    Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    Hey guys, here is a very interesting read on this episode from an anime only viewer. I think you will be surprised by how much he got out of this episode:

    Togashi is truly an unbelievably fascinating man.

    Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    It was definitely a good episode to me, after watching it again though I think the score of 7.5/10 still stands for me, not utterly exciting but fascinating stuff. I think the biggest crimes against this adaptation of chapters has been mentioned, by simply brushing aside Gon's license pawning, it left some viewers completely confused. The Hunter Exam sort of makes the license seem very important, and its only now that we slowly start to realize the license card isn't that important to being a Hunter (outside of the conveniences it provides), so the scene of Gon selling his hard earned license should have had more weight in this adaptation.

    The other misstep was definitely how they handled the bald guy, on one hand, Zepile comes off like a badass and interesting character because he stands up to him. Where as in the manga, I felt that Gon had to sort of bail him out of this public humiliation and we are left thinking Zepile is a likable guy amidst a huge world of appraisers where anything can happen. Not having the traders market scene as the backdrop to Baldy vs Zepile takes away from the excitement to me, the idea that they may be in over there heads, in the 2011 anime it feels like the bald guy is just some jerk who felt the need to info dump various techniques to Gon and Killua. Nothing felt at stake I guess in that scene. In the end Zepile still comes off as awesome, and the appraisers world still is fascinating even if you don't get a real sense of how crazy it gets without the auction scene. I was looking forward to seeing that scene done up in gorgeous madhouse animation, but I suppose at this point its a moot issue. Nippon cut several scenes from the later auction bits, where Leorio and Zepile talk about things and he gets back Gon's license, so I look forward to getting those scenes in the Madhouse adaptation, that would make up for my gripes in the newest episode honestly.

    Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    Yeah I read it too. I wasn't really surprised since the reviewer there had been saying before that they looked forward to Gon and Killua and Leorio's story
    while the Kurapika stuff was going on. I'm not surprised that some new viewers liked the episode. How would they know what they are missing?
    But i am happy that some were able to enjoy the episode. I just didn't. At least not as much as if all or more of the stuff was included.

    It would be interesting to see someone watch the episode and THEN read the manga.

    Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    It's been a while since I read this part in the manga so I didn’t realise they had made most of the changes to start with. It’s a shame to see them rush through this part though, I really enjoyed it in the manga because it gives you a nice breather from all the Phantom Troupe stuff whilst also being fun and clever.

    I read Guardian Enzo's blog for Eureka Seven, so I ended up reading his HXH reviews too. I really like that he doesn't let 1999 fans or manga fans dissuade his enjoyment of the 2011 remake. It's definitely a different view from us who have read the manga or seen the first series. I love that he has that sense of wonder and curiosity that we all probably had when we first picked up the manga or watched the 1999 series. I wish I could recreate those feelings, but you really do only live once.

    Luckily even though he is as curious and full of wonder as Gon, he's not nearly as....dangerous. lol.

    Despite my disappointments with this episode, I wouldn't fault MH completely if we get viewers who give these kinds of reviews. I mean sure, they could have done things differently. But at least a lot of the anime-only watchers seem to enjoy this episode with what they did do, so MH did alright. It's really inevitable that most of the disappointment would come from manga readers.

    And yeah, they can always check the manga if they're feeling lost or anything. The more people drawn to the manga, the better!

    Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    What I did like about this episode---

    The back and forth questioning and Zepile's analysis of Gon.
    These felt like the two parts that Madhouse actually took some time with
    and I think they are what kept the episode from getting a much lower score.

    While we didn't really get to dive into the world of auctions and all that jazz as the manga does
    we did get a bit more info on just who Gon is and what his character is about.
    For that I'll give Madhouse props. But still it's not enough to call this a good episode.
    Decent episode but not a good episode. I hereby rate it as

    ...Well I won't lie I AM looking forward to next week's episode

    Re: HxH MadHouse Anime Discussion! Part 2

    It was... okay. I'm not going to rip on MH too much for cutting it short this time around. Yeah, it felt rushed to me. Yeah, I wasn't impressed. It felt a little choppy to me how they did the scene in the trade market/pawn shop where Zepile debated with that guy. I mean, they were still able to get into the more important parts of the episode. My biggest gripe is that they rushed the exposition when it came to explaining the bluffs. I felt they were more thorough with that in the manga.

    I did like how they portrayed Zepile and the entirety of the lunch scene, though.

    I'll give it a 7/10.

    You know we are getting awfully close to where the 1999 Television series ended. It ended on episode 62 in the middle of Volume 11. We're halfway into ten.

    Soon we'll be in OVA territory.

    I heard on another forum that there were Japanese Holidays for episodes 46/47 but I can't confirm, Is that true?

    Yeah, hopefully when we reach Greed Island the comparisons will stop.

    I've come to get tired of this war between Nippon and Madhouse fans.
