It has been a long time since the chapter 360 of Hunter X Hunter manga was released, and until now, no official statement has been out on when the next chapter will be released. Fans are impatiently waiting for it since the creator and publishers of the manga series still haven't made any statement officially.
Since no official statement for the release date was announced, some sources suggest that the creator has been given a deadline to release the next chapter by the end of February. Yoshiro Togashi, the creator of the manga series, had not been active for work due to his failing health.
Doctors of Yoshihiro Togashi suggested for a complete bed rest for him to recover completely from his lower back pain injury. He got the injury because of being old and sitting for several of hours to write for HxH manga series.
The health of its writer apparently caused the delay of the manga series chapter 361. With that said, the publisher, Weekly Shonen Jump, made a quick decision to take a strict action before fans would lose interest in the series.
Basing on the new reports, Weekly Shonen Jump gave Togashi an ultimatum to get back to work and finish it as soon as possible. Togashi needs to complete the Hunter X Hunter Chapter 361 or else he will suffer consequences, and its publisher will hire new writers to replace him.
However, the reports also stated that Togashi's wife, Naoko Takeuchi, is anticipated to take over the series. His wife is the person behind the acclaimed series, Sailor Moon, so fans won't get disappointed with her writing the upcoming chapters of the manga series. It won't be the same without Togashi, but at least fans will have the chance to taste the works of Takeuchi on the upcoming series soon.
The Hunter X Hunter chapter 361 is anticipated to arrive this month. But this will only happen only if Togashi will complete his work. But one thing is for sure, fans will surely see the next chapter soon.
