Yoshihiro Togashi’s Hunter x Hunter is scheduled to return to Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump on October 23, 2022, following a nearly four-year break. The manga will be simulpublished on Viz Media’s Shonen Jump that same day in English.
Therefore, in advance of the manga’s impending chapter release, Viz Media has made all 390 of Hunter x Hunter’s chapters accessible to read in English on Shonen Jumo.
The 37th volume of the manga, which will be the first in four years, will have a new cover, which was also made available by Shueisha.

Although Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump will publish the manga on October 24 in Japan, the simulpub will publish the chapters a day earlier in most other countries due to time zone differences.

Due to Mangaka’s ongoing health concerns, the manga has previously been put on hold several times before taking a long break in November 2018. Following an improvement in his health, Togashi resumed writing the manga and later created a Twitter account where he began sharing updates on it on a daily basis.

Togashi even mentioned in a May 2022 Weekly Shonen Jump magazine remark that he had completed the rough drafts for 10 chapters, out of which he had completed creating the manuscripts for seven chapters.
Given the backlog of work Togashi has accumulated, we may assume that the manga won’t take any breaks or hiatuses in the near future.

The manga’s 37th volume’s cover has also been announced by Shueisha. Volume 37 will include the 10 chapters of the manga (chapters 381-390) that have not yet been gathered into a manga volume. The manga’s 36th volume, which Shueisha published in October 2018, was made available in North America by Viz Media in August 2019.
The Weekly Shonen Jump magazine published the first installment of Yoshihiro Togashi’s Hunter x Hunter on March 16, 1998. Since then, two manga adaptations of the original work have been produced: one by Madhouse from October 2011 to September 2014 and one by Nippon Animation from October 1999 to March 2002.

Even though the second season featured 148 episodes, only up to the 32nd volume of the manga could be adapted. Additionally, the studio created two anime films and a number of original video anime titles over time. With the anticipated reappearance of the manga, fans anticipate Madhouse’s continuation of the anime, similar to what Studio Pierrot accomplished with Bleach.
