Why is 99 regarded as superior to 2011?
I have first read the manga, then I watched 99 before 2011 came and I was left dissatisfied, and after 2011 came out it was everything I wanted from a Hunter x Hunter anime adaptation. Every time when there is an argument on this topic you faggots just say why 2011 is inferior, instead to why 99 is superior. So tell me why is 99 so better?
Its just /a/ being contrarian.
It obvious to everyone which one is the better adaptation and for /a/ thats just unbearable. I think most people know this but there are a few who have have deluded themselves into thinking otherwise.
Dont give it another thought.
>It obvious to everyone which one is the better adaptation
2011 was actually better. Don't let /a/ ruse you.
2011 lacks something that '99 anime has, effort, honest to goodness effort. The problem with 2011 is that there is nothing good about it on it's own, the only thing about it that is above average is the story, and if you want that then you can just read the manga, and if you do that then you won't have to deal with not having the first chapter. 2011 on it's own is just an average anime with Togashi's writing being the only stand out thing being the writing which if you want that without anything cut out, you can just pick up the manga.
>but the art
Go download the volume scans on Bakabt.
The 99 anime didn't have effort, though. There was filler but there was nothing even close to what the manga had going for it. Gon is hardly even the same character in 99. The only thing I can see being a legit complaint about 11v99 is that the lighting in 99 is pretty cool and 11 has pretty standard lighting throughout.
But that's probably because it made 99 look like fucking Pokemon. 99 isn't good as an anime, and even worse as a Hunter x Hunter anime.
The manga also doesn't scratch the itch that 2011 does with it's character development. A good example would be the Gon / Killua / Kite vs Army of Ants fight in the forest. In the manga, Gon says he's going first. That's that. In 2011, they play rock paper scissors to determine who goes first. It's a super cute moment that adds a lot of love to their characters.
1999 didn't even fucking finish the arc it was on. /a/ has this shitty contrarianism thing down to a science at this point. 2011 is clearly superior in every way. At least 2011 never did this fucking shit.
Easily one of the worst directed "fights" I've ever seen. I'm excited to see some 99fag defend this scene or try to throw any of 2011's fights under the bus because it has speedlines.
This is also implying that 99 does the story better than 2011, which it does not. Not even close. If someone wanted to watch an anime version of HxH, 2011 is easily the best version.
>The 99 anime didn't have effort, though.
That's just wrong and you know it. You literally made this as your opening statement simply for the sake of baiting, I bet you didn't even watch it. Kill yourself.
>The manga also doesn't scratch the itch that 2011 does with it's character development.
Amazing. I get to witness another birth of a shitty meme.
Departure is probably the best opening in the last five years.
>it will never be used again when the story continues eventually
>inb4 some greentexts me for implying the hiatus will end
>not close enough to the manga= no effort
You do realize that what you're saying is bullshit on both accounts? Not ignoring the fact that Togashi was consulted with the'99 anime in which case, you can partially blame the changes on him. 11 had shit direction, especially during it's first arc.
>But that's probably because it made 99 look like fucking Pokemon
Have you ever seen Pokemon before? Because if you did then you'd know that your own words were bullshit. I could also say the same thing about 2011 anime, it's more like a generic shounen anime anything else.
>1999 didn't even fucking finish the arc it was on. /a/ has this shitty contrarianism thing down to a science at this point.
Which actually has nothing to do with the anime, they caught up to the manga, hence why it continued as an OVA. 2011 was simply lucky that the Chimera ant arc was almost finished when it had been made, which again has nothing to do with overall quality.
no effort right?
You mean that Togashi made a good story, because that isn't something that you can actually commend 2011 with. Also if by your own opinion closer to manga = better then neither adaptation is good at all.
99 has more experienced and talented direction, but it's barely HxH. On that note, 11 is also barely HxH even though it's canonically faithful. It's terrible at grasping the mood and presentation of the manga. There were less than 20 really good episodes.
They just had to assign the director of Neuro to my favorite series. Good for them though I guess, all the retards seem to love it.
I liked it when the 2011 anime had these shaded images or whatever they are
I'm not really praising his writing. I'm just saying that '11fags at the end of day can only praise '11 for it's story and nothing else, because there is nothing else to praise about it.
>bumping the bump in the bump bah bump bah bump
>raming the rama lama ding dong
highly subjective, I didn't like it and didn't think it fit. Also it's music direction was shit, they fucking playing upbeat music during what was supposed to be tense scenes.
Because stills are great animation right?
> beautiful art direction, and faithfulness to the manga.
are you being sarcastic also the second one proves my point.
Are you being
they took more time fleshing out the hunter exam and even the filler in it felt appropriate. 2011 on the other hand rushed through it as fast as it could so characters have little to no development by the time you get to york new. Even worse is that 2011 has a freaking recap in the middle of the hunter exam.
Pretty much 99 is better for the early parts of the show hunter exam and york new and 2011 is good for greed island.
When it's good it's very good. The OST was a common complaint though, and I don't see what's 'beautiful' about the art when the color schemes and visual atmosphere were so frequently horrific.
>gon vs hisoka
Wow, the hired a good animation director for one episode. Between shitty midi soundtrack and the stock sound effects, it's hard to tell where the effort stops! And I only had to wait 42 episodes! But 2011 is the one with the pacing problem, for some reason?
>more like a generic shounen
Wow, it's almost like Hunter x Hunter is a generic shounen that changes tone after a few volumes. What the hell does generic shounen even mean in this case?
>the color schemes and visual atmosphere were so frequently horrific.
Went and rewatched a bunch of the scenes. They were so bad.
>Gon using scissors for the first time dragged out to the point where there's no impact at all
>Pariston drawn with an evil two bit villain grin when in the manga he gives a calm smile talking about how easy to understand people are
>Gon-san's rising kick on Pitou having shitty sound and visual impact
>Chrollo looking fucking ugly
>Pitou's introduction is terrible, cut in the wrong parts and has shitty animation
There were some good parts like Gon vs Hisoka in the arena, Netero vs Meruem, the dodgeball fight and Morel testing Gon, but I don't understand how even people who have read the manga don't see that the anime has many flaws.
Other way around anon, your example was the one episode. You speak of pacing and yet 2011 is the only one that skipped out of adapting the first chapter, and unlike '99 whose reasoning was that they were too close to the manga, 2011 had no such excuse.
>Wow, it's almost like Hunter x Hunter is a generic shounen that changes tone after a few volumes
But you wouldn't know that with 2011 would you?
Hey boys and girls. It is me, Husk. The boy clown. Here to remind you all that if you like the year 2011, it is time for suicide!
>Netero vs Meruem
>Togashi used a single panel with needles as a metaphor to convey the idea of Meruem finding Netero's pattern
>2011 goes into a 30s long scene of CG needles intruding in the middle of the fight and fucking up the whole pacing in the process
>Meruem bounces around like a basketball
Also, Illumi was drawn with an evil two bit villain grin after Killua started crying in the anime.
People who care more about the cinematography like 99 more.
People who say they care about faithfulness like 11 more even if it left out Kaito.
99 has a more unique, thriller, feeling.
11 more of a generic battle shounen feeling.
I'm not good with words, but a pretty interesting read about how 99 direction is better can be found here: https://twolongfourtwitlonger.wordpress.com/2014/12/21/hxh-99-hxh-2011-btw/
If you're not baiting, but genuinely curios, I advise you read it.
>that repeating 2 frame animation of hisoka running
>those still frames with FUCKING SPEED LINES REEEEEEEEEE
>those fucking sound effects in the zoldyck fight (the animation in its really good if you dont mind getting motion sickness cuz the background animators decided to fucking spin everything which looks fucking ugly)
No yeah 2011 BTFO in only 2 clips.
>You wouldn't know that
What the fuck is this supposed to mean?
I will break the 2000 character limit if I try to list all the bad scenes.
As for the Meruem fight, I think you're being a little harsh. It may not be the best adaptation of a fight in anime history but for once, the shitty director actually understands cues and scene flow. Meruem turning into a pinball was pretty silly but on the other hand it also shows that by using the pillars, he was converting his flight path from being hit away into an offensive maneuver. Am I stretching here?
Anyway you should look at Pariston's grin, it was way worse and basically ruined his character.
The problem with 2011's coloring is that in the beginning all of the characters are rendered in bright neon-ish colors, but then the coloring gradually devolves into this bland, washed out shit. It's not even consistent. Not to mention there is an INSANE amount of forgettable shots in 2011, it's fucking criminal. It's honestly ridiculous how the massive amount of poor shots completely outweighs the small handful of good shots (the same ones that people use to defend the 2011 direction).
1999 may have fucked up with the filler, but I can still appreciate it so much more because of how great the visual direction is.
I honestly believe Yorkshin was the lowest point of the 2011 adaptation.
Wow, I used to be the only one who would complain about the 2011 anime's shitty direction while it was airing. If I was really lucky, one other person would support my arguments. There are at least 3 now. I can finally rest in peace.
Marry me, I thought I was the only person who saw how visually atrocious York Shin was in the 2011 adaptation. I thought I was watching HxH turn into a learning experience for shitty art interns. I'm sad one of the biggest series in Japan didn't receive better.
You have no idea what you're talking about, Togashi's pretty bad at world building. What he excels at is impactful and dynamic storytelling, character interactions, creative fights, and paneling.
There has been people that hated the direction from day one, it's just that there were drowned out by people claiming that the direction didn't matter.
It's because it is big why it didn't receive better, because Madhouse knew that they would make money regardless.
It's really upsetting such a critically acclaimed arc like Yorkshin was handled so poorly by Madhouse, it's my favorite arc too.
I think 1999 Yorkshin + the OVA's are great though.
1999 director: Furuhashi
2011 director: literally who?
1999 Good animation team: Akira Matsushima, Takayuki Goto, Shinobu Tagashira, Norio Matsumoto
2011 Good animation team: Literally who?
That pretty much sums it up.
I mean come on, there was much more reason to reanimate the series with just the 99 anime than there is with the 11 anime. With two adaptations, with one being 148 episodes long, what studio is ever going to remake the whole thing? The best we'll get is a continuation.
99 has shitty sound, filler and bad pacing. Horrendous tone and inconsistent characterization.
2011 has average visual direction, fantastic OST, great pacing and faithfully adapts the story. It's not even a question of which is better.
>fantastic OST, great pacing and faithfully adapts the story
>2011 Good animation team: Literally who?
Tomoko Mori, Hidehiko Sawada, Kazuto Nakazawa, Yoshihiro Kanno, Takahiro Abiru.
Why does everyone only mention this but never actually says anything about OST placement? It doesn't matter if the songs are good if they are more often than not badly used.
Let me give you a typical tracklist of any episode
>Kingdom of Predators
>Legend of The Martial Artist
>faithfully adapts the story
My favorite meme
It had some good orchestral tracks and your averege shonen "hard rock" boring songs.
Also the "director" pressed shuffle in every episode achieving a wonderfull music fuck up.
CA's pacing was even worse than the manga which is by it self shit.
Truth if we are talking about sound effects. Voice acting and music is excellent.
Since when this was a bad thing?
check your eyes.
You can leave now.
Stop posting that 2011 shell of a character.
God this argument gets so fucking old.
>Hurr Durr muh 11 anime
>Hurr Durr muh 99 anime
This is almost as bad as /sp with
>Hurr Durr muh 80-90s NBA handcheck gg
>Hurr Durr NBA now much more skilled
Its an argument on generation people that saw 99 first are going to defend it as a way better adaptation, people that saw the 11 first are going to defend theirs as a better adaptation. Everyone saying the 99 adaptation is that older uncle in your family gatherings that goes "back in my day" and the people that love the 11 adaption are the 12 year olds looking at said uncle with "wtf" going through there heads. Just stfu about which is better be glad that it got two adaptations which is a hell lot more than 80% of other anime in general.
>A good example would be the Gon / Killua / Kite vs Army of Ants fight in the forest. In the manga, Gon says he's going first. That's that. In 2011, they play rock paper scissors to determine who goes first.
That's what you get for speedreading to level up your MAL level. They're literally doing it in the last panel.
I like how 11fags can only communicate by being aggressive and are unable to provide valid, logical reasons behind their choice. I don't even like 99 that much but just fuck off, you braindead new age Crunchyroll faggots. Go watch Tokyo Ghoul or something.
>I like how 11fags can only communicate by being aggressive and are unable to provide valid, logical reasons behind their choice.
>asshurt 99fag spills
>muh kaito in ep 1
>muh mutafucka yorkshin
If you actually think the tone is bad in 1999 you most likely have brain damage.
>get your memetastic filler shit out of here
I wasn't even talking about the filler you stupid fuck. Are you genuinely retarded?
>there are still people who try to claim 2011 is faithful to the manga after episode 76
>If you actually think the tone is bad in 1999 you most likely have brain damage.
>fun adventure is changed to dark melodrama for the sake of being edgy
>I should feel happy about it
99fags are narutards I swear
Stay mad you butthurt 99fag; if you want to know why 2011 is popular just reads the dozens upon dozens of critical analysis on the internet.
the OST is fucking garbage in 2011, there is no atmosphere.
Also, fucking BRIGHT COLORS High contrast cancer.
Not to mention shit-tier voice-acting.
Censorship and trash pacing, skipping through the early events way too quickly and dedicating no time to introducing and setting up characters properly.
2011 is a dumpster by comparison
You really trolled me good man. Liking 99 or the manga is just a 'meme' right? 11 must be the best anime ever made. No one can give civil arguments why it's a shitty anime even though there are plenty in this thread, right?
I'm a 99fag and I love Naruto, fuck off.
spilling opinions without proofs and examples isn't a valid argument
99fag argumentation is basically post the 10 stills of the anime that they kept jerking off to for 15 years
I know why it's popular. You can circlejerk about it with your equally stupid buddies though, enjoy never being able to understand competent direction and why people smarter than you criticize the 11 adaptation. This isn't about the 99 anime.
It makes me glad that you're dumb and that you'll never be happy in life because of it.
Is anon who made 1999 frame stitches from EncoderAnon rip here? Can you post some more please? They look great.
Kaito wasn't added in the first episode of 2011 because the staff wasn't sure if the chimera ant arc would be animated or not due the terrible schedule of the manga they considered to end the anime in greed island, so kite would never be showed in the anime
the final decision about animating the chimera ants arc was made around the Phantom Troupe movie where they teased kaito
Just because kaito shows in the first chapter of the manga doesn't mean he needs to be in self contained adaptation where he could never show again
CA didn't exist back when the 99 anime started but they still put Kite in it because he's an important character.
Also you're looking over the fact that they changed his role in the story and greatly downplayed his relationship with Gon for some reason, with all the stupid filler when he's "introduced".
>He is still the same part of Gon's character
And that's how you catch a retarded 2011fag.
>post someone that says the anime of hxh without saying that hxh is good
are you retarded?
>millennials who think they're anime fans because they've watched 5 whole series
>2011 is a masterpiece because it's better than Naruto and Bleach
How many of these people know anything the manga? How many acclaimed works has the 11 director been in charge of? I don't know if you think you're being an epic troll but no one who knows what they're talking about is gonna be convinced otherwise by your shitposting. Enjoy your mediocre adaptations though, being stupid must be nice.
Why are you arguing with people who are genuinely retarded or trying to provoke reactions out of you? 11's quality is obviously all over the place, just ignore them.
Go on and reply to me that I'm only saying this because I know you're right or something, how hilarious.
Get your shitty memefiller out of here, 2011fags.
>Enjoy your mediocre adaptations though, being stupid must be nice.
You must have narcissitic personality disorder to believe a series as critically acclaimed as HxH2011 is all from "stupid people", even when some of them are published authors. Seek some counseling.
>Departure is probably the best opening in the last five years
Oh I know it's just what these fags are all arguing about is not addressed in that review
the ost is not talked about, the filler/changes, the coloring and lighting etc thats all the 99 fags care about
Okay, some liberal arts faggot wrote an essay elaborating on themes that were presented in plain view. What does that have to do with the adaptation anyway? He's just praising Togashi's writing.
i don't understand how people didn't understand gons transformation
It's from people who are stupid, people who haven't read the manga, people who have very little experience with the medium, or people who connect to specific tangential elements in the 11 anime on a personal or pathological level. There is nothing, aside from VERY FEW INSTANCES, that the anime does better than the manga.
If I'd never experienced the manga, I'd probably think this shitty adaptation was good. By the way, my cousin is an author and he's not very smart. Stop making points that mean nothing, you fucking moron. You can like your terrible anime in peace, isolated from sensible people.
I wasn't shitting on the manga, I've never even read the manga. I've seen both 99 and 11 though, and I enjoyed 99 more. I don't even see how the manga is relevant to the discussion.
People don't argue whether Oh Brother, Where At Thou? is a closer adaptation than the 1997 The Oddesey, they just accept that it's a better movie.
Adaptations just rape the source material unless the original creator is involved with the adaptation. Accuracy is irrelevant to quality.
Are you not reading what I'm saying? Anime critics, people who watch and review anime for a living, consider 2011 one of the medium's greats. In comparison you're a nostalgiafag jerking off his own intellect because he likes a shitty, incomplete, fillerfest adaptation.
>There is nothing, aside from VERY FEW INSTANCES, that the anime does better than the manga.
What's your point? The 2011 anime is a fine alternative to experience the story in animated form.
>2011 yorkshin over 1999 Yorkshin
Oh man that's hilarious. Kill yourself.
I know that there are 99fags, manga fags and 2011 fags, but there aren't any 2003 ova fags?
>mfw 99 fag will keep jerking off to their low quality skills because their anime is never getting a remaster
>tfw 99 fags will always be mad that 2011 is more popular and more acclaimed
Are you fucking blind? I'm not arguing that the 99 anime is better, I'm arguing that the 11 anime is not good -- and by extension that the manga is better. You're not reading a single thing I'm saying. I asserted that the opinions of these 'critics' are invalid 1) because they likely have no knowledge of the manga and 2) canonical faithfulness is not the only quality of a good adaptation, and you have nothing to offer in return.
Also, why can't you voice your own opinions about this matter instead of citing people who you think will win the argument for you? I thought you were trolling me but you're actually dumb. Stop wasting my time and fuck off.
Hunter Exam: 1999 > manga > 2011
Zoldyck Family: manga > 1999 > 2011
Heavens Arena: manga > 1999 = 2011
Yorkshin City: 1999 > manga > 2011
Greed Island: manga > 2011 > 1999
Chimera Ant: manga > 2011 except for episodes 116, 130, 131. The Gon-Pitou conflict was the only thing which Madhouse improved.
Chairman Election: manga > 2011, atmosphere of the arc was completely ruined.
And I'm arguing that '11 is good, and its critical acclaim reflects this. Canonical faithfulness aside, the show’s fantastic aesthetics elevate it above almost everything out there - in direction, in sound design, in pacing, in animation, in basically every relevant aesthetic metric, 2011 excels.
>the show’s fantastic aesthetics elevate it above almost everything out there - in direction, in sound design, in pacing, in animation, in basically every relevant aesthetic metric
How much are you getting paid to say this?
Hunter Exam: manga > 2011 >>>>> 1999

Heavens Arena: manga = 1999 = 2011
Yorkshin: manga > 1999 > 2011
Greed Island: manga > 2011 >>>>>> 1999
Chimera Ant (NGL): ,anga > 2011
Chimera Ant (Palace Invasion): 2011 > manga
Chairman Election: manga = 2011
Please praise this generic shot more.
And I'll just argue back that its merits are unearned, merely borrowed from Togashi's creation. In fact, it mars and rapes the original by butchering the atmosphere and presentation of key scenes. I'll name as many as I can if you really want me to but I'm tired and I'd rather not. It is undeniable that the director is a nobody, and the works he's staffed before have been flops. Did his muse finally come to him? I doubt it. On the other hand, Togashi is an acclaimed veteran of the industry. This isn't even a fair comparison.
You can think what you want but based on the reasons I've given, it's only logical to think what I do. You can tell me its aesthetics are unmatched just like I'll say I disagree. By the way, you should toss the idea that someone's opinions are lesser and groundless because they're not writers for ANN.
Non existant except for a couple of episodes and shots every 30 episodes. Rest is just copy-pasting panels.
What? That probably was the worst thing about the series. They didn't know how to use the soundtrack (notable Hashire! )and it felt almost random at times.
Are you serious? Just look at the CA arc. Granted, it's a really hard one to adapt into an anime properly, but it's still really bad.
Terrible. There are a handful of episodes in total where the animation stands out.
It's not even faithful to the manga, there are a lot of details that are changed, without mentionning the obvious one. They also added a scene with about 50 million death flags for Kite in the first half of episode 85 for some reason, it really was stupid.
As long as you're aware that the 2011 adaptation isn't always canonically faithful to the manga, I don't care.
>Chimera Ant (Palace Invasion): 2011 > manga
Are you fucking serious? That's probably the thing they butchered the most out of everything.
We do, but while posting we use our autistic cover up.
it is faithful tho
I can't understand 99 fags, if you change something (like they did alot and praise themselves for it) it's bad
if you don't change anything is "non existant direction" (>>134586249)
I stand for my statement that 99fags are narutards and bleachfags
95% of what's good about the 11 anime is good because the manga is good. The 5% are rare, decent moments scattered sporadically throughout. The voice acting was pretty good, but art and animation were all over the place. How did they manage to make Nen look so terrible?
It doesn't work for any of its merits with good direction and intelligent handling, it just lets the manga's writing carry it on its back. Of course it borrows -- does it generate anything of its own? Stop missing the point you stupid fucking idiot. Are you a woman or a pseudointellectual college student?
If you use creative shots and take advantage of the medium (like 99 most of the time) then it's good. If you color manga panels, barely animate them and call it directing then it's shit (the vast majority of 2011). If you add filler and inconsistent characterization (this applies to both 99 and 2011) then it's bad.
It's not that difficult to grasp, is it?
Because there's more to direction that just cutting out characters and pasting them onto big backgrounds, anon. And that's literally how it is for the majority of the 2011 anime.
>I stand for my statement that 99fags are narutards and bleachfags
This is why no one takes 2011fags seriously.
>why is 1999 better???
because they did not draw boobs on a Man
I love 1999 but this is just bait.
Am I the only one here who sexualizes Kurapika?
Fuck off retard.
I'm sorry, did I upset you with my opinion?
Of course not, but be quieter.
Oh it's just a butthurt killuafag. Enjoy not seeing your shitty husbando in the manga for the next decade.
The 2011 sound direction is fucking horrible
Only 14 issues left until longest hiatus ever
You can do it Togashi
I don't understand why Madhouse hate Kurapika and Leorio so much.
i've never seen hunter x hunter before
what the fuck is going on in here. can someone explain and tell me whether or not hunter x hunter is actually a good show or worth watching or just alright
99: Gon felt victimized and losing his shit in dramatized fashion after being punch by Hisoka.
Manga/2011: Gon sulked in silent for his bruised ego, a much more dignified character.
99: Gon won't lie and cheat (didn't steal Ponzu's badge, thus omitted his /sneaky nature)
Manga/2011: Gon displayed his bargaining skills and sneaky nature by stealing Ponzu's badge.
The latter characterization is one that'd impressed Killua and other people who met Gon and get awestruck by his lack of morality but charismatic nature.
They're too good for Madhouse, anon.
Why does me being a killuafag bother you so much? Does it change my opinion? It's just an opinion.
Read the manga, just make sure to download the tanks. If you want an experience similar to the 2011 anime, also download the OST and play it on random while you are reading the manga.
99 = bad anime, bad adaptation
2011 = great anime, great adaptation
manga = good but poorly drawn (see pic)
He understood that traitors were present in the association, besides surely he got a lot of experience to be smarter when he was retrieving the eyes.
>he pretty much has a lie detector.
It's not omniscient though.
>and being emotional as fuck?
Are you implying Killua hasn't been emotional as fuck in this series?
Kurapika's the only main character we haven't seen cry yet, by the way.
killua was tortured for most of his fucking childhood in ways that would have killed normal kids instantly yet you don't see him overcome with rage and getting triggered so much that you have to wear eye contacts
>Are you saying Killua's had it easy? Are you blind?
When did I say he had it easy? That other anon is just taking light of what Kurapika's dealt with.
Kurapika has earned the right to be angry, retard. The fact that are you are so completely biased to easily defend your husbando, but show no sympathy for another main character who's had literally every person he loved and cared for taken away from him is absolutely disgusting. This is why Killuafags are cancer.
Pain is my own personal point of reference for why Meruem's character development was well executed, because it didn't revolve around jerking off the glorious, morally superior mc and his talk no jutsu. That shit is so obnoxious.
>one retard posts "would you sexualize kurapika" once every few threads
>j-just as cancer as killuafags amirite
Fuck off with your delusion, you just want other fags to go down with you.
I don't think the amount of books you read as a kid determines how you handle situations in the real world. Kurapika is both book smart and street smart, no question about it. Especially since he's made close connections with the mafia, underground networks, etc
We haven't seen enough of Pika in battle, so it's not fair to say. Hopefully DC changes things. Also
>implying Killua could work out a hostage exchange between the Hunter world's most sought out criminals without leaving any bloodshed
"hxh2011 was afucking mistake,that's why i left madhouse and founded my own studio known as MAPPA, to produce to you great anime such as ; Kind on the slop,Rage of bahamut...and more.all this to finish Satoshi Kon's Dreaming Machine" - Masao Maruyama
>Kurapika's the only main character we haven't seen cry yet, by the way.
This scene btfos everything in 2011
>Why is 99 regarded as superior to 2011?
Hipster attitude. This is pretty standard when you're on 4chan.
1999 trick tower has MUCH better music, music placement, atmosphere, and animation. 2011 is a downgrade, this isn't even a contest.
I want to love Quwrof.

Keep patting yourself on the back champ
I will thanks.
What in the hell was this about? Is it ever explained? So much time was dedicated to that flashback and it was done in such a special style.
Best character in the show?
Best character in the show.
Your "opinion" doesn't mean shit. Get lost faggot.
Some weeaboos cant handle that a newer version of a show is better. I mean look at 99 art, BLEH!
If you're still here thanks for this upload Encoder Anon.
well usually when presenting the story like this you pay off the setup of this character the episode after or at least during this particular arc. Throwing in a giant backstory section in the middle of nowhere and then don't mention it again isn't exactly great storytelling.
>I have been throughly BTFO and have nothing to come back with. Excuse me while I run away with my tail between my legs and pretend to be nonchalant about this whole situation.
Because badhouse's team was filled with dumb killuafag frogposters who had no appreciation for his character. He deserved better.
How many of the people who prefer 99 watched it before they watched 2011, or watched it on, or close to when it came out? I'm not picking a side here, especially since I've yet to watch 99, but it seems like a lot of the love towards 99 might be due to nostalgia and loyalty towards it because of said nostalgia.
Whoever did the digital coloring messed up on that one shot but it's honestly not that big of a deal when you see the work behind it.
I haven't even finished watched the 2011 version yet. I don't like the coloring.
Nope Alluka is transgendered (or whatever the mental illness is called). The Zoldyks call him a boy and don't respect how he feels and notice how Killiua uses female prounouns for him, because he respects how Alluka feels.
I see. Sometimes the bright colors and over the top characters makes me underestimate how subtle the show can be at times. I struggle with the mood and tone of the show intermixed with the hyper violence, it's a bit unsettling to me.
That was a great first episode.
Thank you based Encoder Anon.
The manga and 99 style feel more appropriate for the tone of the series, though I have to admit I liked the brightness of the 2011 anime in contrast with the content. I know that's a complaint a lot of people have, but I enjoyed being surprised.
