So I finally decided to watch HunterxHunter and it was the best decision of my life. The series is really awesome and I was instantly hooked. Currently on the fourth phase of the Hunter Exams



But to my surprise there were two anime's for the series. One in 1999 (By Nippon Animation)and this current one (made by MadHouse) apparently the new anime is suppose to follow the manga way closer like FullMetal Alchemist Brotherhood.My question to you is

Which do you prefer? How accurate is the new anime compared to the manga. What are your problems with either anime.

Your thoughts

I havent watched the whole 2011 version. I saw the 1999 version and all the OVAs and went straight to episode 76 on the 2011 version(the chimera arc). I do like the 2011 version best though. Better quality always wins.

I watched the original one including all the OVA's and I prefer the new one. I loved the first one and was sad to see it end so soon. I love the new one even more. I recommend you stick with the new one.

I have watched both and I think I like the new one better, one reason is because the first one did not continue the story where as the new one has now passed where the other one stopped...the animation on the new one is much better, but the story line is pretty much the same, with a little differences here and there...I am so glad to be getting into the new arc, I think it's gonna be great.... if you haven't seen it, it is a fantastic anime...

It is a great show really. One of my favorites. One Piece and Naruto have been boring lately. Hunter X Hunter and Attack on Titan are always great and keep me excited.

The animation on the original anime (1999) looked more mature almost at the same level as Yu Yu Hakusho. The kicker is the series ended to soon, and it could have been expanded a little bit further. The new series (2011) has a different color style, and some may think it look childish, but it is definitely not for a younger audience, which means it retains the darker themes of the original series, but with a charming and fresh look that can attract old and new audiences, not to mention the story and characters are developed a little bit more in this series.

I disagree.
The first version had way better music. The OP and ED songs were really good.
The new ones are forgettable and I just skip them tbh.
The 2011 version wins everything else though.
