Hunter X Hunter News!

Naoko Saw A Monkey?!

More on this exciting news later… Hunter X Hunter volume 26 continues to do well in Japan, and was the top selling manga for the month of October. We really like this writer’s spin on the series. He wrote: “Togashi started the serial in 1998, and now it’s an irregular serial”. Irregular, you say? We’ll be using that word a lot more from now on. We read on a posting on 2chan that he announced the climax would not begin this year, and that he didn’t know when it would begin. We don’t know if this is for the arc or the series, as of this writing. Anyway, a few highlights from his weekly endnotes to his fans…

☀ He wants to lose about 5% of his body fat after a recent physical. He took up biking, but he lives near a junior high school and he was going to take his bike there to have them inspect it and fix it. He felt a little uneasy about that.

☀ He thanked fans for their patience with him, and feels that since the 22nd volume of the manga, that his linestrokes have been strong and he is able to draw better than he could before. He finds it frustrating that sometimes he discards a lot of drawings that don’t turn out correctly, but he is sure that all his readers like this higher quality work of his.

☀ And the kicker?! In last week’s issue, he wrote:

My wife saw a monkey in the garden. He escaped to the junior high school in the neighborhood after that. The people in the junior high school have seen that monkey recently, even though we live in the same neighborhood and just noticed it now.

We kinda wish the monkey dropped off a letter for Naoko asking for Sailor Moon to come back to the world! Until then, any revelation from Mr. Togashi about Naoko is a really big deal for all us fans – even if it is only about her seeing a monkey in her garden!
