It doesn't make sense to me. Is there a logical reason behind this? The only shounen that doesn't do this is HxH.

I've always thought it activates their attacks

LOL

Because they're stupid, but that's okay.

To let the viewers know what the attack is.

So they remember what they're meant to be doing.

i thought of it like a spell

the name channels the power and activates it

"I WILL JAB FROM THE RIGHT AND THEN FOLLOW UP WITH AN UPPERCUT! DON'T BLOCK THIS! AAAAARGH!"

"I'M SNEAK ATTACKING YOU FROM BEHIND!!!! AAAAAAAARGGGH!"

Well, obviously it's reverse psychology.

Its because its more badass that way

Also, HxH is not the only one who doesnt do that. Fullmetal Alchemist also doesnt do it

"There are two kinds of people in this world; those who yell out their attack names, and those that don't"

That's an episode title from Gintama, which is another shounen without attack name yelling.

I think with his power he has to, maybe. Remember when he had his neck crushed he still had to udder the words.

I've always wondered why the enemy gets surprised by it every time. Like

"I wonder when he is going to attack.. hmm" "RASENGAN" "Is it going to be now or?.. NANIIIII?!?!?"
