Hunter x Hunter Fans Get Hopes Up for New Anime Thanks to Voice Actor Posts


When it comes to a long-running, fan-favorite series like Yoshihiro Togashi's Hunter x Hunter, we'll take what we can get at this point. The manga has gone through so many hiatuses that it's become a meme over the years, and Madhouse's 2011 anime adaptation—as glorious as it was—still had more ground to cover when it ended. Now, thanks to some social media posts from two of the lead Japanese voice cast members, fans have their hopes up for more anime.

It all started when Mariya Ise—who voices Killua in the 2011 adaptation—tweeted that she was recording for a new project and was happy to meet her "partner." Then the speculation really hit a fever pitch when Megumi Han—the voice behind protagonist Gon—shared some similarly cryptic info on her Instagram.

Like Ise, Han said she's recording with her "partner." She also referred to what she's working on simply as "That Project" and noted that she's "returning to her starting point." Gon was Han's first major role, so it would certainly be seen as a starting point for her career.

Does this mean we have more Hunter x Hunter anime to look forward to? Honestly, it could be anything, from something completely unrelated to a voice work for a new Hunter x Hunter mobile game. If it turns out to be something more, though, we'll be just as excited as everyone else!
