Shonen Jump Site Teases April for Hunter x Hunter Manga's Return

posted on 2016-03-15 12:00 EDT

The official Japanese website for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine posted a new image this week to tease "Jump's great blitzes in April!!" In addition to the Naruto Gaiden manga one-shot on April 25 and the two-chapter Yu-Gi-Oh! story on April 11 and 18, the image also shows the Hunter × Hunter manga.

The separate Shonen Jump+ website had announced that Yoshihiro Togashi is resuming his Hunter × Hunter manga in the Ankoku Tairiku (Dark Continent) arc. However, that website did not state specifically when the manga will return. Both websites note that this year's 16th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump will reveal more details on Saturday.

The manga has been on hiatus since 2014's combined 37th/38th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump in August 2014. What was initially a two-week hiatus for serious lower back pain has extended until now.

Shueisha shipped the 32nd compiled volume in Japan in December 2012, and Viz Media released the same volume in North America in April 2014. The manga inspired two television anime series; the latest one ran from 2011 until 2014. The manga also inspired two anime films and several original video anime titles.
