Sorry for the late reply, some stuff got in the way but I did finish HxH. I found the ending of HxH to be quite good, when I figured out why they brought the Accompany card I was actually pleasantly surprised and enjoyed how the 1999 version had a pretty decent ending when HxH still goes on until today. It's a shame they could only bring three cards and used them up at the end, I would've loved if they kept a certain, literal ace up their sleeve of an Angel's Breath or something for when a fight was wayyyyy too difficult for them.
I enjoyed the final fight with Bomber but I do think it was a bit lackluster to have a random bad guy introduced at the end of the series to be the final bad guy defeated by Gon, still a great fight though.
>Yeah in the Hunter eaxm. He was suppressing his Nen without knowing what Nen was which got Hisoka very excited.
Alright, that's pretty cool I like that.
>Like you say the Dodgeball starts with bullshit "let me just copy" myself but then you have to respect the rules, emission is not efficient, enhancement makes you more powerful, In can hide nen....ect
Honestly, after you explained Nen and I actually started to pay attention to what was happening in the show I started to enjoy it more. I originally thought it was bullshit powers that were limited by whatever Togashi wanted to limit them by, but after finishing the dodgeball fight and the fight with The Bomber I finally saw that it was a lot more deeper than it seemed.
When he split into 7 copies he didn't really have any other ability beyond that, he was just powerful himself and once I noticed that I enjoyed the fight a bit more because he was VERY powerful but that was the limit of his power which Gon, Killua and Hisoka were able to bypass. Also, Hisoka being on their side for a bunch of episodes was great.
>I was refreshing up on Nen after reading this thread and it's interesting to even look at something as basic as the category hexagon.
In a way, I wish Nen was explained either during fights or in a way that wasn't so God damn boring. When they were explaining this hexagon I really thought it wouldn't be that important but I guess I was wrong. Reading the explanation in this thread was honestly much better than how it was done in the anime imo, but that could've just been me.
>again logical progression and it's feels natural that the further you go the harder it is to master the other category.
That explains a lot actually, I did wonder why they just made it so there are 0% chances to master a certain Nen ability but it does make sense if it follows logic.
Anyhow, I don't think I'll jump on the manga yet or the 2011 anime anytime soon, but if Togashi actually gets around to finishing HxH sometime I may read through it and see how I feel about it as it goes on.
