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. Kurapica finally reveals to Gon, Killua and Leorio the reason why his nen abilities are so high along with the restrictions on it. He thinks his reason for revenge is done, but it is not - the Spiders are still alive! This OVA focuses on Kurapica's unending quest to avenge his "dead" tribe.

Similar to Hunter x Hunter, the art is good but nothing special although it does continue in the same vein as the original anime so viewers will be used to it. The soundtrack reuses a lot read more

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.

Fans of the original series will note that Hunter x Hunter is not a terribly fast-paced anime, and tends to build the story around the characters and their interactions with one another, rather than with action. It lures the audience in by showing them all the interesting depths of the characters -their goals, their dreams, their struggles- and makes read more

As I stated before, the original Hunter X Hunter Anime ended towards the end of the Yorkshin Arc, cutting off right after the gang finally gets back together. However that wouldn’t be the end of this Version of Hunter X Hunter. Oh no, for as you see, Nippon Animation was far from done with this series. What they decided to do once the televised run was over was to simply switch format, continuing the show in an OVA format instead. Hell, the Episode count doesn’t even reset with these OVAs, so you could just consider them Episodes 61-92 of the TV Series, which is how read more
