I hope the next chapter is Chrollo kicking everyone's arse because he absolutely can.

Credit to someone on mangahelpers for finding this.

Looks like Togashi and Takeuchi were at a cheese shop back in April (or around then, anyway).

I'm not even a fan of Takeuchi but her autograph is so cool. Togashi really hit the jackpot.

Vol 36 arrived last week so naturally in the meantime I've re-read the whole arc twice.

I had a feeling in my gut about that.... The picture in the tweet only showed half of the image where the dates were. It reminded me of that promo image of Kurapika that was used last year to promote a return or new volume.

Edit: It was this image with the top half showing his face cut off

Literally the second time people have done that with the pic from last year.

Early 2020 is still what I’m expecting.

Was browsing the chapters that MangaPlus has, and in 389, having recently finished JoJo Part 6, surely not a coincidence, right? Especially from Sixth Prince Tyson.

He just can't help himself, Mariip lol.

"This" vs. "What a", but still pretty damn close. Would be curious to see if the Japanese is the same.

Found it, and I'm not really sure. No, I guess? lol



And apparently the number 4 has associations with death in Japanese (the words sound the same)?
I mean Sticky Fingers is in HxH. It's obvious that this is just logic driven Jojo at this point.
Still hoping for that fanboy interview one of these days.

"Every time I read Jojo, I realize that I love it. But after so many years I realized that I'd love it even more if I applied logic to your stand based powers, so I went back and picked out my favorite Jojo stands and wrote them in a way that actually makes some god damn sense. So now I can keep my love for Jojo, but now the fan base can love and appreciate a King Crimson that actually logically makes sense."

Togashi's version of "That's bullshit, but I believe it" will go on for 3 chapters as he extensively details said bullshit with graphs and charts.

Doing a little more searching, it looks like it can indeed mean "What a Wonderful World", e.g., the Louis Armstrong song: https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/この素晴らしき世界

And that may be the bigger reference given:

I'll definitely be on the lookout for how he references that further.

So I enjoy watching people's reactions to the big episodes of HxH like 126 and 131 among others and just saw another streamer got to 131 and his reactions were pretty great.

Finished Parasyte recently. Can definitely see influence on Chimera Ant. Also, Youpi.




Picked up some Junji Ito as well. I knew Togashi was a fan of him, so these are great to see.

Genuine question for the thread:
Would you be OK if Toshagi decided to fully complete the rest of the series as novels?
Hypothetically, Toshagi announces he's doing this and gives a guarantee to complete the series as a wealth of prose novels with the light novel elements of character designs illustrated at the starting pages of the book and with the only other illustrations being on the covers and a handful of inserts in each chapter depicting a scene relevant to the chapter's events. All the illustrations and writing would be done by him of course and the distribution would be similar to the Viz model of releasing the Japanese and English volumes near-simultaneously with a 1-2 month gap. Also his estimate would be that the volumes would be biyearly. Would you keep up with and buy Hunter x Hunter still with such a drastic change to the format?

LOL I haven't watched Roger's Base in a while and I'm just now finding out about his HxH reactions. I watch a lot of HxH and general anime reactions as well. Particularly like seeing the reactions to Gon v Hisoka as well as Meruem & Komugi's final Gungi game.

I only wouldn’t because there would be no way they’d get released in my country so people would never see the end to it here, at least legally. I’d rather have him hire an artist to do the panels

I'd of course still support the series, but even as wordy as some parts of the current arc have gotten, I just don't see Togashi doing that. And as Mariip said, I'd much rather see him team up with an artist (though this is also unlikely).
