Yoshihiro Yogashi’s Hunter x Hunter manga has gained a reputation for its long and frequent hiatuses, which have frustrated fans of the manga for over a decade now. The manga has just returned from another year-long hiatus, and after almost half a decade of waiting, we are finally getting a new volume out later this year.
This was announced in the cover of the 20th issue of Weekly Shounen Jump! magazine, which stated that the Vol. 33 tankoubon compilation for the manga will be coming out in Japan on June 3, 2016.
This is the first time a new volume has been released for the hiatus-ridden manga since Vol. 32 was released back in December 2012.
When the latest hiatus was first announced last August 2014, 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. After some time, the manga’s return to last “indefinitely,” which fans kinda expected as Yoshihiro Togashi is known for his long and frequent hiatuses which often last for more years.
