While many people online had speculated that this could be a prank from a troller trying to stir up content around the popular series. It was all laid to rest as it was discovered that the One Punch Man mangaka was following the account.

Why Hunter X Hunter is on Hiatus
Hunter X Hunter is a series which has been in serialization since 1998. Regarded as a perfect shonen with the Chimera Ant Arc and York New City being two of shonen’s most beloved stories.
It has two anime adaptations with the 2011 adaptation suspected to restart as the manga moves forward.
So it might be a shock that the series keeps going on hiatus from time to time. Since 2016, the manga has since inconsistencies in release but the current hiatus takes the cake for being the longest time a manga series has gone on hiatus.
The reason behind the hiatus is Yoshiro Togashi, the mangaka himself. Having given the world one of the peak shonen manga series in Yu Yu Hakusho, Togashi started Hunter X Hunter with the hopes of perfecting his art.
But his serious back issues have put him on bed rest. And like the rigid traditions and customs of Japanese people, Togashi vowed to illustrate the manga himself, leading to these frequent bumps in the completion of the manga.
The fans have been waiting for around 4 years and the fans have something to say. But more than saying all of them seem to be in tears about Togashi’s health and the return of the series.
yes yes yes 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭🔥🔥🔥
