Yes! It's the arc I've been waiting for.

Hunter Exam introduced Hunters and the world they live in.
Zoldyck Estate was a bit of a side trek but it helped define Killua's character.
Heaven's Arena introduced the basics of Nen.
Yorknew fleshed out Nen and re-introduces brutality with a vengeance.
Now it's time for Greed Island, the arc which is mostly centered around Hatsu. Yes, this is my favorite arc. The concept of Nen truly fascinates me, and Greed Island is all about it.

It looks like the Huncyclopedia is replaced by the Greed Island Tutorial. This mirrors the manga. During the Yorknew arc at the end of most chapters, we got one page dedicated to a single character and their powers. Too bad a lot of them didn't get the FULL explanation that the manga readers got. Most notably Chrollo's ability. It had quite a few rules and caveats which aren't apparent from the story.

Starting from the Greed Island arc, these pages were instead dedicated to explaining Greed Island's game mechanics. Mostly item descriptions. GI has a LOT of items that never really were explained well in the actual story.


...Lets just hope this won't start another discussion where people say enhancer nen is for idiots, and the other schools are much better.

Well, you've got to admit, if you're going to be an idiot and get into fights, it's probably better to be an enhancer. The other schools might require you to be clever.

Except maybe emission. "Stay away and get them from a distance" isn't especially complicated either.

From the OP looks like no more Leorio and Kurapika for a while. We get a girl now. Glad Hisoka will be appearing. They have to change that song for the OP though. Liked the new ED, but not as much as i liked the previous 2, though it will probably grow on me. Can't wait to see the results of their training.

I can't really refute that, but I can point out that it doesn't make enhancer worse than the other schools though. It's all about exploiting your personal strengths to their fullest, while at the same time compensating for your weaknesses.

True. The "problem" with enhancement isn't that it's weaker. It's just that it looks less fun. Less magic-y.

I find the the visual keeps getting funnier and over the top ridiculous with the same music. This time, they have almost the entire new casts showing off their powers for no apparent reason except for rule of cool. I LMAO when I saw the "you can smile" part.

Looking forward to the new chick in the op/ed, definitely would be nice to have a female character introduced at this point.

Also i take it Kurapica and the other guy (omg cant remember his name lol) aren't involved in this arc?

What I meant to point out was that a good VA-talent will be utilized to his/her maximum potential when they are working with certain production company. Madhouse is one of them. I've been hooked on Sawashiro since her voicing in Rozen Maiden as Shinku.

Unfortunately, green island arc was first than both Yugioh nor Hack. If i remember correctly, The hack project game was released 2002 and i believe that the Hunter X Hunter manga was serialized during 1998. So yeah, you get the point.

Has it been announced anywhere how many episodes will HxH have or will it AGAIN end after Greed Island Arc? Now that my favourite arc, Greed Island is here, I'm pretty excited to see it again .. but .. Also rather disappointed if I need to expect for the anime to end after it.
