Synopsis

After the battle with the Spiders, the search for Ging continues as Gon and Killua decided to once again attempt to purchase the rare game "Greed Island". However, Gon came up with a better plan, which was to volunteer to complete the game for the billionaire who owned it. But some training must be done, as Gon and Killua's abilities are still at a developing stage and "Greed Island" is no simple game for anyone to play with. It is the infamous game that could easily lead to one's death. Based on the manga by Togashi Yoshihiro.

Greed Island is the second of 3 Hunter x Hunter OVAs. It chronicles Gon's search for his father, Jin/Ging Freecs. The only clue Gon has is the Greed Island game disc which is father left for him. Unfortunately he needs a special "Joystation" to play the game - and the Greed Island game is expensive (think $ Billions). Gon and Killua attempt to purchase the Greed Island game at auction. Thus begins the Greed Island OVA.

Similar to the first OVA and the Hunter x Hunter series, the animation is what we're used to - good but not fantastic. The sound is great even though by read more

Recommendations

In case you are just looking for a story about characters litterally inside a videogame then both SAO and HxH Green Island (along with its sequel: HxH Green Island Final) could be of your liking, because they both share:
• RPG with a virtual reality (including quests, gaining items, special skills, and such)
• The game over means real death for all players in both stories
• The characters are somewhat trapped inside the game, and to get out they must achieve a certain point and clear the game
• Overall good art design and nice characters

Probably you might be discourauged by watching HxH Green Island as you might think that you need to watch also the previous series: well that's true and yet not. It's always very much preferible to watch every prequel in order to have a better knowledge about characters, personalities, backgrounds and techniques; and I, myself, recommend to watch the prequels, but if i have to be honest: Green Island (and Green Island Final) it's about an "almost stand-alone" canon arc from the manga, where the main character, in order to search for his father, joins this special RPG, and if you have a little of hintuition you might not necessarily need to watch all the prequels.

That said, both SAO and Green Island (arc) are quite enjoyable.
If you liked one of those, you might really give a try to the another as well, cuz they are quite similar!
Similarities
- the story takes place in an online game
- protagonist is a silly character but with great potential
- few people can enter the game
- the main group also has boys and a girl
