    dark continent

    Does anyone think that the average strength of foes at the dark continent will be stronger than Meruem, or was he just an exception? I think it's bizarre that the story is shifting to a place where the chimera are apparently derived from when it took netero literally every morsel of life just to defeat him. Also, it felt like the zodiacs were around netero's level, or weaker, so how would they last on the dark continent?


    Can someone message me an anime that's similar to d grayman or claymore or deathnote?

    Ive seen Deathnote, deadman wonderland, fairytale, shigurui, ao no exorcist, beelzebub, samurai champloo, code geass, devil may cry, Hakuouki, monster, blood plus, gantz. Basically, something with demons and gore.

    Re: dark continent

    The average? Definitely no. But I think it all depends to how Nen is used and viewed in this part of the world. The Queen didn't seem to know it and the RGs are exceptions, they got Nen because they have been fed with Nen users. So, excluding them the strongest Chimeras are Zazan, Leol etc. IMO they are a weak species in the DC but Ants from the DC must have better physical skills due to the nutriments, harsher environments etc. And if there are actually a King and RGs, they must be vastly superior to the ones we have seen.

    Re: dark continent

    HxH is no strength manga.
    Togahi wont just have everyone on the DC be stronger than their real world counterpart.

    But on the DC, strange things can happen, stuff like alluka, that is my guess.

    There must be a very good reason why humans keep the dc a secret and why it is so hard to enter.

    I think there will be powerful species and monsters, but i would think that on a whole it is like on greed island.
    The environment is hostile, but there are also safe places.

    Re: dark continent

    I think the dark continent will be something like the jungle where you always have to be constant alert. A mosquito is weaker than a human but it can spread disease and kill them.

    I'm thinking it's gonna be a lot like Swindler's Swamp. The strong don't necessarily survive
    if they're easily fooled. But you can't be weak either. The Dark Continent will require
    all the skills of a hunter. There is no "king" in the Dark Continent. Everything consumes
    everything. It will be a vicious cycle.

    Re: dark continent

    I want to see more phantom troupe which is why I hope they go there to find a treasure or something.

    I, too, think that Alluka is connected to the dark continent--which wouldn't be surprising considering the strange things the zoldycks have... like the dragon Zeno was using.

    I hope gon explores nen a bit more, since I don't like his enhancer skills... for me it seems way too similar to yu yu hakusho, plus it is slow and looks lame in comparison to killua's lightening abilities.

    Re: dark continent

    Zeno's dragon probably comes from where they are. What is good is that Togashi will finally show the world of Mystical Beasts because it wasn't well explored. I guess he preferred to wait for the moments where he could introduce the most important ones, at this point we only know Kiriko, some little beasts from the Hunter Exam and Chimera ants, who live in the DC even if smaller ones can be found where they are. HXH started more like an adventure manga like this but the world seemed smaller because Gon's goal was to find his father, he just followed his steps, same for Kurapika's revenge. Now at least he will have his own goal.

    Re: dark continent

    I don't want to see HxH to become another strength manga where the levels of power become ridiculous. I'd be more than happy if Mereum and the RG are the last ones to be exceptionally powerful.

    That said, I want to see more battles based on the way nen is used, tactical battles, and things like that. However, Beyond looks to be pretty strong, and he looks like he has a strong gang, so it'll be interesting to see what happens and how characters stack up. My speculation is that the dark continent arc will involve the Hunter Association and his group, as it appears the manga is set up to be. But we'll see.

    The dark continent won't be a cake walk, but I definitely don't want the creatures or anyone else to get up to such epic strength proportions. Netero wasn't able to defeat Mereum without using the rose; and Netero was arguably one of the strongest hunters in the series (even though he passed his prime).

    Re: dark continent

    I doubt that HxH will go the shonen way about this with just having stronger enemies.

    I mean, yes, there might be creatures of the calibre of Meruem on the Dark Continent, i would not rule that out, but if there are, the arc won't be arround defeating them but rather about accomplishing Goals and finding ways arround those creatures.

    I am really thrilled about what togashi has to offer.

    We can exspect the Tasks to be incredibly difficult.

    I mean, he is sending in the whole zodiac, which are, at least on their fields, the top of the world.

    This won't be watching poor dudes running into their terrible fait like on greed Island.

    No way in hell. Meruem was the strongest nen user ever (especially post rose) ppl may be as strong as him like adult gon but not strgonger than him. If someone rg level showed up they would be a massive threat to gon and kite, anyone meruem level or stronger would just be overkill.

    Re: dark continent

    My only problem with the latest manga chapters is that the zodiac members and many other new characters look reallllly weird and remind me of One Piece, which I'm not a fan of really. Knuckle, Shoot, Knov, Morelle, etc all looked awesome, but these new ones look weird as hell.

    one piece???? WHAT! however I must admit I thought the cow zodiac was similar to Lucy's cow man (fairytail)

    I actually liked the zodiac theme, however I do admit that it kind of ruined the power appeal, since they all looked weak; however, in reality, they are probably all monsters in terms of power.

    Personally, I'm more of a fan of the phantom troupe side of the story, especially their personalities, looks, and powers. We will obviously see more of them, since we have seen kurapika's side for a long long time. Plus, I miss Hisoka and want to see his background, and maybe what he thinks of gon's strength level at the moment.

    But yeah the whole chimera arc was a mistake in my opinion.

    Re: dark continent

    The zodiac seemed weak only because Hisoka said so. Hisoka is not your average Hunter. I think most of them are Morau level or so.
    Let's see how the Dark Continent arc unravels, I'm sure they would take lost of chapters before even going there, and then there's the voyage. He may even go back into the hiatus before we reach the Dark continent.

    When did he say they were weak?

    If memory serves me correctly Ging is one of the top 5 nen users in the world... So they musn't be that weak

    They were less worthy fighting tham Illumi was, and he clearly said it was a letdown. He didn't meet Gin though.
