Gon, Kurapica, and Leorio arrive at Kukuroo Mountain only to find out that they cannot get close to the Zoldyck family estate. The Zoldyck family owns the mountain and all of the surrounding forest and the entire region is gated shut. There is a guard outpost immediately outside of the gate, but instead of serving as a guard, the man working in there actually cleans up the mess created by the watchdog whenever there are intruders into the grounds. Gon, unwilling to give up on "rescuing" Killua, learns from the gatekeeper that the actual door is the massive stone gate and anyone who enters via that path will not be attacked by the watchdog. Leorio tries to pull and push on the gate, to no avail. The gatekeeper informs them that the gate opens up different amounts of stone slabs based only on the strength of the person; however, the least amount of strength anyone needs to open the smallest portion of the door requires two tons of strength on each side. In addition, the protagonists are shocked to hear that Killua opened up three doors, making the gate 16 tons, when he arrived home not long ago. Gon's naturally candid character that allows so many people to like him and to help him out will also play a role in how this episode plays out.

I have to say this is the best and greatest anime of all time! (and i've seen a looot!!) It's not one of the typical 0815 shounen anime you might think of. It's full of action, fantastic plot, great character development, feelings and emotional. It has the right amount of comedy and drama and the characters are unique and individual. watch it regardless any gender. 10/10

avatar

Absolute Masterpiece. It's a mixed bag and doesn't stick to one or two themes. Every arc is very different to each other like: Exam, Business, Mafia, Politics, Biological Warfare, Science, etc. and it goes on! The world of HxH is very diverse and interesting that you will crave for even more, very similar to that of One Piece. Also this anime has antagonists that are very well written and is nothing like in other shows.

One of my favorite anime's of all time. Still gives me smile on my face even after watching it 2 times already. I definitely recommend this to all who want to experience really good anime.

avatar

My first anime ever and I couldn't have loved it more. The Chimera and Yorknew arc in particular are amazing.

avatar

It makes You Better Person :joy::sweat_smile:

best shounen anime ever made

avatar

This is the best shounen of all time (for me at least.) Watch it and make people watch it!

avatar

definitely one of the best stories I have seen in animes, I read the books some time ago and wanted to give the anime a try, and I must say it really gives life to it !! I didn't put a 10 because some points are bothering me throughout the story and it's not the best production, but I totally love the universe !!

avatar

definitely the best anime i've ever watched in my entire life

avatar

Incredibly impressive, each one arc is an amazing story worth rewatching over and over again on it's own, maybe the best part about HxH is that it doesn't rely on tropes and creates original scenarios.

The Top Anime Classics To Watch Now (Including Hunter x Hunter)

Detective Conan

This anime is also known as “Case Closed” and as you can guess from its title, it is a detective series. The story has a twist, where the main character’s age has been reversed, so he looks like a child, instead of his own age. He gets into a lot of trouble while trying to solve his cases, especially because he is still only a high school student. He tags along with his best friend’s dad, who is actually a private detective.

Naruto Shippuden

This is one of the first animes I remember watching on my tv. The story follows a boy on his path to become the strongest ninja there is. In his way, there are many enemies that he must defeat in order to truly be the best there ever was. With a lot of enemies and also later some friends becoming enemies, it is a lot to deal with for anyone, especially for a young boy like him.

Hunter x Hunter

When Gon gets abandoned by his father, he must learn to navigate through life without him. His father is a well-known hunter and Gon decides to take after him and become a hunter himself. Besides wanting to look for animals, treasures and criminals, he is also determined to find his father as well. On his journey, he meets a lot of other hunters and encounters things he never expected to see.
