News Hunter X Hunter Manga Reportedly Restarting in March

A poster on the Japanese 2ch message boards has reportedly obtained an early copy of the next issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump, which will advertise the March 3 return of Yoshihiro Togashi's Hunter X Hunter manga. This year's 14th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump will come out on that day, which is also reportedly the day before the release of Hunter X Hunter's 25th compiled volume. The adventure title was put on hold in issue #3 for 2008 (on sale December 17, 2007). If the title does return in March, the three-month hiatus will be relatively short — the previous hiatus infamously lasted from March 2006 to October 2007. Besides creating this hit manga, Togashi is best known for drawing Yu Yu Hakusho and marrying another popular artist, Sailor Moon's Naoko Takeuchi. Viz Media has been releasing the Hunter X Hunter manga in North America.
