Following countless hiatuses due to author Yoshihiro Togashi’s health woes, the Hunter x Hunter manga finally made the move away from weekly publication back in December 2022. Now new chapters can be announced and published at the author and publisher’s leisure, and fans have their expectations in check. Speaking of expectations, Togashi recently tweeted a photo of a manuscript with the caption “Start over,” showing that more is in the works.
As for when to expect it, that’s anyone’s guess. Togashi said Chapter 401 was complete back in March, but there’s no indication as to when we should expect the next installment in the pages of Jump.
VIZ Media publishes Hunter x Hunter in English and gave this description for the first volume:
Gon might be a country boy, but he has high aspirations. Despite his Aunt Mito’s protests, Gon decides to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a legendary Hunter. The Hunter hopefuls begin their journey by storm-tossed ship, where Gon meets Leorio and Kurapika, the only other applicants who aren’t devastated by bouts of seasickness.
Having survived the terrors of the high seas, Gon and his companions now have to prove their worth in a variety of tests in order to find the elusive Exam Hall. And once they get there, will they ever leave alive…?
