    Eyepatch wolf, i despise you for getting me hooked on this series knowing that it will never get a proper conclusion. You just had to get me hooked right at the mother of all hiatus'. I want to die. This is your fault.

              I stopped watching during the ant arc since I hate bugs, but this convinced me to go back

                              You clearly haven't seen Dragon Ball Z recently enough. Kakarot was NOT kickin butt right off episode 1. In fact, he got destroyed and his son taken by his brother. Kakarot, gohan, piccolo, krillin, yamcha do NOT win 90% of their battles. Most of the time they get killed. Freiza was one of the most well introduced villians, android 19, androids 18 and 17, and Cell were some of the best villian introductions of all time. Freiza never saw Goku as a threat and was not a wall for him to overcome, frieza had different goals that conflicted with the other characters. Androids had conflicting motives (some of the best analysis of what it means to be human, what would happen if we made artificial intelligence stronger than us) And not to mention Vegeta, best character development of all time. His entire build up was textbook show don't tell, depicting him as a heartless warrior that has overcome all. Only later is it revealed that he was fighting for his life, temporarily submitting himself, his pride, to a stronger being so that he can survive, get stronger, and eventually avenge his entire race. it takes 70 episodes before it is revealed that he faced an immense internal turmoil, asking if it is worth it to sacrifice his pride, what he is, to live. Then asks the plebian that defeted him to defeat his real enemy, so that no one else will turn out like him. The facade of pride falls and we see past the saiyan mask, and see his weakness.

                                    I hate when people say hunter x hunter is a deconstruction shonen as it came out before most shonen. How can you deconstruct something that hasn't truly been realised?

                                    Hunter x hunter has always been extremely ahead of its time this is why its incredibly important to read the newest manga as I'm sure anime in the next 10 years will have similar themes.

                                    • Tá m'árthach foluaineach lán d'eascanna

                                      Hunter X Hunter is a really good show, solid 8/10 imho. Until it gets to the Chimera Ant arc. Then it shits the bed, and I feel a 2/10 is incredibly generous for that stinking heap of shit. It boggles my fucking mind that people constantly rate it as one of the best arcs in all of anime. I seriously wish I could reach through my screen and grab that fucking narrator by the throat and throttle the cunt. How many times do we need to be told the same thing episode after episode after episode after episode after episode. Im not sure what age group it is targetted at in Japan, but if its kids over about 9 or 10, they should seriously feel it is an insult to their intelligence.

                                                  i dunno i think hxh's biggest flaw is how togashi feels the need to add pedos (a.k.a. hisoka and palm) lmao. i love the show/manga but it's unnecessarily triggering to see hisoka prey on gon (and sometimes killua).

                                                    Watched this show a month ago. Love the character development.

                                                    First few episodes Gon literally jumps off a ship, risking his life and his placement on the hunter exam, to save the dude mopping the deck.

                                                    Less than 10 episodes in, everyone getting massacred left and right in the Hunter exam and Gon doesn't do shit. Legit just stares while someone is begging for help in episode 8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2Gl0j5ndI4.

However, I do feel like one of the reasons why HxH is such a fantastic series is because it subverts expectations - and it does so in a satisfying, coherent way.

                                                                        I liked this video, I always enjoy an analysis on something I can relate to.

                                                                        But I see three majors flow with this video ;
                                                                        1 : Gon is **not** just a regular dude. His father (and most recently in the scans, his lineage) is perceived as exceptionnal.
                                                                        2 : He had access to ressources that are **extraordinary** due to his status or sheer narrative luck
                                                                        3 : When he fails, it gets him stronger, not weaker, and that entails an inherent character strenght that cannot be expected from most other characters

                                                                        It's prolematic, because it suggets that there's a need a racial, social,or political need to be superior to the rest to be able to shine out. And while that would be a comforting idea for some, it removes any hope that **anybody** could be Gon without some efforts.

                                                                        He's still a kind of a monster to anyone in this world that wasn't brought up in this world like most of them were. Gon didn't lose anything worth mentionning in his path to the greatness he attained, and he surely had less efforts ton perform to get there.

                                                                        • Alien Barnacle

Kirito himself explains it in the very scene you use. he admits the system is unfairly in his favor because it's an MMO based off an unlimited number system where the higher that number, the more unfairly you can outmatch someone lower than you. In SAO it's simply due to his level and abilities being better. if I recall correctly, Kirito has a battle healing skill that heals him faster than these players can deal damage to him. Kirito HIMSELF calls it unfair, but he also had an unfair advantage that he admits he, well, took advantage of. I'll argue for SAO all day because anime noobs hate on it when all of their criticisms come from anime "reviewers" on youtube.

It was just boring to the point where i actually fell a sleep only to wake up and notice gon was figthing the main battle against that dude. For those wondering yes i do have a sleeping problem but usually i cant seem to fall asleep.

                                                                                That's good script writing.

                                                                                  I don't know if I agree with the characterization that Gon is just a regular kid in contrast to the powered-up heroes of other shonin. He is the son of maybe the strongest character in the series, and as mentioned and showed off repeatedly, his latent potential is pretty much unprecedented. He is in some sense a child of prophecy as well. I mean his father basically manipulated situations so that Gon became stronger, became a hunter, and eventually finds him...10 years before the show started. I mean there are multiple characters that have been anticipating their interactions with Gon for years as a result of Ging. I think what transpires in HunterxHunter is what happens when you take a relatively typical shonin protagonist, and put him in a world with very little regard to his status as such. While multiple characters acknowledge Gon's exceptionality, that doesn't influence the way they, or the world interact with Gon. The King would've murdered Gon given the opportunity; if the phantom troupe felt that killing Gon would've been to their benefit he would be dead. Doesn't matter how special he is, or how badly he wants to find his Dad, the world that they live in is often cold and uncaring. Gon's heart becomes increasingly exposed to this darkness and it culminates in his fight with Pitou, where he almost becomes an antagonist of sorts. The hero and the villain switch roles where Gon acts in a traditionally cruel way and Pitou is selfless, vulnerable, and borderline empathetic. I think that is where the real beauty of hunterxhunter comes together.

And no I never mentioned thats sales what were what dictated ratings. Sales and popularity are different from a ranking system of depth and quality that an anime series offers. Hunter hunter is ranked the third HIGHEST point ranking system in quality anime, nothing to do with sales and popularity. Look I’m just trying to help but if you don’t believe me suit yourself 🤷‍♀️
