If your like me then you are probably anxiously awaiting the new Manga which will begin a new arc for the ever loved, highly selling, old school on TV at the same time as Dragonball Z - Hunter X Hunter.

I am just making this thread while I search for a Warcraft 3 game as I alwas thought Hunter X Hunter was a great anime but it seems the writer has everyone by a thread and seems to take these extended breaks due to numerous reasons I have read. I am glad they reooted the anime which is the only reaons I come back to this site as I have given up on Naruto ending in my ilifetime with the ammount of fillers and it seems bleach wont be back for a while!

Anyone else miss old Hunter X Hunter manga?

I am 28 and remember getting it when it was new.. Ahh those were the days but only if I knew!! This is almost as bad as waiting for Suikoden 6....

Togashi really needs to get his act together and get back to the manga. The chimera ant arc is especially long so the anime should still take a while before reaching the new arc. Every time I read that dreaded hiatus message at the end of a chapter, I would cringe since I knew how long of a wait I was in store for.

Something that I've wondered, as I'm sure all hunter fans have, is how the Chimera Ant Queen came to be as big as she has. The first humans she consumes were the children were we introduced to, so how did she become sentient and intelligent? We may never know...

Just answered your own question lol. We will never know.

To my understanding the Queen insect of most species usually have some sort of instinct of telepathy/way of talking to other worker insects. telling them what to do. Which would explain the somewhat sentient.

As for getting real big, well its basically evolution in a much more rapid way in this case for the anime. Meaning the previous Kings and Queens were smaller and ate bigger animals as they reproduced. causing their off springs size to grow until you have the current Queen we see here.

Now after watching the latest episode of Hunter X hunter..it got f-ing DARK real quick. Man I felt bad for that kid. In the manga that episode had some sort of gore in there and if there ever is a uncut version of this with added scenes you think you be watching Berserk of Hellsing.

Lol well if you read the manga then you knew right off the bat it would definitely get dark. this would definitely be a shock to those who didn't read it. and honestly, they might be better off. knowing what was to become of those poor kids actually made it a little hard to watch lol

Oh I knew it was going to get Dark, but for this Anime which seemed to be a bit on the light side of things even on Greed island during Gon's fight with the Bomber. Its just I didn't know how far was the anime was going to push its Seriousness/Darkness. I honestly thought right after the boy and his sister see that crab ant it would just jump to the Queen and see their ripped clothes with very little to no blood.

But no, They started pushing it by showing the Kid being hit by the crab ant and then when it got back to the Queen their clothes are on the floor on a pool of their blood. The moment I saw that kid get hit I said "DAAAAAAMMMN!!"

Don't get me wrong this arc is going to be awesome, but what was shown already isn't even close the the arcs darkest part .which makes me wonder how far are they going to take it.

From my experience the manga is typically darker in tone than the anime counterpart. Maybe because kids are more likely to see the anime, as opposed to the manga which would require a bit of searching? My guess is that they'll use some more convenient censoring and maybe even omit some parts since the manga is pretty... uh... DARK at that part. Seriously, when I first read it, I was so shocked at how vastly different it became! Almost like someone else decided to take over.

Of course they will use convenient censoring I just thought they might omit the Crab Ant hitting/killing he kid scene and go straight back to the Queen.

My thoughts exactly. when I first read the Chimera ant Arc.

I won't be seeing Kurapika for awhile though I miss the old school HxH too. I think this Chimera Ant part is interesting. However, they will have to come up with more powerful enemies after that. I thought it looked like Cell in DBZ

Any clue why this hiatus is long. I've heard he's getting a divorce and he had surgery. I also know he is lazy so there's that to.

Agreed id like to see where he is going with dark continent.
If he doesn't get into gear they could always drop it and redo Kenichi and go into the darker arcs as well. always wanted to see more Apa

Most animes from that time period were changed for children that trend has stopped for the most part a lot of things deserve remakes.

One last edit... I think it was meant to be a shocking anti war type sentiment they will probably filter a few images but might not. And I dont think they are intending to portray intelligence beyond instinct in the queen or any of the ants at the present time.

At this point as for intelligence before the Queen ate the human kid..no that was instinct as a animal/mother.
