Hunter X Hunter Season 7 Plot
The story of Hunter X Hunter revolves around Gon Freecss. He was informed that his parents are dead. But one day, he learns that his father, Ging Freecss, is alive and has left his home to become a hunter to give an esteemed hunter examination. Hunters are shown as legal and superior members of humanity. Only rare people pass the reputed hunter examination and become licensed hunters, capable of tracing deep treasures and rare beasts in the world.
Gon decides to follow his father and become a hunter. He became friends with three other applicants of the Hunter examination; Kurapika, Leorio, and Killua Zoldyck.
Kurapika was the last member of the kurta clan, and he aims to become a hunter to avenge his clan and recover the scarlet-glowing eyes of his clan that was taken forcefully by thieves known as Phantom Troupe.
Leorio wanted to become a physician and pay the fees for his studies. Because of the financial benefits that hunters get, Leorio decided to appear for the hunter examination.
Killua Zoldyck is a 12-year-old boy who left his family. His family was also known as the world’s most notorious assassin family. After many attempts, Gon and his friends passed the hunter exam. But, Killua did not succeed because he was controlled by his brother, and he killed another applicant. He left his home out of embarrassment and guilt.
When the boys become legal hunters, they fight with a thief group called Phantom Troupe. Then, Gon and Killua enter a video game called Green Island to find Gon’s father, Ging.
