Hunter X Hunter is one of the best anime you will ever watch, and it is one of the most iconic anime series. It was so popular when it was released in the 90s. In early 1998, Yoshihiro Togashi started it. Just as other anime, Hunter X Hunter is also based on a manga series. Madhouse has not yet announced any update about Hunter X Hunter Season 7.
The first Hunter × Hunter anime adaptation was produced by the company Nippon Animation and directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi, who had previously directed the Rurouni Kenshin television series. A total of 62 episodes of Hunter × Hunter were broadcast on the Japanese terrestrial television network Fuji Television from October 16, 1999, to March 31, 2001, during the same Saturday evening timeslot as the anime version of Togashi’s previous series Yu Yu Hakusho.
A new Hunter × Hunter anime adaptation was announced in July 2011. Instead of continuing the story from the OVA series, it restarts the story from the beginning of the manga in an attempt to adapt it more accurately. The series is directed by Hiroshi Kōjina, produced by Madhouse, scripted by Atsushi Maekawa, and character designs were created by Takahiro Yoshimatsu.
Also, it released the same series with English dubbing and subtitles in April 2016 in Toonami. After season 6, Toonami with English version ended as well. After the end of season 6, demand for season 7 became massive. Hunter X Hunter has its extraordinary and tremendous fanbase. As being such a popular anime series, fans are eagerly waiting for season 7. Here is the information which we know about it.
Will there be Hunter X Hunter Season 7?
If we talk about season 7, unfortunately, the chances of season 7 coming are very low. Madhouse has not yet announced any update or plans about the new season of Hunter X Hunter.
As being such a huge production company, they are busy with other projects. They have released so many new anime series and films and are working on others currently. Also, we have information that the past six seasons have already exhausted all the material of manga. If there will be some sources that can be adapted, Madhouse will be ready to continue season 7. Madhouse Studio is responsible for creating very famous anime and thous anime next season is also expected One Punch Man Season 3, No Game No Life Season 2, Overlord Season 4, and Btooom Season 2.
Manga artists Nobuhiro Watsuki and Pink Hanamori have cited Togashi and Yu Yu Hakusho as an influence. He is one of the favorite artists of Naruto author Masashi Kishimoto. Gege Akutami and his series Jujutsu Kaisen were very influenced by Togashi and inspired by both Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter × Hunter.
Everything we know about Hunter X Hunter
The story of this anime revolves around Gon Freecss, a young boy. His father abandoned him at a very young age. Gon discovers that his father’s name is Ging Freecss, and he is a world-renowned “Hunter” by profession. By taking inspiration from his father, Gon also decides to become a licensed “Hunter” as well. He decided to give Hunter Examination. He successfully passes the hunter examination and later becomes a successful hunter. He was happy to achieve this success and be just like his father. In this whole journey of ups and down, Gon met other characters like Kurapika, Leorio, and Killua. They all later become his friends in the series. At the end of the series, Gon meets his father too.
An Expected Plot of Hunter X Hunter Next Season
This 2011 series has not yet covered the last four volumes of manga, so we can assume that the show’s creators will take it up.
In season 7, we might see the beginning of a new voyage—a voyage to a dark continent. Gon will be left behind, so people who go to the dark continent will die except Gon as there are chances that no one will survive for the dark continent’s return journey. It may sound good, but still, it is sad for most of the viewers.
So, Season 7 will be all about the Dark Continent. Also, there will be unwrapping of secrets which Ging will be talking about.
Source Material Information: Hunter X Hunter Season 7
Togashi’s manga series is the main source material for this anime. This manga series has a total of 36 volumes, among which four have not been completed. We can assume that Madhouse will use these four volumes to renew the season for Hunter X Hunter.
Though, only the last four volumes won’t be enough for one season. Also, the Dark continent Arc remains unfinished. We have no information, but still being optimistic, we hope that there will be season 7 of Hunter X Hunter.
Another setback is the health issues of mangaka Togashi. He has been facing severe health issues, which is also a reason for not finishing the volumes and starting another season. He is also facing huge pressure from fans and producers for the same.
However, Togashi has expressed his feeling and strong dedication to finish the Hunter X Hunter. He doesn’t want to disappoint his fans and viewers of anime series. From the sources, we have the information that he has asked his wife to complete this series if he dies.
Release Date: Hunter X Hunter Season 7
As we have no confirmation regarding the renewal yet, it is not possible to tell the release date. There is still so much work to do, and it will take a longer time. Most importantly, we are keeping the creator’s mental wellness as our priority. You should not worry about season 7. It is very normal for anime series to take a long time before they release the new season. We will keep you updated in case there will be any news or announcement about Season 7 of Hunter X Hunter 2011.
