Thread: Hunter x Hunter II

    Default Re: Hunter x Hunter (still on Hiatus)

    I don't really think it's that big of a deal whether Togashi had planned or not planned the Chimera Ant story. He's got enough elements and plot threads layered throughout the series that he can build the Hunter world for years. The only problem is whether he will stick the landing. The way I view Hunter X Hunter is it's Togashi's manifesto of how to write a shonen series, he takes tropes that have become cookie-cutter standards of the genre and then pushes these elements into a more smarter and sometimes painfully real direction. Maybe I just revel in this form of shonen deconstruction, but a part of me likes the idea of Togashi looking at the mass "new world" hysteria that has consumed Jump and thinking "sure why not". My only criticism with the whole dark continent angle is that by opening the world up this dramatically the overarching stories that have been building up for the past billion years may not have that same punch to them depending on whether the Hunter world is actually existing on a microcosm of the real world.

    I thought people know Otsuka Akio from his voicing of Solid Snake and Marshall D Teach, not some live action voiceover.

    Mamoru Miyano as Chrollo Lucilfer - Kiba from Wolf's Rain, mite b cool
    Romi Park
    as Pakunoda - she's Hitsugaya and Komatsu, I thought Pakunoda had kinda deep voice for a woman
    Hidenobu Kiuchi as Franklin - Nero from OP, I totally wouldn't match the 2 characters together based on their voice but who knows
    Kenn as Phinks - Takimaru from Toriko, I dunno he's got a soft voice..kinda, dunno how it'll turn out
    Akio Ohtsuka as Uvogin - Blackbeard, good choice
    Kappei Yamaguchi as Feitan - Haha Usopp with a cold psychopatic voice? I'm interested

    I'm very iffy on Chrollo Lucifer's VA.

    Okabe from Steins;Gate? Kida for Durarara and Takuto from Star Driver? I'll be very interested in where he goes with this.

    Be interested with how Yamaguchi will do Feitans voice.

    Romi Park seems an odd choice, I've always imagined Pakunoda with more of a mature voice...not Edward Elric.

    Maybe I'm being paranoid but I'm worrying about the pacing of this anime. Yorkshin arc starts soon, that leaves all of yorkshin, GI, and CA (admittedly a long ass arc) to animate before catching up to where the manga is. Even if Togashi does a 30 chapter run every year I don't think he'll finish enough arcs to keep a good padding lead for the manga from where the anime is

    We're up to chapter 60 of 340 with episode 35. At the pacing we're going at right now, we're talking nearly 200 episodes before we're all caught up.

    There is quite a ways to go yet! Plus,

    It's not like there's anything stopping them from having the anime take seasons off or using filler.
    And the anime could easily end at the place where the manga has stopped for now if it was necessary.
    At any rate, there's a LOT of material left to get through first.

    Hunter X Hunter does have a lot of good chances for anime filler. But I suppose we'll worry about that when we need to cross that bridge.

    If I'm right he is also Bartholomew Kuma.

    It dawned at me recently - if Pitou would've also managed to give his cells to the King, then he probably would've negated the poison in himself with the preserving and repairing ability. And possibly repaired any damage from age, thus staying forever healthy. Add here Yupi's power and Pufu's spiritual message and picture gets chilling. He was planned as a perfect being, without a doubt. What a fiend he was.

    ...sounds like a question for Togashi.

    It's pitou's fault for pissing Gon off.

    So was there no HxH episode this week or have I just not been looking hard enough?

    The wikipedia episode guide is starting to lag behind so I can't trust it completely..

    I read somewhere there was a break because soccer(EURO 2012) took over its time slot, dunno how accurate that is.

    Which of course leaves the question, why the king didn't devour his guards right away (as he was completely unscrupolous anyways at that time).
