Best solution for me was to just move on from this manga altogether. I'm not saying I won't read it if it comes out, but I removed my thinking of it being in the top of my list. The manga started in 1998. That's 13 years (676 weeks minimum when counting March 1998 to March 2011) and only 310 chapters to show for it. It'd be one thing if it were larger chapters, but this was a weekly shounen manga.
The man is good at what he does, but is clearly busy. Since that's the case, I had to look at it realistically and just left it alone. The hiatus is now more expected than chapter releases, so no point in stressing over it.
HxH isn't going to continue for another year or so based on what's happening in Japan. With the entire nuclear disaster that's still going on, other manga with story lines involving nuclear matter has been put on hiatus / storyline forcibly changed.
I doubt it's going to be any different for HxH.
On a side note, I just realized that Berserk has more chapters published than HxH.
maybe togashi worked at his drawing style even i like it could be a little bit better
What I really love at most at hunter x hunter drawing are the emotion
btw i think there will be just 1 hunter who just be able to beat the king Gin Freecs maybe he finishs the king and then dissappears again ,there while gon is recovering so he couldnt see him
this would make for me sense
Anyways, the earthquake is not even remotely a good excuse for this manga to not continue. If it does not then it will be for whatever reason it did not go on before, not because of the earthquake.
i think best solution is to hope the mangaka run out of money so he has to go back to work?
^ unfortunately, since he got gazillions of cash from yuyu, and married a mangaka as rich as him, i don't think that can happen.
some artists care about the essence of Arts, some are just regular employees. togashi couldn't care less about his readers, most of the time, hiatuses were because of console RPGs getting retail.
Even if it comes back, will it be as good as before?
I doubt it. The chimera arc is a mistake itself. A power up that high leaves very little scope for interesting development in the future. Its sad cos this manga had the potential to compete with the big 3.
The chimera arc is a mistake mainly because it is been in hiatus for over this past few years... If the chimera arc is drawn weekly like the OP,Naruto, Bleach I doubt you can say it is a mistake... The hiatus makes us believe that this arc is a mistake ^^..
The first time i read an article about him going on hiatus was about his illnes or generally his health. I felt sorry for him, but as someone else here said: I had to erase HxH from my thoughts because i endured 2 hiatus(es?) before. Okay in other, more simple words, i thought everyday about HxH and was happy when it returns, but got even more desperate when he went on Hiatus after his normal work amount of 10 Chaps.
Now i only read my all-time favorites like Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Fairy Tail, Claymore(sometimes) and my new favorite Toriko, which i startet to read 2009/2010. It's kinda taking HxH place., Toriko is something like a HxHhunter too, is it just me or are the two mangas similar in a few ways?
Some crazy muscled bodies, "strange"^^ characters, a world with odd monsters and enemies. They certainly have something in common.
I read about him being ill too some years back, but with his history of breaks, it may be just an excuse from Shueisha. He's free to draw how much he ever wants and can easily live of his past works/wife. I would love to see it continued, an assistent did post that it would come back this fall, but deleted it afterwards. Hope is all I got left for the series.
Meh, I don't bite Toriko. I'm all up with strange characters, but what really got me into HxH was Nen and how complex and simple is in the same time. A system that beats any other manga power system.
Odd monsters and enemies it's something I'm actually seeing more and more often.

Hunter x Hunter is about the chase, and the trail Gin set for Gon. After showing Netero die to the King chimera, the only thing that remains is finding Gin, I know that would be interesting, but it would be better to show surpass other HxH with each arc rather than one.
