togashi is literally a god  
by hiatusxhiatus
March 21st, 2019, 9:13pm
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0
i watched hxh (2011) in.. 2015? i didnt expect to like it, and wasnt sure of the appeal at first, but i found myself binge watching all 148 episodes in 2 weeks. my grades dropped, i was mildly(?) obsessed with it for like 2 entire years. one day i decided to read the manga, i started on the first chapter even though i already knew most of the story, and read every available chapter at the time. it's the kind of story you find yourself never wanting to end, its so full of potential and adventure, the characters' stories feel like they have their whole lives ahead of them that you want to see.
people say the art is awful, but it really isnt-- it's rushed often, and sloppy, and simple, but it's not bad. togashi is by no means a bad artist, and some of the panels that he had the time to put more work into are really beautiful and intricate. the volumes have updated art that is a lot neater if it really bothers you so much, and togashi's artstyle in my opinion is full of a certain charm i can't replicate.
the main appeal of hunter x hunter, to me, is the characters. my immediate favorite was killua, i first became attached to him because his personality was really endearing to me, and he later became my favorite character of all time due to how complex and well written he was. killua and gon's friendship has been said by many to be one of the greatest and most well-written in anime, and i have to wholeheartedly agree. they have a very realistic friendship, and it's very meaningful and impactful for both characters without just being used to have friendship powers save the day. the two characters complement each other and are foils of each other in more ways than one, and their relationship does have tension later on that makes sense for the characters and story and isnt just added to create drama and be edgy.
many think gon is a boring protagonist, and take him at face value, but what togashi really likes to do is deconstruct many shounen tropes. gon is a very clear deconstruction of the typical shounen protagonist, and if you pick up on foreshadowing and see him as you'd see a person rather than a "protagonist," i think you'll find him much more interesting and complex than you originally may have thought. his simplicity is his complexity, if that makes sense. people also forget that he's just a child, too.
the same can be said for leorio, another character many overlook and i'll admit i did too at first, but i've really grown to love him over time. he's a genuinely good guy, and he hasnt had as much of his story explored yet, but if you think about what we do know about him, he is much more remarkable than he seems.
kurapika is a character i also personally love. he is fixated on revenge and was a major inspiration for sasuke. a lot of ppl like him so i won't explain why i like him.
side characters are all pretty unique visually, conceptually, etc. there's a lot to love
villains are all interesting with the exception of some villains in one arc

tl;dr, the main four are all very likable (imo) and gon and killua are both very well written as is their relationship.
there's also the fact that it's very well thought out, in terms of the fighting system and everything. one con is that sometimes togashi will cover entire pages in text explaining things that just go in one ear and out the other, but once all these threads come together it forms something beautiful. so u gotta bear with it. but i will admit i've been kind of lost in the more recent chapters

(if you care, hxh also has a very good example of good trans representation in the character alluka, who is a trans girl, and there are several nonbinary and gnc characters. i'm not gonna pretend its amazing lgbt rep, though, and just be warned in the first arc there is a very transphobic moment in trick tower. it was made worse by the anime subtitles using a slur, and im not sure if the manga does as well, but i just wanted to warn anyone who might want ot avoid it. as far as i know that's the only instance of transphobia played as a joke. later there is some, but no slurs are used and the transphobic characters are condemned for it. there's also a character, hisoka, who is an antagonist and is the most heavily implied to be gay character in the series. he's also a pedophile. sooooo... yeah. just fair warning. i'm hoping togashi will add gay characters who aren't villains or pedophiles cuz otherwize............. i'm sure he wants to, as both he and his wife are very vocally supportive of the lgbt community and have included many lgbt characters in their respective manga)

i could go on forever about this manga. i'm so grateful to have read it, it will always have a special place in my heart.

Well HxH is the first manga I ever started reading so it's something special to me. I've been following it for 8-9 years now and I still haven't found an adventure story quite like this. Yeah there are a few close ones but I think HxH still tops the shounen department. Yes better than Naruto and Bleach but well maybe not One Piece (thank God for no long hiatuses!). Character development is amazing and the plot is just so interesting. You can tell Togashi has thought out the each of the arcs which are so intricately executed you feel like you've been hit behind the head quite often (meaning he's got some pretty wicked surprises). I love that throughout the series Togashi sensei has kept adventure as his prime theme and continues to keep the readers entertained with new powers/worlds which aren't as blown up as say DBZ. I'd be lying if I said I didn't mind the hiatuses (dman it) but I tolerate it because HxH is THAT good. I'd love to stop reading this but I can't help but keep coming back for more each time Togashi sensi releases new chapters even though I know he's gonna screw me over again in a couple of weeks.

Strong plot continuity

i have been reading this since 8th grade schooler. This is the best and easiest reference for beginner mangaka. The artwork that is. Now, ten years later, i'm still reading it (because the licensed version in my country just started about three years ago). Good luck Togashi-sensei in 'ruining' your work final story again. That was a joke. i hope he finish every possible plot left with deservable ending (soon.. or later). i rated 9.

CHOOSE ANIME OVER MANGA

There is no point in wasting time on this manga when you can watch 2011 anime version .Anime version is so awesome with one of the best anime music.Manga art is so aweful although it improves later(very very late ) . Only after you have completed anime do read manga chapters that are not made into anime.But even that would be futile because the manga is on permanent hiatus and it will never resume.

Read/Watch it if you haven't already. It's really a great story and deserves all the praise it gets. Even the earlier chapters that are more shounen-like have a shine to them that makes them more interesting than regular shounen.

I'd put off reading it cause of the hiatus and all the jokes about the hiatus but one day I thought "Let's do this!" and went through the whole manga. When I say whole manga, I meant literally sat and read straight through a 300+ chapter manga, even skipped a day of classes, it was that good. So yeah, now that that's done the hiatus isn't really bothering me that much. I had fun for my time invested so no salt here. If you have a similar attitude go for it.
The anime is also really good, I watched it over the summer. Except for one slightly important detail and smaller less important details that they didn't include, it's basically the manga animated. No beating around the bush with fillers.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
There are some major problems with this manga
1.TEXT there is so much text that it is like reading spawn or other awful american comics that was inspired by Chris Claremonts constant need to explain and tell everything in text instead of letting the artist do part of the job
2.Gon omg he is so annoying and easygoing up untill his friend "dies" then he turns into a hulk monster that will kill innocent bystanders and basically becomes an asshole to all his friends
3.so many characters get whole chapters dedicated to them that are just awful and uninteresting
same with explaning diffrent forms of Qi/chi/magic powers and diffrent stages of these said powers
that are then never mentioned again
4.there are basically 2 characters the readers like and want to read about Hisoka and Killua
and when we finally have more interesting characters like the King and Komugi they have to die by poison
the mangaka even brought back pointless characters like Kurapika and Leorio
thanks mangaka
i dont think there is 1fan of Leorio who wanted him back in this series
please kill him off the moment they set foot on the continent

okok
the art is also basically shit
it started out ok got weird and is basically shit now

Hunter x Hunter was like one of the first anime series that I watched. While I used to enjoy any anime, HxH has held me captivated by both the steady and intense pace, which was accompanied by well composed background music (I'm talking about the old version anime)..

I admit that I didn't read the manga, so I was literary surprised of how bad the art was (around chimera arc), but it gets better afterwards. I can't deny that the idea of the story is strong. The characters are great, their interactions are very natural. The pace is steady, each battle and fight are well told and especially well explored strategically. Plot is nice too, as HxH doesn't rely on good-bad guy concept. It lets the reader decide on that matter.

I can't really recommend to read this considering the bad art (I didn't start from manga as well), I instead recommend you to take the anime. If you have felt love for it and want to know more/ learn it's origin, you can then pick up this series and start to shape your patience to wait for the end of hiatus.

Man this is an amazing series. I was one of the later people to the game so i didnt know a lot about this but thanks to the 2011 anime i finally saw what i was missing man this was a great series. I love great action and adventure and especially when a series builds a whole new fantasy world with great abilities that are understandable and this series delivers. It was one of the few series that brought back the great feeling i had when first discovering DBZ or Naruto or Bleach and getting into it (before all the random bull of course). The story is great and refreshing and the mangas art might be bad at times (cause the author gets "sick" a lot) but it is made up for in the anime adaptation This series is a must read or much watch (considering the anime adaptation is way better imo) for any Shonen fan. However its a Huge Double edge sword so prepare for that cause the author will take you on the longest line wait of your life. IF you read any of these other more recent comments you know that this author busts Hiatuses so damn much. He even went in a long ass two year one, come back and did 9 chapters and went back recently.
Im soo pissed at the creator of this series. The whole situation is bull and if he really cant draw the whole thing himself then hire assistants and just draw or write the story board; but no he doesnt want that huh. At this point he has a responsibility to all his fans, editors and other producers that supported him and dedicated so much to his stuff so i just find him to be so fucked up how he treats it all, few ever get to his level and hes wasting it. I can understand him being sick but i feel like hes being stupid and stubborn as hell to not want to at least get help with his series so he can finish what he started and not put his fans through all this hiatus bull. I can promise you once he FINALLY finishes Hunter X Hunter, it will the last series i will EVER read from him. Im done with him and i hope he retires after Hunter x Hunter cause he doesnt deserve his fateful ass fans anymore. Its funny, i originally never watched the first anime or the manga but finally gave the 2011 anime version a chance (when i had nothing to do) and found out i was missing out on an amazing series; however little did i know this would be actually be a huge "double edged sword" on me cause now i have to endure all this crappy waiting like all his fans did and are still enduring. i dont regret watching/ reading HxH at all but but still i cant stand this author now.
And i wont give him another chance after this even though i know hes very talented, i mean very few authors can make one if not two great long running series; and he made two great series with this and Yuyu hakasho. So it does suck that i have to give up on this dude cause of his stubborn bull.

The art sucks, but damn it the story is GOOD

After reading Hunter x Hunter, I laugh when people say One Piece has weird or ugly art. HxH's art reaches a new level of strangeness, and half way through it just looks like the author stopped trying. Seriously, it looks like he spent 15 minutes doodling it out. What. The. Hell?

So, I watched the anime versions instead, which actually improved the manga!! The 1991? version expanded more on the characters, and the 2011 version follows the manga at a fast but steady pace. If not for the anime, I would have quit this manga a long time ago. No matter how good the story is (it's a masterpiece), THE ART HAS TO BE DECENT AT LEAST. I mean... come on. Togashi....Why do u do dis?

And secondly, the hiatus is way too long... and the new Dark Continent arc is kinda weird right now too...

It could be one of The Big 3

Ha!
I was 9 when i watched the anime and fell in love!
What is Togashi's problem actually? His illness that makes this series turn into Hiatus X Hiatus?
Actually I do believe that if he didnt pause to draw this manga back then, and did it continuesly, it will be one of The Big 3 of Shonen Jump. It has the potential!


(give it 9 rating due to the slow progress...)
