Just Watch the 2011 Reboot
13 March 2019 | by rrfpaf-99858See all my reviews

If I was introduced to Hunter through the 1999 anime, I would have stopped watching. Many people say the story gets better as it goes (and it does) but the pacing is aweful. Too much time on too little progress. The 2011 reboot fixes the pacing problem, cuts out unnecessary info, has better character development, has a far superior soundtrack, and emphasises Gon's over the top optimism. This version lacks a punch when Gon is angry because he is close to lifeless most of the time, but with the reboot centralizing Gon's happy spirit, when he's sad or angry it's almost a shock. So, watch the 2011. That's it.
