It’s been a long time since I watched the Hunter x Hunter simulcast but I’ve loved that the series has gotten a lot of fans since its 2011 debut thanks to showing on a lot of services. The property began being added to Netflix back in 2019 with Viz Media bringing on partial season batches of it so that there has been about half of it or so on there – though it was still missing dozens of episodes. With four “seasons” of it having been added so far, the show was recently set to make its departure on the streaming service as of March 7th, 2021.

Thankfully, the show had the expiration removed with a quick renewal/extension from the rights holder and the four-season series is still available on the service for the foreseeable future.

Series concept: A Hunter is one who travels the world doing all sorts of dangerous tasks. From capturing criminals to searching deep within uncharted lands for any lost treasures. Gon is a young boy whose father disappeared long ago, being a Hunter. He believes if he could also follow his father’s path, he could one day reunite with him.

After becoming 12, Gon leaves his home and takes on the task of entering the Hunter exam, notorious for its low success rate and high probability of death to become an official Hunter. He befriends the revenge-driven Kurapika, the doctor-to-be Leorio and the rebellious ex-assassin Killua in the exam, with their friendship prevailing throughout the many trials and threats they come upon taking on the dangerous career of a Hunter.
