Your show had some creative ideas, but overall it was all really shitty. The writing sucks, there was no sense of character development, the story never gave us much reason to care for these characters, it was really bad and a waste of time overall. For something with some creativity it was really bland. Leorio was the only good character and he got taken out for more then half the series for muh doctorship
>>137586897 Watch at least the first two episodes. I initially stopped watching after the first episode because I found it to be too corny, but I fell in love with the characters after starting the series back up again.
Every arc feels different in tone since the author makes a hiatus every three seconds. It takes a dive after a few arcs. The fanbase is awful and if they like something called the Chimera Ant arc, they are a loud child from Reddit. Also the creator Yu Yu Hakusho is married to Sailor Moon and plays Dragon Quest...a lot.
>>137586396 Chimera Ant Arc is truly the pinnacle saga that all anime, not just shonen arcs strive to be. Not only is the story telling prodigious, the pacing and character development is top notch. The level of depth that Togashi created is on another level. The exquisite and subtle use of narration at only times of importance delivers an amazing story telling experience.Of the various themes present in this work, his theme of ethics and value theory incorporated with various interactions between the characters appeal to logos, ethos and pathos, and this amalgamation of techniques once again prove his acuity and status as the smartest and wisest writer ever. His profound messages regarding anthropology and the juxtaposition of insects and animals with introspection as a species delivers an amazing tale of tragedy and loss. The fact that he delves into the more psychological aspects of human nature,morality, structuralism, existentialism, meta cognition and phenomenology show that he is the Shakespeare of writing and that he truly understands philosophy, proving that this epic is the most intelligent tale ever crafted. Togashi demonstrates his ken of the human race as a hole through the Chimera Ant Arc, his magnum opus.
>>137587396 >>137587515 I believe you - that other shit came first with that idea. But this was one of the biggest anime of 2011 - and the Greed Island arc is cited by many as their favourite. I'm just saying that combined with its massive popularity, it definitely piqued an interest in the genre again, moving away from the sci-fi-esque roots of the shows you're citing
>>137586825 >plot device You don't know what this means and shouldn't pretend you do unless you want to look like a retard. >discount Cell Fantastic meme. >some guy he barely knew You're fucking retarded, unless you've only seen the 2011 anime Gon had perfectly good reasons to be mad over his death. >Also he treated Killua like shit for no reason He never treated him like shit, all he did was tell him he didn't care about the whole thing and Killua even admitted he was right in the end. Way to show you can't even understand a battle shounen.
Why are people so autistic about CA? Between the guy who tries to force his copypasta and the handful of retards who try to claim the manga went to shit after Yorkshin in every single thread i just have to ask. It's been like this since the anime stopped airing. It's also easily the best arc.
>>137587609 >>137587667 ? Hunter exam to be a hunter and get ging Zoldyck arc to get Killua for Heaven's arena and yorkshin Heavens Arena to get money and prepare for yorkshin Yorkshin because they were told by Hisoka in Hunter exam and for greed island Greed island because try to find ging Chimera ant arc to find ging then avenge Kite Election because of Chimera ant arc
>>137585753 >there was no sense of character development >Leorio was the only good character How does it feel to be clinically retarded? The CA arc was constant character development, Gon, Killua and Kurapika all have developed, nuanced characters, and Leorio is mostly a gag character.
>>137588316 You don't even have to be a CAfag to admit that the arc revolved around character development. It's even considered a weak point by people who hate it, because it dedicates a lot of time to developing a bunch of new characters.
>>137588734 >some coward cry all the time You mean how it culminated in him fighting even though he knew he had no chance of winning and had his pride hurt when his opponent didn't kill him? >delinquent #785924375396370 who's actually not so bad after all You mean the guy whose soft side bit him in the ass and actually fucked him and his role in the mission over? I agree they were pretty fun.
>>137585753 >The writing sucks How did it suck? It was great in how it relied on going against expectations and putting characters in situations where they were forced to either change or carefully work around it. >there was no sense of character development Are you genuinely retarded? Yorkshin was almost entirely about developing Kurapika's character as well as some Ryodan members and also started to show more sides to Gon. CA even had character development be a part of the narrative. >the story never gave us much reason to care for these characters How does that make sense, are you saying the characters aren't likeable? Because that's not an inherent flaw, the series doesn't try to hide that the characters are flawed and can often be assholes. >Leorio was the only good character There's no way you aren't shitposting now. Leorio is probably the most likeable in the series but he isn't a very good character so far.
>>137589261 Togashi always knew how to write, it's just that WSJ didn't let him do what he wanted with YYH. He explained in that letter that they basically wanted it to be a cash cow repeating the same storylines with the same characters over and over.
>>137589415 >I had explored every possible direction for the YYH characters that I could in the context of a professional publication Sounds like he realized YYH was worthless and went to write a good story in HxH
>>137589656 I think /a/ is more mad about deconstruction being used as a buzzword that somehow automatically means something is good. Not to mention people generally don't know what the word means and misuse it.

>>137592771 Watched 2011 anime up to quarter of chimera ant arc, realised it's not getting better no matter what hxh-fags say. Yorknew arc was close to being good, then it's downhill to abysmal card games arc and back to mediocruty in later arc. If it is not battle shounen why it feels like one, looks like one and employs all the fucking battle shounen cliches?
>>137590308 I do like YYH but I just don't think it's well-written. It was all over the place. I don't care what circumstances Togashi went through, all I know is that it was badly written and HxH is much better.
>>137597348 The hopping around between sagas was confusing, Chapter Black dragged on a little too long and Three Kings had the opposite problem of being stopped short while it was getting good. It has good ideas but you can literally tell what the author was thinking while you're reading it. I like stories that are completely unpredictable, i.e. Hunter x Hunter.
>>137599927 Everything is cliche, the difference is execution. Chimera Ant ties all of its character arcs to the themes of humanity and identity, and the writing makes those "cliche" developments great. Shoot's monologues combined with the imagery were just too good.
>>137586825 >Whiny cunt that cries for some guy he barely knew. Even in the manga it was stupid as he still didn't know him that well.
Actually in the manga Kite stuck around Gon for a while, he was the whole reason why Gon wanted to be a hunter in the manga, and also the biggest influence in his life. But judging from your comment you've only seen the 2011 anime so...
>Also he treated Killua like shit for no reason. No he didn't, he just made an observation, and he was right. Killua did admit several times that he in fact didn't give a shit and was using Kite to control Gon. Gon never tried to abandon Killua or do things on his own, Killua left Gon alone several times, even when Gon wanted to stick together.
