Remake of the 1999 TV series of Hunter x Hunter based on the manga by Togashi Yoshihiro.
A Hunter is one who travels the world doing all sorts of dangerous tasks. From capturing criminals to searching deep within uncharted lands for any lost treasures. Gon is a young boy whose father disappeared long ago, being a Hunter. He believes if he could also follow his father's path, he could one day reunite with him.
After becoming 12, Gon leaves his home and takes on the task of entering the Hunter exam, notorious for its low success rate and high probability of death to become an official Hunter. He befriends the revenge-driven Kurapica, the doctor-to-be Leorio and the rebellious ex-assassin Killua in the exam, with their friendship prevailing throughout the many trials and threats they come upon taking on the dangerous career of a Hunter.
Ep1 is up, waiting for subs. I hear its really fast paced.. at least Ep1.
Edit: Subs are up.
Edit2: Watched it. Loved it. Awesome first ep1. Fairly faced paced but who cares!? The faster it gets to even more awesomeness, the better!
Ending. It's a somewhat of a metal/screamer... kinda.
Nice first episode. As much as I like the remake, I don't really see much point to it. The manga has a pretty rocky schedule so seeing the remake end in the same arc as the previous series wouldn't surprise me. But who cares, glorious new animation makes me a happy camper.
Probably removed due to copy right, i'll fix it later if I feel like it. (Lol).
Anyways, a lot of people are raging how they cut off part of the 2nd test (sushi part). Personally, I don't mind since I do want them to hurry up with the test. I wasn't much fan of the test rather I started enjoying after the test, especially when Gon finally gets a fighting style, which won't be for a long... long time.
So for those of you that have watched the original and this one, should I consider watching the original one? Or should I just watch the new one? (That is if they have the same content)
It's too early for me to compare the two but definitely give the original a watch. Like Paul said, it picks up after the Hunter exam and they start learning Nen. Since we haven't gotten that far yet it isn't really a fair comparison. There's also this in the original:
