Hunter x Hunter’s writer Surprisingly Joins Twitter, Teases New Manga chapters

Yoshihiro Togashi, the creator of the popular shonen manga Hunter x Hunter, has joined Twitter and teased new Hunter x Hunter chapters in his debut post. The tweet, which has over 670,000 likes, appears to be a sketch with the tagline “Four more episodes for the time being,” which is poorly translated. Fans were quick to mark their calendars after seeing the message. Following much doubt over the account’s authenticity, Yusuke Murata, the creator of One-Punch Man, revealed that it is definitely Togashi’s account.

For Hunter x Hunter fans who are eager for fresh episodes of the manga, the math has begun to add up. Togashi’s long absence is explained in part by his long-standing health problems, which include back pain so severe that he remained bedridden, as documented in a series of Hunter x Hunter author’s notes.

Hunter x Hunter was first published in 1998 and shows a world where licensed Hunters are tasked with hunting down monsters and criminals, going on treasure hunts, and scouting new territories and species. The manga has been converted into two TV shows, the most recent of which ended in 2014. Hunter x Hunter fans, your patience has paid off.

Yoshihiro Togashi Career, What is his profession?

kami Nante Kowakunai!! (!!, lit. I’m Not Afraid of the Wolf!!) is one of Togashi’s earliest published works for Shueisha. Some of the stories were published in Weekly Shnen Jump before the tankbon was released in 1989. Togashi wrote Ten de Shwaru Cupid (, lit. An Ill-tempered Cupid in Heaven) between 1989 and 1990, a four-volume romance manga about the connection between a regular, human boy and a beautiful, devil girl.

With his next series, YuYu Hakusho (, lit. Poltergeist Report), Togashi created a reputation for himself in 1990. The plot revolves around Yusuke Urameshi, who is killed and then resurrected as an “Underworld Detective,” based on his occult and horror film interests. The manga, which ran for 175 chapters across 19 tankbon from 1990 to 1994, sold more than 50 million copies worldwide, gained Togashi a Shogakukan Manga Award in 1994 and was adapted into a popular anime series. He created Level E (E), a science fiction comedy manga, in 1995. It was first published in Weekly Shnen Jump in 1995 and continued until 1997, consisting of three volumes. In 2011, Level E was made into an anime television series.

Hunter Hunter (), an action-adventure manga, was Togashi’s next big series, which began serialization in 1998. Gon Freecss, a young kid in quest of his father, a legendary, elite member of the society known as a “Hunter,” is at the center of the plot. This manga was also a commercial success, with the first 20 volumes selling approximately 55 million copies in Japan by August 2011.  In a study conducted by the marketing research firm Oricon in 2008, Togashi tied with One Piece author Eiichiro Oda as the sixth favorite manga artist.
