What's with Japanese authors and their obsession with the "x", what does it even mean?
>>
They like the way it looks and sounds.
>>
>>137257602
It means a lot actually.
>>
Isn't it kind of like a plus sign? Basically implying two things together
>>
>>137257639
Are you supposed to pronounce it?
>>
It obviously means Hunter is multiplied by the amount of Hunter and Kiss is multiplied by the amount of Sis. Obviously.
>>
>>137257732
As far as I know, the one in HxH is silent and the one in KxS is pronounced. As to how it is pronounced, I assume it's "ekusu" or whatever sound the nips are able to produce.

>Hunter is multiplied by the amount of Hunter
Could this be some innuendo?

If they want to use a plus, they use a +.

Also remember Z=2 in Japanese.

You know in your example they are using と which literally means "and" right? The cross is merely a coincidence.
>>
>>137257727
An x implies crossing or combining two things together, while I'm pretty sure a plus implies something more advanced or updated, such as in "New Game Plus"
>>
>>137257602
Because the artist DMX really resonated with them.
>>
>>137257602
Hunter×Hunter 'MULTIPLICATION SIGN' (U+00D7)

HunterHunter 'CROSS MARK' (U+274C)
>>
>>137257602
i always thought i was a pun. ekusu sounds likes sexu.
>>
>>137257602
The title "Hunter X Hunter" was a reference to a gag from some variety show, because Togashi is fucking weird.
>>
The pronunciation for the title of HxH is "Hunta Hunta" like above said. It's a reference to Gon searching for Ging so he's a hunter of another hunter.

It's a fork, it implies that they have split into independent development cycles
>>
street fighter x tekken is pronounced with "cross" so this shit is inconsostent as fuck as well, high school D x D has silent x too

Tell me about xxxHolic then.
Why did they have to kill the series?
>>
>>137257602
They're obsessed with both "x" and "cross," it's weird.
