But back to what I was saying the king and the RG were pretty cruel because they had no regard for there family. Yeah they have human genes but they don't only eat humans, that just seems to be what they prefer, and I can't really blame them. The only reason I see them as wrong is because the way they go about doing it, and the fact that Im a person helps put me on the side of the people, Im rooting for them especially because I love those characters.
Can anyone tell me, how are the adaption of the anime till now ? I have stopped HxH in the middle of the "Tower Arc", because of lack of time to watch it.
You should DEFINITELY check it out. The current arcs are nothing like the Hunter Exam, and this adaptation is faithful to the manga for the most part.
What Colt is doing seems somehow like a robber that has robbed a house and now is bitching because his friend robbed him, so he goes to the people whom he robbed and beg for their help to catch his supposed-to-be-friend!

While I partly agree with King, there's way more to this. First, I wonder why the newborn ants are compared to us humans, who evolved in both physics and mind over centuries and more. This in itself is a fault, me thinks. Togashi actually is portraying the newborn human race here. Mercilessly struggling for power, wisdom and survival, no matter the cost. We shouldn't forget that, in the past, before we build things like a moral concept and ideals, the humans were just like the ants in Hunter x Hunter. Not really caring for the weak, surviving of the fittest. Heck we slaughtered countless of our own kind, just to ensure that a certain group would stay at the top or become even more powerful. Did these guys feel remorse? Some did, likely, but they still slaughtered. Were there guys who just enjoyed killing or wanted power, not caring for anything weak that they've trampled along the way? Yes, probably a lot.
Were there inner conflicts and tyrants? But of course. Were there humans who came to a past enemy to defeat the new enemy born inside the own country? Leave out if it was just a personal thing, justified or not, it happened a damn lot.
Was there betrayal and individualism to protect your own ego or beliefs? Without a doubt, not even a question.
So as I see it, Togashi is portraying early human civilization. Ofc not completely, there ought to be some differences, but still the ants are awfully similar to how humans acted in the past. People tend to ignore that the Ants are practically reborn, and need to build values, morals and such stuff over time.
Humans crushed the weak ones despite all the tears and blood that was shed, so don't expect the Ants to give a shit about it just after they were born. In the end, a huge chunk of them is human
The tiger wouldn't give a shit because he isn't smart enough to give a shit. Humans eat animals for food too. That means murder but it's justifiable because our food source isn't smart enough to have much value of life.Quote:
The ants have no empathy for people, only empathy for their fellow ants, even though each ant is genetically dissimilar - you can't even call 'em the same species.
Humans are smart, and I'm pretty sure that they are smart enough to tell an animal is terrified when they are about to kill it. Do they give a shit ? No. So no, it isn't as though tigers aren't smart enough to give a shit. It's just them eating a weaker specie.Quote:
Just because humans are smart, doesn't mean they get to decide what has a value in life or not.Quote:
Okay, so I just watched the new Hunter X Hunter episode, and it was awesome. Palm was way too creepy in this episode, and Killua was my favorite part of this episode, also cheetu is really cool, great episode.
P.S. meruem said what we were talking about a little while ago, about not sparing people. P.S.S. rammot is cool, and things are getting intense.
New episode only in 9/1 :SS
ooh the rammot part is awesome. Madhouse has done a great job with the series, the ants arc wouldnt be animated better......
Great episode from start to finish, How many animes out here can mix this kind of humor with this kind of creepiness and gore? None i think.
The king has just been 2 days in our world and he already figured out how leaders are chosen, that part was right 100%.
Killua's reaction faces was hilarious especially the one he made when he saw "cute" Palm.
Next episode is going to be amazing i guess, Killua needs to get his shit together now that he's the only one separating Gon from Rammot.
You can smileee again
Another good EP, MadHouse !
everything so lively and fun !
