What is it?

The 2013 Japanese anime (animated) movie Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge.

What is it about?

This is how the IMDb describes this anime (animated) movie:

Kurapika became a Hunter to take vengeance on the Class-A crime group Phantom Troupe who massacred his clan for their unique eyes.

The eyes of the Kurta clan turn scarlet in times of anger or emotional agitation and are considered the most beautiful treasures in the world.

Kurapika continues to pursue the Phantom Troupe but an unknown party has stolen his “scarlet eyes”.

With the help of Gon, Killua and Leorio, Kurapika’ s life was saved.

However, the Phantom Troupe shows up before them and blocks their way.

The true identity of the one with the No.4 spider tattoo is about to be unveiled.


My Thoughts

This movie had a good start with better animation, a more serious start, et cetera but unfortunately it became what felt more like a longer average episode of Hunter x Hunter.

Hunter x Hunter deserves a better movie than this, it was not bad though, but it was just average and it did not cover or better explain things that I wanted to see covered and explained.

This movie had none of the great moments like in the show, and so some episodes were better than this movie.

The end,
