Hunter X Hunter Manga's Return Slated for June 2

posted on by Egan Loo

This year's combined 22nd/23rd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that Yoshihiro Togashi will resume his Hunter X Hunter manga in the 27th issue on June 2. The tagline for the manga's return reads, "What is being aimed for is darkness. What is being hunted is hope. What blocks the way is endless despair."

Shueisha and Viz Media announced on Tuesday that the manga's return will run in the Japanese and English versions of Weekly Shonen Jump simultaneously. Togashi had gone on hiatus after his longest uninterrupted run of the manga in March 2012. Shueisha shipped the 32nd compiled volume in Japan in December 2012, and Viz Media just released the same volume in North America this month.

The manga inspired two television anime series including one that has been running since 2011. It also inspired two anime films and several original video anime titles.
