Can you name every one here?

Favorite opening animation

I really didn’t think I’d have much to say on this one… and I don’t.

After rewatching all the openings to make sure there really is more than one I’m going to go with OP2.

Although this is the coolest title card

I really like those snap shots of the characters at the very beginning, it goes along very well with the music. There’s a decent amount of Hisoka. The random scenes are cutesy and amusing. E see some phantom troupe which is always fun and the only scenes that distinguish OP2 from OP3 are some fantastically animated actions scenes. In the 3 they are replaced by much more static shots of the phantom troupe members which are just not as fun to watch.

Is it a great op, naw, not really. It’s fun though, I let it play a lot.

Second place goes to OP5 which opened everyone’s favorite chimera ant arc (and for good reason). A pretty good op also, I enjoyed those background pop art animations in the first half, but it is sadly lacking in Hisokas and the animation is just not as enjoyable.

See told you I didn’t have much to say about this. Here enjoy all 6 openings and tell me which YOU like best!

In all seriousness I just did an impromptu karaoke party to those intros. Try it, i’ll make your day better.

Suggested drink: Intro to Aperol

  • Every time the lyrics are in English – have a drink
  • Every time the animation changes – have a drink
  • Every time Hisoka shows up – raise your glass
  • Every time Gon and Killua are together – have a drink of water
  • Every time Ging shows up – take a swig
  • Every time you start singing along – applaud yourself

6 thoughts on “Friday Hunt – Hunter X Hunter challenge week 12”

  1. Because HXH makes me feel like such a hipster since I watched the original series and read the manga back in the mid-00s, I’ll say my favorite opening theme would be Taiyou Wa Yoru Mo Kagayaku which is the 2nd opening from the original series.

      1. Gotcha. It’s good you saw both though. I’ve met people that didn’t even know that the current anime was a remake. Back then, people would always say “What’s Hunter X Hunter?” To me when I would tell them about it because this was before the original was licensed. Now, all of a sudden, so many people know it. Don’t feel bad about getting on the bandwagon late though.

  2. I think following your drinking challenge for this one would prove to be rather taxing!

    The OPs weren’t bad, but they weren’t amazing, either. Hm…I guess I liked the third one the most because the creepy old guy smiled when the lyrics had “You Can Smile!”

    Small things like that are nice.

Leave me a comment and make my day!
