i am a single father and my daughter is going through that demon summoning phase but shes really successful with it and all of these hellish monsters keep showing up in our small rural village, however i am very cute and the monsters all want to kiss me
my ideal video game would be survival horror that slowly turns into a dating sim because the monsters think im cute
hxh asks you to believe that gon and killua are Very Special Children who are more than qualified to be hunters. you can reject that premise or engage with it, but drawing a line in the sand between the Bad Adults and the exceptions (your faves) is not at all tenable.
so without further ado,
unappreciated child endangerment moments of hunter x hunter 😳
mito gave gon the parental consent he needed to take the hunter exam, full stop. she didn’t have to, and if his safety was a concern of hers, it somehow wasn’t important enough to bring up to him or her grandmother.
kurapika and leorio’s reactions to watching a child being forced to beat up another child. canary is extremely distressed to have to choose between this and punishment, but they are simply waiting for gon to wear her down, no matter how battered he gets in the process.
leorio encourages gon and killua to hunt the world’s most dangerous criminals for their reward money. he doesn’t go with them (he can’t use zetsu), he doesn’t stop them, and he doesn’t check on them.
no really, he forgot all about them.
kurapika angsts about letting the children help him hunt down aforementioned criminals who have already captured them, but he does it anyway…guess what happens.
melody is not all concerned that a 12 year old is joining them.
a video game where you could die? he told them to be careful. #responsibility
i’m pretty sure no one’s actually forgotten that knuckle fought gon and was on board with him joining the extermination team, or approves of those actions. i just wanted to poke at whatever cognitive dissonance that makes him “one of the good ones.”
leorio’s election speech, which is often held up as his finest moment, has him comparing himself unfavorably to gon’s “heroism” and fully aware of the danger killua has put himself in to help gon. no condemnation for the adults who allowed them to be in these situations (which would include him for the second case), only praise for his friends’ bravery.
if your reaction to all this is “but these adults CARE about the children!” ask yourself why you find this behavior compatible with care. if it’s because of the suspension of disbelief required for a battle shounen, you’re gonna have extend that same charity to a lot more of the adult characters.
i hate how 80% of gings connections w folks is him being a thot and obviously having an affair w them which is probably why most of his friends love him but will also fucking murder him on sight
FIRST OF ALL i cant believe how many ppl are tagging this w “i never thought of him as a thot before but u right” LIKE REALLY???? ging has the most thot energy like just absolute bastard thot energy EVERY SINGLE person who talks abt him sounds like theyre talking abt a distant ex lover the real reason dwun hates ging isnt a fucking secret its bc ging forgot his name after a one night stand YALL OPEN UR THIRD EYE
ANYWAYS SECONDABLE this has me ROLLIN
Ging is literally the ugliest yet somehow attractive man i have ever seen something about those eyes that dirty beard greasy looking hair that long gone will to live is….. Sexy
MOOD. it’s sometimes hard for me to look at his face sometimes bc he’s so ugly but overall he’s rlly sexy… The man’s got irresistible charisma. He’s an asshole and yet his personality is so endearing as well.
Imagine how pariston was strongly looking forward to having a sexually charged competition with ging after their first meeting he canonically imagined how the entire election would go and concluded that ging would have won in the end,, and then ging bailed the election after the first round 💀
I really won’t be shocked if pariging somehow becomes canon in the future because that pales in comparison to whatever the loving fuck was going on in the scene during the revival of meruem
i’m making that shocking, shocking assertion that pariston is a natural manipulator.
this isn’t based off the personality test. most of the descriptions are too vague; you could make a case for him being anything but an enhancer or an emitter. and nen is influenced by one’s entire individuality: desires, emotions, convictions, ways of interacting with others…
what do we know about pariston as an individual?
his impact on the story (both on screen and off) has been as a hunter politician, one who’s been working in secret to create the conditions for beyond’s return to the dark continent. he’s high ranking but he doesn’t rely on direct orders; more often he persuades, tricks, or coerces people into doing what he wants. it’s not a stretch to say we see him do little else besides manipulation.
A Pariging Vampire + Werewolf AU!
High Priestess of Yorknew, Cheadle Yorkshire, is troubled by recent developments. Livestock and people have started to disappear or end up slaughtered, and people turn to her and the church in hope of saving.
Could it truly be that the new owner of the hillside mansion has something to do with it?
Investigating by herself may be more dangerous than she thinks..
Chapter 4: The Finale.
I know not everyone’s a fan of madhouse’s style for some characters but can we appreciate this huge size difference they made between pariston and ging?
