Nippon Animation's 1999 adaptation of Yoshihiro Togashi's manga.


Hunter × Hunter (pronounced "Hunter Hunter" as the "×" is a silent symbol and not the letter "x") is an anime adaptation of the manga of the same name.

It was announced in July 2011 that a new anime series would be produced. Animated by Madhouse, it would not be a continuation from where the previous adaptation left off, but instead retell the story from the beginning. This version has since passed the previous anime content-wise, with the start of the never-before-animated Chimera Ant Arc.


Twelve-year-old orphan Gon lives on Whale Island with his Aunt Mito. After a chance meeting with Kite, a Hunter who trained under Gon's father, Gon learns that his father is alive but has chosen being a Hunter over being a father. Gon decides to become a Hunter (the all-purpose job description encompassing monster-killing, bounty-taking, treasure-troving, and tomb-raiding), to learn what about it is so enticing that a man would choose it over his own son. However, even the exam to become a Hunter is a life or death struggle, where only a small percentage of applicants pass.
