As if the recent news of a new volume of Hunter x Hunter manga finally hitting shelves in November wasn’t enough, fans will soon have new chapters to read. Yoshihiro Togashi’s popular series is ready to return to the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump, and it will be doing so on October 24 in Japan, with a simulpub already lined up for VIZ Media’s English version of Shonen Jump on October 23.
This marks almost exactly four years since the Hunter x Hunter manga last went on hiatus back in November 2018.

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…?”
