Okay, this is the discussion thread for all you lovers of the HxH manga (like me). To start things off, here's some info about the series to those who are new to it:

Summary version 1:
Many people in the world aspire to be hunters, for either the fame, wealth or special privileges. However, it is said that only one in hundreds of thousands can pass the test to be a qualified hunter. Gon’s journey to become such a hunter, and to find his father, who is acknowledged as the greatest hunter in the world, begins. Along the way, he befriends Killua, a member of a renowned assassin family, Kurapica, who is determined to become a Blacklist Hunter to capture the criminals responsible for his tribe’s deaths, and Lerio, who aspires to be a doctor.
v2:
In an alternate world, there are terrible creatures and vast lands and treasures to explore. Resulting from this, there are constant threats to humanity, and those people that contain these threats are called hunters.

Gon is a small boy on a small island, who has been taken care of his aunt ever since his father left him to become a hunter. But like all young children, Gon has big ambitions, and sets out on a great journey to become a hunter, and to find the dad he never met.

Expect lots of slapstick humor and thrilling action in this lighthearted manga about a young boy taking his first steps into the grand world.
Details About The Series: Ongoing at 22 or 23 volumes (at about 255 chapters). However, the author is sick, thus causing there to be long breaks between some of the chapters and the art quality of some of the later chapters to be poor.
It's also a Shonen manga, so ages 13 and up.

Re: Hunter x Hunter

I use to read and watch this religously until the mangaka decided to stop for weeks on end, and when he DID draw it was scribbles... I know he's sick, but for some reason he gets really SICK when a new popular game comes out... something fishy about that. Plus he's married to Sailor Moon, so it's not like he needs any cash, more like a hobby or something to him now.

Anyways, my favorite character is Kirua and the Green Island arc is GENIUS :ossu

Re: Hunter x Hunter

Dooes Kirua=Killua? If so, he's my favorite character too. :amuse

And it's called the Greed Island arc; not Green Island (I used to think that too. But it turns out the game, and the arc, is called Greed Island.). And I also liked that arc. Gon's fight with Bomber was awesome. :amuse

Oops ya, a few typos there :p. I totally knew it was greed and killua, but ya- totally spaced it (it's been a while)

I also love those characters in the genryuudan

Re: Hunter x Hunter

*Genei Ryuudan. XD
And the reason I believed the typo with Killua was the whole Japanese r/l thing; meaning that he could be called Kirua too (and I thought that was what you were doing, since the typo just happened to turn out like that).

And as for the GR, I've got to say that I liked Hisoka the best, even though he was just a fake and isn't part of them any more.

well ya, it is kirua, but I remember seeing it in english too....

and ya- damn I totally messed up all names. I'll stop here... now :p
Hisoka is awesome~ I liked all of them with their powers, but I've always wanted to see Hisoka go all out, he always just toys with his opponents never really going serious. I wonder if he'll do that with the King ant person...

Re: Hunter x Hunter

Well, anyways, I've read up to Vol. 18 so far. I should really get up to date first (but I guess I'm going to do that with the "The Law Of Ueki" anime first).

Re: Hunter x Hunter

Yeah one of my favorite manga too. I was kind of surprised to see it come out in consecutive weeks to start off the new year. Well I hope this is a new trend especially since I heard that the mangaka acknowledged his faults on a Sailor Moon website and that he hoped to be more reliable and consistent this coming year.

I'm really looking forward to seeing where it goes with Gon and Kirua in the upcoming arcs. I would also like to see how he develops Kurapica and especially that doctor hunter guy. Its kind of hard to believe that this manga came out before Naruto with it being aout 30 chapters behind and still on its 5th arc. There is still much to be seen regarding the characters back stories and the hunter world.

Re: Hunter x Hunter

It sure is a long wait for the Chimera Arc so it sometimes makes me doubt if it's even going to come out since Greed Island was finished in 2004 and Chimera Arc isn't complete yet. Well my hopes for it to be animated are still high so I shouldn't doubt it's release but for some reason I do doubt which kinda sucks that mixed feeling.

Re: Hunter x Hunter

Oh I love this manga, very very much! the characters are so well made, and its not always about solving problems through fighting. Oh its so a clever type of manga. And the nen system is very fantastic, its probably the best battle power type system created in all of manga. Its a shame though that the mangaka is sick, the chapter releases are quite horribly drawn, however, the volumes are very awesome. He redrew almost everything and added some other art and it looks sooo awesomeness.

Favourite character Kuroro Lucifer, Feitan, Hisoka and Illumi.[br]Posted at: February 01, 2006, 11:42:20 PM_________________________________________________I heard that HXH is going to stop again. The mangaka is taking a 2 month break. :(

Re: Hunter x Hunter

HXH rocks. But it took me a long time to get used to the style of drawing/writing of Togashi. But now I really love its minimalistic ways.
Can't wait to see more of the Genei Ryodan, Hisoka vs Gon... And ultimately Ging Freecs

not 100% sure tho, someone else said it translated to that

Re: Hunter x Hunter

Hi!

I just caught up with the Hunter x Hunter anime, and I was wondering what chapter starts the next arc (which I've read is the Chimera arc or something?) and where I can find Edited Mangas for download. Thanks for anyone who can help me.

Re: Hunter x Hunter

The only place I know off that has all the Edited Mangas of the Chimera Ant Arc is IRC.
That arc starts in volume 18; not exactly sure what chapter though.

Re: Hunter x Hunter

I was wondering why the manga just went to a really poor quality all of a sudden. I thought it was a special like "see what the manga looks like before its final". I had no idea that the artist was really publishing it. (if I was his editor, I’d throw the pages away and say to it over! >O Well... not really, but I’d ask to please do better.) On top of him being sick too. Man... he better not just quit drawing. He started this manga and owes it to the fans to finish it.
