Man Hisoka took his creepiness to a new level, he was having an orgasm during a fight...
Anyway it was still a great fight and I'm excited because I keep hearing that the upcoming arc is the best in the series. I only hope they can keep the same level of animation quality for the upcoming fights.

So, we're finally at the Yorkshin arc.   Personally, I reccomend you guys get episodes 50-62 plus the first OVA of the first series since the old anime original had a fantastic adaptation of the arc.  The darker tone may cause a bit of whiplash from Madhouse's more upbeat version, but the intensity was pitch perfect for some of the brutality of the content.  The animation was stellar as well.

I recommend Mobile Suit, RX-0 and Unicorn from the Unicorn OST.

Madhouse better do this upcoming fight justice with all the hype it's been getting.

I doubt they'll ever be able to amount to the masterpiece which was the original 99 version of the fight (pretty much my favorite fight in any shonen anime).

Idk...the original just made things a lot more mature and darker

Ok the animation was superb and the fight was still awesome.

I still don't think the execution was quite as masterful as the original, but I wasn't really disappointed either. It was something new and still worked.

Though one thing that did bother me was the music selection..idk seemed a bit too overdramatic (I preferred the subtle music in the original).

Well, we're now on Greed Island.  I recommend you dial your expectations back a bit.  It's not bad, but it's very shounen action save the occasional maiming.

I recommend Mobile Suit, RX-0 and Unicorn from the Unicorn OST.

Nothing wrong with that. Togashi still makes this a very fun arc sort of in line with the tone we come to know in the Heaven's Arena arc.

So word on the street is that Madhouse is all clear to go for the Chimera Ant Arc. Let's expect a bloody good time. Greed Island will be done in eight (?) more episodes. It really flew by, but I liked it much, much better then the OVA version.

Still, enjoying it nonetheless.

Hisoka! You glorious bastard, you!
Notice how Gon and Killua's eyes go up. Wow! Hunter x Hunter should be Seinin sometimes.

EDIT: Also, Shuichi Ikeda will be playing Kite. Can Hunter x Hunter get any better?!

Excuse me for a sec........ THAT WAS ****ING EPIC! It was so EPIC, I won't censor my cursing (Although the mods did it for me). That's how EPIC it was. Gon... EPIC! Killua... EPIC! Hisoka... EPIC! Razor... EPIC! Nakama Power... EPIC! Animation... EPIC! BGM... EPIC! There is no way, NO WAY, in hell that didn't just surpass the OVA version... NO WAY! Hunter x Hunter... You were great in 1999, but here you have transcended yourself. MADHOUSE... You have my thanks. I quite literally laughed at how EPIC this was at times! Everyone and their mom's should be watching HxH right about now. There's no shounen quite like it.

EDIT: I see. Sorry about the curse... It was still very epic though.
