Is the Hunter x Hunter manga finished or still ongoing? This is perhaps the most frequently asked question among Hunter x Hunter fans.

RELATED: The Best Fantasy Anime You Should Watch

Hunter x Hunter was first serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in March 1998 and has since produced 37 tankobon manga volumes as of November 2022.

The series has spawned two TV anime adaptations, three separate OVAs, two theatrical films, and numerous video games, musicals, audio albums, and other media.

Hunter x Hunter follows a young boy named Gon Freecss, who wants to become a licensed hunter like his father, Ging.

Hunters are elite members of civilization with the right to track down treasures, beasts, and even people. They may also have access to areas that ordinary people do not.

The villagers recognize Gon as a capable young man despite his young age, having captured the Monster of the Swamp on Whale Island.

While his Aunt Mito is initially opposed to Gon's ambitions, she eventually caves after seeing Gon in a new light.

Gon, along with his newfound comrades, passes the Hunter Examination.

He befriends Kurapika, the last member of the Kurta Clan, Leorio, the aspiring physician, and Killua Zoldyck, a member of the notorious family of assassins.

Unfortunately for Killua, he failed the Hunter Exam due to an incident involving his brother Illumi's influence.

Leorio and Kurapika leave for personal reasons after convincing Killua to rejoin their group. Killua and Gon enter Heaven's Arena for training and financial gain.

Since then, Gon and Killua have been practicing Nen, clashing with the Phantom Troupe, taking part in the Greed Island, and assisting Kite with his Chimera Ant research.

Is the Hunter x Hunter Manga Finished or Still Ongoing?

Despite being released in 1998, the Hunter x Hunter manga is still ongoing.

Due to Yoshihiro Togashi's health issues, the manga has been on hiatus for four years. Going back in time, Chapter 390 was published in 2018.

Togashi's crippling back pain has since prevented him from releasing new chapters or even finishing the series.

The good news is that Togashi has finally teased four new Hunter x Hunter manga chapter releases.

The manga teaser has been met with skepticism following the creation of a mysterious Twitter account belonging to Togashi.

Fortunately, Yusuke Murata, the illustrator of One Punch Man, has confirmed that Togashi's Twitter account is legitimate.

Togashi's Twitter post has received 1.4 million likes and nearly 400 thousand retweets.

Since his account's creation on May 24, 2022, Togashi's official Twitter account has gained 2.1 million followers.

If this doesn't say something about the series' long-standing popularity, we don't know what does.

Truly, Hunter x Hunter's internet-breaking announcement has left fans in tears.

When Will the Hunter x Hunter Manga End?

As of writing, it is difficult to predict when Hunter x Hunter will conclude, but if news of the series' ending comes out, this article will be updated.

Instead of worrying about it, fans should rejoice at the manga's return after a nearly four-year-long hiatus, as the manga finally received new chapters on October 24.

In addition, on November 4, the 37th compiled book volume of the manga was released.

Togashi has been teasing fans with his drafts on his official Twitter account since the announcement of Hunter x Hunter's return, despite not saying when the new chapters will be released.
