Hunter x Hunter Manga's Return Slated for April 18

posted on by Egan Loo

This year's 16th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Saturday that Yoshihiro Togashi is resuming his Hunter × Hunter manga on April 18. The manga will resume with the Ankoku Tairiku (Dark Continent) arc.

Shueisha shipped the manga's 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.

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 this year.

The Shonen Jump+ website announced on Tuesday that Yoshihiro Togashi is resuming the manga. The official Japanese website for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine then 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.
