Hunter x Hunter was one of my favorite action anime of all time, and while it wrapped up with the Chimera Ants, the manga has continued, and now VIZ media is going to bring the first movie over to the US as well. Focusing on Kurapika, who anime fans will remember was largely ignored in the last season on HxH so ill be glad to see the blonde chain wheeler again. Personally I find myself not too excited about this new story. Its not one that was in the manga instead being an original story about someone who steals his eyes. In the film, someone has stolen Kurapika’s eyes—and according to him, it was another survivor from his clan who were massacred for their Scarlet Eyes! Gon and Killua begin investigating on his behalf, but shortly after they’ve begun, the Phantom Troupe appears! The HUNTER X HUNTER anime series is based on the popular HUNTER X HUNTER manga originally created by Yoshihiro Togashi.

The action-packed movie, which is based on the popular HUNTER X HUNTER anime series, will be released on February 20th as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack. The Combo Pack’s MSRP will be $29.98 U.S. / $34.99 CAN. A standard DVD-only edition will also be available with an MSRP of $19.98 U.S. / $24.99 CAN.
