How isn't Togashi rich? over 40 million copies of Yu Yu sold....Over 60 million copies of HxH sold.... Plus he's married to a woman who made Sailor Moon....Money isn't an issue...or else he wouldn't be taking Hiatuses..
Togashi is easily a multi-millionaire as he is one the best selling, most critically acclaimed mangaka of all time.
He takes hiatuses because HE CAN. Would any of you honestly want to work 365 days a year like most mangaka? I know I wouldnt.
Togashi has never been a guy who works all year round like others, he just can't handle it and you know what, that is fine.
He is human and god forbid we have another Yu Yu Hakusho situation where Togashi works himself to near death.
Anyways, he is well off financially, he could end Hunter x Hunter and live the rest of his life never working again.
But he doesn't because he loves manga, it is his life work, he disobeyed his fathers wish to become a doctor in order to become a mangaka, it is his life dream.
Togashi is an eccentric genius, I dont mind his breaks, because I understand that he is not superhuman.
Yeah, Togashi is definitely rich, UNLESS he spent all of his money creating a secret underground Dragon Quest shrine, lol.
but really Yu Yu Hakusho is a classic (one of my favorite anime), and Its probably still making money from dvds or something. Hunter X Hunter is immensely popular and he's married to the author of Sailor Moon (which was huge) probably bigger than Yu Yu Hakusho, Im not sure.
I believe it was either Sailor Moon or Dragonball that enticed me to Anime. XD
i don't think being rich is the reason why togashi isn't making anymore chapters. i mean just look at oda, he's probably richer. one piece has probably sold more copies than hxh and yuyu hakusho combine. and that's not including OP bandai, megahouse, etc, products. i like hxh, i think it has the potential to be greater than one piece today. but man togashi is damn lazy. maybe he really has a serious illness. i hope he gets well soon.

How I'm going to react once HxH comes back from Hiatus
Sorry for being off topic, but when you're speaking of YYH, I wonder... Would Madhouse be in a mood of remaking YYH anime since they've been on a roll with their HxH reboot?
Honestly, I wouldn't like to see the YYH anime rebooted. It'd draw in new fans, but I don't see anything inherently wrong with the anime itself that it would need a reboot.
