His adventure sees him leave his home, Whale Island, to pursue this endeavor. Along the way, he forges new friendships with a colorful cast of characters such as the ex-assassin Killua, and he gets up to all manner of intriguing distractions like practicing a strange magic known as Nen, beating a virtual reality game with real-life stakes, and battling giant man-eating ants. It’s a tale packed with variety and unpredictability that’ll keep you guessing right the end of its 140+ episodes.
