Hunter x Hunter Season 7 is officially confirmed, Fans were eagerly waiting for a new season right after season 6 concluded in 2016 but it has been six years since the last season’s release on Netflix.

Hunter x Hunter is one of the most iconic strongest anime character series for 2022 but there is very limited information available regarding the renewal of the HxH anime series. HxH is based on a manga series, that Yoshihiro Togashi started in early 1998.

The adventure anime TV series was directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi and written by Nobuaki Kishima, character designing was done by Takahiro Yoshimatsu, and production was done under Madhouse Studio.

On MyAnimeList, Hunter x Hunter is ranked at #8 with a rating of 9.05 with about 2,314,941 members. Meanwhile, on IMBD the series had received a rating of 9.0, which is based on user feedback.

But recent activity from Togashi and other creatives associated with the show has fans wondering if season 7 is on the horizon!

An English dubbed version of the series was released on Toonami in April 2016. After season 6 of the English version ended in Toonami as well, the demand for season 7 became even higher.

Hunter x Hunter Season 7 Latest News in 2022

On 24th May 2022, an unverified Twitter account named @Un4v5s8bgsVk9Xp posted a picture of the corner of a piece of paper with the number 6 written in ink. The caption of this image (when roughly translated to English) reads, 4 more episodes for the time being. The unverified account already has 659.8k followers and tells users in their bio that the profile is official.

Although users were debating whether this was fake news or not, Japanese Manga artist Yusuke Murata responded to the Tweet, saying: It was with the person himself. After that initial tweet, several others were posted close together, all showing the same thing a corner of a page with different numbers. Like, on the 26th of May 2022, the number 7 was posted.

This continued until the 6th June 2022 when Togashi captioned a post, saying, For the time being, 3 more episodes. The post was a detailed sketch showing some recognizable HxH characters.

After this post, the numbers restarted and continue to be posted regularly. The last tweet on Togashi’s account was a number 2 again with the caption, For the time being, two more episodes. Nuts. When I was longing for a postcard craftsman, posted on 14th June 2022.

VIZ showed off the new cover for the HxH The Complete Series Blu-ray box set in March 2022. While the cover looks great, the use of Complete implies that the series, too, is complete. Madhouse has been open to adapting the installment before. But they have not acted on creating a season 7 up to this point.

Hunter x Hunter Season 7 Release Date

The six seasons of Hunter x Hunter created by the Madhouse animation studios have a total of 148 episodes. Only three seasons of them premiered in 2012 because there was no lack of material. That’s what I’d call a nice place to end the sixth season: the ’13th Hunter Chairman election’ storyline.

Hunter X Hunter Season 7 has yet to get an official announcement from the creators, thus an exact release date cannot be predicted. Until that announcement is made, however, we must remain optimistic about the series continuation. A long pause may be in store if we haven’t heard of any cancellation announcements from the studio.

We have enough content for another season, there will be a total of 12 episodes in the Hunter x Hunter Season 7, which is anticipated to premiere in mid-2023. We will have to wait for an official confirmation from Madhouse themselves.

Is Hunter x Hunter Season 7 On Netflix?

The main cause of the Hunter x Hunter Season 7 delay is the current lack of manga material. During this interview, Togashi said, “I need to finish writing ‘Hunter x Hunter.’ It has come to the point where either the story concludes first, or I die before that happens. But I do intend to finish it. He has always expressed eagerness to complete Hunter X Hunter.

There may be other reasons for season 7’s delay, like Madhouse focusing on their other projects (such as The Vampire Dies in No Time and Sonny Boy). But the leading cause appears to be a lack of content for Hunter X Hunter. 

However, we may have some hopes as the creator Yoshihiro Togashi created his Twitter account to give fans an update. In a tweet, he shows a manga panel with the number six where the caption translates to “4 more episodes for the time being”. This is believed to be related to the manga chapters and not about the anime version.

Togashi has fallen victim to back pain and isn’t able to work well and continue the story. With passing time, the hopes are dying and fans may not get Hunter x Hunter Season 7 or a third movie. The show has got some game versions too.

Though Togashi is now thought to be working on the new Hunter X Hunter manga, he has spoken about the next arc (the Succession Contest Arc) being even longer than the Chimera Ant arc (which was the longest anime and manga arc of the series).

Is Hunter x Hunter Finished?

It is important to note that the Hunter X Hunter anime was never canceled after season 6. There simply hasn’t been any news about a season 7. All that being said, if Togashi is working on more Hunter X Hunter manga, there seems to be no reason that Madhouse would refuse to adapt it into a season 7.

Yes, the HXH anime series ended on September 23, 2014, with the release of the 148th episode. There will be no more episodes of the anime series but the manga volumes will continue to release.

The first volume was released in 1998 and the manga has been published in over 35 volumes till 2022 in English format. You can still read the manga chapters if you want to know about the rest of Gon’s adventures. It is available on the VIZ official website.

How long that takes will depend on when the mangas themselves are finished. It is impossible to guess precisely when a Hunter X Hunter season 7 can be expected. Especially with how little Madhouse has engaged in recent activity.

Episode 148 concluded by depicting the 339th chapter. So, you can start reading the additional content from chapter 340 itself. However, there are only 391 additional chapters. Thus, there’s only additional content for 52 chapters.

Hunter x Hunter Season 7 Characters & Cast

Hunter X Hunter series has some of the most notable members in its cast, which include are:

  • Issel Futamata as Narrator
  • Gon’s associate, Megumi Han
  • Christina Valenzuela as Killua Zoldyck
  • Mariya Ise Zoldyck
  • Erika Harlancher as Kurapika
  • Hisoka Morrow is played by Daisuke Namikawa
  • Leorio Paladiknight is played by Mathew Mercer.
  • Hisoka Morrow is played by Ken Silverstein.

Though the Dark Continent includes few of the original characters and instead introduces new characters.

Hunter x Hunter Season 7 Plot

As mentioned, the biggest hold-up for the next season of HxH is the unfinished source material, the HxH manga. The manga is notorious for being delayed, but the most recent pause, which has lasted since late 2018, is supposedly due to Yoshihiro Togashi’s chronic health issues and, according to CBR, a possible obsession with the “Dragon Quest” video game series.

However, if Season 7 ever arrives, it will likely be the endgame for the story of Gon Freecss and the Hunters. In 2018, right before the manga went on its longest hiatus, Comic Book reports that Togashi told Weekly Shonen Jump, It has come to the point where either the story concludes first or I die before that happens. But I do intend to finish it.

So while it might be tough for fans to say goodbye to a series as epic and elaborate as HxH, they should probably be prepared to do so, whether Season 7 ever arrives or not. Hopefully, that ending comes with some more of the epic anime fights that fans have come to expect from the series.

Hunter x Hunter Season 7 Trailer

There is no official Trailer & teaser that has been released as of now. I’m going to share the official English trailer Set 7 that might help you to imagine something about season 7.

Sales & Merchandise

There has been a sale of more than 15,000 copies. DVD/Blu-Ray discs contribute to around 15-20% of the revenue for an anime series. This may sound un-profitable and also made many animes a failure.

Anime Series can promote a lot of products making it a booming industry. Some of the products which were sold as merchandise were:

Some of the figures are beautiful like this Naruto Men T-Shirt, and the One Piece Zoro Shirt, Men and Women Also, check out this Gaming Mouse Pad, Maid Sama Posters one since it looks the best.

There is also plenty of My Hero Academia BackpackHoodies, Kaicho wa Maid Sama Misaki Ayuzawa Cosplay Costume, and even cool stuff like this Keychain.

Where Can I Watch Hunter x Hunter Season 7?
