Hate to be the 2011 fag, but it was 2011 that got me into HxH. I am very glad though I read Chapter 1 before I started the anime, at the time (early 2014) I was in the habit of sampling the first chapters (offered for free by Viz) of series before I started watching, I've always been more of an anime guy than a manga one though. Since then I've reread the series & been keeping up with the current arc. I know 2011 gets a lot of hate around here, but it did bring a lot more attention to a series that deserves it.

Chimera Ant Arc is definitely my favorite arc. While I had loved pretty much the whole thing from the start (I know some don't like Hunter Exam, but even back then it was a lot of good shounen fun, with great characters & a slightly ominous world building - Netero was great) and my impressions strengthened with each arc, (Heavens Arena - Yorknew - Greed Island - marathoned each of those arcs in chunks over school breaks, like I watched Hunter Exam & Zoldyck Family over Feb break, Heavens Arena & Yorknew April break back to back, then marathoned Greed Island as soon as school got out, and then watched CA over the course of two weeks, just in time to catch up with the anime as it began the Election Arc) the CA Arc elevated the series to my absolute favorite (at the time) and easily my favorite battle shounen.

I could write a lot about Chimera Ant, but it is without question still my favorite battle shounen arc of all time.

Its reputation and the internet generally, pic related and everybody always naming Gon's father as one of the most hated anime characters of all time. I thought he was gonna do something really horrible to Gon and friends. Catcjomg up on the current chapters, started at a lucky time with it just picking back up I guess
>What's your favourite thing about HxH?
I liked the ruthlessness/brutality of it, like when the Spiders mercilessly gun everybody down or during the CA arc where Ponzou, the guy with bow and arrow and Kite were completely brutally BTFO, and Gon being an absolute madman who actualy suffers the consequence.

My favorite thing about HxH would be very hard to pin down, but I feel like its characters, structure, themes, etc are all just incredibly memorable and well-done. Overall the series leaves me with a strong longing for adventure, though through a palpably different style from my other favorite battle shounen, One Piece. Ging's chat with Gon at the end of the election arc has to be one of my favorite moments among many.

There are way too many characters to pick a favorite really, but I do love the GonxKillua dynamic which runs through the heart of some of the best arcs (Hunter Exam, Zoldyck Family, Heaven's Arena, Greed Island, Chimera Ant, Election). Honestly, those two probably are my favorite, just for how their dynamics/development go, how it ties into the larger story.

As an ideal I find Ging to be one of the most inspiring characters, but again he's not quite a favorite character. Much as I love his sparring mindgames with Pariston & his scene with Gon, we still haven't really spent enough time to get to know him.

>What got you into Hunter X Hunter?
I found it pretty hard to get into actually. I made the mistake of listening to the hype of die-hard fans, who made me think it was a towering work of genius, but it isn't really. It's a sort of clever take on the genre that's hard to appreciate at face value, and it took me awhile to get that. I think HxH doesn't really stand on its own as a story until Yorknew, and it took me a lot of attempts to get that far into the story.
>What's your favourite thing about HxH?
Funnily enough, one of the things I found irritating about it before is now one of the things I like: how it will resolve cliched battle shounen conflicts with anticlimaxes. I don't know whether this is due to me "getting" HxH now or just my tastes shifting in general, because I can't hardly stand to read battle shounens anymore so I like how HxH avoids the tedium of the genre by just skipping fights most of the time.
>Favorite arc?
Greed Island, but I tend to like the lighthearted, lower stakes arcs in series like HxH.
>Your favorite character?
Tough call. I really like Killua, but I find his whole family oddly charming. Just the blase way they treat their profession.

Honestly, Togashi playing with anticlimax and reversing the single-minded approach of many battle shounen plots is one of the best aspects of Hunter x Hunter.

Its magical system is consistent and the world works believably enough. A lot of fantasy worlds, specifically in anime, would be really cool if they decided to have their world and not be completely retarded, but surprisingly HxH is one of the few series of the many I've seen where this holds true. The storytelling, characters, etc. are all well above average but its the well sculpted world and atmosphere that brings it all together IMO.

HxH definitely feels more like a pet project than anything else, it's not something that's been workshopped to death by a bunch of editors like a lot of WSJ's other mainline titles. That weird, offbeat feeling to it makes it kind of hard to get into in my experience, but gives it a distinct charm. Also I feel that by avoiding gratuitous fight scenes it gives the violence he puts in a lot more punch, especially when it tends to be far more deadly than most battle shounen fights.

>What got you into Hunter X Hunter?
My mate recommended the 2011 version to me back when i was a huge wanpissfag in 2013. became completely obsessed and binged all 100 episodes that were out at the time in like a week (i think it was up to killua vs those dart throwing ants when i caught up). read all the manga that was out from there and followed the 2011 as it finished.

>What's your favourite thing about HxH?
The emphasis on intelligence gathering and proper planning when it comes to fights. HxH is the only series i can think of where knowing a slight extra detail of how your opponent's power works beforehand makes or breaks the fight. it also helps that unlike one piece or naruto or whatever, the characters have realistic, believable endurances once aura is factored in, otherwise it would basically just be an aura size contest.

>Favorite arc?
Chimera, just because it was a fascinating look into the absolute top of the hunter world. we got a glimpse of what it looks like when the strongest hunters take on the strongest prey, which will serve as a great reference for the rest of the series before Togashi dies in a few years

>Your favorite character?
of the main four, Kurapika because he has the coolest Hatsu and an engaging character arc.

favourite villain would have to be Phinks, he seems like a cool guy apart from the massacring a bunch of children so he could sell their eyes on the black market.

My favourite non-villain/non-protagonist would have to be Morel. Great character design, has my favourite hatsu, very likeable personality and all his fights were very entertaining.

>Nefertem (/?n?f?r?t?m/; possibly "beautiful one who closes" or "one who does not close"; also spelled Nefertum or Nefer-temu) was, in Egyptian mythology, originally a lotus flower at the creation of the world, who had arisen from the primal waters.[2] Nefertem represented both the first sunlight and the delightful smell of the Egyptian blue lotus flower, having arisen from the primal waters within an Egyptian blue water-lily, Nymphaea caerulea. Some of the titles of Nefertem were "He Who is Beautiful" and "Water-Lily of the Sun", and a version of the Book of the Dead says:

>Nefertem was eventually seen as the son of the creator god Ptah, and the goddesses Sekhmet and Bast were sometimes called his mother. In art, Nefertem is usually depicted as a beautiful young man having blue water-lily flowers around his head. As the son of Bastet, he also sometimes has the head of a lion or is a lion or cat reclining. The ancient Egyptians often carried small statuettes of him as good-luck charms.

The 2011 anime. Honestly, I heard about episode 131 and needed context. Binged the series in a couple of weeks.

How it subverts cliches realistically. If the Chimera Ant arc was handled by any other author, Gon would be the one to fight Meruem. I also like the Nen system, which prevents power creep akin to other series. You have fighters with simple Nen but who know how to use it well (Gon, Hisoka) and others with complicated rules which they have learned to use to the best of their abilities (Chrollo, Kurapika).

>Favorite arc?
Chimera Ant for the character interactions and the sheer unpredictability of things. Greed Island for how Togashi thought out the game system. Prince arc may be a contender when it ends.

Morel. Guy was running on 40% for the whole palace invasion and still was a reliable bro. Pakunoda is a close second, just due to her loyalty to the Troupe.

Characters and themes. Most of the characters have small and/or subtle details that go a great way towards humanizing them in a way most of its genre peers lack. Togashi also likes to distinguish his arcs with a glaring theme that make them extremely distinct from one another - for better or worse.

Oh. Well, obviously, he's the main antagonist of the arc. The entire succession war was written around him. The arc could've just been about him if Togashi wanted to make it simpler, but he likes making every arc complex.

I'm fairly certain all Hatsu types are hereditary. I think Hisoka's personality assessment is accurate in that it predicts the personality one inherits from their family, but since personality also has a large environmental component, that change in personality lures him in the wrong direction.

>What got you into Hunter x Hunter
Read the manga about a decade ago.
>What's your favorite thing about Hunter x Hunter?
The series is unrestrained. One arc is about a rather morally questionable exam; one arc is about a nen created video game; you have a subarc where characters are learning the tricks and trade of appraisal, scamming, and auctioning; an arc where Togashi invented an entire species of creatures with a fictional mechanism of high speed evolution, then outlined the psychological and societal impacts this had on said species; and a current subarc involving a murder mystery plot. If Togashi weren't constantly willing to experiment, I wouldn't have this level of sustained interest.

Another appeal has been that his main characters tend to play minor roles with respect to the conflicts they're involved in, which helps keep a good sense of tension throughout.
>Favorite arc?
Chimeria Ant arc. There's some issues I could bring up, but they don't matter much to me.
>Your favorite character?
Meruem. His character arc of going from an Ant-supremacist of sorts to still being one but with more sympathy towards humans had its emotional resonances with me. It also reflects a realistic progression of someone going from a naive view of the world to a slightly less one, which are not for reasons that are all together rational, but personal in nature.

>> No.169249618

He's isolated, his underlings aren't loyal, and his guardian beast doesn't seem to have a very ruler oriented ability. He'll be more of a problem than Cammy, but he's no where near the threat Ben, Halkenberg and even Zhang are currently, no matter how strong and intelligent he is as an individual.

Honestly, I'm loving this arc but really with how intense/chaotic the set-up for this scenario was, I am slightly disappointed that things haven't gone nearly as much to shit as I thought they would.

As power levels and explosions rise, tactics and unique abilities become less important.

>What got you into Hunter X Hunter?
/a/ has been shilling it for years so I thought it was ironic. It wasn't until I watched this video on Facebookthat I got curious about HxH. It's a parody video of shounen fights and HxH, One Piece and Ippo were the ones where the "mc" wins. Since I still love OP and Ippo I picked HxH up.
>What's your favourite thing about HxH?
Like other anons said, I like how Togashi isn't afraid of completely changing dynamics every arc. Sometimes it doesn't work, but it takes balls to throw in 20+ new, foreign characters on a voyage everyone was sure would last only some chapters until the hyped DC arc begins. As well as spending years not showing popular characters because they don't fit on that part of the story, instead of giving in to readers' wishes and fucking up his writing. It's also one of the only manga where I actually like the infodump even during fights.

>What got you into Hunter X Hunter?
I’d always been interested in it but never got around to reading it until I saw the shitposting about Chrollo vs. Hisoka when the first chapter of that dropped, and I figured it was a massive occurrence so I thought I may as well jump in then. Wish I’d done it earlier, finished it in three weeks because I didn’t want to rush it so I went a volume a day, and loved it all the way.
>What's your favourite thing about HxH?
Dunno, everything about it is just executed well which is enough for me, I don’t care about genre or demographic as long as a story accomplished what it set out to do in a satisfying way. If I had to pick I’d say the characters, they’re all quirky and over the top but also have enough grounded elements to them to make the OTT stuff work.
>Favorite arc?
Chimera Ants. The first half I honestly didn’t enjoy much the first time but the payoff was well worth it and I love it more every time I reread it, but that’s also true for the whole series. The current arc has potential too, all the new characters are well characterised and endearing within only a few panels or pages, which is a testament to how Togashi really upped his game in terms of writing to justify the hiatuses.
>Your favorite character?
I couldn’t say honestly, I like almost all of them and whenever I think I have a favourite someone else pops into my mind and I get conflicted.

When I was a tiny kid I'd always thumb through the Shounen Jump at the local drug store and one day when I was in third grade I really dug the first chapter of HxH and I ended up asking my mom to buy that SJ for me.

It's the only SJ volume I own and it's somewhere at my parents house but I fell so in love with the kid who was like in tune with all the creatures in his local forest that I bought every volume on release for like the rest of my life.

My favorite thing about the series is how it kinda grew up with me? I got to watch it really grow from Shounen to Seinen and it's never really dipped in quality for me.

Favorite arc will probably have to be Chimera because I remember I gave up on it as a kid, like I wasn't a KID anymore but I remember seeing the dudes brain being dissected and was like yeah wow too much for me right now but got back in a few years later and it was such a satisfying end.

Togashi is an incredible storyteller. I love everything about HxH's structure- an incredible cast of characters that he isn't afriad to swap in and out as MC's depending on what direction he want's the story to go. Each arc has its own new feeling, but the progression into it is natural as one event leads to the next.
My other favorite thing is Togashis central themes which leads me to-
>Favorite arc?
- Chimera Ant arc. Honest to god I believe it to be the best arc in all of anime/manga, even if the pacing is sometimes shit (less so in the manga). How it manages to throw you off with how ruthless NGL is by comparison to Greed Island, the narrative parallels of good and evil with Gon and Meruem as an allegory for the good/monstrosity of humanity, the character parallels of the devoted Pitou/Killua, the sickass fights. Meruem and Komugi's gungi games that viz anon was posting the other day, so good. The culmination of Gons character arc. Everything about it is sublime. Im blessed with a shit memory so every few years i go back and rewatch not quite for the first time, but it always packs a punch.

It just generally really baffles me that this series still goes the way it does. Togashi releases like two chapters a year and still somehow makes enough money to live off of? Forget the money, in fact, why does Jump even let him have this kind of release schedule? Did YYH really have such great success that he got a free pass to run the ship however he wants for as long as he wants?
Seriously, halfassed scribbles being published every 4 months. Not to say this series isn't fun, I do enjoy it, but it's just baffling.

Have you seen the latest selling numbers? HxH shited all over other mangas, that's all that matters to WSJ.

>What got you into Hunter X Hunter?
i watched the 1999 anime as a kid on tv only to drop it and pick up the manga a few years later, it left quite an impression mostly due to the sense of adventure i felt from it
>What's your favourite thing about HxH?
the world building, narrative and characters i love the darker moments the serie has, like pitou interrogating pokkle and some scenes from the yorkshin arc
>Favorite arc?
its hard to pick, i prefer yorkshin as a whole, but chimera ants is better at its peak
>Your favorite character?
hisoka morrow

JoJo and Naruto are definitely gayer, they just have less cute boys.

There's like 11 Specialists now and 20 Manipulators and Conjurers. Just like bloodline limits in Naruto or Logias in One Piece, it makes sense for the gifted people to be overrepresented, because the normies aren't as novel for the readers.

People say things like that about lots of manga or books or TV shows, but I don't really comprehend it. You read or watch something. You like it. You wait until the next one. That's all. I mean, do the math, you spend probably less than 10 minutes reading your favorite every week or sometimes two. What do you do between those releases? Sit in the dark waiting? No, you go about your fucking life until the next one comes out. Why does it matter if it's a week or a year?

Now, I personally have lost interest in a series while waiting for releases, but that's because I wasn't that interested to begin with. I didn't run to the fans and ask them how they "waited" all this time, they'd wait their whole lives as long as they liked the series. Do you stop liking your favorite series after it ends?
