Hunter x Hunter

4 years ago

I don't like anime. I don't like manga. I love Hunter x Hunter. It's intense storytelling, deep characterization (Gon, Killua, Knuckle, Shoot) compelling antagonists (Mereum, Nobunga) and emotion (Chimera Ants) are outside of this world. The Jen system is genius.

Any Hunter x Hunter fans around?

Hunter X Hunter is pretty complicated, imo.

A 12 year old boy named Gon from a small island starts becomes a Hunter (magical kungfu bounty hunter celebrity) in search of his deadbeat dad, who's one of the strongest Hunters in the world. It's really hard to explain. There is so much more to it then that, but  keeping this spoiler free.

It's a deconstruction of manga and anime. They author flips a lot of common tropes in anime. Unlike most manga, Gin isn't stronger than everyone else. He's very weak, because he's so young. The antagonists actually have personalities with more than one dimension. As the plot progresses, they actually grow. It's very well made, 5/7.

Weak main character, complex personalities, and changing looks as the story progresses.... Welp, Try Fairy Tail. (Yeah, not a typo. Tail, not tale.)

I haven't read the manga yet. How different is it(manga) from the anime?

Do you suggest that I read the manga as well?

I haven't read the manga. They're a little farther ahead into three next arc. The authOr has mental health problems. Sometimes he has tho take extended breaks. It's been two years since the  issue.
