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:
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.Quote:
It's also a Shonen manga, so ages 13 and up.
Where to Get It:

Currently the manga is on hiatus for indefinite period of time. The mangaka, Yoshihiro Togashi, is currently on sick leave, which leave the manga on its hiatus state. As for the current time, there is no news about his condition, the date of when he will return or whether he will continue the manga or not.
As for now, please don't keep asking when he will return as there is absolutely no news about that.

I use to read and watch this religously until the mangaka decided to stop for weeks on end, and when he DID draw it was scribbles... I know he's sick, but for some reason he gets really SICK when a new popular game comes out... something fishy about that. Plus he's married to Sailor Moon, so it's not like he needs any cash, more like a hobby or something to him now.
Anyways, my favorite character is Kirua and the Green Island arc is GENIUS
Dooes Kirua=Killua? If so, he's my favorite character too.
And it's called the Greed Island arc; not Green Island (I used to think that too. But it turns out the game, and the arc, is called Greed Island.). And I also liked that arc. Gon's fight with Bomber was awesome.
Oops ya, a few typos there . I totally knew it was greed and killua, but ya- totally spaced it (it's been a while)Originally Posted by Meijin no Kori
I also love those characters in the genryuudan
*Genei Ryuudan. XD
And the reason I believed the typo with Killua was the whole Japanese r/l thing; meaning that he could be called Kirua too (and I thought that was what you were doing, since the typo just happened to turn out like that).
And as for the GR, I've got to say that I liked Hisoka the best, even though he was just a fake and isn't part of them any more.
well ya, it is kirua, but I remember seeing it in english too....Originally Posted by Meijin no Kori
and ya- damn I totally messed up all names. I'll stop here... now
Hisoka is awesome~ I liked all of them with their powers, but I've always wanted to see Hisoka go all out, he always just toys with his opponents never really going serious. I wonder if he'll do that with the King ant person...
Well, anyways, I've read up to Vol. 18 so far. I should really get up to date first (but I guess I'm going to do that with the "The Law Of Ueki" anime first).
Yeah one of my favorite manga too. I was kind of surprised to see it come out in consecutive weeks to start off the new year. Well I hope this is a new trend especially since I heard that the mangaka acknowledged his faults on a Sailor Moon website and that he hoped to be more reliable and consistent this coming year.
I'm really looking forward to seeing where it goes with Gon and Kirua in the upcoming arcs. I would also like to see how he develops Kurapica and especially that doctor hunter guy. Its kind of hard to believe that this manga came out before Naruto with it being aout 30 chapters behind and still on its 5th arc. There is still much to be seen regarding the characters back stories and the hunter world.
It sure is a long wait for the Chimera Arc so it sometimes makes me doubt if it's even going to come out since Greed Island was finished in 2004 and Chimera Arc isn't complete yet. Well my hopes for it to be animated are still high so I shouldn't doubt it's release but for some reason I do doubt which kinda sucks that mixed feeling.
Oh I love this manga, very very much! the characters are so well made, and its not always about solving problems through fighting. Oh its so a clever type of manga. And the nen system is very fantastic, its probably the best battle power type system created in all of manga. Its a shame though that the mangaka is sick, the chapter releases are quite horribly drawn, however, the volumes are very awesome. He redrew almost everything and added some other art and it looks sooo awesomeness.
Favourite character Kuroro Lucifer, Feitan, Hisoka and Illumi.[br]Posted at: February 01, 2006, 11:42:20 PM_________________________________________________I heard that HXH is going to stop again. The mangaka is taking a 2 month break.
HXH rocks. But it took me a long time to get used to the style of drawing/writing of Togashi. But now I really love its minimalistic ways.
Can't wait to see more of the Genei Ryodan, Hisoka vs Gon... And ultimately Ging Freecs
Can someone translate the japanese words in the picture below? I really dun understand that..
I think it said that Togashi's break is being extended beyond April, the month he was supposed to return
not 100% sure tho, someone else said it translated to that
Thanks pwned hokage...it will be longer to wait for the new chapter..
Yeah, what a drag -_-
