Hiatus Chart of Author's Work Submitted to Shounen Jump Weekly:
Since 2006, Hunter x Hunter has been on hiatus far more often than it hasn't. That year, the series appeared in only four of Weekly Shonen Jump's 48 issues, and that pretty much set the tone of sporadic new installments that readers have seen ever since. The previous record for the longest gap between issues came between June 2014 and April 2016, which kicked off only three months after another two-year hiatus. As of this writing, there hasn't been a new installment since December 2020.
