Why was Hunter x Hunter on a hiatus for 4 years?
Suppose you have been following the author of the series, Yoshihiro Togashi, on Twitter or are updated on his condition. In that case, you might know why there were no chapters for the series for four following years after the release of Hunter x Hunter Chapter 390 on November 26th, 2018.
As of this writing, there are a total of 391 chapters in the series, with the latest chapter released on the 23rd of October, 2022. There are a total of 26 volumes of Hunter x Hunter combined, a total of 390 chapters serialized in the weekly shonen jump magazine since 1998. This is only after a year of One Piece’s serialization, and yet the difference in the number of chapters is great.
The sole reason for the inconsistency in the release of the new Hunter x Hunter Chapters was the author’s health, as he shared on Twitter recently. Yoshihiro Togashi, now 56 years old, has been struggling with many difficulties that made his work hard. He has excruciating back and chest pain that does not even let him sleep, let alone work.
However, after he promised to deliver the volume to the fans, the author managed to work on 10 new chapters of the series, which are scheduled to release in the new issues of the weekly shonen jump. If his health improves, then Yoshihiro can manage to draw and write even more, and we may see new chapters released following the release of the 10 chapters of Hunter x Hunter or so.
Current Hunter x Hunter Plot
The current Hunter x Hunter plot focuses on two different characters, which include Kurapika and Hisoka. The former is searching for his clan’s scarlet eyes seem to have been in the hands of one of the princes gathered on the gigantic whale-shaped boat headed to a mysterious place.
While the latter seems to be on a quest to kill the members of the Phantom Troupe after his fight with the leader Chrollo and later seemingly kills two more members of the group who are now also gathered on the gigantic boat. Thus, the return of Hunter x Hunter is something fans have been waiting for a while now, and the new chapter is scheduled to release soon.
