Well apparently just thinking 'I don't want to die' is enough to survive against any impossible odds and allow your soul to safely reincarnate after your body has been totally destroyed. Abilities are supposed to be balanced by the risk/criteria, and "I don't want to die" is hardly any restriction worth mentioning.

    But if you accept he has an ability like that, since abilities are absolute, if he can't die and yet his body is gone, then he obviously has to reincarnate as somoene else. Since most Ants are basically human reincaranted anyway, that's not much of a stretch if you allow for the fact that such an ability like 'don't die' can exist in the first place.
    So why doesn't someone like Netero have that ability ?

    Re: Kaito reborn?

    each person have their strengths, and majority of the nen ability people have is base on their personality and traits. even a very strong guy like netero will have limitations.

    i wonder if the death of the queen got something to do with it. them getting their memories back ant serve loyal to a queen her being dead disrupts the higherky of things.
    kaito's brain not being played with could also be the reason why his memories did not get messed up.


    netero did not die the same way as kaito

    Because it's just a cop out for Kite to not die so it's not going to be repeated. Otherwise you end up with a world like FFX where dying is optional. I mean yeah if you look at it, if Kite can learn an ability to 'not die' why would people much stronger than him that clearly enjoy living not learn exactly the same thing?

    Is it just me, or is the title of this thread a major spoiler for any unsuspecting anime-only person who wanders onto the forum?

    Re: Kaito reborn?

    Well, this is primarily a manga discussion forum and at large most of the events being discussed were revealed in the manga well over a year ago so spoiler rules do not apply. No rules are being broken here so far. Not posting thread titles which were in some form a spoiler for someone would kinda hamper discussion too, we would end up with thread titles which don't clearly say what the thread is supposed to discuss.

    ____________________________

    That said, I wonder if we will actually see kite with a boyfriend... or maybe new female kite goes the lesbian way? Or maybe he was gay to begin with and actually got a sorta acceptable deal now? Or maybe he was gay and remains gay so now he is a lesbian.... Meh, I guess even togashi is not brave enough to get into this in a shonen manga lol.

    ^Sensui was gay...

    Gon would want to be her boyfriend for sure... What I really want to know is if Kaito wants to return in his body.

    Re: Kaito reborn?

    The queen probably ate his brain or something. That would explain why he could come back as an ant with the same memories. That and that one slot power he had.

    Good point. Occasionally I forget the japanese have a slightly different approach to the whole thing than in other parts of the world. Gon dating kite would be weird though. For starters gon does not seem to have sexual urges per say. For another if gon is ever going to have a disturbing relationship it is bound to be with killua(lets face it, killua is gay and will likely end up keeping gon in separate jars across a shrine dedicated to him). I am pretty sure a 40 year old man turned a little girl that grows really fast dating gon would be disturbing anywhere. Then again japan....

    nay, killuah ain't gay, it's bromance.
    Dont you remember when gon told him he had a sexual relationship with older women on whale island?
    Killuah was upset because gon was an adult and he wasnt, not because those girl had gon before him

    Re: Kaito reborn?

    Romance in my Hunter x Hunter? What is this?

    The thought of Gon and Killua in any sort of romantic relationship is weird. They both may as well be asexual. And Gon having a relationship with reborn Kaito is really weird. If anything, Gon will probably see Kaito as a younger/older sister, parallel to Killua and Alluka.

    And we don't know if Gon had sexual relationships. He said the older women taught him all sorts of things and Killua's mind went into the gutter.

    I don't think Killua is gay but I don't think Gon cares about those kinds of things. He could be bisexual and when he was dating Palm he didn't even reject her becausse he doesn't love her or anything but because of his training despite the obvious difference of age and all and you know... I admit I was shipping Killua/Alluka during the election arc and I wouldn't have a problem with it if it happens.
