>>
It's a deconstruction of shonen.
>>
the usual bullshit
>>
>>146524227
depend on how old are you.
>>
>>146524227
no it's better . infact one of the best shonen
>>
Is it still hiatus?
>>
It's not a deconstruction nor is it shounenshit. It's "shounen with a twist".

Besides, One Piece and Naruto are both good shounen. Not even joking here.
>>
>>146527975
always.
>>
>>146524227
Well it's my second favourite shonen
>>
>>146528057
What's your favourite?

>>146528115
Dragon Ball

>>146528180
Oh yeah? Well which was your favourite part of the Red Ribbon saga?
>>
>>146528216
The rematch of Goku and Tao
>>
>>146528379
Wrong answer. Get out of my thread.
>>
>>146524772
No the fuck it isn't.

So Naruto is a deconstruction of shonen because he gets mad sometimes?

no naruto is LE ALWAYS GOOD and is kidn nature at heart, always find the TRUE GOOD since he's so PURE DATTEBAYO
>>
>>146531051
did you miss the point on purpose or what?
>>
>>146531051
Did Naruto ever threaten to kill an innocent girl if he didn't get his way?
>>
>>146531207
Considering that anon just posted a comparison between a normal Gon and a serious Gon, I don't know how that picture would show me that HxH is a deconstruction. I could probably make the same kind of picture If I had Naruto eps in my hard drive.
>>
>>146531345
>threathen to kill an innocent girl if he didn't get his way
>oh boy, be careful now! this is surely a deconstruction!

I swear you faggots try to seperate HxH from other shounens but they're all the same.
>>
>>146524227
It's pretty good shounen shit
>>146524772
>>146531006
Fuck off with this meme, character having one mental breakdown is not a deconstruction.
>>
>>146531006
This is the result of watching 2011. Retards everywhere.
>>
>shounen-shit
Do you also think shounen is a genre? What about moe?
>>
>>146531400
I never said it was a deconstruction, you blithering retard. The point I was making was that it is stupid to compare Naruto and Gon.
>>
HxH is essentially just a very good shonen for the first half of the show/story but once it gets to the chimera ant arc personally I think it becomes genius. A very large jump in quality.
>>
>>146531006
Is this meant to prove your point? I could post the same shit with Naruto in part 1 and him getting angry at pain in part 2.
>>
>>146524227
It has its flaws but it's fun as shit, unfortunately the fan base are some biggest elitist fags you'd ever met. We get it HxH is ''''different''''' from other shonen, now shut the fuck up and move on.
>>
If you want to read a shonen go to korea or china. Japanese shonens have all the same cliches.
HxH its an ok 7/10

>deconstruction
>This is my first Togashi manga!

Also you are an idiot if you take until Chimera Ant arc to realise how dark their world is

We had people get eaten in the Hunter's Exam, a kid ripping out the heart of a convict crimminal, some gangsters slaughter off a clan and an auction while they tortured a mafia's bodyguard to acquire his nen, all those people dying in Greed Island

Like how dense do you have to be to be shocked at the anti human themes Chimera Ant's arc shows you to make you go "wow I did not expect this, I thought this was a feel good happy shonen!"
>>
PSA: Shonen is a demographic, not a genre.

Saying "it's a good shounen" doesn't mean anything.

Shounen ≠ Battle anime/manga.

Nisekoi is Shounen
JoJo is Seinen.
>>
>>146534683
Jojo is both

Bitch, go read Gash Bell or Doubutsu no Kuni
>>
>>146524227
It is the zaniest shounen ever. It has everything. It has like a Bleach arc and a Naruto arc and a DBZ arc and a YYH arc all in one anime.
>>
>>146534861
Only for so long, it got moved to a seinen magazine during SBR. Probably because of content.

Point still stands though, Shounen/Seinen are demographics they are not genres and writing in ways that makes them look like genres is retarded, aka everyone in this thread so far.

Literally this.
>>
>>146534677
I think that retard is either baiting or an animeonlyfag. He obviously didn't touch the manga and posted a bait image.
>>
>>146535165
use context, OP just wanted to know if HxH was shonenshit which translates to, does it share similar battle systems like naruto where they are badly implemented, plotholes, shallow central characters that fall in the wide scope of battle manga tropes, ect.
>>
>>146535568
shounenshit as a saying shouldn't even exist though. And it just reinforces the idea that shounen is a genre. If you don't believe me look throughout this whole thread and not once has anyone said "shounen battle" they've just referred to it as a "good shounen"
>>
The Chimera Ant arc is good, apart from Gon vs Pito who is the worst thing I've ever seen
The rest of the manga is mediocre and poorly drawn, not worth it
>>
Ive been enjoying it but i just hit the greed island arc and its making me want to drop the show. Ill probably skip it since all of you are saying that the next arc is the best part of the series.
>>
>>146535706
it's not like you can change it
it's too late but I agree with you
But it's also understandable that most themes and genre int he "shonen" spectrum or demographic in manga fall under the same guise
It's battle or comedy or sports or gag, the themes are usually superficial or simple enough for children to understand
Since it is marketed to kids doesn't it make sense that they all share similar traits that make manga appealing to kids, and that includes power levels (this applies to sports manga too), tournament arcs, battle systems, and a forced heroine role
When people say shonen shit they are talking about the tropes that encompass all the dumb shit that's ever been shown in shonen manga, most of the time being manga from Shonen Jump because it's the most popular shonen magazine

It's not a genre we all get that but when you think of shonen you are supposed to think by now all of these elements
>>
>>146535803
skipping is for pussies
"wahh wahh, I dont have the attention spam of a functional adult, wahh feed me, diaper stinky"
>>
>>146536101
Well if im watching hunter x hunter its clear that im missing a few things that s functional adult would have.
>>
>>146536046
Yes that would be fine if it was just that though. But most harems are shonen, and harems do not fall under half of those as a category, see before Nisekoi.

TWGOK does not share most of these traits.

Just because a lot of shounen battle series are serialized in Jump does not make it the norm to call things generically as "shounen"

One Punch man fits ALL of what you just said and it is still a seinen. Calling it a shounen is just wrong.
>>
>>146524227
One Piss isn't that bad. The anime sucks shit post-timeskip though.
>>
It's good.
>>
>>146535748
>cannot handle a children manga
Good. We sure as hell don't need another faggot in HxH threads.
>>
It's a shounen with absolutely no direction.

Entertaining characters
Cute gay boys
Spooky Clown man
Edgy Blond faggot
and some pretty daunting villains but other than that, it's pretty much "new arc, new story, characters from other arcs and pushed aside and nigh forgotten about"

It's not very interesing.
>>
>>146536231
Water7 was the peak and nothing came close to it.
It had so much conflict, so many good characters you rooted for etc.
>>
>>146528015
Whats the twist?
