At least in Mike's case it seems to be some sort of strange breeding from the Zoldycks.
As for Beans, only the anime shows him with a green head. No idea if this holds true in the manga. For me, it's just his design really.
I asssume Bean is some kinda modified human. Perhaps, are all magical creatures from the Dark continent? Like the shapeshifting ones from the Hunter Exam? If so we never know then.
The Dark Continent is the Continent of.......
No. There is Magical Beasts in the Inside World (For a lack of better wording) as it's shown in the first chapters.
Of course, there should be some strange creatures on the Outside World but I wont be that hyped towards it.
it is said in 340 that they humans and magical beast migrated from dark continent... anyone can be from dark continent...
The fact that Ging mentions the Ants migrated from the Outside World implies that whatever comes from 'outside' is probably really different from what's considered normal. There's plenty of weird races in the world of HXH that didn't come from the Dark Continent.
What if the next Hunter Exam should be delayed because no examiner/s will be available because of the Dark Continent Expedition?
I really like to see the Next Hunter Exam. Because they will be using the chimera ant eggs right?
So there will be super rookies who will stand out in the exam
I really like to see them
Do you think HE is really Chairman Netero's son?
Not every Hunter wants to go outside, I believe.
Beans head doesn't look like a mascot. It is definitely his head.
What if the Dark Continent arc is going to be a deconstruction of the overdone 'New World' arcs? Imagine if the whole arc is about trying to get to the Outside and then Togashi just turns it on it's head and reveals 'WE ARE THE OUTSIDE!' :O
Also, it would be lame.
I know you can apply some Neverending Story logic in which the limits are inside, but it's a bit boring that an enclosed space ends to be the Outside World.
What I'm curious is how both worlds are separated...If it's only sea, then it's not a clear limit. But if there is something more, then things are a bit more interesting.
