Hunter X Hunter: Phantom Rouge (First Impressions)

Hunter X Hunter: Phantom Rouge

(ain’t this the cutest thing ever? (≧∇≦)/)

Two words: pure awesomeness (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

But before I flail over how cute Killua and Gon are, I shall one-by-one review this movie     ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

First off, I thought the animation was kind of.. weird. Some are not nicely done, or rough. But it’s just minor details so it was fine either way. The sounds of the movie was nice as well, sound effects were realistic (for me.. what do you think guys?) and those catchy tunes~! I mean the BGM from when they meet and do mischievous things (lol. you do know what I mean right?) I just can’t get enough of that~ ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ  Their seiyuus were awesome too! As always, they do a great job.

The plot was interesting, tho I thought of it as confusing at first. You know, the whole “why the heck is Uvo alive?!?!!” thing (lol). Then again, I just had to watch the whole thing to understand it of course. And the intro was cute too~! Having chibi versions of them explaining a short synopsis of the whole Hunter X Hunter story (until Yorknew city arc that is~).

I’m really happy to see the four of them complete again. It’s been a while right~? The last time they’ve been together was Yorknew City arc. With Chimera arc getting gruesome and all.. I thought it was nice seeing them like that (*´・v・)


This guy.. is somewhat eccentric (lol). His name is Omokage, the original 4th member of the Genei Ryoudan. The one that Hisoka fought to replace with. He’s creepy yet interesting. It’s what makes the movie amusing. He’s a sadist ain’t he~? Using the non-living or their fears… to hurt people. It was pretty saddening for me to see Kil like that ya’know (´;ω;`) But~ I somehow like Kil when he’s in “assassin” mode.. I don’t know. I think it’s cool.. (weird right? lol).

RetzAnother interesting character is Retz~!  She’s one suspicious character. I already thought she was a girl even though she was dressed up as a boy when she met Gon. I was amused when Kil got jealous over her being close with Gon. Seriously Kil? How selfish can you get? (lol) But Retz mean no harm. And just being manipulated by her eccentric brother.

It was cool seeing Kurapika’s backstory too. I don’t know much about Leorio and him so I thought it was interesting. I do know that Leorio lost his friend because of an illness so he wants to be a doctor. For Kurapika, he want revenge and get his clan’s eyes back. Seeing his backstory made me understand a whole lot more about him.

Also, I DON’T UNDERSTAND YOU GENEI RYOUDAN (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ Which side are you on? Really ┬──┬◡ノ(° -°ノ) Well.. they aren’t heartless as I thought they are (technically they are heartless bastards but I admire them.. meh~). Even if they were just extras in the movie (lol) it was nice seeing them.

Speaking of which, Hisoka was there.. that one smexy bastard ლ(´ڡ`ლ) It’s been a while since I saw him, I mean in the anime.. He’s not in Chimera Arc so it’s a bit lonely~ (´・_・`) And Feitan~!! That guy ლ(́◉◞౪◟◉‵ლ) It will take a while to see him in Chimera Arc. I just cannot wait to see him kick some butt °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

Oops, getting a bit sidetracked. Anyway~! I was happy with this movie. I know it’s all about the bonds of their friendship buuuut… NOTHING’S THE SAME FOR A FUJOSHI. Seriously (ーー;) I can’t help but get my imaginations go wild.

Hunter X Hunter: Phantom Rouge

(I MEAN COME ON! Look at it!! aren’t they cute?)

There are lots of this throughout the movie. BUT this movie is about their friendship~!! ╭(๑¯д¯๑)╮

Moving on~

The last part showed bits of the Greed Island and Chimera arc. I’m guessing this storyline is before the Greed Island arc. Meaning, they haven’t met Bisuke yet~! And they aren’t as strong. She still had her ponytails~ Also, Kite was still there.

According to Wikipedia: A second film was announced following the first one’s debut. So far the only uncovered detail is that it will have some focus on Netero, the president of the Hunter Association.

With that in mind, I cannot wait for another awesome movie (⌒▽⌒)☆ I’ll rate this movie 9/10~! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ
