Yoshihiro Togashi has finally resumed the daily updates on his Twitter account after years, where he posts a photo of Hunter X Hunter manga storyboards, hyping up fans for the upcoming batch of chapters to be released.

As of this writing, Togashi has completed 7 chapters and is currently drawing chapter 408.

However, fans would be shocked to know that the mangaka has become an Uber Eats delivery man, thanks to a certain delivery-related incident.

Apparently, Uber Eats delivered someone else’s order to his house so, Togashi was forced to go deliver that order to its rightful owner by himself based on the address labeled on the receipt. The author proceeds to complain in his Tweet, saying that this has been the 3rd time and Uber Eats had better fix this problem up quickly!


The full translation of Togashi’s tweet is as follows:

“Again, someone else’s food was delivered to my house via Uber Eats.😡😡 I found the real client based on the address and I delivered the food myself. Why should I waste my time? This is the 3rd time a situation like this has happened. If there is a misdelivery next time, I won’t be involved. Uber Eats, please come up with a remedy quickly.”

Togashi announced he would be continuing Hunter X Hunter from chapter 400 in October 2023 but the real confirmation came in May 2024, where he began his weekly updates on his Twitter account.

About Hunter X Hunter:

Hunter × Hunter is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s shōnen manga magazine “Weekly Shōnen Jump” since March 1998, although the manga has frequently gone on extended hiatuses since 2006. Its chapters have been collected in 37 tankōbon volumes as of November 2022.

It was first adapted in anime format in 62 episodes by Nippon Animation, which ran on Fuji Television from October 1999 to March 2001 but stopped until the York New City arc. A reboot by Madhouse aired from October 2011 to September 2014, totaling 148 episodes, with two animated theatrical films released in 2013. This reboot covered everything from the 1st arc to the Zodiac Election arc.

My Anime List describes the overall plot of Hunter X Hunter manga as follows:

“Secret treasure hoards, undiscovered wealth… mystical places, unexplored frontiers… ‘The mysterious unknown.’ There’s magic in such words for those captivated by its spell. They are called ‘Hunters’!”

Gon Freecss wants to become a Hunter so he can find his father, a man who abandoned him to pursue a life of adventure. But it’s not that simple: only one in one hundred thousand can pass the Hunter Exam, and that is just the first obstacle on his journey.

During the Hunter Exam, Gon befriends many other potential Hunters, such as the mysterious Killua; the revenge-driven Kurapika; and Leorio, who aims to become a doctor. There’s a world of adventure and peril awaiting, and those who embrace it with open arms can become the greatest Hunters of them all!
