Why is Pika such best boy?
>implying this is anything other than art
Why did 2011 give Kurapika such a badass hard rock theme?
I didn't think that he could do more than 4 meters, I just thought that his 4 meters was more sensitive than typical En and that complemented great sword skills and reflexes.
Sort of headcanon, but not really because I figured that he must be stronger than what we know for certain about him.
I know what I did. It was very hazukashii. Did the wait time to delete posts get longer?
They are true masterpieces.
Why did 2011 give Pitou such a happy upbeat pop theme?
Gotta say 2011 had some pretty good songs
Why is Chrollo such a homosexual?
Threadly reminder that Nobunaga will actually be reliable.
That's her character song. There's a difference. This is the song written for Pitou on the OST, but it doesn't have much of a melody, it's just a kind of atmospheric song. I don't know why they put a bunch of songs for the series on the phantom rouge album.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Gm1wSuKrQM incredibly fast Killua
This starts on the same exact chords as Restriction and Pledge, pretty cool leitmotif since they both play when Meruem has a big realization
you know you liked it. As soon as you heard that opening you knew shit just got real
Their sound director seemed to suck at his job. 2011 had a great OST, but some songs were spammed way too much. Particularly, these to fucking songs and variations of them:
Well it's better than the narration in CA.
That song is a mix of Restriction and Pledge with Pouf's theme
This is the true. The only song that didn't get old after being spammed was Hashire
Damn I miss Pouf, he was one of my favorites in CA
stop bully, he just wanted to be Meruems queen
Anyone who thinks either anime is flawless is delusional. Most 2011fags will agree that the sound direction was generally poor and some songs were overused, but that says nothing about the soundtrack on its own, and when post-production wasn't fucking it up the OST really elevated the story.
Togashi draws random animals on a lot of his covers. Maybe they are all foreshadowing.
this. 99fags are delusional if they think 1999 is in any way worse. they even managed to get hisoka's hair color wrong
99 fucks up in other places, but the colors are only "wrong" because your bias assumes 2011 is right.
But anon I'm
19. It can't be helped.
I love this. 2011fags are all 12 year olds who can't communicate without using buzzwords. Probably also the people doing the "o my nen" shit.
Is this bait?
>Narrator: "THE FIRST TO REALIZE WAS PITOU"
>pitou raises her head, opens her eyes and looks at the sky
>Narrator: "WONDERING HERSELF WHY SHE DECIDED TO LOOK AT THE SKY; SHE HAD A FEELING; A PIDDLING FEELING"
>Pitou: "Something is coming"
>a few seconds pass
>Narrator: "HOWEVER, A FEW SECONDS LATER, HER GUESS BECAME SURE"
>Pitou looks alert and concerned
This isn't even the most egregious example of telling instead of showing or, rather, showing and unnecessarily bogging the show down to a snail's pace with a patronizing immersion-breaking narrator telling me exactly what the fuck is going on in front of my very eyes. The fight with Youpi that follows this is an absolute fucking disastrous 2 hour piece of shit.
This scene where they are preparing to raid the palace in Knov's portal room was the hypest moment that I've ever experienced in an anime. I knew that when that minute was up, shit was gonna go down and heads were going to roll and that there was going to be a chaotic and climactic melee and that if I blinked I would miss it. I WAS SO PUMPED.
What followed was the dumbest shit ever.
>10 second fight with Youpi stretched out to 2 hours
>literally a gif of Youpi flailing his tentacles around for 10 episodes while the narrator drones on and on about things that are either completely wrong, incomprehensible or obvious
>30 minutes of Morel staring at a cocoon like a dummy
The narration, and basically the whole handling of the chimera ant arc after the palace raid starts is completely reprehensible.
The only people that I've seen defend it are disgustingly uncultured redditors.
"Dude it's so intellectual and adds so much meaning"
"Wow, it's like literature, this arc is so smart and deep"
SHOW DONT TELL
SHOW DONT TELL
SHOW DONT TELL
SHOW DONT TELL
99 had so many well animated scenes.
sorry your attention span is less than that of a 10 year old. you're right, you should stick to 1999
I really fucking hate that song. It has zero subtlety in it and the director decided to use it one every scene with anything remotely happening. Lot of the scenes would have been better silent.
My attention span is fine. I watched through the whole thing.
Sorry but most of us over the age of 14 are able to comprehend the subtext of a simple cartoon plot and the emotions of characters without it being literally and painstakingly explained to us.
But anon it's not gross. I just want just want to cuddle and smell his sweet, jovial scent.
Haven't read the mango, but it sounds like the manga would be better because people can read faster than they can listen to a drawling narrator while staring at a looped Youpiflailingarms.gif for 2 hours.
Is the manga really that much more wordy than '11?
You should know better anon, the only one who's allowed to do that is Gon. Stop being weird. Seriously though, can't you just like Killua without wanting to do lewd things to him.
Zeno jumps behind him then teleports in front of him. Just another example of QUALITY animation from the 1999 adaptation.
>watch 2011, '99, and read the manga
>they're all the same thing
so this...is the power...of autism
This isn't DBZ bud. If a character is fast it's part of their Hatsu like Killua or they're a specific ridiculous power spike like Netero and Meruem, you don't just get to teleport because you're 'agile'
Togashi's the kind of guy who can never decide on official colors for his characters so maybe.
Uh-oh Pitou is getting ready to attack you, what do?
The new version is good except for Chimera Ant. It has a great soundtrack, although the editors spam it at the wrong times occasionally. The animation is consistently great and never bad, but many '99 webms seem to have more stylish animation and the '99 visuals fit the darker themes of the show better.
I haven't seen 99, so I can't if it's better or worse. I've also heard from some people that '99 has a lot of scenes that were cut from '11 because they were "filler", but they are actually valuable to get to know the characters better.
>99fags will defend this
This is far better than the movies
>99fags will defend this
When will best boy ever get a real fight? He got cucked out of the only fight he could've had by Killua.
How the fuck is an emmited punch better than stealing other hatsus, moving as fast as lightning or having a super strong punch that can be both emmited and turned isto a sword?
I don't want to include myself in this 99 vs 11 shitshow, but the narrator in the manga serves a different purpose than the one in the anime. Because the manga is composed of static pictures, I feel like his presence helps to connect various panels and also offers a different perspective to the events depicted in the drawings. Of course, the anime also uses some of these traits, but another advantage for the manga is that it never interrupts the action because the narrator is always in the background.
>conjures chain to steal hatsu
>fist appears inside brain, gets lobotomized
>starts rock, paper, scissors attack
>fist appears inside brain, gets lobotomized
>gains lightning fast reflexes and programs self to move at inhuman speeds to dodge any attack
>fist appears inside brain, gets lobotomized
We don't even know if that's possible, and Togashi won't have Leorio do that anyway...I think. Leorio wouldn't do it against a human, but perhaps he'd use it against some scary monster on the DC.
Exactly. Narrating fast paced fights turns scenes that would have a good flow and pace into powerpoint shitshows.
This is why Jojo doesn't really work as an anime.
However, HxH works perfectly as an anime because it doesn't need narration in video form. The makers of the anime unfortunately dont understand this and turned the latter half of CA, which could have been GOD TIER into a steaming pile of crap.
>HxH isn't a battle manga. It's a philosophical one
Reddit please, HxH said that humans ruin everything once and you fags suddenly think it's Confucius.
He never had a chance
1. Netero vs Meruem
2. Hisoka vs Chrollo
3. Kurapika vs Uvo
4. Chrollo vs Zoldycs
5. Spiders vs ants
Cammy went from one of the mysterious top princes with unknown survival odds to a neon "kill me" sign in several pages
If her nen beast isn't very capable of defending her she is seemingly screwed
I think Zhang is a sleeper candidate for survival with how composed and observant he is. Camilla's silence and Zhang's confidence in 358 suggested otherwise, but I think he has a spiritual aspect and composure that will lead to a powerful Nen Beast. That and he apparently asked a question to the King that has yet to be revealed, but I'll be waiting on the Viz translation before committing that to memory.
>Killua will never bully my feet.
Why even live?
Hey Hey Hey! Hunter x Hunter is fucking gay!
Reminder that we still have:
>"chrollo" using a fishing line (which is machi's ability, who was coincidentally in HA immediately after the fight)
>someone who looks suspiciously like the meteor elder in the crowd (which would also be a much more plausible explanation for why S&M behaved the way it did)
>chrollo making an absurd amount of puppets (the real user of GF was coincidentally in HA immediately after the fight)
>chrollo talking to someone on the phone in the middle of the fight (black voice was always controlled via buttons when Shalnark used it, the only time it was spoke into was when it was functioning as a regular cell phone)
If you really don't think Chrollo cheated you're just deluded.
Gon doesn't even know what gay is.
Goodnight, me and Pitou are going to bed to cuddle.
excellent foreshadowing, HxH is the series that just keeps on giving
What comes to mind:
Hisoka vs Gotoh. That fight had good paneling.
Chrollo vs Hisoka was incredible even though Chrollo had the overwhelming advantage.
Chrollo vs Silva/Zeno.
Dodgeball is a given.
Gon has consistently interesting fights as well.
here's your (you)
>not understanding blue balls type hype
,which blue balls you for so long and then gives you an amazing hype release like no other
You are a pleb and only time this kind of hype was annoying was in S2 of Kaiji
I mean i understand it is kind of hard to delineate everything that is happening during the raid without using a sort of narrative in the manga, but there is literally no reason to use that kind of narrative in the anime.It was retarded and tiresome explaining every single obvious detail for 10 episodes.
t. someone who read the manga first
I completely agree and that is why i hate anime adaptations that are animated panel by panel by the studio just because they are too afraid to perform creative traits.There is being faithful to the source material, and playing it safe and easy.
All my money on 1st Prince now.
Just for the fact that this page right here describes my family life perfectly.
Can't fucking wait to see how she dies
No idea. Killua is better in every way.
If you had read the manga correctly you would have known that beasts can't attack the hosts directly and protect their master. they have to use their brains, resources while being supported by the best to win.
>beasts can't attack the hosts directly
1. it refers to the other hosts, not their own host
2. it doesn't matter, because the nen beast can kill their own host indirectly. For instance by draining ttheir aura or by abandoning them, leaving them open to attack from other nen beasts.
This is the meaning of "the only survivor will be the successor".
It doesn't mean that the only one to survive will become the successor. It means that the one more worthy to be the successor will be the only one allowed to survive.
An host is an host anon. Nowhere is it said that there is an exception for their personal hosts.
Draining aura doesn't kill them, it causes fatigue. Lack of aura never killed in HxH
viz says generically that they can't attack hosts, niggerstream says they ca't attack other hosts.
Viz is generally better, but often they simplify and lose important details.
having one's aura drained can kill a person, as kurapika specifically explained when he used his new power.
>Transmute your aura into poison
>kill anyone who enters your AoE
Why has nobody done this yet?
>immune to all kinds of poison
Does Zeno have familiarity with dragons?
Does Silva have familiarity with bombs?
Does Feitan have familiarity with being burned alive?
>having one's aura drained can kill a person, as kurapika specifically explained when he used his new power.
Nah, he said he can put him in Zetsu state. Gon wasted all his aura several times and the consequences were intense fatigue.
Gon never died because when you use up enough aura you fall down exausted and can't use up the rest of your aura which is keeping you alive. Soeone else can keep draining it from you.
And it doesn't matter because it was just en example of how a nen beast could kill their own host without attacking them .There could be other ways. In fact since we don't know everything about the pot ceremony Togashi could reveal anything he wanted.
You are being extremely bureaucratic about something we know very little about and completely ignoring the point that I made. That the princes don't need to kill each other, and there can't be survivors other than the successor even if the winner wants to spare them, because the ceremony itself guarantees that all those who aren't the future king will die in some way of another.
The Japanese text says "Cannot directly attack people who possess spirit beasts"
because he's smart, handsome, determined and has a strong sense of morality.
>Does Zeno have familiarity with dragons?
he just changed the shape of his nen, not its nature
>Does Silva have familiarity with bombs?
same as above, and anyway we don't know how his nen works.
>Does Feitan have familiarity with being burned alive?
he just needs to have familiarity with fire,the power of the attack then depends on his rage.
>Does Silva have familiarity with bombs?
A) We don't know if that was his main ability, it didn't seem like it and
B) It just looked like any other enhancer's standard ability.
Hisoka is a slut while Pouf is gay only for his king
There are lots of faggots, but who is the straightest man in HxH?
Perfect husbando material though.
This man is so hetero that he refused to spare a single drop of testosterone for his sons.
Only objective is to smash that pussy.
I've gone ahead an updated the Killuafag image. Is there anything else we need to add?
I think you should go fuck yourself.
I want Killua to bully my feet too. Imagine getting a shock from him~
I'm sure she was a lovely young lady when they first met
This is the one we forgot about yesterday lads.
I hope we get to see Gon bully his feet sometime in the future, all that pent up anxiety from being without each other would really fuel the fun
Killua's insecurity everytime Gon says something to him.
I want to see Gon make Killua blush. Maybe Killua gets a little stiff that Gon can take care of through his shorts.
Maybe they do if it's their first experience. Killua didn't even know what a friend was.
d-do you think there are women right here, in this very thread?
favorite character in anime and manga
Mine will always be Pariston Hill
There everywhere anon, right under our very noses
>Can't come up with an actual retort
>"You are retarded"
If I had a nickel for every person that does this on 4chan I would have a lot of money. If you can't contribute just shut the fuck up. Nobody cares who some mongoloid thinks is retarded.
He's a faggot in each of them, nothing's different
He makes Killua blush a lot, I don't know what you're talking about
I blushed all the time. I remember I had a game with a friend as a little kid, where we would pull down our shorts and show each other our underwear. It was fun, but it made me blush.
I've missed you Killuafags. One day, he will return and the threads will be all about him.
Yes, and there shall be a great celebration!
>Why do 99 vs 2011fags exist
>Here is a 99fag to demonstrate my point
99 is a saturated mess and the shading only looks more pronounced because every shot is so fucking dark. 99 isn't bad in the least, but it loses solely by way of being unfinished.
Nah, you faggots can kill yourselves for all I care. The new era of Pika is just beginning.
2011 is a over saturated mess with no shading and it looks like a show my 6 year old watches . 2011 isn't bad in the least, but it loses solely by way of being bland boring mess.
Killua would absolutely destroy that tribal faggot in a 1v1 though.
Why? The post in the link makes a good point. From the screenshots you can tell more effort was put into 1999 than 2011 and I'm not even a 99fag.
I haven't watched 1999 or 2011 yet but I definitely will watch 1999 first.
t. Hasn't even watched 2011. If you're going to return an argument at least make it coherent. There are shots of 99 in this thread right now and every single one looks like a poorly compressed jpeg.
Why do I fall for these pathetic baits.
99fags are pretty deluded to believe that because something is grainier that somehow makes it look better. I like how 99fags always just conveniently forget that 2011 is three times as long as 99 and has no filler episodes.
99 also as I have mentioned has incredibly low quality audio and a forgettable soundtrack. 2011 has an amazing soundtrack and better voice actors in addition to being a more faithful adaptation.
It was great.
2011 made it look so goofy I almost started to not like it.
Hisokas problem is that bungee gum has high utility, but not much in the way of offensive power. It's good for fodder or specific 1v1s, but not enough to take on some other foes. The Chrollo fight would be over if he had any AOE attacks that could have fucked up the plebs rushing him.
How long something is has nothing to do with anything.
It was okay soundtrack, they had no idea how to use it though. Also too few tracks.
>better voice actors
Not at all. It took 50 episodes to not hear them as just some random street guys.
Also filler done good isn't bad. See
>How long something is has nothing to do with anything.
What? You realise they have to actually pay money to produce episodes right? Or did 99fags just forget that the 99 anime was an anime and two OVAs.
1999 had better voice actors in the sub and dub. there is nothing to defend here
People defending 2011 are the same people defending dubs.
I literally just watched 99 and 2011 back to back and the animation in both is fine in different areas.
Both of them are extremely well animated and extremely poorly animated in different areas. The Hisoka fight is well animated in both. The people in this thread arguing are actual mouth breathing retards and trolls. The 99 anime was made nearly 20 years ago and the 2011 anime covers a lot more of the manga. Of course they are going to suffer in specific areas because of those things.
2011 doesn't do anything right. They made Gon and Killua both faggots and even managed to mess up the first episode by not showing Kite. Madhouse is retarded.
>The people in this thread arguing are actual mouth breathing retards and trolls
It's mostly 2011fags though. All 99fags have watched both. 2011fags just look at the images and argue about "off-models". Actually I doubt most of 2011fags have even read the manga. 99fags only seem rapid because of the rapid ignorant comments of 2011fags.
>implying they're not gay
