If you actually read HxH and then read Naruto, it's easy to see.

It was even easier to see when both were updating at the same time almost a decade ago.
The protagonist for both series was voiced by Junko Takeuchi (in the japanese version).

Is a remake really necessary, though? I honestly think they should just continue where they left off with the OVA. I couldn't look beyond the art in the Hunter x Hunter manga, so I was never able to follow the story after finishing the OVA.

And now that you've mentioned that...damn, i REALLY hope they don't change Hisoka's VA, at least. Hiroki Takahashi was fantastic.

Hisoka apparently is Daisuke Namikawa.

Oh well, Namikawa is great but i'm really gonna miss Takahashi.
I hope Namikawa uses a tone similar to the one he's using for Ichijou in Kaiji.

Yep! Megumi Han is Keiko Han (Luna of Sailor Moon)'s daughter! But I wonder how old she is. She doesn't look older than 16!

Fujiwara Keiji should do a fantastic job as Leorio.

& i'm interested in what approach Han Megumi will take. It's always good to have a brand new voice for a main character.

Hmm, looks like the only main voice I'll miss is Junko Takeuchi as Gon. But we still don't know much about Han Megumi yet so who knows, maybe she would be able to pull it off. The rest of the cast looks very fitting and are all well-known and well-loved seiyuu(s).

I'm still on the fence about this reboot but it looks like the new voice cast has at least provided me a good reason to really look forward to it now.

So, why they reboot an already excellent (if not perfect) series? This reboot better be better than the the original, although I know it will not as fresh as when I saw it the first time.
Seriously. The original anime was a damn fine adaptation already. I really don't see the point in this one.

Oh god. Daisuke Namikawa is a good voice actor and all, but Hisoka just isn't Hisoka without Hiroki Takahashi. What a major bummer.

Not sure about the rest either. I've only heard female roles from Mariya Ise and Miyuki Sawashiro, so I've no idea if they'll be able to pull off Killua and Kurapika convincingly. I'll see I guess. Keiji Fujiwara as Leorio should definitely work though.

I don't know the source material here, but if it makes you feel any better Sawashiro Miyuki has played many, many male roles.

Wasn't the old series already very faithful to the manga? I don't see how they can make this possibly appealing to the old fans...

They won't. This is to introduce the series to a new audience.

....shock.....

I will miss the old cast mostly Junko Takeuchi, Kanako Mitsuhashi and of course, Hiroki Takahashi.
I will have to see how this new cast works out hard to say with a new comer for Gon, but I guess we'll have to wait and see....or hear.

Hunter X Hunter:Brotherhood.
Somehow I got excited. They're retelling the story, there 25+ volumes, its somehow I watched when I was a kid. . . GAH!

Anyway I don't remember the plot at all and this will definitely be a winner series for me.

AND MADHOUSE. . . KYAAAAAAAA! Squealing like a fanboy. Now its ensured of good animation. I was worrying someone like Pierrot or Toei would do this. Its becoming more and more like Brotherhood.

How big is the story atm? Think this will be a long running (i.e. 100+) series? Or something that can be wrapped up in 52 episodes, TBC whenever the manga finishes. Although Madhouse has in the past faithfully adapted another series and went with an original ending at the very end (Claymore anyone?), so that's a bit worrisome.

Also, from my understanding the manga is far from over and will likely take a long time. (Right?) So what's the point of this reboot now? If the manga doesn't finish for several years are we gonna look at another Natruto or Bleach (200+ episodes adding filler while waiting on the manga) or we looking at ANOTHER remake in 5 years from now?

A REBOOT?

Mixed feelings here. I'm vey atatched to the old anime, nice animation, beautiful music and awesome VAs. It was pretty faithful to the manga (with only like what, 1 or 2 filler episodes?)

Perhaps it'll be a "short" reboot, just to refresh our memories. And then follow the manga which might end soon.

Or they make it like Naruto/Bleach/One piece and the manga which might carry on and on and on...
