"Hunter x Hunter" Animator Hyped for Chimera Ant Finale

Takehiko Abiru says goodbye to long-running story

Way back on April 21, 2013, Gon used his Greed Island victory to travel to "Nigg" in hopes of meeting his father, Ging, finding Kite instead. That kicked off the Hunter x Hunter anime's long-running Chimera Ant arc with episode 76. As the anime finally gets ready to say its bittersweat goodbye in this week's 135 and next week's 136, Takehiko Abiru, the animator who served as animation director on the story's end credits, has posted a special tribute.
