Talking of unexpected brutality - I’ve just started watching the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter. Fúck me, this one got real dark, real quick!
@Nellybert , chimera ant is best arc, all hail Meruem, the one true king
@Nellybert , Jesus Christ it did
@Roland Ravenclaw, I’m only about 5 episodes in - lots of kids and arc 1 characters getting eaten, but no king yet.
@Scottles, Is it a coincidence that this arc was done not long after Game of Thrones came out? Cos it has a definite hint of GoT style brutality.
I see they’re also following the Bleach pattern of fighting - main character has to get their arse kicked by every new baddie they meet, before they can later win.
@Nellybert , the one character that got eaten that I think you're referring to shocked and disturbed me
@Scottles, The sad looking bee that delivered the map was a right kick in the feels.
@Nellybert , Prepare for feels, tears and existentialism my friend.
@Nellybert , we are getting close to spoilers now lol, I dont want to ruin it for anybody
@Scottles, it's weird because they show, had dark moments, but it was mostly happy go lucky until then
@Scottles, Good point, best stop now - besides, I’ve still got 55 episodes left in the arc so I don’t want spoilers either!
@Nellybert , I will just say, it's a crime against humanity that it hasn't continued yet
Its a porg...
