Now you've done it! Fucking chimeras.
fun, virtual games, treasure hunting, gotta catch them all, training, good old VA.
>this goddamn arc
mutaton, extermination, child murder, regular murder, drugs, tragic backstory, disgusting enemies, actual characters dying for real left and right and shit getting more and more real with every minute.
It's good that mood is more serious, but my Ponzu! Those bastards.
I have no idea what this is about
And i dunno if I want to know
Just some spoilers from HxH.
Its just a childeren show calm down
I guess the best is yet to come?
Oh it's HxH, I didn't even see that. Well what the fuck did you expect? I read the manga to this when i was babby eight-grader and found the first twenty or so volumes in the city library, it's Gorefest McEdgemeister. Inb4 you call me out on >edgy, I really did think it was gratuitously violent without reason, especially when the author purposefully made the MC's into kids.
The chimaera ant arc feels like a completely different manga, the tone is nothing like the earlier arcs. The HxH world was always about survival of the fittest and it had some pretty dark moments and themes, but then they introduce a race of super powerful beings whose motive is to devour all humans that veteran hunters who are pretty much the best humanity has to offer when it comes to fighting have trouble fighting with even though most of them are less than three months old.
It keeps happening.
When it comes to people killing each other, HxH draws pretty obvious parallels between the survival of the fittest and strong exploiting the weak in a wilderness and in human society, so it's definitely not mindless gore.
The characters just do what's natural to them, just like animals killing for food or self-preservation. You wouldn't call nature documentaries edgy just because they show mutilation, right? That is normal in reality, and in HxH, the hunter system is similarly brutal to nature.
Gon is a kid because that makes him pure and raw, and that fits the themes of HxH. And Killua is a special case who also works as great character to complement Gon and vice versa.
I think that concept itself is pretty damn iffy, especially when placed so obviously in the middle of a more or less normal human society. I mean, there's still people who just picked up a gun around, like the yakuza and security forces who got slaughtered in that early op when, fuck, it's been a while, when they hunters went to get those funny purple eyes or something. The fuck do they think they are doing? They are dead meat anyway as soon as any of the ten zillion hunters only roughly looks into their direction.
It's all kinds of half-baked, this system. If it was really survival of the fittest (like it is IRL, I agree there) the security forces and hell, the armies of this world would be entirely staffed by hunters, just under a different name and organized into proper structures.
It's literally a kids' comic, so the relations between everything are simplified and the focus is on select specific elements.
Also, all hunters act independently in their own self-interest, and they are a very select elite.
The Phantom Troupe guys who massacred the yakuza weren't hunters, they are some kind of weird Robin Hood-type of group of thieves. It's the same problem either way though, the power levels are pretty overblown (and I think their role in the story is pretty weak).
>people getting the shit slain out of each other at every corner
You lose the right to call "it's just for kids" when you use this sort of mature thing as an element so front and center. When you can be that "mature", you need to write mature enough too or it's just shit that you are producing and you meet the "edgy" criteria quite excellently.
And bullshit all hunters act this or that way. I think about these stories hard enough and I expect some internal consistency. I can't see that Hunters are something that just came around in the last ten years so I imagine that back in the day of feudal lords and kings and shit like that there were Hunters around too, or at least they had the same powers. Who do you think would have been the kings? A normalfag? Don't make me laugh.
Again, internal consistency. It seems like this background was slapped together in a matter of minutes with no looking back. If you take "survival of the fittest" as your main theme at least fucking play it to the hilt, goddamn it, don't throw it around as a buzzword and use it whenever you want, leaving it away whenever you don't. I'd expect the societies on this world to fucking REVOLVE around hunters / people with their powers, I'd expect them to be nobility, or superstars. Think Zero no Tsukaima, mages as nobility and royalty.
HxH is the only good show left, sadly.
the hunters association is a private organization much like the thieves guild or the companions from skyrim
and there "powers" are called nen everybody has nen every living thing has nen
if you can use it or not depends on if you have been trained to use it or special living conditions when you were growing up
gon knew how to do zetsu to conceal his presence long before he ever learned nen because he grew up in the mountains on an island
Not that guy but:
High production values, tight plot, engaging and interesting characters, thought-out world.
>nice animation for a longrun show, not a single QUALITY.
>the music is fine most of the time but i still prefer the 99 anime in this point
>just like a 10% of censure
>good character development
>nice artwork for the manga AND the anime
>not filled with cleavegy clothes tearing girlfights to compensate for the lack of any of the previous points
if you don't like hxh don't watch it
>if you don't like hxh don't watch it
>actually saying this
Not that I disagree with your points but that makes you look like a retard.
>not a single QUALITY
>in 115 episodes
>actual animation is glorious, fights are smooths and dynamic, and THAT SMOKE
how is telling somebody that if they don't like watching something then they shouldn't watch it retarded?
wouldn't it be retarded to watch something you don't like watching? that's like saying your not gay and hate gay porn but you get butt fucked by an old fat guy while you watch gay porn
your logic is flawed anon and you have nothing intelligent to say
If someone is watching something and stops liking it for some reason that means there are things he disagrees about in there. Telling that person to shut up and get out may end up slamming the door into the face of valid criticisms of a show you like but are unwilling to see criticisms about.
In short , it makes you look like one of those tunnel-vision normalfags. Which is not what you want to look like.
So, what do you think is gonna happen whenever they eventually catch up to the manga? Will Togashi stop being lazy? Or will they continue on with filler?
Rumour has it he's currently the one in charge of the anime, and the anime team will simply continue on where the manga left off.
I hope he himself just gave them some sort of further plot outline or wrote a filler/ending. I can only hope, really.
10/10 would watch
holy fuck really?
Do you have any believable source or it's just baseless rumors?
im not telling anybody to shut up and get out and I have no problem hearing criticism about the things I like im just questioning how its logical to continue to watch something you don't like
Of course. I originally heard the rumour on this board ;_;.
Also this link: www.animenewsnetwork.com/anime/hunter-x-hunter-rumours-abrewing
Shhhhh, no tears only dreams now OP.
>armies of the world
Hunters are rare. Netero said they'd often go for ten years without minting new ones, and even people who can simply use nen are referred to as "Rare Humans," a delicacy with the aura of a thousand normal ones, by the chimera ants. Nen-users, alone, are basically psychics and genetic freaks, but you have to be one in order to pass the final hunter exam. Normal people don't even know that nen's a thing.
What's not good about it?
>mfw the last 5 episodes could have been done in half of one.
Just a kids show about cute girls being hunted down, shot with a hand gun 50 times and eaten.
if they are gonna continue where the manga left off then we already kinda know where its gonna go
you guys remember the dark continent or something like that that ging was telling gon about when he climbed the world tree? and that guy claiming to be the son of the late head of the hunters association wanting to go there?
ya that's probly where that's headed but I hope they show more of that nen wielding fox bear from the 1999 series
The one that always bugged me was in a world where you have modern communication (cellphones and the internet) how do you keep nen a secret?
You ever went so mad you aged 15 years just to punch somebody harder?
I'd say it's very likely going to end. If you've read the manga you would know chapter 339 is a pretty good stopping point story wise. Kinda like how the old version stopped right at Gon and Kaito's meeting.
Yfw this is canon
You can't access the hunter network.
>time control nen
>person pisses you off
>train for 15 years nonstop
>punch the shit out of them
It would pretty easy for them to end the series where the manga is currently.
I know it's not true, but please, Togashi. It's not hard. It's easier that drawing your scribbles, even I could do it. Just tell them where the fuck to take your story and not fuck it up. It can be done in half an hour break between DQ sessions a week, Jesus Christ.
Still that's not some shit you can hide. Like one guy wouldn't finally gain a hatsu and show it off like crazy.
people who know about nen are on their /x/ and are laughed out from other boards.
Togashi doesn't need to draw. For fucks sake he can just draw stick figures as long as the narration and dialogues are there, it would still be good.
How much dragon quest can one man play? I've played like 4 and I feel my life's quote has been met.
idk man hxh is a damn good series I don't think they would stop right at what looks like a new arc
I completed one in total and it was fun but I'm not engaging another one for now. But you know how it is, once you add an MMO to the RPG, all rules and sanity go out of the window.
What can they do when there's no material to animate?
people with nen are considered freaks and psychics people already know about them its just not common knowledge of how they do it
Togashi should just do it OPM style and then re-draw it in the future.
what happen to gensuru?
sasuga hiatus x hiatus fanboy
but he was doing that
Even more extreme.
To get nen you need to train hard and grow over yourself. How many people do you know that achieve this task? There are almost none of this kind of people because it's impossible to overcome yourself, at least I never heard of a case like that outside fiction.
idk animate more like how they can do filler episodes except it would be an entire arc continueing where the anime left off? or maybe the artist will stop being lazy and do some rough sketches for the anime to continue on like that dark continent thing
Please, if the result was superpowers people would certainly try.
>the artist will stop being lazy
what if we pay him with women?
Let's assume most people in HxH are normal people like in our world.
They will never get Nen, it doesn't matter how hard they train. Maybe they tried but stopped believing in it when they failed.
I think only blood sacrifices will have some effect.
Then we come back to having modern information, something like that might not be possible for everyone but there's no way I can believe everyone doesn't know about it.
>show it off
Most people can't even see Nen.
that's because they don't know how to use nen in order to see it you have to know how to use gyo
and it wouldn't be that hard to learn nen you just have to have someone who knows how to do it teach you
or train hard enough and learn it yourself
hell a majority of the people from meteor city could use nen
Well look at lucid dreaming, meditation, activating photorealistic memory and other things that are not so popular because they're either too hard to achieve or people just don't believe in them. It's fairly realistic that such a fairy tail power like Nen would be ignored by common people.
>yfw those past episode have totaled about 10 minuets in their world
Last episode was like 20 seconds in their world.
Ponzu a shit.
Powered-up Killua antics never.
New arc never.
>lucid dreaming, meditation, activating photorealistic memory
True, that goes with what you were saying earlier if people can't realistically achieve it they'll ignore it. The shit that can be done with nen is too crazy to be ignored or effectively hidden, like the whole tower of heaven arc. Everyone watching Hisoka's fights on TV would ask what the hell just happened.
or it could be known about but people ignore it because it takes years of training
in the tower of heaven it was said that the camera guy at the arena could make the nen appear onscreen
JJBA > HxH
Hunter x Hunter is a different kind of world. Their scale of unbelievable shit is far bigger than ours. Just look at the monster like animals and insects or the whole hunter organization that stands above everything else. People living in such a world will keep up with more bullshit than people in our boring world.
Hunter X Hunter is a gateway anime of the worst kind.
this is bait
People with martial arts mastery are already pretty damn impressive and how many people try?
> Leorio never.
Is it safe to assume he's gone for good?
>I don't know what the hell am I talking about but I'll say it anyway
>activating photorealistic memory
That's a thing? Heard about other ones but what, are there exercises that make you into a savant now? That'd be cool as fuck.
It's the exact moment Togashi lost his original vision.
His motivation went to shit also, not that it was too high before.
It can be taught, with hard training, just like in shounens. It's a real thing.
I more interested in remembering everything. It's called "hypermnesia" of something. How I wish it could be taught.
What was the original vision? "I gotta find my dad"?
When is HxH last mission out? Did I miss it?
Phantom Troupe never.
Ging doing something never.
Hisoka resolution never.
And Zodiacs doing something relevant never, probably.
An action adventure with some darker themes.
So I've been meaning to watch the series for a long time, but it just keeps sitting on my backlog (not really into shounen).
There's also this friend of mine who keeps pushing me into watching it, so the other day he made watch one of latest episodes.
>Surfing cat trying to kill guy some guy with big lungs
I got no idea what the fuck is going, not sure if I like it either, but certainly not what I remember the series being about. Is it really this much of a clusterfuck? Is it really worth watching that many episodes?
>I got no idea what the fuck is going,
That's why you should watch it from the beginning.
That's what I plan, the older series look better IMO and I'll probably just stick with it. But what about the new series? It does seem a little like a clusterfuck.
I like it because it seems so childish and fun, like the video game arc where it seemed to be all fun and games. Then by the end the MC has literally had limbs destroyed and mangled.
Look the new one, its just a remake anyway, nothing changed.
Well, what can you do. He was just a placeholder for reader to associate with and to explain the world. He got his hunter licence by pure luck, just by staying alive. He's a normalfag who doesn't even know that nen exists. An interesting character but there's no use for him now.
Except it looks terrible now.
>made 12 years later
that's because nothing happen in the last episode, shit should get serious soon enough
I was talking the remake shithead.
There is no need to insult each other, friend.
ponzu best girl
right above bisci
This scene isn't explicit and neither is the scene with the chimera eating her. You don't see anything. And yet we know an American action cartoon would NEVER show this at all. Just tell a business exec that a little girl is killed and you will be fired before you get to the part of dying by repeated gun shots.
I'm sorry, asshole
But there's some new things going on, right?
That's what I've been told at least (remake+new shit).
But he does know Nen, he's an Emitter. He could make a great fighter, not mention he's well-versed in medicine, which he could use in combat. Being a skilled haggler and con man means he would probably read opponents easily, fitting in well with the direction Togashi has taken the battles in during the last couple of arcs. He wouldn't be necessary per se in the Dark Continent arc, but then, why not include him? The four original characters had chemistry, it would be great to have them working together again.
yes Leorio is my waifu, shut up
the first serie stopped after greed island, the new serie did a remake, then keep animated the after-greed island arc (chimera ant). So yeah, it's really good and you should watch it.
Old one stopped at the end of Greed Island, new continues after that.
From what I understood, remake part ends on ~ep77.
when is it shown he has emitter skills?
last i remember he was cheating people to get them money to get greed island
Yes, but the remake was very well done, you should watch it, trust.
except that he knew about nen halfway through the phantom troupe arc and had hatsu by the end of the chimera ant arc
he punches ging in the face through a table from all the way across a room
Chairman Arc. Don't tell me you haven't read the manga anon
watching Hunter x Edgy
expecting anything else.
Can I expect good gore?
Ive been watching the anime ;_;
not really you see some characters get killed off but nothing super gory
Read the manga dummy. It's only 2 or 3 volumes ahead anyway
At this point he might just wait for it. Seeing Leorio do all those things animated will be glorious.
Hunter X Hunter is such an unoriginal piece of shit shonen. With the only exception of it's battle-system, everything is a "tribute" to Dragonballz.
Cell=Mereum. This is obvious and Togashi admitted it
Gon=Goku. Same first 2 letters, both naive as fuck characters. Become Super-Sayan due to a friend dying. Signature move has the same exact stance (janken and Kamehhameha Wave)
Killua=Vegeta. 2nd most powerful, same stupid reserved-respect for MC. Come from a long-line of elite family warriors. Too much of a closet homosexual to admit they would suck MC's dick if asked to.
Ging=Bardock. Never-seen father figure who predicts the exact futures of their respective sons through ass-pulls
Leorio=Krillin. Weak character whose only use past the first arc is verbal support of MC (GAMBARE GON/GOKU!!!)
For fuck's sake, even Zeno Zoldyck's special attack is summoning shenlong. Why does this series get so much praise for such blatant plagiarism?
I must've missed something. Why are they saving her? She and her subordinates slaughtered and ate hundreds of people every day. Is she really worth saving? Am I supposed to sympathize with her?
I never watched or read DBZ. Maybe that's why.
its because the eagle boy asked them to
hell yeah leorio best character from the start
and the baby for some reason turned out to be kaito
I know. Would they save any mass-murderer if some guy asked them?
The manga looks like shit though.
because they want to know how to kill the king, but it not works.. at least the queen gives his name.
SnK looks worse and people are all over it.
The tankobon are "fixed", they don't look like scribbles made on the back of a cocktail napkin.
Kid's show, everyne.
I remember you all posting that scorpion woman with "kid's show" too.
Showing is only forbidden in clapistan.
you forgot human trading and prostitution anon
I wonder if Madhouse will do a long slow panning over Gon-san's hair.
>slow death from radiation poisoning
That's not even getting into the whole being-eaten-and-becoming-a-monster stuff.
I've yet to see all that.
thanks, I just made it
Why Kurapika isn't a girl?
Nottu dissu shito agen.
Why isn't Pitou a dude in the animu?
She's supposed to be a dude?
Next episode's going to be so good.
Damn, this bitch is crazy.
"All ants except for Queen are male" in canon in the Magno
Well shit. Maybe she's special? Royal family and all.
I thought they said that in the anime too.
Last bump with disturbing shit. This show, man.
How useless are those fucking bees? What a shit power.
anyone is very aware of the female VA voicing kids?
its for me the first time i notice a female VA
the VA for killua is probably a rookie and she is not good doing kids
he sounds like sayaka
The character songs featuring Gon and Killua really don't sound anything like them from the show, at least to me
They really just sound like the girl VA's singing, it's not bad singing but it doesn't sound like the characters either
American cartoons wouldn't because cartoons in America are for children. American media though would.
> VA for killua is probably a rookie
You're in for a surprise, anon.
early episodes with Killua he sounds a little too high pitched to me, but he got better pretty fast
After this, I would have voted for Leorio too
I seriously thought he was a girl until like halfway through the Genei Ryodan arc. The cross dressing scene didn't help and the translation was vague as fuck. I'm reasonably certain they used 'she' when referring to him on more than on occasion.
But we got to listen to "departure" 115 fucking times!!!
And it's not even good.
Wanting a new OP but it is never going to happen. It's time to commit.
I forgot saving different Sudokus for you guys whenever I felt like committing. Hop to it.
You know you can smile again.
Just reminds me of this all the time now.
When I first saw it I thought it's just some war dude with PTSD in military helmet, or something. Then I thought that the screencap is taken while some major plot twist or point is occurring. I never expected it to be just a split second moment.
Joke's on you, I always skip the openings.
I skip the Hunter one now. But the fact that it's BEEN on for 115 episodes itself is horrifying, in my opinion.
but pitou is a dude pitou is just catboy and a sexy trap and so is kurapika id fuck them both
Mori's team is doing episode 116 right? It's going to be glorious.
You sick, twisted deviant.
Dr. Blythe = female
Terpsichora = female
Mother cat = female
Kimono in trading cards = female
hell ya id fuck pitou id even make him give me a tail job with that cat tail of his
>Kimono in trading cards
A kimono doesn't make someone female, anon.
I remember when I used to think they would change the opening after 26 episodes. How naive I was.
I'm just listing all the indicators. Make of that what you will.
Please don't tell me that she's a dude too.
Fucking this. What the fuck? I mean it's like they were unnecessarily given tremendous powers even though they were, as you said, born 3 or so months ago. I thought they wouldn't be so difficult to fight. I was like, after everything Gon and Killua have fought, they can't possibly have difficulty fighting ants. I was so wrong.
I'll list the male indicators as well.
Boku = male
One use of "kare" in one data book that came out early in the arc = male
See, it's four against two. Female side is winning.
That's a man,. baby.
terpsichora and dr.blythe are nen abilities and the tradeing cards are probly not canon to the manga it has been said before that all born chimera ants are male
although neferpitous gender is never confirmed
I am speechless.
True. But then, why are all of Pitou's nen abilities embodied as female?
Also, trust what Killua sees. He's got great intuition.
idk maybe hes just a gender confused catboy?
Obviously the cat has a pussy
woops, was supposed to reply to >>101748321 , >>101747975 , >>101747975 , >>101747921 , >>101747822
Please, follow the instructions on this pic >>101746941
I'd be following my own instructions
Actually, to be fair, there's one more male indicator I forgot about. One of Togashi's sources is this. And this Pitou was male.
Plus I've been waiting ages to post that.
Oh wow, nice, anon. You're terrible pun doesn't seem so terrible anymore.
Thank you, /a/non. I'll just go back to lurking now. Although, I believe Pitou is a girl, namely because she's feminine in the anime. And wouldn't the mangaka have decided how they wanted them to be portrayed? Or did the animators try to cash in on making her look and sound female?
I guess you could really say the same about a lot of characters in anime though, really.
Looks feminine to me.
to me it looks like she has a chest, albeit a small one. Plus she's got a feminine voice.
yes. he is.
Notice the hind legs. Pitou's actual legs aren't shaped like that. So chances are that this is just a mental image that the cat has of itself.
It's a ribcage.
besides you guys know youd fuck pitou with his little girl cock flopping up against his stomach every time you thrust into him while he looks over his shoulder at you with a dopey grin on his face and all you can hear is him panting and moaning when you pull on his tail his cock flopping around
You should've said "chest muscles", ribcage ends lower. And that's clearly small tittays,
Girl or boy, wanting to fuck pitou is sick. You damn freak.
lol shutup anon youd fuck him too
somebody should write a doujin that pitou gets fucked by gon when he ages 15 years
or about him traping at a maid café
This means jack shit, it's a symbolic silhouette. Why the fuck do people think it means anything
I dont care about fetishes, but that post just make you sound like a fucking retard, refrain from posting stupid shit like this in the future.
I'd dump catbug pics but this thread is too far along, oh well
>stop likeing the things I don't like
>stop posting the things I don't post about
that's what you seem like right now anon
MOAR CATBOY PICS
> >stop likeing the things I don't like

Not that guy but, I've only heard the first excuse before. The second was a rather shallow comeback for saying stupid things.
if I start I'm not going to want to stop, and I don't want to start in a thread 200 posts in. So enjoy one for the road, and stop being a faggot
That wasnt even his nen power, she just trained bees for fun, and had a bee nest in his hat.
>in his hat
You're slipping, anon.
