Hmmmm this idea just suddenly popped into my head and i'd like to know what everyone thinks of the possibility of there ever being a hxh movie and whether you would actually like one.For me i would and would not want a movie. I would like a movie because it might signal a start to the continuation of the anime and also might bring in a bigger budget for the company to make the anime. Not that the anime was bad in anyway but it's always good to have a high budget.
On the otherhand i don't really see a movie for hxh working. I just get this feeling that it's not an anime that could work as a movie. I dunno what it is but does anyone else feel the same? If they were ever to make a movie I'd rather them adapt one of the arcs like the York Shin arc into a movie, instead of coming up with a whole new plot. But even then i don't think I would be happy lol. It would be great to newly animated scenes, but there was so much in that arc that stuffing it into a 2 hour movie is bound to end badly.
Also I think that arc was already done so well in the anime, with lots of tension and suspense that the movie would have a lot to live up to and it would be a shame to see it fall short of everyones expectations. Well those are my opinions, sorry for rambling on. What do you all think?
Actually, I think a movie would work very well with this anime. Not sure how to explain it, I just get the impression basically anything could be introduced into the plot and it´d still fit into the HXH world provided it does not messes up the rules that have been given concerning nen.
I think it could work perfectly too.
Nen is a complex thing and there is lot of stuff and characters to be shown, techniques to be made and stuff to complete the HxH world.
I would love it.
Sorry it took me a while to reply lol. Yeah i guess i was being too pessimistic. The world of hxh is vast so i suppose there are lots of possibilities for a movie XDD I'd love to see Kurapika and Leorio make an appearance if there was ever to me a movie. I miss those guys
Yeah, Movie title !

Is there a link for more information? I want to see if there is any more info on it. 12/1/2013 can't come soon enough...
No, just that ! It's on the official website.
Action & drama, apparently. About the Kurta's massacre ?

Maybe it will be about GR creation.
The movie comes out in January and Togashi is writing it. Looks like he didn;t take a hiatus for nothing after all.
This is the important paragraph:
I can understand that it's an original story. But it also says something about Togashi, and the plot of the movie.Quote:
Hopefully Togashi is writing it... Popo, futurefrog, we need you for translation!
YES! now I know the movie will be awesome!
Can anyone translate the movie's name? And I am so glad that Togashi wrote it, that way its awesomeness has already been confirmed!
Guess this dispells the rumours that he has been sitting on his ass playing Dragon Quest since putting the manga on hiatus haha
I'm guessing this may be a story set after York New, or revolve around the Kurta Massacre. Lets wait for more details, as currently its a little vague.

This website has all the information covered in English for you non Japanese speakers:
This site translates the movie as The Scarlet Illusion, not sure if that is the official English title. I translate the image title as something close to The Scarlet Phantom or Red Phantom. We will see what the official title will be for English release soon enough I suppose.
Also Togashi has written the story himself and is most like going to be canon from my understanding. Its all pretty vague at this point. Not a lot of details outside a point here or there.

For a second I thought it said December 2013 but I forgot Japan puts the day in front of the month for dates. Looking forward to January
