After reuniting with Gon and his friends, Kurapika explained to them the risks he bears because of his abilities. Believing that his target of revenge is no longer alive and the search for his fallen comrade's eyes could truly begin, Kurapika soon after receives a message informing him that all the Spiders still lived. After much discussion between his friends, Gon, Kurapika and company decided to hunt after the one Spider member who's ability could ultimately result in Kurapika's defeat and death. Based on the manga by Togashi Yoshihiro.

The first OVA continues one of the unresolved plotlines from the 62 episode Hunter x Hunter anime.

This review is for anyone who has seen the original series before the original. On the insistence of a friend, I binged the new series. I became addicted and went back to finish the originals, and here I am. All I have to say is: if you're here after watching the original series and liking it, you're not going to be disappointed.

The Yorknew/Phantom Troupe Arc is easily one of my faves, so perhaps this is a little biased. However, it's hard to refute the fact that the plot is anything but well-written. The story is structured in a genius way where all logic is read more
