Togashi (トガシ, Togashi), the author of Hunter × Hunter, makes a couple of cameo appearances in the 1999 anime adaptation.[1][2]


Togashi is often seen wearing the mask of a dog with its tongue sticking out and wears square glasses. He has long black hair.[1][2]


Togashi is known to be a pundit on how the Heavens Arena referee judge matches through their own scoring style, though his knowledge is seen to be overbearing with a lady commentator.[1]


Heavens Arena arc

During the match between Gon and Hisoka, he sits next to the lady commentator of Heavens Arena and explains to her how each individual referee judges the matches through their own personal scoring style. The commentator understands, though when she inquires who Togashi is, he refuses to answer.[1]

As Togashi explains the origin of Hisoka's Bungee Gum Nen ability, the commentator becomes annoyed by his know-it-all manner and has him removed.[1]

Togashi advises the viewers

Togashi makes another appearance after Gon and Killua get scammed at an auction site, giving the audience advice to not judge an item by just looking at its picture, especially if it's something expensive.[2]


Anime and Manga Differences

  • His role as a commentator was taken by Baka Ki El Dogra in the 2011 series, who explains how the referees distribute points[3] rather than the origin of Hisoka's Bungee Gum.[1]
