Hunter x Hunter manga began serializing again in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump on Oct 24, 2022, with chapter 391, four years after it went on a hiatus. Naturally fans were excited to read more chapters penned by author Yoshihiro Togashi, and among them was the director of Chainsaw Man anime, Ryu Nakayama.
According to a tweet made by the director on Oct 24, 2022, he can’t wait to read the upcoming chapters of Hunter x Hunter manga.
Initially, Nakayama felt that a week was too soon for new chapters to release once the manga starts serialization. However, as Hunter x Hunter started, he couldn’t wait to read the next one and a week now felt longer to him.
“A week is too soon since it came back on the air!!!! That’ what I was thinking, but once Hunter started, I couldn’t wait to read the next one, and it feels longer, so it’s offsetting nicely…,” Nakayama said in his tweet.
Hunter x Hunter’s 37th volume will release on Nov 4, 2022 in Japan. The author recently revealed that he also finished working on volume 38, i.e. chapters 391-400, of the manga. The chapters will be released weekly now after it resumed serialization.
Togashi had earlier revealed that he is also working on the drafts of chapters 401-410 of Hunter x Hunter.
