After four long years, the Hunter x Hunter fandom is alive once more. Reports surfaced this week that the hit series had resumed work behind the scenes, and creator Yoshihiro Togashi was behind the whole update. Of course, the news traveled fast, and fans are dying to know everything there is behind the comeback. So of course, ComicBook is here to breakdown what we know so far:
And this time? Well, it seems Togashi is starting to work on a new chapter, and fans are geeking out over the surprise update.
Taking to Twitter, Togashi posted a photo from his draft desk, and it shows him sketching on a paper labeled '7' as you can see above. This comes just days after the artist shared a similar photo of him with a page labeled '6'. It seems his draft of the previous chapter is done, and Togashi is now putting his energy into this seventh chapter.
Of course, this teaser does not give anything major away about Hunter x Hunter or its comeback. All we know is that Togashi is sticking to his work and making quick progress despite his time away from the series. After all, Hunter x Hunter went on hiatus back in 2018, and it has been missing in action for over 1,200 days now. But clearly, Togashi is eager to close that streak with an update ASAP.
If you are not caught up with Hunter x Hunter, you can read its manga via Viz Media or Manga Plus. You can find the series' official synopsis below for more details:
"Hunters are a special breed, dedicated to tracking down treasures, magical beasts and even other people. But such pursuits require a license, and less than one in a hundred thousand can pass the grueling qualification exam. Those who do pass gain access to restricted areas, amazing stores of information and the right to call themselves "Hunters." Can Gon, a country boy, follow his father and join their ranks?"
