Before beginning this review, I will like to point out that the intention of this review is not to trigger Hunter X Hunter (HxH for short)fans or let them feel like I'm attacking them or their intelligence since that is basically the trend in most reviews these days. Most reviews are made with the intention to 'trigger' a reaction out of fans by criticizing a series to the point that you are telling fans that they are basically dumb for liking a particular series.

This review is simply showing you guys another perspective since HxH fans aren't used to seeing much criticism when it comes to ...

This my favorite manga of all time, so I may be a little biased when it comes to this review. I love every work that Yoshihiro Togashi puts out! I'm not exactly sure what a typical shounen is, so i'll just start by saying that it starts out with a boy named Gon Freecs going on the most challengeing hunt of his life, to find his elusive hunter father. And the story shows his development as a hunter throughout.

Story: 9/10
I give the story a 9 because the first 12 or so volumes had a great story and a lot character devolopment with the four main ...

Most of my points in my HxH 2011 review stand here, so I'll keep this short.

HxH 2011 definitely brought life to the HxH manga, but the manga is still wholesome in its story and its characters. The current arc is in the running to be the best arc of HxH in my opinion.

The only low points for the manga are its artwork and the constant hiatuses. The art can range from scribbles on a page to fantastically drawn creatures and areas that even Miura of Berserk would approve of. And as every HxH fan knows, the hiatuses are the biggest flaw on this great ...

Okay, to start off, I'm going to go on a little tirade about the early chapters of this manga's art. If you don't care or whatever, then keep scrolling until you see "TIRADE END", I guess, haha.


When I read this manga, I was shocked that the art style of the manga that managed to tie with OP was so bad. It actually looked a lot like my current art style.

I was actually sort of happy.

You see, I'm an aspiring mangaka (bleh, I know that's not what you call it outside of Japan, but bleh), and I was always thinking that my art style ...

I gave everything a 10/10 except for the art which got 7/10.

Anyway, where should I start?

This is a masterpiece, and I will tell you why:

Story: 10/10
Genius. He thought it all up. The world of HXH, when we think of it, makes you realize many things about our own world, and makes you question many of our morals and mentalities. This masterpiece was elegantly written, no fillers, and every action counts. Realistic reactions to many events. this manga leaves you in a wreck of emotions: there are funny moments, there are heartwarming moment, an then there are those very dark moments when you least expect them. ...

"Monstrous Animals, Rare Species...Buried Riches, Hidden Treasures...Worlds of Demons, Unexplored Lands...The Word 'UNKNOWN' Seems Magic...And Some Men Are Attracted By This Force...They Are Called 'HUNTERS'!"

This is the introductory that meets the reader in the very 1st chapter of the 1st volume of the Hunter X Hunter manga. Having had already watched the anime, I am aware of what Hunter X Hunter is about so the introduction wasn't anything new. Someone who hasn't ever encountered Hunter X Hunter, however, will probably feel disappointed to eventually find out that the manga isn't really about a treasure-hunt or a great adventure into some ...

-I had done a review of the anime a while ago .. I'll put it back here since it's practically the same with the exception that the manga has a horrible inconsistency with the drawing, as it does not have the animation, the music and the direction of the anime that it improves it in every aspect of the work, therefore I can call it bad and with all the errors that are loaded-

I will talk only about the errors of the series .. Arc by Arc

1)Hunter Exam.
Although the beginning paints well and forms the friendship relations of which the main ...

This manga is an absolute masterpiece, and I'll never stop recommending it.

Character development is incredible and the story is engaging. Pacing is pretty much perfect. While I was reading the manga, it really felt like I was on a journey with the protagonists, which I think is a sign of great writing.

There are hardly any instances of plot armor or plot holes in this manga. In all 380 chapters, there are only 2 events that can be referred to as asspull. The power system feels balanced and contained, without skyrocketing in later chapters, instead opting for more creative powers.

With Hiatus x Hiatus, you have to take the good with the bad. Or, on second thought, you don’t really have to take the bad at all. Read the following arcs: Hunter exam, York Shin City, Chimera Ant. I’ll make it easy for you: read manga chapters 1 through 38, 64 through 119, then 186 through 318. That is Hunter x Hunter. The rest is not worth the time. When reading HxH this way, it becomes a really solid, decent length shonen manga with a bittersweet ending. Considering the manga will never have an actual ending, this is really the only way to read it.

So ...

( Sorry english isn't my first language (; 3 ;) )

Hunter X Hunter is one of the longest ongoing manga in Weekly Shonen Jump since 1998. Sadly, this masterpiece is really have annoying hiatus often, so unlike One Piece that published from 1997 have almost 700 chapters in 2012. Hiatus X Hiatus (Hunter X Hunter I mean) only made half of it, 340 chapters and hiatus again in 2012.

But, what makes this manga really addictive to the reader? What makes it adapted into amazing anime twice (1999 & 2011)? The answer can only you get after you read this manga. So, I'm going to review ...

This is one of the most underrated manga i ever read. The characters are really well develop,you are gonna love some of the characters good or evil. Most people see this story has an shonen battle manga but yet it is not like that at some points at the story, some part of the story will use challenges for the main or secondary characters in were the need to use the intellectual to beat the enemy. Every arc has is own unique style with different objectives that will not make you bored of the story. This is a great manga one may said that is ...

Hunter x Hunter is the best Shounen there is.
What i like about it is that it feels like togashi has taken all the god ideas and tropes from shounen and has kicked all the bad out.

Gon is like the early Goku.
Most Shounenprotagonists are simple stupid Hotheads, before DBZ Goku wasnt stupid, it was just that he was raised in the jungle and therefore was uncivilzed and didnt know and understood conformity.
Gon also is not stupid, its more like he ignores social conventions.

The powersystem is outlined in the beginning.
Take OP for example, afer hundreds of episodes they just say you know there is another powersystem ...

This manga does everything a shounen manga should do. When I think of the perfect manga, I think of Hunter X Hunter. This review is about the series as a whole.

The fights are amazing. Each hunter has their own ability and fighting style. The main characters use their wits and their own unique style to win. I liked Dragon Ball Z as much as the next kid growing up, but each characters strength is determined by their power level, and that's about it (DragonBall is a different). In HxH there is so much thought and strategy during the fights. When a character wins, you ...

One of the few manga's I've reread because it was just that good. I'm willing to bet most people that read have loved it. The hiatus of it is quite saddening as I still check every week to see if the next chapter is out. We were left with such a cliff hanger in the last chapter it's a damn shame if this manga will never be finished. It has so many good aspects to it. Personally when Gon is just waiting for Pitou to heal Komugi so he can kill her those are some of the best chapters in any manga I've ever read. ...

This is my all time favorite manga AND anime so I will give it a perfect score. But because I love it so much it pains me that I have to wait so long for new chapters to come out. But I will wait because I believe in quality over quantity.

Honestly I have nothing bad to say about this series; it has everything you could ever ask for in a shonen manga. A lovable main character, great friendships, interesting abilities, nice balance between fights and problem solving, no over powered main characters, a huge world to explore, and the list goes on. One most ...

This review DO NOT contain spoilers.

First of all, i need to say: hunter x hunter is not a flawless mangá. The art style in some chapters are avarege, since the author has many health issues and can´t draw properly, and some moments has too many exposition dialogues that doens´t need to be too long.
However, despite these problems, hunter x hunter is one of the most unique and inteligent battle shounen that exist, followed by one piece and jojo.
Here are some of the most compelling things that make me love this mangá:

The narrative structure: Hunter x hunter has 4 main characters, and we follow the journey ...

The story of HxH is very good, the world is pretty awesome and the powers are super cool. The problem with this manga is the endless exposition, even 390 chapters in there are walls of text that makes this manga feel like I'm reading the wiki for this manga and not the manga itself.
It is a testament to the brilliance of this manga despite all that I was still engaged in the story even after the beginning of this newest arc.
The characters are good but you can go a long while without seeing them and often it's out of sight out of mind with ...
