Hunter x Hunter Latest News & Update: 'Hunter x Hunter' Creator Yoshihiro Togashi Faking Health Issues?
After the illustrator and writer of the anime hit "Hunter x Hunter" was spotted during the recently held private party in Tokyo, where he appeared in a perfect shape, speculations are building up that he might just be faking his health issues.
Early this year, Togashi went on for a self-imposed hiatus noting his worsening back pain as a main reason leaving the "Hunter x Hunter Chapter 361" stalled. But could he be just making some excuses for his extended hiatus, considering his fans have gone impatient to wait for the next chapter of the manga.
Togashi was spotted by the press during the 40th anniversary celebration and conclusion of Osamu Akimoto's "Kochira Katsushika-ku Kamearikouen-mae Hashutsujo", the Anime News Network reported.
In the event, the brain behind the epic manga-turned-anime was spotted along with other big names in the anime scene, including Hisashi Eguchi (Stop! Hibari-kun), Kyosuke Usuta (Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoi yo!! Masaru-san), Yudetamago (Kinnikuman), Masanori Morita (Rookies), Shinji Hiramatsu (Black Angels), and Kontarō (Kaze ni Kiite Kure).
But the picture that Eguchi posted in social media did not sit well with other fans of the "Hunter x Hunter", especially since he claimed to have been suffering from excruciating back pain, but only to be seen as health as ever.
Togashi has been known within the anime scene as someone who usually goes on a long hiatus after finishing a few chapters of work, leaving his fans in a major cliffhanger.
"This guy is totally Lazy as fck he has 12 years to make up with HxH1999 and after HxH2011 Ant arc then decided to take a breaks for more than 3 years now and this is what you gonna say to your fans your complaining your back pain you have lots of break why u didn't continue this on your 12 years time its simple you are lazy as fck your not even level Of Oda from onepiece he will finish that anime till he has no sweat and breath from him unlike u bastard," one angry commenter posted in a report previously published by the GameNGuide.
