I am now convinced this is the best shounen anime ever.

Good for you.

thanks someone mentioned it, the last 3-4 episodes were 70% the narrator explaining what is happening and what they are feeling

So far I'm fucking loving this arc. I hope they do an anime-original ending.

>Narrator explains all the important details and inner workings of the characters to flesh out the situation
>But narrator does not explain why Pitou was crying in the anime, only in the manga
>Cue hundreds of retards asking why Pitou was crying after the last episode
This is why the narrator is necessary.

Why? The story will end at the point the manga is at now, that's really a perfect ending for the series.
>>

It shouldn't be this bad once everyone goes off to do their own things.
It just that no one really says a whole lot during the initial invasion.

When is the fight with Netero probably going to happen? I'll try watching the anime for that.

you can understand the emotions in the manga better,in the event that finish this arc I cry like a sassy girl no mather how many times I read it.
I got the feeling that on the anime it will not have the same impact.

but the action and the "design" is better on the anime, clearly because the manga was just a manuscript using a rolerpen
>>
I came to that conclusion during the York Shin Arc (best shonen arc until Chimera Ant, at minimum, tied with it). The fact that it then follows it up with the Chimera and Election Arcs just solidified it. Past York Shin the series just became better and better. Even great shonen like Kenshin are lucky to get even one god-tier arc. Hunter x Hunter has three. Its plotting and characterization are also something else; Hunter x Hunter is the only battle shonen I know of that can pull off a great arc without the inclusion of a single real fight scene (Zoldyck and Election). Never thought I'd ever again enjoy following a shonen, and this is the first time I have since One Piece was at is peak with the CP9.
>>
I just love so many God damn characters in this anime/manga. I will admit, the 2011 version was pretty bad at first, but when it fixed itself, it REALLY fixed itself.
>>
>>100759434
Whatever you do, read the manga at one point. You'll be missing a lot of stuff if you don't do it.
>>
>>100760035

The only female in an ant colony is the queen. The workers are either males or asexual. Genetically speaking, ants like Pitou or Zazan got their feminin looks from human genes. But that is all.

At best they are transexual.
>>
>>100764901
Oh boy, here we go again.
>>
>>100757067
What's wrong with you?
>>
>>100767913
Actually 99% of an ant colony is composed of sterile females, every 1000 ants or so a male is born that goes off to mate with a fertile female.
At most chimera ants are like angels, they're genderless.
>>
I've been following the Manga since it premiered in shonen jump when I was a little shit and I find that the Manga, like most in comparison to their anime counterparts , was a far more rich and rewarding experience. By skipping showing God's beginnings and his role model/father figuire relationship with kaito it doesn't hurt nearly as bad when all this ant shit goes down. but the Manga also looked like shit in a lot of points I was a kid when I read it so I never really made notice and was just engulfed by the story but looking back now it's total shit, but I would recommend the Manga to anyone. So much shit wasn't expressed as well as it should have been in anime like seeing shit like hisokas bloodlusting facial expressions and pitou poking at pokkles brain

tl;dr Manga looks like a shit but you should read it if you like the anime

This manga is a convoluted piece of shit aimed at edgy 12 year-olds that think the main character is deep and interesting.

The writer doesn't know where he is going with the story half the time. Enjoys walls of text on a medium where drawings are supposed to explain things.

Even the writer hates it because he never actually wants to work on it causing constant hiatus.

Wait, seriously? People didn't understand it?

That was the first time the King ever, EVER showed any sort of gratitude or reliance. He told Pitou he was counting on them. Receiving dependence from your superior, especially in the form of the only one you live to serve, is the greatest joy they could ever hope to receive, coupled with the fear and desperation that accompanies not wanting to fail that person that just put their faith in you for the first time, the person who you you respect and cherish more than anything else.

How did people not understand that?

The King is the only one of the four big CA's that has any true humanity. Each Guard has their own shade of humanity but their most obvious feature is their devotion. They're not exactly 3-dimensional characters, unlike the King.

Dark Continent? Kurapika's resolution? Not every arc is about Gon. The Yorkshin arc was more about Kurapika than it was about Gon, so it feels very underwhelming for his conflict with the troupe to not be resolved. Loose ends and whatnot.

He got his eyes, who cares anymore. Faggot doesnt even answer his phone.

Kurapika is really as resolved as he's going to get. The Troupe seems to have all but forgotten him and he's not really in any position to go after them. They're essentially at a stalemate. There's no tension there to be resolved anymore.

No anon. I think it was settled that everyone is 50/50 on it. 99 for atmosphere, Kurapika, filler and best music, 99 for quality, staying true to the source, and glorious Killua. Personally, I'd rather re-watch 99 as I have done before. But there are many others who'd enjoy 2011 just the same.

Thats not how real ants work, 0/10 see me after class.
>>
>>100787633
>Ant society is divided into several castes, including workers, soldiers, drones and queens. Workers and soldiers are flightless females that take care of the colony. Drones, which develop from unfertilized eggs, are winged males born with the sole purpose of procreation. Breeding females can also fly — they become queens after mating, breaking off their wings and starting a new colony (or joining a multi-queen colony).

Essentially the point is, Kite was the one who made Gon want to become a Hunter, by telling him things about his dad. And Gon, well...he has a very skewed view on morality.
>>
>>100807829
why in the name of all that is holy would they omit something so important from, what will very likely be, the last thing anyone gets out of Hunter x Hunter
>>
>>100808145
If I had to guess, they could throw it in there just before Gon goes Superman-mode, while he's deep in thought, blaming himself and remembering good memories of Kite (thus increasing his feeling of loss, and perhaps the impact on the viewer).

But that's a wild guess, after all.

>>100778792
Pretty much how I feel, for the exact same reasons mentioned, though I actually prefer the music in 2011, and the art in 1999. The darker color palate fits the show more and I vastly prefer cel, over digital animation; too bad the former is a long dead art, as anime from the 90s has always appeared the most pleasing to me aesthetically. Music-wise, though, it's a win in 2011's favor, at least from Chimera Ant onward. Kingdom of Predators, Hegemony of the Food Chain, Legend of the Martial Artists, Understanding, Reason (Instrumental), and To Give a Marionette Life are all god-tier tracks from 2011. With the 1999 anime, only the main theme and daidan-en-no-tatakai (Hisoka vs Gon music) really stand out to me as being on that level.

Knuckle was almost unscathed in the chimaera ant arc. Surprisingly, he really was that strong.
>>
>>100822784
More like he was just fortunate. If it weren't for Meleron there would have to be a completely different turn in stealth and attack.
>>
>>100822784

Most of that was because he was hiding behind God's Accomplice. If he took a direct hit from Youpi, even with a 10K APR buffer, that would have been an instant kill.

The Royal Guards were fuck strong. And Gon 2HKO Pitou, and 1HKO Zombie Terpsichora which was even stronger after it came back to life.
>>
>>100823009
>>100823103
Even when he showed himself, he can still manage to fight Youpi without taking hits. Though he was saved by Killua in the end. Gon-san is a different kind of beast altogether.
>>
>>100801863
looks dudish to me.
>>
>>100823163

The only way the Hunter Team stood a chance at defeating Yupi was for Knuckle to bankrupt him. The manga clearly shows Shoot and Morel doing almost no damage to him, and Knuckle's best punches only shove Yupi without pain. Killua's lightning was more disruptive than deadly. Knuckle avoided direct hits, but if he didn't bankrupt Yupi most likely the entire team would have been wiped out. Even if they had Ikalgo, Palm, Welfin and Bolster helping them out.

Gon-san actually reached the King's level, maybe even stronger. Gon's first kick threw her WAY up high. The King's tail bitchslap only bruised Pitou and he said he had the intention of killing her back then although we can't be sure if he was being serious.

>>100823725
There's killing her and then there's wanting her atoms destroyed. The King was probably using the absolute minimum force he thought would kill her.

>>
>>100824171
They added however much aura he put into the punch onto the debt, but in return the punch dealt no physical damage. Or at least very very little. Knuckle explains it when he fights Gon. Also if an enemy has potclean and they hit Knuckle, the same applies to them and Knuckle doesn't take damage until the debt is payed off.

Was Gon implying that Killua masturbates to him?
>>
>>100820058
Dat character development. Watching Killua play good cop to Gon's bad cop was so surreal. Seeing everything Gon ended up seeing hardened him up from the innocent little kid he originally was, but Killua was already fucked up from the beginning, so his general response to being surrounded by friends instead of being forced to kill people on a regular basis was actually to become lighter and softer. By the end, Killua's the one sparing his enemies and babysitting his littler sister, while Gon is taking crippled, blind girls hostage.
>>
I'm rereading Election arc. Shit's so fucking gold.
>>
>>100829064
He was already heading in that direction by the time he crushed that armadillo chimera ant alive. Beginning of series Gon would never have done that. Kite commented on how worrying it was that he wouldn't kill someone if they had people they cared about, but by Pitou who had obviously moved on from that as well. As far as what he said to Killua, Gon had long started becoming more and more of an asshole to him as the arc went on.

Durr, im retarded, that is from the previous episode to Gyro's past episode. Nevertheless, Welfin goes with Bizef to Meteor City to find Gyro at the end of this arc.

Also these little things are a major things for me when it comes to like series, things you have to remember from way long ago, and when you realize, it feels cool.

We can only speculate since the most weve seen of him fighting someone else with it was at the begining of York New with that one conjurer. But given that he can catch bullets with it Im sure he'd be just fine in any fight with someone who can move just as fast.

That one female Chef from the Hunter exams.

I'd eat Sushi off of her naked body.

You mean specifically 'hunter' or any character? In the latter case Shizuku is my first choice, but if it's the former then probably Biscuit. At least I think she was a hunter, but I'm not sure.

Yes, a Gem/Jewel Hunter.

I love Togasi's girls. Except Keiko. They're all so marry-able. Shizuku might forget you though. I think she's actually retarded or something.

I actually enjoy the narration. It beats the cliche in shonens where they always announce what they did, why they did it, and how it works. Like that's not how it works in battle, so it's better for a 3rd party narrator to explain things. Makes it more realistic

Wrong. For the last fucking time there's only one female ant in the colony at a time. The queen. When the old one was dying, the new queen was born. All your ant waifus have gigantic raging cocks. Get over it.

But they dont. They take the form based off what the Queen consumed. Zazan is a prime example since she has insect male attributes. She can breed with any female, but she cant be impregnated.

Based Togashi. No one ever reveals their attacks or explains them unless its required like Chrollo's. Gon is just a kid and calls his attacks, everyone calls him out on it.
