Volume 1


Background Information

A manga created by Yoshihiro Togashi after he finished Yu Yu Hakusho.

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.

Fans often complain that Togashi's art in many chapters is horrible and he takes long breaks before resuming the series.

This is apparently due to unspecified health problems he has (in actuality he likes being lazy as hell and playing Nintendo 64 games).

Standing in the Battledome

Hunter x Hunter is generally accepted to rank somewhere above Claymore in power as an average but loses out to the HST verses due to having subpar destructive and durability feats.

Mid/high tiers generally range from at least large building level to town level+ with hypersonic/hypersonic+ speeds.

Meruem, the top tier character of the verse, has city level destructive capacity and durability, along with massively hypersonic speeds.
