Which HxH arc was your favorite? And which version *2011, original, or manga*?
Gotta give it up too the Phantom Troupe arc. Just lots to like about it. It was a simple set up and when it first happens it takes all your impressions of what HxH was going to be about and throws them out the window. (In a good way.)
2011 is much more consistent and just better overall. The original has its moments though like pic related, and the Manga I've barely read a page of. I think the art style looks like shit and the mangaka has barely improved over the years. Not to mention all the hiatuses.
York Shin; 2011 and manga.
Never watched 1999 or the OVAs.
York Shin>CA>Election=Heaven's Arena>Greed Island>Exam
Though, I'll admit, I considered switching CA and the election and arena arc.
York New easily. Also that 10/10 OST. It may have been censored, but it had life. Hunter Exam second place.
Hard to say, but I think I'd go with the Hunter Exam. York New might be on the same level. It's hard to choose. Either way, I hold both arcs in high regard over everything else.
Still same as above, though I think the winner would be York New. Togashi was at his best with the art despite still being lazy with it. Though those first appearances are still something to see no matter what adaption it is. Pakunoda was actually a beauty compared to pic related. 2011 at least tried to get her nose right from most of her appearances.
By far. I fucking loved this arc, especially this series of episodes.
Greed Island made me drop the anime
I liked Greed Island only in the 2011 anime. The manga was alright and everyone knows the 2000 version was abysmal. Though dodge-ball was great. That position was genius.
You know, the CA arc felt too long to me in the manga (albeit, with a glorious finish), but Madhouse is doing an absolutely fantastic job with it so far. It's getting the atmosphere and sense of dread the arc is supposed evoke very spot-on.
