Synopsis

Remake of the 1999 TV series of Hunter x Hunter based on the manga by Togashi Yoshihiro.

A Hunter is one who travels the world doing all sorts of dangerous tasks. From capturing criminals to searching deep within uncharted lands for any lost treasures. Gon is a young boy whose father disappeared long ago, being a Hunter. He believes if he could also follow his father's path, he could one day reunite with him.

After becoming 12, Gon leaves his home and takes on the task of entering the Hunter exam, notorious for its low success rate and high probability of death to become an official Hunter. He befriends the revenge-driven Kurapica, the doctor-to-be Leorio and the rebellious ex-assassin Killua in the exam, with their friendship prevailing throughout the many trials and threats they come upon taking on the dangerous career of a Hunter.


Main Characters

Gon Freecss. Gon is the son of Gin Freecss, a legendary hunter whose current whereabouts are unknown. He never knew his father was alive, much less a hunter until he met Kaito; a hunter who was also looking for Gin. From this point on, he became determined to find his father and decided to take the Hunter exam to do so. He became friends with Killua almost instantly when they met at the Hunter exam.

Killua Zoldyck. Killua is a member of the Zoldyck family, who are a family of legendary assassins. Since birth, he trained endlessly in the art of assassination. He eventually ran away from his family and profession and joined the Hunter exam. He befriended Gon almost immediately and has loyally followed his best friend since then.

Kurapika. Kurapika is a member of the Kurta tribe who were massacred by the Phantom Troupe (The Spiders) 4 years prior the Hunter exam. The Kurta tribe was an isolated group of people whose eyes would turn scarlet when angered or excited. These scarlet eyes were known to be beautiful, being one of the seven most beautiful in the world. Because of this, the Kurta tribe was constantly pursued and eventually massacred. The eyes of the tribe members were all taken away during the massacre. Kurapika is so far the only known survivor with a heart bent on revenge. He strives to have his revenge against the Phantom Troupe as well as recover the eyes of his tribe members.

Leorio. Prior the hunter exam, Leorio's close friend died to a curable illness. Despite being curable, Leorio was unable to save his close friend due to his lack of money and knowledge. He aims to become a doctor. One that will help those even without the money to pay for treatment. He decides to take the hunter exam in an attempt to earn money for tuition fees and medical treatment for others.

----------------------

After 10 years of waiting, it's finally here.


First episode:
After watching the first episode, I got a bit surprised 'cause everything happened too fast.
They actually rushed the whole thing. I'm not saying it was bad, it was just too... fast-paced!
I thought the voice actors did a great job and I got used to them already.
And as far as animation goes, I'm pretty sure I'm loving this one more than the original. :)
What I hated the most though, was the terrible music. Seriously, for a big comeback the music wasn't very pleasing.
I expected more but it just blew. Seriously, the masterpiece that was the original's OP & ED are what this
new one is missing.

Still, I loved it. Great first episode. I have a feeling this is gonna be better than the original by a long mile.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for more wonderful episodes.
The second episode preview seems like episodes 4 & 5 from the original. CAN'T WAIT.

Well i don't mind that they sped things up on the ship but removing the first scene with gon and kaito ?! That was important as it is the beginning to the whole series. I hope they do some sort of flashback so that if they make it to the ant queen arc it wouldn't be confusing as to who is kaito. Other than that i loved the episode and i loved the music. The opening of the original series was better but the new opening is still good. I loved the ending more than the original.

Im saddened by the VA for Kurapika because the original sounded so boyish and the way he acted was girlish so it made you curious if he was a girl or a boy. The new VA is Lag Seeing and has a really girlish voice so you just think its wrong they are calling this chick a dude.

They did leave out some important stuff but I guess some of it could be covered in flashbacks if they wanted to. They might be kind of rushing it to catch up to where the original anime left off or something though.

I knew they skipped something important! But I forgot what it was lol. Thanks.

They really shouldn't have cut the scene with Kaito.

In case you guys didn't know. The flashback with Kite/Kaito was announced to be moved to after the Hunter Exam. In order to lessen the gap between his appearance and reappearence.

Keep in mind this is not a remake of the original anime. They are readapting the manga. This version follows the manga much more precislely and has the correct meeting with Leorio and Kurapika. Whereas the old anime changed things too much from the manga.

Also I prefer they blend two chapters into one for the next episode. By this pacing, I am guessing Hisoka will appear at the end of episode 3.

Great. Let's just hope that they actually make it to Kaito's reappearance.

They have already announced that this will be a long-running series and intend to go beyond Chimera Ant... Don't you guys follow the news regarding this series? Or do you just complain that it's not how you like it even though plenty of reasons have been given and explained for what will be happening with this series.

But wait that is not all, details of the structure of the adaptation have also been announced. In particular it has been revealed that Kite, the Hunter who inspires Gon to become a Hunter in chapter 1 of the Manga shall not appear until later on in the anime, in order to lessen the gap between his first appearance and reappearance during the Chimera Ants arc.

I liked it a lot actually. For a reboot they trimmed a lot of fat out which I don't know how much was in the manga or not. I can't help but wonder if they're going to go back to talk about Kaito or not later seeing as how that's why Gon started as moving towards being a hunter. I do hope it does well enough to get past what the first run did. Even as little as I like the chimera ant arc I wouldn't mind seeing it animated.
