What went wrong with Hunter x Hunter 2011?
>>
>>138979537
It was literally perfection, 99 fags are just mad their awful adaptation was forgotten and the rest are elitist who look down on secondaries, no real criticisms of the show itself.
>>
same problem with the 90s anime

Hiatus
>>
I had trouble enjoying the ant arc because it just felt like Dragonball Z where a new more powerful enemy just pops up out of nowhere. Also why were they born with clothes, that's not right. Besides that it's perfection.
>>
>>138979851
hint the battles and powerlevels weren't the point of the arc
>>
Nothing, it's pretty much perfect.
>>
>>138979880
What was the point of the arc anon?
>>
>>138979880
ya I know but it was a pretty big part of it.
>>
>>138979929
Establishing a precedent of "there are things out there that even the world's strongest can't touch" or something, idk.
>>
>>138979929
-a creative take on xenomorphic races besides the "space locust eat everything" cliche you often see
-a look on human nature as the non-humans become more humane than the actual humans
-and on Gon's part the loss of innocence
>>
>>138979996
Also Human Innovation/Cruelty is Humanities greatest strength and weakness.
>>
>>138979950
And shitting all over it via a nuke and a depressing rather than heroic powerup was a bigger part
>>
>>138979537

136 episodes too long.

I agree that the Madhouse adaptation is better, but I wouldn't consider the 90s one to be awful at all.

She got killed
>>
how does nen work? can you use up all your aura? does ren protects you or just makes you stronger?
>>
>>138980364
This

Youpi, pouf and meruem didn't deserve those deaths. It's totally ironic that the presumed evil ants are killed in such an inhumane way, especially considering they were starting to find their humanity themselves (except pouf) .
Even pitou was turning herself around. She felt sympathy toward gon and I honestly think pitou felt bad for what she did to kite. If she knew gon didn't give a fuck about the king, she would have just walked away

They all had really shitty deaths, but the writing was still incredible
>>
Nothing. Just the constant bitching from autistic grimdark /v/ kiddies who want edgy dark atmosphere for no reason. 2011 was very good and encapsulated what the series was about: the sense of adventure in the beginning, the dramatic fight sequences later on with Yorknew and Greed Island and the immense power levels by Chimera arc. It's very loyal to the source material unlike 1999 and thus it is objectively better
>>
>>138982169
They deserved it considering how many people they were willing to kill. They had potential and we can easily sympathize with them, but even at the end Meruem was only willing to make concessions for the humans because they just can't coexist peacefully.
>>
>>138979851
In the middle of the arc I started to get annoyed because it was turning into some naruto tier shit where the battles were way to slow, broken down and over-explained by either the fighter or the narrator. Especially obvious shit

> he's fast
>I see, so he actually came from behind and bla bla
>I get it, he actually meh

It got better though, and overall I still really enjoyed it
>>
They somehow managed to make the music worse than the 99 version, which other than the ops/eds wasn't anything special.

Whoever directed the 2011 version didn't understand how to create tension. This ruined the Ant arc and made the York Shin arc a snooze.

Everytime the 2011 version diverged from the manga it got shitty real fast, whereas the 99 version's non-manga stuff was great.
>>
>>138982315
I. Agree. It wasnt about good vs evil at the end. It was about a battle for being the dominant species

To be fair, narration like that is a lot more natural in the manga because you don't have to actually listen to it, and the pacing is faster when you read it. Time slowing down was one of the themes of the invasion too.
>>
>>138979537
It was just the nostalgiafags that hated it
on a another note, the manga kept going on hiatus however pretty good ending on its part.
>>
Not enough yaoi bait
>>
I didn't hate it, but it's extremely overrated. All the fanatics that get buttblasted when people don't praise it as the best thing ever only reinforces that notion.

Hunter X Hunter has one of the worst fanbases ever.

the audience

It has a more cancerous fanbase than Naruto.

>>138979537
Director doesn't know how to adapt a manga to a different medium.
Director didn't bother to understand the material.
Botched characterization.
Altered the story.
Fucked up at establishing the main character.
Generic OST.
Poor sound direction.
Outright ruined a lot of character designs.
Also, the voice acting was very hammy.
>>
>>138982359
Very true
the eds were the only quality sound that the show contained.
>>
I guess it's tied to the series itself but the exposition is some of the most tedious I've ever seen. So many episodes just dedicated to explaining something relentlessly minutes at a time while everyone just listens.

There a point where it gets excessive and detracts from the whole and it flew past that without a care.
>>
>>138984884
>Also, the voice acting was very hammy.
At a certain point, you're just complaining about things for the sake of complaining. The voice acting was impressive at best (Megumi Han during ep 116), and good at worst. The overall quality of voice acting in anime is too high to bitch about 99% of the time, this is no exception.

I really feel that way about the voice acting. It was too exaggerated for me.

was genuinely taking your critisms on board (havent watch either adaptions in years) till i heard this, the ost in 2011 was god tier.

Not much at all, really. Same with '99.
>>
>>138984884

hisoka's 2011 voice is tonnes better than the original
>>
>>138985367

This implies the OST is among the best of the best, which it is not.

This is why you fanatics are so cancerous, you can't help yourself when it comes to using hyperbole.

It didn't keep running, and the last aired episode didn't have an advertisement for the new YuYu Hakusho anime at the end of it.
>>
>>138985367
that's so ill fitting
>>
Hunter x Hunter is overrated trash
>>
>>138982104
Yes, you can completely exhaust your aura, but since aura = life force you'll collapse and die.
Ren is the technique used to produce more aura than the body normally needs for use in Nen techniques. When you see a character's aura flare up DBZ style, that's Ren. It doesn't protect you or make you stronger, just makes raw material.
>>
>>138979929
Basically >>138979996

Contrasting the strongest beings in the known world, with some not even particularly strong beings (literally ants) that washed up from the Dark Continent.

Its supposed to show you how weak everyone is, and how the dark continent arc will basically be Terraformars but better.
>>
>>138985483
>It didn't keep running
what they where meant to post 5 episodes of dark continent content and then drop it rather than having a (somewhat) satisfy break in the story.
>>
>>138985470
Too easy.

>>138985518
okay fair enough, funnily enough i enjoy both these songs for the same reason, their really unique for anime while still being fitting, one focuses on finger style spanish Flamenco Guitar and the other has a slow paced blues feel.
>>
>>138985515

Over your head bro.
>>
>>138982169
>pouf
Surely you meant to write Pitou
>>
>>138985570

Bebop is fast paced jazz.

Easily best OST i've heard, although Eva and GW OSTs are also pretty golden
>>
>>138985575
lemme guess "hur dur my hiatus", "hunter x hunter? more like hiatus x hiatus". sorry i missed such a subtle, witty reference. kys m8

>>138985588
Did you like Utena's OST?
>>
>>138984884
This could be great copypasta. Drop it in any adaptation thread.
>>
>>138979537
the music. I just didn't like it and prevented me from watching this version.
>>
It's a pretty bland adaptation that doesn't really bring anything to the table except for a couple of episodes. Then there's the altered story and characterization which was really baffling.
Overall it's not pure garbage like shitposters like to say but it's nothing special either, but definitely above average for a battle shounen anime adaptation.
>>
>>138979619
True.

>>138983784
I watched '99 after 2011. '99 absolutely shits all over the remake.

Honestly we need a Phantom Troupe spin off, They have the best music and the most interesting characters and every time they're involved it's entertaining as fuck.

Also Shalnark's power is bullshit after getting out of Pell, Fuck that faggy shit.
>>
>>138985687
I've watched a few Madhouse adaptions recently and I get a similar feeling with everything.

They take such a safe direction and do nothing to mitigate massive amounts of exposition and characters just standing around.
>>
> Togashi off hiatus
> dusts off his workplace

>>138986348
The ost is a dime a dozen and isn't used correctly. They had upbeat music playing during scenes that was supposed to have tension.

What did Kurapika do when he realized that the scarlet eyes he got for Nostrade family in the auction were fake (kurotopi's materialization)?
>>
Both were overall just above average adaptations for different reasons. I feel bad for those who watched either anime before reading the manga.
>>
Satotzu said that one of his inspirations to be a hunter was Ging, but he couldn't find him to give thanks for everything. Why dindn't he do that when all hunters are gathered due Netero's farewell (death)?
>>
The lack of '99 fags just doesn't add up right now. By my scientific explanation it is because neets don't wake up until at least 1pm in America. Everyone prepare, the baseless circlejerk shitposting is coming.
>>
>>138979537
Pasting the manga mindlessly, unable to use the OST properly or effectively almost all the time, greedy on animation, flash exposition galore, exposition talking heads galore, stock footage galore whenever production felt behind, dragging things to pad the episode count, puke inducing speedlines, using the same damn OP for the whole show.

An anon posted this and then deleted his post in another thread, I'm not sure why. He translated some blog post that had pic related. Thanks nameless anon, it's a good chart.
>>
>>138989093
Togashi's 9 chapters are way more developed than other shonen's complete arcs.
>>
>>138989093
This is useful, but Zzigg and Maha are not the same person.
>>
>>138989173
Yeah that's a stupid theory, he might be maha"s son though.
>>
>>138989171
Shonen complete arc? Shonen complete story you daid
>>
>>138985367

The OST had some okay tunes, but the vast majority of them were awful. Especially at the beginning of the series. It got a bit better at the end, but even then they kept recycling the same few songs most of the time.

First half - One of the worst OSTs I've ever heard
Second half - Decentish, but should've had more variety

Some of the EDs were fine, but YOU CAN SMILE AGAIN was a mistake in all regards.
>>
>>138979537
>very bad OST
>they drawn out chimera and election arcs
>it's an adaptation of HxH, a fondamentally flawed story with terrible pacing and bad characterization
>>
>>138979537
It ruined the fanbase.
HxH threads are full of redditors, maltards and crossboarders now.
>>
>>138989171
This is probably why there was a hiatus. Togashi needed time to really put this together.
>>
>>138990288
I think Kakin family arc is unnecessary
>>
>>138985276
It isn't male nor female. Just let people decide how to call this creature.
>>
>>138992511
So she
>>
>>138979537

It was ok but i liked the pacing, atmosphere and music of the 1999 one better.
