Hunter x Hunter will hit his worst record next week

There are readers who can enjoy their favorite manga every week thanks to a constant publication of the mangaka and the magazine. Instead, some deal with manga that occasionally take a weekly break. And then there are the fans of Hunter X Hunter who are forced to see Togashi's releases only occasionally.

The reality is that the manga was written by Yoshihiro Togashi, the historical author of Weekly Shonen jump and that has produced hits like Ghosts Yu and Level E is not the hardest to follow. For Hunter x Hunter fans who don't see a chapter of Shueisha magazine with 79 issues, this will certainly not be a consolation.

As we expected a few months ago, Hunter x Hunter is close to the worst record ever. His longest pause right now is from 39 in 2014 to 19 in 2016, or 80 weeks without publication. In the current series, however, the manga has been paused since number 1 in 2019, with a total of 79 weeks of non-release. Given that Hunter x Hunter was not expected to return in the next issue, The manga will hit its previous record next week.

However, this cannot stop here, since Yoshihiro Togashi on the horizon does not seem to be expecting a return any time soon. With Weekly Shonen Jump number 37 in the second half of August we might have to accept that Hunter x Hunter has never taken a break this long. Will Togashi be able to return for a dozen chapters in this 2020 finale?
