Most relatable character
In many ways I’m a simple shallow creature. In an effort to avoid useless overcomplications I do have a habit of simplifying things just a bit too easily. I do this a lot when it comes to resonating with imaginary people. I strip them down to their core characteristics and if I can’t see myself in all of them I refuse to admit I relate to a character.
I may understand them, I may relate to a particular predicament they find themselves in but, as a whole, can I really ever truly relate? Of course I can! Sadly, I’m a fairly neutral person. My strengths are balanced out by my faults. I tend to be even keeled and middle of the road in most things rather than reach for extremes. It’s all about balance and it has served me well but it makes for a boring character.
I will never be able to truly grasp pure selfless heroism. I get scared a lot. And villainy seems really exhausting. I would not have survived as a hunter, I’m not even the kind of person who would have taken the exam to begin with. That limits the options a little.
I understand everyone’s motivations. I sympathize with a lot of them as well. However, truly relating to anyone. Maybe Mito, but I wish I was that cool. I can feel what it’s like to itch for adventure. To gather up your courage and sneer at social conventions only to have life throw you a curveball. I get the frustration of voluntarily tying yourself down, of clipping your own wings because you think it’s the right thing to do. Of suspecting you missed out but having no one to blame but yourself and feeling incredibly guilty for even considering another course of action. As if you idle wonderings and what ifs are a betrayal to the life and duty you choose for yourself.
I also get what it’s like to be both headstrong and a complete doormat at the same time. Independent but occasionally lonely. Besides, I would totally rock the auburn hair. With my “has been dead for 3 days” skin tone, it would look completely natural.
Otherwise it’s Pitou. Me and Pitou, we’re like twins separated at birth.

That was a fascinating analysis in how you related to Mito. It would be tough to pick just one character from HXH that I could relate to.
It’s an enourmous cast and they are all surprisingly well developped
Very true. I certainly noticed that in the manga and original series.
I swear your caption game is on point, AVERY.
Score!!!! I got a good nickname for once!
Or a pseudonym, a sobriquet or maybe an alias. But sure ‘nickname’ works too. 😀
You lift me up just to smack me right back down… well a cognomen it is
Aww my apologies, Avery. ♥️

I feel like it would be hard to choose a character in Hunter X Hunter that you can relate to! I feel that we can relate to everyone on some levels… I love that you said Pitou though! Such a good character!! (that might be the cat ears talking though.. Lol!)
