So far a lot of comments I've seen about this newer series are most either love or or hate it, so although it's still pretty new what do you guys think of it so far?

Personally I really enjoy it and like that's following the manga a lot better, and that the animation looks like it came out of this age where the older one felt like it was older than it was. The only thing I don't care for right now is how they've been handling the violence, but that seems to be as typical as with the other shonen titles. And mostly I'm excited that we'll finally get a HxH series that covers all of the manga instead of splitting into four parts, three of which we'll never see stateside.

Edit: Sorry didn't see this thread was already in the main boards I figured it would be on the show's board this can be locked or deleted

I really love this show. I read the manga previously and I enjoyed the story and the characters. I can't really say my opinion on the first anime because I didn't watch it but after viewing some clips on Youtube from the first series I can say that I prefer this latest series. The animation in the older anime is not that great and the story moves at a slower pace. However, I think the storytelling in the first anime was great. This latest version of HxH has beautiful animation, great storytelling, nice voice work and the plot is moving at a faster pace so we viewers can get to the nitty gritty. I know fans of the older version said that the faster pace of the 2011 series leaves out some of the details about the characters' history but personally I feel that the show will have plenty of time to explore those topics. Right now I just want to see Leorio, Gon, Kurapica, and Killua get through the Hunter exam because it's after that part when the fun really begins.

I love it! The pace is much faster than the original anime series, which is something I like because the series really dragged on back then.

I can't say to much as I couldn't get into the original that much, but this one is more fast paste, and had to give it another shot with reading that this newer version follows the manga more then the original. Few episodes in and so for so good, can't say its great but its keeping my interest a lot more then the original.

I hope it's true that the hiatus for the manga is ending soon...I've been into this series for 12 years..... The official & unofficial manga translations, plus this new series, have boosted Hunter x Hunter to the kind of popularity I always felt it deserved.

I don't see it as a remake. I see it as Highlights with better animation.

For me, the thing to do it to read the manga arc, then watch the original anime, & then watch the "remake" to recap on evens with a slightly different perspective.

Of course, the original never got as far as the Chimaera Ant Arc, so even the haters are going to have to put aside their differences from that point on.

I hope you guys have all seen the Hunter x Hunter live action musicals posted on Youtube, staring the voice cast of the original series; they're very good!
