    Togashi will 100% die before hxh finishes. He has two other options: hand the shit off, or comprimise his work by rushing it. It's a damn shame.

    I dont give 2 shits about the drawing style, Im much more interested in the story of HxH. Togashi could easily feed his ideas to an artist and they draw it exactly how he wants, but insteadhe just does this.

    This Prince arc seems sort of unnecessary.... I mean where we are going does it really matter who the next king is? I guess it might be important if they’re the decision maker on what to do with the things that get brought back from the new world? I feel like he could have condensed the number of princes to like 4.... and got the same overall plot and saved 100s of panels over the arc. A military prince, a baby prince, a psycho killer prince, and a pacifist prince. I mean togashi does this every arc... whether it’s too many named ants, too many cards, or participants in the exams... I mean I appreciate it because it does allow him to flesh the world out more.... but at this point there’s no way he’s finishing the story if it keeps up.

    Let's just hope this run ends with something substantial happening. Like seeing Hisoka. If this is how it's gonna be from now on, I think we can demand chapters with a faster pace. Imagine if in a few months from now, we get 10 chapters like the ones we got this time, I couldn't take it.

    He should get the author of Tokyo Ghoul to draw for him starting with the next volume of chapters. I think he can replicate Togashi's art style fairly well.

    I wouldn't be happy with this to be honest. I personally feel that Ishida is absolutely terrible at illustrating fights. 95% of the time I have absolutely no idea what the hell is going on, it's just a confusing blur signifying impact with limbs awkwardly extended in every direction.

    So...remember when the editor said he nearly cried over a certain chapter, what the fuck was that about, those lesbian sisters perhaps?

    Seriously thats what I was thinking as well.. It was most probably some poor attempt at trying to build some hype, because as far as im concerned, nothing of the sort happened minus probably the death of one of the twins.. But she was hardly a big character, barely had any panel time

    This is what I always have in mind for years as well. With his money, he should be able to hire countless assistants. Well.....I mean a group of 3-4 people would be enough to draw the arts while Togashi feeds his ideas just like you said. Is he too stubborn to do all the work by himself?

    In one of Togashi's interview someone asked him about hiring someone to draw his manga. Which he replied to: "If I can't draw my own manga there's no point in doing it."

    One of the many reasons this manga was dropped by a good portion.

    The hiatuses. The dude knows he has health issues yet still feels the need to do arcs like this. I like the arc. Good arc and exposition and story telling. However we need to get going.

    If Togashi knew he was going on another (long) hiatus he should have done more with this run of 10 chapters. I would not say it was bad, but it was somewhat tedious, didnt advance the plot by much and didnt focus on the big picture. Underwhelming to say the least. With all these breaks, this manga is never going to be able to conclude in a satisfactory way with all the plotpoints being resolved.

    I didn't understand, are we getting chapter 390 before the hiatus or not?

    From a more generalist perspective, it doesn't matter. Kurapika could simply beat Tserriednich, recover the eyes of his clan and meet the Kurta on the Dark Continent while the story moves on to grander things.

    From a character specific perspective (i.e. Kurapika's point of view), it surely does matter a lot. Kurapika's story is far from being as compelling as Gon's and Killua's stories, in my opinion, and needed this kind of attention.

    One could say that this arc doesn't focus enough on Kurapika, but that's how Togashi works, I can't say I expected such a complex and character heavy arc, but I didn't expect a cookie cutter arc either.

    3. Killua
    4. Gon
    5. Leorio

    There isn't a point to HxH like there are in some series. The main characters have goals but it is more about their adventures than seeing them reach their goals. At the end of the day how much do we really care about Gon meeting his father or Leorio becoming a doctor anyway? Seeing something like an arc that very directly involves Leorio trying to pass medical school would be boring compared to just seeing him stumble into an unexpected scenario. It is refreshing when many series follow the pattern where a character is looking for something and the next arc just happens to involve fulfilling exactly that and links directly to the rest of the plot's direction.

    The story ending unexpectedly would be depressing in that we don't get any more of it more so than the lack of proper resolution. I don't that way about just this series either, I think with a good series the details should be far more important than the broad plot points.

    The chapter is out.

    It was very good. Looks like we're going to be getting more involved with the illegitimate royals and the mafia when we return.
