He looks too much like a girl. I'm sure I'm not gay but Kura just looks at me that way.

Because 1999 is objectively superior.

2011 Kurapika blows in comparison to the manga and 1999.
Design wise, his hair style is completely wrong (again), his eyes are the wrong color (again), he has a zombie skin tone, and he's unusually short.
His 2011 VA is also pretty sucky compared to 1999.
I don't think Sawashiro's a terrible voice actor, but she doesn't pull off the character well.
1999 also tweaked his design, but it's not bitched about as often because it's common knowledge that the 1999 staff adored Kurapika. They more than make up for it with their adaptation of the Yorkshin City arc.
Seriously, Nippon animation put a fuckload of love and effort into Kurapika's characterization, and Madhouse messed with it.

I still always recommend the manga first, OP. Manga Kurapika has always been the best version. Togashi is the only one who can draw him right anyway, and you get to see the character as he was originally intended.

I never watched 1999 HxH and I wasn't sure if Kurapika was a girl or not for like 70 episodes of 2011

>>137136841
To be fair, his gender has never actually been stated conclusively. People are just going with he because it's convenient.

You're an idiot. People go with it because he's actually canonically male, and there are enough ambiguously gendered characters in the series to know when one doesn't have a definite gender (eg Pitou).
>>
>>137137052
He does not actually state that he is male in that scene. He only states that he never stated he is female and that Chrollo was wrong to assume.
>>
>>137137089
You need to go back to tumblr. If Chrollo was 'deceived' it means he was mislead ie mistaken, and there's literally no reason to think he's female other than a vaguely girly face on a flat chested, male body.
>>
>>137137052
Oh fuck, I just realized the deeper meaning of this scene.
>>
>>137137482
I'm just saying that you can't base it on that line because it's not definitive - Chrollo was deceived by appearances. Kurapika has never been described with a gendered pronoun throughout the entirety of the manga. There is no reason to conclude he is either gender until it is directly confirmed one way or the other.

Quizzing lady called him a boy in chapter fucking 3, you dumb slut

I'll take an example from the first episodes, I can't be fucked to re-watch them all again.
Episodes 1999 and 2011:
>Introductions.
1999: Kurapika interrupts Leorio, and explains his incentive and back story. He sounds like an earnest, youthful teenager who is MOTIVATED to become a blacklist hunter and avenge his clan.
His voice is higher pitched, but not in a screechy, annoying way. Though it's the perfect type of voice that can effectively get under your skin, especially when giving attitude. He's confident as fuck.
Kaida delivers him perfectly.

2011: Hysterical voice acting. Sawashiro makes him sound like a goddamn sappy, woe is me faggot. Almost as if he were indifferent to the whole situation. There's also irritation in his voice for no reason. 0/10 pls go

And Chrollo called him a girl, doesn't mean either of them are right.

He told Chrollo he was wrong, and not the old woman. By your logic 99% of characters don't have confirmed genders.

>that retard claiming it's sunk cost fallacy

Are anti-HxH shitters brain damaged?
>>
>>137138898
That says bouya, a loanword from Swedish. It means "kid" and is a genderless word.
>>
>>137138969
No, it means boy and uses the kanji 坊 which relates to priests, monks, young master, son (of others) etc.
>>
>>137138938
hxh is mediocare as fuck though

I'll never vote for you, Pariston.
>>
>>137138795
What's this about Leorio being made useless in 2011? What was he like in the manga?
>>
>>137139198
They changed one scene during the Zoldyck family arc where Leorio moves a door on his own. As usual nostalgia fags exaggerating everything.
>>
>>137138916
To be fair, granny wasn't speaking out loud. Though the thug from the kurapika flashback arc does call him a boy to his face, and naturally wasn't challenged on that front.
>>
>>137128179
Botched characterization and design.
