    Hunter x Hunter Hangout Thread [01]

    Okay, this is the discussion thread for all you lovers of the HxH manga (like me). To start things off, here's some info about the series to those who are new to it:

    Summary version 1:
    Quote Quote:
    Many people in the world aspire to be hunters, for either the fame, wealth or special privileges. However, it is said that only one in hundreds of thousands can pass the test to be a qualified hunter. Gon’s journey to become such a hunter, and to find his father, who is acknowledged as the greatest hunter in the world, begins. Along the way, he befriends Killua, a member of a renowned assassin family, Kurapica, who is determined to become a Blacklist Hunter to capture the criminals responsible for his tribe’s deaths, and Lerio, who aspires to be a doctor.
    v2:
    Quote Quote:
    In an alternate world, there are terrible creatures and vast lands and treasures to explore. Resulting from this, there are constant threats to humanity, and those people that contain these threats are called hunters.

    Gon is a small boy on a small island, who has been taken care of his aunt ever since his father left him to become a hunter. But like all young children, Gon has big ambitions, and sets out on a great journey to become a hunter, and to find the dad he never met.

    Expect lots of slapstick humor and thrilling action in this lighthearted manga about a young boy taking his first steps into the grand world.
    Details About The Series: Ongoing at 22 or 23 volumes (at about 255 chapters). However, the author is sick, thus causing there to be long breaks between some of the chapters and the art quality of some of the later chapters to be poor.
    It's also a Shonen manga, so ages 13 and up.

    Agreed.

    1999 made Kurapika too soft.

    Hopefully Madhouse will give us the cold blooded Kurapika!

    I can see the complainers already. "Why did they make Kurapika into a cold hearted bastard? He's supposed to feel guilt and cry on his actions! They ruined the sweet Kurapika for me!"

    Re: Hunter x Hunter Hangout Thread - Part 1

    Is it now sure that the new anime will have more than 45 episodes? It is often in the top 10 but sometimes i have the impression that Madhouse hasn't enough money issue. I am anxious...

    Well I don't think the 99 anime made Kura look soft, just that there's a difference between saying you'd kill somebody and actually doing it, it wasn't too inconsistent with the manga character.

    Personally ,I felt that the 1999 version made kurapika more remorse and guilty instead of soft.After killing off both Uvogin and Pakunoda ,he was guilty about killing them and was haunted by their death.(During greed island arc,when he had fever ,he kept seeing them.)

    I finished reading the Greed Island arc. To be honest, it was mediocre. It was all more nen training and nothing stood out except for two or three events. I accepted the idea of getting into the world of a video game at first and thought it would be something like the Digital World from Digimon, but became underwhelming when they find out that they were still in the real world. The final fight was sorta cool, but it wasn't that spectacular to me. (I need some brain bleach to get rid of biscuit's "real" form...!)

    There was no such scene in the manga, unless I skipped a page or two.

    Better think of it as a 2nd Heaven's Arena arc (but in a much grander scale) both in terms of a training arc and an introduction to the next arc.

    Greed Island was one of those arcs which I always thought was underwelming, especially after the Yorknew City arc, yet for some reason it's actually the arc I'm most anticipating right now. I read it again and fell in love with the whole RPG feel (I'm quite the RPG fan ) of the arc. I really want to see how the new anime adapts it.

    Good luck with that.I think the chimera ant arc will help.
    It was in the anime only.

    That came as a shock to me but this is how togashi roll ,killing off characters with ease.
    If u are reading the redrawn version of the manga ,at least you don't have to worry about the art quality...

    Man the Chimera Ant arc is disturbingly violent. Watching Pokkle get tortured was hard to see. Did Ponzo get shot?
