Hunter x Hunter is ready to make its long-awaited return, everyone! After four years of hiatus, the hit franchise is back in action behind the scenes thanks to its creator. Yoshihiro Togashi confirmed as much this week on his brand-new Twitter, and Hunter x Hunter fans are thriving in the wake of this unexpected update.
The whole thing went down today when an anonymous Twitter posted a photo of a manga draft. It was there the account, which allegedly belongs to Togashi, said they had four more chapters to work on. Obviously, this led fans to geek out about Hunter x Hunter making a comeback, but the account's authenticity was quickly questioned.

It wasn't until a famous manga creator commented on the situation that fans began buzzing in earnest. Yusuke Murata, the mangaka behind One-Punch Man, is part of the Shueisha family much like Togashi. Murata surprised fans when he followed the alleged Hunter x Hunter account, and then he posted the following message to clarify what he knew about the page: "We're told this is from its person himself."

As you can see, Murata understands this new page to be Togashi himself, and that would mean the update on Hunter x Hunter is legit. Shueisha has yet to comment on the ordeal yet, but for now, fans are feeling confident about the big revelation. So if you are not caught up with Hunter x Hunter, you might want to binge it sooner rather than later!
