Oh yeah, the whole build up to the deeper levels of the demon realm, and how they only rule like half of the first floor when there are like an infinite/unknown amount of depth with stronger demons the deeper you go, reminds me of how Togashi built up the Dark Continent.

Yu Yu Hakusho trolled me!!

all that sick build up in the last arc only for it to shift into a tournament arc? I mean it could be cool anyway but I wish they had went more toward a war/espionage route

Nothing about Three Kings specifically, but you can read his final reflections here:

Bro this guy really is Gon. Even at the end with his apology it really hit me lmao.

Well it definitely shows in the work. I thought the latter third or so of the Sensui arc started going downhill. It had such a great start. But it also sounds like hell what he was going through so highkey good for him that he got out of that when he could.

More random comparisons.

HxH and YYH both described energy powered attacks as "being hit by a hammer" early on. In HxH is was when Gon was fighting the dude with the spinning tops. In YYH, I think it was one of the early fights of the Dark Tournament?

Kurama's sinning tree thing, and that one calamity in HxH sound similar.

On a side note, the Demon World in HxH kinda gives me an idea of how the Dark Contienent could be like (if we ever get there). Though the Dark Continent seems way more afflicted with these strange dangers, as opposed to the Demon World which just seems dangerous because there's a lot of killers basically lol.

Yeah, he just wanted it to be done. Here's the last page from the manga. :p

I recommended it earlier, but check out Hell's Paradise: Jigokuraku if you want some DC vibes (all chapters up on MangaPlus).

bruh... I'm sure he's learned enough from Yusuke not to be serious about that.

But he's still yet to learn lessons about pride from Gon. Just let other people draw your manga goddamnit. This is why he's been written out of the story smh

Yeah that manga has been in my mind since you've mentioned it before. Not sure how interested I am in a whole story that's just about that kind of land. The DC feels so monumental, mindblowing and scary af to me because of the status quo and worldbuilding that HxH has had built up before that point.

I do want to check out level E though.

Level E is peak togashi.
Yup. And those volume comments too, heh.

Pride, indeed. Though aggravating, it's respectable.

One of his assistants on YYH actually did a little series about his time working for him, and this little exchange with his editor shows it all really.

Forget the volumes, he just explained all of his toughy process... INSIDE THE DAMN CHAPTER

Id even k if I'd call it that at this point with the amount of hell he'd have to put himself through to keep doing it. He needs to let go imo

He's fine with someone else doing the art, just not for his bigger series. He did the story for this little thing back in 2017.


But yeah, if he doesn't eventually team up with an artist, we'll be lucky to even get to the DC, let alone finish it.

“This wont do well in a shonen magazine, also it’s too long, make it less than thirty pages, and add some fights to it idk”
“Nah, i’m good”
Yeah, and the fact that it was a monthly series running in Weekly Shonen Jump lol.

One of its chapters was actually in the same issue that Yu-Gi-Oh premiered. And look who's also on the cover!

With all the JoJo connections in the current arc, I am curious how much he continues this. I imagine Halkenburg's arrow has a big role to play.

T Sandwich is going to get like 5 nen beasts and have all the major Jojo villain stands. Reverse time, stop time, predict and alter the future and maybe even resetting the universe. He'll make Meruem look like a chump. He'll also become a vampire. He'll also turn Theta into his gimp.

Knowing Togashi it will be based on people trying to learn his Nen ability instead of Kira's hidden identity. Then everyone gets skinned and mutilated and the day restarts over again.

terrorsandwich resets the universe, but one of the side effects is gon's nen has regenerated. Gon then punches him and beats him.

They just tell Gon that T. Sandwich turned Killua into a lamp and Gon will turn 80 and sink the entire Black Whale with a single punch.

Yes! At this point, I'm so used to seeing people say they're so confused, and then they follow this with the fact that they've been skimming/skipping text entirely. :P



I can check the official translation if you need anything clarified.

I never claim to be reading it right. I knew exactly what I was doing.

I did actually read some chapters, mostly ones before all the ship stuff starts. Then I skimmed a bunch just to kinda see where it was going.

Though tbh, I'd probably wait till when Viz (hopefully) adds the chapters to the vault. See below for some comparison pics.

lol he gonna have a hard time during the "Predator" pages.
I think I'm gonna start putting together some of the more egregious panels/pages. :p
