Hello darkness my old friend
IT'S OUT BOYS
We may be cursed with hiatus after hiatus
but at least we are not Nana
Leaked ending, this is Gon San's daughter
So, the facts /a/ can't accept:
>togashi should have stayed on hiatus if this shit was all he could come up with
>silva is a cuck and killed his family by his worthless breathen
Holy shit are you fucking serious? Now I'm 100% sure that Togashi is going to die before finishing HxH. I'm done, and don't come with that "his wife is going to finish it" bullshit, because it's not the same, it's over.
Togashi has developed real life Game Shark:
>Infinite money P1 (0/2):
>Outline those sketches you have prepared for 10 years (35874004)
>Print 10 chapters (0000000A)

WHAT DOES IT MEAAAAAAAAAAAAAN
Well that was a good chapter. Guess I'll be celebrating my grandchild's 8th birthday by the time the next one is out.
>Gu (simplified Chinese: 蛊; traditional Chinese: 蠱; pinyin: gǔ; Wade–Giles: ku) or jincan (simplified Chinese: 金蚕; traditional Chinese: 金蠶; pinyin: jīncán; Wade–Giles: chin-ts'an; lit. "gold silkworm") was a venom-based poison associated with cultures of south China, particularly Nanyue. The traditional preparation of gu poison involved sealing several venomous creatures (e.g., centipede, snake, scorpion) inside a closed container, where they devoured one another and allegedly concentrated their toxins into a single survivor. Gu was used in black magic practices such as manipulating sexual partners, creating malignant diseases, and causing death. According to Chinese folklore, a gu spirit could transform into various animals, typically a worm, caterpillar, snake, frog, dog, or pig.
..oh okay, that actually makes sense
So the protective spirits are deifinetly nen-based and not something else.
I'm disappointed. I was hoping that they'd remain mysterious, weird and outside of the understanding of even the nen users. Way to fuck up a good opportunity!
I have accepted that I will die before finishing Hunter x Hunter, but thanks for reminding me of true suffering.
Probably multiples. Weird to know why they're coming here. They're maybe gathering, as they're knowing each other (strange as the princes have to select each other).
The Hamster's one is 13th Prince one.
What am I supposed to do with my life now ?
I wanted them not to be Nen!
They didn't recieve their powers through the traditional means but through a spooky ancient ritual and all of them have protective spirits/animals, which is unprecendented in this series.
Why is it so outrageous to expect something else other than nen?
Even DBZ had magic outside of the Ki system.
I don't remember that, please post the VIZ translation for that, I don't have that saved.
here comes the tripfag's useless opinion
you came just to say this? Fuck off
right here. the urn's power is just nen persisting after death
It's okay, it can wait. You have all the time in the world now.
>They didn't recieve their powers through the traditional means but through a spooky ancient ritual and all of them have protective spirits/animals, which is unprecendented in this series.
>Why is it so outrageous to expect something else other than nen?
it was literally said the first King of Kakin conjured the jar, did you expect he didn't do it through nen?
Was about to post that very same reply.
>"Damn I'm so fucking hyped, I really love that shit"
>endless hiatus ahead, lel
Gorudobarg-samathe nen beast of the King?
Weird how he's reacting to the first question, as if the hamster focused on him first. The hamster and the beasts are probably more dangerous than it seems.
Also, these beasts kinda softly brings us into the world of weird nens, as calamities will.
Why do you think the hamster beast kept asking that dude if he was free? Is it a condition for hijacking people? Do they have to constantly keep themselves busy if they don't want to get manipulated into killing other people or something?
Also it'd be an incredibly efficient way to get someone to kill another prince and put the blame on them.
Just hire some fucking assistants dude and stop doing everything yourself.
Why the fuck is Togashi allowed to do this? I get that they have reasons to keep him in but this is fucking insulting to every other jump mangaka.
I'm pretty sure they just have to ignore it. If you respond to it all it will keep bugging you, and if you say you're free, it will take over your body.
But this means it can only take over nen users.
>Sailor Moon wife takes over
>HxH is now a shoujo
Pic related needs a Togashi X Jump editor-san edit.
He's a manga veteran. He has special privileges.
Responding at all probably makes the nen beast stick to the victim (maybe makes it also invisible to others since they didn't seem to notice the beast sticking to him)
Telling the beast that you are free enables the hijack.
>that's probably how he managed to keep up his good art.
Sure thing, kiddo.
1. He's writting a very good shonen, the second in his career
2. He's fucking rich already, so he doesn't really need SJ money
3. I think him being as free as the wind is the reason HxH is still so good; most shonen go down the shitter after only 100-150 chapters (see Bleach, Naruto)
Did he really have to put in this successor shit? I mean it's not bad per se but I really couldn't care less about some faggots slaughtering each other over the throne by having random abilities floating arround. And with his usual schedule of having a one year hiatus after ~5 chapters, I can't even comprehend how long it will take to even get to the decoy continent.
I just want to see the gourmet world
Common trope in japanese mythology. If a ghost offers you a choice or question you either don't answer or give them the equivalent of "meh". Otherwise you're marked for death.
Best one is how to deal with a split mouth woman. Tell her you have to go to a meeting and she'll excuse herself.
He has a special contract with Jump that lets him take breaks for health related reasons. He signed this contract with Jump after a period when a couple of mangakas killed themselves from overwork, which as I recall it made Jump feel pressured to make concessions
>in the next 6 years he'll release 30 chapters, the boat hasn't even reached the refuel point
I've been expecting a Hiatus for weeks now. Very surprised about the amount we got this time. Hopefully togashi feels better, from what he talks about in author comments he's a fucking cripple. Probably in a lot of pain
Do you guys realize that togashi is fucking 50 and drawing this Manga on his own.
I like hunter X hunter as much as the next guy but he needs to get an artists or quit at 50 you shouldn't be drawing manga
this fuckin chinese I hATE HIM!!!
FINISH the fuckin MANGA and after u can do whatever u want
>he hires some assistants
>hiatus is gone
>he works the entire year without a single delay, but
>hxh transforms into naruto+bleach type of shit and trainwrecks really hard
>togashi dies at the end
He only said break, i'm sure he won't go on hiatus
>like hunter X hunter as much as the next guy
>get an artists or quit at 50
The amount of retards in this thread is astounding. If I love a product made by someone's own effort, why would I prefer someone else making it?
I'd support him if it's a VN
>The amount of retards in this thread is astounding
>I'd support him if it's a VN
Marayam is always getting ignored, so his beast asks people if they have free time.
No -> Nothing happens
Yes -> THEN GO KILL MY ENEMIES
Well their appearance is influenced by their host, and the ones we saw most likely belong to the younger princes so it's only natural that they'd look childish.
I suppose the lion wrestling prince's nen beast will look a lot more intimidating and Bateman's will look like a twisted mess that's part Kant and part Jason Vorhees.
Right now it's the only thing I can do to deal with this hiatus, senpai-tachi. Please forgive me.
DQ73DS and Bulders have already been released in Japan, dummbass. DQ11 isn't even out yet, and that game will probably be pushed to 2017. It's been so long, and that game doesn't even have a trailer.
I'd actually be okay with this.
Kubo can't think for shit and since Togashi is too old to write, that'd be awesome.
But Kubo can't change styles. He has maintained the same style and the only think that he improved upon was drawing explosion and dust.
There are 5 sorts of beasts in the room, some of the older princes beasts are probably in there mixed too already, don't think it are only the young ones and even those look pretty much like animals, thought those would look more abominations reflecting their desire.
Also why are beasts gathering in Wobble's room, cause a baby shouldn't be a real target for most princes anyway, princes are not even able to see their beasts, so just wanting to test them also doesnt fit,
That's fucking wrong though. Gon will get a new objective as he reflects on his adventures while catching up on some schoolwork, and Illumi is still pursuing Killua and Alluka so the Zoldyck family conflict isn't even close to being resolved.
what are you talking about?
his one brother is trying to mindcontrol him
the other brother he's trying to protect is a monster from the very place the plot is heading towards
and we have a brother in the spiders
We know that, but the first objective of the series is complete: Gon's childhood dream of meeting his father.
Gon is now an adolescent (you could argue he is even an adult by now) and the second part of his life starts
3 actually, since Leorio's goal is to become a doctor, he more or less accomplished that already.
Now it's just Kurapika taking his eyes back and Hisoka killing Chrollo.
>yfw as soon as they arrive at DC it will be "New adventures await" and the manga will be over
you missed his children being worthless homos who are not able to keep the family alive
Illumi is an exception, but he most likely is the result of Silva getting cucked by an actual man
Who else is rewatching Yu yu Hakusho during the hiatus?
still best villain Togashi ever made
He didn't say any more details other than what the caliber is, you certainly can kill with a .22 cal .223, and 22-250 are excellent examples. Being a mix between Togashi being a noguns nip and fantasy setting that handgun could be chambered in anything not nessicaly .22lr.
>The dark continent arc
The point is it may never even begin.
Well, he did draw weekly chapters for more than 10 weeks in a row. Based on past performance, this hiatus was not unesxpected.
I'm watching it while using the stationary YowaPedal. I wasn't even thinking about a hiatus.
Toguro is the best, just the best.
You can't be a Gohan if you have always been the mc and if you're still the mc. Last I checked, Gon's face is still in the Jump stamp at the end of each chapter, so he's still the mc. Just because Gon isn't unecessarily shoved into every single plotline that doesn't mean that he isn't the mc of the overall story.
How the hell is he even the MC when he hasn't even appeared for a majority of the chapters in this arc? Hisoka has been in more chapters than Ging.
Wait, it's a boy? Goddamn, Togashi.
So anyone else think that at least some Princes know about the beasts? I would find it odd that the older Princes would be unaware of Nen, even if they couldn't use it themselves.
Also, could a manipulator control the beasts, even if it came at the price of him/her becoming the host?
Kalluto obviously. As a bodyguard for the princes? Killua is out. Alluka can't fight. Illumi is completely focused on controlling Killua and Alluka at this point. Maha doesn't fucking care. So that leaves us with Silva, Zeno, and Milluki. I doubt Milluki will ever leave his room. My money is on Zeno.
It's pretty neat.
But looking at his hiatus chart he often needs to take just one week of break and then he's good to go again, wouldn't it make more sense (and result in a better quality of art) to give him more time, even without changing the structure? Just release the weekly length of 20 pages, once a month. Still better than those irregular hiatuses.
I already rewatched YYH nigga, now i'm watching Harry Potter
That's the one you're looking for.
tl;dr: Kurapika suspects that the succession war is planned to be a passive war fought between the nen beast parasites, that, similarly to the the Gu poison technique where poisonous and venomous animals kill each other in a pot until the most poisonous remains, all loaded up with the others' poison, the boat is the pot and the nen beasts are supposed to fight each other and load each others nen up and then the strongest succeeds, having become stronger through the ordeal itself.
>first sign of danger has her leaving
>Feed an egg for one month without even knowing it
>Automatically get an extremely hax ability with "restrictions" that are almost impossible for someone to know and avoid
>Because mom never pays attention to me and the hamsters are my only friends
>the strongest nen beast succeeds
Doesn't that open up for more troubles ?
The host isn't aware of its existence. One wrong move and maybe the whole boat ride will become a massacre.
As long as the host doesn't use nen, the beast is much rather like a ticking time bomb.
So what do you guys think the Zodiac's nen types and abilities are?
Cheadle: Conjurer. She's a doctor so I bet she can summon all kinds of fly ass medical equipment
Mizaistom: Manipulator. He said he uses the blue card to admit them to the courtroom, yellow to put them under his control, and red to dismiss them. I think the yellow card immobilizes people, the blue one might help him interrogate them, and the red one is probably offensive.
Botobai: Enhancer. He's a big guy and his last name is Gigante so I bet he can enhance his size, becoming a literal giant and fucking shit up.
Cluck: Manipulator. Controls birds. yawn.
Pyon: Transmuter. She's a linguist and she can write software, so her power may involve computers.
Saccho: Conjurer. Has a defensive ability that lets him protect other people.
Ginta: Enhancer. He can headbutt people like a motherfucker.
Gel: Transmuter. A pharmacist & poison hunter. She can transmute her aura into various poisons and chemical compounds. Her dress may be conjured to allow it to lengthen and move like a snake.
Saiyu: Emitter. He uses emission to make the nen monkeys and manipulation to rob people of their senses.
Kanzai: Emitter. His ability is going to be purely combat oriented and may involve baseball.
Pariston: Specialist or manipulator. We know he can control 5000 chimera ants but I think he has at least one other strong ability.
Ging: Could be anything, though I'd lead to specialist or emitter. Whatever his power is, it'll have an element of randomness and unpredictability because having a power do the same thing every time would bore him. (He totally gave Kite the idea for crazy slots)
You think whoever thought this shit up was smart or something? But if you're going this far, I'd say the strongest nen beasts should naturally belong to the person with the strongest spirit, who is therefore also capable of controlling their own nen /beasts.
Ging isn't even going to be playing a major role until they actually reach the Dark Continent. My point is that the series has been following Gon's perspective for over 300 chapters, so having one arc without him doesn't affect his standing as the main protagonist. Ging doesn't have that advantage, so Ging having a bigger role for one arc doesn't mean anything.
Jump still recognizes Gon as the main protagonist. Togashi has more power in Jump than the average mangaka. If Gon weren't the MC, that Jump stamp would have been changed the moment this arc began, nor would they be using Gon to promote HxH whenever it comes out of haitus as seen in pic related. I like Ging, but I don't want you to be in denial and yell "asspull" once Gon returns.
As for Ging's role
he taught Kite how to create Crazy Slot's desperation ability, and he's going to be dealing with forces more dangerous than the chimera ants. Put two and two together, Anon
QUICK, YOU'RE TAKING A SHORTCUT HOME THROUGH A BACK ALLEY WHEN YOU SEE THIS MAD MAN RUNNING AT YOU
WHAT DO YOU DO
>Cluck: Manipulator. Controls birds. yawn.
Sounds useless until they come across some DC bird dragon monster like pic related.
I cast Hiayylmao
It has properties both of delaying and slowing the fuck down
It's super effective!
>yfw as soon as they arrive at DC it will be "New adventures await" and the manga will be over
This will actually happen. Cap this.
If I had more willpower, I'd stop reading for the next 5 years and then catch-up in one night.
I'd miss the "discussions" in that time, but at least I'd be back for the boat landing.
I was so god damn hyped for this HxH comeback and all the epic DC adventures
Why Togashi, WHY
>people still thinking Gon will be irrelevant for the rest of the story
>all Phantom Troupe, all Zodiac, Ging, Pariston, Bisky, Morel, Hisoka, and so many powerful hunters away for the expedition (plus some we don't know like a couple Zoldycks and unnamed hunters/nen users)
If Killua gets tied up with Illumi or something, what's stopping someone like Gyro? Kite, some ants, and a nen-less Gon, that's who.
I honestly thought that the way he hyped DC and set so many possibilities for conflicts in this arc, that he would at least wait until they get to the DC gatekeeper before fucking our shit up.
I was wrong. Again. For the sixth time (yeah, I've been on this 'boat' since 2009..
It'd switch over to Gon after the voyage reaches the pit stop and tons of people are dead/recuperating, then the real voyage begins. Otherwise Gon will go unseen for like the length of the Chimera Ant arc.
It was more a storyboard more than a manga chapter. Why would he exert more effort for a non-canon contribution for another author's story when he's busy writing and drawing his own every week?
Togashi is trying to break his own hiatus records.
I want him to fuck his aunt.
YOU HAVE A REPUTATION WITH COUGAR GON!
>Horii said he is hoping to release Dragon Quest XI in the series’ 30th anniversary year, which series unification producer Ryutaro Ichimura defined as between May 27, 2016 and May 27, 2017.
Why do you always assume anyone who disagrees is automatically in "another camp" or "the enemy"? It totally isn't possible that someone posting here would be more acquainted with Hunter given that it existed for 15 more years with two successful animated adaptations and sold more copies than Ghoul, thus amplifying the likelihood of a HxH bias a hundredfold.
Do you have a functioning brain or do you act this willfully obtuse to entertain others because you couldn't make it as the class clown in high school?
