In my dreams, that's the announcement as well. :emo
Man, Togashi is really lazy; hope that he will come back with excellent chapters...
togashi aint lazy, he takes the time he needs imo.
If he'd be forced to publish at the pace of other mangaka the quality would drop immensely and so would his motivation.
He could still deliver an awesome manga, but he would not be able to get character developement the way we are used to it from HxH, he would not be able to think of beautiful side stories like those in the chimera ant arc, he would not be able to get into all the details and since i firmly believe that HxH will be his last manga, i think Togashi wants to do it right or not do it at all.
Remember his age, too, manga industry is no joke, it takes a toll.
I think he deeply cares about his work and thus he wont diminish the quality just to please his publisher or his fans.
Because we all now there is no such thing as 'enough content' for fanboys anyway.
If he returns at march with 20 chapters in his bag then i am more than happy.
(ofc, if he got 30......then i will be even more than more than happy <.< )
I still cannot figure out how much time HxH has left.
I mean, it could go on for a looong time, we have all those new characters introduced, we finally got to see gin, we have the zodiac, we have kurapica+spiders back, we got alluka, we got pariston and his temp hunters and a whole new world to discover.
It could as well end pretty soon in like 50 chapters for the case that the new world will be an epilogue of some kind and togashi deals with all the unfinished business and ends with gon gin and others departing to the new world.
What has to be dealt with tho is the whole alluka business and where she got the powers from, the spiders issues of kurapica, jairo storyline and paristons day x.
Also, i am rather sure about Hisoka fighting a big character in the near future, may it be gon, killuah or illumi and probably dying before the end of HxH
What I'm trying to say is that his work ethics suck, and I don't want to condone it. But the payoff for that is quality manga that many fans adore. Togashi has built his reputation up so much that he is valued (for the money it reels in the magazine), and though his work ethics are really awful, I really can't help but be awed with how he gets to get away with that in the manga industry.
Anyway, I've seen this topic being discussed to death already. Come on guys, we all know Togashi's work ethics isn't exactly the best. Let's not even pretend that it is. The thing is that some are willing to let it pass because, hey, the manga is really good. And some don't like it because it's unfair/it brings a lot of hiatus/the manga sucks anyway (in their opinion?)/etc.
You can't please everybody, and that's that.
I will not stand for Alluka and Gyro to remain a mystery, and for Pariston's cocoon farm be forgotten. I need to know more about them.Quote:
Especially Alluka, because she really tips the power balance in the series for me. It bugs me a lot.
Alluka's power fits within the limits of nen capabilities. It has a restriction applied which makes it much more powerful for starters. She has restricted it to only one person being able to get wishes with no side effects (Killua). Everyone else that try use this ability has bad side effect. Alluka herself cannot make a wish or just wish something she wants to happen, only others can use her ability. Its not very powerful in that regard as she is at the will of other people.
In the same time, due the logic of the world used by Togashi, there wasn't anything else that could achieve such a feat. In the same way there is not any human that surpasses Meryem and the only way was with something nuclear.
Togashi uses this a bit grossly, but I think He's very conscious about the limits of powers and who are able to surpass it and how. He has been consistent about it and instead of the typical "I raise up a level and kick your ass and suddenly Gon is the strongest one on earth" He found a way to do it with consequences that were avoided by a weird new element with its own set of rules.
For me, Togashi just tried to keep the story consistent in the levels of the main cast, adding some other characters with unique abilities (Also, Alluka Nen is impressive and the set of rules are somewhat coherent and the explanation of her abilities were amazingly done. Togashi also tried to not just introduce her and leave it so easy, He managed to wrap the arc with getting her and the election.)
That whole arc is my favorite, even if it's the shorter one.
Gon doesn't exactly get a free pass. Killua uses Alluka to save Gon but this means that he can no longer be with Gon, and as you can see in their separation at the end of Election arc, Gon is crushed by this (look at his face as he says goodbye). In order for Gon to be saved he has to part ways with his best friend in the world.
btw everyone i watched today dbz and i noticed then something about hxh
Gon and Killua are a bit like Son Goten and Trunks
what you guys think about it sounds a bit carried away but
could togashi have the idea from dbz?
doesnt matters really i know that Gon and Killua are 1000 times better chars then them but still interesting
