If someone asks me which version or part of HxH I like more. I can tell them and why and if they agree or not is fine with me.

For the record, more often than not I like the artwork and animation(different things btw which people always mix up) of the remake more because it is clean and consistent. I can always tell what is going on whether it is brightly lit or a dark environment. That's something I can't say for the old series.

I'd honestly rather bring in new people to appreciate the story rather than convince 2 or 3 people who are pretty grounded in their opinions already. As the hundreds of comments on Crunchyroll for episode 52 show, the reception to the fight has been more positive while this thread, which is made up of more hardcore fans, is more often than not negative.

"Amazing!!! I'm glued in my seat!"

"awesome!! I am hooked!! This is an Epic tale."

"I love this<3 Killua's family amazing "

Both show Kura with a different style of hitting the bald dude, which I ain't complaining much, still personal favorite is the 1999 version of him punching him away. It reminds me of DBZ. lol

A quick note: Kurapika's line to Zenji in the 1999 series is different from the manga/2011 series.

Kurapika (1999): "Stop. Don't bother me as I am right now."
Kurapika (manga/2011): "Stop. I'm ready to lash out against the first person I see...and it might as well be you."

The 1999 series had many little line changes like this, for some bizarre reason. Another example, from the top of my head, is during the arm wrestling scene between Gon and Nobunaga. When Killua interjects into their conversation, Nobunaga in the manga and 2011 series threatens to kill the boy if he speaks again. In the 1999 series, Nobunaga's line is changed to "hurt" from "kill."

You sure its not a translating error or a similar meaning? (regarding Nobunaga line)

The kurapika line did not matter and I like the change, because he does not need much dialogue to show how craze he is.

100%. Actually, the 1999 series censored direct references to death (in language) quite frequently.

As for Kurapika's line, it may not have mattered to you...but it did to me. Take that as you will. It's also worth mentioning that in the manga, Kurapika punches Zenji because the latter implies that the former is Nostrade's prostitute. A line about "sucking off your limp master" is changed to "lick your master's boots" in the anime.

Kurapika's line was not much when translated into English, so it's easy to not be bothered by the change, but in Japanese, it sounded so absolutely awesome, I would have missed a lot if I didn't get to hear it.

There's a goof in Madhouse's adaptation. Kurapika still have his chains on his hands. How did the Phantom Troupe not notice it? In the manga and Nippon's adaptation he did not have them.

As far as I'm concerned, the OVAs were a definite step up from the original series in terms of image quality. There's not much to be said for Kurapica's characterization since the OVAs scenes match the manga more accurately, which is my prime criteria for judging a series.

We will see as time goes on if Saga decided to stick to the manga characterizations or forced himself to adapt Furuhashi's "image" for the sake of continuity.

Hmmm... I didn't know Shizuku was going to die. Since chances are she'll avoid that prophecy, what do you think "a room filled with black merchandise" means?

Maybe it's their current hideout filled with the stolen auction goods.

Thank you so much Shinobi for always doing these comparisons. I always look forward to them.

I kinda wish the Phantom Rouge movie were more about what was really supposed to happen with the Troupe if they weren't able to avoid the prophecy. Like, I would love to see how Shizuku, Shalnark and Pakunoda would die under the circumstances that they were supposed to be in.

Spoiler:


Although I'm aware an alternative retelling of the Phantom Troupe arc would be boring to some, I guess.

Sheena Ringo (Japanese female rocker most popular in late 90s)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ringo_Sheena
Given the height of her popularity around the time of the release of that chapter and that mole on her face, that's probably her. Probably just Togashi being a fan.

Togashi also mentioned another Japanese female alternative rocker called Jun Togawa (she started in the 80s, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jun_Togawa) in YYH before. The character Itsuki mentioned about looking forward to buy her new album...such remark stunned the then-Spirit detective Sensui and ended up not killing Itsuki. Here's the connection: Sheena Ringo was always criticized for ripping off Jun Togawa (both have wild singing voice, unhinged persona, playing with parody of 'Showa period" Japanese iconography/music with a scandalous twist, and of course the most obvious one is dressing up as a nurse). So you can kinda see where Togashi's type lies. Oh yeah Jun Togawa's debut album was Insect theme too (Insect Woman....inspiration?).

Despite all the weirdness around Hisoka,he's smart as hell to come up with a fake prophecy that would fool Chrollo...
