Following the reports that "Hunterx Hunter" Chapter 361 might not see the light of day anytime soon, rumors have surfaced online claiming otherwise.
According to reports, "Hunter x Hunter" Chapter 361 will get its much awaited release in February 2017. This is due to writer Yoshihiro Togashi's improving health.
It can be recalled that the series was put on hold again mostly for the same reason; Yoshihiro Toagashi's health condition. It has been reported that the famed writer has been suffering from recurring back pain and allegedly getting worse over the years.
"Hunter x Hunter" manga series is not new to being on hiatus. In fact, the said manga was put on hold around 2014 and just recently returned in April this year. The manga's 360th chapter titled "Parasite" was even rumored to be the end of the series.
In addition, there were also speculations that the publishers of "Hunter x Hunter" series hired new writers to continue the production with Togashi as consultant. However, the 56-year-old manga artist was not happy with the output thus putting everything back on hold. The producers also claim that they do not want "to damage the entertainment value of the franchise.
With fans waiting too long, it may come as a threat of losing interest in the series especially since they don't even know whether the series will push through or not.
There have been no final confirmation as to the current status of "Hunter x Hunter" series or if Togashi's health did improve. However, numerous reports online claim that the manga artist's health condition gets better and that he is now capable of producing and releasing not just Chapter 361 but its succeeding parts as well, hopefully by February 2017.
On the other hand, fans are speculating that "Hunter x Hunter" Chapter 361 will follow on the story of Kurapika and his investigation about the real deal inside the Black Whale. He will also have an encounter with the Nen beast parasites, who he suspects to be responsible for the increased number of killings.
For now, fans will have to wait for the official announcement of "Hunter x Hunter" Chapter 361 before getting their hopes too high.
