A manga created by Yoshihiro Togashi after he finished Yu Yu Hakusho. On first inspection, it seems to be your standard shounen fare, however, what distinguishes it is its incredibly complex battle system, the use of Nen. This also leads to a "copout" argument - the "Nen Hax", where, based on some dialogue early in the series, a Nen user can apparently kill a non - Nen user via "Nen Baptism" which can be done with a simple touch. This usually isn't accepted in the battles, much like lawl genjutsu and lol reiatsu crush. Fans often complain that Togashi's art in many chapters is horrible and he takes long breaks before resuming the series.
Hunter x Hunter is the story about a child named Gon Freecss who sets out to become a hunter in order to find his father who left him with his aunt when he was a child. He must enter the hunter exam in order to officialy become a hunter and whilst he takes this exam he meets new people and befriends them. After completing the hunter exam he's awarded a hunter license and begins the search for his father meeting new people and battling dangerous monsters and criminals.
Power of the verse
Meruem, the top tier character of the verse, has at least town level destructive capacity and durability and although there are a decent number of characters that have the potential to be high tier or greater, they need feats first. However, after years of Hiatus, the HxH verse gets a new arc: The Dark Continent Arc.
The verse however, is not lacking in the speeds department. Almost all characters are Hypersonic+ with reactions and reflexes. They also have an advanced and quite frankly, awesome battle system.
