Details on "Hunter x Hunter" Anime Movie Revealed
Hunter x Hunter the Movie: Hiiro no Genei (Scarlet Phantom) scheduled to open January 12, 2013
Like where the Hunter x Hunter anime series is going with the new adaptation of Phantom Troupe arc? Ready for more, blown up to big screen cinema quality? Well, then you should be very pleased with the plans for the upcoming Hunter x Hunter anime movie.
Scheduled to premiere in Japan January 12, 2013, Yoshihiro Togashi is overseeing Hunter x Hunter the Movie: Hiiro no Genei (Scarlet Phantom), which is believe to feature Phantom Troupe versus the Kurta Clan, possibly the story of the former's eradication of the latter. Given the title, it would be quite the fake out if it didn't at least involve the Troupe and Kurapika.
More story details will be explained in this weekend's Weekly Shonen Jump No. 34.
