"Hunter x Hunter" Phantom Troupe #4 Design Revealed

First full look at mystery antagonist

As shounen manga authors go, Yoshihiro Togashi doesn't seem terribly interested in dealing with backstories, but it looks like he's about to address one of the most intriguing dangling plot threads. The January Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge anime movie will introduce us to Omokage, the Phantom Troupe antagonist replaced by anti-hero Hisoka two years prior to the events of the series.

 

From the Hunter x Hunter wiki:

Kurapika became a Hunter to take vengeance on the Class-A crime group Phantom Troupe who massacred his clan for their unique eyes. The eyes of the Kurta clan turn scarlet in times of anger or emotional agitation and are considered the most beautiful treasures in the world. Kurapika continues to pursue the Phantom Troupe but an unknown party has stolen his "scarlet eyes". With the help of Gon, Killua and Leorio, Kurapika' s life was saved. However, the Phantom Troupe shows up before them and blocks their way. The true identity of the one with the No.4 spider tatoo is about to be unveiled.
