I hope so. I am too close to cute adorable Gon. If they were aged up to 15 I could see them looking relatively the same actually.
LOL, I'm always one of the supporters of the timeskip in every manga. Don't know, why, I actually like that things changes offscreen and trying to figure out how works now and the new relationships.
Timeskips are good, but only when they serve a purpose in my opinion.
One Piece timeskip = Bring all Strawhats together for New World adventure
Bleach timeskip = No difference really besides a few character redesigns lol
If HxH did one, it would need a strong purpose otherwise we'd just end up with a BS timeskip like Bleach that meant nothing in the long run.
Timeskips for timeskips sake is just lazy writing.
Exactly. If Togashi does a time skip that has a purpose then I will be happy with one.
If he skips forward say a year, the character designs don't change dramatically and we get the plot progressed off panel to the point where Beyond is ready to attempt to enter the Outside and everyone is ready to combat him. That would cut out the unnecessary in between time that really won't be that interesting and get us straight to what we want to see. That is something I'd both appreciate and enjoy, because it'd have a purpose. The purpose being to pass over the uninteresting bits and get to the point (something Togashi has done before in the past, most notably the final phase of the Hunter Exam). We will see what happens.
Worst part about this hiatus is that you don't know when it's coming back. It just makes the waiting so much slower. It's only been a month, but it feel like a year.
Wow... it feels like it's been forever since the last manga chapter lol. Hopefully Togashi returns in a few months. Well in the meantime at least we got the anime to watch.
I originally said two months, I'll stick with my original prediction. Just one more to go.
I just finally got myself cured from "HxH manga withdrawal" .The last thing I want is to be reminded again...
as far as timeskips, I'm not really a fan of em unless they are nessesary. I really wasn't that happy when I initally learned OP was gonna get a time skip, but it acctually turned out for the better sofar. as future said, bleach's as of now was sort of pointless.
togashi being togashi, I can easliy see him making the timeskip nessesary, but I personally liked the fact that Gon was a kid traveling in a big world. I remember way back when I was a kid that I would always say "adults and teens get all the fun, saving the world and fighting off real threats *none of that spykids BS* let us kids have some action too!" So Gon and in a odd way Killua sort of live out that old ambition of mine, and seeing them grown would kill it.
as long as its nessesary (and dosn't do a drastic change on us) I'll be fine XD
I'm also really hoping its only another month before its back. I just got off my withdrawl too, but while I'm enjoying the new anime, everynow and then, its like a pendulum blade of doom waiting to strike the rope of disaster if togashi went on a break so long, the new anime would be close to catching up. maybe I'm being too paranoid about it but thats just me.
