that's why HxH is now shit though. The power levels were fine as we got to witness the progression of Killua and Gon, but now both of them are entirely obsolete - so is the rest of the world - ~5 hunters in the class of Gon's dad + magic asspull characters like Netero's Son - and the dark continent means ambush after ambush and an entirely new setting that will never make any contextual sense.

I honestly wish the series had just ended with Netero's death

The series should've ended with Gon's death, and after bug arc. Everything after that is all just an afterthought. Especially Alluka and the zodiacs.

The series was written to be concluded at the end of CA and Togashi wanted to continue it.

>>120754775
Explain how everything that happened after CA was foreshadowed in some way. Zodiacs just came into being and their whole reason for not being involved was because "Netero didn't want it". What a cop out that was, and then you have things like Alluka. Togashi basically thought to himself, "Well, I kind of made him destroy himself, I'll need a charaacter that will completely heal him back to his normal state because I don't want to see him dead"
>>
>>120754468
umm ok you're right
He honestly never did any real building, and that's the problem with the series progression: no real perspective.

>>120754605
Dude you're dumb. We've already witnessed the top class of the world and its been implied many times that they wouldn't be on par with Netero --> therein, there is no 'talent' in the association worth mentioning for the coming arc ( dark continent ) and any very strong characters have to be with the top 5 assessment ( by Netero ) of control ( that gin is part of ) or they are basically asspulls.

>>120754642
The point is there wasn't anything to be seen...

>>120754661
> killing leo
Why though? Just to make Gon angry? I personally don't believe Gon is a 'good guy' he's too personally apt for that. His senses and immortal/indominable-will will force him to make a judgement on the rest of humanity - the humanity that chooses to 'not' stand up for their ideals, to risk death for them. And Killua's influence isn't going to help that. The value he places on people diminishes with every chapter...

You get it. That's why powerlevels NEED to be set from the start.

Teleport guy didn't fight anyone and had a mental break down. I'd switch him with Knuckle.

It's hard to say how strong regular gon was before transforming. I fully believe he could have killed Pitou before he went gon-san. He was most likely on the royal guards level at that point, then after raging, ascended to kings level for overkill.

>>
>>120755158
this is why the series was intriguing because the world building was mythical and open ended. But that's why it is bad writing to simply add the entire world in when you've run out of bad guys.

There's tons of presumed magical creatures and a host of hunters keeping them in check, exploring, working for the government - those all check out and were reintrigrated in the CA arc through all the different tv news declarations, and the world government. But to call that forshadowing the ultimate ass pull ( you couldn't see the true world yet ) is just lying bro.

no way
His fully charged jajanken didn't even annihilate her skull in one hit. Sure it was still a one hit kill, but kid Gon wouldn't accomplish that. He'd need to land multiple hits but it's not like Pitou is just gonna sit there, she's too fast and Terpsichora might've been overwhelming for regular Gon.
>>
>>120755219
that's absurd and you're stupid for espousing such a fanboyish opinion. Your opinion dimishes your respect for Gon's character too. The point of the arc was that they had no chance, and Gon had to sacrifice 'to-beyond-the-grave' ( greek myth torture level ) in order to fight. Need I remind you that ascended Mereum is stronger than Pitou?
>>
>>120755371
Read the manga.
>>
>>120755308
The CA arc started the same way, just expanding the universe and dumping a new set of bad guys into it. Foreshadowing isn't really Togashi's strength but it doesn't affect the quality of the series anywhere near as much as some people think. It's not a big deal if we haven't been aware of DC until now, it won't make the arc any more or less enjoyable and it doesn't mess with the logic of the story.

>>120755339
But slowly sauntering up to her after murdering her parents before doing so probably wasn't.
>>
>>120755408
>comparing kid Gon's technique to Gon-san's technique
That's already ludicrous, we saw how people assessed Gon-san's power from afar and it was on young Netero's level, so kid Gon's power is many times less than that. Because of power differentials the fighting potential of Kid Gon is zip with that much of a gap.

Ging ( He's an archaeologist )

Ging is neutral but can change if Beyond does something wrong.

Yes, but my point was Togashi wouldn't have written Ging to mention that at all if it wasn't relevant to Kite's death. You're parsing it as if it's real life, when it's a story.

Actors don't play just one role, you fucking spastic. The Zodiacs do.

The more I read the worse your arguments seem
"What about Tsubome?"
I don't see how this is even an argument, she developed an ability with conjuration that uses materialization, you say they don't even need an ability to change their appearance.
Please, just shut up with your head canon bullshit.

I don't think you should think of human Kite and ant Kite as the same person. Ant Kite just has human Kites memories.

I watched the first 2 arcs of YYH and it was a fine shounen battle thing. There weren't any overt flaws, but it wasn't very remarkable either. I'm dumbfounded that the person who wrote YYH was also behind Chimera Ant.

Assuming hunter x hunter uses souls for reincarnation, then I imagine CA Kite's soul would return to original kite, along with any new memories.(killing CA kite)

And that lead into endless HiatusxHiatus.

But yeah, plenty of elements in Yu Yu Hakusho feel like editors meddling with Togashi, trying to make his manga more popular.
Feels like Togashi wanted to do the Ghost Detective bit for a long time but the resurrection got rushed out the door. Then he became a Spirit World Detective but that got thrown out the door in a handful of chapters too, turning the story into yet another pure fighting manga.
Post Toguro Togashi admittedly lifted the psychics from another mangaka but that was also thrown out for more simple fighting.

And the Makai arc is just a holocaustic mess.

I agree, though I could see enough similarities that it was unsurprising. I really loved the characters in yyh and it had good fights, but it was very standard in comparison to hxh. I just hope he doesn't end hxh in the same way.

Guys can we start a kickstarter or something to get Togashi off his ass? I'm sure if all the HxH fans around the world pitch in, we can raise enough for him to write this fucking DC arc with no hiatuses in between.

>Implying watching the anime is bad

This is one of the rare series when the anime is more enjoyable than the manga, the illustration gets so fucking lazy by Togashi, some chapters are ruined because the drawing is so bad.

I don't think Togashi has a problem with money.
>>
>>120758147
>Is HxH worth it
It's a weird shonen battle manga.
It has a fun and fairly interesting power system that's introduced pretty late into the story.
It has good fights and setups for the fights (I particulary liked the Greed Island arc which is essentially a videogame).
The characters are decent, though they're not very developed and a couple of them just drop out of the story.

It's also a light read. I would recommend it.

I didn't watch the recent anime adaptation but from what I saw here it's pretty good. I'd still pick the manga over anime, though.
>>
Am I the only one who actually enjoyed the '99 series and OVAs? 2011 was still way better, but '99 wasn't nearly as bad as some make it out to be.
>>
>>120758362
Something. Anything. Surely for enough money, Togashi will do something.

I am dying from no HxH. I've collected every volume, watched the 99 series a bunch of times, currently rewatching 2011..

The hiatus is not a money thing, he already get a lot of money for do nothing, and have some health problems. I don't think he would start drawing again just because some weebs offer him some cash.

He hasn't canceled the manga in case he ever needs more money. It's an insurance policy.

I knew I was gonna get this reply. I've had this argument many times before but I'll just reiterate.

Leorio isn't very relevant in the first place, removing one or two lines of characterization doesn't matter.

Nice meme.
>removed Kite's importance
No it didn't. It just placed it at the beginning of Chimera Ant instead of the first episode.

Episode 116 is probably the best directed anime episode I've ever seen.

It's an interesting fighting manga. But it's still a manga about people fighting. It had tournament arcs for fucks sake.

By this logic, Evangelion and Lotgh are fighting shows. Heavens Arena is the ONLY battle shounen arc in HxH (and also the shortest, iirc).

The Hunter Exam, Heaven's Arena, Greed Island, and Chimera Ant were all battle shonen arcs mostly about fighting.

The only two arcs that weren't really about the fighting were Yorknew and the Election and they still had plenty of fighting in them.

I'm aware of that, but it's fucking ridiculous how HxH is on hiatus all the time. We've had nothing for so long.

Is he actually injured, though? I thought that was an excuse to play Dragon Quest or whatever.

hxh is battle shounen without a doubt, hunter exam and GI are just as much battle shounen as heavens arena is.

It still minimises tropes and fights so calling it a fighting manga really downplays it but it is what it is.

Has SE hired Togashi to design monsters/characters for any game?
>>
>>120758834
Which is why I prefer to call HxH just shounen, not battle shounen. That term has a negative stigma. There are already too many people who misunderstand what HxH is because they see the "gay" meme and Gon smiling screencaps.
>>
>>120758888
The shitty scan quality on that image isn't helping, but that's not some sort of god-tier art. He's a mid-tier artist at best. Togashi's strength has always been the story over the visuals.

>>120758521
>Leorio isn't very relevant in the first place, removing one or two lines of characterization doesn't matter.
Except it does. When adapting a manga, you have to keep the fans of it in mind and Leorio is a popular character among them.
>Nice meme.
How is it a meme when they literally have Killua stare longingly at Gon all the damn time, made Gon strip Killua with a smile on his face, milked the scene of Killua with his shirt off, and had that kissing scene in >>120758562
Face it, the adaptation is fujo bait.
>No it didn't. It just placed it at the beginning of Chimera Ant instead of the first episode.

You thought wrong fucktard, the only thing that's been stated is that he went into surgery for a back injury. People make up shit like dragon quest memes because they think insulting Togashi online is gonna make him write more chapters.
