Hunter x Hunter author talks about his initial plans for the manga



In the same interview in which Yoshihiro Togashithe author of the manga Hunter X Hunterspoke about the recent changes of the manga, he also addressed his initial plans for the manga.

The information comes from a rare interview in Japan. In a letter correspondence to the Iwakura and Yoshizumi Show, Yoshihiro answered a series of questions about Hunter X Hunter. It was there that the artist was asked how much of the manga he had initially planned.
