Hunter x Hunter isn't a forgiving manga. Under its veil of a happy-go-lucky shounen protagonist going on adventures with his friends, we've seen images and scenes that have shocked us, disgusted us, and made us wonder how the hell the anime (and manga) got away with showing this in a Sunday morning timeslot (in Shounen Jump).
What scenes do you think are the most unsettling, from the manga or anime or both? I'd have to say the mandog scene takes the cake for me. It was already pretty gruesome in the manga, but the animation and audio given to it in the anime only exacerbated it for me.
The Pokkle scene was actually worse for me in the manga since Madhouse omitted some minor scenes from that--but still pretty bad.
Hisoka scenes are mostly amusing for me, but I can see where they'd be unsettling for some.
The only scene who really shocked me was
Hunter exam arc
1)Killua ripping the heart of a serial killer.
2)Hisoka during the 4th stage.
Heaven arena arc
1)Hisoka's schwing and his fight with Kastro.
1)any scene with Kurapika being pissed off.
2)Uvogin eating the dude head.
Greed Island arc
1)The bomber blowing people up.The manga version was more disturbing.
There are a lots of scenes in chimera ant arc that was pretty unsettling.Actually almost every scenes with the ants in it are unsettling.
1)Kurt and Reina getting eaten.
2)Ranmot acquiring nen.(in the anime, it was more disturbing)
When Meruem eating Yupi and Pufu energy, they all looking so gay
well for me when the kimera ant had 2 human dogs and killed them... pretty ugly just to imagine that in the real life.
So here my thoughts:
Its not like HxH somewhen just fully changed the way, its just tht HxH had that mood that gruesome shit can happen everywhere.
Some scenes which i find unfitting for an ordinary shounen Manga. Some shocked me - yet some of these sceenes also impressed me in some way.
Now we come to the truely Spoiler Section, dont read onwards when not knowing the Manga!
I wonder how they will handle this in the Anime!
