Ok, thank you.
If it's about the anime... I think it could be a filler arc or a timeslot change.
Obviously I'm looking forward to Chimera Ant arc, but a short filler arc between GI and CA could be a good idea if it's well written. It would develop Kite and his team.
What if its a special or something? To celebrate the 15th Anni ? That's only like 2 weeks away...
return from hiatus
Its funny though because wasn't this supposed to be a " brief hiatus "
Anyway.. damn. Togashi is really getting lazy now... Doesn't redraw vol. 32, and now he doesn't even return for the 15th Anniversary...
Well if he actually had helped more with the movie, then he'd have a good excuse xD
Well I'm sure that he at least wont abandon us like he did with YuYuHakusho fans
Technically, didn't that Kurapika manga special Togashi did back in, what was it? December? count as being "off" hiatus?
Anyone have an idea as to the reason for this hiatus? I fear for the anime.....it's IMO probably the best anime going on right now but if Togashi continues like this I'm worried what will happen. Greed Island is going to end in like 8 episodes.....
Sickness? Nobody really know the reason why.No fear,there is still two more arc.And the arc after greed island is really long.
I guess the kurapika one-shot can be considered as being off hiatus.This give Togashi a reason to take a longer break...
Well It could be lots of stuff... DQ jokes aside, the most real motive for the hiatus are the volume remakes that he does. This hiatus wont probably take much longer, for who waited 1 year, just 2 or 3 months are nothing ^^
Togashi did go on hiatus once due to illness. He has said many times though that he works at his own pace, simple as that. He will work on HxH when he feels, simple as that.
I think we all need to understand how much work it takes to draw manga. I've been trying to draw my own comic for some time, and I can barely manage finishing a single page per week at my current pace. Of course, I'm also full-time student at a University and drawing is just one of a number of my hobbies I do in my free time, so I guess the comparision is far from perfect.
Every time there's a hiatus there's a rumor that he's got a disease of some sorts. I don't think Shonen Jump discloses that kind of stuff (reason for hiatus) unless it turns out to be life threatening (so you know they probably won't be coming back).
Drawing manga isn't hard if you've the resources Togashi has. Yes he has no assistants but that's his problem, not to mention the time HXH has been on hiatus far exceeds any reasons related to the pace of the work. Unlike the major hiatus during the Ant arc, at this point I don't see a particular plot issue. It was difficult to resolve how Meryem is supposed to be defeated but right now you can definitely wing it for a while on the new Dark Continent arc, and anything involving Kurapika would be fairly predictable too.
