Dis episode is de real shit!!
I never thought it was gonna be that violent!!
So can everyone stop doubting Madhouse and saying they need to change timeslots now? haha
Frankly i thought the animation wasn't bad at all. IMO it's not all about animation. The liberties that Madhouse took with the camera angles were executed well. The conversation between Uvo and Chrollo was legit. Being in the guys shoes where Uvo was walking towards you and grabbing your head was a pretty intense seen IMO. The little blurred effect from being hit added to the fun.
I was looking at more towards the execution of the overall story, the animation doesn't bother me that much because frankly IMO animation wasn't the main focus in this ep.
There's plenty of fighting and I could just tell where they were cutting corners, I was confused mostly because the previous two episodes had nicer animation, I was hoping we'd see something more akin to episode 34's animation which to me is a much less memorable moment in HxH (gon and killua vs handicaps compared to Spiders vs Mafia)
Big 3 got released today? Shit ignore it, there's a new HxH episode I never thought I would actually prefer a new HxH ep over Naruto/One Piece but that's just how awesome the show is~
Agreed with all the others here, far more violent than I expected. When they showed that sea of blood I was all "Wow Madhouse you bold bas****, nice job". Ever since Yorknew Arc started I'm craving for the next episodes and this urge only gets stronger each time
besides that lol, Huncyclopedia became a Gon x Killua shipping ground
Awesome episode indeed. As always, the nen-techniques presentation scenes were awesome (though I missed one for Deme-chan; it was one of the best parts of the episode).
Too bad, even with all the violence, they couldn't show Uvogin actually tearing everything to pieces barehanded (it looked more like a spanking; still cool but kind of makes Schuwala note on the subject contradictory).
Also, R.I.P. Veze, Tocchino and Sachmono.
Overall todays episode was awesome....
I just wish they removed the opening song for the mood...
Ok, Madhouse seriously doesn't give a rat's ass about the show's time slot. This is a show that airs on Sunday mornings, usually a family time slot, yet they still show a bloody massacre, a guy getting a bullet shot through his head, a guy's neck breaking as well as his face being disfigured, etc... Madhouse never ceases to amaze with how much crap they can get past the radar. Either parents are ignorant of what their children are watching, or they just don't care (perhaps they even enjoy it!).
And I'm convinced that the Hunterpedia segments at the end of the show were created for the sole sake of slashers. C'mon guys, at least leave something to the imagination
I don't get the all the "animation" talk... It's not REQUIRED at every possible scene somebody is attacking someone else. The stills of Ubo's wicked face neatly put an emphasis in just HOW much he enjoys doing all that. I think all of the still images served a better point than how it would be if it was some lightning-fast beatdown.
This episode was simply totally great, will definitely shut up all the censorship folks... if there's ONE complaint I have, it's a very minor one: in the "bird's eye" shots of "Ubo's Arena", one or 2 guys positioned in such a way that it looked like they missed a head or leg would've been pretty good.
That was so much better than I ever expected this episode to be. 10/10. Uvogin is beastly! His expressions are wild; he acted as though he'd been raised among bears. The voice acting was fantastic as well...such a tribute to classic Shonen. I got Dragon Ball vibes.
"Ha! None of you will escape!"
After watching this episode I can firmly state that I'm ready for the Chimera Ants Arc at 10:55 AM
Yeah... good thing it's not trying to be represented as canon. I'm afraid to go onto tumblr now to look at gifs and whatnot because of all the avid Gon/Killua shippers.Originally Posted by Cinnabar
I didn't have problems with the animation. Sure, it wasn't as fluid as what we've seen before, a little choppy, but it wasn't bad. I mean, it's not like we're getting half-assed drawn people, half-assed drawn backgrounds, or anything like that. I've seen much lazier animation in other anime, and for a long-running series, Madhouse has been doing a good job.
