Hunter x Hunter (2011)

ハンター×かけるハンター

Hunter x Hunter is set in a world where Hunters exist to perform all manner of dangerous tasks like capturing criminals and bravely searching for lost treasures in uncharted territories. Twelve-year-old Gon Freecss is determined to become the best Hunter possible in hopes of finding his father, who was a Hunter himself and had long ago abandoned his young son. However, Gon soon realizes the path to achieving his goals is far more challenging than he could have ever imagined. Along the way to becoming an official Hunter, Gon befriends the lively doctor-in-training Leorio, vengeful Kurapika, and rebellious ex-assassin Killua. To attain their own goals and desires, together the four of them take the Hunter Exam, notorious for its low success rate and high probability of death. Throughout their journey, Gon and his friends embark on an adventure that puts them through many hardships and struggles. They will meet a plethora of monsters, creatures, and characters—all while learning what being a Hunter truly means.

Finally watched this ‘classic’. I was surprised this show got me hooked pretty early on and I think until ep 75 it only got better with every episode. Really loved it! Then, in comparison to the first half, the second half’s story was pretty bad. It was like ‘We need a reason why that happens. Ah okay, then we just give the already overpowered character one more power’. I’m not sure if I would have dropped or skipped that arc if it were not for some cool new characters. Also, in my opinion the end is semi-satisfying in many aspects but of course that is a matter of taste.

So I would give the first half a really high score and the second half a considerably smaller one. Would be interested to know if someone has a different/opposing opinion, though.

Watched through it now too. I definitely agree that everything until ~75 was the best part of it with the Ant Arc feeling a bit too stretched out, though I personally liked the ending. We see Gon accomplish his anime-long goal of finding his father and get introduced to the following plot, which instantly works as an amazing teaser for following seasons.
