Some things you all might wanna know about the new anime:
-Kaito won't be appearing early on
-Hisoka won;t be perverted but instead be a "brave man" (not too sure what that means)
-Less violence (kinda obvious)
-Togashi himself will be supervising the anime
Well I;m not too surprised about hearing that the violence level will be lowered though hopefully not to the extent of Toriko. Hisoka being changed a bit is a bit disappointing, but Hisoka being well...Hisoka, I don;t know how well he;d have flown on a daytime timeslot for kids. Kaito not appearing early is fairly forgiving since he;s not all that important early on. I will assume that the flashback with him in the first chapter will be kept in though.
Since Togashi is supervising the thing I think most of these changes won;t end terribly, though I guess we'll see how it goes(I probably won;t notice too many of the changes since my memory of the beginning of the manga is somewhat vague). At least it means this might actually have a legit ending.
I hope at least all the super intelligent analysis and explaination stuff will be kept.
Thats the overall main difference between Hunter X Hunter and otrher Anime Series.
Hisoka "brave man" what? I don't even know what "brave man" supposed to mean! but anyways I'm glad to hear Togashi is supervising the anime.
Since Togashi himself is overseeing it hopefully these changes won;t be too impactful(I doubt he'd let Hisoka's personally be changed completely). At least they have a good shonen scriptwriter on board. I don;t think anyone was really expecting it to be a 100% complete modern remake of the first anime. I just hope the violence isn't TOO toned down. DBZ Kai level violence would be pretty okay. I don't think HxH would end up as censored as Toriko(albeit that series had it;s obvious reasons for being censored).
I do wonder who they'll be getting for the music though. I never watched the first series so I don;t know what kind of music it had, but going from the manga, it doesn;t strike me as something that would have a lot of orchestral music.
On a side note it seems companies over in the states are already bidding for the new anime. Guess their trying to run the popular shonen train.
This is great news. I look forwards to watching the anime again. I kinda forgot how the series went. Anyone have a link of a site where they stream the series for free?
On a related note:
I will also miss the perverted Hisoka. He is one of the few who fights only because it makes him happy. It will be hard not to compare the old series to this new one but i will keep an open mind. Especially since Togashi is supervising the making (not sure of that really means anything).
If this gets bought in the US it will be even more censored. The would probably cut it up before airing it. Hypocritical, since everything on TV now a days have sex and violence hiding behind an M rating. Like that has ever stopped anyone from watching it.
Is Kurapika male or female? I always thought she was a girl because of her feminine qualities.

He is male.Quote:
Hisoka not being a perv?! That's his main trait, I'd rather want him to stay the same since there is another way to 'avoid' his perverted behavior.
Somehow I have mixed feelings about this but luckily Togashi will supervise it IIRC he did it with the original series too. So one can still hope.
I think the new Anime will be great.
MADHOUSE is in my eyes the best studio ever(Hajime no ippo,Kaiji,......).
I think its better to make the new series more like the manga.
And last of all the Character design looks very cool.
Particularly Leorio :
I'm very excited.
