Hunter × Hunter is an anime television series that aired from 2011 to 2014 based on Yoshihiro Togashi's Hunter × Hunter manga. The story begins with a young boy named Gon Freecss, who one day discovers that the father who he thought was dead, is in fact alive and well. He learns that his father, Ging, is a legendary "Hunter", an individual who has proven themselves an elite member of humanity. Despite the fact that Ging left his son with his relatives in order to pursue his own dreams, Gon becomes determined to follow in his father's footsteps, pass the rigorous "Hunter Examination", and eventually find his father to become a Hunter in his own right.
This new Hunter × Hunter anime was announced on July 24, 2011. It is a complete reboot of the series starting from the beginning of the manga, with no connections to the first anime from 1999. It is directed by Hiroshi Kōjina, produced by Madhouse, and features scripts by Jun Maekawa and character designs by Takahiro Yoshimatsu. Instead of having the old cast reprise their roles for the new adaptation, the series features an entirely new cast to voice the characters. The new series premiered airing weekly on Nippon Television and the nationwide Nippon News Network from October 2, 2011. An hour after each episode is aired in Japan, American website Crunchyroll provided English subtitled simulcasts in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. The series started to be collected in both DVD and Blu-ray format on January 25, 2012. Viz Media has licensed the anime for a DVD/Blu-ray release in North America with an English dub. On television, the series began airing on Adult Swim's Toonami block on April 16, 2016.
The anime series' opening theme is alternated between the song "Departure!" and an alternate version titled "Departure! -Second Version-" both sung by Galneryus' vocalist Masatoshi Ono. Five pieces of music were used as the ending theme; "Just Awake" by the Japanese band Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas in episodes 1 to 26, "Hunting for Your Dream" by Galneryus in episodes 27 to 58, "Reason" sung by Japanese duo Yuzu in episodes 59 to 75, "Nagareboshi Kirari" also sung by Yuzu from episode 76 to 98, which was originally from the anime film adaptation, Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge, and "Hyōri Ittai" by Yuzu featuring Hyadain from episode 99 to 146, which was also used in the film Hunter × Hunter: The Last Mission. The background music and soundtrack for the series was composed by Yoshihisa Hirano.

|October 2, 2011||April 16, 2016|
|The story begins with a young boy named Gon who aspires to be just like his father Ging. Ging had left his son in the care of Mito, Gon's aunt, and has not been back since. In order to prove his ability to take the exam, Gon catches the local monster fish, "Lord of the Lake". Although Mito is reluctant to let Gon leave his home, she relents after seeing his determination to understand why his father left and what his interest of becoming a Hunter was. After saying goodbye to Mito and the townspeople, Gon boards a ship with participants from other lands and sets sail for the exam venue. After Gon predicts a violent storm approaching, the captain manages to steer the ship through the storm. He is later revealed to be one of the Hunter examiners, and he singles out Gon, Kurapika (who wishes to become a Hunter in order to hunt down the Phantom Troupe, a band of criminals who massacred his clan), and Leorio (who claims to want to be a Hunter just for the money). Kurapika and Leorio have an argument, stepping out onto the deck to fight during the storm, but are interrupted when Gon goes to save a crew member who fell out of the ship. Gon, Kurapika and Leorio help save the crew member, earning the captain's approval, so he sends the three to the port closest to the exam site.|

"Shiken no Shiken" (シケン×ノ×シケン)
|October 9, 2011||April 23, 2016|
|Gon, Kurapika and Leorio arrive at Dolle Harbor and are given instructions by the captain to head for the cedar tree on the hilltop behind the city. Moving through a small town, their path is blocked by a group of people, where an old woman won't let them pass until they have answered a quiz question. Incorrect answers, refusal to answer, or attempts to head back will result in failure of the exam. A scheming participant who followed the trio from the harbor answers a question and is allowed to pass. The old woman then poses the question to the three, asking which of their loved ones they would rescue first: son or daughter. When Leorio complains that there's no right answer, Kurapika understands that it's a trick question and manages to stop Leorio from attacking the old woman. When the time is up and no answer is given, they pass, as the right answer was silence. The old woman shows Gon and the others to the correct path to the cedar tree. Upon reaching the tree, they find that the Navigators who live there are under attack by a shapeshifting creature, called a Kiriko. While Leorio tends to the wounded man, Gon and Kurapika go after the creature, only to discover that there are more than one of them. Impressed they were able to figure it out, the creatures revealed themselves to be the Navigators and fly them to the exam venue.|

|With the navigators' help, Gon, Kurapika and Leorio arrive at Zaban City, the venue of the exam. The Navigator leads them to a small restaurant, which is actually a front for the Hunter exam venue. Gon's group is led to a back room, where an elevator takes them one hundred floors underground. Below, they meet the rest of the Hunter exam participants and are given their numbers. Tonpa, a regular participant who claims to have tried and failed 35 times in the exam, secretly goes about trying to fail all the rookie examinees by giving them drinks mixed with laxatives. However, he fails to convince any of them to take the drinks, including Gon's group. Hisoka, a magician who attempted to kill an examiner in his previous attempt at the exam, is introduced. After accounting for the number of participants, an examiner by the name of Satotz tells the participants to follow him in the first phase of the exam, without telling them their destination or how far they are going to travel.|

"Kibō to Yabō" (キボウ×ト×ヤボウ)
|October 23, 2011||May 7, 2016|
|During the first phase, a number of participants drop out from fatigue after running for at least forty kilometers. Leorio almost gives up until he is encouraged by Gon, who waited for him. Killua, another rookie examinee, is introduced and he is curious about Gon when he discovers that they are the same age. Kurapika and Leorio run together and talk about their reasons for becoming Hunters. Kurapika wants to kill the Phantom Troupe, the group who massacred his clan for their precious scarlet eyes, which manifest when the Kurta experience intense emotion. Leorio aims to be a Hunter for money, but it is for altruistic reasons, as his childhood friend died of an illness because they didn't have the funds to save him. Leorio wishes to be a doctor so he can give his patients free treatment. Finally, the participants reach the end of the tunnel they were running in and surface in the Numere Wetlands, also known as Swindlers' Swamp. Satotz warns them that the creatures often use devious tactics to lure and eat their prey in the wetlands, and that falling for their tricks equals death. Suddenly, a wounded man appears, claiming to be their original examiner and convincing everyone that Satotz was a man-faced ape masquerading as their examiner to fool them. Hisoka simultaneously throws his deadly playing cards at both the man and Satotz. The cards kill the man while Satotz catches the cards, proving that Satotz was the real examiner because examiners were supposed to be well-trained Hunters who are able to avoid such simple attacks. Hisoka is warned not to attack Satotz again, otherwise he will be disqualified. Satotz tells the participants to follow him into the swamp, and if any of them loses sight of him, they will never reach the second venue.|

Gon and Killua are separated from Leorio and Kurapika, and both parties are attacked by monsters. Leorio and Kurapika encounter Hisoka, who is surrounded by a group of candidates who feel that he's a threat they need to kill. Leorio and Kurapika are shocked to watch the magician easily take the group down. Hisoka then turns to Leorio and Kurapika next, but upon realizing that they are no match for him, Leorio and Kurapika run off in different directions to stop Hisoka from following. Leorio, however, returns, unable to run away from a fight. As expected, Leorio is beaten badly and knocked out by Hisoka. Gon, who got separated from Killua, arrives and hits Hisoka in the face with his fishing rod before he could kill Leorio. After the initial hit, Gon nearly gets strangled by Hisoka, but, after concluding that they have passed his "test" where he roleplayed as an examiner, Hisoka lets them go. He carries an unconscious Leorio off to the second venue, and it is shown that Hisoka is collaborating with an unknown candidate. Gon leaves by himself and finds Kurapika, who had returned and witnessed the entire scene, and they both head for the site of Phase Two of the exam. Kurapika analyzes Hisoka's behavior, believing that the magician has his own standards of judging whether the person he meets is worthy of fighting against or killing. Gon confesses to Kurapika that he actually feels afraid of his encounter with Hisoka.|

|Gon and Kurapika reunite with Leorio and Killua at the Phase Two site. Satotz leads what remains of the candidates to meet the second phase examiners, Menchi and Buhara. The examiners declare the next phase is to test their cooking skills, much to the candidates' disbelief. The test requires pork, so the candidates are sent to find pigs in the forest. However, the pigs living inside the forest are carnivorous and tear through the candidates. Thanks to Gon, they discover the pigs' weakness and manage to each get one for their cooking. Upon tasting the candidates' food (wherein majority of the examinees simply roasted their pigs over a spit), Buhara gives a pass but Menchi fails all of them. Knowing the candidates will riot, Satotz informs Chairman Netero of the Hunter Selection Committee to make an appearance. Netero arrives to correct Menchi's habit of getting biased whenever it's related to cooking. Netero then allows Menchi to stay on as examiner, only if she participates in the event as well. Menchi gives the candidates a retest: boil eggs laid by spider eagles on Mt. Split-in-Half. The candidates ride on Netero's airship to the mountain, where they have to jump down into a potentially fatal ravine to get the eggs. Having seen and learned how Menchi gets her egg, Gon leads some of the other candidates into successfully getting their own. Some candidates are killed while rashly trying to get their eggs, while others refuse to take the leap. Out of the 50 candidates who survive to reach Phase Two, 42 candidates now remain.|

All the candidates are told by Beans, Netero's secretary, to get some food and rest to prepare for the Third Phase the next morning. Tonpa tries to sabotage the rookies again by trying to keep Kurapika and Leorio awake for the whole night, but is exasperated to find that neither of them fall for his tricks. Gon and Killua explore the airship, and Killua tells Gon that he is actually from a family of assassins. He wished to go out on his own, not wanting his whole life planned out for him, which his family did not take lightly. Netero then arrives and tests both boys' instincts and asks how they felt about the difficulty of the exam. Netero invites both of them to participate in a game, which is simply taking a basketball from his hand. Gon and Killua find it too hard to pass up, but discovers that with Netero's skills, they are unable to grab the ball. hours pass, and eventually Killua gives up, realizing that they will never be able to take the ball from Netero because Netero hasn't been employing any strength or energy from his right hand or left leg. Killua retires, but then takes his frustration out on two candidates who harass him by killing them. Gon continues the game until the wee hours of the morning, trying to grab the ball, and then headbutts Netero. The old man realizes that Gon will crack his skull if he continues with his headbutt, so he uses his right hand to push Gon away from him. Gon then tells Neteros then he has finally managed to get him to use his right hand once, which Gon counts as a great achievement. Gon passes out happily from exhaustion, and Netero calls the pilot of the airship to fly the ship a little slower so Gon could get more rest.|

|The airship reaches the Phase Three site, which is a tall featureless pillar built on an equally high platform. It's called the Trick Tower. The candidates are told that to pass Phase 3, they have to climb down from the top to the base of the tower within 72 hours. An experienced rock climber candidate tries to climb down the side but is eaten by some flying monsters. Later, Kurapika finds that more than half of the candidates have gone missing from the top platform. Gon and Killua then tell Kurapika and Leorio that they have discovered hidden trap doors that flip and go inside the tower. However, the catch is that there are many hidden doors and each one can be only used once by one person, which means they have to split up. Gon, Killua, Kurapika and Leorio try out different doors, saying goodbye, only to realize that they all end up in the same room. Gon's group is given special wristwatches, and Lippo, the Phase 3 examiner, explains that the wristwatches can be used to vote for which paths to take through the Tower. They will need to cooperate in order to pass this phase. However, there are 5 watches and they cannot proceed without a fifth member. Tonpa eventually falls through the trap door, joining in as the fifth member, and the exam proceeds. By following majority rule, the group eventually reaches an arena, where they have to face prisoners hired by Lippo to become combatants. Lippo explains that to pass, all they have to do is win three rounds. But the prisoners are given reduced sentences by one year for every hour they manage to keep the candidates here. Tonpa volunteers to go first, pitting himself against a combatant named Bendot in a death match. Tonpa immediately gives up, and Leorio accuses him of sabotaging candidates, which he admits to doing every year.
