Let's just talk about the return of Hunter X Hunter for a minute here.
I have no one to talk about this with, and that is usually when I write a journal entry for absolutely no other reason than to vent.
THIS WAS TOTALLY WORTH A TWO YEAR WAIT!!!!
I don't know how other people are feeling about the recent chapters, but Oh. My. Gosh. They are so amazing! Togashi is such a genius! And not only that, but the artwork is absolutely stunning, and so detailed that I thought I was reading the wrong manga - and even now I still feel that way haha. Everything is so detailed.......[no sketches! Hallelujah!]
I love where the stoy is going! I love that we have seen so much of Ging! Really, we have seen him in almost every chapter, and we've only seen Gon twice. Just long enough to find out he has gone completely back to "normal" and that he can't use gyo anymore.....so before he could properly use nen.....
I am so happy Kurapika is back!!! although he seems a lot different. But him and Leorio back together - and both of them taking Ging and Pariston's spots in the Zodiacs - I just love it. And, honestly, I have thoroughly enjoyed watching Ging hang out with all of Pariston's buddies haha. Playing Mario and all of that...I thought that part was pretty funny ^^ And that one guy that Ging punched in the face is pretty funny himself, too.
And then finding out about Don Freecss! Gah! I hope Gon does go to the DC....well, I guess he's gonna have to somehow, right? Or we will need a new main character. But whoever Don is, I can't wait to meet him. A 300 year old grandpa of Gon? Yeah. Seems legit. He's gotta be so strong!
Oh! And then the size of everything on the DC? Dang. Togashi is going to have a great time drawing all of those gigantic monsters....
Also, Kurapika and that creepy prince...It took me reading it twice to realize that the prince was actually that freaky guy who murdered those girls in his room. The naked guy with the hot tub surrounded by blood? Yeah. Good luck Kurapika. The three months on the Black Whale are going to be very interesting to read about if only because of Kurapika and the Prince. But I can't help but wonder, what is Kurapika going to do with the eyes if he does get them from him? And why would he take them on the ship in the first place? They are going to the DC - who knows if they are ever coming back haha. Where would they put them? But, like everything, I am sure Togashi has it all figured out to a T.
I can't wait to read farther into this arc....my mind is already blown by the attention to detail, artwork, overall flow, and amazing characters that have been introduced, and we are only 6 chapters into the new arc!
