This is how severe the back pain of the author of HUNTER x HUNTER is

The leaks of the next edition of the magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump reported that the manga written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi, HUNTER x HUNTERwill have a special exhibition starting on October 28 in Japan. However, the leak also includes a message from the author, where he reveals the extent of his back pain, which even prevented him from completely wiping his butt after going to the bathroom.

His full statement wrote:

  • We are pleased to announce the upcoming opening of Yoshihiro Togashi’s “PUZZLE” exhibition. I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to everyone who has read the volumes and given me their warm love and support. It’s hard, right?
  • I’m sure you must be thinking, “No, continue the story at once.” I haven’t been able to sit in a chair to draw for about two years, but I have managed to resume writing by abandoning the traditional way of doing things. Everyone, please watch your back. Until two weeks ago, before I wrote this, I was unable to wipe my butt and had to take a shower every time I pooped.
  • Each movement takes me three to five times longer than a normal person. The back is important. Therefore, I strongly recommend that when you drop something at the next exhibition, you should pick it up in a proper posture. Yoshihiro Togashi spoke to them.
  • [Actualmente solo puedo dibujar tomando esta postura]explains the author accompanied by a small drawing.

HUNTER x HUNTER began to be published in March 1998 in the magazine Weekly Shōnen Jumpless than a year after the start of the publication of one piece. Yoshihiro Togashi has taken numerous long breaks from publishing HUNTER x HUNTER since 2006, some of which were due to illness and chronic back pain, while the reasons for others were never revealed. It should be remembered that the video game for smartphones HUNTER x HUNTER: Arena Battle is available in the catalog QooApp in this link.


HUNTER x HUNTER is set in a world where hunters exist to perform all kinds of dangerous tasks, such as capturing criminals and bravely searching for lost treasures in uncharted territories. Twelve-year-old Gon Freecss is determined to become the best hunter he can be in hopes of finding his father, who was a hunter and abandoned his family long ago. However, Gon soon realizes that the path to achieving his goals is far more challenging than he ever imagined.

On the way to becoming an official hunter, Gon befriends the spirited doctor-in-training Leorio, the vengeful Kurapika, and the rebellious ex-assassin Killua. To achieve their own goals and wishes, the four of them together take the Hunter Exam, known for its low success rate and high chance of death. Along their journey, Gon and his friends embark on an adventure that puts them through many hardships and struggles. They’ll meet a host of monsters, creatures, and characters, all while learning what it really means to be a hunter.
