Yu Yu Hakusho Reprint To Compensate For Hunter X Hunter's Hiatus?

I was 10 years old when I first watched Hunter x Hunter (1999 version) in television. I was very picky when it comes to anime. Back then, I preferred to watch anime series of serious, deep, violent and mature contents rather than the kiddie stuff. *Coughs* Mojacko, Akazukin Cha-cha*Coughs*. That was me when I was a kid. Don't get me wrong because I love Akazukin Cha-cha right now. As for Mojacko, I'll try watching it soon.

Another fact about me is that, I don't discover a fantastic series on my own. They are being introduced to me.

I first heard about Hunter x Hunter from my uncle. One day, I found him watching TV and I fell in love immediately with the anime series he was watching. Yes, it was the 1999 version and the first episode I've watched was from the Phantom Troupe Arc (York Shin City Arc). I think it was the episode when Genei Ryodan infiltrated the auction and killed some of Neon's bodyguards. Uncle told me that I missed more than 50 episodes and I felt bad.

He was able to finish the Greed Island Arc. As for me, the last scene I watched was from the episode when Pakunoda died. For many years, I believed that Neon's prophecy came true and that 6 nembers of the Spiders had died including Chrollo Lucilfer.

Because I missed witnessing some parts of a great anime series that I should watch before I die, I promised myself that one day, I will search for those episodes or maybe watch the whole thing again. YouTube was not yet born  and most people in our country were not aware about the thing called internet during those times. My unwavering faith in time and technology made us meet again. I'm talking about me and Hunter x Hunter.

It was 2008 when I turned eighteen and had a job. I was a single guy back then and life was boring. I wanted to read a lot of books and play a lot of games. Then I realized that I can go back to watching anime. The first thing I remembered, was my good old friend Hunter x Hunter. So I asked as many Otaku as I could and I found out that the series was on a very long hiatus. Damn.

It was October 2011 when the first episode of the new Hunter x Hunter anime series (2011 version) was aired. I was sure that my Uncle would be very happy to see its comeback. Too bad he died at the start of the month and was not able to watch any episode of the new version. He was 39 years old.


I better stop the drama before tears flow and before you get bored. Now back to the main topic of this article which is the Yu Yu Hakusho reprinting stuff.

Fans of Yoshihiro Togashi may be relieved by the news that Viz Media has announced that they will reprint his popular manga series "Yu Yu Hakusho". This was already done on different digital platforms including their own site/app, Kindle, Google Play, Kindle and iBookstore.

Yu Yu Hakusho is one of the best shonen manga of all time.

The Hunter x Hunter anime series ended with 148 episodes and the manga is on hiatus again due to serious back pain issues of Togashi. And as we all know, the manga hiatus has become indefinite. With this, producers are supposing that followers are hungry for a Yoshihiro Togashi 'feel' and that the Yu Yu Hakusho reprint could keep the fans calm.

Six months ago, a blogger asked a scary question. The question goes: "What if Togashi won't finish Hunter x Hunter?" During these times, the Dark Continent was announced a long time ago but was never released. Fear set into the hearts of many fans as the fact that you'll never know the ending of your favorite anime series is really devastating. Not only that it is your favorite, but Hunter x Hunter is indeed one of the best and most wanted anime/manga series of all time.

The fans were relieved that a few months after the blogger asked this question, the first chapter of the Dark Continent arc was released. But then again, the manga was brought to an indefinite status. The blogger's question is now like a ghost of the past, haunting each and every Hunter x Hunter lover.

Is the Yu Yu Hakusho manga reprint enough  to compensate for Hunter x Hunter's hiatus? Different HxH fan pages in Facebook are being flooded with an orgy of questions such as when will the anime resume, when will Togashi continue the manga and more. I am also a fan of the Yu Yu Hakusho series, but what I can only say is, HUNTER x HUNTER is HUNTER x HUNTER. No matter how many anime you stuff in mouth, I won't exchange my Hunter x Hunter series.

Hisoka, Hunter x Hunter

Reprinting of Yu Yu Hakusho? Yes its good. Another interesting material to read. But for the intention to please HxH fans? Thank you and we appreciate it. But I guess it won't be enough.

The best fix I suppose, would be to know when the manga is going to resume. But this hiatus getting indefinite means restlessness or an ever-lasting discontentment for the Hunter x Hunter fans.

I will wait for Hunter x Hunter. It may take a lifetime but I know it's worth it.

So let me ask again...

Is the Yu Yu Hakusho manga reprint enough  to compensate for Hunter x Hunter's hiatus?

What do you think?
