To hunt or be hunted. Every living species abides by this tenet. In the world of Hunter x Hunter, a Hunter is a special breed of human that tracks down information, treasures, magical beasts, and even other people. Young Gon Freecs is on a mission to become a great Hunter like his father before him, but to reach that level, he’ll have to prove his worth.
The world is in a state of red alert. A dangerous new species of Chimera Ants has been identified in the secretive country of NGL, and it’s up to Gon, Killua and a select crew of Hunters to head off this threat by taking out the Ant King. However, their opponents aren’t simple and ruthlessly evil. The majority of them were born from consumed humans, and traces of their memories and feelings remain in their present deformed state. But can the Hunters pity the hunted despite the fact that they plan to enslave and devour humanity?
With the world in a state of panic over the dangerous new species, Chairman Netero and the Hunter Association are charged with the task of exterminating this threat by any means necessary. However, their opponents have now gained an understanding of nen, a special and incredible power only privy to Hunters.
Though fierce battles between elite Hunters and the Chimera Ant King’s Royal Guards are taking place, the fate of both humans and Ants rests in the outcome of the battle between the Chimera Ant King and Chairman Netero. Despite his advanced age, Netero still proves to be the most powerful Hunter and perhaps the only man capable of taking out the seemingly invincible King...
