Hunter X Hunter mangaka Yoshihiro Togashi wants to finish his manga Hunter X Hunter 

Hunter X Hunter mangaka Yoshihiro Togashi is known for taking a lot of breaks resulting in putting his own manga on hiatus, but today we received news that Yoshihiro Togashi wants to complete Hunter X Hunter he specifically said

“he plans to finish or die in the process”.  In a recent Weekly Jump interview, translated by Redditor VeraciousCake, Togashi discussed finishing Hunter x Hunter.

 “I need to finish writing Hunter x Hunter,” Togashi said (via VeraciousCake). “It has come to a point where either the story concludes first, or I die before that happens (lol). But I do intend to finish it.”

Yoshihiro Togashi stated that the story arcs and plot finished once when Gon met Ging, and some readers probably thought that this was supposed to be how it all came together. He agreed that he wrote it that way but actually did not plan to bring it to a close at that point. He hopes that readers can still that the story still has room to grow.

Since he’s also a manga reader, he knows the feeling of thinking a manga should have already ended as well as being unhappy when it dragged on. According to Yoshihiro Togashi, he never wants to forget that feeling as a manga reader.

“Hunter x Hunter as it is now has a lot in it that makes me want to keep on reading, even from my own perspective as a reader,” he said (via VeraciousCake). “And from my perspective as a writer, there are still many things in it left that I want to write, that I would enjoy writing. And so if anyone would be willing to enjoy this ride with me, that is all I can hope for.”
