‘Hunter x Hunter’ anime series coming to an end at Episode 148

hunter-x-hunter-shock

Sad news for Hunter x Hunter fans with word coming through that the anime adaptation of the enduring shonen manga will wrap up its run at episode 148.

The news broke thanks to Megumi Han, the voice of series protagonist Gon Freecss confirming on her official blog that she has finished all of her recording for the series and that she is saddened by the conclusion of the anime. Anime News Network posted a translation of the blog which you can see below:

“Now that I’ve talked about the turning point for this column, there’s something I want to talk about. The other day, at Sanbunzaka Studio, the place of all the beginnings, we conducted the recording for episode 148 of Hunter x Hunter, which will serve as the turning point for the anime for now. I will not say “final episode” myself. I will be stubborn and only call it “episode 148.” I say this, because in terms of episode numbers, in a certain meaning, this will be the final episode, but I feel that it also feels like the start of a new beginning. If you ask me, episode 147 is the final episode, and 148 is sort of an epilogue. The original manga is still continuing, and the adventures haven’t ended yet. An unknown world still awaits. Actually, it’s like what has happened up until now in the story was nothing more than a prologue, and it gets me even more expecting for what’s to come.

Though I say that, when I think that “I’ve been going to the same place every week at the same time for three years, but next week, this won’t happen…,” I get very sad.

…I know I shouldn’t talk too much, but I will condense my feelings right here. To everything up until now, and to everyone, I say, “Thank you.”

This is of course sad news for Hunter x Hunter fans, but not entirely unexpected considering the events of the manga making a nice stopping point for the series before it embarked onto the Dark Continent arc. On top of that, it has become increasingly clear that the anime is catching up to the manga at a very fast pace due to Yoshihiro Togashi’s 2 year long hiatus following the completion of the Election arc.

Stay tuned for more information on the conclusion of the Hunter x Hunter anime series as it surfaces. Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

  1. I’m optimistic that the anime will continue in the future. I’m willing to wait. I’ve already predicted this since Togashi-sensei is notorious for taking ultra-long hiatus.

      Yeah I think a lo of other Togashi fans are thinking the same way.

  2. im sad that 148 is the final ending,i thought its only the beggining adventure of gon and killua sister..im very dissapointed…im waiting for a match between gon and hisoka..so hopefully they gonna make more episodes..

    I didn’t know what anime was until my son told me to watch hunter x hunter, now I am hooked. I can’t get enough of Killua and Gon. This is a great anime with substance. It always seems that when I find something worthwhile to watch, it ends. I have watched the whole story from the beginning about 3 times now and if it doesn’t finish up the stories that need to be told, well that will be very sad and I will quit watching altogether. Please keep it going.
    Sincerely, a mom that loves hunter x hunter.

  4. This is the stupidest decision and the people who are in charge need to be fired!!
    what a disgrace!! sloppy and unprofessional decisions. One of the top 5 best animes ever and they put it aside.
    someone needs to answer for this!

  5. Some one needs to tell the people incharge something their writing one of the best animes ever and I’ve read Manga and watch almost ever anime this show has no were as many episodes as bleach or one piece or conan case closed or dragon Ball z but probably has a larger fan base or close to that of all those shows for just the amount of episodes it’s amazing and really hope the keep make more soon.

    -_- It’s so sad that the best anime I’ve watched and the best manga I’ve read has gone to an end. God, I can’t even imagine that Killua and Gon would say goodbye in that way.

  7. Many of these new creations are about shape and texture as much as color and style.
    Style- Most of us looks at the design and style while buying any item.

    Wearing an elegant UGG boot with tight jeans can give you a classy and beautiful look.

  8. Unacceptable!

  9. Eino Flores

    so sad but I’m willing to wait until it’s come back..I really love this anime and I can’t wait to see what happens
    next

  10. You can adopt their styles to suit yours; this is
    one of the best ways to determine the right fashion for you.

    Thread and stitching – thread used in stitching is always the same as the colour of
    the leather. The cable breaking system is also new feature added to
    the line of three wheel strollers.

  11. Also, they have ruled the market due to their anatomical constructions of shoes that make the shoes
    anti-stress with special shock absorption system.

    Bourne’s President, Thomas Mc – Claskie, always uses
    his creative imagery to make trendy shoes for men. Wearing an elegant UGG
    boot with tight jeans can give you a classy and beautiful look.

  12. I thought Dark Continent would just be the beginning of their Ultimate journey, And yet they end it:((
