It's possible that a lot of male fans really embraced that part of her character

It's also possible to lick your elbow.

I was never sure if Biscuit was a gigantic manly girl or a gigantic man who wishes he was the little girl.

This kind of makes me realize how few significant and memorable female characters that HxH has. Yikes.

Let's not start an argument with the trans community.

With a few relatively minor characters making the list, I'm disappointed that Ponzu didn't.

If we're counting Alluka then we should also count Pitou.

That said, disappointed for no Ponzu, Piyon, or Palm.

So many female characters in HxH which start with a P.

It's true that there are few women in Hunter x Hunter, but these guys went and voted for the weirdest ones. Killua's grandmother barely appears in the HxH anime and it's just a tiny-ass silhouette.. And sure as hell didn't take much interest in the staff of the Heaven's Arena, compared to Koto and Juri, the announcers of the Dark Tournament in YuYu Hakusho, they're pretty dull.

If I were to vote... Komugi, Biscuit, Alluka, Cheadle, Machi, Shizuku, Palm, Melody, Neon Nostrade, and Reina. In that order. I prefer that the few women that appear in Hunter x Hunter are incredibly amazing even when they are minor characters, though I would say that Togashi started changing the balance around Chimera Ant arc.

Some seriously weird/troll-ish choices there. I mean, Receptionist, Woman B, Killua's grandma, what the hell, lol.

Hmm, I started thinking about this, and I actually like majority of the females in HxH. The one that stick the most in order: Senritsu, Canary, Pakunoda, Mito, Palm (esp. post-transformation), Machi, Komugi. Pretty sure I'm forgetting some other...
