Mark your calendars, because the Hunter x Hunter manga will resume serialization on October 24, 2022. The first chapter of its return will be in Weekly Shonen Jump Issue 47 2022. Perhaps coincidentally, that is around when the Togashi Yoshihiro – puzzle – exhibition will take place at the Mori Arts Center Gallery in Tokyo. The exhibition will be available from October 28, 2022, to January 9, 2023. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]
Hunter x Hunter ended on Chapter 390, which appeared in November 2018. Aside from the return of the manga, tankobon collectors will also be able to get their hands on Volume 37. Volume 37 of Hunter x Hunter will appear in Japanese bookstores on November 4, 2022. Before Togashi’s manga went on hiatus, the story was in the middle of the Succession Contest Arc. Unlike the more action-focused Greed Island and Chimera Ant arcs before this one, the Succession Contest Arc is a story that centers more around political intrigue and conspiracies.
The Togashi Yoshihiro – puzzle – exhibition will feature over 350 pieces of character settings and roughs of Togashi’s signature works. You will be able to see art of Level E, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Hunter x Hunter. The exhibition is called “puzzle” because a creative work is a puzzle made up of “characters,” “settings,” and “the ability to portray something.” The artworks that will be at the exhibition are all pieces of Togashi’s puzzles.
The Hunter x Hunter manga will restart serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump on October 24, 2022.
