I'm not sure how to feel, since I already know a lot of shonen that have movies. Here's hoping this'll be one of the good ones.

I take it that the new Hunter x Hunter anime is a great success then, financially?

I like it a lot, especially these last couple of months. I'm hoping it'll manage to animate all of the manga (or at least, all of the manga that has been published so far).

It'll be mediocre at best just like all the other movies that cash in on long running shounen anime. They're just long fillers.

i dont actually know how to feel about this. i welcome it, but shounen anime movies never seem to work out well. it will probably involve them walking around until gon and killua discover somthing random, than than shit happens.

Best news of the day, I must point out though how shocked I am at how early in the series this was green lit. After only 20 episodes it already has a movie announced, I guess that must mean from a ratings standpoint and finacial outlook that Hunter x Hunter (2011) is pretty successful. Either way, great news.

I'm glad, as Hunter x Hunter is really worthy of the same attention the likes of the big 3 get at the mo'.
Even if the movie is rubbish; lousy filer worthy material, something is better then nothing when it comes to aknowledgement?
Note: I am looking forward to it and do have a positive approach dispite the above^.

More HxH is always welcome, but I still hope it's good.
I'd love to see Yoshihiro Togashi involved in it.

Aesthetic value can be recognized or experienced, but it cannot be conveyed to those who are incapable of grasping its sensations and perceptions. To quarrel on its behalf is always a blunder.

Great, Finally after 14 years HxH get a Movie/Theatrical version. Definitely looking forward for this.

Btw "a brand new story"? So the story isn't taken from the Manga. In other words some kind of Filler.

Well, whatever I will watch it though. But I just wondering when in the timeline of HxH story they will take place. I guess it will be before the Ryodan arc.

Filler is only natural when you think about it. If they went out of their way to make it a canon movie, they'd be adding something that a lot of people wouldn't be able to see. It'd be essentially creating a plot thread that goes no where, unless you see that series in theaters. It'd also present a moment where a plot thread would just end because viewers could "see the dramatic conclusion in theaters."

The movie can be great if they get Togashi to work on it.

As for the new hiatus, fuck you Togashi.

The face that I made when I saw the news.

Though it would most likely be a filler I hope it stays true to its nature because they can't use that "it's on a morning timeslot" excuse anymore.

I don't think I've been this excited about anything for a while. I wonder what kind of story it's going to be. Fillers don't necessarily have to be bad... that Escher Tower story on the radio CD's was pretty awesome, for instance. I trust Madhouse to come up with something on par with that.

>mfw hiatus

It's either he's thinking of something for the next arc, he's helping with the movie
or he's really just taking a break since it's the longest he's went to come up with chapters.
Either way, I mad. So mad.

As much as I love Hunter x Hunter I don´t encourage shows running astray from their original material.

Wait what, hiatus? Fuuuuuuuuuuuu-
