Manga creator Yoshihiro Togashi takes a lot of breaks from Hunter x Hunter. His most recent one started in September. It’s now been announced that Togashi’s manga will return on January 29.

According to IT Media, the most recent Weekly Jump confirms that Hunter x Hunter will be back late next month. Before his most recent hiatus, Togashi was quoted as saying, “Since I got Donbei udon noodles from Nissin Foods for my comeback prize, I’ll be back once again within the year.”

This latest hiatus should end after roughly a five-month gap, making it one of Togashi’s shortest breaks. As Kotaku previously reported, Togashi’s longest Hunter x Hunter publication streak is 30 issues, while his longest hiatus is 80 issues. That clocks in at a two-year, three-month break.
