Hunter X Hunter has gone on a hiatus that is longer that most fans may have expected. Latest reports claim that the hit anime series will be back for its chapter 361 one of these days. Alas, the wait could finally be over.

Hunter X Hunter Chapter 360 was released back in June. Fans have been patiently waiting for a new chapter. Fans want to know what happens next in the life of Gon and other beloved characters.

Latest Hunter X Hunter Chapter 361 news claim that Naoko Takeuchi will be taking over. Takeuchi is Togashi?s wife. She has already worked with her husband for Hunter X Hunter projects. Many believed that she would be a good fit to replace the original Hunter X Hunter creator. ?
But it seems Togashi can handle the continuation of Hunter X Hunter on his own now. He was most recently seen socializing with other manga creators and illustrators. He looks better now.
The latest appearance of Togashi happened at the 40th anniversary of Kochikame Osamu Akimoto’s creation. Masanori Morita, Hisashi Eguchi Yudetamago were also there. The beloved manga creators and illustrators even posted for a photo.
