For most of them, it's a paycheck. Just like in the real mafia - where the hell do you find people who serve others out of slavish devotion? For someone they barely know. And who's a mafia boss.

It doesn't take away from the fact they're helping said mafia boss with his activities. Which no doubt include murder, extortion, and whatever the hell it is mafias do.

They have to blend-in to achieve their goals,that's like calling a police/agent spy who's trying to take down an illegal organization(random example) a bad person since he's technically serving the bad guys.

Although I am sure that some of them are trying to use him for bad things,I don't think that it makes everyone in that group a "devil".
That's not my point. My point is that, just because she hasn't been hostile so far, doesn't mean Senritsu "won't use her abilities for bad things". She's already using them to get a job in the mafia.

VA for Chrollo and Shalnark, just don't fit their image and I'm strongly disliking Shalnark childish voice.

Maybe I'm bias with the old animation (1999) VA's

Everyone in Genei Ryodan are badass! Each at Hisoka level or above! I lol@ Hisoka getting horny, looking at Chrollo. I guess its wrong to mark him as a pedo.

I dunno, I think Chrollo's voice is actually fairly befitting.

Is it just me, or was the preview dialogue rather yaoi-esque?

He wore those very clothes in the manga for a few chapters.

HxH is one of those rare shounens where characters actually change clothes.

Oooh, lots of new voices and sounds in this episode.

That church music? No complaints, a real good mood setter. Most of the voices are slightly different, of course, but they mostly are very similar or fit well enough. Feitan is a bigger change than most, but it still fits his quiet theme. Kuroro is a tad different, they seem to be giving him more emotion here. Doesn't bother me too much, but mileage may vary here.

Shalnark's voice... was the biggest disappointment. Too young in my opinion.

Uvo is awesome. Just... yes, awesome. Different voice, but Broskandar fits Uvo like a glove.

Gon & Killua learned interesting info about Greed Island.
So basically you enter the game and can't get out if you don't find a save point.
That's sure one dangerous game, but not unexpected since it was made for Nen users.
Kurapika & few others managed to get hired finally. First mission: protect the boss.
Wtf, the boss is a cute girl called Neon?! No way! Her dad is the one Kurapika is after, probably.

Her dad's the one with the power, but Neon's the "collector" that Kurapika wants to get close to. Her dad buys her "treasures" in exchange for her fortunetelling. She wants to go the auction, but when it's too dangerous the bodyguards get sent in her place. What does she want to buy? A bunch of human body parts including Kurta eyes. People like Neon who collect this stuff are the very reason Kurapika's tribe was slaughtered. No one would bother stealing something that wasn't valuable. She's his target.

Umm, I gotta say. Huge disappointment in Pakunoda's first appearance. They REALLY skimped on drawing her. I think you all know why that's unacceptable. I'm not really a fan of the new style of drawing Anime--way too clean. I miss the grittiness of 90s drawing, like Gundam Wing and the original Hunter X Hunter--am liking the new series so far, though.

Just curious, I'm not familiar with the manga of Hunter x hunter; was the Greed Island OVA as bad as a manga as it was as the anime? There was a huge character change in Hisoka and the series turned incredibly childish. Just wantin to gauge how Greed Island will be if they take the remake that far.

Indeed. Uvo is basically an evil Rider, so Akio Ohtsuka is a perfect fit. As for the rest (based on what little lines we got)...

- Chrollo: Another great fit. The only nitpick I've got is that Mamoru Miyano is a rather overexposed VA, which for me slightly reduces the mystique surrounding the character. But leaving that aside (which he can't help), he's definitely the man for the job and I look forward to his future lines.
- Feitan: An improvement over his voice in the original anime, which, while unique and relatively charming, ended up misguidedly turning Feitan into a trap of sorts. Plus, it's great to hear Kappei Yamaguchi use a voice similar to his creepy L voice once again (probably an unpopular opinion but I gotta say I don't care much for the more normal (for lack of a better word) voice he uses for Usopp and whatnot).
- Nobunaga: Not bad, but I think his original voice fit his character and appearance better, which is kind of annoying since that VA played the guy whose heart Killua ripped out in this version. Could've had him reprise Nobunaga while they were at it, but oh well, the new guy is still a serviceable replacement.
- Franklin: The only one I downright disliked. Calmer and more nonchalant Franklin in the original sounded much better IMO and closer to how I imagined him in the manga.
- Shalnark: Heard lots of complaints, but I'm not sure what the problem is. He's an amiable and cheerful kid... and sounds like one. Plus, hearing Noriko Hidaka in this day and age is an awesome privilege.

The rest we didn't hear as much from (except Machi, whom we'd already heard narrate half an episode), but sounded all right.

I had mixed feelings about their scenes though. The first one was pure filler and honestly felt kind of dry and pointless to me. They already did this with Kurapica's team, in that they came up with filler introductions for them, which resulted in them being essentially introduced twice (first the filler one, then the canon one). I can't really appreciate such senseless padding.

The other scenes were much better though, since, what do you know, Togashi's a better writer than the anime staff. Well, there was still a little anime original material in having Hisoka arrive late, but it worked well enough. And it was rather amusing in that they went for the exact opposite of the original anime, which had Hisoka be the first one to arrive (in case you're wondering the manga didn't specify). I'd say this version's liberty made more sense though considering Hisoka's character.

I felt the music placement could've been better though. The church-like tune felt a little overstated and lacking in subtlety to me. The original anime usually went for this cool and relaxed unofficial Phantom Troupe theme in their scenes, which to me fit their image better - they're kind of like the Turks in FFVII, boasting perpetually cool attitudes and possessing great banter between them. But anyway we'll see how they're handled from now on. Hopefully well, since they're my absolute favorite villainous group in shounen manga.

He sounds like he's in his mid-teens rather than early twenties. That's the only complaint, really.

It's especially a problem since he's supposed to be one of the smarter members.

For me I don't have a problem with Shalnark's voice. I got used to male characters with female voices (Goku, Kenshin, Sojiro, Luffy).

Especially Sojiro. Noriko Hidaka has voiced him in Rurouni Kenshin. It's not a new voice to me.

That's not it. It's mostly because most people and myself are bit bias to the voice he had back in the 1999 version. Shalnark reminds me of Doremon now...

I don't remember what he sounded like. I still think his voice doesn't fit his build. Or role in the troop.

VA's so far are good, but if we are trying to compare both versions, I would say only Feitan and Machi seems better fitted for their characters on this version.
