    Re: Hunter X Hunter New Anime Discussion

    Now this was the best freaking episode so far... 10/10. My only complaint is that they decided to move (hopefully not exclude) the part with Killua's story about Silva. It would have a bigger impact right before the battle.
    For the next episode, I'm a bit confused... They definitely can't remove all the omitted parts so far because that just doesn't make sense plot wise. But the episode showed a guy who appears only in the end of ch. 87, while now there are 84 chapters covered with omission of 8 pages of Gon&co stuff. I was pretty sure they wouldn't go further than ch. 86. Not to mention that the guy (don't remember the name lol) seems to be actively arguing with Zepile which is chapter 88... Man, I don't know anymore what's MH up to.
    P.S. RIP Uvo T_T

    I suspect they think that people will be bored or something with Gon searching for Greed Island and so are trying to get through that as quickly as possible.

    Depending on how the next episode is I might have to give up on Yorknew as far as the hunt for Greed Island goes.

    Though Kurapika's revenge story should likely be spot on. So I'll say 2011 for Kurapika. 99 for Greed Island Hunt. Lest Madhouse proves me wrong.


    After that it will be up to Greed Island to decide once and for all who is the more faithful to the manga.

    Actually, this part was rushed in NA version as well. They covered 85 through 88 in a single episode.

    the question though is how much is changed or left out.

    Really interesting review on Anime Say of this episode:
    http://youtu.be/1oSP3hAtfM4

    What he says about Kurapika's soul hanging in the balance in this arc is 100% true.

    "If you want to understand someone, find out what makes them angry."

    Re: Hunter X Hunter New Anime Discussion

    I waited two whole hours to watch this because our internet connection was that bad.

    But woah. Woah. I have no words.

    This is perfect. Just perfect. I think they nailed the characterizations here. Kurapika and Uvogin had amazing VA's. And yeah, I'm just gonna repeat what everyone already said with the torture scene and how you would feel sorry for Uvo, and you could clearly see the gray area in HxH, especially with Kurapika. So instead of expounding on that, I'm just gonna say that I like how they did Kurapika's eyes during the end, when he was burying Uvo. That dark, glazed look where you can hardly see any details... that's the set of Kurapika eyes I was looking for since the arc started.

    I always felt like the phone call was supposed to be chilling, and I think MH delivered well. I have no complaints over Kurapika's character here. I think he was done perfectly. He was the perfect balance of angry, composed, condescending, and calculating.

    I don't usually grade episodes, but 10/10 for me.

    Also, I forget, but was burying Uvo also in the manga? I just find it interesting that Kurapika still has the decency to bury the guy, haha.

    I had the same problem than you...Yes it was really perfect, the darkest episode.Even if i would have preferred Death Agony instead of The man of the reversed cross.At least,this episode showed that they haven't forgotten Genei no Banka.

    I find the fact that we feel sorry about Uvo's death a little funny because i realize after that without all these deaths,the manga wouldn't be the same.

    And yes,he buried him in the manga.

    Re: Hunter X Hunter New Anime Discussion



    I got goosebumps at 4:07 when Kurapika said "You will atone through death!" and Uvo makes that "Huh? Don't fuck with me you cocky bastard" expression. Shame I couldn't find a gif of that one. Uvo's facial expressions are just plain badass.

    but seriously when Uvo made that expression and went



    I was going YES! since then I knew it would be epic and it really was. My anticipation for this fight was really, really high but it was even better than I expected.
    Seriously, you just have to love this episode

    /fanboy rant over

    I disagree. I wouldn't actually mind if Kurapika doesn't show up next week, haha.

    And I just realized that next week Zepile will be appearing and everyone would be walking around Yorkshin. Worldbuilding opportunities!

    I am actually getting excited for the next episode. Madhouse, do your best. Make me fall in love with the place.

    Re: Hunter X Hunter New Anime Discussion

    I really don't have much too say, except that once again...



    If there was anything wrong with it, it was the sound. The sound effects were awesome in episode 35, though in this episode they were a little muffled (is that the right word?) due to the background music. Also, I really wanted to hear Death Agony in this episode. I really, really did. Anyway, besides those gripes, this episode was a work of art! Sawashiro Miyuki blew me away with her incredible voice acting!

    What's the matter, really? Am I the only one to find it one of the most entertaining parts?

    Re: Hunter X Hunter New Anime Discussion

    It is just me or does Kurapika actually look more feminine looking in this episode? Considering that he is a girl... I really got distracted by his look during the fight.
    I really like the fight scene but it wasn't at the level of Hisoka vs Gon fight.
    And the amount of blood in this episode was just...wooah. The manga version didn't have that much blood.Madhouse really wasn't kidding about the level of violence.


    8/10 for this episode.

    I do like that part but somehow Kurapika's story is more interesting and that's why most people pay attention to it.The 1999 version put the spotlight more on kurapika story.I hope madhouse doesn't do that.

    Re: Hunter X Hunter New Anime Discussion

    I really like how you get to see the difference in the length of Kurapika's hair when you compare his hair in the fight and his hair during the flashback. Minor detail, I know. But it's still interesting.

    Question: What did you guys think of Kurapika's eyes? I expected them to be a bit brighter honestly, though this is just me nitpicking. I do like how they used black and white for Uvo's death though, which really brings out the red in the blood and the moon, and of course, Kurapika's scarlet eyes. And I've already mentioned how I loved how his eyes looked when he was burying Uvogin.

    I find them to be just as entertaining as Kurapika's parts. Hence why I'm excited for next week. I love Zepile. And I think we need a breather from Kurapika for a moment, but that's just me.
