About

Hunter x Hunter Season 7: Hunter x Hunter is an anime series based on Yoshihiro Togashi’s Hunter Hunter manga that aired from 2011 to 2014. The story begins with a young child named Gon Freecss, who discovers one day that his father, whom he assumed was dead, is alive and well. He finds that his father, Ging, is a legendary “Hunter,” a person who has shown to be an exceptional member of humanity. Even though Ging abandoned his son to pursue his ambitions, Gon becomes motivated to follow in his father’s footsteps, pass the challenging “Hunter Examination,” and eventually find his father to become a Hunter in his own right.

Release Date

There is currently no release date for Hunter x Hunter Season 7. Season 7 could be broadcast as soon as 2024, depending on whether Madhouse decides to continue the series.

The launch release will determine how long Togashi takes to complete the next manga instalment.

The lack of manga material is the primary reason for Hunter X Hunter’s season 7 delay.

Madhouse does not have enough completed stories to turn into an entire season until Togashi can publish more manga.

Togashi spoke candidly about the manga in an interview with Weekly Shonen Jump in May 2018. He stated during the interview, “I need to finish scripting ‘Hunter x Hunter.'” It’s gotten to the point where the story ends first, or I die before it does. But I aim to complete it.”

He has always stated a desire to finish Hunter X Hunter.

Hunter x Hunter Season 7Previous gaps were not an issue for Madhouse because there was already enough content published to work on new anime.

The Hunter X Hunter manga then went on its longest sabbatical yet. As a result, the anime could catch up to the manga.

Fans were unsure whether Madhouse would ever adopt other manga.

Though Togashi is now working on the new Hunter X Hunter manga, he has stated that the next arc (the Succession Contest Arc) would be even lengthier than the Chimera Ant arc (which was the longest anime) manga arc of the series).

Madhouse is unlikely to adopt an unfinished arc, so the anime’s seventh season could be delayed even more.

There could be additional reasons for the season 7 delay, such as Madhouse focusing on other projects (such as The Vampire Dies in No Time and Sonny Boy).

The main reason, though, is a shortage of content for Hunter X Hunter.

Prospective Cast

Megumi Han voiced the main character Gon Freecss. He tweeted a snapshot of a microphone on Instagram with the comment, “is delighted to return to the starting place and was recorded alongside her ‘partner.” According to IMDb, Han’s most notable early role, aside from a few minor roles, was “Hunter x Hunter.” Meanwhile, Mariya Ise, the voice actor for Killua Zoldyck, posted on Twitter that she was “recording for a project. She was thrilled to catch up with her ‘partner.'” If these messages are about “Hunter x Hunter,” two key cast members will return to voice the main characters.

If the Japanese production attempts to keep the same voice cast, there’s no reason the English version wouldn’t. This means Erica Mendez might reprise her role as Gon Freecss, Cristina Valenzuela could reprise her role as Killua Zoldyck, and Michael McConnohie could return to narrate Season 7.

Prospective Plot

Madhouse has one season for each manga story arc. The Dark Continent arc lasts only eight chapters in the manga, from chapter #340 (“Special Mission”) until chapter #348. (“Resolve”). Because this arc is brief, the Succession Contest storyline might also be included in season 7. The plot of Season 7 would begin with the Kakin empire wishing to expand its territory by embarking on an expedition to explore the Dark Continent. Following the manga’s plot, Kurapika Kurta is hired to join the group at the same time other characters (including Ging Freecss and the Zodiacs) join the expedition. The adventure into the Dark Continent begins with the sponsorship of the V5.
