My personal review of the Hunter x Hunter anime. Personally I really like the series and I've rewatched the anime multiple times.
The story of Hunter x Hunter focuses on a young boy named Gon Freecss, who one day discovers that his father is alive and doing well. He learns that his father, Ging Freecss, is a legendary Hunter. Despite the fact that his father abandoned Gon with his relatives in order to pursue his dreams, Gon becomes determined to follow in his father’s footsteps, pass the Hunter Examination, and eventually find his father to prove himself as a Hunter in his own right.
This series consist of eight major arcs, five of them are present in the anime. These five arcs are the Hunter Exam arc, Zoldyck Family arc, Heavens Arena arc, Yorknew City arc and the Greed Island arc, which consists of 92 episodes (28 episodes coming from the OVA series). The arcs that have continued in the manga after the anime ended are the Chimera Ant arc, 13th Hunter Chairman Election arc and the Dark Continent Expedition arc. The Chimera Ant arc being overall the longest in the manga with 132 chapters. It is presumed that the arcs will be present in the new Hunter x Hunter (2011) anime serie.
The animation of Hunter x Hunter is probably the thing that gives me the nostalgic feeling and the feeling; Man, I wanna be there too. The animation is rather average compared to other shows that were airing around the same time.
The Soundtracks of Hunter x Hunter are great. The first opening theme "Ohayou" by Keno is probably the thing that fans of the anime will never forget. It's just a pure nostalgia rush and the song is great. The second opening theme "Taiyou wa Yoru mo Kagayaite" by Wino is one of my favorite songs and fits perfectly to the time where the anime was playing, the fight against Genei Ryodan. The OVA also consist of great songs for example "Pray" by Wish and "Believe in Tomorrow" by Sunflower's Garden. This show has alot of good songs and soundtracks and they deserve a good score.
Hunter x Hunter consist of four main characters.
The story is very interesting and the music is great. This anime isn't the typical "If I believe in my friends I can overcome anything with my friends" Shounen crap (Fairy Tail). The animation is very nice, taken into consideration when the anime was made. Personally I think the animation has alot of good sides compared to modern animation since nowadays the animation is always done by computers. The characters develop really well during the show. Overcoming fears, getting revenge, how the characters minds shape and alot of memorable flashbacks and events. Hunter x Hunter may not fit impatient people, but it hit the nail with me. I personally loved it and I will stay as a fan for the years to come.
