Yoshihiro Togashi is suffering from serious lower back pains and will have to stop working on his famous Hunter x Hunter manga for the time being. The period planned for this hiatus is two weeks while his treatment lasts, but it is still just preliminary.
According to the announcement, the mangaka is hoping to return the project on the pages of the Weekly Shounen Jump (Shueisha publishing) for the magazine’s 41st issue, coming out on 8th September.
The story so far: The manga has been on another, one-week hiatus just this past July. This came after a long break of two years between March 2012 and June 2014.
Due to the often hiatuses of the title, many fans are complaining and wondering why is it happening and how come the manga has been running on an on-and-off basis for a long time now. Many are even complaining of the art quality while others, be it out of consideration for Togashi-sensei’s health or the quality of the manga itself, suggest he should hire an assistant or get an illustrator.
