Hunters are specialized in a wide variety of fields, ranging from treasure hunting to cooking. They have access to otherwise unavailable funds and information that allow them to pursue their dreams and interests. However, being a hunter is a special privilege, only attained by taking a deadly exam with an extremely low success rate.

Gon Freecss, a 12-year-old boy with the hope of finding his missing father, sets out on a quest to take the Hunter Exam. Along the way, he picks up three companions who also aim to take the dangerous test: the revenge-seeking Kurapika, aspiring doctor Leorio Paladiknight, and a mischievous child the same age as Gon, Killua Zoldyck.

As the four aspiring hunters embark on a perilous adventure, they fight for their dreams while defying the odds.

Such a good anime. Good characters, development, is simply flawless. A pity that the manga does not have a consolidated end yet, but I have faith that one day the author will be able to finish his creation, despite his condition. Important to point out that the villains are extremely well built, as well as the protagonists. I really like Chrollo Lucilfer, although in the arc in which he appears in the anime he is not very well developed. Despite the fact that he is not well developed, he remains a great villain because of this because of this lack of development, because he shows ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (12/62 eps)
After hearing so many good things about this show I had to check it out, then after watching it for a bit I had to drop it. And no I'm not going to like the 2011 version more.

The only character I remotely enjoy is Kurapika. Killua is typical shonen edge boi so far and Gon is unremarkable. Leorio exists... I don't see anything special or endearing about this cast. Interesting considering that Yu Yu Hakusho has arguably the greatest cast of all time and this is written by the same person so he should know how to make interesting characters. Perhaps I am simply too ...

I cannot recommend this anime for anything but comparison since the 2011 anime came out. While there may be a bias on my part having seen the 2011 adaptation first, if I had seen this version first I likely would have never stuck with the series to become a part of the fandom.

There are a couple of things this series has over the later adaptation: the first episode actually introduces a certain character, even though it never makes it to the famously large arc for that decision to pay off. 1999 also has the original take on Phase 2 of the Hunter's Exam, changed in ...
