Togashi is on the list as expected. He can make 20 chapters in 3 years and still be more favored than Kishi, Kubo, and Shima.

why do people still respect him as a manga author.

Probably because that short arc in HxH this year before the hiatus was better than any other manga arc in shounen jump at least.

so? other people who have also interessting stories and who can actually draw well try to get in jump but get canceled and he is still tolerated. just move him to a monthly serialized magazine but even there he would be pulling off the same shit like he does now.

Here I'd agree. He should go monthly.

I like the list though.

He's still drawing manga. He's just not continuing the main HxH storyline right now. He's drawing Kurapika's backstory which will be an entire volume and writing for the new movie coming out.

It's not like he just stopped working.

Love how Togashi can write maybe 5 chapters this year and still be in the Top 5 authors.

Those few chapters he make are excellent.

Never got into Hunter x Hunter because I've heard that it's possible the manga might never finish. Yu Yu Hakusho was good but not THAT good. The anime really brought it to life though.

HxH is a lot better than YYH. And at this point it's not longer a 'might'

But still, right up till the Chimera arc, every page is worth reading.

Z's missing out on one of the best shounens out there because he's worried about finishing it.

Well I would want some sort of closure to a manga I read. And what do you mean shonens? What else am I missing out on?

I just meant HxH, but if you haven't read Rave Master already then you're missing out on that too.

I'm saying that a manga isn't just about the ending. If that was true, none of the arcs in between matter and you could just read the end. I don't want to spoil HxH too much, but it really doesn't need an ending as it is now.
