Hunter X Hunter by Togashi (spoilers)

Post by Storygamer88 » 14 Jun 2017, 17:49

Anyone read this and a fan too? Its a very popular anime and manga series, and for anime, it and Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood are generally regarded as the two best Shonen titles with some very mature, deep themes and ideas/plots.

Its my favorite manga/anime series overall, and I'm excited for its return next week in the weekly manga magazine Shonen Jump. My favorite character is either Hisoka or Killua, but I love lots of the characters and plotlines.

I absolutely love this manga / anime it's one of my all time favourites and I am so happy that it's back. I am waiting until they release a few more series, then afterwards I can sit back relax and fully immerse myself into this work of art.

I am a fan of manga, haven't read this one yet. I might just look into it.

I have followed the anime series since it was first released in 1999, and then when it was rebooted in 2011. I have also picked up the story by reading the manga, right at the point where the anime ended. I think it's a very good story overall, but the Chimera Ant arc really lost me. Things did get dark pretty quickly - and suddenly - in there, and from news releases, it seemed like it was related to the physical condition of the author at that period. It took me a lot of convincing to rewatch and finally read the series, but when I did, I started to appreciate the value of the plot and structure that the author had laid out. The manga is a must-read for fans of RPG and fantasy.

My only gripe about getting drawn to Hunter x Hunter is the seemingly endless hiatus. I feel like since the mangaka was ill, he should have put it off indefinitely so he could recover completely, rather than eke out a could chapters every couple of months.

Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood is one of my favorite anime of all time :) Hunter X Hunter is also good. My only problem with Hunter is that the author tends to take a lot of long breaks. I understand the author has his own personal issues, but it's really difficult to wait long for next chapters. I'm glad the manga is back again though.

And Killua is also my absolute fave. For FMA, I love Mustang.
