The VIZ Media goodness continues! You read that right, budding adventurers—Hunter x Hunter (2011) is coming to Funimation.
Starting July 31, you’ll be able to stream the first 75 episodes of the incredible Hunter x Hunter (2011), subbed and dubbed, on Funimation in the United States and Canada—for the first time ever.
Hunter x Hunter (2011) is considered by many as a renowned and key shounen series, topping dozens of “Best of the Decade” lists for studio Madhouse’s depiction of action, emotion and adventure!
The anime is adapted from the manga series of the same name by Yoshihiro Togashi, the legendary mangaka who created Yu Yu Hakusho and Level E. The series started in 1998 and has since become one of Shueisha’s highest-selling manga series ever, with over 78 million copies in circulation.
It was previously adapted into an anime from Nippon Animation in 1999, running for 62 episodes. The 1999 adaptation is well-loved, but many fans consider the 2011 series to be more faithful to the manga.
Synopsis: “Young Gon dreams of following in his father’s path and becoming a Hunter, an elite class of adventurer with legendary skills. But to make the grade he’ll first have to pass the extremely difficult and dangerous Hunter Qualification Exam.
“His journey leads him on the shared path of the Hunter’s exam, to lands beyond imagination and to friends who grow closer with each new trial. As the difficulty of the challenges mounts, will Gon and his friends prevail or will they wash out like so many others?”
This news arrives just a couple of weeks after we announced that the original 220 episodes of Naruto would be coming to Funimation as well.
We’re so excited that these two legendary shounen series have finally joined the Funimation family, and we can’t wait to share more exciting news in the coming weeks and months!
