Zushi fans looking to see how would've handled a fight with one of the antagonists got ripped off, I feel. At least have a scene where he rated him very low and seemed bored by him. Just keep in mind that it's not going to be as enthralling as something Togashi himself would write for the series proper and you'll have a far more enjoyable 90 minutes. Jed was likely too powerful for him though, so he left that to Netero. Inside Nen is the potential for limitless light and limitless darkness. The first trailer for the film was released over a week later. Jed, to me, is just like Chrollo.
He saw it as a means of growth for the main cast evidenced by helping Kurapica and Leorio reach their destinations. In order to rescue Netero, Gon must defeat Jed and his powerful On. Meanwhile, , who is also bound to meet them, is attacked and knocked out by the cloaked men. Meanwhile, Gon and Killua fight their way up the tower until Gaki appears to fight them, and , who was present at the tournament to escort his employer, Neon, confronts Shura. Like the first film, Hunter × Hunter: The Last Mission received its United States premiere at the Japan Film Festival of San Francisco on July 26, 2014. An earlier reviewer described it as fan fiction, which is a great description.
This movie stands alone from the show with an undeveloped sloppy story. A lot of emotional stuff that didn't need to be there. Hunter x Hunter Movie: The Last Mission — Nen: the hidden source of energy and potential that runs through everyone, and gives those that master it a source of great power. In August, the release date and basic plot outline were given in the year's 37 issue of. Also, the backstory in the first movie about the phantom troupe? Watched it and I don't know how I should feel about it. But time and again in the show and this movie , it always seems like Killua is the one treading the path of light, making him like Netero, and Gon like Jed. I loved Hunter X Hunter and I got really excited when I saw follow up movies were coming out.
Kurapika also defeats Shura with Leorio's help, but before dying, Shura infects Kurapika with Jed's blood, sealing his Nen and claiming that he will die unless he embraces On instead. They do this by attacking the Heaven's Arena during a tournament and taking Netero captive while demanding that the secrets behind their existence be revealed to the world. I think it was pretty meh. I rate Hunter X Hunter: The Last Mission a rent, at best. However, The Last Mission falls short of building excitement for its series in the same way that the latest Broly movie did for Dragon Ball. My Hero Academia is the series closest to the level of Hunter, though even that is miles behind it, and that movie specifically is far superior to The Last Mission. And you must also spoiler tag Major Spoilers i.
Was the businessman who died earlier the only guilty party in that regard? Also, there were a frustrating number of sequences where a battle is about to take place only to cut away to something else and then return when the fight is over. It's not a bad movie by any means, but it's a bit generic and full of missed opportunities. In the occasion, Gon is also infected by his blood and decides to embrace On to keep fighting him, while Killua convinces Rengoku to give up on her hatred and she dies, freeing Netero from her curse. Amidst the chaos, Leorio rises from the sewers inside the building and is helped by , who also was inside the building to reunite with Kurapika. Plus he was bored and just wanted something to watch. For Netero, this is the last mission: to protect the Association and the world from a threat driven by hatred and the thirst for revenge. Not canon, but lots of stuff that relates back to the series.
But I guess you can't keep up the awesome quality of the series with a movie in between. Jed declares death to all Hunters, as he captures Netero and seizes Heaves Arena with On, the dark power derived from malice. I just can't see Hisoka saying or caring if the guy was over powered or what. Jed is ultimately defeated when Gon purifies the On in his body with his own Nen and does the same to him, allowing him to finally die in peace. The Hunter Association has arisen to control access to it. I was surprised how the show let that slide, but I guess if enough time passes by you're free of any guilt. It sold 5,196 copies in four weeks before falling off the chart.
The story is very basic with little plot and no connection to to the overall story arch. However, most of the potential fights are cut aways and you come back and the action is already done. I love Hunter X Hunter, so obviously any movie featuring the characters would be of interest to me. The greatest and most powerful Hunter is Isaac Netero, chairman of the Hunter Association. I guess I had to many expectations of greatness going in. His goal is to avenge the murder of his clan, by the Hunter Association.
Once reunited with the others, Gon and Killua decide to confront Jed at the roof while Leorio stays behind to take care of Kurapika. The plot takes place after the Greed Island arc, but before the Chimera Ant stuff gets into full swing although it's mentioned that they've met Kite at this point , and it revolves around a group called the Shadow who were thought to be snuffed out by Netero long before the series start. The finale resolves itself in a predictable and generic matter as well. At the time of it's release in Japan, it would've foreshadowed a ton. Netero confronts Jed, but instead of attacking him, he decides to defend all his attacks until the hatred on him subsides. The Last Mission is missing all of these key components. Many fan favorite characters are all there, such as Hisoka, Biscuit, Zushi, and Wing, but they are poorly utilized and do little to contribute to resolving the crisis save for Hisoka, whose role is fairly passive in this film.
