Was Kurapika actually remorseful when he killed Uvo in the 1999 adaptation? To be honest I only actually saw that fight up to this bit and I generally interpreted that moment as Kurpaki's pure bloodlust close to taking over his sanity which was kinda scary.

Well...even so i would've definitely liked something like that in this adaptation.

Most authors don't care. The fans care about this stuff the most. Besides, changes can't be avoided and authors know this.

Can we move on now? This is getting pretty off-topic.

No, people make a big deal out of his reaction after killing him. Most of which is played the same and can be interpreted in anyway.

Since there's a lack of activity, I decided to bring up the character popularity poll form around the current events:


[*]-Killua (13,728 votes) [I love his sharp edges! - He seems the strongest! - I want him as a little brother!][*]-Kurapika (13,498 votes) [What amazing resolve. - Is he a man or a woman? - I love him so much!!][*]-Gon (3,929 votes) [He's so cute! - I wish him luck!! - I want to be his friend!!][*]-Hisoka (1,846 votes) [He's so mysterious!! - Scary, but I still love him!!]
Even Togashi makes fun of Kurapica's androgynous character. And the first example is clearly reaching. Honestly you guys take this crap too seriously.

So the director emphasized Kurapika's femininity because he liked that aspect of his character. It doesn't mean he's a girl. The whole thing is just meta joke, nothing more.

Those are actually fan comments...not Togashi's.

Anyways, this debate probably won't end until people stop talking about it. Someone will always pop into the thread and say which version they liked better, and rarely does any reason adhere to some objective criteria. It's all opinion.

Like what you like. But in all honesty, aside from the comparisons, I hardly see the need for anyone to even discuss the 1999 series in this thread. Shouldn't there be a topic for it somewhere on this board?

the point is that people keep arguing the old version kurapica is more accurate wich clearly is incorrect.

but going as far as to adapt the character differently for a joke, i higly doubt it.

Certainly togashi likes androhynous characters, i readed somewhere he wanted to do a manga of crossdressing boys, and there are some cases in tis series as well, like how senritsu is confused often for a man, but potraying kurapika the way they did is crossing the line, there is this other scene shinobi didnt posted where leorio meet with kurapica while talking on the phone, that one is as cheesy as they come.

Next thing you know, Shinobi will be claiming that in 1999, everyone thinks Kurapica is a guy but in reality "she" is just hiding "her" true gender. ZING! The logic of a 2011 fan.

Okay, I am re-opening this thread.

After reviewing the situation, we decided to create a special new thread specifically for comparisons between the 1999 and 2011 anime adaptations of this franchise. Here is that thread. From this point forward, these sorts of comparisons are not allowed in this thread, and will be considered off-topic. Please use this thread only to discuss the 2011 anime itself.

I guess asking for a sub-forum for an unpopular series such as this would be stupid, huh?

Anyway, I loved the latest episode of HxH, specially that last scene with Uvo. Kurapika looked freaking badass when he crushed Uvo's heart. But at the same time, it felt kinda sad, because every single member of The Phantom Troupe is awesome, so it's hard to see any of them die.

I liked how dead Kurapika's eyes were when burying Uvo too. Beautifully portayed how he is after the fight without being too emo.

I loved that scene too. It's like Kurapika is aware that this quest is slowly killing him inside, but he can't stop.

Like I said before, I feel like he resigned himself to this fate a long time ago.

I agree with you. He's a hunter for this one purpose.

I liked Uvo's dead face as it was getting covered with dirt.

Episode 48: Well, that was abbreviated. I guess I can see why they chose to do that, but I think it kind of hurts the flow. Also, it makes much less sense.
