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. Kurapica finally reveals to Gon, Killua and Leorio the reason why his nen abilities are so high along with the restrictions on it.

As a continuation of the first series, you can expect the OVA to fill in much of those undesired loose ends and plot holes that cropped up throughout the series. These episodes focus on Kurapica's quest for revenge and his eternal hunt for his clan member's eyes.

Hunter x Hunter is a 1999 anime series that ran for 62 episodes, along with a handful of OVAs, directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi, produced by Nippon Animation, and based on the manga of the same name by Yoshihiro Togashi. It tells the story of 12-year-old Gon Freecs, as he journeys to find Ging, his father. That’s as specific as I can go, because throughout Hunter x Hunter, Gon and his best friend Killua go on some strange adventures, only loosely connected by said premise.

On the production side, the 62 episode TV series is very impressive. The colors are muted but feel natural, and the backgrounds read more
