'Hunter x Hunter' Chapter 361 Release Date Still Uncertain?; Publisher On Indefinite Hiatus?

It's been months, and fans still have not gotten a hold of any update for chapter 361 of anime Hunter x Hunter. 

On July, the manga announced a hiatus but fans are frustrated that this came when the series had just resumed after a 20 month rest. After production of just roughly three months, the series wa sput on hold with no mention on its next release date. The period produced only 11 quality episodes, which left fans speculating and anticipating over the next chapters. 

In an interview with Rocketnews 24, the series producer mentioned that there really is no assurance on the next release date. They added, "The last time the series was put on hold, it was because of Togashi-sensei's lower back pain, and once again, his condition has gotten worse, necessitating a break again." 

Hunter x Hunter creator Yoshishiro Togashi was previously known to work on mangas for only short period of time. Acclaimed as a brilliant storyteller, fans of Yoshishiro are used to the author's hiatus, although the previous chapters was grilling of an exciting storyline.  

Mobile & Apps reported that Yoshishiro's movements are restricted due to the 50-year-old manga artist' extreme agony from the hips downwards. With this, the production house is said to hire a set of new writers that would continue the series on behalf of the autthor, and that Togashi will serve as a consultant to the series for the time being. However, fans are worried as to the quality of the storyline, but nevertheless, everyone awaits the comebcak of the phenomenal "Hunter x Hunter."
