About a few days ago it was revealed that there would be something special to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the anime of Hunter x hunter. Well, the second one, which started airing in Japan on October 2, 2011 and was produced by Madhouse.
The series was very well received in its time and some thought that something big was coming. But with the publication of the magazine Weekly Shonen Jump from Shueisha disappointment also came.
Hunter x Hunter from Madhouse and his 10 years
What actually appeared posted was a tribute from the people who participated in the anime and nothing else. This is an illustration where they appear Gon, Killua, Hisoka, Leorio and Kurapika.
The design came from Takahiro yoshimatsu, character designer of the animated adaptation. So that Yoshihiro Togashi, the creator of the manga, couldn’t even contribute a simple tribute. His creative block still remains.

In addition to the design of the characters of Hunter x hunter there were quite a few comments from the voice actresses who participated in the series. Are from Megumi han and Mariya Ise, who lent their voice to Gon and Killua, respectively.
Han commented, apparently excited: ‘was my beginning and will always be my starting point. It has been ten years since I was allowed to start. [Hunter x Hunter] It has given me many encounters and invaluable things in life ‘.
Comments from the actresses of Gon and Killua
To the above, he added ‘It is thanks to all of you that this series continues to develop in this way. I would like to thank and congratulate for everything that has happened so far ‘.
Ise, for his part, he declared ‘I have been able to live as a dubbing actress thanks to my meeting with [Hunter x Hunter] when I was 14 years old’.
He continued with ‘To think that a girl who was only a fan of Killua would end up acting her role ten years later, at the age of 24 … what a dream story (laughs)’.
Mariya Ise ended up saying ‘Another ten years from then…! I hope this series will be loved for many years and congratulations on its 10th anniversary. ‘.
What is a real shame is that the anime is completely stagnant. All because the creator of the manga has not advanced anything with the story. Togashi once commented that he wanted to finish the series, but cannot decide to go back to his job.
