After appearing on social media earlier this year to tease the return of the hit manga series Hunter x Hunter, creator Yoshihiro Togashi has recently been sharing his struggles with an ongoing health issue.

Togashi originally appeared on Twitter in May 2022, surprising fans by announcing that the critically acclaimed manga would be returning and sharing page-by-page updates in the form of photographs of pages. However, recently, Togashi has been sharing photographs of empty pages, and in a recent series of tweets, has revealed he’s been going through health issues regarding his hand.
“My symptoms are not improving, and my treatment and recovery have been taking up a large amount of my time,” said Togashi on Friday (translation via Anime News Network). “I’ve done one frame. I can’t put strength into my right hand, and I’m in pain.”

While it’s unclear exactly what Togashi is suffering from, it does seem like the artist has been working through his issues. On Sunday, the artist tweeted that a new, clean copy of dialogue was being worked on for the issues.
The news comes as fans continue to wait for any and all news regarding more Hunter x Hunter, which went on hiatus way back in November 2018 following the release of its most recent chapter, Chapter 390. Although no new issues have released, it does seem like Togashi is preparing for a large release, as he has been hinting at releasing a full volume (typically 10-12 chapters) of Hunter x Hunter, although it’s unknown when those will be fully ready.
