I did say, in my opinion. I liked the addition of Anita because it was nice to see someone affected by the actions of Killua and his family. It humanized it a bit for me, which is why I personally enjoyed the addition. As for emo Killua, I didn't really find him to be all that emo to begin with. Moody at times or down in the 1999 anime at times (like all of our main characters), but not completly "emo". Besides, seems that was dropped really fast, unless my memory is failing me, or either it was so underplayed that it didn't leave a big impression on me. He has issues trying to resist his natural instinct to kill. This is something that I wish the manga would've touched up on, because it was interesting to me and would've added even more depth to Killua's already, in my opinion, deep character, given his upbringing... I liked the idea of his trying to fight the urge to kill if he could help it.
I also found that more interesting than Netero's game...then again, I was never a big fan of Netero to begin with, so maybe it's bias on my part. :-P
What about an AU (alternate universe) spinoff series? I know I put One Piece out there a lot, but they had a few episodes dedicated to stuff like Oyabun Luffy. I wouldn't mind something like that after HxH 2011 ends just for the laughs. Then the writers wouldn't have to worry about things like mucking up the storyline. They wouldn't have to contact Togashi all the time either.
Last time we got MADHOUSE writing a story by themselves (that i remember) we got Claymore's ending. No gracias. When they do add-ons that's fine, but stories completely made up by them? ehhhhh

As others have mentioned, I think MH will stop on ch339 (if they get that far). But if HxH 2011 proved to be popular and the higher ups wanted it to continue, fillers galore OR make a deal with Togashi to just continue HxH via anime. Either way, it all boils down to what the executives wanted to do with it. Those who have the money have the say after all.
the only filler ive seen so far are the two recap episodes
some people consider recap episodes filler and some dont, to me i just watch them anyway
we have seen that mad house started with fillers already in the c.a
Eh we'll see as the arc progresses but I don't think they're trying to slow the pace down completely. On episode 52 they had "filler" for half of the episode because Silva/Zeno vs Chrollo couldn't be 30 minutes without dragging. I think this is the case again, they're doing the things they are for pacing purposes so the scenes can play out naturally in an anime format that couldn't be achieved had they just copy/pasted manga panels. Madhouse has my faith in knowing how to adapt a story into a different medium. The audience needs time to get to know Kite before shit really hits the fan and the impact of events to come to hit the viewer as hard as it does. I was expecting 2 episodes* before the Ants set events in motion similar to how it took 2 eps for Gon/Killua to get into Greed Island.
*Based on the Episode 78 Title Rapid X Breeding that seems the case
If they're already releasing promotional material for Morel, Knov, Knuckle, and Palm that means we're going to be seeing them in the near future. It's not like they're showing Bizef the Secretary or Ikalgo yet
who says that hxh anime isnt popular last i checked it was like the top 8 or 9 coine above toriko , which is also watched by many people (idk why but it has more anime fans than the manga fans)
