Hunter x Hunter, one of the most beloved shonen manga series of all time, has been confirmed to be returning following the viral success of a tweet purporting to be from the series’ author, Yoshihiro Togashi.
The Japanese Twitter community has taken notice of a new Twitter account’s tweet, which has now gone viral. There are four more chapters to come for the time being, according to the tweet’s caption, which features an image of a piece of paper that appears to be an early manga panel.
Togashi sensei has completed six new Hunter x Hunter chapters and is currently working on four more. The post received over 200k likes in just a few hours, but because the account was only recently created, no one knew for sure if it belonged to Hunter x Hunter’s creator or not.

Author Yasuke Murata, who is also a Twitter follower of this account, lends credence to its veracity. With the comment “I was with the guy myself,” they’ve also retweeted this post.
To some extent, the aforementioned RT indicates the return of the Hunter x Hunter manga. The exact publication date for the new manga chapters has not been made public. However, thanks to a recent Tweet, we now know that there will be at least a further ten chapters. It has been nearly four years since the last chapter of Hunter x Hunter was released. Even though Togashi is only returning for a few more chapters, it is still fantastic news for fans of the manga. The exact return date for the anime series is, of course, still a mystery.
Because of Togashi’s ongoing health problems, the popular manga series has previously undergone several hiatuses. Back discomfort has plagued the series’ creator for years, limiting his ability to sketch the characters.
Since March 1998, the Hunter x Hunter manga has been serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump. Mad House turned Hunter x Hunter into an anime series that aired for a total of 148 episodes from October 2011 to September 2014. Nearly 1.2 million people have rated Hunter x Hunter an average of 9.08 out of 10 on My Anime List.
