In addition to 'HUNTER x HUNTER' serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump, a Twitter account believed to be by Yoshihiro Togashi, a cartoonist known for works such as 'YuYu Hakusho' and 'Level E', was confirmed. ..

It is said that this account is mainly for communicating the progress of the manuscript, and in the first tweet, '4 more episodes for the time being' and a part of the manuscript being worked on are released.

It is true that the account icon is an illustration of a dog that Mr. Togashi uses as a self-portrait, and it is said that the method of assigning a number to the lower right corner of the manuscript is also Mr. Togashi's, but it is difficult for a third party to judge whether it is the person himself or herself. ..

However, Kosei Inoue, a cartoonist who has works such as 'During the Demon's Life !?' and is also a former assistant of Mr. Togashi, confirmed that it was genuine after RT the tweet of the account as 'genuine'. Tweeted that it was done.

In addition, Yusuke Murata, a manga artist known for drawing 'Eyeshield 21' and 'One Punch Man,' also sends out information that he is the account of Mr. Togashi himself.

In addition, the official Twitter account of the Weekly Shonen Jump editorial department where 'HUNTER x HUNTER' is serialized has not shown any reaction at the time of writing the article. For this reason, many people liken the situation to the hunter exam. The following is from Akihito Tsukushi, the author of 'Made in Abyss'.

By the way, it is necessary to be careful because it is a fake account using the icon of 'Jump editorial department' that RT the tweet that seems to belong to Mr. Togashi and announce the resumption of 'HUNTER x HUNTER' serialization.
