    It looks like the Japanese volume 23 has a little bit of censorship too.

    I took two pictures of what Viz censored, and to be honest it's not that bad.

    That made me feel old (yeah I'm old). I got into series in real time as it first started...1998? I remember opening the Jump magazine of seeing that color spread of the first chapter in the bookstore (oh back then they don't wrap magazine in Japanese bookstore). I was a big fan of Togashi already since the Yu Yu Hakuso manga, which I started reading it around when vol.7 was published. I got creeped out by his art at first -- it had a strange mix of realistic seinen and cartoony shounen art, and there's an unsettling odd sense of humor/darkness, and a sense of cruelty where you felt this author won't hold back. But i am always a fan of horror so I'm so intrigued by his work. Then of course YYH was exploded to mainstream popularity after the anime.

    By the time HxH started I've already outgrown shounen manga, and this (and Hikaru no Go) is the only series I still make an effort to read because I know Togashi will bring IT no matter what. Back then I rent taped new HxH episodes from the Japanese market from where I live, but I ended up disliking the 1999 anime adaptation so much that I stopped around Heaven's Arena (before it got good at Phantom troupe). Then shortly after I dropped most manga reading all together as life got busy.

    It's only until last year I re-pick up the manga from where I left off (where Kite's head got chopped off). Then Togashi is back on hiatus, then the new anime reboot happened, it just couldn't come in a better timing. It's strange that time has changed so much, for ex: I no longer has someone to share the joy of following HxH with (my sister, who's since married and moved away), and my fiancé is completely clueless about the world of manga/anime that I didn't even bother to introduce him to it. Every Saturday/Sunday I'll just wait for him to do his own stuff so I can watch the new 2011 anime episode secretly.

    Oh yeah my other favorite manga author is Ito Junji, whom I follow with fierce loyalty since my teenage days (when he was still writing in those girls horror manga magazine). So I caught all those little references Togashi made to Ito Junji.

    Yea the censorship in the manga, I wish it was actually edited by Togashi himself. I hate black censor bars.

    Yeah, and maybe he'll make you home made cookies while he's at it.

    Re: Hunter x Hunter Hangout Thread

    What I don't get is that there are a lot of other shonen series that don't get that heavily censored. Take Fullmetal Alchemist for example, both it and Hunter x Hunter are Viz properties and both are shonen. One of FMA's volumes feature a scene where the top half of a guy's face is smashed, featured in all its glory and with no censoring at all (pretty sure one of the only things Viz censored in FMA was what looked like a guy crucified). That's a lot more violent than those scenes from HxH's volume 23. Even if you argue that HxH belongs to the Shonen Jump Advanced line and that Fullmetal Alchemist belongs to the Viz Media line and that's why there's a difference when it comes to censorship, that doesn't explain why the Japanese version is also censored.

    It's probably because the two series are targeting different age groups.

    Hxh and FMA are owned by different companies, and of course they have different limits. But damn! How does Togashi gets away with most of his stuff? He can delay whenever he wants, doesn't need to finalize the chapter for magazine submission, and he can go brutal to the extreme that they need to actually censor it!

    He has earned it. Not only that but they know he isn't afraid to walk away if he feels mistreated (he did it with YYH after he got sick of Editor's pressure at the peek of the series popularity too). He makes more money for Shueisha than the majority of other mangaka and he is a highly regarded with numerous awards in his field. He has had an immense effect on the industry itself and is respected more so than just about anyone else on the Jump roster (even Oda). He has been at this for about 25 years, he's earned his place and they aren't gonna mess with him. He is like all writers, a little eccentric and I feel Shueisha understand who he is and what he needs. I commend him for always believing in his own rules and not allowing others to tell him what to do.

    Totally agree that Togashi has a privilege when it comes to censorship considering what he's done in the past. HXH volumes in japan most of the time sell like there's no tomorrow, so I think Shueisha's learned their lesson of putting too much pressure on him and just let him do what he does cuss in the end, he brings them a generous amount of $$$

    Re: Hunter x Hunter Figures/Collections/Merchandise

    While I wanted to be either Transmutation or Conjuration, I think I might actually be Emission. Emission's pretty cool though so I don't mind xD. Maybe there should be a thread about what Hatsu types we'd like to have and which ones seem to fit us (was thinking about making one a while ago)?

    Re: Hunter x Hunter Hangout Thread

    When do you guys think HxH series continues?? There is a movie coming out perhaps Togashi is focusing on that? i mean, we all know that togashi's work capacity is very low writing a manga is probably already too much a stretch for him, so working on a movie simultaneously is practically impossible. In addition, quite hard to think that someone would fall to a slump very quickly after his last few chapter which has great artwork.

    I am expecting him to announce that he is done with the series, and instead is joining the Olympics as part of the synchronized swimming team.
