Philosophical Anime and the Best Shonen as well !
Rather than a Review this will be sth more like a Suggestion, because the latest Episode gave me the chills and the urge to spread this series, cos its way too underrated. This Show deserves the hype, for one its Story is soo good and well built, its almost like a Book and takes you in a World full of Adventure. The Plot makes sense throughout and has a lot of unpredictable turnovers. Everything is logical and nothing is out of place and everything follows the rules of the fictional Worl H x H plays in. The Character Development is extremely good and gives insight into the characters, be it villains or main chars, making them more likeable. The variety of characters is another strong Point, there is a favourite character for everyone, be it badass characters or creepy types. The Mind games are very well inplemented into the plot and there are a lot of moral related topics and ethical questions in it, but what makes this so good is that they are so well merged with the events, you need to think about them and can relate to them better. Please do not let yourself be influenced by the first eps, this Seties gets better with each episode and is nothing for kids. To too it off the Animation is amazing and the action scenes are great, but the soundtrack and osts are even better. The combination of the genuisly story writing by the Mangaka and the great Adabtation makes this Anime a cinematic experience for the senses and likers of series like Neon Genesis Evangelion, Death Note etc. If thats not enough please check out episode 126.
Masterpiece from Madhouse Studios ( Prodocers of Death Note, Monster, Trigu
H x H is about a young Boy named Gon who leaves his home at age 12 in order to become a Hunter and find his Father Ging, who is one of the strongest Hunter out there. On his adventures he meets 3 Friends for life, who complete the 4 main characters. Each one of them has his own goals and complexity to them. The plot is great and unpredictable unlike many other overrated big Anime out there. This Anime starts pretty peacefully and beautiful, but after that explodes and a lot of gore comes into the game. The brutality and horror factor rises by 500% and makes for a very thrilling experience.
The Animation in the beginning is decent and kerps getting better and better and is superior to most Anime, thats typical for Madhouse. They also managed to make the Anime 20 times better then the Manga in my opinion by using masterpiece soundeffects , osts etc. Trust me you will be amazed: From heartwarming osts to epic Battle osts and creepy osts, theres anything for everybody. Its best to watch this Anime in HD, so that you can fully enjoy the great Animation, that so many Shonen lack. There are so many reasons that make this Anime so great, so far there are no plot holes, everything is according to certain rules, power ups are bound to these rules ( it will be explained in the show ). Many characters that you may lgrow to your heart will probably die so be warned lol. So people just get over yourself and watch this show ! Shit gets real after ep 40, anything beyond that establishes the friendship , the characters etc. Have fun watching one of the best Animes of all Time !!
The best anime I've seen so far
I think that it goes without saying that Hunter x Hunter is one of the best anime out there right now. I won't lie, I haven't watched nearly as much anime compared to some of the other viewers, but HxH can easily compete with a lot of popular regular (Live action) tv series. It centers around Gon who goes on a journey to find his father and along the way, follow in his footsteps by becoming a Hunter as well. The animation right off the bat is top notch and and pretty much stays that way throughout it's whole run. The fight sequences are on another level and this becomes more apparent the farther along you get into it. The same goes for the music throughout the series as well, which is decent. Although, the place where Hunter x Hunter really shines is through it's characters and plot. The complexity and depth with all the characters introduced is really something to behold. The characters introduced aren't some predictable throwaway characters. The development is great and it's clear that a lot of time and effort was put in by MadHouse and the author Togashi. Last, but not least is the plot which you can never really predict. It always keeps you on your toes and doesn't fail in surprising you at every turn. It's also completely faithful to the manga, so there's no need to worry about any bad filler. Hunter x Hunter is really a series that was based on quality and I can't praise it enough for that. I can't recommend it enough.
H x H > BIG 3
It's one of the best animes in Japan for a reason. It may not have a huge fan base like Naruto or Dragon ball Z but that's because it was so successful in Japan they had no reason to send it to the west, That alone shows how good this anime is. The manga came out around the same time One Piece did, so yes it is older than Naruto but the author was successful that he went on a couple of hiatuses, which is why this anime isn't completed but as of today the author has came out of hiatus and I can say with confidence this anime is only competing with it self, honestly I was so surprised to find out how old this anime was. If you think about it the big 3 basically copied all their shit from this anime. H x H was 10 years ahead of everyone else and still is. My first impression of this anime was how pathetic Gon the main character looked and his weapon (fishing pole) but as I watched further this anime made me eat my words. Trust me later on you will love Gon more than Naruto/Luffy, just wait after the 20th episode things get real. The beginning is slow as all shounen animes are, It's the highest rated anime in Nwanime for a reason, must watch for all anime lovers.
Heck! I showed this to my GF who loved Naruto so much and she now considers H x H her favorite anime lol.
