Wat will happen if togashi died b4 finishing HxH??
do they have what we call conjugal property in Japan? then thats it, the only one allowed to finish the story is wife (and if his children will inherit it) . And hunterxhunter is already under Takeuchi company in order to protect it from the likes of Shueisha and other etc....
Great thread fail poll... Why? All are shounen for me there are fewer masterpieces in Shounen than Seinen to name a few Vinland Saga, Berserk, Vagabond.. And about the poll it is better if tie with one piece only and don't make Naruto the same level as One piece same with Fairy Tail and FMA even if I like FT it is nowhere near FMA's level... And where the hell is Slam Dunk and Death Note there... Not the best for me but one of the best
I chose option 1 because its my personal favorite manga. The only manga I have ever read that's better than HxH is Berserk. But I like HxH more
PS - Its hands down the best written manga in Weekly JUMP.
Don't get me wrong a lot does happen in Berserk but I think it spends too much time making Guts look cool slaying monsters and less
time actually progressing the plot. I think this casual pacing works very well in early Berserk with the Golden Age and Retribution arcs
Also I like the characters better in Hunter x Hunter than Berserk. Berserk characters aside from having something
wrong with them tend to be rather flat. Example is Farnese. She was somewhat interesting in the Retribution arc
when she's a knight or whatever for the Vatican but has all these blasphemous thoughts and what not that conflicts her.
But take away that conflict and well...she's boring. She was interesting again for a moment when she had to ask
her family for a boat but really it just seems like unless they got mental problems Berserk characters are for the most part dull.
Berserk has a lot more action than Hunter x Hunter...but honestly it gets boring to me after a while
because there's little to no actual conflict in it except oh no Guts is turning into a Hollow...I mean into the Berserker armor.
Berserk is still great. But to me it is largely overrated.
Plus I hate the miget witch girl. Whatever her name was. I hope she burns.
Also LOOOL @ " Plus I hate the miget witch girl. Whatever her name was. I hope she burns "

Oh found it. Its on her Wiki.
"In her short comic strip Princess Naoko Takeuchi Back-to-Work Punch!!, Takeuchi met Yoshihiro Togashi at a meeting and had a meeting arranged between them by voice actress Megumi Ogata.. She worked for Togashi as an assistant (doing screentone) and as a manager on volume 1 of Hunter × Hunter. However the work and the demands proved more than she had expected, so she ended up quitting."
You better look for the scans.

i didn't vote. I thought it was great until it got to the ANT arc. wtf was that about. stupidest thing ever. The art and story ruined it for me, not to mention that it took 2- 4 years to end because of hiatus . it was just awful.

Don't know why the art issue is brought up if that problem's been fixed ever since the release of the volumes where everything has been redrawn. I understand that if you were reading HXH during the time of the hiatuses, that art left a bad after taste that most likely distorted Togashi's intentions. I don't believe that same argument can be used again if you read it now from the beginning to the end.
How exactly is it the "stupidest thing ever" to you or what happened in the story that made you feel that way (besides the hiatus and the art)? What makes it awful in your opinion? Were the use of ethos, logos and pathos incorrectly imposed by Togashi?
Back up the things you say, because offering constructive criticism is much more appreciated than providing little or no evidence at all. I suggest re-reading it and discuss how or how it doesn't change your perceptions of the arc.
