The official website of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump revealed on Wednesday that Yoshihiro Togashi's Hunter × Hunter manga will resume on June 26. The manga's 34th compiled book volume is also slated for release on the same day.
The manga went on indefinite hiatus in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine last June. The magazine said at that time that it would announce a resumption date for the manga when it has been decided.
The manga had resumed in April 2016 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.
