It has been confirmed that Hunter X Hunter will b having a 2011 Fall series. I wonder if it will be re-vamp or continue where the OVA's left off either way I am excited!

Please let it be a continuation. That cliffhanger ending in the OVA is still bugging me. The makers already done a great job with the anime from Hunter x Hunter to Greed Island Final. Remaking them will be so off-putting. The story in the manga has gone so far not even 3 seasons can cover all that.

say what hunter x hunter,madness !!:)
Lets hope for a continuation,that would be great new.

Better, you READ.

I read TV anime series in the image. Perhaps someone brings more info?

Keroko 2011-07-24 17:55

I'm... hesitant. Considering how absolutely -terrible- the manga became after Greed Island, the OVA ended on a perfect spot.

Ravenblitz 2011-07-24 18:04

Good news! anyways please be a continuation... and the manga to continue also :)

Kariko 2011-07-24 18:38

It's probably going to be crappy... but I can't wait. Fall 2011 will truly be the season to remember.

Suzuku 2011-07-24 19:40

I wonder what studio will animate this new series? Nippon Animation hasn't produced anything in a long ass fucking time...

Haohmaru 2011-07-24 21:15

Yeah, I'm wondering that as well. What do you guys want it to be, OVA or TV series? I actually prefer OVA's if it means better quality. If not TV series it is.

@Keroko, wow you hate chimera ant arc that much? IMO it's by no means terrible. It's between decent and good imo. I have to say the latest development in the manga regarding Gon was terrible indeed.

poisui 2011-07-24 22:44

I'm not looking forward to this. The ants arc is just too dragged out. Most important of all, it is not even close to being over.

MisaoFan 2011-07-25 00:26

According to ANN, this is going to be TV series. It will be animated by Madhouse.

Lilith 2011-07-25 01:55

Oh, oh, ohhh *breathes* I really LOVE HxH!! One of the few shounen titles I follow. :heh: Read the manga (pure awesomeness), watched the anime (pretty good) and even watched the arab dub (was... cute).

I hope it'll continue the story. But even if it was a "revamp", I'd follow. It'll be nostalgic seeign them all happy again taking the hunter's exam. :D

Killua <3 *fangirls*

A whole new story would be great for me. There are things I want to see from the Chimera ant arc, like the Spiders kicking ass, Biscuit/Biske training sessions, Palm, and Killua's Kanmaru, but I don't want to end on some ****ty note, like the original TV series did. So if it's a TV series, I suppose the ant arc would be okay, otherwise, or if it's an OVA, definitely some new material is what I'd prefer.

I'm tempted to dismiss this, but I know I shouldn't. I dismissed Hikaru no Go for years until some persuaded me to watch it, and I was shocked how great it was. Can anyone compare this to another series I might know, either in terms of quality or style?

It's hard to find any series that can be compared to it, in the same way it was hard to do it for JoJo too. Up to the end of the Greed Island arc, it was one of the best shounen manga around. Togashi have laid a set of rules regarding his local power system (nen) and have been consistent with them. It result in battles that are won by wits and planning rather than the general "I POWER UP AND SHOOT BIGGER LAZERS!" brute force.

The cast is also likeable, you will always have someone to like among the protagonists. And on the villain side, you have the Phantom Brigade, one of the few villainous examples of a nakama, that is still cherished by the fans.

It's worth a read, really.

Yes, yes I do. Obviously we can't discuss it much due to the inevitable spoilers but suffice to say the plot- and character development in that arc were downright terrible in my opinion. Yes, it had a few cool things, but all things combined the chimera arc is the main reason I am glad that the OVA ended where it did.

I hope the anime ignores the arc and just goes for an original thing.

Nightengale 2011-07-25 04:00

To me, my main complaints about the Chimera arc is that it was horrendously draggy mid-arc, during the whole chess-piece thing. And that one piece of fanservice mini-story.

Aside from that, while I wouldn't agree with everything Togashi has done in it... I felt that it had a very original un-original take towards the whole thing.

You're pretty much asking for the impossible. This isn't a movie.

Very true, but the bolded part is what sets it FAR atop for me compared to Jump's Big 3. In just about every arc, the chars NEVER simply use brute force, just about every action, from both the protagonists and antagonists, is calculated ahead of time, ESP among the stronger characters. And the power system keeps things balanced so that skill and technique is FAR more important than sheer power ever will be.

*shrug* Hey, it's been done before. And considering the arc isn't even finished yet, they at least are going to have to brew their own story to finish it.
