One whole minute of flawlessly executed anime fighting.
One wonderful minute of holding my breath in pure awe.
This marks the moment when Hunter x Hunter (2011) started doing The Right Things™
When it comes to the fights in Hunter x Hunter (2011) (the few ones there are), or any important moment for that matter, Madhouse has always flexed its muscles and provided some of the most well-made scenes of the year.
They have superb choreography and cinematography, along with an impressive sense of weight in how the characters move. The music is also well-used in these scenes, something which cannot be said for the rest of the series. Everything is great and the animation is out of this world at times.
When I saw episode 35 of Hunter x Hunter I was not sure what I felt. But I think it was admiration in its purest form.
Then Madhouse re-did the feat in a later episode, once again making my jaw drop to the floor.
Madhouse, you rule.
You make Hunter x Hunter justice.
Maybe you should remake another shounen series too?
Two other great fights
These episodes were fantastic. I still liked the series beforehand, but there was definitely an improvement in overall quality even after these episodes aired. I seriously hope Greed Island can continue the trend.
Yeah, the quality definitely improved afterwards.
I’m really looking forward to Greed Island myself!
When Gon lands that one, brief punch, I couldn’t help but stare blankly in the silence and let out a roaring round of applause.
Pretty much ❤
