Too frequently, Yoshihiro Togashi's Hunter x Hunter manga returns to Shonen Jump only to leave again disappointingly soon. However, this time the short stay is planned from the start. A Kurapika short story entitled Tsuioku-hen will be published in 2013's Jump # 01, on sale December 3rd and #2, on sale the 12th.
Kurapika's story will be picked up in the Togashi supervised anime movie Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge, which premieres in Japan January 12, 2013.
The latest premiere for the movie had an illustration of the young Phantom Troupe.
