Now that I thinked for a bit longer, the 48 episode title could be referring to
48. The Virtue of Judgment
49. Analysis Through Pursuit
50. Comrade and Sword
I wonder if Madhouse is saving the Zepile stuff for after the Phantom Troupe arc.
Leorio's combat traits are rarely exhibited. Even though he has experience fighting, he's always shown to be outclassed when it comes to the battle junkies in this series. He's got street smarts for sure and Madhouse isn't making him out to be delicate. He knows how to handle a knife and can handle his own against many. But he's a lover, not a fighter. Hotheaded and impulsive, but ultimately soft-hearted.

Or a Chrollo fanboy? Or whatever. I thought we were all Hunter x Hunter fans here? I know what happens later on in the manga. But I'm
still "butthurt" anyways. Why? Because "later on" is going to be YEARS from now. Madhouse has had several chances to showcase Leorio's
physical strength but they have refused to do so for whatever reason.
I've said a billion times before that I compare both series to the manga.
I criticize the 99 when it misses the mark and I will criticize
the 2011 when it misses the mark as well. Which it did.
that so please do not argue as if I have unless you can provide a quote where I actually said that.
Madhouse is doing one of two things either
1. Intentionally editing Leorio's character
2. Unintentionally editing Leorio's character due to poor pacing.
Either way both do not sit well with me.
The intentional editing of characters is what I found bothersome with the 99 series and now it looks like 2011 will do the same.
Why is it such a crime to want the anime series based off the manga...to actually follow the manga?
Leorio may be a lover. But that doesn't mean they need to edit out his "brute strength".
Honestly, if they were doing the same thing to certain other characters people would have a fit. I'm surprised so few seem to care about Leorio
because for a moment I thought Leorio was HUGELY popular here. But maybe they only like that "soft hearted" side of Leorio.
But I don't want to have to settle for one half of Leorio. I want the entire characterization as Togashi designed and Togashi designed
Leorio as someone who although rarely DOES have combat traits.
What if they skipped.
Gon's sense of smelll
Killua's cat faces
Kurapika's argumentative nature
Hisoka's getting "excited"
Chrollo's love of books.
Kastro's playfulness when talking to Killua
Togashi has made the characters the way they are in the manga and that's the way I like them and like for them to be in the anime.
I don't want them to only focus on certain aspects because Togashi did not make the characters as so. Togashi made complex characters.
I want Madhouse to showcase that.
and I will be furious if Madhouse skips over the events of Volume 10.
I want HxH. Not the Kurapika Kurta Korner.
It's true that what i said is irrational but there is NO RATIONAL EXPLANATION we can give.I think MH doesn't have any excuse.In Zoldyck arc we could say it was because they wanted to show the "power of friendship" but what can we say here?They add fillers with Franklin and the Hide and Seek part is lenghtened.MH could easily animate Leorio's arm wrestle part but they did not do that.It seems completely irrational to me.
There's nothing wrong with that at all, but an adaptation doesn't always have to tell the exact same story as its source. I also dislike the omission of Leorio's scene, but generally speaking, omitting certain events present in the original story isn't always a bad thing. An adaptation can even become better than the original source because of that. In this case it was a little silly to have omitted a scene in the original manga, but perhaps in the future the story in the anime will be better because it omitted something extraneous or confusing present in the manga.Quote:
47: chapters 81, 82, the remainder of 83 and part of 84
48: part of 84, 85 and 86
49: 87 and 88
50: 89, 90 and 91
If Madhouse added a filler scene with Leorio punching something, mrsticky, you'd gripe about that too. There's no way to appease you if anything strays from the manga. An adaptation is an adaptation. If you want the manga, read the manga. They are two different mediums of entertainment.
Think about it this way, when
I feel like having another 10 minutes of armwrestling would've been too much. We've had little of Gon, Killua, and Leorio... and I don't want to see them armwrestling every time they appear. We know they're strong. They're just hustling some random street folks. The whole point of the armwrestling sequence is to one, introduce the strength of the Phantom Troupe; and two, a way for to earn money towards Greed Island. It's not to showcase Gon and Leorio's strength.
I can't this has lasted so long.
I want Madhouse to animate the manga. Not tell their own HxH story like with the 1999 HxH did. The more Madhouse changes stuff the less it becomes
the animation of the manga that I want and more the Madhouse story of HxH that I don't want. This isn't the first time Madhouse has changed stuff
and I have complained before but I'm complaining especially now because it seems to be happening more often in this arc.
I know. Some people may think the battleship arc is great art. I happen to find it extremely boring. But with Madhouse while I can't say I've ecstatic
about the fillers they are a little bit more enjoyable. Especially if they had something Leorio punching someone. I'm all for fillers like that. It's taking
away from the story not adding to it that bothers me. While filler can actually take away from the story if done wrong. If done right it can be great.
That said I can live without fillers too. So while they can be a nice thing IF DONE RIGHT I'm also perfectly happy with just following the canon.
Of course they are two different mediums. That's why I want to see the manga ANIMATED. Manga doesn't have sound, color, and animation, you know?
I don't think the arm wrestling scene would last 10 minutes. More like two. While that may be true that the end game was getting money
I find that to be a rather poor argument. The end game of Heavens Arena was returning Hisoka's badge. So why not just condense all the fighting
and nen training into an introductory paragraph have Gon punch Hisoka and then return the badge. Don't you think that would be terrible?
Leorio arm wrestling scene is much the same. Do you read the manga? Because if you did you would know that Leorio arm wrestling
had a point to it. It wasn't just RAWR LOOK AT HOW STRONG I AM!
Well I'm not sure if it was irrational. But either way I didn't like it.
You're right that an adaptation doesn't HAVE TO tell the exact same story. But as for me I want them to tell one awfully close to it.
I mean are we really going to say that the 1999 omitting Hisoka vs Kastro made that better? Well I suppose some of us would.
But not me. I VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY rarely ever want anything omitted. I will take the good along with the bad.
Though there's not much "bad" in Hunter x Hunter in the first place. But to me omission is like getting a watered down version.
Ok so here's what I'm trying to say.
I don't like the omission of Leorio's arm wrestling. To me it seems like the Yorknew Arc has taken the most liberties and I have found that bothersome.
I would much rather have everything animated and have to wait another week or two for Kurapika vs Uvogin. While I have led things like the delay
of Kite slide I think there comes a point in which enough is enough. My problem with the 99 series was the changes it made from the manga and
I do believe that some of you had that problem too. I think the vast majority of us were very happy when Madhouse animated the full Hisoka
vs Kastro fight. So it kinda baffles me that so many people are saying "Get over it. It's an adaptation." I mean it's like I'm arguing with 99 fanatics again.
Am I a manga fanatic? Well of course I am. But you see the "Get over it" crowd already GOT their version. It's called the 1999 version. But for
the people like me who wanted to see stuff like Leorio arm wrestling actually animated it's very likely that we'll NEVER get to see it animated.
1999 did a still shot which while a lot better than what the 2011 series had...or rather didn't have...still could be a lot better. I mean...it's a still shot.
Nine out of ten time actual animation is better than still shots. At the very least that's how I feel. Anyhow, some people seem to think that unless
the anime is EXACTLY like the manga then I'll gripe about it. But this is simply not true. The manga does not show Hisoka vs Bodoro but I was
happy to see it. Fillers if DONE RIGHT can be rewarding. But omission is pretty much a no-no for me. It's true that I haven't complained about
every omission. Like with the sushi exam for instance but had I known Madhouse would make a bad habit of omitting stuff perhaps I would complain.
If keeping Leorio arm wrestling means keeping the sushi exam then I'm perfectly fine with it. If it means slower pacing. Then I'm perfectly fine with it.
I do not believe that I am being unreasonable. And no I don't actually expect a Leorio knife fight but I do really want one. Because it would be awesome.
No. They can't skip Zepile. It'd be their worst change so far.
And btw, Zepile is in the ending sequence! He definitely should be shown until this season's end. And I'd say they should cover his part of the story before episode 50 as it is only till chap. 89.
If episode 48 is the end of
As for Leorio, I'm really upset they didn't show his scene, but it did have a reason. I mean, if the 'mole' wanted to bring Gon&co to the underground auction to bet on them, he wouldn't want to challenge them in the first place as he should know how powerful Gon is. Now Leorio could suggest sth like "if Gon is too powerful for you, then fight me", but the MH edited storyline assumed that they still had no need to challenge them as they could have a much less risky and more profittable business.

Hope? They wont. It's in the ending. Clear and simple. A tittle isn't always about the whole chapter. Guys, you're sometimes too much over-drama. xD
Some very little preview pics for episode 47:
Ok, so going by those pics (just one is relevant though ) :
Episode 47 will cover the entire fight. Since this scene only happen in chapter 84. But i don't know how they would end it. I guess this scene
So i think, episode 48 will cover the rest of chapter 84 + 85-86.
And then episode 49 & 50 will have the usual 2 chapters/episode pace.
