I'm really liking this season of anime. It's amazing how many good anime there are this year, and I'm very impressed.

Been watching Hunter X Hunter (1999) and really liking it so far, Killua and Gon have me smiling from time to time, Leorio makes me want to hit him upside the head but I still laugh sometimes at him and Kurapika is pretty cool too.

Got done with Digimon Adventure Tri awhile back and it was pretty good.

Funnily enough Leorio and Kurapika were my favourites of the 4. Good show.
Yea they're pretty cool. Leorio reminds me of Brock sometimes lol.

Just got up to ep 50 now, and it's getting even better.

HxH is good muk man, do watch the 2011 version if you got the time too. Chimera Ant arc is one of the best written arcs in shounen imo and the final arc kinda ends things on a decent note, too.

I know, right?! Watching just Vinland Saga and Fire Force for now, but they're really good so far imo. Especially Vinland, every episode has been fantastic imo. Interested in picking up Dr. Stone and Kimetsu no Yaiba sometime soon too, heard they're really good.

I loved the ‘99 series, it was one of my first anime fandoms (the first I watched after Pokemon and Detective Conan in Arabic when I knew what anime was!).

There’s rarely filler, but when there is, it’s some of the best stuff the series has to offer because it’s so rich and necessary and beautiful (the episodes on Whale Island where Killua learns to value life and receives genuine maternal affection is so beautiful...).

The colour scheme is so moody and the way angles and perspective are used is so theatric, Nippon animation was also the studio responsible for World Masterpiece Theatwr anime and it shows—they make up for limited budgets (and off model art here and there) with sheer style and Ghibli-like attention to detail and human emotions and body language. I recommend their other anime like Romeo’s Blue Skies (warning: endearing and with a beautifully deep friendship like Gon and Killua’s, but VERY heavy, it’s about children working as chimney sweeps...)

(For a pokeani treat, hunt down the pilot episode of Hunter x Hunter to hear Gon voiced by Matsumoto Rica [Ash/Satoshi’s seiyuu!], it’s so cute and feels just like him, trying to save the fox-bear cub from being killed...)


It only goes up to Greed Island, so you gotta switch to HXH 2011 for Chimera Ant Arc and New Chairman Election Arc, but the crisp and clean modern art and animation is also beautiful, if less artsy and the angles more mundane (not as much unique direction, BUT very consistent, very detailed, and polished, Madhouse is fantastic in quality with some stylish scenes too!).

The score is okay or just bad in some parts though (there is this weird jaunty piece they use while awful things are happening, like people being hunted in Chimera Ant Arc which is dissonant in a funny way but I don’t think it’s intended, it’s such a bleak arc...).
“Your most important friend is not here right now, but please aim for that promise and that same dream.
No matter how small your strength is, even to the point of helplessness, please believe in the day our promise will be fulfilled.“

Binge watched Panty & Stocking yesterday with a friend. That show was way better than it had any right to be. It is a love letter to all forms of animation. Really weird but really fun.
It's quite the ride with an amazing soundtrack, IMO, and it is very much a love letter to animation as a whole.

The soundtrack was soooo good. I loved Fly Away the most but all the other songs were amazing too.

Fly Away is my favorite as well currently, and I've alternated between that and Fallen Angel for favorite since I first listened to the soundtrack 7 years ago. Teddyloid is an electronic music wizard.

A bit of a shame it didn't do well in Japan (at least, iirc that it didn't, could be recalling wrong), meaning we won't be getting a second season.

Fallen Angel is definitely a good choice and is a close second for me that's for sure.

Yeah from what I've heard the show was mostly made when the creators were drunk so it was obviously a lot more vulgar. I've heard some rumors that it was meant to be a more western approach to anime, hence the rampant vulgar jokes and more Powerpuff Girls style, but idk if that's true. If it is though it might make sense that it didn't fly well in Japan.

I do know it was relatively controversial worldwide though because... well you've seen the show. There were some hints back in like 2015-2016 that something was brewing but unless something's come up in the past few days since I looked, there's nothing on a second season, which is kind of sad because that ending left us on a wild cliffhanger.

I don't recall the drunk bit, but I didn't do any research before watching, I just watched it because friends liked it.
