I wouldn't say it's absolutely necessary, but I would really love to see a strong female lead in HxH. There is way too much gender skew. Hell, they won't even give us Pitou as a female, and Bisky barely gets any screen time anymore. C'mon, now.

But, alas, this is a show with a male target audience. At least the few women that are included aren't pure fanservice drivel.

I am sure some will partially to emphatically disagree with what I say. This is just my opinion, so no need to get so butt-hurt over it. Granted I am not that far in yet to Hunter X Hunter (7 episodes), but I feel that a female main character wouldn't hurt. I am impressed with this anime so far after barely scratching the surface and feel that it will do just fine should a female main never join. However, I think a female main could further strengthen a great series like this if done correctly.

I agree with a previous poster in that a "Bulma" casting would be terrible. A weak, useless female just doesn't go well with anyone anymore as it can be justifiably viewed as sexist. I think a strong female main would fit well with this show. I do not think it would require a love interest in the show either. Obviously I am a huge fan of Erza from Fairy Tail for these reasons as well as others. She isn't always fawning over her supposed love interest Jelal (like Sakura does Sasuke from Naruto). Yes, she has fanservice moments in sexy outfitss at times, which would be another legitimate fear for Hunter X Hunter fans. But Erza is not always that way. In fact, many people are fans of her strength and all out being a bad ass more so than just her looks.

Heck, Menchi was extremely sexually provocative with her look in comparison. I still found her to have an interesting, fun attitude for a character. I don't think this show needs an exact copy of Erza as it can play upon its own creativity to bring about an interesting female lead character. Females bring diversity that an all-male cast can lack. I found Magi to have several failings but had one strength in the female lead Morgiana being likeable and showing much more character growth than the others.

So I would thoroughly enjoy a female main character as long as she is done right; strong and reliable rather than the stereotypically sexist weak and helpless female. The show would be all the better, but it will be just as fine without.

I think Hunter x Hunter is fine the way it is. It introduces us to many different characters over the course of time which is nice so I feel no need for an additional main character.

Now it would be pretty bad ass if they did add one, and she could kick some serious ass while avoiding having the annoying personalities of many main female characters.

I doubt a romance would form between the two since Gon is kind of dense and Killua does not seem interested in love, only really being Gon's best friend and protector and nothing else.

We already have a lot of female characters in HxH.

Maki
Alluka
Neferpitou
Bisky
Menchi
Palm
Kallout (most likely a female because Kiyko stated)

And lots more. There's a chance for one of them, or a new one, to become a main character, except for the kitty.

I don't understand WHY people think that a female character HAS to be a "love interest" or make a "love triangle."

I think they do need a female character. Maybe by showing different sides of the characters. By what I think and feel, pretty sure that Alluka could or have a high chance to be the main female character.

Well I used to think that it should have a girl main character until Biscuit came along, so no.
Biscuit isn't really a main character but I guess she is in the Greed Island arc.

Hell no. Togashi criticized his own female character in Yu Yu Hakusho in the form of Keiko. Good thing too, women in anime adhere too many tropes and cause a lot of unnecessary bullshit due to the ostentatious calls for fan service and insipid character archetypes, especially women among the battle shonen genre. Hell no.

Is Neferpitou really female?
