What does /a/ think is better?http://strawpoll.me/7082288
>>
Never watched HxH. Why is it better?
>>
>>138633985
It has slower pacing, and it's characters arguably aren't as charismatic. But other than that, it's better in every way.
>>
Anime
HxH 99 > YYH >>>> HxH 2011 > Level E

Manga
HxH > Level E >>>>> YYH

>>138634435
Yeah, I pretty much agree with this.

Yu Yu Hakusho has the single best tournament arc ever created. In my opinion, it is better than Hunter x Hunter up till and after the tournament arc is done.

After that, HxH puts it dead in the dirt.

The only thing HxH doesn't do netter than YYH imo is that the main character group lacks the dynamic personalities and charisma of Team Urasmeshi. But really other than that they're YYH cast 2.0 except with more development outside of Leorio. Everything else HxH has over YYH.

HAHAHAHAH.
No.

YYH is a more classic battle shounen, HxH is muh deconstruction.

>>138635600
Gon met his dad and had a long chat.

The goal of the MC's story is finished.

HxH is completed.

You know I agree with you and that's why I think we had the long hiatus amongst other things but it sounds like you've only seen '11. Which will enrage the fanboys persistent of watching fighting scenes in doodles instead of waiting for the anime. So this will turn into another one of those threads because you mentioned how HxH is finished.

Oh look, another animefag with ADHD.

>>138633567
I really liked YYH. Haven't really gotten into HxH yet, but I'm sure I'd enjoy that too.

>>138634435
This is true for me.

>>138633567
Both are best shonen

>>138633567
HxH has higher highs but it's quite slow at times. I considered dropping it at the tournament arc, which was painfully boring and only served to introduce nen.
>>
>>138636016
Not even bruh, Gon also lost his nen in the manga.

Shit is finished Yo.
>>
>>138637476
Have you considered speeding up anime? have you considered you might just be bored of the genre?
>>
>>138637708
Fuck off nigger.

>>138633567
The main characters and their dynamics in YYH are much better.

HxH has it beat in a lot of other ways but I feel like characters are the most important so I prefer YYH.
>>
>>138638427
This pretty much. YYH has likeable characters.
>>
>>138633567
Yu Yu Hakucho is actually good. Hell arc with Toguro return when? Superior S Demons arc when?
>>
>>138638427
I do too, which is why I prefer HxH because the characters are better written.
>>
>>138633567
HxH is just a YYH rip off by an incompetent author who can't be bothered to finish his own story.
>>
>>138633567
When does YYH actually start getting good? The first 5 episodes were pretty interesting but now i'm on episode 13 and it's getting pretty shit with this Rando demon plot and this whole detective stuff. What episode can I expect to hook me?
>>
>>138639316
Chapter 1
Anime removed the fun shenanigans in the beginning.
>>
>>138639169
I actually agree but I find them less likable.
>>
>>138635803
HxH characters have more depth and nuance to their relationship than YYH characters. Gon and Killua aren't the fun, brotastic sort of pair people love, but they've got an emotionally charged, flawed relationship that develops throughout the series. Kurapika's character arc hasn't fully begun yet but the way he isolates himself from the others is another flaw that will lead to some development.

Leorio would fit in with YYH cast and I bet everyone who loves him also loves Kurabawa, but no surprise he's the most shallow and least developed of the four.
>>
>>138639388
So you're suggesting the read is much more worth the watch?
>>
>>138638019
No I enjoyed the Hunter exam a lot. That arc was just slow.

>speeing up anime

Yikes, fuck that.
>>
>>138639439
Yes
The anime is slow, like really slow. It's 112 episodes while the manga only has 175 chapters.
>>
>>138639509
Any idea where in the manga the chapter is where Yuusuke is fighting Rando?
>>
>>138638427
Spirit Gun is literally the gayest weapon I can think of.

chimera arc sucked but even still YYH's ending might still be worse, but considering its shorter I'd probably take it over HxH

Is this some sort of fucking joke? What's with all the people agreeing with you? The anime ranking is just so wrong.

I don't see anything wrong with it. Maybe needs more emphasis on how shit the Level E anime is?

>>138633567
YYH has only one good arc
HxH has several good arcs

Yusuke is a pretty good MC
Gon is not much of an MC

The world in YYH is poorly constructed
The world in HxH is incredibly well constructed

Basically Togashi made HxH with the mindset of making a battle shounen the way he wanted while he struggled with YYH which started out as a gag comedy and then a battle shounen and then whatever the hell it was during the Sensui arc as a whole HxH is just more consistently good while YYH starts off poorly gets way better than turns to shit again.
>>
>>138639957
>chimera arc sucked

When will you plebs get some taste?
>>
>>138634435
2011 fans BTFO
99 is the shit
>>
>>138634435
>>138633567
>>138640618

If you take your time reading the older works all of Jump titles are Togashi's recycled ideas, with but different themes.

YYH is based off on his one-shots with increasingly more mature themes; Togashi was "young" at the time and started to develop his taste on different subjects (most prominently sexuality ambiguity, xenophobia and violence/gore like in the 80's manga/anime at the time)


HxH is obviously a shonen take on Level E + YHH+ his older works+DBZ+JJBA:

Exam + Sky Arena -> YYH tournaments
Greed Island -> Power Rangers arcs
Ant Saga -> Intersexuality arc + "Demon world politics"

GR saga is new IIRC.

He really really likes to recycle themes/settings and twist them in fresh new ways.-
>>
Am I the only one who really dislikes both of these shows, Hell I didn't even think the dark tournament arc was anything special. If I have to watch a long running shounen series I'd rather rewatch zeta gundam or something
>>

If something is a take on 5+ different things does it really still count as a "take."

YYK the anime was trite garbage IMO
the nostalgia glasses of the HxH 99 camp is insane

that being said im not a fan of YYK in the first place, right there with entry level shounen like ushio no tora for me

The Rando stuff is probably the worst part of the show. It's really just meant to introduce abilities and talk about how the spirit world works.
Get to the Dark Tournament. It'll be well worth it.

Chill.

Except for yyh 2 of the main characters dont drop out for half the series only to come back in time to watch the mc lose his powers and his best friend go on a world tour with his sister.

I never really liked the ant arc it became less about nen and more about powerlevels. Sure it did have its moments but the king and the royal guard were too over powered. Hopefully the upcoming prince free for all on the boat will bring back nen fights.

Also i never really liked Gon as the mc hopefully his chapter is done and its now Ging.
>>
>>138644689
>it became less about nen and more about powerlevels.
>main antagonist killed by a fucking nuke

It literally shat all over the concept of powerlevels
>>
>>138633567
they are the same piece of shit.
