I want to get into HxH.

Whats the best way? Should I read it? Should I watch the original anime? Or should I watch the 2011 anime?
>>
Watch 2011 anime. The manga is horribly drawn.
>>
All of them
>>
The anime fucks up on Gon's reason for becoming a hunter but other than that it's a pretty spot on adaptation.
>>
It's an emotinal roller coaster OP so be ready.

Everything is good except the greed island arc I didn't like that shit at all.

It was Yu Gi Oh wanna be and that turned me off.
>>
2011
>>
>>102189821
not OP, but this thread has inspired me to start watching 2011.
And I don't know if that is good or bad.
>>
>>102190704
Just leave /a/ and watch it right now and then make a thread later.
>>
>>102190437
>Durr it had cards in it so it was Yu-Gi-Oh!
>>
>>102190848
Yes.
>>
>>102190332
Never knew that. What's his actual reason?
>>
>>102191293
Kite
>>
>>102191293
He was inspired by Kite. None of that "I wanted to see what's so great about being a hunter" crap. It's the reason he's so emotional in the current episodes, because Kite is more important to Gon than how the anime showed him, which was basically "oh you're that guy I met that one time".
>>
>>102191293
Read the first chapter its pretty self contained.
>>
not op, but i've also been looking at starting hxh. i don't read any shonen mainly because lol 300 chapters nothing happend. is hxh like that at all? should i just read it? any alternative shonen that isnt shit recs? i'd rather avoid the big 3 for obvious reasons.
>>
>>102191474
shut the fuck up you fucking faggot
>>
>>102189821
Follow my advice OP, watch the classic one to episode 70 then continue watching from the 2011 one from the episode 59. You will enjoy more that way.
>>
>>102191376
Yeah, that's a pretty big thing to miss. And yeah, that would make all the shit that happened to Kite a lot more impactful.
>>
Is the 2011 anime better than Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood?
>>
>>102191877
I'd say a lot better, but I wasn't a huge fan of Brotherhood where as HxH is in my top 10.
>>
>>102189821
Read the first chapter of the manga and then watch 2011.
>>
Is HxH better than YYH?
>>
>>102191877
No.
>>
Watch old anime and the first OVA, then start the new anime at episode 59 and treat it like a sequel.
>>
>>102192753
I like HxH better, but they're pretty different. Different tastes could easily like YYH better.
>>
Fuck the old anime. Why do people recommend it when the 2011 version is better in every way?

Anyway I found marathoning the series to be fairly painless. It's actually paced pretty well to where you won't feel like you're soldiering through a bunch of pointless episodes.

If you're into the show after that point you should branch off where the manga picks up and start reading that.
>>
If you're a strict anime watcher, the 2011 version is fine, covers everything and the pace is quick. I prefer reading manga to catch up on series though.

>>102193361
I like the extra episodes in the hunter exam arc, and hisoka is creepier. But there's no huge reason to hate 2011, just nostalgiafags.
>>
>>102193361
>Why do people recommend it when the 2011 version is better in every way?

>bad music
>bad direction
>sakuga is few and far between
>same shit opening for the whole series
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uw8Io09FeL4

It got a lot better around the Greed Island arc though.
>>
>>102193572
Well... actually you do make a good point. Fuck the music and the fucking opening, never really liked it from the start.
>>
>>102193361
>Why do people recommend it when the 2011 version is better in every way?
Because people have different opinions on it. I recommend it for those who intent on reading or watching 2011 as well. But to people who just want the whole story, I say just go with 2011. I generally warn them about Kite beforehand too.
>>
Other than the few chapters where Togashiro is just fuck-all, the manga is way better than the anime. Covers a lot more shit than the anime ever does.
>>
I think Chafurin did a good job doing Nagai's voice. Hope they hire him for Netero.

Watch the 2011 version. It's frickin beautiful
>>
The only thing I dont like about the 2011 is that they use OST that doesn't fit the mood, in the earlier arcs.
>>
>>102191474
wan piss
10/10
"would a Monkey D"

but seriously, One Piece just keeps getting better, and while at times it might seem like there is a lot of filler, quite a lot of it is linked to later on, so in hindsight there isn't that much, especially if you skip the anime only filler arcs, which aren't very common.
>>
>>102191877
>Fullmetal Alchemist Botherhood

Botherhood
>>
Just watch the 2011 version. You won't regret it.
>>
Reading the manga is the best option. Watching the old version up to the end of York Shin and then the new one starting from there is the second best option.
>>
2011 anime is pretty faithful but it censors somethings. 1999 anime has better highs than the 2011 anime but it is trash in the end. Manga is alright, but be prepared for WORDS WORDS WORDS and the travesty that is Greed Island arc.
>>
When will there be an English dub?
>>
>>102198353

There was nothing in the 1999 anime that comes close the last week's episode.

You 1999 fags are so fucking obnoxious.

Old Manga if you can stand the art, if you cant then just watch the new version, then youll get hooked enough youll read the manga anyway, then watch old version just if Kurapika is your favorite character.
>>
>>102191376
>None of that "I wanted to see what's so great about being a hunter" crap.

But that is the reason, Kite taught him about Hunters so he was the one who gave him a reason, but the reason is exactly the same.

>Not liking Departure
>Not liking Legend of the Martial Artist Even though it's played all the time
I will fight you

No it didn't.
