I don't think this is gonna be one piece-ish, while both series are about adventure, HxH plays it more deadly serious then one piece. plus, the "new world" term dosn't soley belong to oda, many people in history have reffered to frontiers as "new worlds" so its a very general term used for a unexplored place. As a one piece fan this acctually thrills me, it'll motivate oda all the more to distinguish his new world to this one (which I believe he's already doing, but now he's gotta extra shove)
Back to HxH
This beyond netero guy, IS a grapload like netero, maybe not as powerful but definetly as influencial. I can't wait for Gon to meet him. Pastrion heading to the outside? SWEET! Lets hope Hisoka comes and confirms wether he's strong or not, we'll have something to side ourselves over until he goes against chrollo! I wonder how many days have passed? I wouldn't really be surpised if Killua and Alluka are involved, but Killuawants to travel the rest of the world first, plus who knows whats out there, Killua has to take that into account, but then again, I wouldn't be surprised if Gon just ran into him and alluka while trying to join the expedition. If he can meet ging off the bat like he did, killua can't be that out of reach. I would love Leorio to join but his studies obviously hinder his travelings, he's only been able to go to places like york shin and the election as visits. Kurapika may not be too far out of the question, as god knows what the heck he's doing. Now for Jairo. I hope we'll be hinted more of him during this arc, cause we've only seen him for one or two chapters.
Awesome chapter, enough said.
And to people talking "mimimi one piece-ish mimimi": considering the travel to a unknow place to be a reference to one or two manga is just poor. Do you guys even think that this idea is originally made by them? Could you just take a look at human history and think again, please?
It's quite bothersome how people like to make those damn references, and sorry if I sound harsh, but at least give the guy with the pencil some credit for what he has done before. When was it that Togashi went mainstream and unoriginal in a poor and bad way to begin with? Let him deliver before jumping to this conclusion please.
Netero has a son, an expedition to unknown lands..... That place sounds like Atlantis or something, a place with myths and legends and invisible on the map.
The chapter was quite good, Pariston being a part of that trip would mean he could be looking to hunt down Beyond Netero.
So, would Gin still look to go to alien lands, with the doors to this place opened?
Anyways, it sucks that its Hiatus again.
I have a strange feeling Kurapica will join the expedition to search for the remaining eyes and predict that they will encounter a country with people who also get their eyes red when in anger.
Page 16 of this chapter reminded me of when we met the Spider.
Seems like we're gonna get another cast of interesting characters!
Great! chapter. Isaac Netero is a damn! cool name, and Beyond Netero seems like an uber badass! Beyond's crew looks interesting and I wonder if Ging is going to join them to venture out to the NW?

might beyond netero be a little reference to other shonen mangas by togashi?
He certainly seems like the 'dumb but courageous' stereotype.
But i cannot get rid of the feeling the true puppeteer here is pariston.
I cannot imagine a manipulative person like him to just 'join' a team without controlling it.Beyond netero may be the leader who brings all those people together, but pariston will be the one in charge via indirect means, imo.
I am really thrilled about all the new ideas and what togashi has in mind.
(Even if i know i will probablyhave to wait a VERY long INDEFINITE time until we can find out anything^^).
Well, i guess we should not see it as a pause for Hunter X Hunter but as the return of our most beloved manga hiatus x hiatus.
We could make a big forum betting system on when we will get the next chapter with huge prizes <:
I want Beyond to be Biske's son LOL. That would be hilarious.
Agree with NETERO. Aizak is a cool name but I dont really like Beyond. I hope that is just a codename. And hopefully he is strong.
Btw, there should only 1 boss in a group. And we know that Pariston is very strong so either Beyond is stronger enough to make him submit or he is planning something under his sleeves (like Hisoka did in the York Shin arc). So many questions so little answers. ..sigh..
It's interesting that Beyond seems to be putting together his own "Zodiac"-type group. Wonder what sort of people he's gathered, and where he found them. I also really want to see that 2nd movie. It seems a little too coincidental that this announcement only happened after Netero died, so no one can really confirm whether Beyond is his son or not. Just having a similar personality is not enough proof. We need to know what Netero said in the video before the mystery about Beyond is solved.
So about 3 years till expedition gets underway
Just enough time for Killua to travel the world and protect Alluka, enough time for Leorio to become a Doctor possibly, enough time for Kurapica to.... er don't even know what he's doing.
Well we all wanted to see the Zodiacs in action, heck we wanted to see them do something more than sit on their asses bickering with one another. Beyond's crew introduces a scenario where we can see the Zodiacs hunt and fight, because I'm sure they will have to get through Beyond's underlings in order to get to him.
I doubt Ging will joing up with Beyond, he will continue searching on his own for ways to get in there most likely. I have no clue what Gon will do. But all in all it is a good direction to head towards as we wait for the politics to take shape in order to get the expedition underway, we will have plenty of interesting moments to take place during that multi year span prior to the trip.
I wish this chapter didn't hype me up like it did, now wait for like 8 months man... Damn.
So, Netero first name is Isaac? Awesome~.
Beyond seems like a crossover between Isaac Netero and Tsezugera. I can see the Zodiacs and Gin's group being rivals of Beyond's group along with Pariston's ants. They might go there separate and eventually meet each other amidst the dangers hidden in there. If Chimera ants came from there, then we can't say for sure what will happen.
i think its pretty obvious why pariston is in the team. because he loves netero so much, and now netero is dead, he misses him so badly thus making him joining a person who maybe the next best netero, which is beyond netero. he wants to have fun with the old man
More weirdos introduced as a part of the Beyond=Netero team (two look like robots and another looks like Popeye lol). Anyone think they might be ant hybrids handpicked by Pariston for the journey?
Just because Beyond looks like a BOSS doesn't mean he's the bad guy. As far as I've seen, all he wants is to explore the unexplored. No harm done!!
I'm quite intrigued with why going to the outside world is a taboo. Is there an invisible force of some magnitude that blocks people from going there? What force could be that great?
About Jin, I have a very strong feeling that his character is not gonna live long. Like, some typical uber strong GOOD guys in movies and mangas. They usually die protecting some kinda "hope" lol. Furthermore, there's a trend in which the authors usually kill the strong good guys to make the story stronger. They don't like siding the main character (which is Gon in this case) with strong characters (Jin) either. Just look at what happened to Baran in Dragon Quest - Story of Dai, Girge in Break Blade, Luffy's brother, and you-name-it. In HxH, Jin has already lived long enough to fulfill the purpose of letting Gon find him. I just hope that I'm wrong bc I like Jin so much.
From this point, this manga resembles Toriko more than One Piece to me. Toriko is also trying to fulfill some "requirements" to go into the outside world. There's even a chef in Beyond's crew, which looks like some kinda creepy cook straight from Toriko.
