Tubi TV Adds the English Dub of the Hunter x Hunter Anime to Its Service

The Fandom Post is reporting that Tubi TV has added the English dub for the 148 episodes of the Hunter x Hunter anime to its service.

Hunter x Hunter is described as:

A Hunter is one who travels the world doing all sorts of dangerous tasks. From capturing criminals to searching deep within uncharted lands for any lost treasures. Gon is a young boy whose father disappeared long ago, being a Hunter. He believes if he could also follow his father’s path, he could one day reunite with him.

After turning 12, Gon leaves his home and takes on the task of entering the Hunter exam, notorious for its low success rate and high probability of death to become an official Hunter. He befriends the revenge-driven Kurapika, the doctor-to-be Leorio and the rebellious ex-assassin Killua in the exam, with their friendship prevailing throughout the many trials and threats they come upon taking on the dangerous career of a Hunter.

VIZ Media Delivers the Home Media Release of Hunter x Hunter: The Last Mission

VIZ Media announces the home media release of Hunter x Hunter: The Last Mission on March 12, 2019.

Hunter x Hunter: The Last Mission was produced by the MADHOUSE animation studio and was directed by Keiichiro Kawaguchi. The feature film will be available as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack (MSRP: $29.98 U.S. / $34.99 CAN) and as a Standard Edition DVD (MSRP: $19.98 U.S. / $24.99 CAN).

In Hunter x Hunter: The Last Mission, the Battle Olympia tournament at Heaven’s Arena is about to begin. Gon, Killua, Kurapika and Leorio plan on watching the matches along with the other Hunters and VIPs in attendance. As they wait, a raid by The Shadow ends the festivities. Skilled fighters fall one by one to their terrifying ability called On, a dark power derived from malice. When their leader Jed captures Netero and declares death to all Hunters in the name of vengeance, Gon and Killua rush to defeat him.

Hunter x Hunter: The Last Mission thrilled audiences earlier this year during its limited U.S. theatrical release,” says Brian Ige, Vice President, Animation. “We’re excited to offer the home media release to Hunter x Hunter fans and those who missed out on its run in theaters.”

Exclusive bonus features for the Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack include interviews with English voice cast members Erica Mendez (as Gon), Cristina Vee (as Killua), Matt Mercer (as Leorio), Keith Silverman (as Hisoka), and Kira Buckland (as Zushi).

The anime adventure was produced by the animation studio, MADHOUSE, and has been seen widely in North America on Adult Swim’s Toonami. VIZ Media is the official North American distributor of the Hunter x Hunter anime series and holds the broadcast rights, digital streaming rights, home video rights and merchandising rights to the series.
