Just joking, man. Though Shalnark currently looks like Kurapika's age despite being around 5/6 years older. It's possible that he looked younger when he was 18 as well. I'll admit that's kind of farfetched though those kinds of shota guy things appear in animes all the time.
It seems from the trailer that Kurapika will once again isolate himself, if Gon yelling his name on a cliff trying to find him is any indication. And Uvo being alive...really seems like an alternate version of the York New arc.
Kurapika carried this boys body in the ending song
and Kurapika was 12 or 11 during kurta clan massacre...
and I am sure Kurapika is the one who buried their bodies or someone help him bury them (the person who reported the incident)…
and why did Togashi wrote this in his manga
Shalnark will still die....
I really have to update this....
is this true???

Just to let you know, I'm not seriously arguing for the Shalnark-crack theory...I'm crazy but not quite crazy enough.
the Shalnark-Pairu theory is ok but if this is what the other posters theorize - alternate story some sort - then Togashi already given us that... And in that version where Kuroro didnt get Neon's ability
Shalnark, Paku, Shizu, one of the 3 (Phinx, Feitan and Kurtopi) will still die... along with Kurapika (he might die but I guess base on the movie trailer he'll loose his
Then how do you expect that other theory (Shalnark is Pairo) to happen if from the past (manga) we already know Kurapika will still kill him?
Then I remembered Pairo was black-haired in manga... And thought that the theory is very unlikely to be true...
But then I've reread a short Phantom Troupe fb from chapter 114 and noticed an interesting thing...
See the dark-haired guy sitting at the bottom of the first panel? I don't remember him at all. It could be Feitan, but his clothes doesn't seem like it's really him. Plus Feitan's bad japanese in comparison with other members makes him look like some foreigner, so I doubt he is from Meteor City. So it's either a former member, or Shal with his original hair color. Either way, he really looks like Pairo. Or am I reading into this too much? Probably the revelation that Shal is Kurapika's long lost friend is a bit too much for a movie. So maybe he is the former #4...?
Actually, I think this would make a pretty interesting movie with such a plot twist.
Maybe the memories are of the last time Kurapika has seen Pairo, and then he left for joining GR. Or maybe Shal looked 12 even though being 18. He definitely does look younger than he is.
I did not understand ... but the story of the movie was written by Togashi?
The past of Kurapika will also be seen in the manga? The film could be considered as an advance of the return of Kurapika in the manga?
I miss the Genei Ryodan and Kurapika: _ (
A friend in a spanish forum found a transcription of the sketches in this picture:
I guess it was transcribed from a larger picture:
Perhaps some of the japanese speakers could help here :PQuote:
By the way, some dialogs are assigned to Kurapika, but it may actually be this boy, "Pairo". Probably The guy who transcribed it didn't knew about the character.
the guy behind spider could that be Pairo? or Number 4?
I think it's the number 4....
Kurapika is beautiful in this picture ...
Damn. What if that number 4 guy was a Kurta ? Ehh I wouldn't like that, too much like Naruto
I think Gon looks the most awesome ! I love his facial expression, and his Jajanken stance
that guy on the bg looks like Pairo (adult version) but if He is number 4, he might be Pairo's brother???
so many possibilities... Can Shalnark's eye turn like that???
and what does 11/3 means in the pic below? Is that new trailer? perhaps?
