I really enjoyed that first episode! I wonder what Madhouse is doing changing the Kaito flashback scene but overall excellent job!

The manga fans generally hated the Chimera Ant Arc, for it's horrible art (Togashi was ill) & for basically being a great big homage to Dragonball Z, so this is one chapter they should enjoy seeing shortened.

But the "13th Hunter Chairman Election arc" that came right after was some of Togashi's best & most heart-wrenching storytelling, & his art thankfully started improving with his health.

Incoming thread necromancy, but would rather post here than make an identical topic.

I absolutely hated this arc. It was waaay too drawn-out, and the plot did indeed seem too identical, with the main arc antagonist feeling too similar to Cell from DBZ.

I mean seriously, I recently went on a binge of watching episodes of this series after finally getting around to checking it out when it hit Netflix, but damn...There was an A+ track record until Chimera Ant arc, and blam, dragged the series into the mud.

I felt it was so bad, I had to really push myself to even finish. The plot just sucked and carried on, was slow-played to all hell, and the way the antagonist died, just felt too cheap and unrewarding after having sat through all that.

Luckily the current arc has been fantastic thus far. I have high hopes as the series pushes forward, hopefully lessons were learned from the past mistakes.

Shounen Jump series love to pay way too much homage to eachother. Take Toriko for example; the whole thing feels like a Hunter x Hunter fanfic starring OCs based on the Gourmet Hunters from the first Arc, the way the series used to introduce bizarre monsters (which it thankfully stopped doing by arc 2), & Sunny reminds me somewhat of Hisoka & kinda dresses like him. The anime for it did a crossover with both Dragonball & One Piece, which makes no sense. I have a thing for so-bad-it's-funny, so I'm going to soldier through it.

Noticed your G Gundam avatar; that's the only Gundam series I will watch.

Hell yeah, G Gundam is great. One of the best, in my opinion.
