Is ‘Hunter X Hunter’ Returning? Voice Actor Tweets Indicate It Is Possible

by Anna Lindwasser

Hunter x Hunter ended without fully adapting the original manga storyline. This has been a source of stress for the series’ fans, but it is an inevitable result of the fact that the manga has been on hiatus since 2019. But recent posts from the voice actors on both Instagram and Twitter are hinting at possible new material.

Gon Freecss’ voice actor Megumi Han said on Instagram that she was happy to be “returning to her starting point” and recording with her “partner.” Though Han has played plenty of characters since then, including roles like Child Obito Uchiha from Naruto Shippudden, and Momiji Sohma from Fruits Basket (2019), Gon was her first role.

The partner she’s talking about seems to be Mariya Ise, who played Killua Zoldyck, Gon’s best friend in the seriesIse recently tweeted that she was excited to be working with her ‘partner’ on a new project. The tweet was accompanied by a pixelated image. Could this be concept art for another edition of Hunter x Hunter?

With no concrete information in place, it’s hard to say for sure if this amazing shonen series will actually be updated or if the two actresses are talking about something else entirely. What do you think? Is the series finally coming back, or is it too good to be true?
