Gon might be a country boy, but he has high aspirations. Despite his Aunt Mito's protests, Gon decides to follow in his father's footsteps and become a legendary Hunter. The Hunter hopefuls begin their journey by storm-tossed ship, where Gon meets Leorio and Kurapika, the only other applicants who aren't devastated by bouts of seasickness. Having survived the terrors of the high seas, Gon and his companions now have to prove their worth in a variety of tests in order to find the elusive Exam Hall. And once they get there, will they ever leave alive...?

Gon begins his quest to become one of the elite Hunters, but before the grueling licensing exam can be undertaken, he and his new friends have to overcome the challenge of even finding the exam site. The fantasy world and its exotic creatures are brought to life well by Yoshihiro Togashi's art, but the three main characters are blatant archetypes in both appearance and personality. Some of the chapters also suffer from the "mystery" syndrome, where one of the main characters figures something out and acts on it with the reader having no possible way to figure it out until they are told later when the character explains it to his companions. Also, this is only the first book in a large series, so things will surely be developed more in the future. Readers seeking an exciting survival challenge with bits of comedy and willing to put up with the shallow characters could do much worse than Hunter X Hunter.

The start of a great series. If you loved Yoshihiro Togashi's previous work you're in for a wild ride. The Hunter x Hunter series will keep you at the edge of your seat the entire time.

I own all 17 Hunter x Hunter books that are out right now and Can't wait to get the 18th and 19th. I have read all of them Multiple Times and still love it. However I disagree that it will be the next Poke'Mon or Yu'Gi'Oh. Its way to Violent for that age group.(In a good way) I would think more like the next Naruto. Can't Wait for the next one.
