How much does it cost for the directors to produce one episode? It must be alot since every episode seems like a movie with all the angles and motion animation being done. Plus, most popular shonen anime's don't necessarily have that much quality production but it is really odd that HxH breaks the typical shonen anime by having psychological focus and more mature content than the norm.

It's surprising that even though Gon is naive, he understand that he can't save everybody and does go for a bloodlust kill.

Isn't that a good sign that HxH has excellent animation quality? Hopefully they'll set the trend of high-quality animation for other shounen animes.

I'm not sure about the kind of budget it has per episode but I'm really pleased with its quality. When it comes to shounen animes whereby there's plenty of lightning quick fighting and action going on, I would like to see everything clearly rather than have the same few repeated clips (coughdragonballcough) and blurred moves.

There's no such thing as too good a quality for animation, especially for one of the HxH calibre.

I think you should compare HxH with +100 shonen, like One Piece, Toriko and Bleach

I think HxH has a better overall animation quality than almost all +100 animes, only Naruto Shippuden is better than HxH

they never mentioned long runners, they were mentioning shonen so I compared to other shonen... an also they were saying that HxH was apparently "movie quality", there are some low budget movies that look like shit but then there are high budget movies that look like this
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5JMZm5m1o8
certainly HxH doesnt look like that

also looking better than Naruto isn't something to brag about since Naruto animation is average for the most part

None of these look impressive in the least. Without the cardboard cut-out looking animation and one impressive shot, that lost canvas is one step above being stills.

Brotherhood at best is as good as hxh at best, some very impressive scenes, but being longer, hxh offers more.
Also BH lacks the detail HxH employs, like the effects of clouds, consistent showings of Nen and lack thereof according to the situation, and few others that would be spoiler-y now.


Nothing you showed had the continuous, fast paced, fully choreographed awesomenesd that aas episode 35.
Why fast paced? Because your posted shows would take two attacks and stretch them out in slow motion for a duration as long as this fight.
The gon vs hisoka exchange was like what? A minute? And had more impressve animation.
Even that food fight at episode 53 had better animation.

id look forward for that food fight then, hopefully id have better animation that Kastro vs Hisoka an be FMA Brotherhood level
btw Gon vs Hisoka lasted more than half an ep not a minute, well the actual fight lasted like a 4 minutes or so the rest was just them talking or just staring, fast paced indeed

I was talking about the exchage at the start, it was 1 minute yet compressed so much good animation thanks to being fast paced. Regularly, if an anime even bothers to produce this, it would slo-mo the hell out of it.

That's what I meant by fast paced. As for the general meaning regarding the episode, to me pacing is the flowrate of info, so even talking can be fast pacing as long as it is something good.

I wish they continued the Lost Canvas...

Anyway, the clips that silversaint posted are very beautiful (especially the BH one). Lost Canvas had a very beautiful art style so that's why the animation looked so good, be it a whole bunch of slo-mo. There were better scenes in the show, I think.

With that being said, HxH's animation only gets better as it progresses. But even then, I was always impressed by how good the animation was from the start, shit got sooo much better in the Yorknew Arc. And then there's episode 126.

OT: It's overall good, but I don't I think I was impressed by any animation any where. Looks okay for the most part.

yes it is something to brag about considering it's been going 120+ episodes and hasn't dropped even once. On it's own, the show isn't always super amazing but it's consistently good.

I do remember, a long while back though, that people were saying Hunter x Hunter had little money involved. Honestly, to this day I'm not sure how they could think that. Tell me, has there been a moment of off character modeling throughout its entire run. And all of that judicial use of Sasuga. That is not a sign of a show with little money. It's even more impressive by the fact that its been on late night for over five months now and still no real big signs of decrease besides recaps.

So yeah I find it impressive.

Such a fangurl comment to make: "I know it's not 'high' quality but it's dependable in its presentation of average to good quality over a long length of time (hasn't dropped to 'bad' yet!); means its brag-worthy". No.

I'm at episode 110 and it keeps making me surprise how the slow motion effects and the whole sequence are so well paced.

I've never really experienced a dull moment where the character's aren't moving since the 100 mark.

Does anybody know the ratings for Hunter x Hunter because I believe that it's not even shown on the weekends.

Yeah, it no longer shows on the weekends for whatever reason. If it means anything, the score of the show on this site only went up as the CA arc progressed.

No I'm saying when the show started in 2011, I was checking the site during the GI and it was around 8.3-8.5, given the initial backlash I can only imagine it was in the high 7.something.

Oh okay, then I don't know lol. So sad that that's how people felt towards this adaptation when it's so damn good. Just look at the old thread about whether they should watch this (2011) or the original (1999), so many hateful comments. But I'm glad that people actually appreciate it now.

It seems that you didn't get my point. I wasn't talking about preferences or quality but mainly on the vast potential of the world. One Piece is an adventure genre just like HxH is.

But seriously, Brotherhood was amazing. Again, you're just exaggerating everything. Almost everyone and their mother jizzed their pants when watching 126 and here you are saying, "I don't think I was impressed by animation anywhere" lol okay. (then again, the animation isn't even what made the episode so good)

Oh okay, my bad. Personally I'm not interested in the adventure aspect, so we will see what the Dark Continent is like after more chapters.

Oh. I thought the quote was broken. I still don't understand what you are getting at. I think HxH is better than FMA:B in every aspect. The fact that HxH animation didn't impress is kinda irrelevant. Although I did like the animation in Kurapika vs Uvo, if I remember correctly. The animation in King vs Netero wasn't really that great, only above average, it's certainly not the best animated fight in HxH.

Nah, that was for your comment about HxH & FMA:B but if that's how you really feel then fair enough. I've yet to fully watch ep. 126 but just seeing this was already impressive. I also have to watch Uvo vs. Kurapika again, that fight gave me chills.

8.7 to 8.89

At the time, ratings were terrible, I remember that when the hunter exam arc ended, HxH was not even #700 in popularity and probably was #180 in top anime. Only when Yorknew started the ratings started to get better, like, there was a point in which every week the score got higher, but back then I wasn't following it periodically, so I don't know how high became the score at the end of Yorknew. At one point, during G.I. arc, I was so impressed by how the ratings were growing I had to take a screenshot http://i.imgur.com/3UrK8Va.jpg (this was when the episode 74 came out)
After that, periodically, I took screenshots of the stats and the result was impressive. Then, Chimera Ant Arc started and the ratings had a boom, a lot of people started watching this remake and almost every day the score got higher. Like, this screenshot was taken after the episode 86 came out http://i.imgur.com/SUTUeAr.jpg

After that, we all know what happened and the score became so high that there was no point in taking other screenshots to make comparisons.
You may think I'm crazy, but I just love HxH and I'm so proud that, finally, people is appreciating this show as it deserves.
Also, I always talk about this to my friends and, thanks to this, I convinced a lot of people to watch HxH. :)
