So I've seen 6 episodes of this and so far they've
cut out Gon's backstory with Kite
removed an entire stage of the Hunter Exam
censored every instance of blood and violence
rushed through the story
hired a shitty music composer and director
made the colors and character designs look fucking terrible
Why do people say this is better than the 1999 version and manga again? Have they just not seen or read it?

Why do people say this is better than the 1999 version and manga again?
Go into a HxH thread and you'll find people constantly saying the opposite.

Otherwise it's because 2011 is new and slick looking, people think 99 looks out dated and the manga is scribbles. They are wrong, obviously.

That's only in the magazine, they've been known to literally publish just the drawings from the name and not the final copy because it's better than nothing. Togashi actually pushes out completed drawings for the collected volumes and they're fucking beautiful.

It's objectively wrong and anyone who's read the tanks knows this. Togashi published scribbles for a certain period of time when his hand was injured, but they were redrawn for the tanks. It was 7 sequential volumes worth out of 33 total, only one chapter wasn't fixed.

The rest ranges from average to great (by weekly standards) and is given a boost in quality by Togashi's paneling and composition.

No it's not, it's like 3 seconds and they actually even changed the story and downplayed Kite and Gon's relationship.
It was boring shit
Subjective and irrelevant, it's still cut content. Don't use pacing as an excuse because they also added random filler on the boat about the sailor.
To keep out the edgy Naruto crowd
Are you actually defending censorship? Did you think the sparkles blood was good too?
The music compositions are god tier
They're average with some great ones in Yorkshin and CA. Sadly they didn't know how to use them most of the time so they ruined it.
the director respected the material
Clearly not, it's one of the blandest Madhouse adaptation and they've made a lot of shitty ones.
Get your eyes checked
It's true, they all look lanky and like their hair is made out of plastic. They also made the faces longer and the chins pointier and it looks fucking awful.

I really can't understand that delusion.

Adrian Fisher

There's nothing shit about that art. It's light on detail, that's it, and it's clearly for the sake of atmosphere and emphasis.

You can really tell that people who bitch about Togashi's art don't read much manga. They've probably read Berserk and Vagabond and expect everything to be on that level, and that detail is the best gauge of art quality.

I recently have watched a lot of HxH threads in Sup Forums, even more than dbz, OP and loly threads. Is this anime so popular? I've never watched before..

Aaron Morgan
Aaron Morgan

Madhouse's 2011 adaptation has been met with near universal critical acclaim. While the series as a whole has received widespread praise,[133][134] the Chimera Ant arc in particular has been often singled out. In addition to being met with rave reviews, the arc has generated considerable discussion and analysis of its themes, symbols, characters and structure throughout and in the aftermath of its run. The arc is commonly viewed as a deconstruction of shōnen and action anime;[135][136] other readings have focused on supposed symbolic parallels with Buddhism[137][138] and nuclear war. Nick Creamer compared the arc to a “war drama”. In a lengthy essay, Creamer read the arc as a study of, and in the end a simultaneous critique and defense of human nature.[139]

Much of the writing surrounding the arc focuses on its villain, the Chimera Ant King. Largely echoing Creamer’s conclusion, Luke Halliday, in an examination of the character, describes his story as “an exploration into what it means to be human.”[140] In the piece, Halliday describes the King's development as “one of the most interesting and captivating in anime . . . [the King's] journey is simply unforgettable” and states his own belief that the arc “will go down as one of the greatest stories told in anime”.

Nick Creamer held similar sentiments, writing “the show’s fantastic aesthetics elevate it above almost everything out there – in direction, in sound design, in pacing, in animation, in basically every relevant aesthetic metric, Hunter x Hunter triumphs. That it’s been maintaining this level of quality for well over a hundred episodes is nothing short of astonishing.”[141]

Fucking hell, stop valuing polish over effect. It's not smooth and shiny looking because it's meant to create an impression instead. Eg, the page with Welfin is supposed to convey his stress and paranoia, therefore it has rough lines and excessive text to show his frantic mental process. His face is divided into multiple panels and there's no background to keep focus on the fact that we're hearing what's going on in his head, and it feels tense and claustrophic as a result.

I feel stupid just typing such a babby level analysis but if you don't understand what I'm saying you're beyond help. The page with the king is even more obvious with the effect it's going for.

Jacob Bailey

The 1999 anime had poor direction with the story. The filler was horrible and you'll probably be bored as fuck watching the first 10 episodes.

Even though I often argue that 1999 is better, I will admit that Greed Island and the second half of the Chimera Ant arc were really good in the 2011 version. Also various scenes such as Hisoka vs Gon were done really well too.

Brandon Gonzalez
Brandon Gonzalez

They rushed through Greed Island and they did the opposite with the second half of CA where they used the narration to make every scene drag on as much as possible without much animation. Those are probably the parts the butchered the most with Yorkshin.
Gon vs Hisoka was pretty good though.

William Stewart
William Stewart

they used the narration to make every scene drag on as much as possible without much animation
Isn't that basically true to the manga?

Colton Taylor
Colton Taylor

No, because the manga isn't anime and the narration flowed naturally in the panels while the narrator in the anime was a shittily voiced annoying disruptive faggot.

Jeremiah Richardson
Jeremiah Richardson

The difference is that the narration in the manga can be read at your own pace and the composition is built around it. In the anime it's just obstrusive, you're listening to a dude talk while there are stills of characters doing nothing like it's a powerpoint presentation or something. And it takes even longer when the characters talk after the narrator.

Chase Jenkins

Jaxon Parker

Camden Brooks
Camden Brooks

Yes, as flawed as 2011 is I don't think that's their fault. Narration in the manga is a small text box here and there, it's quick to read and adds to the scene, but when it's read aloud it becomes annoyingly conspicuous and lengthy. They're kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place because either the adaption gets rid of some of the narration and becomes less accurate, or it reads everything aloud to the point that it's an obnoxious, near constant presence.

Aaron Kelly
Aaron Kelly

Fair enough, but from partway into the Chimera Ant arc a lot of the story is told through the narration. It's not like they could just cut it out, and reducing it too much would lose a lot of the details of the story. I think it's just an awkward part to adapt to animation.

Julian Nelson
Julian Nelson

If it gets the atmosphere across as intended it IS good art, and there are no issues with his anatomy etc to detract from that. You're the dumbass who clearly thinks 'good art' is solely clean and polished linework with lots of detail. Togashi does that when it suits the scene, and avoids it when it doesn't. Pouf and Welfin freaking pissing themselves in fear are scenes that are very suited to more rough lines.

Wyatt Cooper
Wyatt Cooper

Gon is Hunter x Hunter’s Shounen Hero. Upbeat, headstrong, immensely loyal to his friends. For most of the series’ length, his passion lends strength to those around him – even as far as halfway through Chimera Ant, Killua remarks that “Gon is the light” raising him up. But by the end of Chimera Ant, all the variables that defined him have turned against him – fundamentally shaken by the loss of his mentor Kite, he ends up revealing how even the best intentions can sour if taken to their extremes. His optimism becomes an inability to accept death. His confidence ends up narrowing possible futures to the only thing he cares about, the only reality he can accept. And his loyalty becomes obsession – an overpowering need to save Kite that drives him away from everyone else who cares about him. By the time he realizes Kite is never coming back, he has become an instrument with a single purpose, and even the visual aesthetic of his final episode reflects this – as a former array of possibilities narrows to one, the color is bled from his world, till all that remains is black, white, and the red of anger, of blood. Our ability to instill value in others and our capacity for change can make monsters of even the best of us.

Isaiah Collins

-It's far too inconsistent in narrative and at times badly paced. Look at the latter half of the Chimera Ant arc for the best, or "worst", as it took such a long stretch of chapters to cover such a small amount of material over a short time-span, and all of a sudden Togashi felt the need to explain every little thing about the characters to use through out-of-character narration text rather than letting readers infer things for themselves; that's just bad writing, period.

-Togashi tries to make situations look dire by killing off previously established characters (minor ones, though), rather than doing it through good plot writing. This in Chimera Ant and also has happened a bit more recently in the manga as well. Its a cheap trick more than good writing.

-Togashi has a tendency to throw in too many new characters at once while barely characterizing any of them beyond a few quirks. See: the characters from the beginning of the Hunter Exam, the team working for the same mafia family as Kurapika in the York Shin City arc, the ones introduced in Greed Island, the 12 Zodiacs (oh, and you just have to love how he just threw Ging into the foreground story without any sort of build-up at all....and yeah, I'm being sarcastic)

-Togashi has a tendency to overexplain things in general. For things like the conept of Nen and other areas of the plot, it makes sense. However if Togashi's material was always as intelligent as people claim it to be he wouldn't need to have his characters explain things to the very last detail. This is a common problem with shonen in general, and for a series that's supposed to be as non-conventional as HXH, that's a mighty big convention he's still following. He doesn't ever try to be subtle and just express character emotion through artwork alone and he has a heavy over-reliance on text (of course, he has terrible artwork to begin with, and even fans of the manga can't really disagree with this)

I've always thought this type of attitude was silly. You're disavowing the genre while praising things involving pretty much the normal aspects of the genre.

Samuel Sanchez
Samuel Sanchez

-Togashi favors writing over-powered enemies rather than smart enemies. This is actually my BIGGEST issue with the series in general. There are some exceptions to the rule, of course, but anyone who reads any amount of shonen series knows that its a cheap tactic to make a villain seem threatening by making them so many times more powerful than the heroes that the heroes don't stand a chance. It makes things seem dire and hopeless, but not in a way conveyed by good writing. Examples are aplenty. I can give Hisoka the slide since he's sort of the goal that Gon has to work to overcome, but its absolutely ridiculous how overpowered the Chimera Ants are. To be fair about half-way into the arc he actually started giving them some characterization as Meruem changed his thoughts and ideas and came up with a goal of wanting to create a superior society through his selection process, but that development came about rapidly after the character had been well established, not as gradual development over a lot of instances but over having experienced defeat a few times by one person, Komugi. That's not really well-written characterization but bringing about a significant character change through a plot convenience that could have easily just been written in as soon as Togashi thought about it without having been properly planned out. I do like that he at least changed the character from a 1-dimensional villain, though, so I'll give him credit for that. In general, though, I MUCH prefer villains who have the edge over the other characters because they are intelligent. They don't need to be so much more powerful but should be able to constantly outwit their opposition and seem threatening through more than just their pure strength.

I can, malcuck.

Connor Jones
Connor Jones

The word ‘cuck’ gets used a lot lately.

Many people have taken a try at describing the phenomenon, but I think all existing descriptions of ‘cuck’ miss why the point and the power of the word.

They miss why ‘cuck’ is not merely a modern ‘faggot’ or ‘hippy,’ but actually something much stronger. The perfect description for a modern epidemic that is destroying our nations, our societies, and our souls.

The term cuckold itself comes from the cuckoo bird: a bird that is a brood parasite. The cuckoo bird lays its eggs in the nests of other birds. Once the egg hatches, the young cuckoo will swiftly destroy or eat most or all of the nest’s original inhabitants. The parents of these murdered young who come back to a nest with a baby cuckoo in it will ignore the carnage, and dutifully raise the young cuckoo as if it is their own chick. Indeed, because cuckoos are often much larger than the birds whose nests they parasitize, it is possible for cucked parents to literally starve as they struggle to provide for the murderer of their real children.

In this context, it is easy to see just why ‘cuck’ is absolutely appropriate to a certain breed of today’s politicians. A cuck politician is a cuck when he or she takes pleasure in his nation’s people being cheated on. He gains political standing and a sense of moral superiority when he allows poor little cuckoo birds to roost in his nations cities and towns. A cuck politician is also a cuck because he knows that if he were ever to act against the cuckoos in his midst, he would invite disaster. Riots, terrorism, beheadings… And, of course, the approbation of his fellows cucks.

And our nations ARE run by cucks. Let there be no doubt about it. Cucks in both senses of the word: they refuse to recognize their enemy, and they can great pleasure in siding with him against their own countrymen.

Cuckoldry has become an entire mindset. The modern cuck is not a cuck only in one circumstance, but in ALL circumstances.

Out of all the retarded shit from that mal pasta this one takes the cake, his interactions with Komugi were like the second or third thing we see him do.

I feel dumb replying to pasta but I don't get why people think Togashi's art is bad when his panel composition is obviously very good. No, his art is not the most detailed or a sheer marvel to behold, but you can clearly see a creative and experienced flowing of ideas that not many other mangaka can boast. It's like how I consider the OPM webcomic as still having interesting art even though from a conventional standpoint it looks like shit.

Also look at YYH, the man can draw when he tries.

Parker Allen

Its VERY inconsistent when Togashi all of a sudden starts using a narrator to constantly explain every detail of what's happening in almost every panel and what almost every character is thinking. He never did that so much before but he does it constantly in almost every page of ever chapter past chapter 270. How can you not notice that? Its very inconsistent and also takes the reader for granted since it pretty much explains everything and leaves nothing up to subtlety and leaves no room for viewer interpretation.

All the narrator does is provide an objective point of view, and it only happened for a chunk of the invasion. If you're going to call that inconsistent then you might as well complain about inconsistency because every arc isn't the same.
Also there are a lot of things left for interpretation, if you weren't in the threads when people asked things like if Pitou was honestly sorry you'd easily get 200+ posts of shitflinging.

Really? When I posted something like this a couple of years ago, there were maybe 1 or 2 people who agreed with me. Then again the community was smaller.

Just how many mangaka are much better though? If everyone could panel just as well and draw as well as Miura then I'd understand but it's not the case and Togashi is still notably good at using the medium to tell a story. It's just my opinion and I could explain why I have it but if you disagree I don't have much I can say. I also think Togashi's godly at conveying emotion through facial expressions.

99 Yorkshin is pretty much as good as the manga's, they even improved on a few scenes.
2011 on the other hand was garbage, the only scene they did right was the one where Gon and Killua get found out by Nobunaga and Machi. They ruined all the best ones like the requiem, the hotel scene and Paku's death.

The point is that Togashi should be able to see the art he's churning out now and realize it's bad, based on previous, better art he has drawn. It shows there's something wrong with his mindset. I'm glad you have a distinctive typing style (space after quotes, no capitalization) because it makes it easy to group your consistently retarded posts together.

Nathan Myers
Nathan Myers

I only watched like 3 episodes of the 1999 version, and all of 2011 and I can already say this.
1999 version is more respectable to the original character designs, as well as having a better sense of color. (Likely virtue of it being traditional vs digital)
2011 pointlessly removed Kite from the start of the story and recapped it towards the end instead. Why?
Some of the music in 2011 is really good. Some are really bad.
Censorship is reduced as you go along 2011, but gore is always covered up with burnt bread, which is even more idiotic than just cropping the screen.
First half of Chimera Ant arc feels like pure filler. Much like a lot of JoJo Stardust Crusades. They really wanted to drag the show out. Pacing gets better at the second half of the arc.
Overall, since 2011 goes further into the story I'd still recommend that to any body new to Hunter X Hunter.

I found it grating in the CA arc, for whatever reason. Some of it was good, but some of it felt lacking and almost like they rigged it up in Garage band.

because the guy criticizing doesn't understand. kuroro and the spiders as a whole are perfect products of meteor city. they only value the group, and not even their own lives. that's why kuroro (and the elder) aren't even capable of distinguishing between a corpse and a puppet. it's why the elder would send members of meteor city to blow themselves up just to avenge the death of one person. the spider is built around the same principles. its also the reason why kuroro is fighting by manipulating others and using them as living bombs as puppets because he thinks this assures him a 100% chance at victory.

it refers back to the question that gon asked him back during the york new arc. this fight is providing the answer.

and also gives insights into hisoka's belief in himself as the strongest. even when the odds continue to build up against him, he moves jovially ahead believing that his victory is assured.

why do people want to know more about a popular character's motivations and beliefs who has had a large effect on the story and the protagonists

and kuroro's possible death has implications for kurapika's story. in case you haven't noticed, much like the chimara ants, the dark continent is a SIDE BAR to the main goals of the main characters.

you don't get to qualify what the meat of the story is.

Elijah Brown
Elijah Brown

You're deriving this from Chrollo saying that a corpse, now devoid of thought or life, isn't a human anymore but rather a mass of rotting flesh? Many people think this. It doesn't fucking say anything notable about Chrollo's character, nor does it answer Gon's question because killing is very different from one's stance on something that has already been killed. What you're saying is basically headcanon.

By the story I mean this section of it, not the whole thing, and it's my impression that was describing what he sees as the meat of the fight (correct me if I'm wrong there, I guess). And I don't find that to be very engaging character-wise, it's just reinforcing stuff we've seen about him with fight techniques.

yes, the majority of humanity is very sentimental about corpses. if you can't see that then you are lost. even the spiders are considering they had funerals for paku and uvo.

that's the key point you're missing, kuroro isn't some sociopath, he was raised by the meteor city to become like this. but he's still human. and likewise, is full of contradictions like this.

Charles James

Shittiest thread since the end of the hiatus, I don't think we'll ever be able to do worse than this.

By the way, I doubt that Chrollo just wants to kill Hisoka. This fight is the perfect opportunity for him to manipulate Hisoka and kill Kurapika without involving anyone from the troupe.

Carter Baker
Carter Baker

no, he wants to kill hisoka. he's said it twice. it isn't anymore complicated than that. using hisoka wouldn't give them any higher chance of killing kurapika considering he's distrustful of hisoka and knows about his abilities.

cmon people, kuroro has gathered all these abilities with the express purpose of killing hisoka with a guaranteed chance of victory.
