Hunter x Hunter fans worried about cancellation due to Shonen Jump change

Hunter x Hunter fans have been expressing concern about the future of the popular manga series after Weekly Shonen Jump, the Japanese manga magazine where it is published, implemented a new classification system. The change divides manga series into two categories: “serialized works” and “archived serializations.” Hunter x Hunter is currently classified as an “archived serialization,” which includes manga series that have either ended, been cancelled, or transferred to another magazine. This has led some fans to worry that the series may be cancelled in the near future.

Hunter x Hunter, written by Yoshihiro Togashi, has a long history of hiatuses, with the most recent one taking place in December 2022, only two months after the series returned from a previous hiatus. According to a leak, the manga would no longer continue weekly serialization from chapter 401 onwards. The announcement, however, stated that Togashi would continue to write the following chapters, and the editorial department would continue to support him until the completion of the manga. The future of the manga’s serialization remains uncertain.

Togashi has taken multiple breaks from the series due to his chronic health problems. He took a two-year break from 2014 to 2016 and returned for two months before going on another year-long hiatus. In 2018, he stopped working on the series due to his health issues, and the hiatus lasted until July 2022. While Togashi announced that Volume 37 of the manga, which contains chapters 381-390, will be released in Japan on November 4, 2023, he also revealed that his symptoms have not improved, and his treatment and recovery have been taking up a significant amount of his time.

Hunter x Hunter has been serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump since March 1998 and has garnered a massive following over the years. The series follows the adventures of a young boy named Gon Freecss, who discovers his true identity and strives to become a Hunter like his father. As of July 2022, the manga series had over 84 million copies in circulation. The franchise has also been adapted into two anime series, two animated theatrical films, video games, and musicals.

While hiatuses are not uncommon for mangakas (manga creators), some fans worry that the series may not return from its most recent hiatus due to the new classification system. Other mangakas, such as Yuki Tabata, the creator of Black Clover, have also taken publication breaks due to health issues or to plan the story’s final arc. Despite concerns, Hunter x Hunter remains available for fans to read on the Shonen Jump app and to watch on Netflix and Crunchyroll.
