    For me, it seems very unlikely that they will lost money from it. From the trailers, it doesn't seems like a very high budget project to begin with.
    Thanks bopop!

    How does the budget seem, compared with Phantom Rouge?

    Not sure, but I can tell you the animation was dramatically worse than Phantom Rouge and the TV series.

    Characters were off model the majority of the time -- only during fights were they really on. It was quite depressing

    Excellent. In the face of a flop, that's very good news.

    Haha! I don't care if it was bad during the non-fights, then. People were complaining about the badly animated fights in Phantom Rouge for the most part, anyway. (As little as there might have been.) This signifies that it must have not been much of a loss in the box office, which is a big concern.

    CD singles for Hyouri Ittai are also selling well. So that should give Madhouse another boost.

    Nice to see HxH has become so popular & still going strong. When the fansubs came out in 2001, it never really drew much attention. Of course you still had to get subs of VHS & DVD back then.

    Kurapika never has been & never will be a girl. I can understand mistaking Kalluto (crossdresser), Neferpitou (hermaphrodite), & Alluka (transgender) for girls, but not Kurapika.

    Speaking of Togashi's love for LGBT topics, Phantom Rogue was 100% pure pandering to yaoi fangirls from beginning to end, not unlike the 2ed season of shounen anime Kuroshitsuji. Also apparently onboard with the Creepypasta meme.

    Admittedly, the fight scenes were disappointing....Those dolls don't bleed when you hit them & the fight scenes could have been a lot longer. The background art was landscape eyecandy, but I'm not going to pretend that the characters weren't a little off-model at times. http://images6.fanpop.com/image/phot...41-300-301.png

    All of the new characters for Last Mission are male & bishounen. Color me unsurprised.

    How many times during the Yorkshin Arc did Kurapika tell his friends that he'd die if he used that technique on anyone outside of the Genei Ryodan?

    Both movies will be canon to the 2011 anime, like how the filler episodes that didn't happen in the manga were canon to the 1999 anime. The live action musicals weren't canon to anything though......They should make more of those. I won't be surprised if the animated series continues on past the 13th Chairman Election Arc, despite lack of source material to work off of.

    ^No, MadHouse is not a company that's so fond of filler. With the late-night time slot, which doesn't get as much viewership, they have no choice but to end it off around where the manga currently is. That is unless some sort of "miracle" happens for the anime, maybe, by that time.

    The thing about Kurapica's chains only applies to chain jail. His other chains can be used without him dying because it would be too inconvenient if he came across a strong non-ryodan nen user in battle.
