Why do people hate the 2011 adaptation of Hunter x Hunter?

It's overrated everywhere except Sup Forums, and underrated on here. 2011fags confuse art style with animation quality and writing quality with adaption quality, and probably just like it because it's newer. It's way better than you can usually hope for in a battle shounen adaption, especially such a long series, but it's uninspired in comparison to 99 and screwed up Kite's intro and some other things. But a few fuck ups and mediocre direction/animation doesn't really warrant the sort of vitriolic hatred 99fags have of it either in my opinion, the manga is better than both either way.

Benjamin Young

Just curious, how is the 99 version of Hunter x Hunter more inspired?

It's an above average WSJ adaptation but not a replacement for the manga that it gets treated as. A lot of of retards shit up the threads with retarded questions because they didn't read the manga from the start.

William Wood
William Wood

It looks ugly and washed out and they changed elements for no reason. It's also a very bland and uninspired adaptation, especially when 99 came out before it and was a lot more creative.
It's not amazing or garbage but it's pretty mediocre and the worst way to go through the series.
I still really don't understand why they changed Gon and Kite's relationship so much, it's so nonsensical, episode 76 is mostly filler so it's obviously not even a pacing issue.

Wyatt Ward
Wyatt Ward

I agree.

Aaron Moore

Mostly because it put very little effort adapting shit.

Adrian Sullivan
Adrian Sullivan

Because 2011fags like to treat it as a replacement for the manga and it's really not. It makes matters worse when 2011fags participate in manga discussions where they tend to not understand what anyone is talking about, because they relied solely on an uninspired adaptation that over-simplified the story and uses its own interpretation on top of that, and don't want to accept the fact that the interpretation they took from may be wrong.

What I don't get is why they are bitching so much when you can see that there is more focus/implication in 1 fucking episode if this thing than there is in 20 episodes of OP this Show is literally in the Top 1% of adaptation (0.1% given Togashi shitty drawing).
When I see berserk CGI I want to murder them because there is a reason unlike this bunch of edgelord

Parker Lopez

You are just making shit up, I only watched 2011 and I have been in plenty of discussions about HxH on this board without a problem. Honestly, why are 99fags and mangafags so full of themselves? All you guys fucking talk about is how you are better than people like me for some dumb ass reason. If you guys stopped jerking each other off in every thread there wouldn't be any shitposting problems.

It was well received sure but it's lacks a lot of what made 99 great, namely a much stronger identity and visual flare. It's still good because, let's face it, Hunter x Hunter is a great series in any instance, but the way it gets paraded around as a masterpiece typically irks fans of the original. It's closer to the manga, sure, but I'd argue it's better to have a director with an original vision for the series than one who operates by-the-panel. Plus the so called filler in 99 is actually fucking good and adds quite a bit; I felt like there was a lot more time-wasting material in 11.

Basically 11 is good, really good and you're not at all wrong for liking it, but it does lack what made 99 so special for its fans.

In 99 the only good arcs were Hunter Exam and Yorkshin. Tower of Heaven was full of censorship and Greed Island had awful animation.

Asher Gray

Does the truth hurt? They do do this, and after they get confused over something and you tell them to go read the whole manga because 2011 didn't either skipped over it, or it didn't divulge the information in a way that made it understandable they'll get mad and blame the manga.

Logan Bell

Mason Green

The hate is extremely exaggerated on Sup Forums because 99fags are jealous and insecure that it's more popular than their very favorite adaptation, and mangafags want to act like any criticism leveled at HxH is because 2011 just adapted it poorly or that anyone who disagrees with them only does so because they're an animefag.

The only way to get 11turds to finally kill themselves is for Togashi to fill entire chapters with exposition instead of a couple of pages.

The 99 animation is way better from an aesthetic point of view, but the current anime industry doesn't care about quality.

It sounds like 99 is worth checking out. Am I right? Basically, I just want more HxH because it's probably my favorite battle shounen ever.

Nicholas Allen

They have their strengths, 99 probably more than 11, but honestly they both suck in different ways. If only the manga was colored.

Thomas Barnes

Yeah. Don't bother with 99' Greed Island though. Actually i'm not even sure if it truly is part of the 99 version, it's so different.

Comparing the manga and anime is pointless, comics and cartoons are two entirely different medias. Reading the source material of every series should be mandatory really anyway.

I'm still bummed that 11 fucked up Greed Island's pacing. It's my favorite arc and they got the atmosphere and design right, only to plow through it to get to CA.

Jacob Williams
Jacob Williams

Its definetly overall better than the 1999, but 2011 sometimes is too rushed in pacing (1999 was WAY too slow pacing)

The soundtracks are generic and often poorly used (However the 1999 has terrible sound effects and mixing)

When 1999 is animated well, it looks better than 2011, but the average episode looks worse generally with a blander color pallete, and often less creative shots.

Gabriel Gray

this nostalgia meme
You'll find that most people who claim that '99 is superior today are those who just watched it for the first time and have no nostalgia for it. To people who watch both adaptationsides they can see the effort in one adaptation and the lack of it in the other.

Most mangafags don't want people to watch 2011 because it'll confuse people who attempt into the manga and enter discussions.

Nips don't like it because they consider it to be a cheap cash-in made with little effort, that pales in comparison to the original work.

You'd think that and yet hilariously enough that didn't happen. Most '99fags were perfectly capable of jumping right into the manga immediately after the '99 adaptation ended, without getting the least bit confused.

Though that may just be because '99fags were capable of acknowledging that '99 wasn't a replacement for the manga, they were willing to read the manga and accept that there were differences between the two. And even among those who weren't willing to read the manga they still understood it a hell of a lot better than 2011fags do today.

Though remembering the common complaint about 2011 at the time it first aired it's not so surprising in hindsight.

They even changed Netero's dialogue in pic related to "Humanities infinite potential for evolution" instead of "Malice". The usage of malice in the original line of the manga is supposed to show that humanity can just as easily show the level of evil the ants had shown in the arc, if not even more so. It paints a dark image of humanity, and then immediately 'Rose' comes up, showing one of humanities most evil creations.

That change even if it looks small made me upset.

Jace Harris

They didn't change it. The original text said evolution with an alternative reading that said malice on top of it, suggesting that our potential to evolve and our ability to destroy are one and the same. I don't like the 11 adaptation but that was something that's impossible to transfer into an anime.

And in 2011 Gon is really excitable and enthusiastic for some reason, Gon could have a neutral face in a scene but the anime gives him a big ol' smile and excited tone.

1999 completely changed character personalities and did their own thing with them.

Michael Lopez

This is completely retarded. There was nothing in 2011 that was changed so drastically that it would make people "confused." As always, you just want to call anyone who disagrees with you a misguided 2011fag.

Actually it was the other way around, with the furigana reading "shinka", meaning evolution. The anime chose to voice the alternative meaning.

James Davis

like 2011 didn't do the same thing.

There were tons of people asking why Gon cared so much about Kite or who Gyro is after the anime aired.

Carter Rivera

The anime did show Gyro's backstory, though. It just didn't show him in town.

Jonathan Cruz

He definitely looks skinnier in the anime, look at his elbow.

The manga is less mainstream than the anime so the anime tends to bring in the worst people. Its a defense mechanism
Not saying that the anime is better than the manga, but to say the anime-adaptation was shit is ridiculous

Jeremiah Peterson

It definitely didn't to the same extent.

2011 followed the manga/Togashi far better
Retarded filler of Kite ignoring the centaur ant and watching Gon's fight right after he says not to take his eye off the enemy

In the manga the fucking dude dies off screen. Kite was never in any danger only Gon and Killua.

Oliver Cox

In the west maybe, the manga is far more popular than the anime in Japan. I'm pretty sure 2011 flopped, actually.

David Hall

who Gyro is after the anime aired.

But the anime fucking explained this.

The anime also shows why Gon and Killua care so much for eachother perfectly fine.

Why do you make shit up, user?

Christian Diaz

Why the fuck do people care so much i've seen these cancerous threads almost every day just watch what you want to watch and if you want to know what has been left out just go to fucking google for your answer

99 did Hunter Exam and York Shin better.
11 did Heavens Arena and Greed Island better.

99's director is better with darker material.
11's with more traditional fighting shounen arcs.

99 was a more creative adaptation.
11 was more faithful to the source material.

That about sums it up.

Gavin Long

99 has too much worthless oc shit

flopped

Not arguing that the manga isn't more popular, but long running shounen anime are never intended to move BDs.

Asher Evans

It's not mainstream in the west unless one thinks being popular on MAL = mainstream. The anime didn't even come out in the west until recently.

Julian Stewart

What even was that nonsense

Jason Stewart

And yet it's what happened. Whether or not you believe it's retarded doesn't change the fact that that is what happened. 2011fags have a much harder time jumping into the the manga and following discussions than '99fags ever did. There are a ton of people who were confused about Gon caring about Kite, people who actively believe that Gon's journey was solely about finding Ging, the nature of Nen, everything about Killua, wtc.

2011's changes aren't in big scenes but rather in the details, which ultimately add up into a different picture. And as everyone knows the devil is in the details Which again feeds right into the biggest criticism lobbed at 2011 when it first began airing, it literally copies manga panels yet still somehow misses the point.

Samuel Foster

They didn't say Gon would eventually meet Gyro is what i'm trying to say, maybe i didn't express it correctly.
Also i said Kite, not Killua.

Of course they didn't. Hunter x Hunter wasn't getting chapters for TWO years during the time the anime aired.

Why hype people up for something they would never see.

We knew the main points however. Which was all that was needed at that point.

You clearly haven't watched the 99 anime recently if you honestly believe that.

It's overrated in other places and Sup Forums is contrarian.

99fags and 11fags are both faggots, you can like both.

manga best

Leo Anderson

But its not? The 2011 series said who Gyro was entirely.

We knew he was the true king of ngl
We knew he broke free of the queen and left
We knew he was still alive

Only thing we didn't have is the scene saying Gon will meet him some time in the future assuming that ever happens.

Jacob Roberts

Why did 2011 fuck with Leorio so much? Now the anime watchers think that he's a weak ass faggot when he's actually the strongest main character physically.

Gabriel Perez
Gabriel Perez

Second strongest.
Actually I wonder where he ranks in physical strength now

Daniel Bell

Gon isn't even done right in the 1999 version

1999
Gon asked Tonpa to carry Leorio when he was exhausted
Gon being a rape victim when Hisoka punched him and gave him back his badge
Leorio take's Ponzo badge instead of Gon stealing

2011/Manga
Gon watched Leorio in silence because he knew he could make it through on his own
Gon was upset in silence due to his bruised ego
Gon stole the badge from ponzu when she was passed out

This is just small examples.

The 1999 anime made Gon less selfish and more typical no lie no cheat shonen hero.

The only thing 1999 did far better was how it handled Kite.

Connor Murphy
Connor Murphy

Killua is stronger than him and still unless something is shown otherwise.

Anthony Reed

Leorio hasn't done much in this arc so far
I'm upset.

I don't think Leorio even has a master who trains him. He's only been studying medicine and practicing the basics of Nen since we last saw him in York Shin.

He's right next to Enhancer in affinity so if he trains he'll probably end up just below Gon in strength.

Zachary Young

1999 LOOKS LIKE SHIT. LIKE ITS HARD TO TELL WHAT'S OGING ON IN THE SCENES. SHIT SHIT SHIT REE

I want to see Leorio fight, at the very least we know he has high physical strength and is fairly competent and able to defend himself.

Also he punched Ging, bet your favorite character didn't do that.
