Viz describes Togashi’s manga series as follows:

But such activities require a license, and less than one in a hundred thousand can pass the grueling qualifying exam. Those who succeed gain access to restricted areas, incredible stores of information, and the right to call themselves “Hunters.” Will Gon, a country boy, be able to follow his father and join their ranks?
