Gon might be a country boy, but he has high aspirations. Despite his Aunt Mito's protests, Gon decides to follow in his father's footsteps and become a legendary Hunter. The Hunter hopefuls begin their journey by storm-tossed ship, where Gon meets Leorio and Kurapika, the only other applicants who aren't devastated by bouts of seasickness.

Having survived the terrors of the high seas, Gon and his companions now have to prove their worth in a variety of tests in order to find the elusive Exam Hall. And once they get there, will they ever leave alive...?

Information on Stock Availability


We order books based on previous backorders [which is now indefinitely closed] and Notify Me requests. Adding a book to your wishlist does not guarantee it will be restocked, but we also take note of it as a factor. Requesting on the Notify Me section on sold out books lets us know the amount of people actually interested in purchasing it should we have a copy.

Filling out the Notify Me requests holds no promise that we'll get it and it won't give you false hope or require immediate payment.

Once stocks arrive and there are on-hand extras, those who filled out the notify me form will be immediately emailed that it's available. Those who wishlisted it and subscribed for email marketing will also receive an email albeit slower.

However, not all Notify Me requests will be accommodated as some could have no stocks for months and it is indeterminable when there would be new reprints. Our stocks rely solely on the availability from our supplier.

Notify Me emails are system generated and only emails you when 1 (ONE) available stock is input on the product you signed up for. Stocks can be depleted quick so it's best to act fast once you receive an email!
