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

The first thing i look at when im going to find a new anime is the cover art, then the sypnosis. If i hadn't known about HxH before i probably wouldn't have wanted to watch a fishing anime(thats what it looks like now).

I dunno. I feel like changing the description/cover art would be even more misleading, because then people are going to expect epic fights and such right off the bat. HxH starts out pretty innocent and evolves over time. Most people would probably get a second opinion before they started watching anything with 100+ episodes, anyways.

There's also major potential for spoilerage, so tread carefully.

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.


Same here ahahaha! I only forced myself to watch it after tens of recommendations from anime watching friends. Now it's the highlight of Tuesday Movie Night with the fam

It did start out very innocently, didn't it? Maybe we can find a happy median (not too epic and not too corny )?

To be honest, I really liked the first arc. I liked the innocence. The nicey-nice cover art is what drew me to the series to begin with. I'm certainly not disappointed with what I ended up watching, but I feel like people will only really get into HxH if they can appreciate the totality of the show, not just the boss Chimera Ant fights. But that's just me, your mileage may vary.

I think it matches Togashi's style. Really innocent looking characters that are capable of really terrible things. Like Madoka, before Madoka.

The cover is fine but it would be cool if Hisoka was on it.

If they change the cover art to include more recent developments, wouldn't that be spoiling it for the new viewers? Kinda like the episode descriptions are doing on the front page right now (that should probably be changed btw).
