How would one go about rewatching Hunter x Hunter now?
Hunter Exam definetely old anime.
i dont care much about the 2nd arc.
But tower and yorkshin arc. old or new?
Alternating between old and new makes no sense.
Pick one and stick to it.
I love the old anime, but I realize it's mostly nostalgia value.
The new anime is superior in all arcs ot be honest.
Read the manga. Watch the old one. and Catch up to the new one. You can do it in a week if you try.
>rewatch the best filler parts of 1999
The tower arc is much better in the 2011 adaptation. The yorkshin arc is good in both but a different experience for each one
Hunter exam is pretty bad in the new adaptation(mostly due to the shitty OST), but everything else is better.
I still like the old one better... even if it´s not that good of an adaptation from the manga. I think the characters and the rhythm of the old one generated more empathy.
That said Yorsk shin is a difficult one... the first one is most emotive and i actually like the fight between kuroro and the Zoldgics better and the fight between Kurapica and Ubo... but Kurapica hability and some other stuff is better explained on the new one.
Samewise the new one nailed Chimera arc perfectly.
Greed Island is the worst arc, but it's slightly more bearable in the 2011 version thanks to the faster pace and better fight animation.
they're both great but i kinda like the 2011 hisoka more
The tonal shift to and from it throws everything out of whack, it's another arc that's 80% them sitting around and training (which killed the momentum of the Spider arc), Genthru is not interesting or all that threatening, and Biscuit is a horrible and annoying character.
Don't be a casual, rewatch both.
dude look like a lady
