The update comes in line with a new Hunter x Hunter exhibit in Japan in October. In addition to announcing the upcoming exhibit, a statement from Yoshihiro Togashi was shared and interestingly, he finally spoke up about his health issues.

"I have been unable to sit in a chair to draw for about two years, but I have managed to resume writing by giving up the traditional way of doing things. Everyone, please take care of your hips," the mangaka wrote. He then shared some surprising details of his ordeal.

"Until two weeks ago, before I wrote this, I was unable to wipe my a-- and had to take a shower every time I took a sh-t. Every movement takes 3 to 5 times longer than a learned person. The back is important," Togashi wrote.

He concluded his message with advice for fans who will be attending the exhibit.

"Therefore, I strongly recommend when you drop something at the exhibition, you should pick it up in a sitting position," Togashi wrote.

It's certainly sound advice and one that fans of all ages should take note of. We're hoping that Yoshihiro Togashi is staying healthy and that his fans are taking care of their health as well.
