Hunter X Hunter Season 7 - Latest Updates on Release Date, Cast, And Plot

When the second anime version of “Hunter x Hunter” completed its run in 2014 with the “Election Arc,” fans hoped for more. From 2014 through 2018, series creator Yoshihiro Togashi continues to develop content for the acclaimed manga of the same name in small increments. Why haven’t those tales been adapted into an anime?

Even avid “Hunter x Hunter” fans on Reddit have become discouraged now that more than half a decade has gone with no actual news. Many people believe that Togashi’s health troubles have finally gotten the best of him and that their favorite anime characters will never see their storylines concluded.

At least, that’s how the community felt before a pair of cryptic social media posts from voice actresses who worked on the original Japanese version of “Hunter x Hunter” appeared. One was posted on Megumi Han’s Instagram, who voiced Gon Freecss, and the other was posted on Mariya Ise’s Twitter account, who voiced Killua Zoldyck.

Unfortunately, for those who don’t speak Japanese, both of those signs are difficult to decipher, so let’s dive into everything we know about “Hunter x Hunter” Season 7’s release date, cast, and plot.

When is Hunter x Hunter Season 7 coming out?

The lack of major content from the “Hunter x Hunter” manga is the most serious impediment to the launching of a new season of “Hunter x Hunter.” The manga has always moved at Yoshiro Togashi’s pace, and there have been several major hiatuses throughout the last decade.

What if the anime creators chose to follow a “Game of Thrones” approach and create Season 7 from scratch? This could be the case if fans interpret Megumi Han and Mariya Ise’s cryptic social media signals as an indication that development on the next chapter of “Hunter x Hunter” has begun. Madhouse Animation, who created the first six seasons, has proven that it can produce content swiftly. The company produced 148 episodes of the show between 2011 and 2014, with three seasons airing in 2012. There is a huge time gap between the Japanese and English versions of the show broadcast, but after the dubbed version began going, it produced numerous seasons per year.

As a result, assuming production is in progress, a new season may debut by the end of 2021, and if that happens, viewers could see an English version by 2022 – but these are only estimates.

Who will be in Hunter x Hunter Season 7’s cast?

Fans currently have only Mariya Ise’s and Megumi Han’s social media remarks to go on in terms of who to expect in the voice cast. Thankfully, Funimation has translated these messages to give English-speaking fans an idea of what they could indicate for the series’ future.

Megumi Han, who played Gon Freecss, tweeted a snapshot of a microphone on Instagram with the remark “is extremely delighted to return to her’starting place’ and was recorded alongside her ‘partner,'” as translated by Funimation. Han’s most notable early role, according to IMDb, was “Hunter x Hunter.” Meanwhile, Mariya Ise, who plays Killua Zoldyck, posted on Twitter that she was “recording for a project, and was thrilled to meet up with her ‘partner,'” according to Funimation. If these messages are about “Hunter x Hunter,” two of the major cast members will reprise their roles as the main protagonists.

There’s no reason why the English dub wouldn’t use the same voice cast as the Japanese version. This means Erica Mendez might reprise her role as Gon Freecss, Cristina Valenzuela could reprise her role as Killua Zoldyck, and Michael McConnohie could narrate Season 7.

What will be the storyline for Hunter x Hunter Season 7?

As previously stated, the incomplete source material, the “Hunter x Hunter” manga, is the main roadblock to the upcoming season of “Hunter x Hunter.” The manga is known for being delayed, but the most current hiatus, which began in late 2018, is reportedly owing to Yoshihiro Togashi’s chronic health concerns and, according to CBR, a suspected fascination with the “Dragon Quest” video game series.

If Season 7 of “Hunter x Hunter” is ever released, it will most likely be the final chapter in Gon Freecss and the Hunters’ story. Togashi stated to Weekly Shonen Jump in 2018, just before the manga’s longest hiatus, “‘Hunter x Hunter’ must be completed. It’s either the story ends first or I die first. However, I intend to finish it.”

While it may be difficult for fans to say goodbye to a series as huge and detailed as “Hunter x Hunter,” they should be prepared to do so regardless of whether Season 7 is ever released. Hopefully, that ending includes more of the spectacular anime battles that the series’ fans have grown to expect.
