Yoshihiro Togashi, creator of Hunter x Hunter and YuYu Hakusho, has become the most followed mangaka on Twitter. Togashi-san created his Twitter account on the 24th of May to announce that he had returned to work on the Hunter x Hunter manga, since then he has accumulated over 2.4 million followers, surpassing Kohei Horikoshi, creator of Boku no Hero Academia, who has 2.1 million followers.
Since creating his account Togashi-san has provided several updates on his work, usually pictures of the manuscript for Hunter x Hunter. His last update was on the 28th of May when he posted a picture of a board with the number 10 on it, possibly meaning that there are 10 new chapters in the works. It’s currently unclear as to when the Hunter x Hunter manga will be returning, the last chapter was published in November 2018.
Hunters devote themselves to accomplishing hazardous tasks, all from traversing the world’s uncharted territories to locating rare items and monsters. Before becoming a Hunter, one must pass the Hunter Examination—a high-risk selection process in which most applicants end up handicapped or worse, deceased.
Ambitious participants who challenge the notorious exam carry their own reason. What drives 12-year-old Gon Freecss is finding Ging, his father and a Hunter himself. Believing that he will meet his father by becoming a Hunter, Gon takes the first step to walk the same path.
During the Hunter Examination, Gon befriends the medical student Leorio Paladiknight, the vindictive Kurapika, and ex-assassin Killua Zoldyck. While their motives vastly differ from each other, they band together for a common goal and begin to venture into a perilous world.
