    Real talk now: how do you think 'Hunter X Hunter' should be pronounced?
    I've heard several people pronouncing the 'X', while others criticise that, saying that it shouldn't be pronounced at all.

    P.S. This time I made sure the thread didn't already exist. ^^'

    Same as jacky here^^ I'd find it weird to pronounce it like "hunter hunter" I mean, there's an X there for a reason, no?

    That's what I was thinking! But then some people argued that in every episode title, the 'x' is used as a space between words, also without being pronounced. Another argument was that Gon is hunting his father, so he'd be a hunter who hunts another hunter; a hunter hunter.

    I personally say "Hunter Ex Hunter", though!

    i always pronounced it "hunter hunter" or "H n H ",
    I am not sure but I probably heard someone say it like that before I started watching so hunter hunter was more natural for me

    Well i say "Hunter x hunter" but i guess the correct way to say it is "Hunter hunter" which is kinda weird.

    Hunter ex hunter, twice, but normally just Hunter x for short to make time, and I say it fast so it sounds like Hun Turks.

    I mean really, it should be Hantah Toyobu.
