posted on by Egan Loo
Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge revolves around Kurapika's "scarlet eyes"

Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump manga magazine is revealing the second piece of poster visual art for the Gekijō-ban Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge film. The magazine also revealed the outline of the film's all-new story:

Spoiler (highlight the following white text to read) Kurapika became a Hunter to take vengeance on the Phantom Troupe, a gang of thieves who massacred his clan. The Phantom Troupe sought out the Kurta Clan for their eyes, which turn scarlet when they get agitated. An unknown party has stolen Kurapika's "scarlet eyes," but Kurapika's life is saved with the help of Gon, Killua, and Leorio. The Phantom Troupe stands before Kurapika and the others, who are about to discover the true identity of the person with the No.4 spider tattoo.

Gekijō-ban Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge will open in theaters in Japan on January 12, 2013. The film's staff have noted that the first film in the Hunter x Hunter franchise will be a "dramatic action" film.
