    Question HunterXHunter

    I have been watching this series on Adult Swim/Toonami. They are through at least the sixth episode. I always give a series at least 4-5 episodes before I give up on it. I have seen several series which turned out to be great despite the first one or two episodes being crap.

    Well, nothing much of interest has occurred in the first six episodes. Plus the entire series seems pretty juvenile. My question is, for those who have seen the entire series, is this one really worth staying with? Does anything non-cliche happen? Does it at any time rise above the early teen level? Or should I just give up on it now?

    It's definitely worth sticking around. I'm, not gonna lie, it starts off slow and it seems childish at first, but I get a better. If you need more proof remember the mangaka who made this anime also made YuYu Hakusho, which is regarded as a classic. Need even more proof it's not as childish as it seems, just search up Killua heart scene on youtube.

    OK, I will stick with it for now. But comparing it to Yu Yu Hakusho is not very encouraging. I was into that series at first, but during the third or fourth story arch, I lost interest.

    It can grow slow during the longer arcs, but in general it's really solid. I recommend at least starting the battle tower arc.

    It depends @PictureGuy whether or not you're watching the 90's version or the remake done in 2011.
    Although i've only glanced at the earlier adaption, apparently the more recent animation is superior in both story telling in animation. 8)

    I hate to tell you but, the story picks up later in the anime. The first few episodes are indeed a bit of a chore. If i were in your position i would drop it, if you didn't like it so far. Because trusting someone else who's saying that it'll pick up later is quite a big commitment since you'll have to plow through like 8-12h's of anime before you can decide for yourself.

    Yes! HunterXHunter is a great anime. You can watch with 2011 version, the pace is actually a bit quicker.

    I am watching the 2011 version, I think. That is the most recent one, right? The one showing on Toonami? I am very close to losing interest in it.

    Seriously? I'm expected to stay with the series that long?

    Last week's episode ended with a bit of a cliff hanger. I will see tomorrow night how it is resolved. But I am warning you, I am very close to giving up on the series. A half-a$$ solution and I turn it off for good.

    I am sticking with the newer series for at least one more week. The last episode was not so bad, but something interesting had better happen soon. I am on the border line on this one.

    I now officially give notice that I am giving up on HunterXHunter. Anything that is interesting in this series is usually dropped by the next episode. And the characters are just to cartoonish. OK, so anime is a cartoon. I just don't find any of the characters believable.

    For an anime that seems to do everything right, it isn't talked about a lot at a popular level. Neither has it been successful in garnering a fan base similar to that of SNK or SAO.
    Manga raw? Do you love it? I am very love it, insteresting comic from Japan, It is a raw manga, means scan of manga, if you can do it, also you can earn a lot of money.

    The key difference is that Togashi takes a break because of his health or most probably because Ishida killed his favorite TG character.

    I understand why you gave it up. To be honest, I probably wouldn't have stuck through the arc of the Hunter Test if I had to watch it weekly.

    However, I will say I just completed the Chimera Ant arc and I will say that I was blown away by certain events in the arc, not excluding its conclusion. I've watched/read so many battle Shonen now, and I've grown tired of many of the cliches used in them, so for me to say that, it is quite something.

    I will say that in that arc alone a fair number of the preconceived notions I had coming into the series were proven wrong. lol
