Long running shows (like HxH) that should get some new cover art?

So yeah, I know this doesn't matter much at all, but I think Hunter X Hunter should get some new cover art. It's just amusing when I click that picture and get the show the way it is now. That art just looks so happy there. And shit, Leorio and Kurapika haven't really been in the show for how long?

I don't know if any shows have gotten new cover art before on CR, but for long running shows it would be cool to switch it up every once in a while. Hunter X Hunter is the only long running show I watch so it's the one that jumps out at me. Any other long shows that could use some new art?

agreed!!!

the current cover art is too misleading.


let's make this topic in the Premium Only section

I'll be honest, it took me a long time to even start HxH partially because of the cover art

Yeah between the cover art and "Gon, a young boy who lives on Whale Island, dreams of becoming a Hunter like his father, who left when Gon was still young." I didn't even bother to check out the show for a good year or so. Word of mouth is what finally convinced me to give it a try.

I just thought it would be extremely silly and lame.

Isn't it the broadcaster/owner of the shows right the ones that changes and edits the cover art. So I guess CR needs NTV to do it.

Dude, the original pretty cure series is running an image featuring yes precure 5!

I think that is the greater injustice here.

I have no idea.

but that place is made specifically for suggestions from Premium Members... so I'm assuming it holds more value over there? than on normal topics.

The cover art definitely doesn't represent what the show is about very well.

If your intention is just discussion among users, and share opinions, including other old covers that no longer fit the tone of a current show then it's fine here.

If your intention was to make a suggestion that you want CR staff to see and act on if feasible, then it belongs in the Suggestion / Feedback forum -- I can move it there if you want; just let me know.

If it is more for fun conversation, I think the title should be changed to encourage talk about more than just the HxH image. I can also change that (and will do so if it doesn't get moved to Suggestions).

Personally, I like the comfort of seeing the same old image. For me it brings a sense of nostalgia and I like the feeling it brings when I think where the story started and where it is now. Also, for people who haven't yet started the show or who are still partway through it, images that reflect the latest arc may be a bit of a spoiler.

I really miss Kurapika and Leorio. But let's be real here, if people really were curious about watching Hunter x Hunter, they should read reviews. Or ask anyone they know who watches anime. Usually they say Hunter x Hunter is so good, even if they haven't watched the remake and just saw the old one. Even though the remake is super good looking

As long as it's not spoilery for the new viewers. Naruto and Bleach's covers represent their current arcs but aren't spoilery but One Piece, for example, has a cover featuring the post-timeskip cast. New viewers already know what the crew will look like 500 episodes prior to getting there...

How about using your avatar as 'cover art' lol.

I wasn't mislead by the cover art, but by the description. I thought there would be different arcs where a bunch of kids would hunt monsters and stuff. Now I anticipate every Tuesday
