The anime that I wished was real is HUNTER x HUNTER by Togashi Yoshihiro (冨樫 義博). Why? Because I think it would be über cool if Nen (念) was real. Don’t you think so, too?
Am I the only one who tried using the water divination for Nen? That was around 2000 when the first anime adaptation started in 1999. I remembered straining in front of the glass of water with a leaf floating on top for a long time, hoping for something to happen. Ah, those were the good times. Then I was told that Nen wasn’t real. Gasp! It was also the time that I confirmed Santa Claus wasn’t real. Ah, the heartbreak.
If HxH was real, I would love the have Kurapika’s Nen ability. I think his chains are the best weapon because they’re just so dynamic with many uses. Being a specialist that have 100% command of all the Nen types is just too awesome.
It would also be cool if I have a best friend like Killua. He’s extremely strong, not to mention deadly, but he’s willing to sacrifice his own life for his best friend. Although I say “No, thank you” to his insane family. They creep me out, although I find Illumi strangely attractive.
I also wouldn’t mind Hisoka; in fact, I’ll be ecstatic to meet him. Am I the only one who think he’s hot? He’s actually my #1 favourite character in the series. He’s an awesomely cool villain. He’s twisted and creepy, but I just love him. I wonder why.
If HxH was real, I think that I would also take the Hunter Examination and become a hunter. After all, everyone’s vying to obtain the benefits of having a hunter license. Access to the majority of public facilities for free? Freedom to travel around the world? Not to mention that you can sell it for so much that you can’t spend it all while you’re still alive? Anyone?
I wonder what kind of hunter I would be. Hmmm. Is there a “Writing Hunter” or a “Blogging Hunter”? Or perhaps even an “Anime Otaku Hunter”? Hahaha! If so, count me in! I just smell a huge adventure if HxH was real. Of course, it would be dangerous but a million times more interesting. It would be like a Pokemon adventure but without the pokemon. We use our own Nen abilities instead to battle each other. How exciting!
Now you know that HUNTER x HUNTER is the anime that I wish was real. What’s yours?
