    This is where I'm at now tbh.
    :distracted

    I'm all for political intrigue plots where there's assasinations, and manipulation but how does any of this connect to the story or characters?

    As far as I can tell Kurapika is that milfs bodyguard and that's it...

    Oh...and Phantom Troupe wants to steal shit as usual...

    And Hunter Association wants....something

    Can we go back to Gon and Killua now? For once I don't even care about Hisoka because it means I'll have to endure more of this political theatre.
    :catsupine

    Editors always say shit to hype chapters. Its a business tactic, never believe it.

    I like this Prince arc, but Togashi needs to tone down on the level of detail or he'll never finish it. There are way too many characters. It's like One Piece, but unlike Oda, Togashi never does any off-paneling and this is causing a different kind of problem.

    That said, if he keeps his current pace of 20 chapters a year and manages to speed the story up, he could accomplush something cool.

    Probably the two sisters. And that chapter was amazing. Really fun, really dramatic and moved the plot quite a lot. If every other chapter was like that, we'd be on a fast track to finishing this arc in a satisfying way.

    I believe Hisoka is on deck 3. It’s been confirmed now that he’s not on decks 4 or 5 and Illumi made a straight b-line for deck 3 once the Spiders meeting concluded. Phinks, Feitan and Nobunaga are also heading up there to assassinate Morena, as is Xi-Yiu family underboss who is also there to find Hisoka. This is the perfect stage for Hisoka to claim his first victim.

    Pretty good chapter. Nice and thrilling. I was secretely hoping for maybe a glimpse of Hisoka or the Ryodan but i cant complain afted seeing three new nen abilities in action. I really like Lynch ability. It looks cool and it is very useful. It reminds me a lot of Pakunodas nen ability and also Feitan ( he tortured Owl with an ability that questions the body). Said it before, but Im confident at least some of the abilities and nen users we are going to be seeing will be added to the Ryodans arsenal at some point. Unlike this run which was okayish, the next batch of chapters should be awesome. Too bad theres's going to be another hiatus, again now.

    Illumi and Kalluto were on deck 2.

    The action this chapter caught me off guard, I loved it. So many cool new hatsu’s. It’s a bummer that the hiatus started just when we were about to see some interesting clashes.

    Good chapter, see y’all next year.

    the girl with the bob haircut the maffia guy chasing was such a hottie.. hope togashi wont kill her off.

    makes me wonder how many of those level up killer guys are going to get an ability, and which ones.. I hope at least 5 are going to get something good including this chick.

    right now Im only interested in that illegitimate girl and her killer bunch and the spiders and their storyline.

    Wait does this mean that the third prince Zhang Lei is actually a bastard son? He called the brother of the king his father. Which means you don’t have to be royalty to be in the succession war. I’m starting to think that the seventh prince is related to his mafia benefactor as well since they look alike.

    Yeah. Imagine Illumi & Hisoka team up killing everyone on that deck.

    Man, I remember when people used to say that the Chimera Ant arc was unnecessary. LOL

    Anyway, great chapter. Fun characters and awesome abilities.

    Ahh stop being so dramatic. Togashi ain't gonna die, we got about 20 or so years left until the story is over. Togashi could easily survive until then especially seeing how the Japanese have the highest life expectancy and shit.
    This arc is necessary because it will resolve Kurapika's character arc (by killing him and the spiders off) so that's why Togashi is going all out for this arc. He just wants to give our boy Kurapika the epic sendoff he deserves.

    At 20 chapters a year? Yeah just about. It'll probably end sometime around 2035-36 actually if it stays at this same pace.

    Togashi doesnt have to die, its just enough if his health deteriorates to the point he cant or just doesnt want to continue.. which paired with his low drive I think will happen within 10 years... maybe 5.

    If I was a gambling man, Id say this might be the last arc he finishes, maybe one more.. but only if the next would be a short one.

    either way I dont see this having a satisfying finale.

    No way is this shit going to be 750 chapters long, he'll probably do what he did with YYH and end it prematurely (although in HxH's case, its not exactly premature). Togashi will be 70 in 2036, you honestly think he's going to still be drawing manga then? He's already complaining about his health now at 52.

    He'll probably just let his assistants draw it if it gets that bad. Maybe if he picks up the pace he can get it done by 2030-2031 but definitely not any sooner than that.

    His assistants practically do all the work when it comes to drawing anyway, the only thing he drew on this page was the two crappy looking characters:

    Wow this looks bad and I had forgotten about it. Like you put 2 characters of another manga in the spread of another.

    If he ends it without completing Dark Continent arc I will murder him myself. If he dies before finishing Dark Continent arc, I will desecrate his grave.

    He'll probably finish it the same way he finished the Three Kings saga in YYH, abruptly.

    Oda has a higher possibility of dying than Togashi, to be honest. LOL

    Is it really impossible for him to do more than 10 chapters in one go? I doubt that's the case. He just chose that number because it allows him to do whatever he wants for the rest of the year. If he was as passioned as Oda, he would manage to do one or two more chapters here and there instead of stopping at 10.

    HxH could've been a legendary series if it got a regular schedule and a popular anime (a seasonal one like MHA). Its potential cannot be fulfilled because its author isn't as dedicated to it as other mangakas. Naruto with HxH's hiatus wouldn't be half of what it was. Same for OP etc. So the most frustrating thing is that what we'll end up getting is 50% of what it could've been. Same for YYH's last arc.
