It is. I believe it will begin publishing again on June? (July?) 2nd. It's the second, I just can't remember which month...

hmmm thinking about it. In terms where all the categories are mixed, for me no. It wouldn't scratch my top 15. Out of all shounen category, would place it in my top 3 probably. Gintama will always be my personal favorite though. Up to the viewer for this and if the community collectively can compromise to a universal truth, but that won't happen LOL

For me, HxH is magnificent. It is probably one of the greatest I have watched. I can't really rank my favorite animes (different genres; like comparing apples and oranges), but HxH is holy crap.

Anime is different for everyone: an anime can easily be one person's life-changer and another's least favorite. This is something I've thought for a while.

I agree that the last episode out was great, however, maybe I'm just not a battle-loving person (unless it's Killua because I'm a typical fangirl) but it didn't seem too different to me. I watch HxH with my family every week (we are a HxH family!! ) and after the episode was finished there were cries of, "Wasn't that just the best ever episode?!" ...and I was thinking, "wat?"

I have an aversion for long shows. I love plenty of 12 and ~24 episode shows, but even then there are a lot of room for mistakes. For something to go near endlessly long I'd assume there would be some dead zones of boredom, which shouldn't go ignored in saying it is the greatest ever. In short, probably not. All that matters is what you like the best.

The only conversations I see about what is the greatest are usually about a certain show and the flames that follow. This topic is the same thing with clever wording.

I'd probably have a higher opinion of H X H if its creator weren't widely known for being unable to stay on task.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Yu Yu Hakusho (despite being on the Flame of Recca side of that particular either / or), but it kind of ... fizzled.

A lot of people have different tastes so my answer would have to be no. People will never fully agree on what is to considered one of the greatest anime of all time. It is all personal preference.

Yup, it's from Aika's battle with Hakaze.

Slightly curious to know why this affects your opinion of the show.

I totally sympathize with him; if I was writing stuff like the Chimera Ant arc (heck, really most parts of this show), I would be getting burned out like crazy. I can't even imagine the emotional energy that goes into creating these moments and this story. If anything, it's amazing that he has got as far as he has on the show and not given up.

I am wary of getting too far into it for fear he is going to bugger off somewhere and end up having the damn thing restarted again, honestly.

Saying that an anime deserves a "top spot" in the discussion of all time great animes is the exact same thing as asking if an anime should be in the discussion for "Greatest Anime of All Time".

You talk about denying subjectivity (which I never did) but then proceed to say "Of Course" it deserves a top spot. I asked a question about it's greatness and where people think it should place. You make a statement that concretely defines its place with no questions asked. And then attack me saying I'm making ignorant statements and denying subjectivity?

I think it's a bit hypocritical of you to so adamantly defend subjectivity (when it's not even being attacked) and then make a statement that denies the possibility of varying views. What if someone else doesn't believe it even deserves a top spot? What if they think it's one of the bottom 3 when it comes to execution? I also think the boner thing is ridiculous, especially in light of your own statement that it's in the top three best executed and deserves a top spot. Because since you're stating the exact same thing that I'm asking, you're basically saying that the other 2 in your top 3, and whoever else lands in your "top spots" are basically reducing all of those animes to "They gave me a bunch of anime boners."

How about, you just really enjoyed those animes and consider them all time greats? Just like I really enjoy Hunter X Hunter, consider it my favorite and think it should be in the discussion for the all time great. There's no need to be obnoxious and insulting.

Especially when you're doing the exact same thing. Just with more animes.





LOL out of all the replies you have you pick mine. Sigh, well I will respond to each point as fast as possible;
First GoldStar statement is what I considered my fast reply would be, and then I elaborated on it.

Second Sorry I did not riddle my reply with "I's" if it wasn't obvious that "deserves" was my I, also since when does A top spot mean NUMBER ONE in everything, I said A, as in yes it can get A HIGH RANK with other large bodies of work as a collective unit, due to it being fantastic in its current state. but not the GREATEST which you stated, lending me to believe you think it topples over everything anime made or I guess even including manga and anyone else below has to deal with it since it has no equal in any other view.

Just to clarify when I say execution, I mean in its delivery, no shift from the main story, no segways, just pushing the series futher, and I stated shounen, NOT the whole entire anime world, shounen doesn't tend to have a fast track in executing due to pacing dilemma, so I will reiterate, IN MY, as in MYYYYYYY view, it has a great execution as a shounen, and if it is not in the top 3 for MY execution list is some where close to it.
Surprised my comment was the most "insulting" to you that attained your reply, but then again it is all subjective isn't it? hahahaahahaha xD

Oh forgot to add last point, doing it with more anime at least promotes a large collectivity of high rank shows, which even as a unit we have to at least applaud, we don't rank JUST one above all others, 3 was a bad number to place, make it roughly 300ish or even higher, basically shows who have attained a massive 9ish out of a 10 scale from over 100,000 raters.


Well, I mean, you're the only one calling my QUESTION the "One of the most ignorant statements ever uttered" and intimating I'm just having a fan boy boner. It's kind of obvious that if I was going to be insulted by a comment, it would be this one. And while you're clarifying yourself, allow me to do the same: The topic of this thread is "does it deserve to be in the conversation?". It's not: "Hunter X Hunter is the greatest anime of all time. Deal with it." Do I feel that it is? Yes. But that MY opinion, as I stated in my original post. Just my opinion. But the point I am raising is that it should be mentioned along with others as the GOAT. I'm not so daft as to think that because it's my personal number 1, that it's going to be everyone's or even in the top ten. I never said it topples over every other anime/manga and everyone else below has to deal with it. Even in the initial post, I said it would be a debate, meaning there are many others to consider.

I'm merely saying that as I my favorite, it deserves to be in consideration for when those lists are made for the greatest. And, if I got to vote, I would pick it. But, I know, others might not. I mean, when one looks at the anime genre as a whole, there are far too many animes for anyone to definitely say: "This is the greatest anime of all time with no room for discussion." Some are going to champion Clannad, while others champion Samurai X, while more still choose FMA: Brotherhood or Spirited Away. My thought, is that when discussing these greats, Hunter X Hunter should be included in the discussion for which one is the best. Because while there will never be a universally selected #1, it's fun to talk about which one you think should be.

Lastly, I'm not sure why you equate a person feeling that one show stands above the others, somehow means that the the animes that stand shoulder to shoulder with it wouldn't be promoted. Just because I love Hunter X Hunter doesn't mean that I don't sing the praises of other tremendous anime. I mean, per volume, I'm sure I've effused far more praise over Gintama and Black Lagoon than I have HxH, simply because I've known them longer. You can have a personal choice for what you can consider the greatest, without acting like there aren't others just as good.

We're saying the same thing here in different ways. I just think it got started off on the wrong tone.

If the story progressed better maybe but it seems we've been fighting ants for over a year.

Oh lame, I think I just found the issue, I didn't mean YOU personally are uttering one of the most ignorant statements, but quoting the original statement I replied to which I agreed and then added that "This is the greatest of all-time" said by an anime fan of any show to someone else is ignorant.
What I currently find hilarious is why am I arguing with someone else that I can see adamantly likes the same show I do about that exact very show.
Since my other replies didn't seem to have done you justice in what I meant this is my answer to your OP:
No, don't debate "Does Hunter X Hunter deserve to be in the debate for the Greatest Anime of All Time?", but instead Debate why HunterXHunter should be included as one of the Great shows of the anime world, there is no Greatest
