Got some news. It's a bit late. You might have read it already.

Hunter x Hunter Manga Goes on 2-Week Hiatus Due to Back Pain

This year's 39th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that artist Yoshihiro Togashi is putting his Hunter x Hunter manga on a two-week hiatus, due to serious lower back pain. The manga is not running in the 39th issue nor the 40th issue, as Togashi undergoes treatment. However, he aims to return in the 41st issue, which will ship on September 8.

The manga went on a brief hiatus in July, and Togashi resumed his manga in June after a hiatus of more than two years.

Shueisha shipped the 32nd compiled volume in Japan in December 2012, and Viz Media released the same volume in North America in April. The manga inspired two television anime series; the latest one has been running since 2011, but it will end with episode 148 on September 23. The manga also inspired two anime films and several original video anime titles

@takashichea: Hmm. This is another issue. Togashi does take long breaks for any number of reasons but it seems that whenever he genuinely wants to commit, his health suffers. Hope he gets better.

@Alpha_Watcher_3000:

That's better than me. I haven't watch or read the series yet. I'm still in the discussion for odd reasons.

@taichokage:

Sorry, I didn't see your reply to that hiatus question. Saw how often it was in that hiatus chart we posted for the HUNTER X HUNTER -- AV Mods' Roundtable. Not to be pessimistic, but I recall talking with Falbium and Marshal on authors who passed away before completing their work. The author of Familiar of Zero and MM. If his health is so bad and the working conditions of being a mangaka is too much, I think it's best for him and the folks who love the series to end the franchise.

Ok, so I have two questions:

1- does this arc end next episode ?

2- will there be an episode next week ?

148 will be the end. I have a guess it will end on chapter 339, which is the end of the Election arc, as 340 starts the next arc.

With togashi it is difficult to know what to believe; he will say he's sick, then rumors will start circulating about what he might be up to instead of drawing. By the time you take a two year hiatus and more, you cannot be that into your own manga. Then again i might be putting too much stoke in the internet and talk of togashi's preoccupation with games.

145 had such great use of facial emotions in a anime. Very clean use of facial emotions to carry the stories feel. Almost as powerful as when the king died but that to help set this up as the long journey that it was to get here.

146 had as much great use of facial animation as 145 if not more! Very glade they are not doing filler route now. If the story continues I want it to be in Yoshihiro Togashi hands not a fill in writers. Original vision tho slow is well worth the wait.

147 wraps up some of what happened to Kite. Part of the episode deals with the soul an the other half was good byes. But one episode to go!

So, what will happen to the series after 148 ?
