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 Kurapika, 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.

The lack of fandom surrounding Hunter X Hunter is somewhat enigmatic to me. It is a title that, by all rights, should have a huge buzz behind it. Not only is Hunter X Hunter the work of Yoshihiro Togashi, the creator of Yu Yu Hakusho, but it is also far superior to other currently running big-hype titles, the most prominent of which is Naruto. It manages to be enormously entertaining through its unique concoction of animation, characterization, and plot, without resorting to the cliches that have all too often ruined a seemingly novel show of a similar vein. And yet Hunter X Hunter remains little known. With any luck this review will have a hand in lifting the veil of obscurity that currently surrounds this magnificent title.
To begin with, the story of Hunter X Hunter is vibrant and imaginative, though not at all difficult. Right from the start the aim of this series is made clear, the eventual reunion of Gon with his father. However, the path that is taken to achieve this end is full of twists and turns that continuously succeed in keeping this tale fresh. The viewer is ceaselessly wisked between offbeat situations as varied as the dangerous wilderness to a battle-stage tower with over two hundred floors of increasingly difficult fighting tournaments. It is through these atypical situations that we come to understand the motivations of our lead and become endeared to his cause. A superb level of attention in plotting is also dedicated to the other prominent cast members, including Gon's companions Killua, Leorio, and Kurapica. Though the centerpiece here is Gon, none of the supporting roles go underdeveloped. In fact the only problem with plotting is that the story takes a few episodes to really get churning. If you can make it to about episode six or seven though, you will be fully strapped in for one hell of a fun ride.
A rather unexpected facet of this title is how lightly the plot focuses on fighting, especially given that Togashi’s most famous work, Yu Yu Hakusho, was often little more than a continuous battle-fest. To be certain, fighting does take place and at some points in the series it becomes quite prominent, but it never manages to wrestle the spotlight away from the fleshier portions of the narrative. Despite this, the action leaves very little to be desired. The fight-action sets here are more complex than the typical ki-blasting, as fast-as-light-movement farce that has become the industry standard for fighting anime. Instead we are treated to a truly creative power-leveling system and a diversity of combat styles that make each fight more than simply diversionary but instead truly engaging. It is as if the battle scenes have actually added to the tension and excitement of the plotline rather than flattened it, a rare occurrence indeed.
Leaving just a bit more to be desired of Hunter X Hunter, however, are the peripherals. Musically, while not bad, HXH just does not manage to live up to its more palatial qualities. Still, the music is good enough and has continuously improved throughout the series. I have personally enjoyed the opening and closing music more and more with each successive theme change that occurs. Additionally the animation is mostly quite nice. It certainly isn’t spectacular by any stretch of the imagination, but it is visually appealing. There is also a definite change for the better in terms of animation the further one progresses through the show. The set pieces have strong appeal as well, and are reasonably effective at immersing us in this strange and phenomenal world.
The most remarkable aspect of Hunter X Hunter, however, lies within its remarkable characters. Most of the cast here is not at all generic or formulaic, a welcome retreat from the chiefly derivative characters so prominent in similar shows. Gon, the show’s lead, is a charismatic young boy whose optimism and innocence is always invigorating without being imposing. An odd tidbit, Gon is virtually never the strongest character on the screen, by a long shot. A partial reason for this is that his goal isn’t necessarily to be the strongest being in existence but primarily to better himself. This is another big plus in the personality department that sets Gon apart from your conventional “Shonen Jump Hero Archtype”. Gon’s optimism is offset well by the darker, more brooding persona of Killua, a young boy that Gon befriends early in the show. Together they make for perhaps the most interesting pair of best friends in all of anime. Their companions, Leorio and Kurapica, also make for complex and interesting characters. Leorio is a man who, haunted by his past, is motivated to the performance of benevolent acts to the benefit of humanity. Kurapica, conversely, is motivated by revenge, though revenge is an ideal that is out of character for him. Consequently, Kurapica always seems to be a man at odds with himself. Equally compelling are the more contemptible figures of this tale such as Hisoka, Kuroro, and the rest of the Genei Ryodan. The interplay of these vastly different personalities is the bread and butter of Hunter X Hunter.
It should be no secret that Hunter X Hunter has bewitched me. Beyond some very minor failings, it is nearly beyond fault. It carries with it a sort of energy and charm that is very intoxicating. To put it most concisely, Hunter X Hunter should be considered Yoshihiro Togashi’s new masterwork. Any less firm a designation would be an injustice against this superb animated opus.
This is my favorite Shonen series of all time. There.
Disclaimer: I did watch the remake to the first arc, when it came out, before I watched this.
"TL;DR" located in the bottom.
The story in its core is a pretty generic one, but thanks to some really good elements, the show gets personality.
The show's about a kid named Gon who grew up on an island isolated from the industrialized world.
One day a very strange customer, not from the island came for the main character's rescue, and his name was Kite.
Gon had walked into a Foxbear's territory and fell. Kite was looking for all throughout the world for his master -- an assignment given to him by said master.
Kite began this journey by looking for his master's birthplace, which is this island. To his surprise, he found Gon very reminiscent of his master, whose name is Ging. Later to find out that Gon was in fact his master's son.
Gon didn't know anything of his father besides a photo, as his aunt was too protective of him to share. But Kite explained to him that not only was his father alive, he was also a so-called "hunter".
And so Kite explained the concept of these "hunters" -- they're basically a person with a "Hunter license". With that license, your influence in the world gets a lot bigger. You also get permission to do certain things "regular" people cannot do.
But in order to get this license you have to complete an exam of which the difficulty and dangers are high. Many fail, and many die.
When Gon hears of this, he constructs the ultimate resolve to find his father, and in order to do so he feels the need to become a Hunter.
The first arc of the series revolves around him and his three friends doing the exam. He meets these three friends during the exam.
It does however, not involve much fighting. But the fights are memorable and well, not brainless. When you've finished the show, you'll remember most of them if not all. The series is somewhat original when it comes to its fights, they're often not long, but they still manage to be very interesting.
The characters are so good. It's really where the show shines as a true masterpiece. Not only are the main characters good, the supporting are fantastic!
The character development is beyond good. I can't stress it enough!
The show's art can be off-putting to some, but in my opinion it adds to the show's dark atmosphere and themes. The color scheme tends to be very dark, especially the backgrounds, and they are very well made.
The actual characters can be poorly drawn at times, especially in the first arc, but the show gets more consistent with its art as it progresses. The first OVA has the most optimal art -- which you must watch as the show ends mid-arc, and the OVA continues said arc.
The animation is one of the reasons for my pretty low score, as it's so inconsistent, shows like Rurouni Kenshin and YuYu Hakusho which aired years before Hunter did, were a hell of a lot more consistent. Comparing Trust and Betrayal to HxH 1999 is like comparing a sweetass princess cake to a bag of shit -- which would you rather eat?
The soundtrack is awesome. It fits perfectly with the atmosphere the show's trying to pull. Sometimes it's happy and sometimes it's really dark and insidious. It truly is one of those soundtracks I can listen to all the way through without skipping.
Sometimes I even went back to certain parts just because the soundtrack was so well placed in correlation with the visuals.
I also really liked the intros and outros of the show, especially the second and third intros. The second in particular I consider to be a masterpiece, as if we delve deeper in it, it conveys the trouble and misery the main character of the arc goes through.
The voice acting is good. Better than the remake at least, although that's entirely subjective. I just prefer the actors in this one.
The English dub is complete garbage though. Not that the actual actors were bad, most of them just didn't fit the roles in my opinion. Like Kurapika..
I really like the dialogue too, especially in the serious and tense scenes.
The sound effects can be really funky at times.. Like when Hisoka sorta strangles Gon, this balloon scratch effect plays. It's repeated several times through the series, and it stands out like a sore thumb. It just feels so out of place, and you can really tell that they're just scratching a balloon :_:
The enjoyment is a definite 10/10. Some think the first arc is slow paced, but I don't. It gives a really good introduction to the characters.. If you think it is slow, you really just should endure it because the story becomes a lot more eventful in the later arcs.
The show focuses more on development and plot than actual fights, which is refreshing because when the fights actually occur, you feel rewarded. All the build-up really is worth it.
To people who watched the 2011 remake, give this a try. It's not at all like the remake.
And to the people who can't decide whether or not to watch the remake or this one, I'd say go with the remake -- it has more story. I prefer this over the remake as it isn't as happy-go-lucky.
TL;DR - Good story with solid characters, superb soundtrack and awesome settings with a dark and insidious atmosphere.
Watch both this, the first OVA and the remake. The differences between the original and the remake are vast.

This is my second review forgive me if i make any mistakes Hunter X Hunter is another popular shonen anime series that i really enjoyed watching i first discovered Hunter X Hunter after watching Yu Yu Hakusho another classic and my favorite anime created by Yoshiro Togashi Who Also Created Hunter X Hunter after watching the first episode of Hunter X Hunter i was really amazed by it and immediately interested in it it's really unique although it doesn't have alot of action in like the first 20 or 30 episodes it's still entertaining and fun to watch just a lot of interesting stuff in this series what i was really intrigued by the most was the themes of the series it's all about survival adventure challenges you will see a lot of that in this series
Story It Starts Off With A 12 year old boy named Gon who's the son of a hunter and soon wishes to follow in his father's footsteps and become a hunter himself so he can one day meet his father but before that he must participate in the Hunter Exam in order to become a professional licensed Hunter during the Hunter Exam Gon befriends Leorio who wishes to become a doctor Kuripika who wants to become a black list Hunter so he can get revenge on those who killed his people And Killua a boy who comes from a family of assassin's who has a close bond with Gon The Four friends struggle and encounter many trials challenges and life and death situations in order to become hunters. The four main characters are obviously similar to the main characters of Yu Yu Hakusho
Plot It can be weird and confusing at times but the plot is really interesting i really enjoyed the Hunter Exam arc the first arc of the series it really challenges the characters and pushes them to their limits you will see bizzare and yet interesting phases trials both physical and psychological challenging although i was really disappointed on how this arc ended i expected more from this arc but it's still good the rest of the arcs are okay but the Hunter Exam is easily the best arc in the series 8/10
Sound i watched this in English the dub is not too bad not too great either but the dialogue makes it worth watching 7/10
Characters a lot of the characters are unique colorful and complex especially Hisoka who the gang meets during the Hunter Exam a very bizzare character can't really figure him out and what his methods truly are and that makes him a frightening and yet interesting character 9/10
Art The Artwork is well done it gets even better later on 9/10
Overall Hunter X Hunter is a great enjoyable adventure based shonen anime i plan on watching the 2 ovas and the critically acclaimed remake of the original series if you never watched Hunter X Hunter before you should check it out 8/10 read more
Whether it is music, movies, or politics, there is always conflict and highly differing opinions from one generation to the next. So is the case with Hunter X Hunter, that my generation felt was a shitty, inferior version of Yu Yu Hakusho, and young anime fans feel is the greatest shonen ever! This generational difference was the subject of the classic novel Fathers and Sons by Turgenev, so allow me to play the anime Turgenev and examine the strange case of Hunter X Hunter.
skip the next paragraph if you don't care about generational difference in taste or the shaping forces on the popular perception of series and how it changes over time.
Of all the overrated series on MAL, Hunter X Hunter sitting at 8.5 and the 2011 remake sitting in the top fucking 3 are probably the worst in my opinion. I haven't seen the 2011 version, but I saw the old version in the late 1990s...and honestly it sucked. Yasuhiro Togashi pretty much recycled ideas, characters, and the crazy battles from his earlier work Yu Yu Hakusho. However, Hunter X Hunter wasn't nearly as good as Yu Yu Hakusho and didn't have the popularity or acclaim of Hakusho, at least the first series didn't when in first came out in the 1990s. Then something...interesting happened. A remake was created in 2011 with slightly less filler and slightly better art, and for reasons I can't quite fathom the new generation of otaku born from roughly 1995-20005 thought this new series was AWESOME! For older otaku born 1984 to 1994 that watched the original shitty series and hated it, this fills us with confusion, anger, and disdain. Allow me to help you younger viewers imagine what this feels like, by giving ya'll a history lesson. Remember Elfen Lied from 2004? That old series that everyone says sucks shit through a straw? What if in 2025 there was a remake of Elfen Lied that had slightly better art, an ending that wasn't an open ending, and the next generation of anime fans gave it a 9.5 on MAL. There would be a LOT of people pissed off, because you would feel that the judgment of your generation was discarded and shat upon by a bunch of young punks with no taste. As a tangent, I find it interesting how series evaluation fluctuates with time and how popular perception influences individual perception. Believe it or not, Elfen Lied had very good ratings for the first couple years after its release. However, its fans were overzealous and annoying, so around 2009 a campaign was started on 4chan's /a/ to post idiotic copypasta of why it sucks whenever the series is brought up. This criticism was furthered by a new generation of anti-moe, hipster, "elitist" critics on the English speaking internet that also mostly came from 4chan, the reeking asshole of the internet. For kids that started really getting into anime around 2009, all they have ever seen are extremely negative reviews and often absurd criticisms. Did ANYONE complain about the convenient amnesia, unrealistic characters, open ending, etc. in Monster? Fuck no! Even though it did almost all the same "crimes" that EL did! However, if you go into a series thinking its going to suck, then you will come away thinking "Wow that sucked, those folks on 4chan sure knew what they were talking about. A similar thing happened to Evangelion in the late 1990s. Why do you think reviewers born in the 1980s like Bennet the Sage, Little Kuriboh, JesuOtaku, etc. all HATE Eva. The answer is that they started going online and getting into anime in the late 1990s during the height of Eva bashing when every online review in the English language was calling Eva poorly written, pretentious bullshit! Thankfully, the reboots have mercifully restored Eva's reputation with newer fans and today it enjoys high ratings once again.
Story and characters: 4/10
The story is about a boy who wants to find his powerful missing father (Hakusho ripoff count 1). The boy must pass a series of trials to gain a vague title that basically means he's a certified badass (2). The boy forms a kickass 4 man team to battle the bad guys (3). Very soon our team has to enter a dangerous and often lethal tournament (4). The fights are decided not with strength but crazy strategies and unusual deaths using crazy weapons (5). The badass character everyone loves is a vertically challenged assassin with crazy hair (6). Do I really have to go on?
Dear God did the art suck in the original series! Yu Yu Hakusho looked better than this and it finished in 1994, a full 5 years before Hunter X Hunter started in 1999. There is no excuse as to why the animation is so shitty. Maybe they tried to make the art look closer to the manga? That would be a pretty bad idea considering the fact that Togashi is basically the Rob Liefeld of shonen manga.
Although Hunter X Hunter had a few moments that were cool, it was mostly just tedious and annoying. Every minute I watched it, I was wondering why I wasn't just re-watching Yu Yu Hakusho.
I know I am in the minority opinion here on MAL, but I REALLY felt Hakusho was the vastly superior Togashi series and didn't really enjoy Hunter X Hunter. Maybe the 2011 series is WAY better, but I have no desire to watch it based on this one.
Both created by Yoshihiro Togashi. Shounen genre and involves the main characters discovering a whole new world outside of what they knew.
Well,same manga creatror,same action and interesting animes and both are animation are a like,they both very great and similar to each other.the characters are very similar too ;]
Same author. same look. same tournament-based theme. same character attributes. They even have characters that both sparked endless controversies whether he is a she or she is a he. The only obvious difference between the two is probably the lack of female love interests in Hunter x Hunter... oh well, that's the second difference, the HxH heroes are a bit younger than YYH's.
The story lines are dark and there is the feeling the main characters may not survive. There are trials and tribulations that they have to go through to. Both are also older series.
both have tournaments to win
here is how you compare yu yu hakusho with hunter x hunter.. in terms of appearances.. leorio-kwabara-both are the tallest main characters; gon-yusuke-both are the main protagonists, kurapika-kurama-both use long weapons(chains and rose whip) and killua-hiei(both are fast, and their eyes are seemingly resembling, although killua smiles unlike hiei)
Both animes follow a group of guys through battle tournaments of sorts and have plenty of fighting scenes to satisfy the inner violent you = ) They both also have different arc sequences where goals of the groups change ad eventually the groups split and go separate ways but then meet up again. For girls: bishounen in both series For guys: blood and awesomness
They are both stories that are drawn by the same artist. Also, it seems similar in another way because when the main character is facing a challenge they somehow manage to pull through and win or survive.
The manga these shows are based off of are written by the same person and you can tell. Both have very similar stories and storylines with mystical powers and tournaments. Both of these are my favorite animes. The only downside is that Hunter x Hunter just kind of end with many questions left to wonder about. Bottom line if you like shounen watch this anime.
Same author and the characters was both the same.
Yuyu Hakusho and Hunter X Hunter Characters:
Yusuke = Gon
Kazuma = Leorio
Kurama = Kurapika
Hiei = Killua
Both animes from same author
both animes have great characters
both animes have great fights
Both of these series follow adolescents. The main characters both follow a set goal where each is trying to prove something to someone. The character development is superb and goes into exquisite detail for everyone. Both series have specific powers or abilities that each character maintains. Action scenes are also extremely intense and well animated.
Aside from the stubborn-ness and will-to-succeed-no-matter-what personalities of both lead characters Naruto (Naruto) and Gon (HxH), the display of a wide range of fighting styles using a certain energy-manipulating concept (chakra for Naruto; nen for HxH), the dangerous examinations storyline (Genin/Chuunin exams; Hunter exams), and the search for an important person (Naruto's friend Sasuke; Gon's dad Jin), the quality of humor and adventure in both anime gives the viewer similar highly enjoyable experience :)
The series have many things in common. The main character is a boy who has to pass a difficult, often life-threatening exam using jitsu/spiritual energy, and he does it with the help of his friends. There are lots of fights and many episodes are focused on training.
A little boy who goes out on a journey while finding friends, fighting against an evil organisation and is an image after his father who is an legend.
I highly recommend this show to any Naruto fan out there. It's funny and has a really good story. The animation is good when you think of how old it is and the music is fitting. Also at some parts it feels like Naruto has adapt some things from this show like the exam and an evil organisation.
Do I even dare to say that HunterxHunter is much better than Naruto? Well, yeah I do.
A shounen with a, in my opinion, little more mature approuch than Naruto, sacrificing a little bit of fighting for a lot more psychology etc.
Also, Naruto has several influenses from this anime as far as i can see.
Both animes start out with the characters taking exams. From there you see what hapens to them during the exams and the harsher realities of the aftermaths.
if you like Naruto than you should know that more than half the stuff in it was already taken from hunter x hunter. the most obvious is the fact that a clan of "red-eyed" people were slaughtered because of their red-eyes. thee's also the fact that there's a survivor that's bent on getting revenge and will do anything to succeed. remind you of someone?....
other than that "idea"
both main characters grew up without their parents.
both their dad's are great people.
both "act" rather than "think"
they both have a 4 main character squad (team 7 with kakashi, and than Gon's team)
both have an exam at the beginning.
both have an antagonist group that's bent on destroying the world or something related (akatsuki = the spiders) and the "red-eyes" want to find this group.
both have some sort of chakra/ki/energy related stuff that they learn
both have shounen battles and tournaments.
both have something ridiculous with them (Naruto wearing a bright orange jumpsuit while he's a ninja, and Gon fighting with a fishing rod) yet somehow their able to work with it.
the main male characters are the xcept that in naruto the guy's more idoitic and hyper but both guys are hardworking and never give up. they both also talk bout clans and enemy clan. oh and in both one guy has red eyes. i recomend this if you liked h x h
In the same way that HxH was deeply inspired by Dragonball, Naruto is deeply inspired by HxH. For one, both series make their money from their attachable characters and bright outdoor style. Second, many plot element from Naruto are almost simply ripped off HxH (chuunin exam and hunter exam, chakra abilities taken from a nen ability - the puppeteer for instance).
However, just as HxH was more serious than DB, dropping a lot of the humour for more daunting psychological trauma, Naruto pushes that further to the point of sounding emo at time. Yet, overall, it remains light.
Both Hunter x Hunter and Naruto experience the same events and similar writing, Its very clear theat Naruto is similar to Hunter X hunter with shonen style fighting,charactors , abilities ,and saga's
Both are based on manga that were created around the same period and published by Shounen Jump. Both have a main protagonist who has no parents and never surrenders. They follow the main protagonist as he makes several friends, from which, one who comes from a notorious family and one who seeks vengeance for the murder of his clan. The first part of the anime follow these protagonist as they take a certain exam (Chuunin exams / Hunter exams). They also have similar villains: a shady criminal organization (Phantom Troupe / Akatsuki), and a pale man who takes an interest in the main characters and switches factions often (Hisoka / Orochimaru).
Just as One Piece,Hunter x hunter is a pretty long shounen anime,both series can be really funny at times ,you will never get bored and always want to see the next episode,both anime have some awesome fights and also the characters are very likable,if you enjoy one of this anime you will most probably like the other one too.
These two shounen animes are the best of their genre, and im sure anyone who's liked one, will definetly like the other.
Long running series like One Piece. The main characters have typical characteristics, fun and yet intuitive. You will definitely enjoy this anime
Both are popular manga that run in the same magazine. They have similar styles and a wide cast of characters. They also have plenty of action and a darker side to the adventure.
The way that main charcter are not botherin you (like Naruto forex) and the respect that you feal towards Gon, Killua, Hisoka and others in this great anime is somewhat similar to One Piece series
Both main characters are tremendously similar. Both stubborn, with hidden strong sides, happy-go-lucky attitudes and they are really single minded. While Luffy goes for the title of Pirate king Gon chases the title of Hunter, with friends that will follow them through the deepest and most dangerous adventures.
Super engaging/amusing/touching Epic Quest fantasy with a ton of awesome characters.
One of the easiest recommendations ever. Hunter x Hunter and One Piece deliver top notch emotion and character development, that it's just hard to even avoid them. Any shounen fan should have seen these two animes, because they're bound to love them.
Similar: Adventures, Fantasy, Actions, Superpowers, Drama, Comedy.
PS: The anime was cut in middle
Both are about adventures and fights and magical things, HxH is more mature and also way more violent though, it also avoids all the cliche moments seen in most shonen making it more original.
I recommend watching the 2011 version for now
In both series the main chars are actually weaker than their opponents and they win with pure strategy.
Ueki its like the fusion of killua and gon ^^, a cool guy that wants to help everybody, and the type of anime its very similar, good fights and a stronger enemy on the next one
this anime has cool fights, and everyone have a different power (like nem) so every fight its different. The story its very funny and if u liked hunter x hunter i know u will like the law of ueki and of course if u like the law of ueki u cant miss Hunter x Hunter because its one of the greatest anime that i had ever see
Competition, powers, youth, justice... what more can you ask?
Well-paced, purposeful action.
Both protagonists are nearly the same age, and both have supernatural doings, making it a anime to enjoy.
Both anime involve a group of friends traveling together and engaging in independent fights, as well as tournament-style fights. They are both great series, especially for martial arts lovers. Both have interesting characters, each with their purpose for fighting, a mysterious group of antagonists, and a lot of fun to watch.
Both are famous Shounen Animes.
The Both have action. drama and funny moments. Rekka sometimes reminds me of Gon.
Both contain great sword fights, have mysterious antagonists, and very likable characters.
Both having same sort of "martial arts" power and training development except Flame of Recca is more supernatural and historical ortientated. Both have those all familiar tournament fights, but in Hunter x Hunter they are more refined. Classic!
Brilliant minds. Life and death situations. Story gets darker just as Death Note does.
They're both mindblowing good. They have some similarities in psychological thinking and plottwists. They have similar characters who are extremely smart or skilled at stuff. I highly recommend both of them. They both have (almost) no boring ep whatsoever.
in terms of the plot they arent really similar but they both entail the theme of strategy and planning

20 Realist Quotes from Hunter X Hunter
In the violent and sometimes unforgiving world of Hunter X Hunter, it pays to be realistic in order to understand and accept things as they are. No one can purchase something as valuable as personal experience. Let these 20 quotes help you in your daily journey.
Nen: The Heart of Hunter X Hunter
There's a reason Hunter X Hunter is one of the most popular series on MAL and worldwide - Togashi Yoshihiro's classic manga was turned into a masterpiece anime by Madhouse. It's full of interesting ideas, but none are more important than Nen.
