HUNTERxHUNTER made its debut in 1998, followed shortly by an anime series in 1999. The reboot of the anime came in 2011, as the "Elections arc" will begin this July.
Togashi has already gone on hiatus numerous times in the past, as the previous chapter was last published in March of 2012.
I've been waiting for this.
And it seems like his wife will be making profits again, so I'm already worried as to when I'll be able to read his manga again.
Oh right, his wife's Sailor Moon will get an anime reboot. Amazing couple.
He'll be going on a break again starting next week.
The anime's done already, so why not?
Stop working so hard.
Must be resuming because FF14 is too boring
Is it true that he's on hiatus because of net games?
Come to Dragon Quest 10.
That game is just chill.
This probably means that he’s settled down with DraQue 10 already
As long as Square Enix doesn't do anything, Togashi is supposed to work
Togashi probably has run out of games to play w
Well, DQ10 wasn't really good anyway
He probably had an argument over a guild in FF14 and broke up with his party. That must be it.
It's already been 2 years and 3 months, huh. At least the hiatus this time wasn't as difficult. I must've lost interest already.
I read it for a bit at the store, and I though that his work has deteriorated so much and there won't be any problem even if he just moves on to a monthly magazine
He's about to break down? Is he sick or something?
I've been waiting for this (´・ω・`)
The series has been running for 16 years, huh. It's been on for as long as ONE PIECE, huh.
I guess the problem now is how much longer he'll be able to keep up his motivation.
I thought that he lost the will to work because of how crappy the new anime is. Gon-san's episode was the only good one, though.
I think he'll grow tired of this midway like Yuyu Hakusho. Maybe I should sell it while it's still valuable.
Fans will grow cold if you keep them waiting for too long. I think that the author of Bastard couldn't even care less anymore.
Togashi worships Bastard's Hagiwara, and he probably dreams of going on the downturn and fade out, just like him, right?
At least this guy is more trustworthy than that guy from Bastard
Wow, Togashi did his job
It's like seeing which will come first, my death or Hunter ending
HunterxHunter, Berserk, Beet. I want these to finish before I die, but it might be tough for the people other than Togashi.
Everyone's so nice to him. So you're all nice to people who have talent, huh.
Unlike One Piece and Naruto, his manga is good even if he just dilly-dallies with his work, so I just can't bring myself to bash him
This guy just resumed and he's already saying that he's about to break down? Is this guy even serious?
I’ve already lost interest
He just made a precautionary strike. It won't be a surprise anymore even if he goes on another vacation.
I read the new chapter, and I thought that he only has 2 choices left: either to keep doing until he finishes it for god knows how many years or he'll get tired and just ditch the whole thing altogether ww
He's already got a loyal following so he'll be fine even if he takes a hiatus
So his drawings will once again look like doodles starting next week?
Even if he manages to finish Hunter by chance, it'll probably be impossible for him to do another series. If he can, maybe it'll be a short series like LEVEL-something -- which might still even be doubtful.
Does this mean that he's saved up material good for 2 years? If so, then will he continue with the series for at least 2 years?
If doing a series at a weekly pace is tough, then he can opt to go monthly.
But it's still interesting = justice. And that's why Togashi is forgiven.
I admit that the manga is good, but the anime isn't at all w
I read it at the shop and it was quite good
Whatever, but if he wants to do grotesque stuff then he should go publish his stuff in seinen (young men) magazines instead. This guy's stuff makes me feel sick and I don't want to read things like that in shonen magazines.
This guy's manga is by far the most interesting one in Jump right now. This week's storyline gave me goosies.
This is true for Togashi, but if he puts effort in his drawings then I get worried that he'll run out of gas pretty quickly. The art in his comeback chapter was good, but I get the feeling that he'll start taking a break on the week after next and then will enter a 1 and a half year hiatus in 2 months.
I've never read the series once, but would it still be fun even if I started just now? I'd love to try reading if the story's intense. One Piece was too light for me, and I just dropped it midway. I've never read Berserk yet.
If he were doing this, I would have wanted him to resume when One Piece's mini break ends too. Now I'll buy JUMP for 2 weeks just for the sake of Hunter.
They say that there are a lot of mangakas whose abilities deteriorate, or they lose ideas when they take long breaks, but it's really such a mystery that there's no worry about that kind of thing for Togashi.
I read the chapter. His ability to immediately draw in the reader is quite something. I honestly think that his skills as a mangaka are amazing to totally make the Ant arc a thing of the past in his 1st chapter back.
I'm actually surprised that he's taken such a long time off from work
なんつーか やはりマンガは絵が上手いかよりも、 話が面白いかどうかだと思ったわ。
しかし、今のジャンプはハンターしか読むマンガが無い。 ブリーチとかナルトとか、グダグダ続けてるだけで内容が薄い。 休んででももっと話を練ればいいのに。
HUNTERxHUNTER really is good. And recently, I also thought that Yamikin Ushijima-kun was fun too.
This once again made me realize that having a good story is much better than having good drawings for a manga.
But HUNTER's the only manga that I'll be reading in Jump now. Bleach and Naruto are just dragging on endlessly, with such a shallow storyline. I'd prefer that they take a hiatus too and come up with a better story.
One Piece on the other hand is too messy and there are just too many volumes, I gave up on reading it.
クラピカの映画は面白かったの？ 冨樫がストーリーを考えたんでしょ？ 個人的には冨樫より冨樫弟の方に復帰して欲しい 彼の描くエロ漫画は本当に素晴らしかった ふたなり成分がかなり多いことを除けば、だが
I read the chapter, and did feel that he's starting to become weak due to his long time off from production...
Was the Kurapika movie any good? Togashi made the story, right? Personally, I would have preferred Togashi's younger brother to make a comeback instead. The ero-mangas he drew were really wonderful. If you take out the hermaphrodite components, though.
As expected, when L'Arc starts to go active, Togashi will too
I guess you can call his comeback a success if he can manage to write enough material for one volume
16 years ago, no one probably thought that Togashi, who abruptly ended Yuyu Hakusho in the middle of the Makai saga, would keep on doing Hunter for such a long time. Mangakas these days, when they want to try something new, they won't make a new one but instead just try to stuff in all those ideas and elements in the current series that they're running.
Well, Togashi produced massive hits with Yuyu and Hunterx2 so he's got no problems with money

Bleach and Naruto both have over 50 volumes out, while Hunter only has around 30, right? He's gone on way too many breaks.
He's like the emperor with the new clothes
Won't Jump be in dire straits when One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach come to an end? These 3 are about to end already, right?
ワンピースは作者が病気でやばいらしいからもっと休めと思うけど、 休ませてもらえないんだろうな（笑 このままでは尾田はマジで病死すると思う。 どーでもいいけど。
HUNTERxHUNTER has too many breaks in between, but I actually think that's alright as long as it's still fun to read.
In contrast, I wouldn't mind Bleach and Naruto to take a break, just so they can try to beef up the stories a bit more. They're too shallow at the moment.
I want One Piece to take more breaks on the other hand because of the author's illness, but I don't think the editors will allow him to. LOL. At this rate, I honestly think Oda will just die due to his sickness.
Not that I care anyway.
