Yoshihiro Togashi had gone on hiatus due to serious lower back pain

A page on the Shonen Jump+ website announced that Yoshihiro Togashi is resuming his Hunter × Hunter manga in the Ankoku Tairiku (Dark Continent) arc. This year's 16th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine 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.
