The manga series Hunter X Hunter has been on hiatus for months already because its artist is currently ill. As a result, there are speculations that he would soon be replaced by a new writer. Should that be the case, that might actually change everything about the series.
It has been four months already since the manga series last published a new chapter. This is because artist Yoshihiro Togashi is sick. Previous reports suggested that the artist’s illness will cause the series to stop. However, recent updates claim that the publisher is already looking for Togashi’s replacement.
According to claims, Shueisha, the publisher of the manga series will continue the story some time soon. In line with that, they are looking for new writers and illustrators to help them do the task. However, fans are worried about this move of the publisher. There are speculations that new writers and illustrators will as well mean new ambiance for the series.
It is a known fact that one’s personality is reflected in their works. This is an indication that new writers and illustrators may have a different approach in making new chapters for the Hunter X Hunter manga series. If that would be precise, then everyone is expecting the series to have a different feeling.
On a good note, there are claims that Togashi’s wife, Naoko Takeuchi, will be the one to take over the role. Rumor has it that she is already preparing new scripts for the manga series. Now, no one knows Togashi better than his wife. That fact will give the idea that if Takeuchi would really become the artist of the series, there will be no drastic changes to it.

Takeuchi is also a great manga artist just like her husband. One of his famous works is Sailor Moon. Clearly, she is a great artist that Shueisha should consider taking the job. However, none of these are confirmed yet. For now, let us wait for official statements regarding the matter from the publisher.
