This year’s 31st issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that Yoshihiro Togashi’s Hunter x Hunter manga will be going on another indefinite hiatus. The magazine will also announce a resumption date for the manga when it has been decided.
The manga had resumed in April after a painful two year hiatus since 2014’s combined 37th and 38th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump in August. Togashi originally planned to only take a two week hiatus for his lower back pain, but extended it until April 2016.
Shueisha distributed Hunter x Hunter‘s33rd volume – the first compiled book volume for the series since December 2012 – on June 6. Viz Media releasesd the 32nd volume in North America in April 2014. The manga inspired two hit television anime adaptions. The latest one ran from 2011 to 2014, and is also on hold, waiting for Togashi to write more. The manga also inspired two anime films and several original video anime titles.
