    So uh, hello guys. I'm making this thread because I had somethings in mind :booo:

    Like, when I was younger I saw Hunter x Hunter (almost every episode :lmao:) but it was the older version. And I wanted to know if the 2011 version is different (arcs and bla bla) or it just got better (in quality) ? :woot:

    I haven't watched Hunter X Hunter 2011 but when I asked people online if I should watch the old one first, they all told me that the 2011 version is better in almost every aspect. And Studio Madhouse animated it, they make really good stuff.

    Hunter x Hunter 2011 also goes further than the old version.

    ive watched HxH 2011 up till the Hiatus and i feel that the 2011 verison goes into more depth and has more Arc's than the older one, better animation obviously around a decade in time difference. only watch the 2011 one the older one is a waste of time in my opinion

    2011 version's better!
    The only thing that is apparently negative (according to other fans) is that the 2011 version, some character's are "cutified" you could say haha. Some people generally don't like how Gon and Killua doesn't look as (apparently) badass as their older version counterparts. It does seem so a bit though, but honestly I'm fine with it! I've only seen a few episodes of the older one. :D

    Another thing is that a few things/scenes are slightly censored. e.g. The fight between Killua and John the Dissector (in the Hunter Exam arc); In the older one IIRC Killua instantly takes the opponent heart's out, and the animation actually shows the heart clearly, whereas in the 2011 version, Killua does take the heart out, but this time, the heart is in a bag, but you can see it slowly beating and bleeding. Just little slight censoring like that here and there :)

    One thing to take note is that the 2011 version goes longer, meaning, it has more arcs. It is epic! must watch! :yaaa:

    2011 is better. It is following the Manga 100%, as the old version didn't do in some cases.
    And everything else the others have already said.

    I have to agree with others here.I loved the 2011 version.Btw my friend who watched older version too said that newer version omitted the fillers which were present in the older version.
    Tho he advised me to watch older too ,I ignored it .Maybe I'll give it a look later or maybe not .xD

    2011 version is awesome and Madhouse does an amazing job animating it! My only gripe is that the opening gets annoying after a while since they keep it throughout the entire run but no real complaints since the ending songs change / are badass and everything else is pretty consistent.

    i find the older version focused alot more on the scripted bits in the manga as hunter x hunter is very involved with the psychology of battles,

    the 2011 version seems to a bit rushed, but if you've allready read it its better

    Personally I would recommend reading it. It's action panels are some of the best. And some of the narration is so in depth that the anime just can't repeat it if you need to refresh your memory

    I did read and watch the 2011 version and I must I like it so much, same goes with the art and animation. Sadly, I haven't seen the older version. .__. Although I think it would be quite useless to read it now ..

    Of course 2011 version is the best. You'll see the a lot of difference to the old one when you watch the new version. But both are okay. :)
