Hunter X Hunter returns


Hunter X Hunter is not a series I have followed from the beginning, but I have just started binge watching the series on Netflix. I was unaware that it was on hiatus, and that it is a routine occurrence from the Yoshihiro Togashi. Regardless, the series returns with chapter 361. For those who don’t know, Hunter X Hunter focuses on Gon Freecss, a young boy who becomes a hunter, “a licensed profession for those who specialize in fantastic pursuits such as locating rare or unidentified animal species, treasure hunting, surveying unexplored enclaves, or hunting down lawless individuals.”

Despite being abandoned by his father, Gon follows in his fathers footsteps and hopes to find him. The series was also adapted into an anime consisted on 148 episodes, and two movies. The series has also sold over 60 million copies in Japan alone. The next chapter (361) picks up were the last chapter left off, making for an difficult resumption of the series for fans of the manga. Kurapika restrains Sairid, he asks if Sairid’s Hatsu is needed to complete the mission. Bill states that, Sairid’s ability is “an EmissionManipulation Hatsu that allows him to project his Aura into a ball and then control any creature caught inside the ball.” 

Kurapika absorbs Sairid’s aura using his steal chain, drawing out a spider like creature. It escapes and Kurapika learns more about Sairid ability called “Little Eye,” allowing him to control creatures smaller than hamsters. Meanwhile, the royalty has withdraw from battle to save face. Personally, I prefer the anime to the manga, but it looks like the anime has ended. I not sure how I feel about the manga overall, so I’ll continue to read a few more chapters then decided.

  1. I think you’ll definitely like the manga a lot if you can get past the art. The story should still be as good as ever even if this arc isn’t my favorite so far, but the art is definitely one of my least favorite from the titles I’ve read.
