It’s Official: No New Hunter x Hunter Episodes in 2015 Puts End to Writer’s 25-Year-Long Record

2015’s final issue of Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine included no new episodes of hit manga Hunter x Hunter, ending a 25-year-long record for series creator Yoshihiro Togashi.

It’s quite something when simply whether an episode of a manga appears or not in a magazine becomes the subject of considerable attention, but that’s exactly what’s happened with Yoshihiro Togashi’s internationally popular manga and anime series,Hunter x Hunter.


Togashi, while considered an absolutely brilliant story-teller, is also notorious for taking long periods off from comic writing, even from the time he was working on his earlier hit, Yu Yu Hakusho back in the 90s. On occasion, the explanation given for his time off has been illness or lower back pain, but the real reason isn’t quite clear, as there are stories of him having run away from his work and hiding himself when he felt he couldn’t handle the grueling weekly serial pace. In short, it’s now somewhat accepted that Togashi can only produce work in relatively short spurts with long periods of rest in between, and it’s become a running joke that at any given time, some fan somewhere is crying out, “Get to work, Togashi! ( Togahsi, shigoto shiro! )” Now, while we’re sure the fans mean that in a loving way, we can also understand their frustration, as Hunter x Hunter has appeared in fewer than half (42.4% to be precise, according to Nico Nico Pedia) of the Weekly Shonen Jump volumes published since the series began in March of 1998.
