Synopsis

Hunters are a special breed, dedicated to tracking down treasures, magical beasts, and even other men. But such pursuits require a license, and less than one in a hundred thousand can pass the grueling qualification exam. Those who do pass gain access to restricted areas, amazing stores of information, and the right to call themselves Hunters.

This my favorite manga of all time, so I may be a little biased when it comes to this review. I love every work that Yoshihiro Togashi puts out! I'm not exactly sure what a typical shounen is, so i'll just start by saying that it starts out with a boy named Gon Freecs going on the most challengeing hunt of his life, to find his elusive hunter father. And the story shows his development as a hunter throughout.

Story: 9/10
I give the story a 9 because the first 12 or so volumes had a great story and a lot character devolopment with the four main read more

Okay, to start off, I'm going to go on a little tirade about the early chapters of this manga's art. If you don't care or whatever, then keep scrolling until you see "TIRADE END", I guess, haha.

*TIRADE START*

When I read this manga, I was shocked that the art style of the manga that managed to tie with OP was so bad. It actually looked a lot like my current art style.

I was actually sort of happy.

You see, I'm an aspiring mangaka (bleh, I know that's not what you call it outside of Japan, but bleh), and I was always thinking that my art style read more

Hunter x Hunter could've been a masterpiece under certain circumstances. First of all, let me give you a short rating of it's arcs. The first one,'Hunter Exam arc' is a great introduction to the plot and the main characters' aims. Next up is the 'Zoldyck Family arc' ,which is the shortest arc. It can't be really described as 'boring' since plot has a regular flow. Next is the 'Heavens Arena arc' which is one of tho most boring arcs. It's boring for me because it takes so much time to explain 'nen' and it is so thoroughly described that whole chapters were only describing 'nen'. read more
