Well, this series USES already a narrator, so it wont be that difficult.
And simultaneously is easier to do in anime than manga, so it will work fine.
are you kidding? the first few chapters of the palace invasion had almost zero speech bubbles- it was massive eyecandy that could very well translate to animation since it was perfectly timed, panel after panel.
I think it could get animated well, narrator or not. I think the narration during that scene is something exclusive to the manga, and I speculate that the anime will just run through it without the narration. This is pure speculation, but considering the time slot the series is in, and the viewership, it will be easier to understand the concepts if they go through it without the extensive narration. I'd be fine with or without the narration. And I think they could pull the narration off if they do decide to do it that way.
Sometimes I feel I may have too much faith in Madhouse's ability to pull of this adaptation.
And I actually can't wait for this version's Greed Island (I wasn't that impressed with the animation in the Greed Island OVAs). Sure, I'm still excited about Yorknew and everything, but I'd say I'm most excited about the Ant Arc.
I'm glad MH is adapting HxH, they pretty much are following the manga...From panel to presentation of the story.....Toriko is probably one of the saddest adaptations I've seen. They dumbed it down big time...So yeah i'm glad we have an anime adaptation thats actually accurate compared to the manga. Toriko's anime is not even close to how the manga had it...=
I will cry foul if they skip Greed Island (which I seriously doubt they would).
Plus I think after Yorknew we're going to need a breather. Going straight
into the Chimera Ant arc might be TOO intense and overwhelming.
Plus it would absolutely ruin Gon's characterization skipping Greed Island.
As for the Chimera Ant arc. I hope they leave in the narration.
However it will very likely be condensed but it will have the same feeling.
As long as they keep in the really awesome narration quotes I'll be happy
One Yorknew Scene I'm looking forward to...
I'm hoping that we get the Kite flashback before Greed Island arc. Like Gon is thinking that clues to Ging await inside the game and he thinks back to why he began searching for Ging to begin with, Kite. Might be wishful thinking. Madhouse seem to have their own idea for how they want to handle Kite and I'm cool with that, I just hope to see him sooner rather than later.
doing the kite thing is the only assurance that we will get there (Chimera Ant Arc) , so I wish they made that in GI arc the chapter 01 flashback off course....
Well in regards to the Kite flashback there is an important part of the flashback that heavily relates to the Chimera Ants arc. Kite saves Gon from death by a creature much more powerful than him. In Chimera Ant arc, Kite dies to save Gon from a creature much more powerful than him. Interesting parrallel that I think Madhouse will want to emphasise as it's important to Gon's characterisation. He has always been weak and because of his weakness, people around him keep dying. As a kid, the Fox Bear died because of him, and now as a Hunter, Kite died because of him. It's something I think Madhouse will want to emphasise. Also the whole motto of Kite's 'All good hunters are loved by animals' heavily relates to this arc. Thoughts?
Changing the topic a bit, now that we know that togashi isn't involved with the movie-making, what is the prediction of the manga's return?
I know that he took longer hiatuses in the past, but its sad to have to wait so much to the story progression.
Ps: I know I shouldnt ask but I couldn't help myself xD

I'm expecting the hiatus to end in either November or December.
