Hunter X Hunter Remake First Impressions

Hunter X Hunter anime remake (2011) episode 1 has been released about 2 weeks ago, when I watch there is something different from the old Hunter X Hunter anime (1999). On the remake, seemed to give feel of a cheerful, this is different with old Hunter X Hunter anime (1999). On the old anime many sad scenes such as when aunt Mito crying and when Kitsume Guma killed by Kaito.
But my focus review is the Hunter X Hunter anime remake (2011) do not showing Kaito on the episode 1. If you ever watch the old anime, Gon know his father is a Hunter is from Kaito, but in the remake anime there is no Kaito so it would make the story is not clear or even slightly deviate from the original story (manga). Because how Gon know if his father is a hunter? Maybe the scene Kaito tell about Gon father will be told in some episode.
How Gon meet with Leorio and Kurapika in the anime remake  it is very same with how their meeting scene in the manga but different from the old anime, so at this point the old anime is different with the manga.
The conclusion is the Hunter X Hunter anime remake (2011), old Hunter X Hunter anime (1999) and the manga has difference in storytelling.

New Rurouni Kenshin Anime is Remake of Kyoto Arc

new kyoto arc rurouni kenshin

A few month ago I announced there will be the new Rurouni Kenshin anime series, on saturday Aniplex announced that the new Rurouni Kenshin anime series project will be two part of new Kyoto Arc (Shin Kyoto-Hen) OVA series. This means the new Rurouni Kenshin anime series will remake the Kyoto Arc and not the Jinchuu Arc. The first part will release in Japananese theaters in December.
I am very disappointed because I am hope the new Rurouni Kenshin anime is the Jinchuu Arc, when Kenshin Himura deal with Enishi Yukishiro. The best gift for 15th Anniversary Rurouni Kenshin that I can expect is the Rurouni Kenshin live action starring by Takeru Satoh.

High High High by Kasarinchu

kasarinchu


This summer, an anime television series titled Usagi Drop is airing. The anime that adapted from the manga has good story and animation graphic style. Not just that, the factor people love Usagi Drop because the Ending Theme Song. High High High by Kasarinchu is the ending theme song of Usagi Drop.
When I heard this song, I really like it and I think it is very suitable to become ending theme song of Usagi Drop. There is something interesting with High High High song, because the melody is came from human beat box. I did not expect at all the melody in High High High song is from human beat box.
Kasarinchu is music group with 2 members, Tatsuhiro who plays acoustic guitar and vocal, Kousuke who plays human beat box. Kasarinchu made it is debut in 2010.
Good song for good anime.


Sorry I did not find the lyric, if you have it, you can share to me.

Trigun Badlands Rumble Blu Ray is Available on Amazon

Trigun Badlands Rumble

After waiting a long time to see Vash the Stampede back in action, now he comes in an anime movie titled Trigun Badlands Rumble. Last time he was seen in the anime is thirteen years ago, when Trigun television anime series become very popular anime series at that time.
Thirteen years is a long time for Trigun fans to wait Trigun Badlands Rumble be made but because of that will make a sense of nostalgia for the audience who watch Trigun Badlands Rumble. Vash the Stampede is a superhero to someone when he was a child and Vash the Stampede is still to be a super hero when the child was growing up.


Plot Summary:  Vash the Stampede is a gunman on the run with a 60 billion double dollar bounty on his head which has made it difficult for him to go anywhere without being chased and shot at. Every town he ever visits ends up being destroyed because of his pursuers, but miraculously no one ever gets killed. Meryl and Milly are two insurance agents that have been sent to find Vash the Stampede and keep him under surveillance so no more damage is caused. Meryl, who leads the pair, refuses to believe that the man they have met can possibly be the legendary gunman. This spikey haired, gangly, young man is extremely friendly, a pacifist, hates blood and suicide, absolutely loves donuts, and is a dork and a crybaby (far from a notorious outlaw). But there is more to Vash and his past than meets the eye. (ANN)
