And why did Naruto became more famous than the other?

Because the only thing you need in this world to succeed : consistency.

If Togashi was more consistent HxH would have been a lot bigger than Naruto

>And why did Naruto became more famous than the other?
I'll give you three guesses
>>
>>133692731
It's already about as popular as naruto, honestly speaking it has a huge pixiv following and is still very popular in japan even with the hiatus's.

If Togashi wasn't such a lazy prick I'd think he does this on purpose to not become the new naruto.
>>
>>133692874
>It's already about as popular as naruto
You must live in your own little world if you think this is true.
>>
>>133692874
>It's already about as popular as naruto
That's like saying Naruto is as popular as One Piece
>>
>>133693265
But in that case it is
Ask a guy in my college who luffy is a he won't know but evreryone knows who naruto is
>>
>>133692561
Because Naruto was released on a weekly basis for 15 years.
>>
>>133692761
will this be the first year without any HxH? not even a single chapter?
>>
>>133693623
becuse one piece art is shit, i dont like that shit
>>
>>133693935
One Piece has some of the best art among shonenshit though. The characters might be a bit goofy but Oda's attention to detail is ridiculous
>>
>>133692561
I think of it as being "heavily inspired" by HxH, up until the timeskip and it was clear that his own ideas were bland and complete shit and he indeed just copied it
>>
>>133694604
His paneling is bad.
>>
>>133692561
There are a few similar elements. The cool rival having a creepy, ass brother. The multi part exam and what not.

As for the other thing, well, Naruto has twice the amount of content since HxH keeps going on hiatus.
>>
>>133694775
His paneling is bretty gud, they flow together well and his use of perspective is great
>>
>>133694775
I'm glad someone agrees. Only good thing about Oda's art is his backgrounds.
>>
>>133695402
that's a highly subjective statement.
>>
>>133692561
They are the same show but HxH is for edgy middle schoolers.

Fucking Togashi.
>>
>>133692561
Both are about magic ninja. In both, the CIS WHITE MALE!!! main character has a demon sealed within them. in both, there's a pink haired girl love interest which is only interested in the cool rival of the main character. They also both happen in japan. Hence, they're the same thing.

So is saying his art is good all around. Don't throw subjectivity at me because your feelings got hurt by an opinion.
>>
>>133693935
The art style is kinda weird but very fitting for the story/setting.

For the record I do like naruto allot more than one piece though.
>>
>>133695604
Everyone that isn't a wan piss apologist.

I didn't state otherwise.
>>
>>133696058
So do you reply to every opinion you see with "that's subjective"? You don't. When you do, you just look bitter without adding anything to a conversation.
>>
>>133696132
No but stating something like it's fact when it's really not, makes me want to reply. Especially when the opinion is shit.
Cause
>Only good thing about Oda's art is his backgrounds.
really isn't true, and you know it.
>>
>>133696213
>No but stating something like it's fact when it's really not, makes me want to reply
How often do you see someone adding "in my opinion" when they post an opinion? Not often because it's implicit.

>really isn't true, and you know it.
He has some good character designs. Most of them err too much on the side of retarded though, even if they're memorable, and most of his women look the same. Paneling is messy -- it's admirable that he has so much story in him that he tries to shove a ton into each chapter, but he needs to loosen up so it doesn't look like a kid writing with half-margin text in his notebook. Expressions are too simple and overwrought, but that is more of a "writing for young teens" problem so it's passable. Backgrounds are highly detailed and unique, great to look at. There's my reasoning.
>>
Naruto up to end of Zabuza was God tier
Chunin exam was good
Sasuke shit was meh

It started excellent and just trended downwards.
>>
>>133696669
A little of my love for Naruto died when Madara was fully revived but it still was enjoyable
>>
>>133696874
Shippuuden itself had ups and downs save for filler, but it was hype overall
>>
I don't understand the attitude of 'if Togashi wasn't so lazy and didn't take so many hiatuses, HxH would be so much more popular'. I think the exact opposite is true - it's BECAUSE he's able to take breaks that the quality is so high. High enough that even with a fraction of the chapters, it's still almost as popular (or profitable at least) as Naruto. I know the waiting is painful, but it's essential. If Togashi was forced to work on a weekly basis with almost no breaks, I'm sure people would be complaining about quality.
>>
>>133697372
With the amount of hiatus time he's been taking, HxH should be the greatest manga of all time
>>
>>133697396
Well it's certainly my favorite manga of all time
>>
>>133697372
>If Togashi was forced to work on a weekly basis with almost no breaks, I'm sure people would be complaining about quality
He didn't release a single chapter in 2015, how is this excusable at all?
>>
>>133695582

>thatsabigone.png
>>
>>133697396
Chimera Ant is definitely up there in terms of greatest manga.
>>
>>133697420
Because, when it comes down to it, this is HIS series, and his life. He's not indebted to his fans, and he is not a slave to us. I love HxH and want it to continue extremely badly, but I think it's arrogant to assume I know Togashi's life and his reasons for taking breaks. It's not like he's sitting back saying 'haha those losers' about his fans or something (although with the hate he gets from Japanese fans over not writing more, I wouldn't exactly blame him).

If he has serious health problems, then it's more than excusable, but even if it's just a mental block, I think that's also very excusable. I think anyone who is an artist/writer, myself included, can attest that coming by motivation to work on something through thick and thin, without getting mental blocks is virtually impossible. When you are forced to do so anyways, that's where quality drops. Coming by authors or artists who are incredibly productive is really rare. Coming by artists that are incredibly productive AND produce amazing ORIGINAL content is unbelievably hard to find. You can't expect everyone to be like Eiichiro Oda, because most people just aren't. Don't get me wrong, I get the frustration, but the attitudes towards Togashi from people who LOVE his work is very immature imo.
>>
>>133692561
Naruto isn't a strict copy of HxH since they began serializinfg around the same time. But there's no doubt that they influenced each other in the long run, and Kishimoto might have read Yu Yu Hakusho at some time.

Naruto is considerably more popular in the west due to the anime adaptation. Also, Naruto has a more serious feel which is appreciated by western audiences (that's also why OP isn't as popular as it should be).

When discussing the popularity of shounen manga, the two determining factiors are the quality of te anime adaptation and how much serious it is. For instance Jojo is a cult classic in Japan, here in the west it's completly ignored while Attack on Titan is on everyone's mouth.
>>
>>133697655
tl;dnr New chapters will come, but in the meantime I wish people would be grateful for what we have, and let the author live his life. Actually being able to have a life will no nothing but increase the quality of writing.
>>
>>133693930
It'll only be the first year if you count those two special chapters he did for that movie as him releasing chapters.

Otherwise, yes, it'll be the first year with no HxH.
>>
>>133692604
Naruto's not that very consistent in quality but yeah

I understand what you're saying, but he's long past the point of defending.

There isn't much proof that he's got health issues either, surely his editor would inform fans if his back problems was so severe.
>>
>>133697372
Hunter x Hunter is popular because of the Madhouse adaptation, don't even pretend that HxH wasn't niche before it.
>>
>>133697961
11fags being retarded again. HxH was always popular, even more than YYH.
>>
>>133697568
>Chimera Ant is definitely up there in terms of greatest manga.
I hope you're just talking battle shounen, else you really need to read more shit.
>>
>>133697887
I get that, but my point is more that, WHATEVER his reasons for taking such long breaks are, it's really none of our business and even if the series is ongoing, he isn't indebted to us, so saying something like 'he has no excuse' isn't fair imo. In other words, there's no defending that has to be done, because this is his series, not ours. However, I'm well aware that me saying this isn't going to stop people from complaining or being angry, but I guess that's just a sign of how much people care about this series (for anyone arguing that stories don't impact people hugely...well, here some pretty good proof otherwise).
>>
>>133697568
Yorkshin is the better written work overall.
>>
>>133698085
It's still a matter of perspective. There is no ONE 'best manga'. However, now I'm curious to know what your recommendations for 'best manga' are.

He's not that far off if you're just talking about Japan. Their sales per volume were on par last time a HxH tank was released, with only one volume of Naruto beating it.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-12-01/top-selling-manga-in-japan-by-volume/2013

Obviously Naruto is far bigger worldwide and probably in terms of recognition in Japan, but their fanbases there are likely comparable.

HUNTER X HUNTER IS THE GREATEST MANGA TO HAVE EVER EXISTED

The only shonen to ever go challenge HxH as a shonen is FMA:B and possibly Yu Yu Hakusho. It is simply that good that classics can rival it. Everything else is simple meh compared to its brilliance.

>>
>Why is consider Naruto a copy of Hunter x Hunter?

Hunter exams > chuunin exams
Spiders > Akatsuki
Hunters > ninjas
Nen > Chackra
Kurapica clan > Uchiha clan

Latter they start to diverge into much more different directions, but the first chapters show a strong resemblance of ideas.

Naruto arcs generally consist of "strong ninjas are here, lets beat them in a forest" while Hunter x Hunter explores much more interesting concepts like an island controled by videogame rules, a plage of mutants evolving in an isolated country, an otherwordly demon that can grant wishes, etc.

if togashi actually tried and had consistency he would've easily made Hunter X Hunter much more popular but hurr durr.
>>
>>133692731
Haha, yeah right. It would have been well known but never reach the popularity of Naruto
it's like yuyu hakusho reaching the ranks of dbz
