    Did Togashi Foreshadow Gon's transformation ?

    I know this is a little far fetched because this is pretty much explaining Kurapika's Nen but still.. what do you guys think ?

    Read the last panel on this page



    and the first two panels on this page

    Re: Did Togashi Foreshadow Gon's transformation ?

    I think that's less of a foreshadowing and more that Togashi already introduced something that can be used later on. Hm, how to explain this.

    For me, that particular scene was foreshadowing what Kurapika will do with his Nen to combat the Spiders. It does have something to do with Gon's transformation, but for me that scene was specifically foreshadowing Kurapika since Yorkshin is his arc.

    Spoiler show


    But that's just me.

    I was going to type what Cinnabar said, but was unable to put it into words. Basically, the concept of what Gon did was referred to several times, as the examples you showed were, for example, but I don't think they're direct foreshadowing.

    Kurapika is foreshadowing for Gon in the same way that Yahiko is foreshadowing for Naruto.

    I am going to direct you guys to an excellent analysis of the foreshadowing of Gon's transformation as written by Mangahelpers very own Popo, hope she doesn't mind me sharing it with you all:

    This has to be the best and most well thought out explanation of Gon's transformation I have seen. Do make sure to check it out.

    If you dropped it an year ago you should know who is Yahiko. He was introduced in 2008.

    That is how Togashi foreshadowed Gon's transformation. It wasn't random, it was planned LONG in advance. Togashi knows where he is taking Hunter x Hunter, there is arguments to be made that he foreshadowed the Outside world as well. Many things foreshadowed.

    Wait, I never knew about the "forcefully entering Zetsu to make his power explode" thing. I thought the eyes drawn like that were just meant to indicate Gon's state of mind, not Zetsu.

    Definitely. Yeah I'm pretty sure he DID foreshadow the Dark Continent.

    Re: Did Togashi Foreshadow Gon's transformation ?

    I don't really that as foreshadowing. It's pretty well known you get better rewards for taking greater risks in HXH and Gon has always been rather reckless. The only thing you can question is can Gon possibly take enough risk to get the power he was seeking, but since he's obviously meant to be a very special character (pretty much everyone says it) it's not unreasonable to assume Gon gets better deals in the reward versus risk scale.

    Re: Did Togashi Foreshadow Gon's transformation ?

    Why does everyone act like Gon just super powered up and everything was all good. He was put to the brink of death, his body was completely and utterly destroyed. Gon transformed knowing very well he would die. Gon planned the transformation very early into the Ant arc. Gon transforms to die, he doesnt want to live without Kite, the man that he views as a father figure. If Ging died, do you think he'd do the same? The answer is no.
