HxH is very dark in the sense of the storyline. Even though death and murder of characters is not an alien concept to shonen manga, Hunter x Hunter seems to have unusually more violence than all of the other battle manga running in Weekly Shonen Jump; just to put this in perspective, in the previous arc in the manga there were at least 6 murders and half of those murders were on humans!

However it’s not only the story’s progression. The characters themselves are deeper and in a sense more mature than most other characters are portrayed in Weekly Shonen jump mangas – each one of them has a reason for being a Hunter and those reasons tend to be quite psychological.

Hunter X Hunter strikes me as a manga with potential to be seinen.
