Over the last 2 or 3 months, I've been immersing myself in the world of Yoshihiro Togashi's Hunter X Hunter. I've watched the entirety of the 2011 anime and 1 of its companion movies, I'm slowly making my way through 1999 anime with my mom and sis, and I've read a couple chapters of the manga. This stuff is addictive, and very, very compelling, though I do have issue with a few things here and there.
The first couple episodes of the 2011 anime were your typical boys-go-adventuring story. Very much like Pokémon, only with less girls. (There aren't a whole lot of girls in the 2011 version, and there's even less in the 1999 version. I didn't even notice until my mom pointed it out, since I was the only girl for 12 years in my family. It's weird when you start counting how many stories have x boys + 1 girl, and I don't like counting.)
( Now for main cast introductions! )
