After a tiresome period of continuous delays, rumours began to spread that Hunter X Hunter fans will never see chapter 361 however,anime publication these rumours couldn’t be further from the truth.
According to Itehpost runor has it Hunter X Hunter publisher Weekly Shonen Jump, has given strict instructions to Yoshihiro Togashi to complete the next chapter before the end of February 2017.
As reported by us earlier this year, there has been sufficient evidence to suggest that Togashi’s health has improved, since he was unable to continue his work after chapter 360.
Togashi has been seen meeting with other manga artists at recent Manga and Anime events, suggesting he is recovering well.
Furthermore Itechpost has stated that if Togashi was unable to finish the project by the deadline, new writers would then replace him before fans begin to lose interest.
In recent reports Naoko Takeuchi, Togashi’s wife, has been shortlisted as one of the possible replacement writers. This is due to her knowledge of her husbands work for chapter 361 thus far, putting her in a better position to complete the task compared to other writers.
So for all those patient fans out there Hunter X Hunter’s long hiatus will soon be over. Even if Togashi is still not ready for the project, someone else will be; as Weekly Shonen Jump do not want to disappoint their fans any longer.
