Gon's going home to share his Hunter success with Aunt Mito, but Whale Island has a surprise in store for Gon - a message from his father to "come and find me." The only clues Gon has to go on are a strange ring and a JoyStation memory card for the video game Greed Island. But the game is so rare it can only be found at the Yorknew auction - for an astronomical price. And anyone who plays gets sucked into the game, never to return!
Is that where Ging has gone? Gon needs to earn enough money to make a big on the game, but there's not much time left. And the evil Phantom Troupe have plans of their own for the auction...

Ratings & Reviews
Nice Bridge Between Arcs
by Michelle -
I enjoyed this volume because it provided a nice transition between story arcs. Gon gets some more information about Ging as well as quite a few unanswered questions. In addition, this volume introduces a lot of new, interesting characters. Togashi does a nice job building anticipation for the next volume and foreshawdowing events even farther down the road.
The intensity really picks up towards the end of the volume and gives you a taste of the darker direction the story is starting to take. Overally, I highly recommend this volume.
