Manga had resumed in April after 2-year hiatus

This year's 31st issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that Yoshihiro Togashi's Hunter × Hunter manga is going on an indefinite hiatus. The magazine will announce a resumption date for the manga when it has been decided.

The manga had resumed in April after a two-year hiatus since 2014's combined 37th/38th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump in August 2014. What was initially a two-week hiatus for the author's serious lower back pain extended until April 2016.

Shueisha shipped the manga's 33rd volume (seen right) – the first compiled book volume for the series since December 2012 – on June 3. Viz Media released the 32nd compiled book 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.
