So recently, I noticed that Hunter x Hunter 2011 is 15th on the top tv shows on IMDB with over 5,000 votes, it's also the highest rated anime. Being a huge hxh fan this is awesome! I think hxh has an advantage over other tv shows because it only barely makes the 5,000 mark so it has a better chance of getting a higher rating. What do you think about this? Do you think Hunter x Hunter deserves it?

Most people use MAL or anime only websites. IDMB is too general for me.

And I see nothing wrong with it, except with Code Geass occupying the 9,10th, or 11th spot.

Hunter x Hunter is the best written shonen battle manga ever. You can quote me on that. Unless Full Metal Alchemist counts as a shonen battle manga, then they are both tied for first place.

What sets these two series apart from other shonen battle manga? A human protagonist.
Both Gon's and Edward's strengths are that they are smart. They aren't geniuses either, they are informed. They get stronger when they get more informed. Battles in both HxH and FMA are dynamic. You can hardly ever expect the main character to just go head on with the enemy and barely win like in most other mangas. Also, the main characters aren't special angels that can do everything by themselves, they are part of a web of characters. They are our window into the world, but at the same time they aren't the focus of the story.

What would you say is then?

Please don't say One Piece, Bleach, Naruto, or Dragon Ball Z. All of those series are extremely formulaic.

The biggest problem with the top 20 MAL rankings is the Gintama problem, and I say that with no specific beef against Gintama, but rather that a show with 50 versions of itself taking up so many spots kind of ruins it when you're looking for a random new show to watch that consensus says is good. Same with sequels and shows with a billion movies attached. It's annoying.

Also, I love One Piece to death, but HxH is probably the best long-form battle shonen out there. The Chimera Ant arc bogged it down hard though, and should have been trimmed by probably 5-8 episodes.

BECAUSE HUNTER X HUNTER IS AWESOME! ARGGGHHHHHH WHEN IS TOGASHI COMING BACK?!

The series has a lot of charm points that I could not find in other popular anime such as Naruto. The world and story are very tightly written. There are very little fillers. I especially enjoyed the power balance that is rarely seen in the genre. For example, every new antagonists in Dragon Ball series were described as the strongest. The protagonists over come this difficulty by finding new powers. Hunter X Hunter is not about Gon getting infinitely stronger. He does not always overcome his difficulties, either. The side characters are not created to make Gon look better but has their own stories and issues.

Is it the best? It's subjective. Full Metal Alchemist was also a very well written piece. In terms of anime, I think the music was better in FMA than HxH. But if someone has to be #1, I would least object with HxH.

HxH is awesome!!!

Hisoka and his schwings!!!

Yes, it deserves all the accolades, awards and high ratings.

It's a beautiful series that focus on real emotions and art, and not on some stupid fanservice or stupid jokes, or templated characters and cheesy dialogues.

the protagonists make bad choices, too. That's what I like about HxH, they're not this super perfect role model that can't make any mistakes...




Series like this makes me keep looking for more anime.

I love HxH as much as the next guy. But I take IMDB ratings with a grain of salt since about 90% of the people there are asshats.
