    Latest chapter of HxH was hilarious. Didn't even bother reading through all of that text

    No idea why Togashi doesn't just make it a visual novel

    World building: Sure, for now.
    Toriko skipped the best parts of it and more though

    Action: They both do it differently. I don't think one is necessarily worse than than the other.
    Complex powers: No.
    Monsters: Yes. Considering its the main focus of Toriko.
    Characters: No.

    Toriko's world building was "bigger the better" so no it doesn't have better world building

    World building? Maybe
    Action? No
    Powers? No
    Monsters? Yes
    Characters? No

    Toriko should be better since it builds off of HxH to an extent. Read the first chapters of both manga to see what I mean. Toriko took the idea of Gourmet Hunters like Menchi and Buhara from the Hunter Exams and made an entire manga based on that. Toriko just became really hard to read after the introduction of Food Honor for me and apparently for a lot of people since sales took a hit after that which led to it's eventual end.

    And regardless of the many criticisms HxH gets, it continues to be serialized, sell well, and be praised by fans. You have to ask yourself why that is. Why is HxH allowed to continue when many other manga aren't? Why is Togashi allowed to bash WSJ and keep his job? At this point, hating on HxH is just that. Hate.

    I'd say without their captains the Whitebeards would be slightly stronger than the Red-Hairs and with their captains they'd be significantly stronger.

    It's pretty obvious no Emperor was a real threat to Whitebeard. He just had too much power and influence.

    Raigou apparently can't even destroy an island, which Whitebeard can do easily.

    Obviously it was because of Whitebeard, but the crew even without the captain is still highly exceptional. If you take away the captains, the Whitebeard's would beat any Emperor crew decisively.

    It's a shame the Hunter manga is shit. Anime was really good. One of my favorites.

    As it's been said above; there's a reason Togashi is able to trash his employers and take year long breaks without getting his manga axed

    HxH does have quite the collection of haters

    As far as my personal feelings concerning the two, HxH is my favorite currently running Shonen while I dropped Toriko when it was still being serialized

    Because of the succes of Yu Yu Hakusho followed up by the promising start of HxH?

    RIP Chester, you'll always be loved and missed.
