Description

Plucky Gon’s quest to find his dad leads him into a whole world of crazy adventure.

Hunters are a special breed, dedicated to tracking down treasures, magical beasts, and even other people. But such pursuits require a license, and less than one in a hundred thousand can pass the grueling qualification exam. Those who do pass gain access to restricted areas, amazing stores of information, and the right to call themselves Hunters.

The day of the great auction arrives, but all the goods have gone missing! It turns out that the mafia learned of the Spiders' plans and sent their top ten fighters to take care of things. These "Shadow Beasts" whisked away the auction items to safety, and the dread Spiders are hunting them down. With all this distraction and some questionable help from Hisoka, Kurapika gets closer to vengeance against the Spiders. But when the fight comes down to a battle to the death with one of the strongest members of the troupe, will Kurapika's hidden powers be enough to ensure victory?
