  1. Iwoklas. <3 Finally, Hunter x Hunter is coming back. Now the only question is, is it starting from where it last left off, or is it going all the way back to the beginning?

  2. Updated post. New anime is a retelling of the story from beginning with new staff and cast. Madhouse studios. To begin 10/02.

  3. Hmm. That can go both ways, can’t it? Retelling the story from the beginning… I hope that this time, they finish the anime with a conclusive, firm ending.

  4. OMG I TOOO HAPPY NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TT^TT  It’s back !!! I just hope their face ( Kurapika and the other ) Is still same/ good :D 

  5. I never paid any attention to this the first time around, but it certainly seems to have a following.  After my recent experience of loving Hikaru no Go after ignoring it, I think I’d better check H x H out.

  6. Loved the original series, and I kinda wish they’d just decided to continue that, but still, I can’t wait for this second series!!
    (My main concern is actually the voice actors. The first series’ Japanese voice actors were perfect for their roles, and this new series will inevitably we compared to the old one… fingers crossed that they find some pretty good ones!!)

  7. I am a huuuge fan of H x H, and can’t wait for the new series to come out… But I swear, if they ruin it, I may have to jump a plane to Japan and slice a few heads off.

  8. Whuu so exited!
    I don’t mind it starting from the beginning, I just hope it’s good. The voice changes can be a hard blow though… I’m gonna cry if HisoHisos voice is not sexy :< (Hiroki was doing a too good job I think)

  9. omg! can’t wait to see this 1! but the sad thing is that the story is different right? i’m kinda hoping that the story will continue what happened at the greed island..

  10. i really like dis anime.. the best anime for me.. i hope that they continue the story till the end.. in behalf of my city and my friends that also love this anime,, we support the staff and other personnel behind it.. more power guys.. GODBLESS!
