neferpitou thread? nerferpitou thread
too beautiful for the world of hunter
Is that a trap?
>pitou sounds like the spanish word for dick
also a shit, got rekt by Netero then Gon and only beat Kite because of an ambush attack.
Gon, Kurapika, Alluka and others plot hax should all get wrecked on the Dark Continent.
Meh. Togashi did the face better.
it's like the color ruined it

What an excellent thread.
2011 version is such a shitty adaptation, the manga is carrying it alone, frustrating how they gave HxH to a terrible director.
When did Gon because this broken? I remember reading the beginning of the arc and I thought the guys had to go through another training arc to beat the shit out of these ants.
Realistically, the ants weren't beaten with fair methods. Togashi probably figured he'd need some asspulls for the ants to possibly be beaten (this applies mostly to Pitou and Youpi)
Is this nigga serious
Please be trolling right now. You cannot be serious about this.
Don't fall for it.
I thought both were done well personally, and was surprised the frame turned out as well as it did in the manga. They have the same style and are essentially the same except the added color. kind of like a 16oz box of MM's compared to a 16oz bag of MM's, same thing but executed differently.
mentioned maybe the scene COULD have been better if they did it strictly black and white to stay true to the "dark" eyes from the manga?
Either way I like it.
Chimera Ant Arc is when HxH devolves into excessive amounts of explanation.
It crosses the line from "the thinking man's shounen" to Togashi trying too hard to sound smart. Only gets worse with the election arc and Alluka.
Please, just look at the latest episode, it's a goddamn slideshow, Ikalgo vs Welfin I'll have more budget tha Netero vs Meruem.
Black and white would have improved it. Sort of like how the screen desaturates and adds a filter when gore happens. Though just for this arc because of Togashi's art being all over the place.
Shit OP you read my mind. I come home from work thinking I'll make a catbuggirlboy thread, and here we are.
I'll start by dumping some newer pixiv pics.
How is this male?
Is it actually male? Why does a male have hips, small breasts, and sex hair like that?
I've already dismissed you. Anyone who can't appreciate the beauty that was '11 versions of Gon vs Hisoka, everything with Uvougin, or the dodgeball game, isn't worth my time. Troll elsewhere.
I remember when no one knew what hair color to give it. I like blonde best. I still have yet to get used to Machi's hair being pink. Despite all of the Troupe looking like one big freak show, pink hair on her is just so outlandish.
Explanation x Explanation.
So what will the fallout be for Gon-san for those who've managed to avoid these threads.I look forward to bitter tears and multiple threads.
nyan nyan pitouri
This, I actually liked it back when it didn't try hard to sound complicated.
Kurapika's vengeance arc was arguably one of the most satisfying arcs I've ever seen in anime and manga.
Togashi has no problem making a good story and likable characters, he should stop trying to be something he's not cut for(making HxH a seinen manga instead of shonen) and just do things the way he does them best.
Anyone? Is it explicitly stated in the manga that it's male?
99 already covered it, I honestly don't see the point of this remake if they are animating the CA Arc like shit.
>no more troupe
>no more mafia Kurapika
Why did Togashi have to stop like this?
It's gender is never explicitly stated anywhere but it's been referred to using male pronouns in some databook or whatever, and the ant itself uses boku. But the anime design has significant breasts compared to the flat manga Pitou, as well as a super feminine voice.
but it's cute as fuck either way.
How does his balls not explode when he flexes his legs that much?
I need a full gif of this
Pitou's adorable but I just can't sexualize it along with Kurapika. Well, mainly when he's in his tribal clothes.
Is Pitou just an insane killing machine?
Or can she be sexed?
she'd kill you and fuck your reanimated corpse
>brutally murders Kite
>uses him as a zombie tool
>suddenly everyone's OTP
it's pretty kawaii
crap forgot image
Blue skin ruins it.
You're doing good work anon.
W-what are they saying?
ching chong, nip nong fong ______
I remember being 13 and so enthusiastic about learning moon. If only I had kept at it...
From a certain blogger:
>But Pitou is the one who's shown motivations unrelated to The King - the thrill of the fight, the desire to test his strength, abject sadism.
Seriously? Sadism? Abject sadism? It was only for science. Some people just don't understand.
She's just a renaissance man.
I think the ancillary merchandise makers have a pretty definite idea about what Pitou's gender SHOULD be.
The manga, on the other hand...
That silhouette doesn't match up with Pitou's actual anatomy and was probably only drawn to emphasize the feline side of its being
although that doesn't mean I'm taking a side in the whole girlvsboy thing
I personally like the fact that Pitou is indeterminable, who's gender is both and neither until the covering is opened and the cat is revealed. If Pitou is even wearing clothes at all.
Ack! Too many fingers! That's not Pitou. The claws are an obvious charm point.
Now, do correct me if I'm getting my locations mixed up, but NGL didn't allow modern clothes and materials right? So, how is it the other Ants got all their clothes and jewelry? I know they're fast and some can fly, but weren't they all stuck with the Queen till the king was born? I forget if they changed locations honestly.
This isn't like a Crona debate, Pitou was depicted more androgynously a male in the manga, but the anime definitely added/accentuated womanly curves in the design
Only if you're a fucking faggot.
Otherwise, Pitou's a sexy ass catgirl.
Hm, never noticed
Zazan's hidden hatsu, wardrobe conjuration
The underground/criminal element of NGL, under Gyro's conrol had lots of modern things including clothes, guns and cellphones. Remember that the Ants were right there next to his base. It was one of the first places they hit.
I think that's just Togashi using the rule of cool. That's just the way I treat fiction I guess. Who knows, with the way Togashi thinks, maybe he did create an elaborate explanation that he never published. But he probably didn't. HxH is full of all sorts of incongruities if you look hard enough.
Like Pitou's personality. I think it was originally meant to be far more evil, with all that talk about about that malicious aura. A few years later, Togashi just decided that it would be cool to present a lot of the action from Pitou's point of view and that he didn't really want the personality to be too creepy. Hence Pitou's later Shoujo face.
Queen's page in the wiki says they were born with clothes, but that sounds odd
Hnng. Too kawaii man.
True, but I thought they wore uniforms. But, I'll just accept it as is.
>Too many fingers! That's not Pitou.
This always bugs me really. Hisoka's hair is always down, Illumi's eyes aren't cat like and creepy, and Pakunoda never has her proper nose.
>Illumi's eyes aren't cat like and creepy
Too bad we'll never see him fight someone on his level. Hopefully Sailor Moon wife will take over some day and go off Togashi's scribbles while he plays Dragon Quest until death.
Anybody translate these? They look adorable. The daily lives of a lovely couple.
With those scribbles he's passed off in the past, I'm convinced that he enjoys writing far more than drawing. He really is a better writer than an illustrator. He should just write, and let someone else do the visuals, whether his wife, Madhouse, or whoever. Or go the light novel route.
pitou a shit
Greed Island and Ants are probably the result of him doing more thinking than anything hence the heavy narrative and art. York New must have been easiest to write since most of the art has that distinct style of his and I think it actually had backgrounds on pages.
Go to bed Gon you're twelve
There isn't nearly enough guro art of this series as there should be aside from Hisoka killing people and Pitou and Pokkle.
I actually love the line work on that page. He can draw well when he wants to. But the lack of effort on some of his stuff is extreme. And drawing uses a totally different part of the brain from writing a story, so he could have been thinking things through while he filled in the artwork. There's something else going on. Maybe it's something totally unrelated to manga. A family situation? Anxiety attacks? Run-ins with organized crime? Domestic dispute? Disagreements with the editors?
I'm going to say thinking of things. See Delicious Turkey. I mean, check out Paku's original design too. Also, excuse the MangaTank. It's easier to just go through an entire chapter on 1 page rather than sift through over a dozen folders.
I think that if Togashi went all out and kept his more realistic style, it would go into way darker territory. I've never seen the art for Level E but I've heard it get's pretty realistic.
You know....why dosn't someone just get a laser pointer and use that to distract Pitou?
I wish. People seldom use the animal attributes to mess with the enemy unless it's a comedy. Imagine if Grimmjow was defeated because Ichigo just ran off to get some catnip and threw it in his face.
>Imagine if Grimmjow was defeated because Ichigo just ran off to get some catnip and threw it in his face.
I'd love to see that just to see Grimmjow's "...really?" reaction.
But seriously though. Pitou a cute.
my final ripple
Excellent. You've done this dead thread a great service. Now all that's left is the actual episode thread.
what's release day?
Tomorrow I believe.
In 6 hours I think.
