But you can counter that remark with, Uvogin being simple and straight forward about his comments (objective).

Still, I'm led to believe the author is changing the back-story slightly, which I don't mind. Cuz its possible to do it.

Well, regardless of why Uvo thought they were doing it, you'd think it'd be somewhat more memorable if they have to go through all the trouble of carefully torturing them in the right order. Maybe a bit... tedious even? Whereas Uvo didn't remember it all until Kurapica reminded him how strong they were.

On the hand I guess he could have just left to go drink beer after the fighting ended while Feitan handled all the torture.

Maybe. But Uvogin's comments at that time aligned with what I thought Chrollo's intentions in attacking the Kurta; because he just like to get the eyes.

But then again, the info we know about the attack is only seen through Kurapika's perspective (who isn't even there, if we go by this special chapters). What could a secluded clan have done to get this kind of (hinted) retribution from the Spider's? And this is the part that does not make sense for me and needed explanation.

( I just have a gut feeling it'll not be explained in the movie...)

Well, almost all the spiders are sociopaths. The flashback explained that they did what they did to enrage the pure blooded clansmen so their eyes would glow more brilliantly when they died. Looking at Kuroro's behavior in the Spiders Arc, he'd see it to be no different than activating special conditions in a game to get a better item.

The other members are loyal to him and also some of them like Uvo wanted to fight strong opponents. Not to mention the people of the falling stars seem to not care for anyone who's not from their land, so it'd be no different than how conquerors destroyed natives in the past.

The small bit sympathy I had for the Spiders after watching the 2012 anime just did a 180 after reading that.

Sick bastards

The spiders were such great villains, Pity we wont get to see Kurapika getting vengeance in the next decade.

Indeed. What makes it doubly annoying is that Togashi's been all ambiguous about how the whole Hisoka/Chrollo/Nen Eraser thing turned out. The brief reference in the Election arc makes it seem like Chrollo ran away from Hisoka (presumably after having Kurapika's Nen erased), but it'd be nice to know for sure. He could've mentioned it during the Spiders' appearance in the Chimera Ant, which while amusing ultimately served no purpose other than to showcase some of their abilities that hadn't been revealed yet.

in the chimera ant arc, i got the feeling that maybe hunter xhunter would be moving to a text heavy format(LN), seeign how togashi started using a very reccurrently a narrator in that arc, by this point maybe we will get those undisclosed parts of the story in the form of anime "fillers", afterall they anime has about one year of original material to go with, i really hope for this, since otherwise poetic justice migth had been a little too optimistic on the ETA.

Most (not all, but most) of the narration can be substituted by character's inner thoughts though.

So volume 32 is out now. How well did Togashi redraw all that chicken scratch from the last few chapters prior to the hiatus? Let's see:






LOOOOOOL. Looks like he can't even be arsed to fix his own art in the volumes anymore, ahahahaha

So, is Hiatus x Hiatus.... I mean Hunter x Hunter returning from hiatus status?
Even if the art is so so, the story is really making up for it, so I kinda wish it didn't go hiatus again after 3-5 chapters.

To be honest, the actual OP will probably be something like that.

Same as usual, it's on hiatus.

The new anime movie is airing soon and they say there'll be an announcement afterwards. Hopefully it'll be the return of the manga, though I won't hold my breath.

Holding your breath for weeks is quite hazardous, whether it comes back or not.

Ok I know my question may have been answered before but i will ask.Why the hell there is such a long hiatus on these series.I mean common I read both in MAL and wikipedia that the series is extremely popular both in and out of Japan not to mention the anime.So is the author sick,out of ideas or just lazy?
