Wow, It's been quite a while since I've been on here! I hope everyone else is doing great :D. I see some cool changes on here and it brings back so many memories. I'll be sure to find some time later in the week to come here and do some editing ^_^.
If any of my favorite editors wants to have a chat with me... Or maybe someone I don't know.... よろしくお願いします！Read more >
Since it's been talked about over and over and repeatedly confirmed as something that should be done, despite my reservations about possibly overstepping by creating a page I've decided to start putting one together. However, since I'm not sure whether or not it's better to have one page for both Alluka and Nanika or separate ones, I'd like to ask that while still putting together a new page.
Obviously I won't be actually submitting it until I'm actually done with it, but I'd like to ask if there's any hard necessities for a page or suggestions for things you guys think are necessary - otherwise I'll just be copying the format seen on other character pages. Fair warning/reminder that I'm new to the whole thing and might end up doing a lot o…Read more >
Since Gon's page is still locked and no final decision has been reached despite us commenting on OPN's related blog, I'm forced to write this here.
I have recently expanded the decriptions of Gon's Nen abilities in the template. What however is still missing is Gon's technique called "Aiko" (translated as "Round 2" by Viz), from chapter 209, and later mentioned again in chapter 211. Gon uses it against Knuckle to use two of his Jajanken abilities in quick succession. Its exact mechanics are explained in chapter 211: Gon builds up twice the normal amount of aura for a Jajanken attack, so he expends half for the first ability and then half a few seconds later for the second. It failed against Knuckle because when he used it, he reached 0 P.A…Read more >
Recently, I asked a Japanese native speaker to investigate something for me. It is about the description of Netero's The Zero Hand provided by the narrator. Multiple translations of the manga and subs of the anime say Netero "turned his aura into light". Taken out of context, this could be either literal, implying Transmutation was used, or metaphorical. Viz seems to have opted for the latter version, since they translated it along the lines of "fired his aura as a flare".
For this reason, I enlisted someone else's help to see what the original text said (it's chapter 297, by the way). He said:
' The original word for "turn" is "変える". This word contains the same kanji as "変化 (pronounced as henka)" (to transmute) of "変化系 (henkakei)" (Transmut…Read more >
I'd like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and also here's to hoping that in 2017 the Hunter × Hunter Manga is continued again!Read more >
Just wanted to let you guys know that pre-reg has opened for HunterxHunter World Hunt . No word on when the game proper is gonna come out, but you can sign up with your email or twitter.
So if you're not up to speed on what it is, er...
There's not really a lot of info as to what the game actually is about, but it seems like you're legit in Greed Island or something very similar. No clue if there's a storyline, but it seems like there isn't. You make your own character and fight alongside canon characters. It's a turn-based RPG from what I can tell, but there's also going to be a real-time Guild Battle mode, whatever that's going to mean. There are also puzzle/quiz elements.
Here's a gameplay video from the beta test that was held for Android…Read more >
So it has come to my sad attention that we are no longer an edit war free wikia. Thanks to Martialmaniac and Hiatusxhiatus2 this is no longer the case well done guys. You should have come to one of the admins much sooner in stead of warmongering amongst yourselves. Shame on you, shame (ding ding) shame (ding ding ding) shame (ding ding ding). So what is the issue. Well the issue is the contradiction in the ages of Gon and Killua because according to the time span taken up by the story they are one age and by the guidebook they are another. Martial and Hiatusxhiatus are hereby invited to each make their plea for their view on the age issue without mentioning the other person. Can you please do that guys. Also everyone else is free to join t…Read more >
Somebody sent me a detailed HxH timeline. I haven't checked all of it, and the events followed by an asterisk are not confirmed to have happened precisely at that time, but the number of years that have passed and the last few arcs are overall correct. Can we make an article about it? I think it would be very helpful. As a source for the year, we have this page, for example.
To that list, we should add:
- September 8th, 1970: Nobunaga was born.
- May 5th, 1987: Gon was born.
- July 7th, 1987: Killua was born.
It also confirms Gon and Killua are 14 now (they were 13 the last time we saw them though). If the databook ages of Kurapika and Leorio refer to when they took the Hunter Exam, then they now are 20 and 22. Also, this implies the medic made…Read more >
Yoshihiro Togashi has been on and mostly off the manga and it is because of his back pains but what happens if he dies? Is the hxh series over forever and all hope is lost or is it sold to highest bidder. i don't know but i'm curios if it will end with him or mangas can be passed on in a will or something?Read more >
There is Only One Thing I Hate About Hunter x Hunter and That Is The Wait for a new Chapter/Volume. Who the heck wants to wait that long for an update?Read more >
I just realized that for the sake of coherence, every time Netero is addressed on his page (or on any other page) we should use his first name, not his surname. Not so much because it has become confusing now that his son has appeared, but because we call every other character by name (and it would be silly to do otherwise). So I suggest we replace all the "Netero"'s on his page with "Isaac"'s, clearly excluding those parts where his full name is necessary.
Thoughts?Read more >
ok i want to make a friendly bet on how long until the manga comes back again if ever. no money, WEARE PLAYING FOR BRAGGING RIGHTS! who ever guesses the closest time to the next manga chapter release wins and those who say it is not coming back will win if he dies before any chapters come out. you can not give a span of time i.e. 4-8 months. no! you need to guess by the month or week. acceptable answers are: 3 months or 2 weeks or 1 year and 7 days, or 234 days or 3 months and 3 weeks.my guess is 5 months from the day this is posted.
reason- i don't know its a guess Read more >
I know that I should of have made this blog post earlier, but since I'm still new to the Hunterpedia I wanted to write a blog telling a little bit about myself. So I'm a HUGE fangirl of Hunter x Hunter and so I thought that I could contribute more to the Hunterpedia. Although, I do have some experiance with other wikias, such as the Steven Universe wikia that I have gotten up to 1,573 fricking edits on! And if your wondering why my dumb username is called Derpy Diamond, It's kind of related to Yellow Diamond from Steven Universe, so I added Derpy in it too make it cuter. So yeah........ I also really wanted to do a blog post. And yes, I spelled the title wrong. I don't call myself Derpy Diamond for nothing.Read more >
A super quick blog post concerning Uvo's Nen abilities. I think we may have to:
- remove Rock Storm from his Nen abilities (
we can put the image near to the Strategy partEDIT: since he still uses aura, we should mention what he can do in the Nen section, but not the template), since he does not seem 1- to consider it a Nen technique (it does not have a name), 2- to require Hatsu to use it, which means it is not a Hatsu ability;
- move all the content from "Durability" to the "Nen" section, since it is the effect of his Ren (or Ken) and not a property of his body.

Jump Ryu Vol.21 was released on November 2nd, 2016.

Hi everyone! Today I felt a bout of nostalgia, which is why I came back even though we are still on hiatus (that, and the fact I'm on reading week). As we have probably all noticed, the "Triva" section of som epages is a bit cluttered. I'd like to suggest a way to tidy it up a little with the minimum effort.
My idea is to divide it in "Diegetic Trivia and Databook Information" (on Zeno's page "Bungee Gum was named after a brand of chewing gum", and also content from the databook and the Hisoka oneshot), "Anime and Manga Differences" (on Kite's page, "Kite's childhood was not revealed in the manga", as well as differences between the 1999 and the 2011 anime), "Intertextuality and References" (on Killua's page, "Killua may be based off Hiei […Read more >
Working on more right now, but here's a link to what I've got done so far! I have the entirety of Osu! Training and The Serious vs. The Insane done, with a handful of translator's notes for the sake of maybe changing some wording around. I plan on cranking out Tonpa and Leorio's songs tomorrow - it all depends on whether or not I can find transcripts of the lyrics, basically, and I have Tonpa's and Leorio's.Read more >
So instead of working on my own two wiki's (animedatabase and stargateprogram) I spend the entire day going over the clustefuck which is the Alluka drama. So yeah olive-kun I have now read your entire document and I can't see Japanese for a while. You did make some valid points and I was a bit to short sighted and annoyed at you to give it fair consideration and I apologize for that. So how do I now stand on this issue first off it increased my hatred for traps and ambiguous characters secondly there seems to be enough evidence in favor for changing the pronouns even though I think the page should remain neutral. So I am leaving it up to Dark-chan she can decide what we do with the page (except if she wants to remove the gender ambiguity s…Read more >
Hello! I guess some others might have noticed too that there is no english translation of the lyrics of the song The Eyes Burning with Scarlet (Kurapika Character Song). Since I do not enough knowledge of the Japanese language to translate the lyrics, I request someone who knows Japanese well to translate it.
Thank you!Read more >
recently wrote about a Hunter I invented. THis one is based on my own interests so it was easy for me to design him and his nen skills. I want you guys to share some Hunter ideas as well. Who knows maybe we can help the author come up with ideas he could use in the future installations as well:
As you might have noticed I accidentally posted this as "new page " I though page and blog post are the same, but commenting isn't enabled there. I hope that is okay but if not I hope admins would just delete that. thanks

This is just a personal rant which I will probably soon delete, but I find it unnerving how many of the most popular videos on Hunter x Hunter are blatantly based on material from the "Trivia" section of several pages, yet the wikia is not cited anywhere. Of course, many people can have the same idea without one plagiarizing another source, but sometimes even the language is the same. It's unpleasant.
Edit: I obviously found myself unable to remove this blog post. If an admin can delete it, they are free to do so.Read more >
Disclaimer: There will be spoilers, and the formatting will be terrible.
I'm pretty late on this, but Shalnark and Kortopi are pretty dead right now. Even with antagonists in the HxH universe, I often still come out feeling a bit sad. I mean, think of all the lost backstory and fights! Of course, some characters may have run their course/purpose already, but still. So, in order to make myself feel better, I'm going to attempt to judge each member of the Phantom Troupe on their actions and deserve/likely to get killed by Hisoka/Kurupika-ness, and hope that any inevitable deaths sting a little less (Ponzu: Never Forget).
- The Evidence- Well, he killed two chimera ants. Kalluto also failed to conceal himself from Hisoka in the Gre…

The publisher official's voice: The hiatus will be extremely short this time. However, he will draw at least 3 or more chapters before publishing so I can't say he's resuming next week. Readers may think Mr. Togashi's long-term hiatus is natural and he'll take a break for 1~2 years, but this time that is unlikely to happen (laughs). Actually, in every issue of weekly Shōnen Jump there are hints given out that the series will be resuming soon. Only the editors might realize this aim of intention. Mr. Togashi is trying to work.
Forgive me for my crappy translation skills. I hope this great news is true.

I love the idea of Gon and Killua becoming couple. Gon is the first friend Killua ever had. He helped Killua learn how to have fun. He didn't dismiss Killua when he told him that he came from a family of assassins. After meeting at the hunter exam the two do pretty much everything together. Saving Gon's life was the motivation that helped Killua free himself from Illumi's control. When Gon was almost done using the restriction and convenant that nearly cost him his life he tried to give comforting words to Killua. There's that little chibi clip where Killua kisses Gon. Killua blushes whenever Gon compliments him. After Gon is done using the restriction and convenient the first thing Killua did was take him to a hospital. They get along ver…Read more >
Do you guys notice the world map condition of HxH world is similar with flat earth theory??
Dark continent and the land beyond antartica...

I just saw a clip of when chimera ant Kite was talking to Koala and these questions just popped. I know these are all gonna be speculations and theories so answer away.
1) Does female kite have human body containing chimera ant genetics? If yes, would this mean she has now the capabilty to produce a stronger offspring through phagogenesis?
2) Did female Kite retain crazy slots?
3) Wont female Kite be considered the new Queen/King since she was born after the King? Or was she born as a soldier level ant?
4) Who is stronger? The original Kite or the female Kite?
5) do you think we'll see Kite in the DC arc? Maybe Ging would hire her?Read more >

The series will be on hiatus starting from chapter 361, meaning this is the last chapter we'll get in a while. Crying is allowed. Oh well, at least, we'll have time to fix everything that needs fixing. Like every other time.Read more >
Post any hatsu concepts you believe would be useful, paramount or invaluable for the Palace Invasion. Unlike the previous Hatsu Concepts board, you'll need to say how and why it would be effective for the mission; they could revolve around scouting, diversion, or simply combat focused that would be effective at fighting enemies stronger than yourself. That being said however, any combat heavy hatsu's would mostly have to revolve around the "Hit and Fade" strategy Knuckle and Shoot employ, aiming to hinder and handicap the enemy rather than blatantly defeat them. Also, because it would be used during the palace invasion arc, you are able to incorporate the other characters hatsu's into your explanation also, I.e Meleoron and God's Accomplic…Read more >
Can we add these stats to the pages of the chimera ants and each calamity? Rather, does anyone know how to make a grid? It would be an interesting addition. This information is from volume 33. Their meaning is explained here. Since the classification was made by V6 (I think), should we explain the stats on that page?
For those who, like me, are dumb, the different values in the parentheses should mean that, depending on the conditions, the threat level may rise to the valor inside the parentheses.
Also, information regarding Brion and Zobae contradicts the unofficial translation of chapter 346. Can anyone veify what Cheadle says in the official translation? Or check the Japanese raws? Thank you in advance.Read more >
A list of pages that we need to add while we debate on what to do with the inferred Nen type system:
- Tokkou's Head Undersecretary (the blond guy who reads about the calamities; I received permission from Darkchylde to make a page on him looong ago. His title is specified in chapter 359)
- Tokyarine (chapter 359)
- Woody (chapter 359)
- Nanika (voted)
- Borizoi (Hisoka's past)
- Kishita (Hisoka's past)
- Yasuda (Hisoka's past)
I may be unable to access Viz for a few months, so someone else will have to make sure the names are corrected when the official chapter comes out, sorry. Also, congrats to whoever made the page about the Black Whale, I was going to add it to the list.Read more >
The Nen types of abilities are getting a bit out of hand. I do believe we can infer certain things from the laws within the story. It is what is done on the Fairy Tail wiki for Magic types, and the A Song of Ice and Fire wiki regularly mentiones theories and multiple possibilities, clearly specifying what they are, because otherwise information is lacking: Hunter x Hunter, like other works, is not just made out of incontrovertible facts, hints and ambiguities are also relevant. Denying them means impoverishing the wiki.
Still, we need to be precise. We have to say when the Nen type of an ability is something we inferred, and when it is confirmed. There are so many things we give for granted. Absurdly, not even Killua's Lightning Bolt was co…Read more >

Long time since a write in the blog, but i was constantly reading yours.
I have this question since the previews chapter (Desseption 2) and it was that, if Hisoka could reconstruct his hand and his foot with bungie gum, why he didnt make it in the combat??
It was obvious that he lost the fiight with Kuroro in that moment.

In the light of the recent revelations (Nanika comes from the Dark Continent, hence she is a separate entity from Alluka), MrGenial and I were debating whether it would be useful to add a page for Nanika. Changes to Alluka's page would be relatively minor: we would only have to add a link to Nanika's page, add in Alluka's infobox that Nanika is her, for example, "alter ego/?" (I was hoping to find a second term that clarified the two live in a symbiotic relationship, but I cannot find one in English), and we were wondering if move most of the information on whish-granting to Nanika's page or leave it as it is on Alluka's page and copying it on Nanika's. The last modification to Alluka's page would be the categories (not a Nen …Read more >
Short but important blog, people, check these out:
I don't have the authority to edit Alluka's page, but I'd like to take this chance and suggest again that we make a separate page for Nanika (and Nanika thinks of herself as a gendered being, so, while she may technically not even be alive, she is female XD). Implications:
1. Nanika is a separate entity from Alluka
2. Nanika is female (from previous material)

I did not think twice about it, but reading around, there is a possibility Hisoka's surname is "Morrow" and not "Morow". Why is it hard to tell? Because his surname was revealed by the announcer, who cried out his name as "Hisoka-a-a-ah Mo-o-o-o-o-rrrro-o-o-o-ow", and she also rolls the "r" in "Lucifer" (Luci-iii-ferrrrr), but not the double "l" in "Chrollo". The katakana would remain the same regardless of the number of "r"s. In my defense I can also add that many English-sounding names/surnames have been modified by Viz not to be too obvious ("Freecss" instead of "Freaks", "Paradinight" instead of "Paladinight", "Knov" instead of "Knob", "Mascher" instead of "Mushroo" are some examples, the exceptions being "Neon" and "Light".
