I don't think it's really rushed it's just not adding in a lot of the stuff the old anime did. In the manga, some of the things that happened in the old anime didn't happen or was slightly changed. That's why episode 2 of the new one was like episode 4 of the old one. Seems like they are doing this anime No-nonsense. Can't wait to see Killua!


I do know that they removed a lot of stuff. I watched the original series too, ya know.
But I'm glad they're doing it. A lot of irrelevant scenes aren't really necessary so it's fine.
The progress of the story is incredibly (exaggeration) fast that I'm loving it.


Oh in that case I think so too I do know that a lot of people are complaining about how fast it's going but this is the speed it should be going IMO not to say the old one was bad though.

I liked the new episode and Hisoka and Killua's voices weren't horrible thank god. I expected they wouldn't show the guy's arm getting cut off but I like the way they did it. At least they aren't going to censor the whole show.

Hated Hisoka and Killua's voices.
I also hated that they made Satotz look like a fool. He was much more sophisticated in the original.
And WTF @ the way he runs. No no no. I hate that they changed so many things!

*sigh* But I didn't read the manga so I wouldn't know exactly if they're doing a good job or not.

I like Hisoka's new voice better. I thought Killua's VA wouldn't be suitable for him ( I heard her in Fairy Tail as Levy) but IMO she did a good job. I'm also glad that they left the guy's arm getting cut off by Hisoka.

They are doing a great job. They are making it more similar to the manga than the original did (ex. Hisoka cutting the arms of that guy) and Satotz runs that way in the manga. The original series changed that. From what I've seen in the first 3 episodes I'm starting to like the new series more than the original with the main reason is that the new one is more similar to the manga.
The only complaint I have is the background music. They have to change them. They are not suitable to the series whatsoever.

I haven't seen the original anime and haven't yet read the manga, so with no bias and nothing to compare it to: I'm loving this anime so far. I've noticed a lot of people commenting on the fast pace and how they've cut a lot from the original anime, and if that's the case, I have to admit that I'm glad they did it. I like that they're going at a fast pace right now - while it was interesting to see how they got to the examination site, I wouldn't have wanted it to drag out because then I'd just be impatient to get to the actual exam (not to mention all that's sure to come after!). Now that the exam has started, I hope they slow down a bit to give us some tension and suspense. But yeah, so far, I think the pacing is perfect.

My one complaint about the newest episode is that so many new characters were mentioned. I really hope that if any of those characters become significant, they do a good job of reminding us who they are because I've already forgotten everyone except Gon, Kurapika, Leorio, and Killua (and I only remember Killua because I know he's going to become a main character later, otherwise I probably would have forgotten him too). But if all those other characters remain insignificant filler characters that are just there to provide the main four with opponents, then whatever, I guess I don't mind it so much.

So excited to see where this series goes!

I've watched the old version and I really loved it ... I was sad that it finished already, but I hope this new one will go further. :)
The new version has a better graphic and the action/story seems to develop faster, but I don't like the voices of the characters ... I used to watch it English dubbed and I loved the voices of Hisoka and Killua, but this one I don't like so much.

Hunter X Hunter !!!! GOD !!! you can't imagine how much i love this anime ....it's my favourite anime of all time...
i was and am still obsessed with it...i watched the whole original anime, read the manga, and i've seen the 3 available episodes of the remake.....
anyway, about the remake...
things i like:
1) it's fast.......which i really like.....
2) it follows the manga better than the original anime (when Tompa gave gon, leorio and kurapica the poisoned juice......and when killua came asking for more juice and it didn't affect him because he's immuned to poison....that scene was in the manga but it wasn't included in the original anime...)
3) the Animation is better than the old one...
4)Gon, Leorio and kurapica's voices....it matches well with the characters

things i don't like:
1)Killua's voice: in the first adaption he never felt like a child to me back then. More like a short adult who takes nothing seriously or everything dead serious, always in those extrems. Now he looks and sounds like a child but his "Poison's don't affect me." sentence where he was all smug and smart@ss totally hit the spot for me. Like you think *aww, what a cute and friendly little child." and the next second *OMG! He bloody ripped his heart out!*. He seems more playful and innocent but we all know what he´s really capable of. XD
2) Killua's eyes......emmm how to say this?....in the original, his eyes were kinda black (sometimes dark blue), which made him look really cool and mysterious....but in the remake they're light blue...which made him look cute.....but oh well since he's my favourite character of all time , i have to love everything about him....
3) the scene where hisoka transforms the guy's hands into flowers.........
he was supposed to cut the guy's hands...with blood everywhere.....
4)Hanzo (the bald ninja guy).......his eyebrows look weird...

Well atleast they tried their best to make it similar to the manga without changing the scene like the original did.

The new hunter x hunter is very fast paced so they can continue the anime faster. Some of the scenes were changed but overall it has the thrill and excitement that the old has.

Episode 4.

I should just get used to the changes already. lol
I'm feeling this is not gonna be the same HxH I used to watch back then.

Anyway, this was a good episode.
I thought Killua's voice was okay, but I'm still not loving Hisoka's voice. :l
More changes, very minor though.
And the second part of the marathon next episode! Let's see Hisoka run wild. >:D
