So I never really read/watched Hunter x Hunter (although I wanted to).

I have a little brother who is watching the 2011 version (he streams it).

Today I see him curled and crying, saying he does not want to watch Hunter x Hunter.

So i watched the episode he was on.

Seriously....what he fuck.
Is this really a shounen?
Girl gets shot in the head multiple times and then eaten while the dude laughs?

Beat your brother for being a pussy.
>>
>>102299774
It's typical shounen, but caters to fujoshi too.
These are the two main target audience for the show.
>>
You're brother sounds like a big girl's blouse, you should dick the pussy out of him.
>>
Your brother is a huge pussy. And excessive violence is nothing new in shounen.
>>

I'd beat his brother's pussy, if you know what I mean.

A lot of battle shounens have darker arcs, you'd probably have a hard time finding one that doesn't.

Stick to american kids shows if you don't want to provoke any upsetting emotions.

To be fair, you should have expected shit like this when one of the main characters (Killua) is an assassin and rips out the heart of a man in a fight and kills him.

I dropped that shit so hard when they killed off Ponzu though. Talk about shitty writing.

Shōnen, shonen, or shounen manga (少年漫画 shōnen manga?) is manga marketed to a male audience aged roughly 10 and up

I've only been reading the manga, and I'm not nearly caught up, but there are so many deaths in the material preceding this that it makes no sense for THIS to be the thing that pushes your brother over the edge. Just tell him to get over it.

I actually can't believe there is no information about Togashi at all in more than 2 years. There's gotta be some insane HxH nip fan around there that found out something.
>>
>>102300584

This, there was gruesome shit happening long before this episode. Still, the ants arc does kick it into another gear.

Ponzu's death did surprise me though, felt like the kind of character that would be important later on.

Mangaka are surprisingly good at staying hidden. Reminds me of the Saki mangaka - even now, almost nothing's known about Ritz.

I dropped HxH a long time ago and thought about picking it up when it finishes, but this is deterring me. Nothing rips at my senses like extreme body deformation, ESPECIALLY being eaten. And when it's a cute, happy-go-lucky girl like that? No, nuh-uh. Fuck that.

I dislike the ant arc because it breaks the rules previously established. The whole idea about evolution with phagogenesis is believable but doesn't warrant producing the strongest being ever, that just feels like an asspull. If humans are truly so inferior, why do the ants get so much stronger by eating humans? It feels retarded to me.

>>102302088
Well, they are rather different. And not just "rather", but pretty different. YYH had better characters and most of them got through better development, but HxH excels at something else, like the whole battle system and the way the action takes place at all. Though it's getting tiresome sometimes.

HxH has plenty of narrative, but shit art to compensate that for. Take Shigurui for example, it had close to no dialogue in it, mostly narration, but you could easily follow everything without having to read as if you're reading a book. HxH has bad art and Togashi tries to compensate that by using a lot more narrative (again, laziness).

Yes. Netero thought they all kind of resembled animals because of their style, and they loved it so much that they actually started dressing costumes fitting to the titles he gave them.
>>
>>102303270
They each have a codename associated with one of the Chinese zodiac signs, which most of them chose to match in appearance out of adoration for Netero.

Regular Ants don't gain anything by eating humans. They just do it for the taste and to fill their stomach.
The only one that gains power by eating humans is the king. When he eats someone with strong nen powers his nen powers increase aswell.

I meant when he was in the egg and was fed humans. Even if they combine the best genes from whatever they have eaten his power is still off the charts and unbelievable.

It infuriates me because it ignores the previously established fact that a nen user needs to train a long time before reaching their peak. I can understand wanting to create a scary villain, but I think it was overboard when not even one of the strongest hunters alive can scratch him.
>>
>>102306554
listen buddy the entire arc is one big Dragonball Z homage, and the king is basically Cell v2 dont question it and save yourself some time
>>
>>102306817

At least Cell in his perfect form could be touched by Trunks and Vegeta. Goku also went toe-to-toe with him for a while. Dragonball Z was always about exceeding the opponents powerlevel instead of fighting with clever strategies to overcome the power differential. Besides the appearance of the King, he and Cell doesn't have much in common.
>>
>>102306813
It has been said that some nen users use nen without knowing it like komugi on top of have great genetics not to mention I don't even think the king even use nen when was fighting netero.
>>
>>102306943
> not to mention I don't even think the king even use nen when was fighting netero

Then it's even more terrible. The only way to protect yourself against Nen was stated to be by using Ten, otherwise you would succumb. That was the whole reason Gon and Killua were trained in Nen, so they could even approach Hisoka without getting mindraped.

Look, I understand their proficiency in physical strength, I just don't understand why their Nen ability is so much stronger.
>>
>>102307520
Because they are effectively dozens of humans combined into single entities. That was kinda implied when the queen needed like 10 humans just to shit out some regular grunt. The only exception was Colt, but he seemed pretty weak too.
>>
>>102307520
To make them threatening adversaries I'd assume.

Justification lore-wise? Heck if I know.
>>
I really ought to read the manga.....
>>
>>102307520
1- Because the author wants them to have insanely strong nen
2- Because they came from the Dark Continent. A continent where humans couldn't go to for a good reason. That reason might be because the creatures there have insane nen powers.
3-It was explained in the start of the arc that only the queen and king can benefit from eating and gaining other creatures powers.
Regular ants can't gain powers by simply eating a human with a strong nen. On the other hand, if the queen eats a human with a strong nen, she'll give birth to an ant with stronger nen than the human. If the king eats that human, his nen will increase.
>>
>>102307520
>aura has the ability to enhance the strength of physical attacks or objects depending on the quantity of aura employed and an individual's aura type.
>>
>>102307631

But the king was just fed with a few somewhat proficient nen users, surely not anywhere near to amount to the kind of power he has. Same goes for the Royal Guard.

>>102307671

Oh, they are definitely threatening adversaries. But so was the Phantom Troupe, and their strength was believable.
>>
>>102306930
honestly most Shonen seem to end up with Powerlevels. They start out with the main character having some different and quirky power and uses it in cleaver ways to defeat opponents. But there's a limit to it and sooner or later you can't get any better at martial arts so it ultimately becomes who is faster and hits the hardest and the powerlevel shitfest begins

So you honestly think The King's powerlevel is believable and not just some asspull to create a threatening villain out of nowhere? Even if it was believable, it would be lazy. Hisoka was a much, much better villain.

They go from fighting some scrub Bomber in a video game to the most perfect being ever created. What's with that kind of progression?

Phagogenesis:By eating other creatures, a Chimera Ant queen can impart the characteristics of ingested creatures onto the next generation of Chimera Ants it gives birth to, as the queen can self-reproduce through food sustenance.[9]Chimera Ant soldiers do not possess this ability, although they do have the potential for reproduction through mating with other species. Her abilities in producing soldiers apparently evolve after eating humans. In the first stage, she was able to give her offspring intelligences when they are born, then later she began producing clothes to each soldier as they are born, and then later her offspring, such as the Royal Guards, were born with Nen.
