Am I the only one who's disappointed that all four MC's won't be equally involved here?

aw well, it should be good for filling in gaps and such and we'll see how everything else is.

Kurapika is a "he" not a she. Nippon for whatever reason did a lot scenes insinuating he was a girl such as the bondage chains when that's not true

Reading these news, I doubt it's gonna return before the movie airs, but it's still good news, it's canon after-all. I bet it will return after the movie airs, Mars maybe? the month it ended in this year? i think so.

They mentioned that this movie features the murder of the Kurata clan... so I think this would be awesome. I don't know how will they incorporate battles with Kurapika as a protagonist though.

Anyways, this is gonna be awesome.
I thought it might be about the floor masters when I read the first news, there's still a chance for another movie though, but being about the past is actually more interesting, so yea it's a must watch, too bad we'll have to wait another year to watch it.

That killed my interests a bit. :I


By Yoshihiro Togashi, the creator of the manga. Does that help?
