After over a year, Viz Media will finally release the next volume of Hunter X Hunter in March. About time, I say. The previous volume had been released on January 2010. Viz Media releases Hunter X Hunter under its Shonen Jump Advanced lineup.

The serie is written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi (YuYu Hakusho, Level E) and started serializing in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1998. While it is still going with 27 volumes, it is currently on hiatus in Japan, meaning that Viz will be caught up in 2011. HXH is infamous for having had over 7 different hiatuses over the years.

It got an anime adaption in October 1999 on TV Tokyo, and ran untill 2001 with 62 episodes, and covered the first 11 and a half volumes of the manga. In 2002, it got an OVA series to continue the story. The OVA made 8 episodes, and covered volumes 12 and 13. In 2003, it got a second OVA, which made 8 episodes, and covered volumes 14. In 2004, it got a third OVA, which made 14 episodes, and covered volumes 15 through 18. Volumes 19 and onward have yet to get an anime. The anime and OVA are all animated by Nippon Animation. The first anime series was directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Rurouni Kenshin, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn). The first OVA was directed by Satoshi Saga (Green Legend Ran), the second OVA was directed by Yukihiro Matsushita (Blue Dragon), and the final OVA was directed by Makoto Sato.
