the anime and manga series and shipped the 34th manga volume on March 6 and the third Blu-ray set last October.

now I am waiting for Berserk to go vacation.


Didn't it? All the previous chapters had the "See you in late *insert following month*", but the last chapter had "See you next time".

You’ll never see it coming

[insert Persona 5 meme here]


That meme doesn't work here because even a blind person would've seen this coming.

Come on people, he has a serious health issue that hinders his writing. We did know this was going to happen. Also I know i'm asking for a miracle, but any chance Madhouse decide to give Hunter X Hunter another go?


They honestly wouldn't get very far. Even if Madhouse was cool enough to pick it back up, which is hard to say considering they never like to work on anything twice hajime no ippo is the only exception.

It'd probably leave viewers super unsatisfied if they'd pick it back up for the what, the 42 chapters he's done as to where the manga left off......

I will waiting for the next season.

Apr 1, 3:27 PM by Haryounthoro26

to be fair he released a good number of chapters

or maybe I'm just annoyed because Miura is now on monthly release and still releasing only 4 chapters lol

anyway I hope Togashi is all right and that this hiatus won't be long!

people calling this Hiatus X Hiatus are not really joking

Are we sure this isn't an April Fools Day thing?

Not surprising that the manga went on hiatus again after releasing 10 chapters in a row. Hoping the hiatus lasts half a year or less.
