However, fans leaked Yoshihiro Togashi’s message to Ending D and you can read it in full below. Togashi said that Ending D was not something he wanted to include in the manga. However, if he dies before completing the manga, he wants us fans to consider the following text as the official ending of Hunter x Hunter:
On the shore of the lake, a girl named Jin stood motionless, holding a fishing rod in her hand. Suddenly, the fishing rod shook violently, and Jin happily exclaimed: “I’ve caught the lake lord! Minhâ has caught it!” She deftly lifted the lake lord onto her shoulder and faced a woman, declaring: “As promised, cob has captured the lake lord! Mom!” Jin approached the woman and, still carrying the fox lord on his shoulders, expressed a spirit of defiance: “Don’t talk back to me, mother. I must become a hunter.”
The woman had no other choice but could only nod. Jin, still holding the lake lord on his shoulder, left. The mother told her husband that Jin’s dream was to never leave the island and inherit their position. The father agreed, smiling, while the mother looked dissatisfied and added: “But Mr. Gon is a famous hunter… and she will leave the island one day.”
Jin affirmed: “I will never leave!” Even though she was no longer in the middle of the forest, she still heard her parents’ conversation and responded defiantly. The father said excitedly: “You have sharp eyes.”
The scene shifts to the shop, where Jin’s work continues from Mito’s period. The Lake Lord was neatly prepared and its insides were arranged. Jin thought to himself while working: “Mom will never understand. When grandpa happily talked about his memories of being a hunter, Mrs. Noko quietly left her seat. Every time Mr. Gon affirmed, his belief Someone heard you again.” She used a knife to slam down on the cutting board: “I’m tired of this job!! Waiting for someone to return after so many sad years breaks my heart… You made someone wait for me! I.”
Then, the door opened and a warm voice rang out. A chubby kid walked in, holding a fishing pole. The child exclaimed: “I have caught the true lake lord! Well, let’s glorify the whole island with him!” Jin replied: “I always… always want to be with the person I want to be with. Always together!” The child agreed: “Okay!” Both smiled brightly and were cooking. A bird flies off the island, passing over a town and its people. One person’s son, another person’s daughter and another person’s grandchildren live in different places, exchanging smiles. They can be the children of one character and the grandchildren of another. The bird flew far away.
In the background, a figure is observing the scene.
What do you think about this ending of Hunter x Hunter? Regarding the other endings, Togashi said the following:
“To that end, I have prepared three scenarios (a, b and c). When considering the proportional response from readers, ranging from satisfied to unsatisfactory, ending a was found to be 50% satisfactory and 20% unsatisfactory. This doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but it seems to me that achieving it would be safe in a way that doesn’t complicate matters with undue criticism, in my opinion.
As for ending b, opinions will be similarly divided between satisfied and dissatisfied. For ending c, I predict a 10% satisfaction rate and a 90% dissatisfaction rate. Why do I keep it present, even when the dissatisfaction rate is high? That’s because it’s my personal preference, but basically I want to think to the maximum extent of an ending to the point where I can choose none of these three and create what I see Most interestingly, that is my ideal and goal.”
