    [Shounen] Re: Hunter x Hunter

    I both agree and disagree with you on this review, but more importantly...I feel like you've completely missed Hunter x Hunter's main virtues.

    1) The nen system. Oh my God, the nen system. This...

    Poll: Re: Gon vs Killua

    Nope, I'm just choosing to leave it out of the equation because it seems just as likely that it could hurt him as help him, whereas Killua's speed thingie is definitely a new technique, a development.

    [Question] Re: When Will Gon find Ging

    Kaito was always introduced as a conduit to Gin. He's been seen as a major stop on the road that would eventually reach to Gon's father. Since Kaito's dead, Gin's probably going to make an...
