    Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    I don't think it would be too hard. They have the entire silent film era of cinema to draw inspiration from. And in modern days you have films like 2011 Academy Award winner The Artist, and Wall-E's first 45 minutes were wordless. I would love it if they went for something like that. Nothing but great animation and music to tell the story. Classy.

    Probably will have a musical piece playing over the imagery. I'm guessing whatever the OP or ED theme is at that time. Or they could use a soundtrack song, which of course should be this:



    It sounds so melancholic yet hopeful. I love Departure for this reason.

    This song plus chapter 339 would be a great cut off point to the anime. Gives it a sense of finality with Gon meeting Ging since that was what I would count as the main arc of franchise

    Madhouse could always just make a Hunter x Hunter Part 2 or whatever to continue the story with the remaining plot threads like Kurapika/Chrollo and the Dark Continent

    I think now that Gon's hunt of Ging is complete, and Killua now has the goal of protecting Alluka, there roles are now reversed. Gon will now be searching for what he wants to do much like Killua was. I think Gon will travel with Kite though, romantic subplot anyone

    It will be a challenge since some people think Madhouse isn't very consistent with the quality or proper placement of music lately. And since it's textless, BGM will have an even more profound impact on the episode.

    Though when Madhouse does the music right, they really do it right. So idk. I'm kinda excited for this one since it's one of my favorite parts of the manga.

    I think that Madhouse gets the musical placement right 90% of the time. I am sure they will get that moment right. I just imagine Departure for Strings playing alongside it. Just the thought gets me teary eyed. Oh Meruem and Komugi!!

    I think they kinda mess up with the music placement most of times, to be honest.

    BUT I've to admit that I really like how they handle silences.

    The sea looks red,
    a surging sea of flames
    looks like the entrance to hell

    What are some examples of them messing up with the music placement? I've loved how they've used music for the series. It is one of the things that stood out for me.

    Most of the times they use Chain B@$tard for Kurapika's scenes, but the one that stood out to me was at the farewell scene in episode 36.

    What!? I think Chain Bastard is underused!

    One thing we can all agree on is that the music placement in this series has really divided fans.

    I can't think of a single time off the top of my head where I felt that a song was out of place. If anything I've been consistently wowed by the excellent placement and timing. I think that this is one of the greatest soundtracks in years. Filled with memorable and suitable tracks that in my opinion are used with the utmost precision.

    But getting back to Chain Bastard. I think that song is awesome. I wish it was used more, as it perfectly suits Kurapika's character. That teetering balance between insanity and sanity that Kurapika walks as his quest for vengeance chains him deeper and deeper into an abyss he has dug himself.

    Fun fact: You can kinda tell which version of the HxH anime someone's seen by how they describe Kurapika in Spider-lingo.

    "Chain Bastard:" HxH 2011 viewers
    "Chain Dude:" The Old School

    Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    I really loved Senritsu's theme playing during the end of ep. 53. I rewatched that moment several times just because of the music placement, animation and direction. Perfect, MH!
    On the other hand, I thought that the Iaido Lunatic was unfitting when they used it in the middle of ep. 51.
    Sometimes they do it perfectly, sometimes they fail imo. If I had to rate their music plasement average, I'd say about 7.5/10.

    About 5 more for YS and about 24 for GI. So, 29?
