Oh for sure. There's many scenes hinting towards Killua x Gon and I believe it is an insult to Togashi to claim they don't mean anything, because that would imply he is oblivious — and he is anything, but. Everything he does is for a reason.
Itsuki and Sensui are another reason for why I believe Killua x Gon will happen. Thank you for reminding me of them.>>179459283
Yes, that might be the case. Killua being gay would already be a big deal in sh?nen — the first of its kind, but I feel if Togashi is going to do that, he may as well go all the way.>>179459387>Also what's up with fucking anime/manga and having all the pairings be main characters?
I agree; this is a tired trope. But I think, with Hunter x Hunter, it is a natural progression; we get to see Gon and Killua bond, whereas other couples in other sh?nen by other authors don't have that much chemistry — they sort of just get together, because one is a boy and the other a girl. Togashi, on the other hand, knows how to write relationships that are built upon trust and develop from friendship.>if they weren't both like 12.
IIRC they're like 15 by the current arc.>>179459419
Exactly. This is one of the reasons why I think it'll happen, since Shueisha has no control over Hunter x Hunter.
