Madhouse To Remake Hunter x Hunter Anime with New Staff and Cast

According to Mainichi, the new Hunter x Hunter anime will start on October 2nd. Madhouse Studios will remake it from the beginning of the story. The production staff and the voice cast are renewed. Nihon TV prepared a new programming block for the new anime at 10:55 am on Sundays. The previous TV series was aired on Fuji TV in 1999. The change of the broadcasting TV channel is quite unusual.

Staff
Director: Kohjina Hiroshi
Series Composition: Maekawa Atsushi ("Prince of Tennis", "Bakugan" series)
Character Design: Yoshimatsu Takahiro
Program Producer: Nakatani Toshio ("Death Note", "Nana", "Kaiji")

The new cast will be announced later.

Well in FMA's case, the first one did not follow the manga. They had to remake it. HxH followed the manga faithfully (with a few fillers) and it was good as is. A remake is not a necessity.

Yeah, not happy about it. Hunter x Hunter was a great anime and it doesn't need to be remade. The rest of the damn story needs to be animated. If it does both then fine, I guess, but I don't see that happening.

The show was 62 episodes plus another 30 for OVAs. Have my doubts that there are going to invest in that many episodes, let alone more.

Well, I don't know. I haven't read the manga so I don't know if a lot of stuff was changed in the original series. If it wasn't there really is no reason at all for a total remake. Don't know how many chapters there are but a quick looks is showing 310. There's a much better chance of covering stuff if the continue instead of restarting. But who knows. If stuff like Bleach and Naruto can go on forever and ever then maybe Hunter x Hunter will pick up enough momentum to carry it a long way.

I don't get why (except for wishful thinking) when the new anime was announced that anyone thought it was going to be anything but a remake. After all, we are talking about a series that ending 10 years ago this past Spring.

What other series can you name that continued after that period of time (as a series, not a OVA or movie), and more importantly, was that continuation successful?

Don't be hasty! We still haven't seen the trailer/preview yet, and like other remakes, it might be better than the first one... Story-wise at least....

Umm.. success? It didn't really matter to be honest. I just think a remake isn't really necessary 'cause the original is already good the way it is. But yeah the producers would want to make money out of this so they're going to remake it. T_T

As i said in my thread regarding this. As long as it stays true to the manga source material it wont be bad.

Check out this news article. I think the author sums it up perfectly:
