Why are old men always the best characters in manga and anime?
>>
Netero was very fun because he didn't go all "muh human righteousness" or "muh goodness", he presented humanity as they are and explained that's the exact reason why we're on top. Humanity's infinite malice was a good way to describe it. The Chimera ants were an evil species as a whole, but he made it apparent enough that humanity is far more capable of evils

Why is Netero so based ?
>>
>>120919136
Netero is the hero we all wish to be.
>>
>>120919038
Meruem's ultimate mistake was arrogance. He spent the entire fight believing there was simply no way he could lose. His entire story was about realizing that humanity were at minimum chimera ant's equals.

What killed him is arrogance.
>>
>>120919206
The only person to never lose to him was Kogumi, which caused him to change his line of thinking.
>>
Prime Netero > The King
>>
>>120919311
>Kogumi
He lost to Netero, though Netero also lost. It's was a mutual defeat with Netero dying on the scene and Meruem succumbing to his wounds. Meruem would have died on the spot if not for the other two giving him their life force or what ever.
>>
>>120919413
What? He lost to Kogumi in his game which made him think that his infinite aptitude in learning could not meet up with a humans in certain categories. He begins to rethink everything from that moment, including how he killed that one child, thinking it could've been a waste because that human could've held potential.

So, who is the strongest character now?
Killua's father?

>>
>>120919530
Isn't it Killua's great grandfather?
>>
>>120919489
No I'm not saying that isn't true, but he also lost to Netero. Those are the two humans to prove him to not be the summit, one in mind and one in body, that's what the entire arc was supposed to signify.

A blind uneducated girl could outwit him and a near crippled old man could out fight him. It's supposed to bring him low.
>>
>>120919530
Considering how we know nothing about Gin or the Zodiacs, that's kind of up for grabs. However the Zoldycks older generation is way more powerful.

>>120919566
What?
>>
>>120919623
>What?
Shit quality.
Download your manga from better sources.
>>
>>120919615
I don't think anybody in the hunterverse would call Netero near crippled.
>>
>>120919675
>that's what he's supposed to signify, that's why they went through the whole "Oh yeah I'm old and lost my touch thing", whether that was true or not.
>>
>>120919711
Did not mean for that to be greentext.
>>
>>120919615
>A blind uneducated girl could outwit him
Did anyone else like Komugi? I only wish she had more screen time.
>>
>>120919711
>>120919746
He's old and lost his touch, but I don't think somebody like Netero could become crippled. I don't see somebody like Netero dying of natural causes, if he didn't kill himself.

Young Netero would literally rape Meruem

Hell Meruem only beats Netero because of Komugi

I remember how the Chaos fans in Sora no Otoshimono suddenly stopped liking her after her transformation. And then, liked her back when she came back to normal.

Anyone else here remembers that?
>>
>>120919501
The ants are part human.
>>
>>120919786
It would have been nice if Komugi knew what the fuck was going on after Pitou healed her injuries instead of just being swept along, and she died in ignorance of who Meruem was. She likely wouldn't give a shit but I guess Togashi wanted to avoid the 2cliche4you innocent girl falling for the beast.

Evil is a human concept. Applicable to anything and everyone to certain situations. Even a fig tree can be an evil incarnate to a biblical god.
>>
>>120920101
The basis for animals not being evil is that they only act upon instinct. Whereas that doesn't happen with humans.
>>
>>120920014
The majority of the ants were 100% animalistic and the ones who embraced their human side were shown to be capable of positive change.
>>
>>120920350
No, they all had thinking minds and were able to read and learn how to read. They have a human side, but not all of the ants had human memories.
>>
>> ITT people pushing the "prime" "young" Netero would beat Meruem

give it up.

Old men are power hungry and insufferable.
>>
>>120921311
Insatiable maybe.
>>
>>120920127
But that's not entirely true. There is some instinct in the things that we do that are ultimately out our control. You could even say that those who do good do it out of instinct.
>>
Is it me or does Oku (Gantz) really likes old people?
I mean all of his senior citizens turned out to be really good characters.
Then of course there is his new manga in which the main character is a old dude going around rescuing and helping people.
>>
>>120920928
That manga was so fucking good.
Gives me chills everytime i read it.

In the manga it was malice.
>>
>>120921672
Actually it was both
>>
>>120920905
Cmon anon that's probably the case, if Netero's nen was denser he would have destroyed Merum it's not like he didn't get hit a billion times
>>
>>120921672
>>120921793
and thats why togeshi is a genus
>>
>>120919796
He was just as strong without a leg, does that mean that he wasn't crippled?

>>120922266
>He was just as strong without a leg,

Dude was done after he lost his leg.
>>
>>120922233
Explain
>>
>>120922305
He was done when he lost his arm.
>>
>>120922349
you see, I used the word genus which sounds like genius but is actually a taxonomic rank used in phylogeny of species
>>
>>120922233
anyone could just put different furigana over a kanji to give it a double meaning.
>>
Friendly reminder that Komogi hates evil and would spray Meruem with bug repellant if she could see. Anyone who ships them is severely retarded.
>>
>>120919136
because he was insane
>>
"I was born king of the ants and allowed to stand at the pinnacle of life. The fact that I am a King entrusted with my entire race, is what marks the boundary between victory and defeat. There is no way that humans that encourage diversity could stand against what these long years of chimera ant evolution have given me. However, there is no longer any benefit to breeding humans, knowing that humans' strong ego can cause a serious disruption in the ants' leadership. So in deference to you, I will allow humans to permanently reside in a ghetto. I will take into account their number and quality when choosing which to feat on. Your solitary fight was not in vain."

Netero then responds with, "You don't understand a thing..... Man's potential for evolution is limitless," before detonating a nuclear bomb. Countless centuries of chimera ant development defeated by human egotism, ingenuity, and the ability of the species to kill en mass through technological evolution.

Genius writing. This is hands down, the best shonen of all time.

I never understood why he had to put that in, seemed needless to me
>>
>>120924696

I think it was a nod to the rumor of North Korea's dictator having body doubles.
>>
>>120924696
One of the core themes of the arc is human cruelty. It was a logical way to end the arc with the reveal the real Deigo enjoying his day while his country and his people were taken over and being slaughtered.
>>
>>120925024
I thought it was just to emphasize that humans can be cleverer than the ants thought, he kinda pulled one over on everyone since he should've been dead but was living an easy life elsewhere.
>>
>>120925385
>>120925024
You're both right

Evolution ~=~ Malice

I actually hated that. We were supposed to feel like "the real monsters" when they used a highly innovative bomb, as if Netero wasn't totally justified and the ants weren't killing humans by the thousands.
>>
>>120933344
Obviously. How else would Komugi and Meruem play Shogi for the rest of eternity? ;_;
>>
>>120933794
we aren't all monsters, were just capable of more monstrous things as a species than the ants as a whole. Just like all the ants aren't bad, the humans weren't portrayed as all monsters either.
