It’s hard to believe that the 2011 Hunter x Hunter anime is already ten years old. This version of Yoshiro Togashi’s story has already become a world-renowned classic in such a short period of time.
Although there isn’t any news from the author’s side due to his health issues, Takahiro Yoshimatsu, the anime’s character designer, has come through with a special illustration for the occasion.
The official website for Hunter x Hunter has released a commemorative visual for the tenth anniversary of the 2011 anime.
The visual features Hisoka, Leorio, and Kurapika standing behind Gon and Killua, holding up 1 and 0 respectively with their Nen.
Megumi Han and Mariya Ise, the voice actresses for Gon and Killua, have released a special message for Hunter x Hunter’s fans on the anime’s tenth anniversary.
Congratulations on the 10th anniversary of “HUNTER x HUNTER” broadcast ㊗️✨
When I met the original story and fell in love with Kirua, I went to see the Fuji TV version of the hunter’s musical when I was in the second year of junior high school.
Definitely my origin.
Thank you for everything so far …! !! !!

Megumi Han expresses her gratitude towards the valuable experiences and connections she gained because of her work for the series. Mariya Ise recounts her journey as a fan of the manga and how she ended up voicing her favorite character.
It is a bit sad that Yoshihiro Togashi didn’t join in on the celebrations. It just goes on to show how serious his health issues are.
Although the fans of the series understand Togashi’s condition, the fact that there hasn’t been a single chapter in almost three years is disappointing. Even for a manga that is famous for its hiatuses, this is the longest one yet.
While many of us have accepted this to be the story’s end, the anime-only fans might get treated to an OVA or two in the future. Some sections of the story take place separately from the main storyline and can be adapted in the future, like the fated battle at Heavens Arena.
