ECUMENICAL NEWS – Nov 4, 2016 – After going into an unwanted hiatus once more and disappointing its fans, “Hunter X Hunter” may be back in the circulation soon for its long-overdue chapter 361 as, reportedly, Yoshihiro Togashi’s wife has temporarily assumed the responsibility of penning the manga.
After returning from an almost two-year hiatus last April, “Hunter X Hunter” went into a hiatus once more in June, leaving the fans in a long cliffhanger on the events of the popular manga. This came after it was reported that Togashi’s back problems, the very reason why “Hunter X Hunter” experienced its longest hiatus, has recurred and gotten worse than ever.
While some thought that the manga would just end with the events in its chapter 360, the latest news is that the “Hunter X Hunter” is returning for it chapter 361 soon as Togashi’s wife, Naoko Takeuchi, has taken over the responsibility of scribing the events in “Hunter X Hunter.” While there are some people who may raise their eyebrows on Takeuchi’s abilities to tackle the responsibilities, Togashi’s better half is no stranger to manga writing as she is an established writer herself, having written popular manga titles, such as “Sailor Moon.”
However, Takeuchi may not work on “Hunter X Hunter” that long as, according to reports, Togashi was recently spotted at the 40th Anniversary Celebration of Osamu Akimoto’s Kochira Katsushika-Ku Kamearikouen-mae Hashutsujo (Kochikame). For many people, this is an indication that Togashi’s health is improving, and he may soon resume working on the future chapters of “Hunter X Hunter.”
Despite these reported developments, though, there is still no solid piece of information as to when exactly “Hunter X Hunter” chapter 361 will arrive. However, rumors claiming that the manga will return in circulation sometime in 2017 are rife. With Takeuchi temporarily taking over the responsibilities from Togashi, this is not a far cry at all.
