I had always imagined Gido as red when reading the manga. I don't know why. I never imagined him being dark gray like in the 99 series. Anyone got a screencap of Sadaso in 2011 series?

Good to see Madhouse keeping the guys as handicaps. Riehvelt looks pretty dorky on that scooter, but I think Sadaso looks pretty cool with his arm outside of sleeve. Makes him look like a samurai.

As for the trailers, I have to admit I like em. I do hate how they spoil everything though, like Killua's trailer should have ended with them asking if he can live on his own instead of adding illumi, and leorio's could have done without the snake scene. but all in all they at least tried to keep people hooked with the whole "will they make it or not" shtick. and while spoileriffic, I liked gon's trailer especially, since it really made it look epic that gon was even living after all that, which is something alot of other shows and stuff fail at.
Wow thanks SHINOBI-03 for the comparison, I completely forgot how far 1999 series went to change the enemies' handicap to make Gon and Killua appears more innocent...that's awful. I hope the new one doesn't do that.
Strange that it didn't even register how 'mess up' can be when I read the manga that these guys are handicapped. I did frown a little when Gon broke the spinning guy's standing rod, I always found that scene cruel. Now I wonder how did they get up to floor 200 in the first place? I remember weapons aren't allowed in the lower floors.
As for someone mentioned they never realized how uneven and poorly drawn the 1999 series was, I think most people only remember the glory part (the Yorkshin) where the art quality was stable and top notch. They tend to ignore that anything before that was very uneven, even for its time (nah this 'back in those days' excuses doesn't work cause there were other series back in the 90s where the drawings are better than that). Particularly Gon's face, he always looked almost pedestrian as his eyes are drawn like a background character and his face constantly changes.
While I think it was definitely inconsistent (only about half the episodes had what I'd refer to as the A team animating it), I never thought the 1999 series was "poorly" drawn when compared to several popular 90's anime. ( off the top of my head :dragonball, yuyuhakusho, early trigun,early onepiece, mobile fighter g gundam,bad days of evangelion etc)

Yeah Gon was always funny looking to me in the old anime. I think they only really got his design down in the Greed Island OVAs.
I think it's just pure censorship - they didn't want kids to see a cool child character threatening others with a knife, bad influence and all...
I wouldn't be surprise if the new version censored it the same way.

Killua will have a knife. I believe in Madhouse.
BTW did anyone notice how they ADDED blood in when Killua punched Zushi?
You don't actually see that in the manga. At least not so obviously.
they didn't censor this scene.
so I think they might not censor the scene of Killua threatening Sadoso.
They could always go the creative route with weird camera angles and effects, etc...
I think Hisoka vs Kastro will be minimally censored and by that I mean it won't go into
too graphic detail on the dismembered arm. Like you won't see all the nerve endings
and all that.
