Synopsis

Nen: the hidden source of energy and potential that runs through everyone, and gives those that master it a source of great power. Inside Nen is the potential for limitless light and limitless darkness. The Hunter Association has arisen to control access to it. Hunters come in many shapes and forms, and with many different appetites - but all of them have learned to master Nen, and use it to chase wealth, power, and their dreams.

The greatest and most powerful Hunter is Isaac Netero, chairman of the Hunter Association. Decades ago he sealed away Jed, a Hunter who had mastered the use of On, the dark "shadow" of Nen. Now On users have reappeared at the Heaven's Arena "Battle Olympia" tournament. For Netero, this is the last mission: to protect the Association and the world from a threat driven by hatred and the thirst for revenge. And he's going to need all the help he can get in order to succeed.

Hunter x Hunter is a series that often defies expectations. It is almost as if Togashi weaves magic into his writing to make it unpredictable and Madhouse uses their magic to create a richly animated version that shows just as much heart. This magic is what creates the renowned television series today. But does Hunter x Hunter: The Last Mission have this same magic? Well, let’s see –

A plot that centers around revenge is not a new concept in Hunter x Hunter. Two of its main characters have had revenge as a motivation during at least one point in the original anime series. However, read more

It may be true that the two movies representing the TV show are far inferior to its parental installment, but I'm going to disagree on the fact that most people here are bashing this movie for being extremely clichéd and mundane.

To start off this review, I'll let you know that I am a huge fan of the series, but this movie was on the disappointing side. The plot is set around somewhere after the Greed Island arc and the beginning of the Chimera Ant arc after both our protagonists Gon and Killua have met up with Kite and take a detour from their journey read more

I can't believe I am giving such a poor score for one of my favorite shounen series, but this score will do justice to this film.

Like most anime movies based on a running TV series, the trailer and the first five minutes of the film is unfortunately better than the rest of the film.

A lot of your favorite characters and some current characters in the arc will make an appearance, but most importantly you hope the film will reveal some interesting information about the Hunter x Hunter universe that the TV show didn't get a chance to show.

Well if you were expecting read more

Hunter x Hunter, a series renowned for its unique and intelligent battles, is one of the best lengthy shounen/action series I've ever seen. However, this movie throws all of that out of the window of an extraordinarily tall tower and prefers to use more senseless, "beat-em-up with the power of friendship" tactics.

The story is pretty basic: A small group of refugees band together with a powerful rival of the Hunter Association in order to get revenge on them. The story takes place at Heaven's Arena, the tower where Gon and Killua fought while learning the basics of Nen. It brings back some characters from previous read more
