So pretty much anything is possible? Cool.
Hxh system allows for a lot of bullshit, that’s why i love it. I like transmutter class because you can keep it simple, though...
In your case you can, like
Buy fireproof vest, emit your aura a centimeter away from you and turn it to fire
Or
Make your aura gasoline and walk around with something that makes sparks
Or
With manipulation you can alter other stuff’s temperature to make them burn

There’s so many ways of doing different stuffs it’s pretty hard to classify the character’s nen categories

I thought knuckle was a conjurer because of potclean but he’s an emitter, for example, both classes can do that skill happen though :p

Transmutters happen to have the most vanilla powers and use them to do amazing stuffs, they are like the rogues of hxh, which is why i like them, you can have a tax dealer with lots of convoluted skills, or have very tricky systems to manipulate people using needles and mobiles, or... just make your aura a freaking thread like machi and use it in thousands of creative ways instead :p

I think I'd go with an information gathering ability over a combat ability personally.

Maybe some kind of limited telepathy and astral projection ability, with the ability to conjure these memory palace/nen beast/artificial mind things that can store and process and retrieve relevant information (basically acting as counsel). If I had to fight and try not to die, I'd either have to somehow predict their actions before they initiate them, or maybe luck out in sufficiently fucking with them mentally lol.

Yeah Nen and Stands are me favorite and funny enough Nen are just turning into convoluted creepy stands these days.
Man, nen got so stand-like, i ended up finishing part 5’s manga and now i’m trying to cope with that favt by trying to trace hxh’s counterparts as stands and vice versa

Based on Hisoka's personality test, I'd probably fit most with being a conjurer. Haven't really thought about which type I'd like to be before, but honestly conjurer seems like a good fit so Hisoka's right on the money :P

Also the Part 5 anime is good, very good.

We told you. If they can fix the back half of the manga then it's going to be great.

Man, i read it all in two days and i didn’t think it was bad at all, if they can improve that it’ll be easily my favorite saga so far lol

Still i read it all in two days so i guess im a poor judge lol (but i started from the chapter i was in the anime so idk)

I'm going to try to only watch a couple episodes per session so I don't get burnt out, but so far I'm really liking it.

I did a reread of Part 5 several months ago with the updated fan translation, and even with the better translation the ending was still hard for me to follow. Here's hoping that having it animated makes it easier to follow along.

The ending has a lot of abstract concepts behind it.

Hadn't put this together, but it makes sense that this guy (Ickshonpe Katocha) is the "I" in Greed Island.




And from that latter chapter, I like this reversal:

I'm pretty sure once this boat ride is over Part 5 is going to look straight forward and mundane. I'm not even sure how some of these potential fights could play out. How will a guy who can see into the future and then manipulate the present take on a guy who can transport the souls of his followers into whoever his Nen arrow strikes?

I felt so bad for Killua here having to drag his mostly dead adult sized friend across half a country.
Dont forget he had ragequit staying by said friend side because he got a serious case of broken heart >_>

I'm waiting for him to introduce a character whose nen ability is just called Bull Shit and everyone believes it.

I've liked both of them, but I still wonder why he's titled them the way he has. It's clearly meant to entice people who haven't watched the show, but then he goes and shows spoiler after spoiler (after spoiler) lol. They're mostly minor, but they do add up on videos that long. At least he gave a spoiler warning for the SW/DC stuff in this one, though.

And I'm really glad he touched on those reflections from Togashi on YYH. More people need to be aware of that.

I think that one was more of a "what HxH means to me" than anything =/ like, it moved me a bit but honestly it's an awful video to show people so they get interested in it lol

Ironically his original HxH video is what got me into the manga and I think it was far better as far as getting people interested in the series goes, but I haven't watched it in a while.

I feel like it's a trap a lot of Youtubers fall into: posting a review on a piece of media that isn't really something anyone who isn't already familiar with it should watch, because it's more of an essay on what they enjoyed and thought about it (which can be entertaining in its own right, like this video).

Quick question. Why in the current arc when Illumi was introducing himself to the group, he said that he has two brothers, Killua and Kalluto?

Isn't he forgetting Milluki and his sister Alluka?

Might just be mentioning the brothers that he knows the troupe know.

Yeah, he has no reason to mention Milluki, and definitely not Alluka.

Yup.

Merry christmas :)

Also i just found this on google:

So Hisoka is Kurapika's daddy?

This reminds me that I really should continue watching the show. I started a lomg time ago at the other place but then didn't have time to continue and never got back into it despite lovimg what I saw.
