Forum News: Vote in the final phase of the Anime Awards 2014
I bet my money on Morau too. He really is a suitable candidate of becoming Chairman, who gets the job done like he said last chapter. And his students probably don't need his guidance anymore. Since he survived mankinds biggest threat, while he wasn't in a perfect condition. I'm pretty sure that he'll overcome the issues of being the Chairman of Hunter Association.
Well, based on the last chapter I have to go for two people. Either botobai or teradin neutral.
Botobai is the man closest to the chairman and if there is any merit to his description box he is likely the strongest hunter in the association. He has a presidential feel to him to say the least.
Teradin seems like a good candidate too. If he is any good at spotting talent them perhaps it would make sense to make him president, the association could become that much more efficient at admitting specially talented people who could lose their chance to becoming hunters for purely circumstantial reasons. If there is any merit to his box description, he is the one that could make the most good to the organization, more so that chidol and perhaps botobai.
Off the Teradin comments, I'm definitely interested in him now we see his mini-bio about reforming the selection process... The Hunter exam always struck me as a somewhat random, not to mention unconscionably brutal. There must be some political repercussions to letting candidates murder each other without consequences, even if the Hunter organization has enough firepower no one wants to mess with it. Still, the fights and survival games have a lot of luck involved, and there's not much focus on non-combat special talents.
However, Teradin looks very Hollywood agent-esque, so I'm a little afraid his reforms might mean turning the exam into some sort of TV idol spectacle, some sort of publicity stunt that puts more emphasis on popularity. That's just speculation based on his character design, tho.
Now that everyone was shown, do you think we will see them all in the manga.
It would be interesting to have some of them doing a campain, trying to get vote, etc.
Right now, it seems more likely that next week (or the one after), we will get the new results and half of them will be gone before we even got the chance to see them
I would like to see the election process, with people trying to win votes by any meaning, trash talking the others, etc...
At some point, we will have to go deeper anyway, 'cause Pariston's role in the disappearance of the hunters will certainly be revealed before the end of the elections...
I don't know about Teradin. He seems like a typical politician who promises good things during the pre-election. Then when the elections are over, his agendas radically change or fails to keep his promise.
As much as I'd like Morau or Biscuit to win, they're up against more known characters with greater political influence.
I still see Leorio as comical relief for the election.
I feel that an underdog will win nonetheless. That's just how Togashi does things ;D
I actually see Pariston as the Politician and Teradin as the old gentleman. Don't know why, but I imagine him being the most nice and polite old man. After all discovering talents is something that you do humbly.
From the point of view of making the plot interesting, my choices would be no president or pariston or leorio.
Teradin seems like a guy with a good idea but not necessarily how to implement them. How will you change the Hunter test to weed out people like Ilumi? He pretty much behaved throughout the contest. Is he going to run a background check on everyone? Put in a test to judge character, perhaps something like the first part of Naruto's equivalent exam? But really you think someone like Ilumi can't figure out if you've a scenario where you got to make an unreasonable sacrifice that the purpose of the contest is to see who would make that sacrifice?
I'm sure if he wins the election he'll do what he claims to do, but it's not clear to me how anything will actually change since he's basically proposing somehow knowing the true nature of everyone who's at the test.
Especially after the last chapter where it was said that Teradin, Lupe and Bushidora were are all part of a faction "for getting rid of the position of chairman".
So, technically, if any of those three wins, they might get rid of the position of chairman...
