please reblog if you’re in the Kingdom fandom
and I actually ship Shin with Sei (as well as the girls, because they’re badass).
This is a fandom blog and sometimes a meta blog. Beware!

I suppose everyone who read Hunter x Hunter noticed how the relationship between Gon and Killua evolved from a mere friendship to some obsessional love, especially from Killua’s side.
Enumerating the drawings where Killua’s admiration and passion towards Gon is strinkingly obvious, or how deeply Killua is hurt by Gon’s “This has nothing to do with you” sentence, would be an unreasonable task. One example may be enough :
(Obvisously, those who cannot imagine any gay relationship in a shônen will answer that this reaction is extremely common when your best friend rejected your help on one matter a bit bluntly.
And that may be very true. As everyone of you (to which a similar thing has already probably happened) will probably confirm.
You, too, cried, shivered, got on your knees and yelled your soul out when you supposed someone else could help your best friend instead, right ?)
Yet, when Gon is in bad shape and Killua manages to heal him after terrible hardships, they finally happen to reunite.
(Just before parting.)
Are we, there, the only ones who thought there is something (very) wrong with this reunion scene ? That is, Gon and Killua are acting towards each other the same way as they did during the first chapters of the manga.
As if you had never seen Killua’s feelings for Gon overflowing each chapter since the Chimera arc began.
On top of that, either we missed a chapter, or Togashi was as cruel as to skip the beginning of this reunion, where you could possibly have witnessed some cute feelings between the two of them.
(At one point of this scene, Killua says : “you already apologized to me”.
When and where, exactly ?
And with what kind of face ?)
Which means, we’re concluding a long arc where Killua went crazy about Gon - stalking him during his “date” with Palm (only for Gon’s sake and nothing else, obviously), stating the possibility of a double suicide with him as true lovers may do - with a brief, simple, and round sentence.
“See you later !”
Would that count as a (giant) step backwards ?
Or as sheer cruelty towards us, readers who are not creeped out by the possibility of homosexual feelings ?
Disagree. It seems you focused too much on Killua that you fail to notice what the other characters, who know him better than you (ie, Gon and Alluka), were saying.
The awkwardness in the reunion and parting? It’s because Alluka was there (Gon) and Killua’s decision not to involve Gon with his family problems (Killua). Even Alluka knows she’s the reason why the two have to part ways. "I’m going to hug my brother for a while but after that, I’ll let him go."
The one who decided to part ways was Killua not Gon. In fact, Gon doesn’t want to but he respected Killua’s decision nonetheless (because Gon knows he doesn’t have the right to do that with how much shit he put Killua through).
"…I can’t. If you’re here any longer…" - Gon
"…yeah." - Killua
Think about the significance of these two panels.
