    Unsettling scenes

    Hunter x Hunter isn't a forgiving manga. Under its veil of a happy-go-lucky shounen protagonist going on adventures with his friends, we've seen images and scenes that have shocked us, disgusted us, and made us wonder how the hell the anime (and manga) got away with showing this in a Sunday morning timeslot (in Shounen Jump).

    What scenes do you think are the most unsettling, from the manga or anime or both? I'd have to say the mandog scene takes the cake for me. It was already pretty gruesome in the manga, but the animation and audio given to it in the anime only exacerbated it for me.

    The Pokkle scene was actually worse for me in the manga since Madhouse omitted some minor scenes from that--but still pretty bad.

    Hisoka scenes are mostly amusing for me, but I can see where they'd be unsettling for some.

    I have to say that the Pokkle scene was the worst in the anime until now

    well for me when the kimera ant had 2 human dogs and killed them... pretty ugly just to imagine that in the real life.

    Re: Unsettling scenes

    Interestint Thread!
    So here my thoughts:
    Its not like HxH somewhen just fully changed the way, its just tht HxH had that mood that gruesome shit can happen everywhere.
    Some scenes which i find unfitting for an ordinary shounen Manga. Some shocked me - yet some of these sceenes also impressed me in some way.
