Hunter X Hunter(An overview)

If you are familiar with the anime world many people consider Dragon ball, Naruto and One Piece as the holy grail of Shounen anime/ manga many forget about a gem called Hunter x Hunter. This is an anime which is respected by it’s viewers and has been liked by everyone who has watched it. But a lot of time people hesitate to start a new series which is about 150 episode long. I am here to clear your hesitation about this wonderful anime that is Hunter x Hunter.

-What is the anime about?

Hunter x Hunter is set in a world where Hunters exist to perform all manner of dangerous tasks like capturing criminals and bravely searching for lost treasures in uncharted territories. Twelve-year-old Gon Freecss is determined to become the best Hunter possible in hopes of finding his father, who was a Hunter himself and had long ago abandoned his young son. However, Gon soon realizes the path to achieving his goals is far more challenging than he could have ever imagined.

Along the way to becoming an official Hunter, Gon befriends the lively doctor-in-training Leorio, vengeful Kurapika, and rebellious ex-assassin Killua. To attain their own goals and desires, together the four of them take the Hunter Exam, notorious for its low success rate and high probability of death. Throughout their journey, Gon and his friends embark on an adventure that puts them through many hardships and struggles. They will meet a plethora of monsters, creatures, and characters—all while learning what being a Hunter truly means.

-How is it different then other shounen?

-So Hunter x Hunter on surface looks really fun and colorful anime but it is something really really worse than that.(wont tell more because i don’t wanna spoil)

-What sets this apart?

– So a lot of times we expect something to happen in a certain way, but what if something exactly different happens? This is what Hunter x Hunter is all about, you can never anticipate things.

-what do i like in the anime?

The plot development is really good, the character development is on a complete different level. The most important are the villains in the anime, Hunter x Hunter is home to some of the most ruthless and gruesome villains i have ever seen. The arc’s in the anime are really good too.

This is the reason why everyone should at least once watch Hunter x Hunter.

Nanatsu no Taizai(The Seven Deadly Sin) review

The second season of Seven Deadly Sin is airing and people are saying that it is crazy good. So i decided to go and watch the first season and honestly it was good.
Synopsis
In a world similar to the European Middle Ages, the feared yet revered Holy Knights of Britannia use immensely powerful magic to protect the region of Britannia and its kingdoms. However, a small subset of the Knights supposedly betrayed their homeland and turned their blades against their comrades in an attempt to overthrow the ruler of Liones. They were defeated by the Holy Knights, but rumors continued to persist that these legendary knights, called the “Seven Deadly Sins,” were still alive. Ten years later, the Holy Knights themselves staged a coup d’état, and thus became the new, tyrannical rulers of the Kingdom of Liones.

Based on the best-selling manga series of the same name, Nanatsu no Taizai follows the adventures of Elizabeth, the third princess of the Kingdom of Liones, and her search for the Seven Deadly Sins. With their help, she endeavors to not only take back her kingdom from the Holy Knights, but to also seek justice in an unjust world.(from myanime list).

Review:
So the things that i liked about the anime is the characters and the bomd they have, then the way the characters strengths were showcased etc.
At first you might think that these Seven sins are to much overpowered but later you start getting frustrated about how weak they are(not exactly weak but not the same overpowered either). I also like how the anime showed how each sin got his or her powers(backstory).

Now there is some stuff that i didn’t like much, like the plot is kinda understood but some of the events are not explained very well, then there are places where the plot moves ridiculously fast(the near ending episodes) the plot was progressing at good pace but then at one point it just takes off, which kinda seems rushed.
But overall it is a good anime.
Now i am going to start with Season 2.
