It would be great if when we reach the chapter 330, the message is "The manga will be paused for 1 month", or something like that.
If Togashi continues writing after chapter 330, it would be good, but we will always know that a new hiatus could start at any time.
However if Togashi starts with a rate of 20 chapters, followed by 1 or 2 months off, we could at least be always sure when he is coming back.
I prefer this arc to end first. And let's not talk about Hiatus. Brings a weird mood in this forums and I don't want to exorcise demons.
hunterpedia, Yupi's aura type is yet to be known. Tsubone's personality & hatsu left me with the impression that she could very well be a (maybe evolved from manipulation) specialization type.
Databook is far more reliable than hunterpedia.
Yupi is Reinforcement from the sourcebooks. His ability to manipulate his body is because his body is made up of a lot of different species, not because of aura.
I guess by the process of elimination, Tsubone's ability has to be Transformation because it sure isn't Reinforcement, Emission, Materialize, or Manipulation. I guess there's always Specialization but that ability doesn't seem so out of line within the other 5 schools to require Specialization.
The spinning guy just spins really fast. If you chop off your legs and replaced it with a metal stick, presumably anyone in HXH could do exactly the same thing.
You are right, yupi is an enhancer. I guess his ability to transform is not nen related then, it probably has to do with his own natural abilities.
I still don't see how her ability can be transmutation though. By definition, transmutation implies a change of the properties of aura so as to make it mimic or behave like something else. On the other hand tsubone herself is transforming into a motorcycle, her nen is not actually taking the shape of a motorcycle. I would compare her ability to ikarugo's. He is in fact manipulation and his arm actually transforms into a gun which is in principle similar to what tsubone does(except that she uses her entire body). The only way for tsubone to be a transmuter would be that the transmuting part applies to changes in your own physical body yet that has never been said yet (as far as we know it applies to nen only) so manipulation makes more sense.
Hmm well we can eliminate it isn't Reinforcement or Emission for sure.
It's not Materialization since she is the motorcycle here. The ability doesn't strike me as 'out there' that it has to be classified as Specialize.
I guess you can make an argument for Manipulation or Transformation.
I assume that since Biscuit's ability is Transformation, it shouldn't be all that much different to transform your physical body (her child body is physically different from her adult form) compared to transform it to a mechanical-like thing.

I for one am more interested in Amane's ability, she strikes me as someone surviving this ordeal more than tsubone for some reason. Have there been guesses? I would think tsubone might be specialisation and it's kinda cool her ability is more like support really, fitting for a loyal servant for a family of assassins. Would be cool to see flashbacks of silva 'riding' her. Lol

I sort of lost hope with canary when she got kod in one hit by kalluto or mrs zoldick whatever her name is
Going back to tsubone. Does her converting her and the other 2s aura does not count as transformation? But the fact that she can morph should and be functional as a say a vehicle should need high levels of manipulation, if she can be a weapon then emission.
I'd say depending on what else she can do, mostly likely specialisation
You don't need to to manipulate what happens to the aura after it's converted to fuel. It's just a source of motion.
The manipulation however is not the aura used as fuel, but her body. We have already seen how Manipulation types tend to change themselves with their abilities. And not just Illumi, Shalnark has something similar.
But well, I guess we will have to wait for the databook.
And why people underestimate Mrs Zoldyck? She's a top assassin after all. Letting Killua hitting/hurt her was probably due the emotion of him growing up. xD
And knowing Zoldycks, I'm afraid that if Mrs Zoldyck is able to use Nen it's probably certain that Canary defending herself against that hit would have been seen as an insult.
It not necessarily that straightforward phan. U would think killua can just use his nen as electricity but he actually charges himself for it. And the fact that tsubone is using others aura and combine it to her own not just to get going but exponentially add to the max speed that can be achieved should tell u it's not that straightforward. Atleast or for me.

And yeah my point was manipulation to her body and transformation of aura to gasoline Ish fuel. I wonder though if it's quantity or quality of aura that matters?
