Episode 14 – Hit x The x Target
I know that many of you had probably thought that I’ve dropped this series… Well, that is not exactly true.
Although I’ll continue to blog this series, this is not a high priority on my list and the reviews might get delayed as Sunday seems to be the day where most of the shows that I am blogging come out on. =) (Also, I am busy preparing for my 3 weeks vacation to Singapore. 😄 Am so excited =D)
So this episode goes straight into the next segment of the Hunter exam, and for those who have seen the ’99 series, you might be scratching your head wondering whatever happened to the ship arc.
Episode 11 – Trouble x With The x Gamble
Sorry for the late review! My internet had been giving me issues all of yesterday and by the time things started working, it was pretty much time to sleep. =(
So this is the long awaited deciding episode for the 2011 series – featuring Killua’s battle.
This episode will decide whether Madhouse will do a good job of animating the violence and gore presented in the original Hunter x Hunter manga, or if they’ll seal their fate as a sanitized version of the original story.
What did you say in the previous episode Majitani? You Surrendered? Oh No! 😄
Episode 10 – A Chance x To x Reach Out
aka We x Screwed Up x Big Time
This episode finally shines the spot light on Leorio and takes him out of his somewhat “useless” image.
The funny thing with this episode was that last week had made a critical error that had rendered the whole context of this episode baseless.
If you were to look at the ’99 medium and the manga, in both versions, Majitani had not been able to finish his sentence before Kurapica had “knocked him out”. But as the above screen capture proves, this 2011 version made the mistake of yelling out his surrender for the whole world to hear.
Look ma! I’m blue!
I think you know when your plastic surgery had gone terribly wrong when you walk out looking blue. =P
Episode 09 – Careful x of x Prisoners
The battle continues with Gon and Kurapica stepping up to the plate this week.
At this rate, this segment of the tower would be over by the next episode with Killua and Leorio being the only ones left to battle.
Episode 08 – Solution × Is × Majority Rules?
“Roar!!” says the dinosaur at the start of the introduction.
Sadly, the show has decided to go down the path of dragging fight scenes out, the same way many other Shonen shows do.
Episode 07 – Showdown x On x The Airship
(This is so not 3 words =P)
We finally get an episode that places more of a focus on Killua and Hisoka – my two favourite characters of the series. \(^-^)/
Although this episode takes a break from the actually exams, it doesn’t mean that we are not going to get anything substantial out of the episode.
Episode 06 – A x Suprising x Challenge
It’s that time of the week for a new Hunter x Hunter 2011 episode.
There really isn’t too much to say about this series as the story progresses because having seen the ’99 series means that the plot is not really going to be too refreshing to watch. As like with many other long running series, it takes some time to get into the rhythm of things and I think that with the exams finally starting to heat up, things would become more and more entertaining to watch.
Episode 05 – Hisoka x is x Sneaky
This is probably the first time where I actually wished the pacing of the episode was faster.
We have yet to see the end of the First Hunter Exam despite the fact that it had started at the end of Episode 03.
Slow down… not all of us are as healthy as you
Episode 04 – Hope x and x Ambition
Stage one of the Hunter Exams has started and everyone’s running full blast ahead!
Episode 03 – Rivals x For x Survival
This episode had slowed it’s pace down by quite a bit as compared to the last couple of episodes and is heavier on the dialogue.
The episode covers chapter 5, most of chapter 6 of the manga, and it covers half of episode 6 of the ’99 series.
