I'm a Japanese, so please excuse my English. I ignore a lot of small changes, and want to talk about the cause. Speaking from the conclusion, the notable differences are the following, I think: Original Manga's Progress Broadcasting Station Main Target 1. Original Manga's Progress Togashi is working now. That's all. 2. Broadcasting Station Fuji TV is ...

In the past, the reasons cited for HxH hiatuses have usually been "ill health", "research", and "mangaka circumstances". Most of it, however, is said to fall under "mangaka circumstances". This site (jp) tracks all of them. Seeing as to how HxH and Yu Yu Hakusho have been such hits, the mangaka, Yoshihiro Togashi, has gained a fair bit of clout at Shonen ...

Short answer: There is little or no canonical love from either Killua or Gon toward the other. If any kind of love is to be clearly deduced, it should be regarded as platonic or brotherly. Longer answer: From childhood, Killua was deprived of the experience of having friends. He met Canary, a guardian of the Zoldyck estate, and wished to be her friend, but ...

With what I have seen in the anime, this should sum up all the rules and factors. The objective is to capture the king. The game is played on a single color 9x9 board. The game starts with a empty board The players take turns placing stones, limited to the first 3 rows of the board on your side of the field After all the pieces are placed, the players take ...

Before the royal guard was born, the chimera ants became aware of humans with 'excessive life force' (a.k.a. nen) and the queen ordered them to hunt down any nen users that were in the area for her consumption. We know that there were hunters in the country at the time, like Ponzu and Pokkle's group etc. We can assume that the queen consumed these hunters ...

Oh! I figured it out! It took me awhile searching through a few series I thought it might have been. I thought it could have been a minor Neo-Nazi or Czech S.S. character from Monster, the Comrade “villain” from Gun X Sword, the perfectionist character from the last story arc in The Twelve Kingdoms, or one of the rich & borderline-insane old men from ...

According to the Hunter x Hunter wiki, the corresponding manga chapter for episode 148 is chapter 338 and 339. Some specific plot points to consider: Gon's friends Killua and Alluka have already departed Gon from the previous episode, 147. This happens in chapter 338. Gon climbs up the World Tree and meets Ging. This happens in chapter 338. Ging explains ...

Unfortunately, this question cannot be answered right now. When Gon was younger, Mito told him that both of his parents were dead. However, it is later found out that it was a lie, because his father Ging was obviously alive and well. Before the Greed Island Arc, Gon got a tape from Ging. At the end of the tape, when Ging was going to tell him about his ...

I highly guess they made that up to convert this scene into a less violent type for the younger-age audience. In the actual manga, this was what it looked like: You can see that the arm is chopped off but with no flower petals whatsoever and judging by the angle, the blood is ought to be seen. They probably did not want to reveal that part and instead took ...

During the hunter exam Gon followed Ponzu's scent and he was also aware of her bee breeding ability. so we can assume that he understood from the moment they received the letter.

Kurapika's scarlet eyes allow him to shift from becoming a Conjurer to a Specialist because of their unique nature. This ability, Emperor Time, allows him to utilize all the types of Nen to 100% efficiency. Kurapika has a Nen blade chain wrapped around his heart. Kurapika imposed a limitation onto this chain, it can only be used to deal with members of the ...

Actually, the Hunter x Hunter wiki addresses this, and is quite accurate in its assessment, though the references cite the wrong volumes (but correct chapters). There is considerable confusion about Alluka's gender. Two of Alluka's brothers, Illumi and Milluki, refer to Alluka as their brother. But Killua, the closest brother of Alluka, specifically ...

I've done some searching about the names like this, and I wasn't able to find any particular explanation. Some people say it's just for style, other argue that the × is another form of "vs" (which kind of makes some sense), or "and" (like &), or "with". (Not to mention that it might also mean "kisses" like in "xoxo" = "hugs and kisses", but that's most ...

Well, these aren't the official rules but a bunch of forum members across Japan developed functional fan rules: http://mmmmalo.tumblr.com/post/74510568781/rules-of-gungi Enjoy!

Hisoka is a psycho that only seek for strong opponents to fight. He saw a real potential in Gon since they met (Killua too , Leorio and Kurapika too) and just want him not to die until he becomes a monster worth to confront. And yes , for psychos , the pleasure they find in their... "activities" are orgasms-like. Remember just what Hisoka had to do only ...

It's rather hard to say, as we see only a few clips of the game. However, it seems that the game is some variation of Cheat, where players play cards face down and tell others what card they played. The catch is that they are allowed to lie. The goal is to get rid of all your hand cards. There are few details to pinpoint a specific variant, but it seems ...

Hunter X Hunter Anime is not yet done. According to Togashi, he says he's on hiatus and that he's eventually continuing but the demand from the manga company is too much stress for him and he doesn't want to continue. The quota he has to fill is a chapter a week which is a lot for anyone in the manga industry. From a blog post by AlyZoldyck on Hunter X ...

The first reference, "Bankruptcy Chapter 7," is referring to one of Knuckle's abilities. Doing so, he lends his opponent some of his nen, but while they use it, they are charged "interest" on it, meaning they have to repay that much nen back to him.[1] The reference here is that the male character is wondering how long it would take for Bankruptcy Chapter 7 ...

In episode 91 The Strong × And × The Weak, King Meruem is born. After his birth, he goes to the top of the ant hill where Shaiapouf plays a song titled In the Palace ~ Lamentoso. This particular song can be found on the Hunter × Hunter (2011) Original Soundtrack 3 as track number 10.

For Chrollo to steal a Nen ability from another Nen user four conditions must be met: He must witness the Nen ability in action with his own eyes. He must ask about the ability and be answered by the victim. His victims palm must touch the handprint on the cover of Bandit's Secret. All of the above must be completed within an hour. Chrollo can only use a ...

Don Freecss is a character mentioned to have written a guide to the dark continent in two parts: East and West. The association has had a copy of East. West has not been seen. Ging claimed that is because Don is still writing West, and thus is still alive. East was written 300 years ago. If Ging is correct, then these are valid assumptions: Don must be ...

According to the Hunter x Hunter Wiki: Feitan's first language is Chinese; he speaks in sentence fragments in Japanese while switching to his native tongue when angered. Given this, and the text is written in either Japanese kanji or Chinese (as @kuwaly beat me to pointing out), and the fact that there is a Japanese translation provided, I'm going to ...

As what Miramiel stated, the mangaka of Hunter X Hunter, Togashi Yoshihiro is on an indefinite hiatus but will be back eventually. However, it is worth nothing that the reason behind this hiatus is the mangaka's illness. Togashi has been experiencing serious back problems (sources: FANDOM, ANN-1, ANN-2) which have caused him numerous short breaks over the ...

There are a few factors in play, but the most prevalent reason is Illumi's control over Killua. It's possible you underestimate just how much of an influence Illumi exerts—shown both in this episode, and elaborated on in episode 94. Suffice it to say, Illumi basically raised Killua to be a killer, and thus has had years and years of exposure to Killua to ...

Yes, in the Hunter Chairman Election arc, it is clear that basically everyone who is a licensed hunter knows that Ging Freecss is Gon's dad, including Hisoka. It is also clear to everyone that Ging and Gon are not emotionally close, per Leorio's outburst in the Hunter Chairman Election. There is no reason to think that the Zoldycks would be in the dark about ...

My guess is 338 "Up in a tree" based on the previews for 148, although who knows they might include a little of 339 although I doubt it. The reason I state this, is that in the preview of 148, and at the end of 147, the plot is left at the point where Gon is traveling to the World's Tree to meet Ging. This is exactly what happens in 338 of the manga, hence ...

We have not seen Gon used his Nen since he's been healed, but he does look perfectly healthy. I think the answer lies in the way Kirua phrased his wish: This picture was taken from "mangapanda". I have the books (in French) and it says "Return Gon to the way he was". Also, page 7 of chapter 323, Illumi states that Kirua will most likely ask "alluka to make ...

Finally we got one great news. According to this Link and wiki: It's been a big past few weeks for "Hunter x Hunter" fans. After Shueisha's "Weekly Shonen Jump" announced mid-March that "Hunter x Hunter" would be making its return to the magazine (confirmed for April 18) after being on hiatus since 2014, fans in America now have even more to look ...
