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!
