Weekly Shonen Jump manga Hunter x Hunter has recently reached a new record in continuous serialization. As of 2012 issue #8, scheduled to go on sale January 23rd, the manga has been serialized in WSJ for 22 consecutive issues (starting with 2011 issue #35-36, which was put on sale August 8th, 2011).
