An anime Blu-Ray box of the Hunter Exam Arc and the Zoldyck Family Arc of Hunter x Hunter 2011 will be available on March 22, 2023. These arcs are the first two in the series, and cover episodes 1 through 26. Other than the Blu-Ray discs, the box will come with extras like a radio CD. [Thanks, Dengeki Online!]
Technically speaking, there will only be 25 episodes in the Blu-Ray box. This is because episode 13 was a recap episode. For exclusive goodies with the Hunter x Hunter Blu-Ray box, there will be the “Han Megumi and Ise Mariya’s Hunter x Hunter Hunter Studio Returns” CD. This was the radio show that aired during the show’s original run. There will also be a 20-page booklet. Finally, everything will come in a box that has art from the character designer Takahiro Yoshimatsu.
Han and Ise, who voice Gon and Killua, respectively, also left comments about what they remember from the initial Hunter x Hunter anime voice-acting sessions. Both of them stated that they felt like it was a dream come true to voice for Hunter x Hunter, and that they did their best to stay grounded and focused in the studio. For Han in particular, as Gon was one of her very first television series roles, she said that she started her voice acting journey from an environment she is thankful of.
The Hunter x Hunter Hunter Exam Arc and Zoldyck Family Arc Blu-Ray box will be available on March 22, 2023. It will cost 33,000 JPY, or $249.30. The Hunter x Hunter manga briefly returned on October 2022 but it is on hiatus again.
