When you work on a series as long as some authors do, you end up taking breaks along the way for a variety of reasons. Yoshihiro Togashi has done that a few times amid the run for Hunter x Hunter, which began in 1998 and has had 340 chapters so far. The series went on its most recent hiatus in 2012 which was compiled into the thirty-second volume of the series – which Viz Media just released here in North America. Now, after a two year break, Togashi is set to come back to the title this June in Weekly Shonen Jump. Details are expected next week about the return in the magazine, but it’s worth noting that when the series does kick off, it will run simultaneously in the English digital edition that Viz Media brings out.
The property originally received an anime adaptation early on in 1991 with a 62 episode run that was followed a few years later by a 30 episode OVA series. It was relaunched in 2011 under Madhouse where they started from the beginning again and played closer to the manga. It’s currently run 125 episodes and generated two feature films in 2013, all while no new manga was coming out for the most part.
