Be grateful they actually had the balls to show amputation on-screen and not hide the stumps. They even showed him stick his fingers inside his arm! Do you know how rare this thing became nowadays? Even adult anime shows get censored. Plus, it's not like he didn't bleed at all.


If you look here for an example, you can see some blood stains on the stumps


And here, you can see something flowing from the arm that looks like blood, but the lighting doesn't make that clear.



Hey! A toned down violence is better than omitting the whole thing, right?

I know all of this already. I guess I'm being a bit picky since it is my favorite series. :P

The level of violence for the Phantom Troupe arc will be fine.

"Following this cast announcement, they revealed that the Phantom Troupe arc would begin on the 15th of July. Not only that but the arc will mark a significantly more mature turn in the series’ tone and the level of violence will be increased as per the story of the arc."

AWESOME! Thanks for the news! You can already see from Kurapica's eyes on the PV that it may get darker already, but now it' pretty much confirmed? **** YEA!

The level of violence not being too toned down is good news, but I'm more worried about the direction and presentation the arc will receive. I hope the lighting will be akin to that one episode inside Killua's house, because in general the series has been a little too bright looking and York Shin definitely calls for a much darker presentation to go along with the change in tone.

It's also a shame it won't be getting its own OP like in the original series, which was one of my all time favorite OPs, but oh well.

Well, they will probably change the opening in episode 50.
So, at least part of the arc will have a different opening.

I've always felt that the tone has been pretty appropriate throughout this new anime adaption. MH seems very in touch with the manga and are adjusting the direction of the show for this upcoming arc accordingly, as it should be.
This news and the new soundtrack are a great testament to that.

Has it been confirmed that we won't be getting a new OP anytime soon?

It seems Madhouse is sticking with a new opening every 26 episodes. I'd prefer a brand new opening for the beginning of Yorknew but I guess we'll just have to wait until around episode 50

Great start to the YS arc, though the flashbacks at the beginning anoyed the crap outta me.

Finally!

I am glad there was no long seminare or a montage like during Gon/Kill learning Nen arc...

Don't think the old anime had small introductions for all the body guards.

Kurapika should of said, "kill", instead of "eradicate". sound more beastly!

and for the next episode and into the future! NO MORE GON AND KILLU! MORE FOCUS ON Kura!

So we finally get to see someone else for a change.
This time it's Kurapika.
Looks like he's a Conjurer, but wants to learn Enhancer technique too.
Kurapika sure has an interesting plan, but long term plan of revenge.

I don't think he tried to invoke "Never Say Die" though. I think he meant it more as "wiping them from existence", which realistically means killing them, I know, but it sounds more "rage-y".

Anyway, this episode was, in all actuality, one huge tease. Because everything was set up to show us Kurapika's ability, and of course the episode cuts off right at that moment.

Also, why didn't they showcase the abilities of the last two guys? That makes them seem rather expendable.



The episode IS, however, the first time when we have almost an entire episode of Kurapika in Vengeance Mode. Which isn't going to change any time soon.


Sasuke from the Naruto series was apparently based on this guy.

Just watched the episode 39 and it was good. But not as good as the previous serie, really.
The episode which open "Phantom Troup arc" from the previous series had some fillers but the atmosphere was really awesome.
Just watch episode 45 of the previous anime of Hunter x Hunter.

In the old episode, the soundtrack was really powerful and the design was brillant. In the new serie, I was a bit disappointed by the desgn, but it matched more with the manga design. The soundtrack is not really good, not as cool as the previous anime.

Some key moments of new episode/old episode:

Spoiler:


The previous seiyuu was really awesome with Kurapika, especially during this arc.

So yeah this episode 39 of HxH 2011 is good. Only good.
But the episode from the old serie was so awesome.

Well, it was predictable, the arc Phantom troup of the previous anime was so awesome and intense; it can't be as good.

never expected madhouse to hold a candle against 1999, and i'm fine with that really, but this was still disappointing as hell.

Really? Storywise it wrapped up all the important bits in one episode. Everything they skipped is fairly minor and not really important to the story at large, or can be told at a later stage.

Music... music in this episode was still pretty hit-or-miss though. A lot of it was forgettable, and the guitar during Kurapika's "I want to manifest a chain" explanation was completely out of place, but the Asian music for Haiku-guy fit like a charm.
