Beginning in 2011, the series retells the story of Yoshihiro Togashi's original manga (there was an earlier TV version which began in 1999). In the story, Gon Freecs' father abandoned him as a baby in order to become a Hunter, an elite class with a license to go anywhere or do almost anything. Now 12 years old, Gon wishes to follow in his father's footsteps and become a great Hunter. While Gon faces the unexpected challenges the Hunter Examination throws at him, he makes friends with three other candidates: Kurapika, Leorio, and Killua.
Hiroshi Koujina (Rainbow - Nisha Rokubō no Shichinin, Neuro - Supernatural Detective) directed the anime at MADHOUSE (Death Note, NANA), and Atsushi Maekawa (Dragon Ball Z, Fresh Precure!) was in charge of the scripts. Takahiro Yoshimatsu ("Something Yoshimatsu" of Future GPX Cyber Formula, Slayers) designed the characters, while Toshio Nakatani produced.
