Because of Yoshihiro Togashi’s ongoing health problems, Hunter x Hunter has deserted its normal release schedule, but the anime community is still anxiously awaiting news of the next appearance of Gon and his fellow hunters.

Fortunately, the mangaka still uses the chance to interact with his followers and hasn’t made any announcements about ending the wildly successful shonen series. In a recent post, Yoshihiro Togashi offered a recommendation for a writer whose eerie tales could be more at home in the universe of the Hunters.

Yoshihiro Togashi recently recommended the writings of horror author Yumeaki Hirayama, particularly his most recent book, The Story Of What I Did to the Pelicans in the Park.

The creator said the following:

“It’s like a nightmare that you experience while waking up. I’m referring to the works of Yumeaki Hirayama. Since the printed words are naturally visualized in my brain as if I’m watching a movie, I would say I experience novels visually. Even though the author is usually most skilled at helping me visualize the scenes in the novel, there are some elements in this book that force me to visualize them, such as the eerie and peculiar characters, and the unexpected and crazy words that I would never have thought of own my own. You should read this book the experience its unique flavor that cannot be replaced.”
