Here we go again! Just when we thought that Hunter X Hunter manga author Yoshihiro Togashi has finally settled down and is getting better, he goes on yet another hiatus, and this time, the 41st issue of Weekly Shounen Jump! magazine has announced that this new hiatus will now last indefinitely. The last time he went on a hiatus which had an indefinite length lasted more than two whole years.
The magazine once again cited the main reason for this new hiatus, which is his medical condition. When the new hiatus was first announced, the reason cited was that the manga author was experiencing severe back pains and that the hiatus will only last 2 weeks. However, a week later, Jump! announced that the hiatus will last longer because Togashi was still experiencing back pains, though they did say that he is already receiving medication.
This would deal another big blow to the fans who have waited two years for the author’s return from his previous medical condition. Let’s just hope this one would be a whole lot shorter than his 2-year hiatus which he just came back from last June 2014.
