The subtitle of the film is "Phantom Rouge." The kanji literally means "The Scarlet Phantom."
This is very exciting. Kurapika's been out of the main story for too long. Though I hope we'll get a dose of our three other mains as well.Quote:
It's January 21st, 2013, right? I just realized that's less than a year away.
Genius move by Togashi.
Now Togashi doesn't have to address the "Kurta Massacre" in the Hunter x Hunter manga and can instead focus on other things.
Well not that he had to in the first place but this way for all the Kurapika or Phantom Troupe fans out there wondering how it
all went down well now we finally get to know. But also since it is a movie and not the manga it will be optional canon. People
can say "it's by Togashi so it's canon." or they can say "Yes it's by Togashi. But it's not in the manga." and reject it. Their choice.
I think the movie will be great.
Were there ever any Yu Yu Hakusho movies? If so how were they?

BTW I'm guessing there will be more to it than just the massacre because that seems like it will be a short movie
Kurta Clan living in peace
Phantom Troupe wants their eyes.
Kurapika vows revenge
I mean yeah they could drag that out. But there's got to be other stuff going on too.
The younger Genei Ryodan... Yes please! The Kurta massacre is a must in a movie subtitled 'Phantom Rouge'. I'd like to see the Ryodan's infamous ruthlessness, especially Kuroro's casual cruelty when he thinks nothing of ordering his gang to eradicate a whole village (women, children and all) of peacefully living folks just for their eyes along with his very special type of crazed recklessness.
As for Kurapika... I guess what the old, 'Kurapika-centered' as some call it, anime had in abundance and the new anime lacks (that is, Kurapika-centrism) the movie will compensate. Only, I'm not sure I like how Kurapika turns out so far in the Madhouse version of anime, so not much hope there for me.
Anyway, a chance to see more of the Ryodan and everything related to them classifies as awesome in my book.
Maybe we will finally see who was the member Hisoka killed to enter the Ryodan. Also, a clue on the one who was assassinated by Silva later.
Too bad, it's not the Kaito gaiden/introduction. Mayben near the Chimera Ants arc? (wishful thinking here x])
About Yu Yu Hakusho, I know it had a OVA. But I may be wrong.
You guys are Hunter fans, need to read up more on your YuYu :P!
Well I should let you know there was only 1 movie I believe and two OVA's. Both OVA's were rereleased by Funimation recently entitled Eizou Hakusho, the other film was dubbed by someone else but is very good (IMO, as far as Shonen Jump movies go its my favorite).
Phantom Rogue is a great title! I can't wait for more original Kurapika and especially Phantom Troupe content. Written by Togashi no less? How awesome is that.
As far as yu yu hakuso goes there are two "films" one 30 minute one dubbed by funi and another 90 minute feature dubbed by some other chumps so you're better off looking up for subs online or something.
As for the Hunter x Hunter movie I can't help but feel a tad disappointed, but at the same time I completely get where they're going with this.
Disappointed because I wanted all four of the mains to be involved and well if kurapika's the centreic and Gon and Killua are heavily sidelined... so much for leorio. maybe he'll be in the credits or something XD.
But I do like the idea of going into the Kurata tribe massacre, though I wonder exactly how they're going to do this. Like Mr. sticky said before just a flashback, while can be possibly dragged out, serves for a rather short film. and like I said on a ANN post, if Kurapika and the Troupe ever mix, SOMEONE'S going to die. Still though its always a good Idea to use extra source materials to fill in those little spaces about the universe and I think alot of people will enjoy it.
As for me, call me shallow, but I want to see a trailer first. XP
Ok besides the Kurta massacre what other plot points would you like address in the movie?
In this film we could see:
-Kurapika's family and fighting styles(especially the one in his memory).
-The dead #4.
-Other Ryodan fighting styles(maybe they will spoil known abilities).
-Silva and Chrollo fight.
Ubo said Kuruta was very strong,maybe we'll see all of them in a serious fight. I really want to see Nobunaga's Hatsu and other abilities of Chrollo.
We'll be seeing Kurapika's family
we'll be seeing that darn friend Kurapika is holding
we'll be seeing who the ordered GR to get those kurta eyes, I have a feeling its from Meteor City...
we'll be seeing how Kurapika survive or is he really the lone survivor
and we'll be seeing how Gr massacred the tribe...
and many more... more...
Maybe this format will be Kurapika will tell Gon and Killua (so they can have minimal appearance)
or on the other hadn
Maybe this format how the story telling goes Kurapika has dreamt it again after fainting from the hostage exchange...
or then maybe we'll see him in Mafia boss uniform after the story...
when is it again Jan. 13?
How many episodes has been if that time comes its almost 65(I could be wroing on the counting) episodes in the anime....
Oh just now Megumi Han Fan said
I hope thats not true, I'm waiting for more press releases...

Hah, my wish actually came true .
Great news. I wish that Madhouse wouldn't be making the movie though.
