When i was reading hxh as a 13 y/o i just automatically assumed that kurapika was a girl for a solid five volumes, like, no doubt in my mind, and then one day i noticed that he was referred to as “he” and it was such an incredible plot twist that wasnt even supposed to be a plot twist
I just thought about it but… YES ANOTHER COMMON POINT WITH CLOUD
KIMIE HOLY FUCK
I THINK YOU’RE INTO SOMETHING
This wouldn’t be the first time there are common things with Cloud like??: –Smol Villages Boys -Mass Murder of his Loved Ones -Ressentment over the people who did it and seeking for revenge -Eyes changing colors when confronted to an enemy -Crossdressed once to get closer to enemies
AND NOW THE DOLPHIN. Cloud rode a Dolphin up a tower, and Kurapika has it as one of his Chain now
And like maybe we wouldn’t mention it if, yknow Meteor City wasn’t an actual name in the saga (Meteor City for the origin of his enemies I mean C o m o n )
And of course this:
which has for cover, sure, not the same ff, but:
No but joke aside i wouldn’t even be surprised Togashi, being the video game dork he is, and who already made reference to FFVII, would have done this on purpose.
This is it. Good luck stopping me from believing Dolphin-chan was inspirated by Junon’s Dolphin, Cloud’s best friend.
