Synopsis

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.

Review

This is the best action shounen out there! Don’t be put off by the small child with spikey hair because his name is Gon and he’s awesome!

The character development in this show is excellent and I found myself going back to episode one to see how one character in particular had changed so much.

Each arc feels so different and original with deep and complex ideas which are just epic to see in what is on the surface, a kid’s show.

The visuals and fights are great but the progression and scale that HxH takes place on is brilliant. The principles of nen are fascinating and really entertaining and every arc after that feels epic. You should definitely watch this.
