Manga of the Week: Hunter x Hunter, by Yoshihiro Togashi


In this edition of Manga of the Week, our star is not a shoujo, nor a yaoi. It’s a shonen! =O From the same author of Yu Yu Hakusho, Yoshihiro Togashi, here I present you with Hunter X Hunter! ❤


Goodreads blurb:

Hunters are a special breed, dedicated to tracking down treasures, magical beasts, and even other men. 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.


Gon might be a country boy, but he has high aspirations. Despite his Aunt Mito’s protests, Gon decides to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a legendary Hunter. The Hunter hopefuls begin their journey by storm-tossed ship, where Gon meets Leorio and Kurapika, the only other applicants who aren’t devastated by bouts of seasickness.

Having survived the terrors of the high seas, Gon and his companions now have to prove their worth in a variety of tests in order to find the elusive Exam Hall. And once they get there, will they ever leave alive…?

Why I think it’s a worth-reading manga: this is TONS of fun! The main characters are ambulant comedies and the adventure and fights are awesome! Besides, there is two boys that I ship hard here, despite their very pure friendship on the series, haha! It’s one of the best shonens that I have ever read ❤ I admit that I haven’t reach the end, as this series publication in Brazil suffered a lot to follow the steps of the original one in Japan, so my collection is sadly incomplete 😦 BUT SOMEDAY, PEOPLE! Soon enough!

That’s, it! Thank you for reading ❤ Oh, I never have read Yu Yu Hakusho. Am I loosing something or am I just fine without it??
