    Is the topic being brought up on Japanese forums? Any updates from Shounen Jump or possibly Togashi's manager? Or the guy responsible for Dragon Quest's PR? I'll take whatever I can get.

    I might be beating a dead horse here. But truth be told, I hold that horse quite dearly.
    Given that Togashi hasn't managed to squeeze out even one more chapter to make the appropriate page count to fill a volume (and that when YYH ended abruptly they filled the final volume with sketches) I have to assume some stuff went down behind the scenes and he's just done for now.

    Public excuse of back problems is legit, sure, but at this juncture it really feels like they were just covering for him. That its still perpetually listed as on hiatus is weird though.

    I gotta think the dozen breasted nipple woman in the last chapter might have been the final straw.

    Yessir. You can have all the eviscerations and mutilations you want. But bare breasts? Well, now you're in trouble.

    I mean, why would they publish it if they didn't want him to do it? Or did parents really complain afterwards?

    Or, heck, maybe he should've just drawn them so scribbly that no one could tell.

    It's Japan, they don't have problems with bare breasts. And it had no chapter the next week, too fast for any complaints to have made a difference.

    But between that and the rapist murder prince and some of the things in general Togashi was starting to show, it feels like he was getting prepared to once again do stuff that just really doesn't belong in a magazine for that age bracket, which could have easily led to an argument or twenty with an editor... followed by him being a spoiled child and refusing to work again... same as when YYH ended super suddenly.

    Well then why don't they just transfer it to a seinen magazine and make it monthly or something? Didn't something similar happen with Jojo?

    I imagine they don't want to let go of that potential cash cow. For all we know, Togashi could make his return at some point (yeah right) and thus earn the company more money.

    It would honestly feel pretty weird to see Togashi's latest inclusions in the manga being the reason for the hiatus. IIRC nobody said anything either when the Chimera Ants went crazy, beheading and devouring little kids and whatnot. Sure, it could be Togashi himself acting like a brat cause well fuck it right? But I want to give him the benefit of the doubt here.
    Even if believing in that guy is getting harder and harder...

    If Togashi truly wants to write material that is too grim for Jump, why doesn't he do what Araki did?

    Does he prefer Weekly Shonen Jump? Or does Jump want HxH to stay exclusive to their most popular magazine?

    It’s just speculation. We have no clue what happened so it is just discussions that go nowhere.

    If crazy speculation is okay, then I think Togashi stays in WSJ in order to stay a shonen, so that he can continue to deconstruct the shonen thingamabob while being a shonen at the same time.

    Speculating as to the reasons makes it a bit more bearable in my book. It "going nowhere" is secondary really. And for what it's worth some of us might just be right with their theories.

    Around this time Greg shows up and leaves with a cryptic comment and a look of "I know a lot more than you do" and an evil laughter.

    Araki's case is different from Togashi.

    Sort of.

    Btw the mangaka, Shibata, is a former assistant of Oda.

    Cannot wait for Zippo. Loved Yoakemono and his art style. He has what it takes to be a popular mangaka and Zippo just may be that hit.
