Can we all just agree that York Shin is supposed to be New York? 2 reasons I think this: 1. The context seems to imply it's New York City - it's a large city on the water with grid-like streets and a seedy underground. 2. "Shin" written as 新 is Japanese for "new" (I don't know if that's how it is in the manga, but at least the romanization is the same).

Is there a trope for this?

  • Shalnark.
    • Cellphones are used more often in this series than in any other shonen you could name. Even the Chimera Ants tend to rely on them.
    • The whole Chimera Ant plot only progressed as far as it did because the Queen was fortunate enough to land in the one country in the world were cellphones were banned, preventing biohazard mobilization in time to easily nip them in the bud.

On the character sheet, the entry for Kurapika lists Post-Dramatic Stress Disorder as a Zero Context Example. The trope has been renamed Post-Victory Collapse, but without context, I can't tell if this is misuse or not, so I've moved the entry here. If it does fit, please feel free to (re-)add the new name, preferably with some context.
