There's a reason Hisoka's one of my favorite characters. I also wish they showed the heart at the end of his sentence like in the manga.
I mean, what else can I say? The animation was awesome, as always. The OST has had it's ups and downs in the past (IMO), but they're doing a pretty good job of it for GI. Madhouse is showing that they can handle a long running shounen series (I consider this long running) without dips in quality.
The GI tutorial made me laugh. The writers are trying to confuse us.
Just glad I actually waited to have all the HD versions of the dodgeball-epis to watch it in one run. Game was fun as heck
I'm just loving what they did to one of my favorites arcs of the manga so far. Let's see how they handle the Attack of the Three chapters now ^^
After watching that episodes I instantly headed to this thread thinking "Oh I know these guys, they will go mad over this episode! Better join them!"
And then all I get is some good or awesome.... I expected more
HOLY CRAP IT WAS FREAKING FU**** ULTRA AWESOME, WTF!
Shame I can't find a gif of Gon's Janken yet but man, forget about Rasengan. Forget about Getsuga Tenshou. Forget about Jet Pistol. Imagine THAT FIST in your face... you're a goner
I have to hand it to Madhouse, first time I watched that scene I had a big grin all over my face for the whole time. The music, the animation. Epic. I rewatched the scene countless of times by now and every time I fangasmed
Okay, gonna calm down now.... I don't even want to imagine how awesome the fight against Genthru will be and afterwards
the 3rd Janken looked the best, animation-wise.
From 0:25 - 0:46
oh god, I love it
LOL, everyone said what had to be said that I don't know......what to say.
This anime and this manga is so beyond words that it leaves you speechless.
Having said this, I'm looking forward to viewing the next episode.
Lol, I just think the majority of the fans of this adaptation that post here got too used to the awesomeness, to the point of being a 'lil bit senseless to it
But I can assure you that I got roughly the same reactions that you described while watching this episode, even more since I saw whole dodgeball game in one go
My body is ready for all the epicness yet to come
1. It's freaking HxH so Shueisha is putting a ton in knowing the franchise
2. Madhouse is investing a lot in it themselves because they enjoy the source they're working on a lot
Yes the animation is kickass for action but the animation for times of peace are amazing too. Some highlights just for animation(don't even want to get into artwork XD)
1. Gon and Killua eating scenes always seem more fluid than usual
2. Kurapika in the park with his friends
3. Gon and Killua goofing off on Whale Island

Is there any price an anime studio can officially win? I'm really curious about it. Lately all the good works I see are from them. And well, I definitely love with PASSION this series. And I refer to THIS particular version.
Side note, curious thing to read that the third Janken was the best animated. I think MH did it on purpose to show the raw difference between each one of them. I also did what nii-chan and watched it over and over and I even put the other jankens to compare them. The difference is astonishing and it's clear that it's on purpose. You can even say that each one reflects the state of mind of Gon.
Can't wait to see it in real fights. :O

And well, since I haven't done this since long...
GIF-PALLOOZA! All about GON:
This will be out because it's the thing I was mentioning before: Gon's Ren that tilts the camera. Freaking EPIC.
And these faces must be remembered.
I actually want to see some opinions of those who are new to 2011 series.Most of us here ain't new to the series.It would be a nice change.
My favorite part on Greed Island the dodgeball game all I can say is it is freaking epic!!! Almost to the most anticipated arc by the whole world
