  1. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Just perfect the Feitan vs Zazan fight next week and I will be happy. Show me some speed. He was not moving nearly fast enough the last episode. Could be a warm-up.
  2. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Just because you like someone doesn't mean you have to exaggerate it to its fullest at first sight. In the manga, nowhere is that kind of hysteric passion to be found in Palm, even during their date....
  3. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Since someone has posted the chapter here, I would kindly invite everyone to look, very carefully, again at the few panels posted. All that is shown is Gon's purported compassion towards Palm. Palm's...
  4. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Great, now Palm has just become a lover for Gon all of a sudden.

    "So that children will understand why Palm is so kind to Gon later!!!!!" one Madhouse employee says.

    "Introduction is important....
  5. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    I don't know where all the sense you are talking about came from. Actually fairly speaking, talking about resolve in becoming a top Pro Hunter at that point in the story is what exactly is disrupting...
  6. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Don't worry, I think it might not happen again soon. For now.
  7. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Seems to be a sorry excuse of a filler to amend the irreparable mistake of not showing Kaito at the beginning of the show. A plot hole for sure. MD should seriously consider getting the fillers and...
  8. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    On the other hand, I thought MH's depiction of Netero's statues was more threatening than the manga. The facial expressions of the statues in the manga were more empathetic. It is hard to argue which...
  9. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Sense of speed!!!!
  10. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Actually also the awkward lack of background music during the fight. Agree that all in all it was a good episode. May see some improvements in future (actually, if you read the manga, the intensity...
  11. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Good episode. Good arm cutting. Some good music.

    Although, of course, it wasn't perfect in my eyes. And some glaring flaws which has been existing still exist in this episode.

    Clearly, the...
  12. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    The butcher I can overlook. But I will absolutely NOT overlook it if we do not see Kaito's arm flying off to the ground next week. Well, they already depicted human heads being stomped on.
  13. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Finally, someone else noticed the same point I did before I posted it myself.
  14. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    That, and the fighting between Feitan and Zazan before that is what I was waiting for the most.

    Move! Don't warp around, move!!!!! It is a series of very quick movements! Not teleportation!!!
  15. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    This shows the difference in destiny for different series.

    Actually, it is quite rare for the same opening song to be used for almost 2 years without being changed. I wonder why? Budget...
  16. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    I am not a person who watches many different kinds of anime, but I have been sufficiently exposed to a variety of media to give a fair comment about every aspect of a piece of work. Fairly speaking,...
  17. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    "Hate" is a strong word. Do not use that word lightly when I have only pointed out one or two things I do not like, or when I may not like the series as much as you do, or when my verdict for the...
  18. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Sorry for still being negative but this is too much. My ears were going to bleed from the background music that played during the Rammot / Ramotto fight.

    Other parts of the episode were acceptable.
  19. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Thank you for pointing this out. Mistake corrected.

    I think I must now forgive MH for assigning the female sex to Karuto, or Neferpitou...
  20. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Look at an early image of Karuto in the manga and call that monstrous.

    BTW I was only responding to what ZonikStrike noticed. Don't blame me for agreeing with him.
  21. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    It is not the first time MH adopted a "zero development curve" approach. Karuto, one of Killua's brothers, showed his "final" look (i.e. razor like haircut) the first time he appeared in Killua's...
  22. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    How would his (purported) interest in his "teammates" be relevant to what he has done so far in the anime? In fact, if he really only cared for his teammates (rather than NGL), he would have escaped...
  23. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    That he finally left NGL suggested that even that tiny bit of interest in his homeland is lost.
  24. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    These kinds of behavior does not suggest he has sympathy towards humans. His loyalty (and "drive to protect") is to the Queen and the ants. When the Queen is alive his loyalty towards her drives him...
  25. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    All that remained of Colt's past memories is a brief leakage of his sister's name out of his mouth when he talked to Peggy. Nothing more, nothing less. This is how I understand him (or it). What he...
  26. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Everything I mentioned did not appear in the actual manga. You may make an argument about "reasonable extrapolations" from the actual story. But my question is - why take the risk?
  27. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    It seems clear to me that not everything they are showing is in line with the manga. They have seriously messed up Jairo's character as described in the manga. Jairo is an outcast - a human being...
  28. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Another "introduction episode"...

    Seriously MH, the characters are gonna appear sooner or later, why are you so hasty in making them appear? In the end, are these fillers seriously necessary???
    ...
  29. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    And not to mention that he used his nen ability on an ant which could easily be crushed by anyone's feet. His judgment and battle experience is amateur at best. This is what I absolutely HATE about...
  30. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Actually too many things have been changed and I have already lost count of them. For me, the story was shattered into millions and billions of incoherent pieces and was forcefully pieced together...
  31. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...) - Part 3

    Kaito finally met Gon and Gon finally met Kaito, but they don't know about each other!

    Then Madhouse says "They did! Once! But it lasted only a minute, and they forgot about it."

    Great, now...
  32. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...)

    Sorry, but I must respectfully say that the physics of Bobobo's head was nothing more than a balloon with blood (maybe only some unidentified liquid) inside. That scene was poorly done and was...
  33. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...)

    Maybe. I cannot entirely reject that possibility, considering Nippon has consistently delivered a darker tone (and in my view understood the story better) than Madhouse's adaptation.

    We will have...
  34. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...)

    I think your comment is fair and fact based.

    I personally am worried what Madhouse will do in the coming Arc. Given the content in the manga, the level of violence has to reach at least that of...
  35. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...)

    This is a very rough translation of the Gon/Killua interview, I may do other parts later.

    Interview of Han Megumi (Gon)
    Q1: What are your comments and feelings after reading the Chimera Ant Arc...
  36. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...)

    It seems that the voice actors for Gon and Killua have (just recently) read the Chimera Ant Arc in the manga.

    This already is good to know. At least they had had some understanding of the...
  37. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...)

    Finally they are improving on the characters' body shapes. Gon finally shows his muscles. The "tree branch" limbs of Gon, Killua and Biscuit are finally growing in volume. Shoulder widths are...
  38. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...)

    OK, maybe not a "first-meet", but it will definitely be a "first-flashback" considering that the animators cut out every other Kaito flashback there is - suggesting that (at least in the anime) Gon...
  39. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...)

    They said it will be a "dramatic encounter" (it is the most accurate translation as far as I am concerned). This suggests that Gon will indeed meet Kaito for the first time.

    And no, please don't...
  40. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...)

    It seems that Gon will meet Kite for the first time after completing GI. I wonder how the heck the animators will explain the hatred Gon feels towards Pitou after Pitou kills Kite if Gon hadn't known...
  41. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! (Use Spoilers for safety...)

    Despite some people still finding this anime enjoyable, it does not distract us from the fact that the pacing is too fast.

    It has become more, more and MORE obvious that the directors are trying...
  42. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    That is true. Let's wait and see if "their time" will come. I just hope Hiroshi Kōjina didn't think he already gave a climax to each character. Well, he actually might, because in my view he already...
  43. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    The problem is that the "momentum" is so artificial that one (ok, at least I) will feel that every character is reacting to the situation impossibly quickly. If the characters (and actually any...
  44. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    Yes, and they said they will do it "like a drama".

    I have a bad feeling about this...
  45. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    And ironically, Nippon TV thought that it was a good idea to make this a show for kids to be shown on SUNDAY MORNINGS. Such intentions were confirmed by an interview with the anime's director Hiroshi...
  46. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    Your post just proved my point.

    See? Because the director(s) cut out the details where Kurapika captured Kuroro in a split second just as the blackout began, now you don't understand why the...
  47. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    I was talking about the episode aired on 2 Dec 2012 in Japan. It should be episode 57. It covers the part where Gon and Killua were kidnapped and taken to the hotel, where they attempted to escape...
  48. [Anime] Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    Just watched the new episode yesterday. And sorry that I am bitterly disappointed.

    I would say the pacing leaves much to be desired. Even having watched the old version AND the original manga, I...

    [Anime] Re: Hunter X Hunter Anime- Fall 2011

    Exactly, Gon is not innocent. Another example for this is (spoilers) his fight against Gensuru on Greed Island (/spoilers). Apparently some have preferred the 1999 anime Gon to the manga Gon.

    [Anime] Re: Hunter X Hunter Anime- Fall 2011

    As I said (or corrected myself into saying), not all Japanese fans of the old series criticized the new one. But I can assure you that criticisms do exist. If it is popular by opinion polls, then...
