Hunter x Hunter 2011

Alright, I’m not sure where they are going with this, but Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood was a great rewrite, so this Hunter x Hunter rewrite also has to potential to be great. Personally I’ve always been hesitant about rewrites, because I think that a rewrite has the potential to be great, but it also has the potential to ruin the original in ways I cannot express.

But so far so good, I finished watching episode one, and everything looks normal and familiar. The artwork still looks good and, since it’s a rewrite of Hunter x Hunter, the story is going to be very good too. But it’s still early to say, I’ll have to keep my fingers crossed on this one.

Plot Summary: 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.
