Well that's disapointing. Don't get me wrong, I like it a lot so far, but it's a shame you never really get the whole team back
This is exactly why I like YYH more in this regard, at least the team wasn't separated all the goddamn time. While keeping the MCs apart is a good way to hype up readers, it's just been too damn long. They need a reunion.
And Yusuke is Alpha Prime.
Kuwabara is a walking joke but god damn i love him.

Why is this allowed?
Because he was referred with a masculine pronoun at some forgettable point, yet her female body and face gets completely ignored.
It's like people haven't seen anime girls refer to themselves as "boku" either, or maybe they just want to force something as canon that they want to be canon.
Pitou's design has been very inconsistent in the manga. Hard to deny that she's female in her later design though.
What better source of information could there be other than a compendium assembled by various people merely out of their love of the series?
I guess only Togashi's word would be more concrete.
>They finally got off the boat in Beserk
It's happening. Togashi will deliver, I can feel it.
>Berserk off the boat
>HxH not even on it yet
>arguing if Pitou is a girl, boy, or genderless
It's impossible to 'win' this argument ever unless the author comes out and says something for sure, which he won't. Technically you are all right. Pitou's gender is purposefully ambiguous, so whether you say he, she, they, it, whatever, you're right. And no, the appearance doesn't prove anything, you all should know better considering Kurapika is also in the show.
I think I could argue otherwise if I wanted to. Kurapika has never been bare-chested even in official promo art, and I think that at least says something about how the author is thinking about his character. This is another pointless argument that no one will win because there is no solid 'proof' though. Just think of the character how you want.
>thinking "we haven't seen his bare chest" is a compelling argument
I'm sorry anon, this isn't even a discussion. There's nothing hinting Pika is female at all. That's wishful thinking on your part.
>Kurapika has never been bare-chested even in official promo art
Except for a fucking volume cover.
Feigning neutrality does nothing but make you look more retarded, fuck off.
My point is more that things are not quite as concrete as you think. The author has never said for sure if Kurapika is a dude, and probably never will. The show has never referred to the character as explicitly male. This is an author who wrote a blatantly trans character later on, he's not an idiot who's not aware of how he's presenting his characters.

>The author has never said for sure if Kurapika is a dude
He has, several times.
>The show has never referred to the character as explicitly male.
It also has.
>This is an author who wrote a blatantly trans character later on
Alluka being trans is tumblr's headcannon.
>He has, several times.
>Alluka being trans is tumblr's headcannon.
I don't even like tumblr and this is absolute BS. Alluka is so obviously trans I dunno how people can even be this far in denial anymore.
Alluka literally has schizophrenia. I think at one point he even says "Nanika is crying in the corner" or something like that.
Unless that's what you call trans, in which case you'd be right.
>Nobunaga might actually be a girl who thinks she's a boy because the author hasn't specifically stated it's a guy and also we've never seen her chest
This is exactly how retarded you sound.
Don't get me wrong, I usually do think 'trans headcanons' sound ridiculous, but it definitely sounds WAY less ridiculous with Kurapika and I wouldn't begrudge anyone for thinking that way about him. Let people think whatever they want anon, sheesh, it's not affecting you.
>but it definitely sounds WAY less ridiculous with Kurapika
Why? Is this your first bishounen character? It's just as fucking stupid.
>Let people think whatever they want anon, sheesh, it's not affecting you.
Where do you think you are?
Pic. The real reason. Unless Togashi later says otherwise it's more likely to be male.
It sure as hell is, unless you're suggesting Pitou is actually a digitigrade animal and her knees shoes were just an illusion.
But do you know what is relevant and canon? The fact that Pitou has tits. She's female.
>You know exactly what that could be.
It's stomach pudge. Go see a doctor if your bulge is located there.
>What's your explanation for it not being Pitou's actual body huh?
Have you ever looked at Pitou's body?
Are you stupid? It looks more like a fold on the skin.
>What's your explanation for it not being Pitou's actual body huh?
Just look at the legs.
In the manga there are several panels of Pitou having a chest. It's also the case in that float Togashi made a few months ago.
I can't believe we're doing this again.
the thread had been going surprisingly well, I guess the children just woke up.
>It's stomach pudge. Go see a doctor if your bulge is located there.
Togashi is a shit artist. It definitely could be a dick.
>Have you ever looked at Pitou's body?
Have you ever come up with a solid argument?
Prove that isn't a design change.
Oh man I had that picture showing a large panel in the manga where Pitou's actually legit flat but I can't find it. Does anybody have it?
Anyway, I think Pitou's body in the manga actually got more feminine over time, with an increasingly larger bust and widening hips.
Pitou had a feminine body very early on.
>Prove it's not a design change.
Is this a troll? of course it is.
Pitou was not a digitigrade animal before and after that one panel. Said panel symbolically reinterprets Pitou as a cat, an animal with digitigrade limbs, which was the whole point of the scene. Obviously it's not a "design change" because it lacks Pitou's bug knees which she still has later, and the fact that she doesn't walk on her damn toes.
I'm just pointing out that change. Either way, I believe that Pitou is either male or sexless, given how it's referenced as an "it". Not like it matters that much to me, anyway; Pitou looks cute as fuck and that's all that matters.
Take it easy, bro. You'll live longer.
I legitimately do not understand how anyone could sooner believe Pitou to be male than female despite all the facts at hand. There's no point in calling this retarded anymore, it's truly puzzling how such willful ignorance can exist.
Well, he had a shirt in the original draft.
Picture for ants, I know. Couldn't find a bigger size.
The art is garbage though. It's undeniable.
> I think Pitou's body in the manga actually got more feminine over time, with an increasingly larger bust and widening hips.
>Either way, I believe that Pitou is either male or sexless, given how it's referenced as an "it".
This whole argument is hilarious and incredibly pointless. Pitou is whatever you want Pitou to be, regardless of anatomy. Anatomy =/= gender. You don't have to be a tumblerite to get that through your thick skull, and no matter how much you try to argue otherwise, you'll just sound butthurt.
Have you read it on mangafox or something? The art isn't "really bad".
>It's not uncertain unless you have autism.
Except it's not certain. Nice projecting btw.
>The only art that's arguably bad is the Hunter Exam.
>oh em gee it's the current year, why can't you agree with me and disregard your arguments?
That's not Pitou's body and that bulge is on the stomach, it looks like around the navel.
Again you're probably going to do the bad anatomy meme but that's extremely far fetched.
It's neither a meme nor farfetched. Don't listen to your dick.
>You're only proving that Togashi has zero knowledge in anatomy and have no right to criticize his art because I'm a fanboy.
Please do some research. Also, even if they were mentally ill, that doesn't 'prove' your argument. Why do people get so butthurt about words? If someone has a dick, fine, if they have boobs, fine, whatever, that's just how it is. But words like 'boy' or 'girl' are just that, words. Who cares which ones you use. I don't see why it's a big deal.
Can you guys stop replying to the obvious moron? Can we either start a good discussion or let the thread die?
Anyway, what does this guy's tattoo say?
Well this lasted a good 100 posts before the usual shitposting, i think that's pretty good for a Pitou thread.
To me HxH pretty much died when Pitou did. The aftermath of getting Gon back to healthy wasn't really important to me and the next story arc is dead at birth.
I'm just going to headcanon that the Meruem and the chimera ants were defeated, but Pitou was the only royal guard who survived because she wasn't getting poisoned by the bomb's toxic effect.
It's better that way.
>"Elements and interpretations of a fictional universe accepted by an individual fan, but not found within or supported by the official canon."
I'm sorry if I was mistaken, but what is it then?
You're honestly stupid if you don't know the difference between technically bad art and lazy sketches.
Take a good artist, give them a broken hand and a dose of laziness, then get them to sketch a first draft so they can go play DQ instead. That's CA arc. Doing a rough sketch won't destroy an artist's understanding of anatomy, their skill and knowledge is still there, they're just not bothering to complete the drawing.
>finds a new purpose in her life after losing the current one
Probably after some convincing speech by one of the main characters or something.
I don't think she would kill herself, it wouldn't accomplish anything.
What's up with all the faggots who want Pitou to be a boy when she's obviously a catgirl?
It worked for Palm.
You're the only one even claiming it's ambiguous. Shut the fuck up retard.
>Seeing something wrong with the art in order to try and prove a nonexistent point
>Being THIS fucking retarded.
>those meat stub fingers
>those grotesque knees
>that retarded tsunface
People need to stop replying to this thread or post other characters with descriptions that don't make any sense out of context (which is the intended topic).
He's not entirely wrong though. It would probably try to become a new queen or king like Zazan or Cheetu.
You're retarded man. You just gave an excuse for his art which means you know it has been shit.
I'm the anon who responded with "lol u mad". lol u mad
The point isn't nonexistent. It's entirely valid. It doesn't matter that it's an unpopular belief. Why are your panties in a twist friend?
To be fair that really was the "cure" for Palm's condition.
You scared me there for a second anon. Please don't spoiler anymore pictures of Pitou.
Is this the face of someone who did nothing wrong?
No. This is the face of someone who fucked up.
Pitou let Gon live too long until it was too late. Should have killed Gon on her way to Kite's corpse.
Being too honest with her promises and failing to realize her priorities was her mistake.
>Should have killed Gon on her way to Kite's corpse.
the entire time she was healing gons senses kept terrifying her, he totally called her every move.
there's also the fact he had koumogi hostage
>the entire time she was healing gons senses kept terrifying her
All the more reason to kill him as quick as possible.
>there's also the fact he had koumogi hostage
Not after they left the palace. Not when they were at Kite's resting place.
And when was the phone call? Was there really not a time window after that?
Yeah, that's what I thought. Pitou could have easily killed Gon in one swipe before the point of no return power up.
Pitou was too nice for her own good, that's all it comes down to.
>The fact that Pitou has tits. She's female.
>tits are exclusive to chicks
Are you trying to imply hermaphrodites or shemales here?
I would be okay with the former.
I'm not to sure about easily, gon was on his game and she broke her arm like retard so if she didn't kill him in one blow she was at disadvantage. She was definitely scared of him though and had no idea what he was capable of
she got the phone call when they were seconds away from kites corpse
She still had a dozen or two seconds to kill Gon even after she healed her arm back.
Instead, she spent those precious seconds taunting that she would kill proceed to kill Gon, which was pretty foolish especially since Gon seemed so threatening.
Again, failing to realize her priorities was her mistake.
Even if she didn't intend to "taunt", that's what she effectively did. She should have realized not to do that by then.
How would it have played out if Gon killed Komugi?
Depends on when exactly, but if he did at the start, it would go like this
>Pitou kills Gon & Kil then goes to help Youpi
>Knuckle and Morel die, possibly Shoot too
>all 3 RG go to Meruem
>depending on how fast they get there, it might be before the bomb goes off
>Netero eventually dies
>all 4 of them get nuked
Kalluto and Alluka are both boys.
Togashi loves creating androgynous MCs. Hell I'd argue Kurama (who's practically Pika's other self) looks way more like a girl than Kurapika. They're both guys though. Also there's a lot of evidence to back up that Kurapika's a male, the people calling him a female or trans character is just tumblr "headcanon" shit.
I can understand why people would mistake him as a girl, but it's been pointed out a million times already that he's a guy. As for him being trans, that's a stretch and it's normally tumblr that tries to push that.
Trans are just a very small minority of extremely vocal people with mental illness issues, assuming that someone might be trans is retarded. It's not normal, and it shouldn't be encouraged.
This. Why can't we just embrace all possibilities and the wonderful implications that come with them. Arguing doesn't go anywhere because neither side can actually prove anything.
Because he is a fucking man, not a woman.
He's a guy
>Arguing doesn't go anywhere because neither side can actually prove anything.
Did you even watch the show
I was talking about anatomy, not gender, and wondering why people would even care if pika has a bun instead of a hotdog. And no, you can't prove that he doesn't, so who cares? People can rage and cry about this all they want, but considering Togashi's history of character writing and how ambiguous some things are about Kurapika, I wouldn't put it past him at all. This isn't like 99% of tumblr headcanons where there is basically nothing to back it up, this actually makes sense, so if you want to fight people over that, you're probably going to give yourself a stroke because you'll be fighting a lot of people and will never get the solid 'proof' you so desire.
>This isn't like 99% of tumblr headcanons where there is basically nothing to back it up, this actually makes sense
I can only hope to reach that level of delusion one day.
There is nothing ambiguous about it. It's not the same situation as Pitou. Pika has been shown to use male pronouns through the entire series and even in his childhood. This is so fucking stupid i can't even believe you seriously there's anything to debate.
I wasn't talking about pronouns, I was talking about what's between his legs. And sure, usually I wouldn't even question if that would be the same as what he's calling himself, but this is Togashi we're talking about. And it definitely is more ambigous than you seem to realize. There are a lot of instances where it is kept neutral (including the novels - while those aren't technically canon, they are co-written by Togashi and explicitly talk about how it's uncertain if pika is a boy or a girl).
I'm not the angry one, I'm just puzzled by how butthurt people are over this. There IS no canon either way, that's the point, it's still ambiguous, so who cares. There's no point arguing, or at the very least, no point getting this mad over something that doesn't even matter. Let people think what they want, who cares.
>it's still ambiguous
That's the thing you retarded nigger, it's not. He's a 100 percent male through and through. Fuck off.
>I wasn't talking about pronouns, I was talking about what's between his legs.
That'd be the same thing, actually.
>but this is Togashi we're talking about
You're grasping at straws now. You might as well say that about every character.
>There are a lot of instances where it is kept neutral
And there are even more where it's explicitely stated that he's a dude.
I feel embarassed just reading your posts, holy shit.
Gon is a girl, it's not confirmed either way so I don't know why anyone cares. It's left ambiguous, let people think what they want. Leorio is also a girl, it's left ambiguous just let people think what they want. Also Meruem is actually a Queen not a King, it's not confirmed either way, just let people think what they want.
>so if you want to fight people over that, you're probably going to give yourself a stroke because you'll be fighting a lot of people and will never get the solid 'proof' you so desire.
And you yourself would be arguing the against an even LARGER amount of people that he's a female. Everyone knows he's a guy. He uses male pronouns, everyone in the series refers to him as male, his build is actually quite masculine if you paid attention. Every website/wiki categorizes him as male, and I'm pretty sure it stated he's a male in the official hxh guide book published by Togashi himself. Does Togashi need to draw him completely naked to get you to shut the fuck up?
I'm not saying he doesn't consider himself male. But there's far too much ambiguity to not seriously wonder if his anatomy is 'male', and what the author is thinking. Especially considering the author's history, e.g. Alluka
inb4 'hurrdurr alluka is a boy!'. I don't care if you think Alluka is a boy or not, if you think Togashi is writing with no awareness of how he's presenting these characters, that makes no sense. He has definitely written trans characters in the past, I don't know why he wouldn't do it more. Moreover, I honestly don't know why it matters. Does it make you that uncomfortable?
Again, there's no ambiguity. Kurapika is male and it's constantly supported by canon. There's zero proof to your retarded headcanon or the Kurta village even being aware of your retarded trans politics.
>But there's far too much ambiguity
Where the fuck is there any ambiguity at all? You keep claiming it even after your arguments have been shot down.
That's literally the only character that could be considered trans, and even then it's more likely that he's just schizo.
Not that there's much of a difference, i'll give you that.
>oh fuck, he has male anatomy
>i-it's just the hormones you guys! He's trans!
It's hilarious how this has come full circle. The people who would opening say that Kurapika is girly and who may have thought he was a girl at first are now saying he's the manliest man in all of manville. Even if you think trans stuff is stupid, come on
What? Alluka literally calls herself a girl and is called a girl by her brother, the only person who really cares and respects her enough to do so. I'm no psychiatrist but that sounds pretty close to transgender to me.
Killua has been shown to enable other people's delusions in the past. I wouldn't trust him in that matter really.
As far as i remember everyone else calls him a guy. Even Killua refers to him as his otouto to Morel.
This argument is getting more and more ridiculous. If you want to go down the path of 'trans people are just delusional' then sure, I guess Killua IS enabling Alluka's delusion, because he loves her more than anyone. All the rest of the family either calls her it or he because they don't care about her at all and would sooner lock her up for the rest of her life. If I recall correctly, it was Morel that referred to her as Killua's little brother, most likely because he didn't know better or because Killua didn't want to elaborate at the time.
>I guess Killua IS enabling Alluka's delusion, because he loves her more than anyone
I don't see how that makes my point invalid. Enabling someone's delusions out of love was shown to be not be healthy with Gon.
Stop, you're being fucking retarded. Togashi writes trans characters, true, but he fucking says so if that's the case (the girl with a male brain from level e, that trans girl Yusuke groped, Alluka). He has not done that for Kurapika, who told Chrollo he is a man that time he cross dressed as a woman. He's girly looking, that's it.
>However, in an unexpected event that the Queen dies or loses its ability to reproduce, known reports states that male soldier ants will break from the colony and will try assume the role as a King Ant. Then they will try to forcibly mate with the females of other species to give birth to a new generation of ants.
I don't think a human womb could survive a "new generation".
This, she just never developed breasts because she was born prematurely.
Not only did Togashi give a disabled snot girl a love interest, he created a touching lesbian relationship. Thank you Based Togashi.
It would be dense to write a textbook trans character and claim its schizophrenia.
I don't agree with that anon about Kurapika but they're right that Togashi is inclined towards writing trans characters. He just seems to find them interestin, he went in depth on the subject in Level E.
>a small boob.jpg
Where? I don't see any boobs.
It's not, but if you think he isn't aware of trans people and has become more and more aware over the years, and isn't aware of how he's portraying his own character, that is assuming he's very dense. Alluka may have two different personalities, but her main one is still seperate from Nanika, and is very distinctly female. She very obviously insists on using female makers, which is pretty standard for a trans person. And Nanika isn't even female, Nanika is basically an 'it'. So where does the female part come from then? Obviously from Alluka herself. I've never really understood the whole multi-peronality/schizo theory. It's always seemed more like lack of understanding from people, or a desire to deny that a show they love has a trans character in it.
HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH *coughing* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA
This isn't the place for your tranny blog you mentally ill faggot.
Nope, I'm not. But that doesn't mean I can't express real feelings wherever I want, because guess what, I'm a real person. I'm sure the majority of resposes will be hate, like yours, but if I make even one person stop and think for a second, that's absolutely good enough. This might be the most pointless place ever to try to bring out anything other than hate and bitterness in people, but, eh, going to do it anyways.
4chan and tumblr are only superficially similar in the same way Yahoo comments or reddit or twitter are similar
In practice the differences in site layout, the concept of board culture and the different demographics which pervade those websites make 4chan far different, and most similarities are the result of 4chan leaking onto the rest of the internet anyway
>thinks /a/ is all about bitterness and hate
>claims to not be new
You're not fooling anyone.
>here's my shitty, not /a/ related garbage blog about my life as a delusional tranny
>i hope that will make people like me!
If you really weren't new you'd know blogshit isn't welcome at all. Just go back to whatever shithole you crawled out of, it'll be better for everyone.
you do realize this is exactly what I expected would happen, right? if you really want me to shut up, don't even talk about my post and pretend it doesn't exist
Feel free to view Alluka as a positive representation of trans characters. But I don't want to hear anymore bickering over KURAPIKA being a trans, because sorry he just fucking isn't.
Kurapika cannot be grouped with characters like Pitou and Alluka. He is canonically male. End of story.
I think this is the worst HxH thread since Meruem vs Shinji.
No way, this thread is completely clear of Killuafags. They won't show up.
