Considering picking this up, read some of the manga a few years ago, and then it went on hiatus. I hear it's on hiatus again, does the anime have enough material to keep going, or should I wait until after the author writes more to start watching?
It's pretty much the best series aired for little boys right now. I've been watching it too, up to episode 26 and I definitely recommend it.
The manga is on hiatus. It might as well be permanent; I have no hope.
Anime is on the last arc, or 2nd to last if they decide to animate the election arc.
What happens when the anime catches up to the manga? Filler or original ending? I'm fearing both, hence my apprehension to start watching.
Probably follows the manga and just ends at the same point.
Is where the manga is at now an acceptable ending?
It will just stop. Its been a 1:1 adaptation so far, even more true than most people expected. The original anime had filler, but some of it was pretty good.
Its at the beginning of a new arc, and the main character motivation of the MC's primary motivation has arguably been resolved, but thats the best you're going to get.
Acceptable in that I won't have mixed feelings about it/won't rate it down for the ending. That doesn't sound too bad though, better than some others I've seen.
I'm sure you won't, it's not like it'll be ending for a while anyway. There's ~65 chapters left to adapt and with the current pacing that could well be 40-50 more episodes.
That's actually extremely reassuring, I'll pick it up for sure now, thanks a bunch.
Oh, and whilst the first 40 or so episodes are great in their own way, they have a much more tame feel to them than later in the series, so even if it doesn't blow you away from the start just keep with it. The current arc (ep 76 onwards) is absolutely brutal and would be worth watching the rest of the series for even if it wasn't already a masterpiece.
The fact that I'm trying to ensure that a complete stranger on the internet watches this series should speak volumes about its quality.
How is it the author still has a job? From what I know of the manga industry (mostly from reading Bakuman and internet), how does ANY author get away with drawing like six chapters, then going on hiatus for a year, then coming back and drawing another few chapters, half of which are shit and don't have backgrounds?
Because it's just that popular. When it comes back it immediately shoots to the top of the popularity charts, there'd be a massive public outcry if Shueisha dropped it, in fact, they're probably forcing him to say it's on hiatus when he's probably given up on it entirely at this point.

Watch the original "darker" version, because it amplifies the moral ambiguity of the series. Not all these cutie everything-is-rainbows version
and he's living off the sailor moon money his wife has.
because Togashi is classic. and so is his wife. They're like the Pitts of manga/
Skip greed island though
Its the part when Toagshi hypes up Nen, and that its a very rare thing to master, then suddenly everyone has it. pffft.
Nen isn't that rare, anybody has the potential for it. Even Zushi was able to learn it, because he had a teacher.
I'm surprised more people in the Hunter Exam's didn't know it, but that's probably because he didn't think of it that early on in the series.
The writer is supposedly writing a new arc soon, so it's better to catch up to it now, especially since the way the manga is portrayed can be seen as a suitable end anyways.
Because he held Shonen Jump on his back with YuYu Hakusho, and Hutner x Hunter is still incredibly popular.
I'm guessing you've not watched 2011 and are basing your opinion on people on here getting flustered over butterflies instead of blood and the heart-in-a-bag from the first arc, 3 isolated incidents (I guess 4 if you count the lack of blood from Hisoka's severed arm in the Heaven's Arena arc) that didn't really do that much damage. From York Shin onwards 1999 doesn't hold a candle to 2011.
You can only say that because you've seen it, it's not the best arc but it's far from being bad enough to skip, or even bad at all.
Currently watching the 99 version and it's not really darker or more cruel than the current anime. Some stuff is censored or not shown as well. The old anime also messes with the charaterization of the MCs, especially Killua's, because it changes a lot from the manga.
>From York Shin onwards 1999 doesn't hold a candle to 2011.
1999 did York Shin better. The arc is supposed to be edgy. It worked better that way. There is no way you can tell me the scene with Kurapika and dem eyes looked better in 2011.
York Shin is the only arc that 1999 beats out 2011.
If they end it a chapter early then yes. When the manga went on Hiatus it introduced many new characters and a brand new arc.
1999 version had a lot of filler.
I've been tooting 2011's horn this thread, but I don't recall any filler in 1999 other than Gon faffing about on Whale Island for the first few episodes and the boat section of the Exam arc.
