    Enhancement, not because I especially find the powers the MOST interesting but I like the personality of users of this type the most.

    Re: Favorite Type of Aura/Nen

    Enhancement is my favorite. It's a very versatile nen type, and two of my all time favorite characters are Enhancers.

    Re: Favorite Type of Aura/Nen

    I have my curiousities with emmiters, I really want to see some more use of that type a bit

    I like reinforcement as its very useful, plus, Gon is a enhancer and he's f***in awesome, but I a tad more favor he transmuter type, There was alot more that you could do with that type than I initially thought and its interesting what they choose to change their aura into.

    Re: Favorite Type of Aura/Nen

    Transmutation all the way hisoka, machi, killua, biscuit, just too many cool users. Manipulation has no votes, its my second favorite now I wished i voted for it (Morel's smoke ability is like one of the best abilities). I wasn't thinking of personalities just which tend to have the best abilities. I actually find Transmutation abilities to be the MOST diverse in terms of usability. Emitters and Manipulation tie for second actually now that I think more about it (Tocino, Franklin, Razor and Gorain)

    Enhancement is probably my least favorite, I feel we haven't seen that many good examples of efficient enhancers besides Uvogin and Netero (an his ability seems like emission) Its simple and efficient but I don't feel its advantages are as clear as they were during Yorknew (with Uvogin). Razor and Biscuit seem just as strong as Uvogin despite not being in the same type class. Then we have techniques that seem less practical like Phinks and Gon (the long wind up time doesn't seem that useful unless they use feints and feel gimmicky) I find Conjurers to be more interesting then Enhancers but overly restrictive, they rely on rules to get really strong powers or are very very specific (which can be good in some cases, Shizuku or Kortopi).

    Then Specialization is whatever you want :P so I don't know what to say about it, some cool abilties I guess.

    for me:
    By Ability:
    Transmutation
    Emission/Manipulator (tied)
    Specialization
    Conjurer
    Enhancer

    Personality:
    Transmuters : deceitful liars
    Enhancers /Emitters: simple, straight forward / short tempered and stubborn (i feel like these two share some overlap)
    Specialists: Independent and Charismatic

    I'd be interested in hearing everyones least favorite aura too and why along with favorite. Nice topic by the way.

    Re: Favorite Type of Aura/Nen

    My favorite type would be specialization. It's the most unique one and the broadest in terms of abilities. And also, specialists' personality type is the closest to mine.

    Re: Favorite Type of Aura/Nen

    In terms of abilities, I like Specialization. I just simply like the oddball abilities. If I were to go by user personality, Transmutation would be my pick.

    Re: Favorite Type of Aura/Nen

    Transformation because it's the one more versatile. And it has a good combo of close-schools, if not the best: Enhancement and Conjuration. This allows the user to conjure their aura if needed and enhance their body to achieve better results.

    And even if I don't like Manipulation I think that Deep Purple is one of the best techniques we have seen so far. Although that would deserve its own thread, actually (Favorite Technique)

    Re: Favorite Type of Aura/Nen

    My Fav Nen type would have to be Transformation as mentioned it can be very versatile and can be very strong.n I also like specialization simply due to it being different and carrying various results.

    Enhacement. Simply the one with the most balanced power grid.
    Also, healing and regeneration... and Über Gon! *-*

    Re: Favorite Type of Aura/Nen

    Hard to say. If Nen existed in real life I wouldn't mind having any of the types as my speciality. I guess my favourites would have to be Emission and Transmutation, and maybe Conjuration as well. Emission is the type that most interests me and the one I want to learn more about, plus it's usually the result I get in Nen quizzes. Transmutation is just so versatile, I could transmute my aura into any property I fancy. And Conjuration is cool seeing as you can conjure up some pretty cool objects.

    Re: Favorite Type of Aura/Nen

    According to Hisoka:

    Enhancers are determined and simple. Most of them never lie and hide nothing. Their words and actions are often dominated by their feelings. They are generally very selfish and focused on their goals.

    Emitters are impatient and not detail-oriented. Many of them quick-tempered and hot-blooded. They resemble the users in building their impulsivity, but the difference with them, they probably tend to calm down and forget more easily.

    Manipulators are logical people who advance at their own pace.They are all for arguments and tend to want to keep their families and loved ones safe. On the other hand, when it comes to pursuing their own goals, they do not listen to what others might have to say about it.

    Transmuters are whimsical liars. Users of the transformation have a unique attitude, and many are regarded as weirdos or cheaters. They rarely reveal their true intentions.

    Conjurers are typically high-strung.They are often on guard as to be overly cautious. They are very observant and rarely fall into the traps. Being able to analyze things calmly is the strength of the materialization of users.

    Specialists are individualistic and charismatic.They will tell you anything important on them, and refrain from being close friends. But, because of their natural charisma that draws others, they are always surrounded by many people.

    I chose Emission because I'm impatient and hot-blooded.

    ---------- Post added at 11:44 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:32 AM ----------

    By Personality: Emission
    Coolest I think: Transmutation and Conjuration
    Fair: Enhancement
    Least Favorite: Manipulation
    I find SPECIALIZATION very powerful it's like doing the impossible

    Re: Favorite Type of Aura/Nen

    So Yusuke's an emitter huh? Just for fun what would you say are the other main characters' hatsu types in Yu Yu Hakusho xD? I'd say Kuwabara is also an emitter.

    Re: Favorite Type of Aura/Nen

    I just started reading YYH not too long ago, and I'm in the middle of the Dark Tournament Saga.

    In any case, at this point I'd put Kurama as an conjuration type (rose whip), and maybe manipulation in there as well (with the seeds). Yusuke's an emitter. Kuwabara's spirit sword I'd put as transmutation (his attack is similar to Gon's janken scissors variation which is considered transmutation). Hiei's dragon fire attack... transmutation(?) or emission(?).

    I'm going with current knowledge. I'm sure they all develop more attacks later on.
