    This new Hunter × Hunter anime was announced in July 2011. It is a complete reboot of the series starting from the beginning of the manga and following it faithfully, unlike the first anime. It's directed by Hiroshi Kōjina, produced by Madhouse, and features scripts by Jun Maekawa and character designs by Takahiro Yoshimatsu. Instead of having the old cast reprise their roles for the new adaptation, the series features an entirely new cast to voice the characters.

    The story begins with a young boy named Gon Freecs, who one day discovers that the father whom he thought was dead, is in fact alive and well. He learns that his father, Ging, is a legendary "Hunter", an individual who has proven themself an elite member of humanity. Despite the fact that Ging left his son with his relatives in order to pursue his own dreams, Gon becomes determined to follow in his father's footsteps, pass the rigorous "Hunter Examination", and eventually find his father to become a Hunter in his own right.


    This is a whole new transformation for the 1999 original series and I suggest that Hx H fans should watch this because it explains so much things that they haven't on the original series. Plus, everything is modernized (you'll see what I mean once you've watched it) and you'll have fun comparing the differences of the original and this new version. :)

    I would say this is better than the original..but I prefer the other Hisoka.
    There isn't much of a difference though.

    They really out-done themselves with the music and animation within the past few weeks.
    + I like how they explain the concept of Nen in every episode.
    It took me awhile to understand it in the original.

    You thinks so as well huh? I've discussed that with my sister and we agreed that the Hisoka before is much more entertaining. Well, the new Hisoka is cool and all (and a major perv) but the old one (especially in Greed Island) is better.

    RE: Hunter x Hunter 2011

    Indeed. I think it's better than the original because of animation and music. I also did not understand the concept of Nen when I read the manga. Good thing they explained it pretty well in the anime.

    And, in my opinion, I like the Hisoka now than before.

    I really love the 1st opening song "Departure" and the ending song "Just Awake".
    :D

    " Departure"

    Hunter x Hunter 2011 is amazing. I love all the arcs, but my favorite are Yorknew City and Chimera Ant :P

    Yorknew City best act!

    Nice pace in 2011 version, but I think i still preffer the original (greed island better in the this)

    But yea Hisoka original > New Hisoka, IMO

    Hope we get more than just chimera act, but I doubt it
    And wished the manga wasn't stopped :(
