What You Need to Know:
- Yoshihiro Togashi's manga Hunter x Hunter has something of a reputation when it comes to haituses, which made fans both rejoice and remain wary when its return was announced back in March. However, the exact reasons behind these breaks has remained unclear - until now, if fellow mangaka Hisashi Eguchi's recent statement is anything to go by!
- On TBS talk-show Otonano, Eguchi claimed that weekly serialisation is an impossible thing for humans to do. Furthermore, he stated that Togashi's string of long hiatuses is because he told Togashi he could take it easy, using himself as an example. He followed this statement with, "It's one of my greatest achievements."

What's this about? The man himself has said that he's ill, you know?
So you're the culprit!!!!!!! ヽ(;´Д｀)ﾉ
I don't think this has anything to do with it, though...
Who even is this guy? What gives him the right to say this?
... Why are people taking this kind of joke seriously?
As if you'd put your career on the line because some guy said it was okay?
Yeah, if Togashi is sick then this is just rude. I guess the mystery continues!
