Okay, so recently I started Hitman Reborn because my friend told me it was a good series. I'm on episode 7 and it's been kind of boring and I was just wondering if it gets better? If so what episode? Thank you

One of my favourite anime hands down. The beginning sucks but it does get better. Episode 1-19 are more for comedic purposes but introduces the main characters.

It gets interesting from episode 20 onwards. There are some gag episodes in the middle but when the story gets serious, it's awesome. I am at ep:100 and it's so intense.

It's okay. I would definitely recommend pretty much any major shonen anime airing right now over it though. Basically, it's nothing special. Go watch Hunter x Hunter, Naruto, hell even Fairy Tail.

Yeah it's decently funny so far, I like Lambo as a funny character, he's my favorite so far

Let me just say that Reborn was the first anime series I've ever watched. I actually understand your perspective. My friends told me to watch like the first 10 ep of it and I thought it really sucked.

The show can be a bit boring and some of the episodes can actually be skipped (which I did). If you take a look at the longer arcs like Mukuro's arc, Varia arc, and the future arc, those are where the exciting parts are (at least for me).

I'd recommend you staying around until the end. It wasn't that bad. You actually might like it. I know I did.

If I remember correctly the first 20 or so episodes are just introduction so they can get kinda boring. It gets good around season 2. I liked the series overall though.

Way to random, I dropped it after 17 episodes. And besides, even if the anime "get's better" it's not worth a watch. You're better of reading the manga if you really want to give that series a try.

the anime is good, but at episode 20 is when things go down. I prefer the manga tho, im still upset over how the anime took out the suicide attempt scene, it pissed me off.

The beginning arc is really slow, but overall it's a decent show

I know where you are coming from. Had the same issue. Started watching Reborn, was going to give up on it when I accidentally played the most recent simulcast episode of it, smak in the middle of the future arc. Gave me a real good dose of where the show was going. If I hadn't recognized some of the characters I would have assumed I was watching a whole different show.


you have probably seen enough to get the gist of the set up and meet most of the important characters

skip to episode 20.

go back to the early ones if you feel you need to fill in some gaps or just want a silly fun laugh.

It gets good once you get past the first 20 episodes.

at first its a comedy, but then it exponentially grows to a great shonen anime, the manga is quite good as well, its just the last last chapter whats shit/average
