Hunter x Hunter gets a second film this winter


Because you can never have enough HxH

Hunter x Hunter is one of those manga series that I passed on for a long time due to its art style. At first glance, it appeared to be fairly typical shonen jump material, which meant I kept it in my backlog for years. 

One day, I finally decided to give it a shot. I haven't looked back since.

Much to my relief, Madhouse's ongoing anime adaptation of the series has been fantastic. It's nice to see HxH get some time in the spotlight.

With that said, it has recently come to light that Hunter x Hunter will be getting a second animated film this winter. Scheduled to open in Japanese theaters on December 27 of this year, the movie is called Hunter x Hunter: The Last Mission. The image with the announcement teases a story about the darkness hidden within the Hunter Association.
