Can you believe it? Hunter X Hunter has been tearing up the ratings each Saturday night on Toonami and in just a couple of weeks, the first set will be out on Blu-ray and DVD! As you can probably guess, the whole team at VIZ is as excited as Gon was to get started on his journey.
Because this series is such a fan-favorite, we have not one, not two, but three versions for you to choose from. Let me take you on a tour of Hunter X Hunter delights.
First up, we have the standard Blu-ray version. It has episodes 1-13 on two discs plus special features including an interview with the voice of Gon herself, Erica Mendez ( @tsunderica on Twitter). Inside, you'll also get three art cards featuring some of the locations Gon and the gang see as they start their journey to become great Hunters.
If you preorder from our friends at Right Stuf, you'll also get a special gift with purchase while supplies last; a real Hunter License replica! Not only is it the easiest way to get your Hunter License, when you aren't showing it off or using it as the ideal cosplay prop, it will fit right in your Blu-ray case! Check this out:
Special note – not a license to kill. We're gentle hunters here at VIZ! We recommend you use your Hunter powers for love.
Next up, we have something truly unique, a very special Steelbook edition, only available at Best Buy ! This comes with episodes 1-13, the art cards, all the on-disc extras and it comes in a sturdy Steelbook case with variant art! What's super special about this is it ALSO includes a digital download code for the first volume of the original Hunter X Hunter manga. Look at this glorious specimen!
Finally, we have the DVD version. This comes with a beautiful slip cover (O-Card) and includes episodes 1-13 on two DVDs. This will be available at all your favorite anime disc retailers as well as select Wal-Mart stores! So, if you love supporting anime at Wal-Mart, and we know a lot of fans do, head on down to your local store and grab your copy. Eggs, Milk, cereal, a fishing pole, new socks, last minute cosplay supplies, Hunter X Hunter on DVD… you can get them all at your friendly neighborhood Wal-mart!
But wait, there's more! We have a truly fantastic final specimen to show you on this journey; the Hunter X Hunter set 1 trailer!
Doesn't that get you hyped up to become a Hunter? If not, your buddy Char is gonna have to come over there and hunt… for your heart.
We hope you are looking forward to Hunter X Hunter coming out in a couple weeks as much as we are. If you're in the Los Angeles area, we'll be hosting a special Hunter X Hunter event at AkibaFest in Little Tokyo Sunday, 10/16. Check the AkibaFest site for tickets and times.
