“Hunter X Hunter” Chapter 361 release date has not been confirmed as of yet. And the main reason is the ailing health of the creator Yoshihiro Togashi. The showrunner even tried to hire new writers. But the sources suggest that they could not match the quality of the original creator. Will Shonen Jump then cancel the manga series?

The possibility of “Hunter X Hunter” Chapter 361 cancellation is quite huge as there has been no statement from the showrunner. Incidentally, Togashi was seen enjoying an anime manga event with his friend. It thus indicated that he is in good health. Even then, the creator is yet to start work on the next chapters of the series.

New Writers May Not Replace Togashi

According to The Christian Post, Togashi has been the main cause of the frequent long hiatus of the Japanese manga series. Fans tried to understand his situation as Togashi has been suffering from severe back pain from past few years. However, now that he was seen enjoying a party, fans are expecting him to get back to work fast and complete “Hunter X Hunter” Chapter 361 and other pending chapters.

Incidentally, the showrunner also thought of trying new writers, but could not find someone who could match the skill of Togashi.

 Will Shonen Jump Cancel ‘Hunter X Hunter ‘ Chapter 361?

The last chapter under the “Dark Continent Expedition” arc released on July 4, reports Travelers Today. The episode ended with Kurapika trying to make a contact with his fellow Hunters. Most of the Nen beasts disappear however there is one still sticking to Sairid.

Lots of questions are yet to be answered for which the release of “Hunter X Hunter” Chapter 361 is highly necessary. But with no word from Togashi, will the showrunner cancel it altogether? Speculations also indicate that the showrunner might think of planning a completely new manga show instead of focussing on “Hunter X Hunter.”

    He has a bad back issue but why should that keep the anime/manga from going? All they need is the story from him and to hire someone else to do the artwork. The story is more important than the artwork anyway.

    He really should just cancel it and be done with it. There are plenty of other good shonens out there and the guy could just retire without all the pressure of hxh hanging over his head.

      Then there would be people like me setting bounties on his head and going after him tho 😀

    “Togashi was seen enjoying an anime manga event with his friend. It thus indicated that he is in good health.” – This comment was really stupid. I’m Pretty sure going to an anime manga event isn’t quite as bad for your back as sitting at a desk drawing for several hours every day.

    Did you ever stop to consider that maybe he wants a life outside of permanently being in a bed, and he therefore made an effort to go out?
