So why, exactly, do I adore HUNTER X HUNTER?
And no, this is not a rhetorical question. It's actually something I've been asking myself for a couple of years now. When I first saw the art from the series, I dismissed it as unappealing: the predomination of battle scenes tagged HxH as an all-too-standard boys' fighting show, and the main characters were so young that I figured it must be for kids.

Looking back, of course, it's obvious that I was pretty much wrong on both counts. Nonetheless, my initial impressions kept me from watching the show for most of its initial run. It wasn't until two or three friends finally babbled enough about how wonderful the characters were that I actually got around to downloading some fansubs and checking it out.

And now? Well, now I have enough HxH cels to warrant their own seperate gallery, and that should tell you something about how magnificent this series is.
