About Hunter X Hunter Manga Volume 1

Hunter X Hunter 1 features story and art by Yoshihiro Togashi.

When Gon learns his father Ging - whom he thought was dead - is a famous Hunter, he aspires to follow in his footsteps and track down monsters, treasures and words of magic. But first, he has to pass the arduous and dangerous Hunter test. Gon quickly befriends two other Hunter wannabes: Kurapika, who's motivated by vengeance, and money-hungry Leorio. The adventure begins when the would-be hunters run through a forest filled with dangerous animals - and even more dangerous rivals. Test-taker Hisoka is killing off the competition!

Absolutely Necessary for Fans of the Anime

by -

I really enjoyed this volume for a couple of reasons. First of all, it was a fun, exciting way start to the story. This volume does an excellent job of transitioning you into the more complex, serious content to come. Second of all, if you have seen the anime beforehand, you won't feel like it's the same content all over again. There's a lot of content in this volume that expands on and deviates from what you see in the anime.

In terms of negatives, I can't think of many. I personally enjoy Togashi's style. He has a lot of panels with interesting perspectives. However, the art can be a bit inconsistent at times. This isn't severe enough to constitute a major problem in my opinion.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this item.

This is a good series


Not all people will find this to be an amazing series or some people will find it mainstream or overrated. But I personally love this I think most will to!

Hunter X Hunter is a fantastic shonen series and one of the best out there.

Definitely the best series!

by -

Hunter x Hunter is definitely the best shonen series out there, both in manga and in anime form. Each character is thoroughly developed and they really feel like they could be real people. The action scenes and sequences are very suspenseful and thrilling, and are sure to keep you entertained, especially during the second part of the series with the Chimera Ants.

I'd recommend this series to anyone, since it is enjoyable to people of all ages and genders.

The author of this series also got off of his hiatus for a while, and a new volume or two are going to come in the next year or so, so you have something to look forward to if you decide to pick up this series!

Great series! I watched the anime before reading the manga and I was surprised at how much the first volume covers.

One of the Best Shonen!

by -

The Hunter x Hunter manga is in my opinion a magnificent piece of a cultural phenomena within manga that people ought to read. I'm a huge fan of this series, I've watched both the old version and the 2011 version of the anime, as well as the movies, and despite being really good, the manga really outshines the anime. The pacing is excellent not too slow, but also not fast enough that it doesn't develop anything and constantly keeps the world developing. The book itself's pages felt a little thinner than usual, but I quickly got used to. The story is terrific, and is very entertaining, while the art keeps you engaged, I've heard complaints before about the art not being a clear indicator in fight scenes although I absolutely loved the fight scenes in the manga. I think that if you're a fan of shonen in the slightest this is a must buy.

A perfect read for those looking for a different “artstyle”

by -

Usually when I’m looking for new manga to read I try to find titles with a unique and clever “artstyle”, and Hunter X Hunter is so no exception; the artwork is so unique and clever that I’m begging to read more after the first volume. This book was also delivered in perfect quality
