    Hopefully this one will be just as cool as the Hiei-Kurama from Yu Yu Hakusho, or even better!

    Re: Hunter x Hunter to return to Jump! (for short story)

    I'm in a conflictual state where I don't know exactly whether I should be glad for the few chapters we're getting or sad about the possibility of an immediate and long hiatus after this. Well either way I guess I'll just try to enjoy this mini arc as much as possible and hope for the best!...

    No seriously Togashi, just don't.

    oh, togashi. i guess the unknown world system is not yet finished, eh?
    can't wait to know the kuruta backstory. although this oneshot is more to do with the movie promotion, i think it is possible that the kurutas have a connection w/ the unknown world... you know, just to tie-in with this oneshot with the main story

    Or X/1999 level hiatus. Still waiting for new chapters after 2002...

    I'm happy he's writing again, and like others, I hope this also gives him some fuel to continue with the main story.

    Well, Togashi isn't obliged to his fans to finish the manga, and most likely he could stop if he wanted to, but Jump is a business, and one that has treated him with respect and seems to give him time, that lots of other mangaka don't seem to get (yes, I know it makes jump alot of money), so I just think Togashi should finish his manga, at least to respect for the people that employ him, even if he takes a chapter or 2 to wrap it up, (he doesn't have too, but I think it might cause a problem with jump.)

    The only thing that'd make Togashi stop slacking is if Shonen Jump threaten to cut him, and even then I doubt he really cares unless he's terribly bad at managing money, though since Shonen Jump gives you like a grace period of something like 20 weeks he'd be forced to at least wrap things up unless he wants Hunter to literally end in the middle of nowhere.

    Given that his wife also works as mangaka, I doubt He ever does that.

    Anyway, I'm excited.

    If Shueisha ever threatened to cut Togashi, which they wouldn't, he would just leave. He had no qualm leaving during the YuYu Hakusho fiasco. Togashi is a very smart man and has earned respect in the business for his no bullshit personality. He doesn't take crap, he does what he wants, when he wants and noone can tell him otherwise. Togashi once said after YuYu Hakusho he would never make another manga again. Shueisha begged him to come back following the success of YuYu Hakusho and he obliged. The simple fact of the matter is that Shueisha needs Togashi more than he needs them. They know that any time a manga with his name is in their magazine that it means money. Togashi has no need for money as both him and his wife can live off royalties for the rest of their lives. I don't see where you got this idea he is bad at money managing, the dude is rich and will not stop being rich.

    So why does Togashi take breaks? Simple, because he can. He left YuYu Hakusho at the height of it's popularity, noone had ever stood up to Jump in such a way before. He was sick and tired of their crap and he was the only one with enough balls to stand up for himself when he felt he was being wronged. Togashi came back to Jump under the condition he works his own schedule, they allow it because they need him.

    Hunter x Hunter will never be cancelled and Togashi will most likely continue it until he is knocking on deaths door. Manga is his life's work. He may be one of the more eccentric mangaka out there, but I sure as fuck respect him for being a man. I admire people who stand by what they believe and Togashi is a man that has always lived life that way.

    I don't mind him taking breaks because I know that I'd be doing the same in his position. He is nearing 50 and has never been in the most healthy state. I'd rather he take breaks each year then work himself to death and we get a hiatus forever. Togashi can keep going at the pace he is doing, I'm happy with it.

    From back when I had far too much time on my hands and would obsess over mangakas and learn as much about them as possible. A lot of research, it's all easy stuff to find, more so if you know some Japanese.

    Anyways just letting you all know I'll be posting a bit less over the next few weeks as work it very busy what with holidays and all.

    Ehh for the sake of all his fans who supported and bought the volumes, he kinda does need to at least give the series a ending if he wants to stop.....he's a wealthy man, but if no one liked his manga that wouldn't be the case. There is a bit of an obligation there. It'd also be a dick move to just flat out end it, especially when the anime rebooted a year ago.

    If he wanted to stop it he would have done so years ago. He clearly enjoys making the manga but at his age, health and family situation it's best he pace himself. I have no issues with it. Togashi isn't like the other mangaka in Jump. He will continue making the manga probably for the rest of his life.

    I'm just glad this is about Kurapika and not some random HxH sequel that advertently has nothing to do with HxH at all.

    Plus this shows that the new movie has inspired Togashi in some way and that he truly is enjoying watching his series get adapted a second time.

    Tell that to Hitman Reborn. Long-running popular shounen series can end in the middle of nowhere because the author or publishing company feels like it.

    Togashi's a lazy guy. But I still respect him and other authors like Oda who continue writing manga because they love doing it and don't stop just because they don't need it anymore.

    I'm... not really as excited for this as I should. I mean, of course it's great, more HxH is ALWAYS better.

    But it means we'll have to wait even LONGER for the continuation of the manga. What worries me isn't (necessarily) Togashi losing interest. The problems are: A zombie apocalypse could happen this year. Another type of apocalypse could happen this year. Togashi could get mentally ill. Where I live could get nuked. Where Togashi lives could get nuked. I could die. TOGASHI could die. I could go on forever...

    In short, the longer I go on with less HxH, my face gets progressively more like this:
