I'm not going to judge the new anime till after I watch the first few episodes because to me you can't really judge something till it's actually released imo.
Old/New anime comparison
Found on japanese blog Yaraon. Guess style is a little more different then I thought tho I dont know whats up with the cosplay partLol
the old animation is better i know it already it was perfect for me
new voice actors and plastic animation NNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
The new style is more similar to the manga... More "childish" than the first anime
childish like the manga you jokin?
hunter x hunter is not childish just gon at some moments
so dont mix things up
to make the whole anime more childish is a downfall for this awesome manga if you ask me before it was perfect made the anime
I do like all the styles incorporated in the manga though, but the hardest things for me to accept were the extremely sketchy manga pages depicting the ending of the GI arc.
I don't get the whole "plastic animation" thing. If there's anything wrong based on this promotional poster alone, it would be the colour scheme which I think could be a little better (check Ao no Exorcist for a great colour scheme). Other than that, the art style resembles the one used in the manga a lot. It also looks more contemporary compared to the first anime (which also has a great art style). Madhouse is a big studio, with quite a few different animation teams, some of them fantastic, some of them mediocre. The only animation style of theirs which comes to mind when I think "plastic", is the awful one used in the Iron Man and the Ultraviolet anime series. I think it was also used in the Devil May Cry anime. That animation style was awfully cheap-looking, but I doubt it's the style they'll be using for the new HxH anime. It's hard to tell which style they'll use for this new series, especially considering the fact that it's most likely going to be more than 26 episodes.
this was posted in the madhouse website. can anyone translate it pls? it has to do with the staff
Here's a translation. I'm not sure how accurate it is because I only put it through Google translate.

The new character design for Hisoka looks pretty cool.
