One of the biggest news stories of that year in the anime world was the comeback of Hunter x Hunter, and with good reason.

Yoshihiro Togashi has been unable to publish new chapters on a weekly basis because of health concerns, but the shonen franchise keeps coming up with inventive ways to convey its story. The new stage play that reunites Gon and his companions is now available to Western fans. Japan frequently gives anime fans events and performances that don’t travel to North America.

Numerous stage productions have been produced in Japan based on some of the most popular anime franchises, including but not limited to Naruto, My Hero Academia, Beastars, Spirited Way, and more. It’s hardly surprising that Gon and his fellow hunters would get their own stage show given the popularity of Hunter x Hunter and the fact that Togashi is now the most popular manga artist on social media.

Videos from the dress rehearsal of the play, which brings some of Togashi’s vibrant cartoon characters to life, have been posted by a number of Japanese media sources. The Hunter’s Exam, which originally brought Gon and his buddies together in their pursuit of the elusive status of a hunter’s license, will be the central theme of the stage play.

Hunter x Hunter volume 37 will be delivered on October 4, 2023.
