One of the Best in the Past and yet

but the opening song much better in the past :D
I don't have to say anything, but honestly this anime is always giving me a Goosebumps.
first off themanwithnoname2 u have no taste in anime if u think fairy tail sucks, u haven't even giving it a shot and your talking shit about the anime threw reviews and every thing. and also don't insult a anime that YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED IT TILL THE END. if you insult a anime without watching the whole thing, then u have no right to talk down on that anime. if you think i am wrong then i would like to see you make a better anime, with each episode with a dead line every week on a certain day. if you can not do that and/or watch a whole anime, then you have no right to insult that anime for NO REASON WHAT SO EVER.
Hunter x hunter is a remake of the 1999 hunter x hunter. but this version of HxH keeps going on unlike the 1999. The main character is named Gon. he is 12 years old and is one of the youngest people in this anime to ever take the hunter exams. a hunter is a person to travel the world and do dangerous tasks assigned to them. Gon became a hunter to find his father "Ging." Threw out the anime, Gon meets new people that sometimes becomes his friends, acquaintances, or enemies.
This anime is my #3 out of my top 10. i would recommend this to any one who likes action, adventure, or even super power anime. Even though the manga has stopped, i have high hopes that this anime will keep pushing foreword
Out doing its predecessor
While the description does call it a remake, it is pretty obvious it is following the source material much more closely to someone who read the manga it is based on.
With the exception of recap episodes, there have been none of the filler-episodes the last series had, which in my opinion, are a bore to watch in any anime series if there is a source material you read already that guides your knowledge of the timeline of events.
The animation is really good, showing the improvement of technology in the last decade. The proportions are especially notable; Gon's hair is exactly as it is drawn in the manga, where as the 1999 series felt the need to shorten it.
I am truly thankful to know the animators are doing their best to recreate the HxH world instead of adding their own interpretation...
There is little to speak of about the plot, story, and character development, since I am writing this so early on in the series. All of these are things that can be only fully appreciated in hindsight.
On that note, some people may say that the show seems to start off a bit slowly, but that is only because most anime (even Ads and TV shows) have a tendency to try to cram a lot of content as quickly as possible. They want new content always flowing, so you do not get bored. Some viewers have grown accustomed to that.
The case is very different for HunterXHunter. As a person whose read the source material, I know that within each scene, there are always several dynamics playing out, and what could be seen as an overstretched moment is actually a moment of extreme tension. Typical fans will not even notice this, until they read it again in hindsight.
HxH is as much a drama as it is an adventure series; conflict is rarely, if ever at all, purely physical. If you allow yourself to be empathetic and immerse yourself into the psychology of the individuals, the stretches of non-action will no longer seem like an awkward waste of time. The emotions in the air are sometimes almost, dare I say, tangible.
To bring the point home:
I am of the personal opinion, that if HunterXHunter (the manga) did not have to go on hiatus so frequently, it would have surpassed the top mainstream series (Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach) a long time ago.
How do I support this claim? The very fact that despite being on hiatuses of over a year, it has yet to be cancelled. Better yet, they have gone as far as to contract another anime for it.
This series is the only shounen series I have ever read that is on par with Fullmetal Alchemist.
Like FMA, from the very beginning, it hints of a complete story, allowing foreshadow to be dropped everywhere. It shows off a world completely imbedded in a supernatural phenomenon that could easily exist within our own. Characters continue to progress, despite us not seeing them, something many writers tend to neglect. To sum it all up - Realism within fiction.
No detail about the story is ever half-baked.
If you have a taste for adventure, for something new, then HunterXHunter is sure to please.
I have encountered a lot of fans don't seem to like the energy of the new series - shrugging it off as being more immature and lacking the "darkness" of its predecessor.
But, with the series having gone over 40 episodes, I found that the series knows how to be dark where it needs to be - The dangers and evils that Gon and his friends face are most indisputably dark.
The degree to which Gon's brightness opposes the dark themes he encounters only increases my satisfaction with the series that much more by allowing me to appreciate both the fact he is a 12 year old and the severity of the obstacles he must face.
In my opinion, the 2011 remake does a much better job of showing the vibrant and beautiful world I think Yoshihiro Togashi wished to share with us, without slacking on the mature themes at all.
Been waiting for this for soooooo long ;D
Hey everyone this is a remake of the original hunter x hunter with newer animation that will suposivly continue on up to and past where the original left off! :DD yay!, and may cut out some less important parts.
OK so hunter x hunter is a true anime lovers anime, some people just looking for action and cool characters may not like this at first because of the younger characters and animation. BUT give this anime a chance if your willing this is a great anime and one of my all time favorits.
Hunter x Hunter is an anime that grows on you, the characters are amazing and the main character "Gon" in filled with mistery and a suprisingly pure aditude that will touch you heart, with memorable support characters this anime will keep you wanting more every week!
Ok so this anime is about Gon a young boy with amazing natural talent who wants to become a fabled "hunter". (a person who explores the world in search of treasure, discovery, new creatures, and adventure.) Gon's father left him while he was a young boy to continue to be one of the greatest hunters of all time, but instead of hating his fater Gon strives to be a hunter himself to descover why his father loved it so much and to one day meet him.
This anime is an action anime, now dont expect naruto like fights with crazy technical styles and moves, the key to the action in this anime is wonder, you dont really know how strong anyone is or can be untill they are reviled in this anime, leaving a great setting before a battle that will leave you guessing how things may turn out and a great wonder of what/who elts could be out there. But the potential of Gon is great not only is he a good person with good intentions but you dont want to piss this kid off, he is constantly underestimated by his oponets but they soon learn of his amazing ability.
So to wrap it up please watch this anime its a wonderfull show and has the potential to be a new naruto/bleach/onepeice, the manga is ongoing and has over 300 chapters. If you consider yourself a serious anime fan that is looking to watch new things and has never watched the original you need to check this out, but i suggest watching it week by week as i find that a much better anime experience than craming it all into a couple days, but if you cant do that and want to watch the original i understand.
