With anime slowly taking over the world, fans have to be glad to see some classics making their way back. One such anime has to be Hunter x Hunter. While it began as a manga in Shueisha’s magazine in 1998, it has since become an adapted anime series. The series is also currently in its 401 chapter, which fans are waiting for. While fans have had to wait a while for any updates on the latest chapter, it looks like that wait is over.

After making a surprise announcement and returning to social media, the creator of the manga announced that new chapters were already underway. But now, following months of silence, Yoshihiro Togashi has made another big statement.

Recently, Yoshihiro Togashi, the creator of Hunter x Hunter took to X (formerly Twitter) to give fans an update on the latest manga chapter. He shared a peek at a manuscript with a few outlines with the caption, “Start over,” which sent his fans into a frenzy, hinting at working on the manga. This sudden post comes after the artist had taken a seven-month hiatus from the platform after announcing the continuation of the manga.

Following his Hunter x Hunter update, Togashi fell back into a hiatus due to severe health issues. Over the years, he has revealed that he finds it difficult is sit for long periods of time. While that may be the reason behind the delays in new chapters, it has never hindered the artist’s amazing quality of work. Just as fans were starting to give up on the hope that the manga would make its way back, the Japanese manga artist has reignited that flame.

In fact, the only update they got was the fact that all the upcoming Hunter x Hunter chapters would be put forth in a different format instead of in the Weekly Shonen Jump. But while fans may have some new changes to embrace, it may still be a while before they receive any confirmation about any of the upcoming chapters and their release dates. But at least they have Hunter x Hunter season 5 on Netflix to keep them company.
