Hunter x Hunter: manga and anime

Hunter x Hunter is a manga written and drawn by Yoshihiro Togashi, also known for his previous work Yu of ghosts, serialized, between various pauses also caused by the author’s health problems, in the weekly Weekly Shonen Jump since 1998.

In Italy, the manga is published by Planet Manga, who has published three reprints.

In 1999 Nippon Animation produced an animated series in 62 episodes, which aired until 2001. The anime was broadcast in Italy on Italia 1 from 23 January 2007 to 24 January 2008 initially in full version and, from episode 16, entitled Rock × Scissors × Heart, was censored by the Mediaset due to scenes and dialogues a bit “pushed”.

The first series was followed, from 2002 to 2004, three series of OVA always produced by the same company, which take the plot from the saga of York Shin City, where the first series was interrupted, and cover the entire saga of Greed Island. In total there are 30 OVAs and having been created specifically for the home video market, in Japan, they have never been broadcast on a television network while in Italy they were always broadcast on Italia 1 from 29 January to 17 May 2008.

Madhouse later created a new series, which aired from 2 October 2011 in Japan on NTV channel. It is a reboot of the first anime: it recounts the whole story of the previous series and, starting from episode 76, continues with the next part of the manga’s plot.

A great success of the manga (two million copies sold in Japan alone!), Which has generated equally popular cartoons and RPGs, finally arrives in the Italian edition! From the imagination of Yoshihiro Togashi, the author of “Yuu Yuu of the ghosts”, a new comic series in original format with the amazing adventures of four characters all hunting for the coveted license of Hunter … the Hunter!
