hey something is bugging me for a while...
The Bible states…
Cush was the father of Nimrod, who grew to be a mighty warrior on the Earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; that is why it is said, “Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the LORD.” The centers of his kingdom were Babylon, Erech, Akkad and Calneh in Shinar (Genesis 10:8-10).
so... if you read this from a hxh perspective... I think it's pretty awesome XD.
Well.. you know... 'Hunter' is a common word in the english language... and Hunters (like the first humans which hunted animals to get food) existing for thousands of years...
Why did it bug you for a while? I think you had to come to the conclusion that not every historical writing, where a 'Hunter' is somewhat mentioned, is a base for 'Hunter X Hunter' - that where 'Hunter' is more like a rank.
Oh... and please dont search all the fairy tales for the term 'hunter' - or you will think that Little Red Riding Hood is the base for Gon and Kaitos first meeting.
When (depending on which version of it): "The Hunter rescues the little girl from the Beast"
And so on...
it came to me as I was reading and it said that this nimrod guy was the first human who empowered himself and battled with god etc... which means pretty obvious that they are not hunting food as any human should hunt for living or they would simply die .
