I think his problem is that illness he has and which noone seems to know about. Or maybe he just wants to take it easy and enjoy life since he is rich and tired of drawing. He'll be back as soon as he feels like coming back. We fans can't do little to nothing there.
He is lazy sometimes, that's a fact, it's clear when you see some drawings, yet he is able to write a story of that quality.
I wondered before if he was continuing because of the readers but to be able to write a story like that you need to like your job, that what I think. He could hire an artist to draw for him but he doesn't do that, some rumors say he doesn't even have assistants. I guess he is a perfectionist, but despite that he neglects art sometimes, he even likes to change his style, this is odd...
It's clear that he likes drawing mangas but sometimes it gives the impression he doesn't care.
Maybe he plans to redraw all HXH volumes at the end of the story.

Any chance HunterX jumps right back in when Naruto ends? Pretty sure Jump would love to have that happen, a substitute for Naruto.
I agree that there is probably a lot of procrastination involved, and as you already said, since storytelling is very intimate you cannot even blame togashi for that.
It would be awesome if he would be as talkative as SIU with his afterwards and blog, but i guess he is too old for that fancy internetz stuff
It'd be a pity if the anime just ran out, but let's don't think about that yet.
There are always possible OVA's, too.
I also don't think that this is about togashi returning soon or not.
When togashi returns, we get between 20-30 chapters. That leaves room for one arc or maybe 2 smaller arcs or about that size, and then it's at least half a year no HxH again.
BY that time, the anime would hit the end, anyway.
Back then, gon and killuah flying to an uncertain future with the card from greed island was a good ending point for the first anime.
This time, i think gon and killuah's parting and gon trying to get to the dark continent with gin will be a good ending, either.
would you guys be ok with it, if Togashi ended the manga when Gon met his father?
Togashi continuing the story instead of ending it doesn't mean he cares, it could also mean he's keeping the story open so he can go back to working on it if he ever needed more money. He has no excuse for such a long hiatus, and knowing that his hiatus is indefinite makes me not want to read the manga just to stop at an interesting place and then losing interest after a while. Given the hiatus, it's hard to believe he cares at all.
Gon finding Ging was just a milestone. This isn't a deeply personal story of him finding his father for familial reasons - finding Ging represented nothing more than proof of Gon's abilities. No hugging, no tears. Ending it at Ging would be just as bad imo as ending it in the middle of a story arc.
I won't be happy until I know the conclusion of kurapika vs. genei ryodan
edit: wasn't true apparently Y_Y

and now we have january and still no news :P
no i dont think it will be ever completed
how long is he now in break it seems like forever
well if the manga ends without being finished complete it would be a waste for the History of Shounen Manga
I hope togashi did something in the last 2 years... I am greatefull that he redraw all the chapters which came out unfinished in Shonen Jump but now the latest Manga Volume is out and so there is nothing to redraw anymore. And i'm pretty sure he finished every Dragon Quest Game ever created at least twice. Soooooo... ?
