Watch Hunter X Hunter

Hunter X Hunter is a popular anime, or Japanese animation, show. It was based off of a manga, also known as a Japanese comic, and closely follows the same story line. The show centers around the main character, a young boy named Gon Freecss. Gon's father was a great hunter. Hunters are adventurous sorts who brave wilderness and danger in order to complete many different tasks, including finding various treasures and studying or capturing specific creatures. Unfortunately, this meant that Gon was left with family members at a young age, and has not seen his father in quite a while.

The danger of the lifestyle of a hunter does not turn Gon off, however. In fact, Gon decides that he too wants to become one of the world's best hunters. He is not only interested in the excitement of the profession, but hopes that one day, his travels will lead him to his father.

In order to be a great hunter, Gon trains as hard as he can in his small town. Eventually, he feels that he is ready to pass the Hunter Examination, a test that every would-be hunter must complete. Gon sets out on the first leg of his journey, ready to face whatever the world throws at him.

Right away, Gon's friendly and outgoing personality begins to make him friends. Several other people who are also taking the Hunter Examination notice how strong and clever Gon is. Gon decides to work together with three others, hoping that teamwork will help them pass the rigorous test. However, passing the test is only the first part of Gon's journey. Over the course of the series, Gon and the many friends he meets will face numerous challenges. As Gon continues on his journey, he encounters creatures he never expected to meet, and also faces any adversity that comes his way.
