HunterxHunter (2011) is a shonen action adventure anime that started airing in 2011 and finished its run in late 2014, the show was produced by studio Madhouse, and is currently being released in English. This version of HunterxHunter is a re-adaptation of the original source material, since the first adaptation was released in 1999. The re-adaptation includes two more arc’s from its older counterpart, but is still left unfinished due to constant hiatus’ by the mangaka. The mangaka Yoshihiro Togashi previously known for creating another successful 90s shonen Yu Yu Hakusho, is husband to Naoko Takeuchi who is the creator behind the hit shoujo manga Sailor Moon. HunterxHunter is a series that has been rising popularity recently as the Big 3 have started to dwindle in popularity and viewership, it currently sits at number 5 on MyAnimeList top anime. Some people myself included think of this as the best shonen anime to date, and a great anime by its own right and not only as a great shonen.
