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?

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.
>>
>>134579826
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.

https://youtu.be/DHvKrOiezSs?t=62

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.
>>
>>134579826
>>134580068
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.

One of the two has Departure. The other adaption is clearly the lesser of the two.

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.


>Also

>>134580223
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.
>>
>>134580412
btw I've only watched one anime in the last five years

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.

The 99 version had atmosphere. I watched one ep of the 11 version and i hated the chirpy, up beat soundtrack and bright colours.

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.

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?

>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.

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/

>>134581282
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.
>>
>>134580606
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.

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.

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.

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.

>>134584084
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.

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.

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.

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.

Why can't you all just fucking enjoy both? It's the same fucking series.
>>
>>134585884
>direction
Non existant except for a couple of episodes and shots every 30 episodes. Rest is just copy-pasting panels.
>sound design
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.
>pacing
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.
>animation
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.

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?
>>
>>134586370
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.

>Lie
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.

Kurapika has earned the right to be angry, retard.

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.

99 had a feeling of boyhood adventure

11 was a product of today's time where anime is about making things cute and colorful
>>
In the subtitles I watched it with, Alluka was sometimes referred to as "him". Is that an error or is there something to this?

>>
>>134598149
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.

Because badhouse's team was filled with dumb killuafag frogposters who had no appreciation for his character. He deserved better.
>>
>>134600819
HxH isn't a finished story though.
Also if you had read the manga you'd know it's stated that Gon will meet him somewhere down the line.

Can't wait for the 2025 anime where they add the next two arcs done by that point.

Damn, that shitposting webm took a lot of effort.

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.

It was literally significant to the theme of the arc. Pay attention next time and read the manga as well.

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.

>>134613687
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.

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.
