Personally, I think Rock looks most impressive in the Madhouse version.

Hm... I'm starting to see a rather fundamental problem with a thread that receives few visitors. Not that I actually mind, but it's something I noticed.

See, this page has like, six reviews on it now. All of them with a lot of (animated) images.

Which kinda means I have to wait a while if I just wanna read the latest review.

Again, it's not like, killing me or anything. And I'm not sure what would solve the problem, other than scattering the review over several posts, but it's something I noticed.



EDIT: I just realise it doesn't even matter that much anymore, since the 1999 series ends after next week's episode.

NOW it's over, unless you want me to keep up comparing the manga for the rest of the series.

I thought about that, but it's actually a pretty easy problem to solve. You just click on the post # on the top right of whatever episode comparison you want to look at. Will just load up that one post which helps in avoiding all the pictures loading on the one page.

Personally, I'd like to see the comparison continue even if it's just against the manga. Much as it's been interesting to see how it differs from the old series, the comparisons to the manga have been interesting as well. But, it's not my free time being used to do this .

I would also gladly see the manga vs anime comparisons if you enjoy doing them.

Thanks for all the comparisons you did,I'm checking this thread every week

I will be honest, 2011 was not needed. I was watched the 1999 version like it was the bible of anime. Nearly one of my favorite series right next to the show that started it all Yu Yu Hakusho. Actually if a show should get a HD remake it should be Yu Yu Hakusho. I will rewatch that over.

I find myself with this anime skipping most of the episode content to get down to the one thing I like about this anime, the fight scenes. Ooo boy the fight scenes.

The problem I had with this anime, until episode 40. Was the very colorful pallette. The 1999 version was a lot darker, and maybe that was a tehcnology limit. But I like much darker much grittier animes. And wish the 2011 would have kept to that atmosphere of HxH.

So the one concrete critique you have about 2011 is the color palette, and everything else boild down to personal preference. Is that correct?

The best part here is that the color palette is a result of corrupted dvd's that were sent out of japan, and is not representative of the actual 99 version that aired there.

I am going to clarify a bit. When I say darker, I do not mean the color pallette in the 1999. I mean darker as in the way the anime was handled.

For example I have to find some cutscenes to explain what I am talking about. But the episode where Hisoka gets his card thrown into his shoulder blade.

I stictly remember in the '99 version the card had blood on it, the 2011 episode at least when I watched it had no blood.

I think the 2011 probably had that dark atmosphere that I was talking about better in the Phantom Troupe arch, which is my favorite arch.

The other thing were some of the things cut out. My Favorite fight scene of all time, especially in the first arch where they were learning to become Hunters, was Kurapica v.s. Hisoka. It just doesn't exist and they magically cut to Gon being injured. We don't even get to see Gon's fight only through a flashback, ooboy.

When I say darker I mean the atmosphere. The mood of the anime. I feel like this took on, a very 4kids approach to HxH, not as bad mind you. It's not as horrible as the abominaton of 4kids. But I like twisted anime, with dark moods.

The very few animes I watch that are light, are reverse harems its just treated better and those are guilty pleasures. And Gintama.

Otherwise you have to look at my anime history.

My entry anime was Akira, then it was Yu Yu Hakusho, Cowboy Bebop, and then Ghost in the Shell.

From there I went to Technolyze, Serial Experiment Lain, Sci-Fi Harry, Mushishi, Mononoke, Japanese Classic Horror, Ghost Hound, Ghost Hunt, Jigoku Shoujo, etc.

I watch very dark, heavy animes. But sometimes a man has to watch something fun and light which is reserved for reverse harems generally because I like the relationship aspect better than normal harems. To many big boobs and submissive females. And Gintama.
