Watching the new version of Hunter x Hunter, because it's a Jump series on my list (It's also from the same guy who made Yu Yu Hakusho). From what I've seen, I don't even like it. But this bit stood out to me.
Original comic (1998)
For anyone confused, you read from right to left.
Anime adaptation (1999)
Anime adaptation (2011)
Only a url because I can't post more than 1 video per post. I forgot when they started doing that, but whatever.
It really seems like anime these days seems to go out of their way to tone down violence or gore, but the more I think about it, it seems both versions had to do something to get approved by the censors. They just go about it in different ways with different results.
But at least the 1999 version SHOWS the heart, and follows the original scene to a t!
