Anyone knows when they release a new Hunter X Hunter anime season? I don't follow the manga because I want to experience the content through Madhouse quality, but man…. it's been years now :S
While the manga isn't really that far away for enough content, why can't Madhouse adapt the material at yearly bases instead of making another long running anime? Even the old studio, Nippon Animation, did the something similar with the HxH OVAs, of course it wasn't a smooth transition since the staff kept changing for the OVAs, but the people behind the new adaptation can avoid that, can't they?
I know that OVAs aren't as popular as they used to be as a format, but there are some pretty convincingly good replacements. For instance, they can go with ONAs, they're not that different from OVAs, but they're much more available which makes them easily marketable similar to TV series.
Another choice that is very doable is going with a 12 episode (1 cour) release yearly, specially since Togashi's hiatuses aren't two years long anymore (hope I don't jinx it), adapt 20 or so chapters into 12 episode every year, and when the gap shortens just wait another year.
Interestingly enough, Madhouse recently animated the trailer for HxH's mobile game, which means they haven't given up the rights for the series just yet, I know some people might say the new series ended not long ago, but more time has passed since it ended than it's initial TV run.
