Hunter x Hunter is back in action after an almost four-year hiatus, and the manga is celebrating with a promo visual emphasizing the release of Volume 37 of the manga!

Yoshihiro Togashi has been known to take extended breaks between new chapters of the long-running action series, but the most recent break is the longest in the series’ history. It’s been over four years since the last new chapter appeared in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, but the wait is finally over as the Succession Contest arc resumes.

Hunter x Hunter’s new special teaser PV

Not only is Hunter x Hunter returning to the pages of Shonen Jump with new chapters, but it also means that the rest of the series production may resume. With new chapters being released weekly for the next couple of months, physical volumes of the manga can also continue production. Volume 37 of the series is out as of November 4th in Japan, and previewing this newest release is a special teaser for the volume, which you can see below as provided by Shueisha:

Hunter x Hunter Volume 37 of the series comprises Chapters 381 to 390, the final new chapter released before the nearly four-year hiatus. With Chapter 391 now available to fans, and likely nine more new chapters to come before Togashi takes a vacation again, fans will be able to check out this volume and stay up with the series as if it never left. And, like with previous installments in the series, these chapters immerse readers in the Succession Contest storyline.

Morena Prudo, the dangerous Heil-Ly Family’s boss, is featured on the cover of Volume 37. She’s made her move by commanding her subordinates to do her dirty work, and it’s evident that she’ll be a very menacing presence for the rest of the fight. Now that the manga has resurfaced for the next phase of this arc, hopefully, we’ll get to see what her role will be in all of this.

Hunter x Hunter returns after its longest hiatus in history

Hunter x Hunter went on its first 84-week vacation in 2006. The manga was on hiatus for over a year in 2009. Several gaps occurred during the series’ run, including one from June 2014 to April 2016. Between 2016 and 2018, he took many short pauses, each lasting a few months, before Hunter x Hunter went on hiatus for the longest time, from 2018 to 2022. In August, the manga creator informed fans that he had extended his crew to assist with the completion of the chapters. A month later, he said that the next Hunter x Hunter book was complete except for a double-page spread.

Togashi’s career took off in 1990 when he released the supernatural martial arts manga YuYu Hakusho. Eight years later, he wrote Hunter x Hunter, a narrative about a young kid named Gon Freecss who attends the Hunter Examination in the hopes of finding his father, who abandoned him when he was a child. Hunter x Hunter received praise for its plot and characterization, and as of July 2022, it had sold over 84 million copies.

Nippon Animation produced the first Hunter x Hunter anime adaption in 1999, with 62 episodes. Madhouse produced a relaunch of the series in 2011, with Hiroshi Kojima directing. The revival received praise for its outstanding animation quality and tempo.
