Hunter x Hunter Season 7: Is The Show Canceled For Good? (Everything To Know)

Must read

There are not just a few of us who hope for Hunter x Hunter season 7, there are a LOT of us asking these questions for 8 years now! So is it possible to see the seventh season? If it becomes a reality, we may have to wait, even until 2025 to enjoy the next installment of Hunter x Hunter. Despite the show being praised by critics and fans, the big question is if the series has ended for good. 

Hunter x Hunter Season 7: Will It Come Back? (All You Need To Know) 

Hunter × Hunter is an anime series that tells the story of a world where a group of people known as the hunters gets to go where they want and do what they please. The show aired from 2011 to 2014 based on Yoshihiro Togashi’s Hunter × Hunter manga. 

The story tells of a boy named Gon Freecss, who one day finds out that his father, whom he thought was dead, is apparently still alive and in good condition. He learns that his father, Ging, is a legendary “Hunter”, that is, someone who has proven himself to be the elite figure of mankind. Despite the fact that Ging left his son with his relatives to pursue his own dreams, Gon is determined to follow in his father’s footsteps by passing the rigorous “Hunter Exam”, and eventually finds his father after becoming a Hunter on his own. Along the way he meets Killua, Leorio, and Kurapika. 

Hunter x Hunter Season 7: Release Date

In the case of season 6 of Hunter x Hunter, it was released on July 8, 2014 and a total of 12 episodes were broadcast, ending on September 24, 2014. This season would be the adaptation of the arc of the thirteenth Hunter’s president edition of the original manga.

The Madhouse studio was the one that carried out the series with Hiroshi Koujina as director. In turn, Madhouse was commissioned to produce two films that keep the main characters: Hunter x Hunter Movie 1: Phantom Rouge (2013) and Hunter x Hunter Movie 2: The Last Mission (2013). 

But since 2014, there has been ZERO official word on a possible season 7.

Hunter x Hunter Season 7: A Come Back?

In February 2021, voice actors Megumi Han and Mariya Ise, who played Gon and Killua respectively, started teasing their upcoming Hunter x Hunter-related project.

Although this set off the alarms of all the fans who were waiting for a seventh season or a movie. Actually, it is very likely that this was for the escape room challenge titled “Escape From the Shape-Shifting Labyrinth”, in the web game series based on “Hunter x Hunter” that was developed by SCRAP and made available from March 25, 2021 to July 27 of that same year.

Hunter x Hunter Season 7 Plot

By the end of season 6, Gon manages to climb the World Tree where he finally ends up meeting his father. Evidently, the search for Gon was the main arc of the anime. As for the manga, other characters end up taking center stage. Therefore, the conclusion of the arc ” 13th election of the president of the hunters ” was ideal to end the anime.

Should there be more seasons of Hunter x Hunter, the writers will take a totally different path with other characters. Similarly, Hunter x Hunter is an anime known for taking relatively long breaks that last more than three years. Additionally, it is very likely that Togashi’s health problems will not allow him to work on the series.

The result of this is that the manga hasn’t progressed significantly since that arc either. If we take all this into account and keep hoping for a seventh season or even a new movie. 

It is very likely that if a new season of Hunter x Hunter comes out, it will adapt the “ Dark Continent Expedition ” arc where Isaac Netaro’s son will be in charge of organizing an expedition to the Dark Continent. This could come as a big surprise to the Zodiacs, who were unaware that Netaro had a child. On the other hand, Beyond is able to undertake his own expedition to the Dark Continent, against all the prohibitions implemented by the V5.

What is the Hunter × Hunter manga and anime story?

Hunter × Hunter contains a conflicting and disparate set of characters, each with its own characteristic and character, and this allowed the manga to take many sudden turns, listing the background of the character and its impact on the story in proportion to the fictional world in which it lives. In addition, cultural civilizations and morals in the characters, and their different levels, in addition to their volatile psychological states and the way they deal with difficulties, gave them real dimensions to some extent.

Like father, like son:

The story begins with Gon discovering that his father is still alive by a strange fisherman who came to his village.

The story is characterized by a unique plot (divided into several parts), and its reliance on some morals as its basis, such as courage and friendship. Likewise, the story is distinguished by its difference from the rest of the parts, for example, the first part of the series includes dealing with the events that take place with Gon as he seeks to obtain a hunting license in order to become a hunter like his father. Gon and the other examinees go through several strange and sometimes deadly exams, the purpose of which is to measure the different abilities of a hunter. During this segment, Gon meets and befriends three other examinees, Killua, Kurapika, and Leorio. This group also encounters a number of people, including the examinees and the examinee itself, who had an impact on their performance in the exam.

Leaving Zoldyck’s clutches:

After Killua is taken out of the Hunter Exam, Gon, Kurapika, and Yurio search for him with the aim of saving him from his family, and getting him out of the Zoldyck family’s mansion. After going through several obstacles on the Zoldyck family’s estate, the three manage to reach Killua and get him out, with his father’s consent. Kurapika and Yorio set out on their own. Kurapika stated his intention to look for work until the auction, while Yorio wanted to continue his studies to become a doctor.

Ryodan vs Kurapika:

Gon and Killua reach a tower that is very tall, with 251 floors and is called the Power Tower. All inmates can fight around the clock for money. In this part, the two meet some of the characters from Part One during their hunting exam, including Hisoka. They also meet a karate person named Wing and his student Zoshi, who teaches them the Nen method.

In this segment, the four main characters meet again in Yorkshire, where a huge public auction is held between notables and the wealthy of society. The story mainly revolves around Kurapika and his desire to take revenge on the spider group (Ryodan group), which consists of a group of thieves, as punishment for killing members of his tribe. Meanwhile, the three remaining characters search for Gon’s father, finding a clue that might lead them to him. Kurapika develops some strange mental states, and tries to balance his new job as a bodyguard with his goal of eliminating the Ryodan group. At the end of this part, Kurapika is able to achieve his goal with the help of his friends.

The video game experience:

Kurapika and Leorio leave again in this part, and Gon continues to search for his father with Killua’s help. The two enter a video game, which is only a crossing to go to the island of greed. The developers of this program are a group of people with advanced Nen abilities, and their leader is believed to be Ho Jin, Gon’s father. The purpose of the game is to get as many cards as possible, which have different abilities. During this journey, Gon and Killua meet B Kruger, who appears to be a young girl about their age, when in fact a woman of great strength, far superior to their age. Besides, Kuroro, the leader of the Ryodan gang, travels to this island, to extract the dagger that Kurapika has stuck in his heart to restrict his use of his nen ability. His argument was to restore Kilauea.

The Ant story:

The story in the next part revolves around a strange ANT insect, which feeds on other animals and insects and gives birth to ants with the characteristics and characteristics of the animals that fed on them. Gon, Killua, and Kaito (the strange hunter who told Gon about his father in the first part) are assigned to investigate this matter, especially after finding the insect man on the shore of the island inhabited by it, where it begins to eliminate the human settlers of the island, and during the fight against Gon and Killua and Kaito for the ants, they meet a strong ant named Beto, and Gon and Killua flee and leave Kaito to fight her, and Kaito is defeated in front of her, and then they meet again with B Kruger and train with her help to go to save Kaito, while Netero, the head of the hunters committee, goes to kill the ant king, and in the ant king’s palace, a battle takes place between Nitro and the King, between Gon and Beto, and the King defeats Nitro, and Gon defeats Beto.

Gon finally meets his dad:

The members of the Junishion, the Hunters who Netero trusts, the chairman of the committee, including Jin, Gon’s father, gather to decide who will head the Hunters Committee after Netero’s death and decide, based on Jin’s opinion, that every Hunter in the world can nominate himself for the position of chief and can simultaneously vote, while on the other side goes Killua. To his house to bring his sister Aluka, who has the ability to grant wishes in exchange for fulfilling three requests, in order to save the life of Gon, who was not able to treat even the most skilled doctors. Killua interrupts his brother Illumi, who wants to kill Iloka because he sees her as a danger to the life of the Zoldyck family, and he cooperates with Hisoka to accomplish this, but in the end Gon is saved and meets his father Jin.

The next chapter begins with the story of the appearance of the son of the former president Netero, who will lead a team of adventurers to go to the outside world with Jin, Gon’s father.

What is the difference between Hunter × Hunter 1999 and 2011?

In total, there are two different anime adaptations based on Togashi’s original manga. The first adaptation was released in October 1999 and aired until March 2001. The second premiered on October 2, 2011 and is divided into six seasons, each corresponding to a different arc of the manga.

The anime is an adaptation of the first seventeen volumes of the manga and about half of the eighteenth. The series was produced by Nippon Animation and aired in Japan on Fuji TV from October 16, 1999 to March 31, 2001. Three sequel OVAs followed. In fact, the OVA and the series can be combined into one anime of 92 episodes. The second season is a repeat of the first until episode 76.

In 2011, Madhouse announced that they were producing a remake of the main series. It is directed by Hiroshi Kojina. The broadcast began on October 2, 2011. The 3 OVA ending of the original series (Greed Island) corresponds to episode 75 of the remake.

The 1999 version:

1999’s first manga turned into an anime consisting of 62 episodes, with each episode lasting for 23 minutes. It was shown in Japan in 1998, and it lasted for nearly three years. The series presented a summary of the manga, and added some new information to it, as it found many characters and some parts that were not mentioned in the manga itself. The anime ended near the end of the fourth part related to the Ryodan gang, while the story was completed in three parts of the OVA, including the final episodes of the fourth part.

The anime was shown in different parts of the world in 2003. In 2006, the Hunter anime entered the list of the top 100 anime in Japan prepared by “TV Asahi”, where it ranked twenty-eighth, based on the vote of anime followers

The 2011 version:

The next Hunter × Hunter was launched on October 2, 2011 on Nippon TV channel and instead of continuing the story from the end of the OVA, the anime was reproduced from the beginning of the manga in an attempt to correct the errors of the previous version that deviated from the manga content a lot, as the 1999 anime version did not show the entire battle of Kasto and Hisoka, and was reduced to showing the story of the Spiders and the Island of Greed. 

The quality of the animation deteriorated with the series of episodes from the end of the story of Greed Island, and it also added some extra episodes from the manga during the exam period. 

The new anime is directed by Hiroshi Kugina and written by Jun Maekawa, and Takahiro Yoshimatsu has designed the characters for the 2011 version.

This 2011 version included the events of the manga up to chapter 339, and it covered the following topics from the story: The Hunter Exam, The Killua Family, The Heavens Tower, York Shane and the Spider Gang, The Island of Greed, and from episode 76 to episode 148 and the last one, the Chimera Ants story, and the Hunters’ elections along with the conclusion of Gon and Killua’s journey. 

Most importantly, the 2011 anime avoided the events of the current axis of the manga, which revolves around the journey towards the dark continent, because the story is not over yet in the manga.

Who sang the Hunter × Hunter theme song?

The opening theme song of the anime series is used interchangeably between the songs “Departure!” and an alternative version entitled “Departure! -Second Version-“.

Both songs are sung by Masatoshi Ono, vocalist of Galneryus. Five songs were used as the ending theme song; “Just Awake” by Japanese band Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas from episodes 1 to 26, “Hunting for Your Dream” by Galneryus from episodes 27 to 58, “Reason” by the Japanese singing duo Yuzu from episodes 59 to 75, “Nagareboshi Kirari” also performed by Yuzu from episodes 76 to 98—originally from the feature film adaptation of the anime film, Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge, and “Hyōri Ittai” which Yuzu and Hyadain performed from episodes 99 to 146, which was also used in the film Hunter × Hunter: The Last Mission. 

The background music and soundtrack for the series were created by Yoshihisa Hirano.
