If HUNTER x HUNTER Was Real. . . .

Day 29:  An Anime You Wished Was Real

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?

  1. My Favourite is Killua Zoldyck because he is my first love since I watched the Hunter x Hunter. I wish they are real. Even if takes me something hard just for them to be real. sigh

    1. I know, right? It would be awesome is the world on HxH is real. It would be scary but it would be awesome as well. Killua is not my #1 fave character in the series but I like him better than Gon. I love his newcharacyer design in the 2011 adaptation. It was much cooler than the original one. Anyway, thanks for dropping by. Take care. Cheers!


  2. My favorite is Biscuit Kruenger (Magical Esthetician) and Kurapika’s (Emperor Time) Nen …~ Hahaha…I really enjoyed hopping on your blogs about HxH… Cool Aria!

    I will be a Double Star TREASURE HUNTER … ❤

    “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.

    I laughed about being a blogger Hunter.. XD

    1. Ooooh. Biscuit’s Nen sounds good, too, I admit. It would be better than going to a spa or a plastic surgeon. But like you, my favourite Nen is still Kurapika’s.

      Interesting. What kind of treasure are you hoping to hunt?

      Ehehe. Well, there are Gourmet Hunter, so I guess that there should be Blogging Hunter, too. 😉

      1. Rare Items and Precious Stones that will make rich in the Auction Culture.. haha! I just find it cool. Aside from that, I can be a Music Hunter as well.. Remember Melody? In real life, I am a blogging hunter just like you.. hahaha! :)) Really nice article about HxH! ^^~

      2. Sounds good about the rare items and precious stones. It can make you rich quick if you find a special rare item. Sounds like a lot of work to hunt those things, but I guess that’s part of the adventure.
        Oh? So do you play any instruments?

      3. It seems that Togashi-sensei is still on hiatus. Oh well. As expected of him. I hope that he’s able to finish up the entire series before I become an old woman. I would like to find out how it ends since it’s one of my favourites.

      4. Ah yeah! Togashi sensei! ^^~ Me too…I am excited to find out what’s next after Gon have found Ging Freecs… Or is it only that the goal of the plot. I hope not.. I hope there’s more coz it’s really a goooood anime! ❤

      5. The manga is currently in the Dark Continent Arc. Ging is also involved in it, so I guess that Gon has found a new goal, to discover what lies beyond the known world. Unfortunately, it’s been a while since Togashi-sensei released a chapter.

      6. His publisher says that he’s been suffering some health problems, but there are many fans who speculate that he’s just feeling lazy. As a fan, I would like to believe the health problems part rather than the laziness rumours.

      7. As an already published manga artist for Shounen Jump, I’m sure he’ll be provided with several assistants to help him. But of course, the assistants can’t do anything if sensei himself doesn’t start drafting the manga.

    1. Oh honey, I completely understand how you feel. My favourite character in the series is Hisoka & I feel kind of attracted to Illumi. I think one of the reasons why we feel this way is that the series did a great job in making most of the characters, especially the villains, dynamic. They have depth, and you can somehow understand them, even want to be like them. So go ahead and become a Spider, if HxH becomes real. I’ll be hunting you down.

      Anyway, thanks for dropping by. Cheers!


  3. Well if you like nen so much i can tell you one thing not nen but energy manipulation and psionics are real BELEIVE me i ain’t lying try to serach them on google and see videos on youtube about “how to make psi-ball” or psionics or telekinesis. Hope you not found any role-play sites they insult psionics in role-playing infact psionics are real i can tell you some OEC sites which have explaination and are not fake on of them is community.psionnation.com, psi.wikia.com, etc go there and see threads you will find out


  4. Hmm, I’m not sure if I wanna see Chimera Ants (but now that they’re at peace with humans now, I think I won’t mind meeting one). Though having Nen must be really super cool!

    1. Ahaha. Same here. I don’t want to meet a Chimera Ant, tame or not. You never know when they’ll succumb to their wild instincts and bite your head off, you know. 😉
      I agree! Having Nen must be super cool. Do you have a Nen power that you would like to have?


      1. Kurapika’s Nen is my favorite, because it’s extremely detailed! But its use is not my thing. Maybe I’ll want to have Hisoka’s instead. It can be convenient in everyday use, don’t you think?

      2. Me, too! My favourite is Kurapika’s Nen. It’s just so awesome and powerful, but it just feels too dangerous and not to mention deadly for me. Yes, I also like Hisoka’s Nen, too. How about Kurapika’s? What do you think?
