Hunter×Hunter is a classic adventure anime portraying the journey of a young boy called Gon. Some great works like Dragon Ball and Pokemon have similar genres, but Hunter×Hunter has its unique charm.
Over the years, the original manga of Hunter×Hunter has been adapted into several anime series, anime films and OVAs.
Gon, the cute hunter, has managed to leave quite an impression on readers and viewers alike.
On 13th July, Funimation announced that the Hunter×Hunter anime (2011) would be available to stream in the UK and Ireland on Funimation starting 17th July.
All the 148 episodes of the acclaimed anime will be available with English subtitles as well as in English dubbed versions.
Hunter×Hunter has inspired two anime series – the first series aired from 1999-2001, and the second one aired from 2011-2014. The Nippon animation studio produced the first anime series while studio Madhouse presented the second.
The second anime series doesn’t start the story from where the OVA of the first series ended; instead, it starts the story from the beginning of the manga.
Crunchyroll provided English subtitled simulcasts of the episodes in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and other countries while it premiered in Japan.
The anime is directed by Hiroshi Kojina, and the script is written by Atsushi Maekawa and Tsutomu Kamishiro. It aired on Nippon TV, and Viz Media later licensed it for North America.
Not only is the Hunter×Hunter (2011) anime available on Crunchyroll and Funimation, it is also available on Animelab and HBO Max.
Madman Entertainment made the series available on Animelab, and HBO Max started streaming the first 99 episodes from 23rd June.
Hunter x Hunter is a Shonen anime adapted from the manga of the same name. It is written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi.
The story follows the adventures of a young boy, Gon discovering that his dead father wasn’t really dead but was a legendary Hunter.
Instead of feeling dejected, Gon decides to follow the footsteps of his father and become a great Hunter himself. The job of a Hunter isn’t an easy one, and Gon needs to pass an exam to become an official hunter.
He makes friends on this journey, and they all must help each other overcome any obstacles.
