This version of the anime is being touted as the definitive version and will be both filler free and strongly faithful to its manga source as it has no worries of catching up to the manga any time soon.


Not sure if source is reliable but this is great! I'm starting to think a reboot isn't so bad.

Its good news to me. I don't need to watch 90+ episodes to catch up now. And really, its the only viable way to do it.. its a 10-12 year old anime aimed at teens. The majority of the people who would be interested in an anime like it won't know the story, so just starting right in the middle isn't really a good move since you'd lose a lot of the potential viewers. Starting from the beginning would be draw them in, however. Especially since with the manga finally coming back after a long hiatus, this anime series can be used to get new people into the manga.

Plus, different studio/tv channel, so there wouldn't be any sense in starting at a spot where another studio ended in the first place. Kanon/Kanon 2006 deal.

Another one of the most important things... this gives the manga time to get a lot of new material. In the two years it'll take to catch up, it'll have way more material to animate than it would have if it started after Greed Island right now, and it might even have enough to have the manga finished. And theres no question they are going past Greed Island since they are introducing it to a new generation and they will want to animate what is available.

Someone translate

Apparently, the director wants to make some changes from the original, like Hisoka's personality will be somewhat different and Kaito wouldn't appear early in the story.

Edit

- Kaito won't appear early
- Hisoka will no longer be perverted, but will just be a "brave man"
- less violence
- Togashi will supervise the series

The first series already followed the manga pretty closely and it would be extremely lame to have the same thing over again with only just better technology. It's disappointing how everyone wants this to be just the same as the original or they will hate it. This has new v/a's and staff and to expect this to be an exact replica of the old series is just crazy and you should have lost hope from the beginning.

Edit: Also, pretty cool that Togashi is supervising

they took the pervert personality out and half of the hisoka is gone.

mmmm I ve never seen the original so it does not matter to me .I like watching anime in HD format. I love the voice actors that I have heard in the past 10 years. A director should not just copy other directors work , thats just insulting.Where is the creatvity in that.

and they are catering to the new market out there.

I haven't seen the original or read the manga, so it's pretty interesting to watch. As of episode 4 I will definitely be watching it every week. ^^ I'm curious to see how long I can go before getting impatient and reading the manga.

I suggest you read the manga along side this. There are going to be some things (gorey things) that won't show up in the anime most likely. There is one part during the exam where something crazy happens and it might be taken out. Just saying you don't have to though...

I'll definitely read the manga, I just don't know when. I know that if I read the manga I'll just keep going past the episodes, and if I know everything that will happen I'll probably get bored of the anime. If I watch the anime to where it ends then begin reading the manga, I should be able to get the best of both. xP

That's just my logic though, and I probably won't follow through because if there's even one big cliff-hanger I might not be able to wait lol.
