Hunter x Hunter series creator Yoshihiro Togashi is back in action with the highly anticipated next chapters of the long in hiatus action series, but with some special art has imagined a huge fight between Gon and Yu Yu Hakusho’s Yusuke Urameshi! Togashi’s career is currently being celebrated with a special art exhibition in Japan to not only commemorate Hunter x Hunter’s return to the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, but the 30th Anniversary of Yu Yu Hakusho’s anime adaptation. It’s a good showcase of just how much the creator has done over his career, and how many characters have had an impact on fans.
Gon and Yusuke are dramatically different characters in not only how they approach the world around them, but the stakes the two of them find themselves in as well. They approach their fights so differently that it would be fun to imagine how it would play out if Gon and Yusuke had challenged one another to a fight. As one of Togashi’s special artworks shown during the exhibition, it turns out that the creator of both series has had that same thought as well.

How to Check out Hunter x Hunter and Yu Yu Hakusho
Yu Yu Hakusho’s now complete manga run is generally hard to find in either print or digital these days, but you can find its anime in full now streaming with Crunchyroll. As for Hunter x Hunter, the series has made its way to Viz Media’s digital Shonen Jump vault as fans can finally check out the entire run so far. The newest chapters of the series are being released there as well, so fans can not only catch up but stay caught up for as long as the series is back from its hiatus this time around.

Hunter x Hunter is now making its way through the Succession Contest arc that kicked off over four plus years ago at this point, so it’s hard to tell exactly when fans will ever see Gon again. It’s been a long, long time since he’s been involved in the series in any concrete fashion and could be much longer when you factor in how long the next hiatus just might last.
