The Hunter x Hunter fan community always hopes and thinks positively about the health of author Yoshihiro Togashi, even though he is having serious health difficulties, including back pain. Because of this, the ending of the manga series has become a frequent topic of discussion on forums and other social platforms.
Recently, in an interview with TV Asahi’s “Iwakura and Yoshizumi Show”, it was discussed that Togashi plans to end “Hunter x Hunter”.
When it comes to possible endings for “Hunter x Hunter,” author Togashi has four ideas in mind. Although details about the first three endings were not made clear, he classified them based on expected reader reactions. Only the fourth ending has been revealed.
Togashi said: “For the ending, I have prepared three different scenarios: A, B and C. Considering readers’ reactions, from satisfied to unsatisfied, ending A will meet the requirement of 80 % and did not meet the requirements of 20%.”
“This does not necessarily mean high ratings, but in my opinion, achieving this ending would be a safe choice, avoiding excessive criticism.”, the author added.
He continued to explain: “Ending B will divide opinions, and ending C, I predict only 10% will be satisfied and 90% will be dissatisfied. Why did I leave such an ending? Because because while it’s my personal preference, I basically want to come up with an ending that I’m most excited about, even if that means not choosing any of those three and create something that I think is ideal and fun.”
The fourth ending revealed focuses on a girl named Jin, the niece of the main character Gon. Jin’s mother is Gon’s daughter and a woman named Noko, meaning Noko is Gon’s wife in this ending. That is, the fourth ending suggests the possibility of Gon Freecss marrying Noko in the future. Togashi mentioned that this scenario would be chosen to end the manga if he passed away early.
Noko appears in the first episode of “Hunter x Hunter”
Although most people don’t remember, Noko is actually a character who has appeared in anime and manga. Gon mentioned her to Killua and the girl smiled at Gon when he left the island to become a hunter.
So who is Noko? She is one of the few children left behind on Whale Island, Gon’s hometown. In the manga and anime series, Noko appears briefly in two different arcs. During the Hunter portion, she greeted Gon as he left the dock. In the Yorknew City arc, Gon briefly mentions Noko in a conversation with Killua.
Noko’s role in Hunter x Hunter could be expanded if Yoshihiro Togashi’s contingency plan is activated. However, there is still very little information about her other than the possibility that she will become Gon’s future wife in the story.
Regarding Jin, this is a girl who has no interest in leaving the island, contrary to the wishes of her parents who wanted her to become a hunter. Jin’s parents commented that she has the blood of Gon Freecss, which suggests she could become a famous hunter in the future. Jin’s lack of interest in leaving the island may be influenced by Noko’s blood.
