The ending of Hunter x Hunter manga in case it was not completed as planned was revealed in a letter from author Yoshihiro Togashi to Yumiko Seki, a former member of one of his favorite idol groups – Sakurazaka46. The letter was read on the Japanese TV show Iwakura to Yoshizumi no Bangumi (The Iwakura and Yoshizumi Show) on November 21, 2023: “Broadly speaking,” Togashi said. “I have prepared 3 possible ending patterns: A, B and C. When imagining the reader’s reaction in proportion to positive and negative, Pattern A would be 80% positive and 20% negative ( This is not a review of its ending). quality, but rather my personal view that it is a safe development that is unlikely to attract much criticism). Pattern B would be an even split between positive and negative. And for Sample CI, imagine about 10% positive and 90% negative. The reason I kept option C extremely negative is simply because it’s my personal preference. However, ideally I’d like to come up with an ending that’s so interesting that none of these three patterns are needed. Just for your reference, I’ll reveal the D model has slipped through the cracks – so if I accidentally die while the job is unfinished, please show some leniency and assume this is how it ends .
Togashi points out that his rate is not necessarily indicative of the quality of the ending. However, combined with his personal preference for option C despite its expected lack of fan support suggests whichever ending he chooses will be Subversive, to say the least. Togashi does not outline the expected reaction to choice D. However, that is the ending the manga would have in the event of his death. This version can be read below:
A girl sat motionless, holding a fishing rod on the shore of the lake. Suddenly, the fishing rod bent sharply, the girl screamed. Her name is Gin.Gin: “There is one, there is one, there is one!!” Holding up his catch, Gin proudly stood before a woman and declared: “I caught one as promised! Mom!!” She approached the woman and whispered: “So, don’t ever tell me to become a hunter again…!” The woman reluctantly nodded. Gin left, taking his catch with him.Mom: “I thought if she caught a fish, she could wake up to go hunting, but…” Looking for approval from her husband by her side,Dad: “She wants nothing more than to run the store for the rest of her life and never leave the island… Please respect that.”The woman was still not satisfied.Mom: “Well, maybe she’ll change her mind midway… Honestly, why do you and Gin hate it so much… Oh yeah, you’re related by blood to Grandma Mito and Grandma Noko that…” It seemed like that woman didn’t know that Noko and Mito were not related. Her husband smiled wryly. Not wanting to give up, the woman continued: “But Grandpa Gon is a famous hunter…! One day that girl will definitely…”Gin (from deep in the forest): “No means no!!!!”The daughter shouted from deep in the forest, where she couldn’t even be seen, let alone hear her parents’ exchange. The father happily whispered: “She saw right through you.” The scene changes to a store that has been open since the Mito era. The owner of the swamp has been neatly carved, with all the parts ready. While working, Gin had an internal monologue:Gin: (I don’t understand… Whenever Grandpa [Gon] Happily recounting memories of hunting days, grandmother quietly left. Whatever Mrs. Noko could answer came from old information… Her loneliness, not being able to be with her grandfather, it all came pouring out…) She slammed the knife in her hand against the cutting board. (I will do not do it) !! Having to wait for someone’s return for months or years while my heart feels like it’s being squeezed… and making someone wait for me!!)(I…) The sound of the door opening. A comfortable, gentle voice rang out. A plump boy walked in, carrying food.Boy: “I picked wild vegetables ~ Oh wow, so many ~ We actually caught the owner! Let’s serve it to everyone on the island!Gin: (Forever…I just want to be with the person I want to be with forever…)Boy: “I can just imagine everyone’s happy faces~ Okay, let’s begin~!”Gin: (Together… Forever!!) “Yes!” They both cooked with bright smiles. A bird took off from the island. The bird flies in the vast sky. Below the bird is a city of some sort. All kinds of people. Someone’s son, someone’s daughter, someone’s grandchildren live in many different places, smiling at someone. Maybe even someone’s child or grandchild. that thing character. A bird takes off and flies into the distant sky. From behind, the silhouette of someone is seeing it off. The End. Includes a scene reminiscent of Gon’s determination to capture the owner of the swamp to become a Hunter.
The conclusion of Togashi’s Hunter x Hunter plan comes in the second of two parts following last week’s edition of Iwakura to Yoshizumi no Bangumi. In the previous volume, it was revealed that the original plan for the manga was to feature a timeskip. Despite no longer continuing with the planned ending, Togashi’s backup plans may indicate a lack of confidence in completing his series. However, the author is preparing for a sequel to the manga, tweeting the words “Start Again” in October 2023 with an image of his drawing setup. It is hoped that next year will see a more stable publication following last year’s announcement that the manga would switch from weekly to monthly publication.
