You got said it before me… Log in to Reply WTF A 42 MINUTE DISCUSSION!! We Hunter x Hunter fans are eating good today! Log in to Reply Yeah I was thinking the same thing lol. Log in to Reply Lmao y’all are the only reactors I’ve watched that will focus on and talk about really unimportant things In the show. The whole soul discussion was weird since I feel like the show explicitly states multiple times that these people are just reincarnated into an ants body so I don’t understand what Eric was so hung up about especially after everything we’ve seen in this show. Log in to Reply sometimes aaron is painful to watch Log in to Reply back in the day the author faced a huge backlash after the girl appeared and said she is kite Log in to Reply the little girl btw was the baby that colt picked up after the queen died Log in to Reply Dear lord Eric. Just accept Kite being Kite in a new body, Reina is Reina in a new body. Same with Colt. The show has told us they are who they are. Man is still not satisfied ? Log in to Reply There’s debate about it tho. Eric is fine with the story saying all of that, but is just stating that there’s equal reason to believe these are new characters. Sure, Reina seems the same as she was, but Colt is a completely different character from birth than he was as Kurt. Saying he’s the ‘same’ person is ignoring all the added humans and animals that went into him. There’s also characters like Meruem who are an amalgamation of humans but solely his own being. So if memories are all that matters to your identity, than the story contradicts itself with Bloster who is identified despite having no memories. So the only explanation is the characters having a soul, which Eric is simply unsure is actually the reason. Saying ‘the show says so’ is a dumb argument against it when he says multiple times he’s fine with that, the same way he’s fine with a clone being fit into the original’s old life despite the fact it is not the original and may be missing key features of the original. Log in to Reply Man. Now I’m even more hyped for the episode 147 reaction. Log in to Reply Blindwave’s journey throughout the series: Episode 1: “Hey this show is called Hunter X Hunter and it’s supposed to be fun.” Episode 136: “Is the soul real?” Log in to Reply So for me: Colt is Colt, but he is not Kurt as Colt actually doesn’t have memory of Kurt and only inherit some personality of Kurt (especially his dedication to someone that he loves), Reina is Reina and Kite is Kite because all of them have the complete memory when they were in their orinigal body, have the same personality, and they identify themselves as Reina. Irrespective of the concept of soul, the show uses the concept of self-identification and possession of memory and personality to determine oneself’s identity, as shown by the title of this episode (if we see this as enough proof that this is the concept that Togashi is going for) Very interesting discussion anyway hahahahahaaaa Anyway, Gon didn’t want to hear information about his mom. Ging asked in the tape, “Do you want to know about your mom”. He stopped the tape and it erased itself. Killua asked “are you sure?” and Gon answered “Yes. I only know Aunt Mito up until now, so I am content to have Aunt Mito as my mother figure” (the wording is not exactly like this, but the point stays the same. It was Kite who wanted to let Gon know about the whereabout of Ging, but Gon refused and argued that he wants to find Ging by himself. Log in to Reply oof Eric was brutal today on the soul discussion. Log in to Reply I feel like Eric is being stubborn about this lol i feel like the show is clear that the person reincarnated in the ants body regardless how sense it actually makes (its an anime with magic so who cares) Log in to Reply time for the most underrated arc in the whole show Log in to Reply I totally get what Eric is saying it is the clone conversation from Rick and Morty all over again. Log in to Reply The fact that not all the ants remember their past, and for the ants that do have memories, each one remembers a different amount leads credence to the idea that they are indeed the individual reborn from death and are not simply mere clones with memories. Log in to Reply I’m said to say it is the end of this great arc and onto another Log in to Reply I’m sad to say it is the end of this great arc and onto another Log in to Reply I’m always down for a discussion on whether the soul is real and what constitutes consciousness lol Log in to Reply The difference between this and having a clone is: in one, you copy and paste a file into another folder while in the other, you cut and paste a file in a new folder Log in to Reply it’s like the amnesia argument. if you lose all your memories permanently, are you still the same person or is your previous “you” dead and you are a new being. Log in to Reply eric is going way to deeply into this… they dont show it in the anime but Gyro is 100% alive and we are told that once he got born as an ant that he just walked out and went to start his gang again. for stuff that is actually in the anime… we know this is kite if ever so slightly different but it is kite Log in to Reply Eric is fine. The series very well can later go into the idea that souls don’t exist. Ants are just beings who take different levels of the victims brain wiring. Frogs and Lions have souls in HxH? It’s no different than the discussion on when clones, Cyborgs, a person turned into an A.I., or a modified person stops being the original. It’s a philosophical discussion older than this series. You’re also all talking with knowledge he does not as of this episode. Log in to Reply Eric is really reaching on this lol I don’t think it was meant to be looked into that deeply Log in to Reply Pitou tells the king that the brain is the best part of the human to eat. we also see her do brain surgery on a human. my theory is that after failing to ressurect kyte, she fed his brain to the queen. thus resulting in baby girl kyte, who is also meruems twin Log in to Reply Eric, love ya but take the L on this one bud. Log in to Reply Obtuse was the correct characterization of Eric given by the rest of the squad. Being obtuse isn’t a compliment, especially in this case. Log in to Reply Oh man, the farther in to the video I go and listen to Eric… just cringe. Log in to Reply Jesus christ, the show literally says “I am Kite”, “I am…” etc. etc etc. Never like seeing smart people acting dumb af. Frustrating to listen to a person argue against what the anime/mange’s narrative LITERALLY spells out. They told you over and over again in the show brother. lmao. Accept it. It ain’t that deep.
