Why is Hunter x Hunter so RAW and so REAL?

When people die you feel it.
When people cry you feel it.
When people are happy you feel it.
When people are sad you feel it.
>>
>>102173569
Because Shonen
>>
JoJo has those things as well.
>>
Hunter X Hunter is the deconstruction of the Shounen genre.
>>
>>102174198
It's a seinen disguised as a shonen.
>>
Because Togashi is like Stephen King who likes to do horrible things to little kids.

Except that Togashi is all "innocence is not what it seems" and King just likes torturing kids.
>>
I love the bromance between these two.
>>
>>102175045
But little kids aren't the only ones who suffer in HxH.

EVERYONE DOES.
>>
>>102174624
>Shoune genre
It's "battle-shounen" as a genre, shounen is a demographic
I done picked up the bait
>>
Why is HxH such an emotional roller coaster?
>>
>>102175133
This. One minute I despise the chimera ants (especially the King and Pitou) to the point where I want to see them get annhilated. The next minute, I'm completely in love with them.
>>
>>102175083
That was weak ass popcorn bait.

Hungry, anon?
>>
This show would have been so much better if killua was a girl.
>>
>>102175082
Okay I get you.

Togashi's biggest draw is that he makes lovable characters seemingly from pure sorcery. And that he puts them in situations where he asks "What'll happen now?"

That's the beauty of Togashi. The driving force behind his work is watching how his characters respond to the world he set up up for. Not wuite unlike a ruthless version of Dungeons and Dragons.
>>
Is the HxH fanbase turning into the One Piece fanbase? Glorifying and praising the shit out of the show, claiming it to be greater than it actually is? HxH is great and all, but this shit needs to stop.
>>
>>102175639
Is a plot-twist where this happens feasible? Considering the gender-ambiguity of Killua's other siblings maybe he could be a she.

I remember Gon took a bath with Killua in one or both of the animes though. I'm not sure if that's canon.
>>
>>102175639
So you could feel less gay?
>>
>babbys first animu
>>
>>102177321
Killua is a guy man.

Anybody got the Killua Shota muscle gif?
>>
>>102177321
He could pull an Alluka or Kalluto if he wanted.

You'd still be gay though.

Killua didn't deserve what he went through in the Ant Arc though. That Stockholm Syndrome.
>>
>>102178907
I don't think you know what Stockholm syndrome is.

Perhaps you meant 'realization that the child he loves isn't gay?'

There's too many tactics and fights for a female audience to handle...

And there's enough bromance(not the subtext homosexuality that autistic shitposters think of)
>>
>>102174230

I feel literally nothing for the characters until part 7.

Part 7 is a masterpiece, but before that? No fucks given at all. Just a kooky series of battles with no emotional attachment whatsoever.
>>
>>102173569
Give in to what? After 10 episodes of literally explaining every single thought process behind every single action of every single character, I'm suddenly supposed to figure out what he's referring to on my own? Fuck you, man, I haven't been paying attention.
>>
>>102176070
I swear that every single power and ability in Hunter x Hunter would be very easy to make in GURPS. That's the only tabletop system I know so I figure it's probably true for most other somewhat universal ones as well.
>>
>>102178907
>>102178967

Some have said battered-wife syndrome. Gon-obsessed.

Personally I believe that Killua just put Gon on a pedestal like he was a Saint. Alluka was an asspull but the split-up needed to happen because their relationship was reaching Sensui/Itsuki levels of fucked up. And Togashi knew it.

>Perhaps you meant 'realization that the child he loves isn't gay?'

I don't know what you're gunning for here. Togashi is LGBT friendly and so is his wife. It will never be something as simple as "Gon isn't gay."

It sure went full retard during the attack at the Ant King palace.

It was going so well but no, Togashi just wanted to end it quickly.

>Gon, the always pure and simple chara who never really seeked revenge, suddenly gets blind by revenge

>Suddenly Netero is a faggot who can't talk with his enemy too

Dammit, it was so perfect until Gon met Pitou... Well at least we got Alluka, a miracle of the universe.

You gotta take risk to make progress.
>>
>>102186630

What makes you say that? I'm serious. Please explain.

>>102186636

Dunno man, i just had the feeling that Togashi didn't really spend enough time thinking about how he wanted to continue the plot, at that time. I get the feeling he just wanted to end it quickly.
>>
>>102186561
>Gon, the always pure and simple chara who never really seeked revenge, suddenly gets blind by revenge
Because he never had a reason too before. He's definitely not a moralfag and had many early signs of psychopathy. It's not out of character.
>Power up out of nowhere
The nen restriction system is explained in Yorknew. Gon did the same thing as Kurapika, why didn't you complain then?
>>
I'm mad
so fucking mad
>>
>>102186927

>Because he never had a reason too before.

The anger he has shown in front of Pitou still felt too strong... C'mon the guy was treating assassins like friends while in front of Pitou he'd have sacrificed an innocent just to get his revenge.

>The nen restriction system is explained in Yorknew.
Yeah, i agree here, but at least Kurapika didn't use it immediately. I assumed he had to train a bit to know how to control that power. Either way, ignore this point. But what about the rest.

It really feels out of place.
>>
>>102187087
>The anger he has shown in front of Pitou still felt too strong.
I gotta ask, did you read manga?
>>
>>102186927
>signs of psychopathy
People say this but they don't know what that word means. A psychopath doesn't have emotions, he wouldn't get mad at someone getting killed. Even someone close to him.

Gon is just Fucking angry that the guy he considered an older brother was killed. It's the opposite of a psychopath.

Also, He's shown this anger MULTIPLE TIMES when it comes to his friends. When he heard what happened with Killua during the Hunter Exam, he when right up to Illumi and grabbed him so hard it left a mark. On. Fucking. Illumi. And Killua wasn't even harmed nearly as much as Kite.

Gon's always shown deviant behavior. And beyond that, after seeing what had happened to Kite, his anger has been building ever since then, and there's been plenty of instances where you can see glimpses of his suppressed rage - it wasn't surprising at all to see him explode when finally confronting the object of his rage. Other factors such as blaming himself for what happened to Kite also served to magnify his hatred.

If you know anything about the nen-system, Gon's temporary increase in strength makes sense.

Netero was obviously feeling some remorse for the King, but he couldn't act on whims; he even stated that either of the King's instincts could have won out, and it wasn't nearly worth the risk when humanity's existence was on the line.

lolnuke made sense, and drove home the point in the grandest way possible that nen isn't a counter to everything in the universe. And even though Pouf and Youpi managed to heal him, it didn't get rid of the chemical / radioactive cocktail that was destroying his body's cellular structure. None of this seemed like a rushed cop-out to me; the damn invasion / final battle was nearly 60 chapters alone, not counting the 75 chapters of prior buildup.
>>
>>102187950
>early signs of psychopathy

Most certainly. A full-fledged psycho? Not in the least.

It's normal for kids his age, he's just 12-14. Togashi did his best to make him more human so he practically acts the way you'd expect a teen to act. That and a wonky moral compass.
>>
>>102188269
Even Genthru recognized that Gon was batshit insane.
