Hunter X Hunter chapter 361 was released months ago and since then, fans have been eagerly waiting for the next chapter to arrive. Fans currently don’t know exactly when it will arrive. In fact, they don’t even know whether there will be Hunter X Hunter chapter 361 or not. However, now it seems that the fate of the critically acclaimed series will be revealed soon as the writer will now have to start working on it before February 2017.

Hunter X Hunter’s writer, Yoshihiro Togashi suffered from a serious health injury. What he was suffering from was lower back pain, which is a big thing for someone who spends most of him sitting and writing manga. This was the very reason why he stopped working on Hunter X Hunter manga after chapter 360. It has been several months since this happened, and the writer is still not showing any signs of improvement.

Yoshihiro Togashi Given A Deadline 

Now, because of the fact that many fans have been eagerly waiting for the next chapter to arrive for several months now, the publisher of the series, Shueisha has given the writer a deadline to finish his work before February 2017. Shueisha is kind of doing the right thing here because if the manga gets delayed further, the publisher won’t just lose profit, but it will also lose all the fans who have been patiently waiting for the next chapter to arrive.

If Togashi manages to start working on the manga and finishes it before February 2017, then fans will finally see another chapter of Hunter X Hunter after only two months. However, if Togashi fails to complete it, he will have to surrender all his rights to the publishers so they can hire someone else.

It is rumored that Togashi will be replaced with someone else. Speculations are that his wife, Naoko Takeuchi will take his place and will continue from right where he left off. Takeuchi is the very person behind Sailor Moon, so fans won’t get disappointed by her work. On the other hand, some rumors claim that the writer behind Tokyo Ghoul, Sui Ishida will take Togashi’s place.

Currently, some fans are against the decision of replacing Togashi. According to them, the series won’t be same without him. However, some fans are saying that Togashi should be replaced as they can’t wait any longer. The publisher also won’t hire a newbie, so there is no need to get worried.
