Well, supposedly Togashi's taking his leave upon the manga's writing, not sure if whether or not he will more or less still conduct its direction, but it is rumored that Sui Ishida (Creator of Tokyo Ghoul) may take over...anyhow,

Thoughts!?

If Ishida takes over, I'm all for it but I'd be worried about Tokyo Ghoul's future. Then again, Ishida was able to complete well-drawn weekly release of the series, do live "painting" sessions on Twitch, complete a 2016 calendar with unique artwork, puns, and description for each day of the year, and still be fairly active on social media. I'm hoping Ishida finally comes out of the shadows, if he does take over HxH, since his real name and appearance hasn't been made public yet. I was lucky enough to be able to write on the only fan message notebook for him and I had to travel a long distance and learn Japanese for that. I don't think most of his fans are even aware there is one. Am I fanboying? Fuck yes I am.

Please, does anyone actually think this is legit? It's on the level of a neighbour's gossips...

Yes. I've moved it there now. I've also edited the title to express that it's more rumor than confirmed information.

That article is full of "It is rumored" and "it is speculated" and "no official announcement" so I won't believe much until I see another chapter. But I also don't care. I was finding the latest arc of the manga to be pretty uninteresting and don't see a lot of value in continuing it.

It's interesting if this is true. It means that the franchise is worth enough that the publisher wants it to continue even if the original creator is not willing to continue it himself. I don't think I have heard of that happening before with manga, usually even if it's a long running manga it just gets canceled. I guess that Hunter x Hunter has the popularity that it's worth trying to get someone else to continue it rather than just canceling it.

Honestly, I mean no disrespect to Sui Ishida, but I don't really think anyone is able to write HunterxHunter except Togashi. The world he created has so much direction and personality, with so many elements that stand out completely, but yet all feel like they fit together, that I don't see someone other than the original author being able to live up to the standard. It would be like if someone else took over doing One Piece, it's unlikely it would work out.

Honestly I would just prefer to have Togashi take the time off that he needs and coming back to the manga when he feels ready. I don't care if it takes years, it's what's best for the story imo.

But what if he doesn't want to ever come back to it?

Wasn't it Sui Ishia that did that one-shot prequel about Hisoka? How did that turn out?

Yah the guy that does not even have/like/let assistance help with his manga is going to let someone take over his longest and most popular work? Togashi would rather die and let it get axed then let that happen. He is by far the most prideful and stubborn manga creator out there. If something like this was going to happen they would get some to draw it not write and draw. I would like to see Kubo do it since he has nothing to do.... but never going to happen because Togashi is never going to let anyone have hunter

There's no source in that article so I'm going to take this with a grain of salt.

That fight with the clown was bananas though... and his arc don't pay off tell the end. Like yyh. It a slow grind that does out with a bang.

Well I'm pretty sure I recall him saying that he does but regardless, if that's the case then it's probably best for the series to just be wrapped up there. The thing about manga is that they aren't like the comics you see in america or europe. Manga are strongly encouraged to be much more personalized, each following a specific vision from the author, prefferably with an already set up beginning, middle and end (albeit one that can be stretched out significantly with lots of room for addition). In America it's pretty common for one comic author to leave a series and be replaced relatively seamlessly, but when you try that with manga you get pretty jarring results that can still be successful, sure, but the general consensus usually is that it isn't nearly as good as before. Just look at Naruto. You can start to see a very evident decline in interest (in the west anyway, I dunno about Japan) when lead assistant, Mikio Ikimoto, started to become more prominent in the creation of Naruto's chapters. At one point you notice his style starting to protrude more and more in the linework, to the point where near the end of the series the art, despite still being credited to Kishimoto, is almost indistinguishable from his own (as seen in Naruto's sequel manga, Boruto. Which Ikimoto drew) it's around this point that the manga and anime both started to diminish in popularity around that point in the story, and most fans agree that this was where the series started to go down in quality.

In the west you also get twice a much time for a single issue at the least (two weeks) and they have about 4-6 people working on those issues. I read manga and American comics. Also people for get that Togashi has been work long for jump for about 30 years and has already a classic manga under his belt. Also has a wife and 2 kids.
