The new Hunter X Hunter manga hiatus (yes, there is another one) was expected to last for only two weeks, however, a new magazine scan from 40th issue of Weekly Shounen Jump! magazine has confirmed that the hiatus will actually be longer than that.
The magazine announced that Hunter X Hunter manga creator Yoshihiro Togashi will not return in issue #41 as expected because he is still suffering from lower back pain. No exact return date has been announced so this would be another indefinite hiatus from Togashi. Jump did say in a previous announcement that he is in fact undergoing treatment.
Togashi just came back from a 2-year hiatus for health reasons last June and his frequent and long hiatuses has been known to be very frustrating to fans. Let’s just hope for his speedy recovery for now.
