First for Pitou
Please for the love of god don't make generals
Time to reread the DC arc volumes. First time I read them it was the shitty gibberish scanlations so I barely know what's going on, I've been putting off reading the Viz scans for this very moment.
>The volumes contain video interviews so, it means that he's supposed to be able to work at this time. So, it means he should be able to draw and publish his work in the WSJ. Since his volume is scheduled for November 2 I think he'll be back in October at worst.
CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE ANIME ONCE ITS REBOOTED IN 10 YEARS.
BUT I'LL PROBABLY KILL MYSELF BY THEN.
Those are the tank release dates.
>mfw he does 10 chapters again for another volume and then goes back on hiatus
Togashi just gives up, and wraps up the plot in one chapter with a montage sequence
>Gon gets his Nen back because bullshit
>They go to Dark Continent, nobody finds anything there, everyone goes back
>The Royal Family all die of AIDS
>Gyro died of a cold, his subordinates never found him
>Kurapika hunted down and killed all of the Spiders
>Turns out they'd gotten really drunk one night and decided it would be really fun to massacre a clan
>Leorio became a doctor
>The Zoldycks gave up their lives as assassins and now star in a reality TV show
>Hisoka never scored
>Gon became a deadbeat dad, the cycle continues
This one >>138632870
and pic related are my favorites.
Have a (You) if you want it so much.
Hunter is coming back. For realsies. Seriously, he should have written a conclusion after the election arc. 30 volumes is a good run. But now that more chapters are coming, I'm looking forward to them.
The official databook says pitou is male, that's all there is to it. I'm guessing a lot of you aren't aware, but transgender people do exist, and pitou and kurapika are heavily coded as trans. Looks don't decide gender. Please respect his pronouns and gender because otherwise you're honestly just being rude.
>not buying clearly superior covers because muh tracing
He's probably an OPfag who needs to be in popular threads even if he doesn't know what he's talking about. The manga imprinted upon their minds the idea that people find loud autistic people enigmatic and that if they keep it up one day they'll make friends.
YuYu was the only thing keeping Jump alive before the big 3 arrived. They basically worked Togashi to death, so he only agreed for another series if he could decide the terms of the contract.
He called their bluff and ended YYH abruptly after they tried to push onto him too hard.
This scared the SHIT out of them because Togashi prints money, so they gave him a juicy contract he's been exploiting since and he'll just pull a YYH again if they try to stop him.
If we go more than 10 chapters before the next hiatus I'll be happy.
The art didn't turn to shit at the beginning of the last hiatus.
I heard that because it's now released internationally Togashi doesn't want to release scribbles anymore, that's why the art has been so good (for Togashi standards) apperently he predrew most of the stuff like he would with his volume rereleases, which takes a fuckton of time since he doesn't use assistants.
It's like I'm reading the final volume of Yu Yu Hakusho.
Seriously though what will likely happen is Togashi finally goes fuck it with the art and releases the rest of HxH as a light novel instead.
>The art didn't turn to shit at the beginning of the last hiatus.
Yes it was. It wasn't horrible but the last two chapters showed obvious decline. He probably spent two years sketching that DC double-page spread then gave up.
I now have another excuse to use this.
This. One piece just revealed the sequence of main events leading to the final island. Granted there's going to be a lot shoved between those events, it's still going to take over 5+ years.
YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I JUST WOKE UP
ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS
HOLY FUCKING FUCK HOLY FUCK HOLY FUCK HOLY FUCK HOLY FUCK THANK YOU GOD
I feel sympathy for the guy. I want him to finish HxH, but I can understand why it's taking so long. He's not lazy, he's just a normal human being, would anyone on this board be any different?
Its k, I was just as hyped as you when I got home and read the news my nigga
I'M GETTING THE NERD CHILLS TASTELESS
I know I'm late, but thsi seriously made my day. I've been following HxH for 16 years and I seriously thought last hiatus would be the final nail in the coffin for this series. Thank Togashi it wasn't.
/v/eddit is mad because One Piece won't be the """best""" battle shounen for the next 4-5 months.
>tfw given up and not invested in the story anymore like Berserk because of the hiatuses
Join me anons.
It's like a huge weight off your chest.
That said, I wonder why he doesn't just switch to a monthly schedule so his DQ-and-chill cravings don't go completely ignored for weeks on end and he has 4 weeks to draw ~25 pages instead of 7 days to draw ~14.
Or am I completely misunderstanding how the industry works?
well fuck, There it is on ANN.
Anon in the last thread I'm sorry for doubting you.
I really needed some good news Thank you Togashi!
Same, just read other manga or play video games to pass the time guys, for me it doesn't even feel like a whole fucking year and a half has passed and this is my second hiatus.
Yeah, it gets really tiresome when Togashi gives exposition on shit that ends up not mattering.
Like all those chapters wasted explaining how auctions work and how to make people bid more or less.
So can we establish what nen category Ging belongs to? I say he's an emitter.
Finally someone else besides me says how bad that was.
It was fucking annoying, and pointless because they didn't get in and the thing was stopped by the spiders as I predicted
not at all
if you are citing the leorio thing that wasnt his "Technique" or anything like that it was just the normal use of nen in a creative way it wasnt something like Bungee Gum or Janken
He's stated that his ability to copy techniques is a natural ability of his, not a nen ability or condition. It also has to be physical.
Maybe when he used his nen to make shapes, I guess idk. Emission seems more likely to me.
>his ability to copy techniques is a natural ability of his
I guess if we go with personality type he might be a Transmuter or Manipulator.
If he was a Transmuter it might explain why Gon was so naturally drawn to Killua.
Explaining how auctions work isn't worldbuilding.
The Dark Continent arc is full of real worldbuilding, finally answering some of my questions about the HxH world and its politics.
Watch it be a shit-ton of exposition
>tfw all you want is for the Zodiacs and co. to hurry up and get to the DC and get massacred by eldritch horrors
>news announced on white day
Togashi-sensei finally noticed us.
It's stated on the wiki that his ability to copy techniques derives from intense observation after witnessing the attack. It seems like it would fit something Ging could do since he's what the anime considers a genius.
I always considered him an emitter because of his short temper though, your explanation seems likely also I just don't see him being fickle or lying often.
Not really. Appraisers exist in the real world too. You could read about it yourself.
If Gon went to a sewage treatment facility and was told the process behind it, would you call that worldbuilding?
except its not you fucking inbred dumbfuck
go reread the fucking arc, ALL CHIMERA ANTS are male except for the queen which is why male ants have the ability to reproduce with other species. Pitou, Zazan, and every other ant was a male
fuck off and kill yourself waifu faggot
Join the /a/ HxH Discord to celebrate Togashi's return https://discord.gg/0sK89npiaqpMKroZ
You have a strong misunderstanding of what was actually said. Knov saying that the soldier ants can forcefully reproduce is a far cry from stating all ants are male, especially considering Pitou wasn't even a soldier ant. And then Kite was reborn as a girl, and she's certainly not a queen, so your shitty headcanon continuously comes up short. Take your fan fiction back to Gaia or whatever you choldren use these days
wouldn't it be amazing if killua grew up and looked like zayn malik but with like white hair and stuff
Prince Bateman is by far the thing I'm looking forward to most. There's something ingruiging about a serial killer who does it manually instead of with nen, he's sure to be batshit insane.
excuse me but this is 4chan, the most inclusive place on the internet, and we don't use triggering words like those here, don't make me call a mod
>but nobody is born with special
So the mystery of who are those bodygards will be known soon.
Finally after all this time.
>Feitan, I just realized is Chinese and Kakin is based on China and he is the temporary leader of the Troupe unless Chrollo got his nen back over the year, so it would be possible.
HOLY SHIT ITS ACTUALLY HAPPENING
>The last time Togashi even drew them was 4 years ago.
Hopefully, he lost it forever. It would actually be an interesting outcome, considering how cliché it is in battle shonen manga to never take the consequences of the MC's actions seriously. Also, if he's able to use nen again, it would destroy all the meaning and impact his sacrifice had.
It's also a really good excuse to put him out of focus now.
It's been almost 12 years since the last time he drew Chrollo in the manga.
I want tumblr to leave the Japanese alone
At least he was drawn outside the manga
It's funny because they unironically consider this their hall of fame.
How many hours did Togashi spend on each eye?
>Tfw none here understood this meme
He's saying that no one is born a Specialist, but considering that I haven't seen infants use Nen, we'll never know. Plus, that statement is trash anyway since Chrollo is a Specialist.
Is 2016 the best manga year ever?
>Berserk gets us off the boat
>Beet is coming back
>HxH off hiatus
What else has happened?
I mean, it is pretty heavily implied that anyone who doesn't know nen will have no defenses and will get absolutely wrecked by anyone with even basic knowledge of nen. Unless Gon discovers another another sort of power that can rival it (which in effect isn't much different from him recovering his nen back, as his sacrifice will again be meaningless) the fact he is "special" won't mean shit unless Togashi covers him in the hardest plot armor known to man.
Time for more Gin badassery.
My dick turned diamond hard from this announcement.
>as his sacrifice will again be meaningless
That's only if there's insufficient conflict before he gets it back. It's not like a consequence has to be permanent to be serious, Togashi just needs to make the process of getting it back reasonably difficult.
So Guts hopped of the boat and HxH is about to hop on the boat. And didn't Berserk go back on hiatus. I feel theirs a connection somewhere.
He probably will gain his nen back but he won't be an enhancer anymore. It's been established that nen can change with time.
Probably he's just been reset to before he could emit aura but i would prefer if Nanika's nen was like Kurapika but stronger. An imposition a rule to "be ok" so if Gon ever gets his nen back he would die.
But it's probably not going to be like that... i think that she healed him and since it was his own nen what was killing him it has to be taken completely... so now he won't be able to get that back. He is going to need a new nen, not his old nen.
You forgot: Every Zodiac is telling their ability and who are the bodyguards who are going to "protect" the princes.
And of course
I hope he survive.
>not important enough of an announcement for a sticky
Take in consideration this:
>The HxH manga debuted in 1998. In all these 18 years Togashi has NEVER released more than 30 chapters in a row. Since 2006 he has NEVER released more than 20 chapters in a single year. After 2006, the year when only 4 chapters were released (the first hiatus record at that time), Togashi started releasing chapters by this pattern: 10 chapters > year-long hiatus > more 10 chapter > another year-long hiatus (only in 2010 he released 20 chapters in a row and in a single year).
>The exception was in 2011, two months before the HxH anime debuts. Togashi returned to finish the Chimera Ants arc and jumped right to the Election arc, covering everything in a 30 chapter session . It was so impressive to the world that Togashi released 30 chapters, it became worthy of news in anime sites! (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/…/hunter-x-hunter-has-longe)
>And finally, in 2014 when the Dark Continent arc debuted, he released only 9 chapters.
Don't know if he's still with us after all this time but will Viz-anon deliver again?
He IS the real traitor though, he just doesn't "know" it. Remember that in that same chapter is was discussed that if a person's memories were altered, Kurapika wouldn't be able to detect a lie from truth. And Mizai has explicitly said that if Beyond had contacted him before he got the task of capturing him he would have joined him in a heartbeat.
It's not farfetched to speculate he's a second traitor. Plus, he was the one proposing the reveal of everyone's abilities, by starting with his own he gains their trust even further.
Especialist or Transmuter, and I hope he dies horribly in this arc.
>tfw Killuafags tainting my hard work
Back away, cancer.
cant wait to see the carnage these fuckers will cause
I'm not ready for DC
last time we had something from DC it caused a mindboggling amount of suffering and that was just a SINGLE SPECIES
what the FUCK is brion going to do to my hunter x hunters
>especially the newborn prince,
>ESPECIALLY prince bateman and pairo's head in his collection.
>Ging's group, zodiacs and the princes in the same cruise.
It's not about powering up. The king would probably get killed by those things as well even though his raw power is 10000 times superior.
Just the convenient nen abilities and specialists (that's the purpose of Beyond's group right?)
come on, a conflict with DC nature will eventually happen, especially the "weapon brion"?
how do they fucking do it?
they've got dangers on the in- and outside of their group
unless, of course, they manage to find don and he's just used to living there
i'm pretty sure there's someone who dumps viz chapters of stuff still
What's with this shit about his sacrifices being meaningless? Kaito got killed and ended up coming back as a little girl. So gon technically made his sacrifice for nothing anyway.
oh you mean that hand all the way in the back?
I'm more interested in what these nausicaa looking things are
He only comes back when he is short on money. What a slut.
>Ending things on your own terms
>Coming to the realization that you've done all you can for others and that its time to take care of yourself
>Walking away while you still have your sanity and dignity in tact
You can see these themes clearly expressed in the finale of Yu Yu Hakusho. Adds a lot of legitimacy to the conclusion of that story.
Just found some new VIZ scans of all the volumes on Madokami! dafuq, they must be new, just two months ago there was only up to vol 3 of the viz versions.
>guys got huge potential\
My boy coming on up.
I want to marry your taste, anons.
I don't think togashi is going to make him strong in the strong he is kinda comic relief
One, that English bruh
two, look at Kuwabara.
The last 9 chapters were good because those were made after a long hiatus, so expect the same in the next 10 chapters at least.
That's really some good detailed art for Togashi.
I don't know if the guy's talented, or is it because he had too much time because of the hiatus so he always put more time on these chapters than he'd usually do in a week.
He mentioned in an interview around the election arc that he was starting to use tones, before then he was choosing not to use them. I think they make the art a lot more polished looking and it's a big difference to the earlier volumes, but his drawing ability has always been better than what people give him credit for.
>but his drawing ability has always been better than what people give him credit for
You realize ability and effort are two different things, right? Being lazy (or injured, apparently his hand was fucked at that time) and publishing first drafts is an issue separate to his skill as an artist.
>the boat arc is going to be as long as the chimera ant arc with even longer hiatuses
>having all of the top hunters/nen users in one arc and in one location
>each of the princes having their battle royale
>trying to survive in the dark continent
togashi has a shit load of planning to make this all work
hiatus after two chapters
Fuck yeah. I hope we'll finally get to see Feitan, conflict resolution expert, run the Troupe into the ground.
Some details indicates that she can be, but the most logical reasons indicates that she can't be.
>gin's dark hair + chead's green hair = gon's black-green hair
>it was mentioned that cheadle knew gin very well in the zodiac arc + their constant bickering
>gon has the personality of a puppy
Did Cheadle eat her placenta after giving birth to Gon? Dogs do it you know
He's a deadbeat dad and a god tier hunter at the same time, it's an interesting combo. On one hand he's well respected for his skill, on the other hand a room full of people will hurl abuse at him for being an asshole, it's something I want to see more of.
She never looked worried when Gon was almost dead.
She never looked happy when Gon showed up already recovered.
She's too young to be a mother.
But well, this is H X H and all can be possible, maybe she's hiding the fact that Gon is her son and maybe she made some technique to forget that or someone did it.
go back to redit/tumblr/mal/whatever shithole you crawled out form

Kinda refuted your own point there.
>She's too young to be a mother.
Not too young to give birth though.
Did Ging RAPECheadle?
Talking about anime on an anime board? Nah.
>Kinda refuted your own point there.
Not really, just keeping in mind the possibilities.
i don't know man, seems legit enough...........
It's coming back? Oh, I'm going to need a recap. Something about a bunch of creepypastas from another continent and then there is something about a bunch of princes and a literal titty monster.
