Book Stores Claim Hunter x Hunter is Finally 'Finished'
posted on by Eric Stimson
Yoshihiro Togashi's manga series Hunter x Hunter has been on hiatus since last August, with the most recent manga volume published in December 2012. Before that, the manga had been on hiatus from March 2012 to June 2014.
Apparently fed up with the erratic production schedule, BookOff and other Japanese bookstores have labelled Hunter x Hunter "finished" and are selling the 32 volumes as a "complete set" for 7,000-7,500 yen ($59-$63).
Reaction among Japanese fans is mostly resigned with comments like "It's like it's finished," and "I think it's better if it ended there", while others protest the labeling with"Hey, don't finish it!," "LOL, don't give up!"
