I don't think we've ever gotten a solid confirmation on the rumors as to why Togashi has long hiatuses, I mean the health rumors are just run of the mill already (what dampens its credibility is the fact that Togashi was seen at some convention in good health when the health rumor was circulating). As for family well... he had a long hiatus prior to his wife's pregnancy and perhaps it extended when she got pregnant. I think we only had the whole Togashi caring for his family info when he wrote it down in the sleeve of an HXH volume. Long story short Jump's pretty secretive as to what his reasons are.
There are multiple speculations .....
1.) he's sick again ...
2.) he has a kid take care of
3.) he wants to play an new video game
4.) he is re-drawing the manga chapters for takubon release
5.) he just wants to take a break for the sake of taking a break
there just speculation ..., who knows what he wants to do rumors fly around and get distorted or sent out of proportion.
I hope he comes back in a few months though :\ first time i read HxH was right before the Major Hiatus so i wonder ...
Well, togashi said he was going to work harder this year but publishing to volumes in a row hardly counts..... Last year he did two in a year I think so I guess it is very possible he'd do at least 2 more volumes this year so perhaps the manga would be back by the end of the summer.
I would love if He's re drawing some parts, because...Well, you know.
Anyway, I'm used to this so I don't care much. After...what? 6 or 7 hiatus? I just wait for them.
HUNTERxHUNTER releases have been intermittent since the series started, but he seems to be concentrating his "off" periods into solid blocks, these days, rather than staying down for seven weeks, then releasing a chapter, then taking three weeks, and so forth. The scenario we have now is probably preferable to the former arrangement, when he was sometimes guilty of submitting an 8-page chapter.
Hopefully he's just redrawing scenes, but I said that before he went on the big hiatus, so...
I really don't mind the bad drawing scene that much, as long as it is fix when the volume version came up. I buy all the volumes anyway.
As for the hiatus, I really hope it's not long. I was getting happy about consistent chapter (getting past the 10 mark, like the way hiatus start in chapter 270, 280, 290), but bang! One more hiatus again...
yeah, i was just getting excited again with hxh, then boom, another hiatus. lately, im even more excited with a hxh chapter than with a naruto's but oh well. sooner or later, id forget about hxh again, then, hopefully by then, there'd already be a few chaps of hxh to read.
I agree with most people in saying that this hiatus is a disappointment. I had actually just caught up to the manga recently. I think it was about a year ago when i first watched the anime, and did not know the manga was still ongoing. I was thrilled when i found out and caught up in 2 weeks i think . It's a pity that there's another hiatus but hopefully it won't be too long. This will be my first experience of a long hiatus, just as i was enjoying the story so much.
On another note i think this would be a perfect time to announce a new anime/ova. Lol i know i've set my hopes high lol but it would be a nice feeling to feel the void and maybe it would encourage Togashi to come back. I really wanna see the chimera ant arc so bad, due to me watching my dvd boxsets of hxh and reminding me of how awesome it is
If we do get a new OVA, I really hope they get Furuhashi back as director; I wasn't all that fond of the directors for Greed Island. Furuhashi inputted some splendid visual cues in his work--and I think he could pull off the darker elements of the Chimera Ant arc with aplomb.
It's been some rumors flying around about tohashi having trouble drawing HxH, some people say it's because his back, others say it's because he's spending time with his kids or playing video games....
Now i dont know what to believe, what do you think?
So far, I really don't know why Togashi is taking so many breaks.
