I remeber trying to watch it in 2011 cause I knew of the name and thought it was a succesfull show but gon turned me off fast, I couldnt stand his character design a 12 year old with green short shorts.... That being said I went back the other night bored as fuck and said why not try a episode maybe it got beter.. Loaded up the episode where Hisoka bitch slaps gonn and thought the artwork on hisoka all evil and twisted looked bad ass... Gritted my teeth alil in the begining, and ended up marathoning 61 eps in 3 nights... Goes up with some of my best marathons! Ended up really liking gonns character despite my inital turn offs. I like how he isn't a naruto or a natsu or a ichigo, he's hes own bag. Really glad I didn't watch the old show cause now I look foward to hunterx eps like I do with fairy tail and the new naru eps coming up outta filler...


You guys thinking 200+ plus episodes on the 2011 rerun or what? I dont wanna dig too deep into things and spoil it.

^^ I was exactly the same, gave it a try once & was put off by the same reasons.

I skipped through a random Manga chapter recently tho to see what the fuss was about & quite enjoyed it (despite not really knowing what was happening) so marathoned thru all the 2011 remake eps.

The point when I REALLY got into it was when Kurapika revealed his power & started owning everyone.

Also love how strategic the fights are, really well though out.

Currently fighting the urge to read the Manga & see what happens - but considering the amount of hiatus it's always on it must be painful to wait months at a time for the next chapter, so I'll keep to the Anime.

Yea I tell myself I wont break down and read the mangas and ruin it like I do with Bleach/Nartou/Fairy Tail and now Magi :(

Gotta stay strong with Hunter x tho!
I like the pace of the arcs on this anime and this greed island arc looks like its gonna lead into some cool shit

The 2011 version is superior to the 1999 version overall

BUT I do miss 1999 Kurapika . The 2011 version of kurapika is just soooo kiddy looking . Kurapika is just badass on the old version Now im not even feeling anything when his eyes turns red

Haha, I didn't get turned off at the start, my friends did though they didn't like how Gon was a little kid and thought the anime was a little immature I guess. But I made them keep watching, and now they are just as into is as I am haha. This anime is so intense it's looking like to be one of my all time favorites I really hope they continue the series and follow the manga, which I haven't read yet.

Was thinking this the other night

Is it just me or is kurapika's voice actor the same person that does Soi fong in bleach??? I know its someone i've heard before and sounds more like a females voice but I cant put my fingure on it. Anyone ?

I really enjoy the anime and this is one show I have yet to look at the manga for. Which lately I have been doing because I cant wait for one episode each week. Wish I did not though because now I feel like I can miss episodes because I already know whats going on.

The manga has way more action but is always on hiatus
the anime is terrific and I loved the greed island ova it really opened you up to what exactly hunters were, I beleive there was plenty of nen action maybe not enough one on one fights but just enough to not turn it into a overly strict fight manga.

The best way to describe HxH is that it's a shonen series with its focus being more towards the characters than the fights.
And It also tends to get real gruesome!

I really like this new adaptation, it finally got to my favorite part. And I want it to continue. But I can't believe it will, or not without any censorship... After all, everything that happened until now is walk in a park compared to that what follows.



I haven't read through all 151 pages of this thread, nor do I intend to, so I apologize if it was already brought up.

It is, but they havent skipped any of the details out that I can remember so far. The way they handled that prisoner with killua in the exam arc was pretty graphic. And dont forget they are doing the movie/OVA about kurapika and his clan being wiped out, I cant imagine thats going to be flowers and happy times

yeah , I am really excited with this anime.

I have been following it closely since it came out in 2011 and I am glad they are following the manga very well and developing the characters further
