The cutest, swipe>> I don’t rly ship anyone in the anime except for komugi and meruem of course, I also ship hisoka + illumi too but I still find these moments of Leorio and kurapika so adorable, and I love kurapika and chrollo, I want them too fight so bad! I care more about fights than shipping people unless the characters are actually a ‘thing’ in the manga or show #leopika#leorio#kurapika#hxh
Day Seven: Knuckle Bine
I’m not fully finished with the 2011 Hunter X Hunter series. I’m near the end of the Chimera Ant Arc, which introduced me to this amazing character.
He acts super tough, but is extremely sensitive and easily moved emotionally. When he’s supposed to fight Gon in a battle to kill the other, he instead goes out of his way, albeit subtly, to teach him to improve himself. And every time they’d meet for battle, it would be first a puppy, then a few more dogs, then a pack of dogs congregating around him as he decides to give them all food. It turns out some of the best hunters are loved by wildlife. It helps that he has an affinity toward dogs.
Even when in pursuit it of the chimera ants, he would have dogs following him. And he’s sorrowful that he isn’t able to save them all. And when it comes to saving lives, he will go out of his way. From where I’m currently at, it’s two episodes that cover one minute of an infiltration (it sounds stupid, but it’s so amazingly well done). In that minute, while cloaked thanks to Meleoron (another amazing character), he manages to get two hits in on one of the chimera ant King’s Royal Guard. When plans go in the crapper, he’ll adapt however he can.
I’m looking forward to finishing this arc and seeing more of Knuckle. Though it’s a Shonen trope, I love how his tough guy attitude is seen not just because of how he becomes easily moved and cries, but because animals expose him to the person he really is. Also, I like his Nen ability. It forces him to be good at math. #hunterxhunter#knucklebine#nen#tough#sensitive#dogs#math#levelhead#chimeraant#loan#meleoron#lessons#31daysofcharacters
Another funny scene in hunter x hunter 1999, btw I prefer English dub in HxH 1999 but I still like it in Japanese, although I really rlly hate the English dub in 2011 version, so I prefer watching it in Japanese, I like watching most anime’s in Japanese #hunterxhunter1999#hxh#illumi#zoldyck#hisoka#hanzo
