Description
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.

Hunter X Hunter rules!   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

Recently, I just watched the anime and it ruled!!! The anime is somewhat different from the manga since it has some extra bits! ! Unfortunately, the anime is TOO short- it is only up to Greed Island. I seriously wish there is more of Hunter X Hunter-the characters are so lovable! (=.=. And I am not a pedo. I am the same age as Gon and Killua so it is okay to like them!)
Because of my age, I am sort of freaked out at the Chimera Ant stuff since the storyline is TOO mature now (too much blood and gore?) Actually, after reading more of it, I am not so freaked out. You begin to like the new storyline (sort of). Yet I still really want to arc to progress and finish!
But nevertheless, Hunter X Hunter is still a great read! I am a girl but still, I think this manga is awesome! There is action, adventure and... frienship-which is quite rare nowadays (excluding One Piece, fairy tail etc)
Still, I think this is a great read and definitely worth it! And for all of you guys bad mouthing Togashi's current art and stuff I say:
Screw u guys.
-Sorry since it sounds quite mean, but yeah.
Anyways, it must be hard for a sick mangaka to draw... And the art is still clear and nice! ^.^

Overall, (I believe) Hunter X Hunter is an amazing read!

One of the best mangas there is. It starts rather slow and dull but it gets alot more exciting and better.
I think it is nearly as good as One Piece (which in my opinion is shaping up to be the most epic manga ever)

My 1 huge complaint: "The King" looks exactly like Cell from DBZ.

the manga is great, the people who cannot understand that people change over time should not watch it, because obviously, if the character is on his hunt, millions are dying, and a close friend died, HE MUST ACT LIKE THE OPTIMISTIC KID HE WAS BEFORE. If you are going to complain about the chimera ant art, than you have no real taste for rue manga.

My favourite manga for different reasons   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

Hunter x Hunter is my favourite manga because of one reason.

That reason is that the two main characters grow during the entire manga.

I love Gon and Killua (could care less about the whining Kurapica or the annoying Leorio), and these two characters grow exceptionally much during the entire manga that you won't even recognize them anymore if you compare the first volume with the ant arc.

Gon is your typical goody two shoes that is naive, pretty dumb, but very strong and has a lot of talent (Goku/Naruto anyone?). Killua is the opposite; he is a cold blooded assassin (could care less if he killed someone), very manipulative and very smart (and also very talented).

Now these main characters look very stereotypical, and they're nothing special, because these type of characters can be found in any other manga. However, HxH breaks away from the stereotyping and develops the characters into 3 dimensional people. A lot of people hate the Greed Island arc (they go into a virtual game where they can really die and collect cards), but for me it's the best. Not only do I love the whole concept of the game (well thought out Togashi!), it's also where Gon and Killua changed drastically from their original personalities.

In the Greed Island arc we see how Gon changes from a naive, dumb kid, to someone who HAS to prove himself and has to use his strength to get there AT ALL COSTS (aka; he's a maniac), and he can't do it without Killua either. Killua transformed from a cold, manipulative kid, to a best friend that would do ANYTHING for Gon, literally anything. Gon and Killua have grown on each other so much that it changed them for good; the best friends would die for one another and it has changed their personalities.

No longer do we have the goody two shoes and naive child Goku .. *cough* I mean Gon who believes he can be friends with anyone. Now we have a Gon who would kill anyone without a second thought if they would try and hurt his existing friends (especially Killua). He loses his mind when he is in a state like that. It's such a refreshing turn on a stereotypical character like that. In the latest chapters (around 290) you can really see how scary Gon has become; you won't recognize the nice, naive kid anymore.

Killua's wall has broken down and went from a manipulative, could-care-less-about-the-world kid to a heartwarming person who would help out other people, and he will always stand next to Gon and help him out. He doesn't hide the fact that Gon means everything to him, and will always try and protect Gon (I swear these two are gay sometimes). Usually characters like this would never change so drastically like Killua did, which is why it's such a joy to read about both Killua and Gon.

So because these two characters grow so much during the entire manga, HxH has become my favourite because of Killua and Gon's friendship.

HxH can have the best, most thought-out battles in shounen manga, but for me, it's these two characters that count the most. Interesting battles won't make me keep reading, developing characters will. So if you are also interested how characters can change, this is definitely a manga for you.

Starts off good but...

This manga starts off interesting. The story is unique and there are a lot of characters. It's a great manga to read if you're bored, at first...

As soon as you get to the Greed Island Arc (maybe around volume 15?), the story starts to DRAG on like there is no end. It seems like it's a filler arc. I kept reading just to see the result and man was I disappointed.

Then next came the Chimera Ant Arc, and it just ruined the manga. It has absolutely no relation to the main story. It's even more dragging than Greed Island! What's worse is that the ART COMPLETELY CHANGES. I'm not sure if the mangaka switched or he had some problems, but the art is ridculous. It's almost to the point where stick figures would be better.

I RECOMMEND, you read this manga ONLY until they enter Greed Island. If you read any further than that, you will be wasting your time and be sadly disappointed. Your outlook on this manga will be ruined if you read any further than that. If you don't believe me, just read the MU forums and see for yourself.

HxH is currently the best Shounen Jump manga out there. The characters in HxH actually _think_ and don't just do whatever they please, everything is carefully planned and explained and the flow of story is simply mind-blowing eg. the Gen'ei Ryodan arc is one of the best written arcs ever in manga history. Many people say they don't like the current Chimera Ant arc but I like it a lot. Although the King does look like a villain from DB. smile I am so happy that HxH will return in January, even if it was that usual ten chapters.

Too much info

Without question this is one of the better mangas out there to read, enough said. Only annoyance is the authors need of over complacating everything. Almost any explanation of something has just too much information. Not that its done and thought out well, but alot of the info isnt nessarcy for the reader to know in such detail. After all its a manga not a novel. Otherwise though good stuff

Alright, regarding the other comments on this page I have my own to add to them. The main character is "undoubtedly" Gon. You did read the manga, right? Okay, just checking. There's so many subliminal meanings that can be deciphered from the ant arc that it's ridiculous. For instance, I'm pretty sure the chimera ant queen was created from a human mishap. This can be compared to the weapons like the atomic bombs, guns, etc that humans have crafted and have taken WAY more than 500,000 lives. Now the corrupt officials are making the hunter association take care of it. I don't like the unfair criticism against the Hunter x Hunter because the mangaka is sick. Due to the fact he's not able to develop the storyline, it becomes stagnant. Therefore, it too easy to create harsh criticism while no development in plot is occuring. Grant it the ant chapter will suck if he doesn't finish it well, but that goes for every manga, too. I believe this is a great chance for Gon's "limitless" potential to come forth or maybe even Ging will arrive to help. It's pretty awesome how the manga started so pure and innocent then turned into the dark reality of what the Hunter x Hunter world is truly like. If you can't grasp this knowledge go read a kiddy comic. --Adios. **GET BETTER SOON YOSHIHIRO TOGASHI

Spoiler (highlight to view)
I agree with robbit in many ways... It was all pretty good till the author suddenly wet crazy and decided gigantic mutant ants were cool and scary. The art got really awful around then too... it looked like it was a rough draft and no where near complete. But I can't really blame the author, cuz apparently that's when her illness started... but if u ask me I'd rather she put it on hold then give us some crap. Up till the ant ark everything was pretty cool, except sometimes it's dubious who's the real main character.
