Only 2 tankoban are written a year for it, starting in '95, it is now on volume 45, One Piece starting 2 years later is on 66.
That's just like HxH,HxH started in 1998,same year as One Piece,but it's still in chapter 340.
The situation when he returns is something like this:
Return>do 10-40 chapters>leave and do tankoban/disappear for a year or two>return.
But I must say,Togashi's one helluva writer,I've never,ever been addicted to a manga like Hunter x Hunter,it's just too good to be missed,story telling,events,villains,good guys,all of them are good and have a philosophy behind them,the fact that his manga is still selling real good despite the hiatuses shows how great he is,if you're used to hiatuses,read HxH,it's just like Berserk,good(not sure how good,but it seems pretty good and a lot of philosophy is written within it),but hiatuses are the obstacle :3

10-15 episodes at most. I just didn't care for the main protagonist.
You could've pushed it a little bit like me,I downloaded more than 400 episodes and watched them in a row (had a 1 year vacation,no school,no university,nothing )
But you should push until the arlong arc (it's 1 mini arc after the Usopp arc)

I would just skip to the Alabasta Saga. I wouldn't call Luffy a second coming of Goku but he has a pure heart and an unwavering sense of adventure. It isn't about the ultimate prize, One Piece, it's about being a big damn pirate for him. If anything I enjoy him because he lacks the angst factor that other main characters go through even when the situation calls for it.



Anyway, Black Jack is apparently getting a live action American adaptation. Licensed to the guys that made Walking Dead. It's a mixed bag for me. On one hand with House over this would be a good chance to have a new badass doctor show. On the other hand the source material, admittedly, seems too outrageous for American audiences to view the series as a medical drama so there is bound to be changes to the storyline.

Not so long ago as a part of A TINKERBELL RECOMMENDATION!!! I recommended Koihime Musō as a show that should be watched because it has so many strong female characters (mainly because 98% of the huge cast is female) well it's time for a show that I view as one that can be viewed in much the same way as most of the large cast is female as well, it results in strong female characters, yuri-ism, giant boobs and very little clothing, ladies and gentlemen, you have entered one of the most prestigious tournaments in Gainos, this is Queen's Blade



Alright guys I know that a lot of people hate this show, I dunno why, maybe the lack of story, maybe the amount of fanservice, or other reasons I don't know, but people tend to not like this show from what I gather, I for one love it mostly because as said there is a most female cast which means I don't have to suffer trough male character being a perv or being retarded and abused by the female cats, but anyways.
Queen's Blade has three shows, the first show Queen's Blade: The Exiled Virgin released in 2009 the sequel Queen's Blade 2: The Evil Eye and the latest show Queen's Blade: Rebellion which finished airing May this year.

Queen's Blade: The Exiled Virgin Plot
Quote:
In a land where a queen is chosen every few years solely by winning a tournament, there can be no short supply of formidable opponents. For one woman warrior however, an early defeat clearly shows her that she is lacking in experience though she may be bountiful in body.

Fortunately, while defeat could spell one's doom, her life is saved by a powerful stranger. But unfortunately for this savior, less-than-pure motives and shrewd family members mean her reward is a prison cell. Her release is prompt when the unseasoned warrior she saved, tired of her current lifestyle of nobility, sets off to prove herself.
Queen's Blade 2: The Evil Eye Plot
Quote:
In the city of Gainos, Reina the vagrant warrior enters the competition of Queen's Blade to decide the new queen of the continent, but there are a number of obstacles in her way, each with their own reason for fighting.
Queen's Blade: Rebellion Plot
Quote:
Annelotte a wandering knight quickly become involved in an insurrection against the increasingly corrupt nobility and fanatical Church as she and her growing band of fellow warriors fight to bring about justice and set right what has gone wrong.
So the main theme for this show is action, a tournament between female warriors all set to become the next queen of the country, pretty much everyone have a different objective, some wants to save the country from declining, others just wants the power that comes with being queen so there is bound to be some conflict between the different contenders. Now there are some rules for the whole event "The contestants need only be older than 12 years. They need not be human, intelligent or even of that country. The rules for the tournament are simple: murder is allowed. Any weapon can be chosen. The winner is decided when one of the participants flees or can't move anymore."
The art is great, background is well made, action scenes are awesome character designs are pretty much flawless with the many different characters we get to know through out the story. Voice acting and the sound in general is top notch with every voice actor doing their job well and the music going from calm to action middle age style. The Story is pretty simple once you get to know all about the tournament because that is pretty much what it mostly revolve around the tournament to become queen but due to the large amount of characters it ends up jumping around a little and it gets hard to follow up on the different people.
Much fanservice I will warn you about, the characters are not dressed in much and what counts for amor probably wouldn't help out much if it came to a real life fight :P and of course since most of the characters are female instead of your romance plot we mostly get yuri stuff to deal with, but that is just a thing you will have to accept with an anime like Queen's Blade, tits and fighting. Not that that's a bad thing



So there you have it, I'm your nostlgi-wait no.....just thank you for your time guys hope you can't use this, got you interested and you'll enjoy what you see.

Before I forget, we are about halfway into this season of anime, I wanna know what you people are watching!

I'm a big Dragonball fan, but has anybody ever heard of a special called "Yo! Son Goku and his friends return"? This is the first time I ever heard or seen it, and apparently it's been out for 4 yrs lol. It's kinda funny

I heard there's a new animated DBZ movie.

@Tinkerbell: I've seen season one and the six OVAs.

The video you posted shows why Luffy's the biggest ass kicking machine,too manly
But despite all that,Luffy's comedy is just priceless

Toonami Update:

Tonight's episode of Deadman Wonderland is the last episode. So it will be replaced by two anime, Samurai 7 and Eureka 7. I'm kinda on meh on both. Both anime are ok, but not only have I seen Eureka, but I seen a good chunk of Samurai. Both have good episode, but eh, not excited.

... There's another problem.

The anime times are 12:30 and 1:30. Deadman's replacement is obvious... But the 1:30 is FullMetal... The hell Cartoon Network?! You better be pushing FMA back a half hour and taking out Ghost in The Shell!

Just want to say something.

Does anyone agree with me that the last 3 episodes of Dragon Ball Z were quite awful?

Dragon ball Gt is shit compared to DBZ imo.

It was fucking weird. That's for sure. The best ending will always be Gohan defeating Cell and Goku deciding to stay in the Other World.
