Thanks for conceding.

Also, I'll admit the the second and third points nay be a bit confusing. Determination in and of itself isn't a flaw and should be a good quality of any decent character. That's how it was for Gon in the early portions of the story. But it's because of that determination that he saw to it that he get his revenge on Pitou no matter what, even if he had to kill an innocent person.
>>
>>157373569
No, this is what someone who literally marathoned both versions for the first time ever within the past month KNOWS.

And ironically, your "shit filler" is damn great, to the point that it fits and improves the story and whole experience.

Yeah because Gon pissing his pants and crying like a bitch is totally not out of character right? Kurapika crying after killing Uvo was stupid as well.

99 does have some really well animated parts but most of it looks like shit. The first part of Gon v Hanzo is so over dramatic and uses awful smearing.

it's not. It demonstrates how weak he actually is during that time, and does not make him into a Gary Stu who just sits off a poison said to paralyze a grown man for a full week.

All in all, I see you just love lack of animation, zero world and character building, and CYMK color palettes with near zero shading.
>>
>>157372991
>>157373506

Gon has no spunk. He's just constantly getting underestimated because of his pure personality and underneath that is a hard worker that will surprise you.

but it's that innocent personality that I find extremely boring.

Gin is both selfish and humble, he has flaws that don't weight down on him as a character, makes him more interesting and feels more human.

Gin would make a better main character than Gon.
>>
>>157374012
To be fair, Killua was never a serial killer, he was an assassin, and he quit.

Gon's morality is basically like "if you have a reason behind what you do it's okay as long as you're nice to me and don't hurt my friends." Hence why he's effectively come to terms with all his enemies bar the phantom troupe, who has no reason for what they do
>>

2011 had some of the best animation for a long running series ever. It has 148 episodes and not a single one had bad animation.

and I find it extremely refreshing. He's not a "I'm no good for anyone" beta fag, not a clumsy airhead, nor an edgy grimdark chuuni... he's a country kid that behaves like a dog and shuffles the daily decks of everyone else by not fitting in the mold and fitting into modern prejudiced roles.

when you put it that way he is refreshing, but I just hate how the characters outside his friends see him as this angelic being capable of changing lives by just interacting with him. I'm specifically talking about Shoot and Knuckles.

Then again, it's charisma that attract people to him the same way people in the One Piece World are attracted to Luffy.

Honestly I think Yoh Asakura's laid back personality, after already having gone through his edgy phase in the oneshot, or Kakashi's transition to adulthood, both share a similar relaxed air around them that I really like. Yoh was one of the best main characters stuck in a manga with wasted potential. Gon is just absolutely boring, but it's that plainess that people love about him in his world which I find ridiculous.

Gon's a good kid but even when his personality doesn't make me root for him his powers fail me as well. Killua uses his yo-yos twice, is versatile in fighting so I don't get bored of any of his fights, his introduction to Godspeed ability agains Youpi was extremely well handled. Also seeing him break out of his shell in Chimera Ants to make freinds with Octopus and Palm were endearing. The massacre he went on after all those ants that lead him to the incestous fish couple was great. Kurapika has tons of variety in abilities and character. Leorio is currently underused.

I understand what Gon's personality is going for but he gets outshined by everyone both personality wise and power wise. Even his father is more interesting than him.

At least he isn't as bad as Ichigo but that isn't saying much. It's just irritating to have a manga that's so rich of diverse unique characters and I'm stuck with a boring country kid as a protagonist. Yeah I see the point that it might bring out the traits of everyone that surrounds him, and by being the most normal one, makes him stand out more himself. \

not this fucking meme again

he's a good person, the Gon we see in Chimera Ants is broken because it was the first time he felt responsible for someone's death and blamed it on his own weakness.
Him threatening Komugi's safety was a moment of weakness.

Gon's like Luffy, they both only care about the personal impressions they get from people and their own freedom, but they still stand in the side of good at the very end.
Don't make Gon to be some twisted sociopath when he is able to sympathize with people. He was even angry at the Ryodan for the Kurta massacre and felt conflicted that his view of evil didn't align with the reality he was seeing the the York New arc: The Ryodan acting like a family. A morally twisted character wouldn't feel conflicted in seeing terrible people behave humanely.

Also, Gon takes after his father when it comes to seeing the good in people.
