Plucky Gon’s quest to find his dad leads him into a whole world of crazy adventure.
Hunters are a special breed, dedicated to tracking down treasures, magical beasts, and even other people. But such pursuits require a license, and less than one in a hundred thousand can pass the grueling qualification exam. Those who do pass gain access to restricted areas, amazing stores of information, and the right to call themselves Hunters.
Gon and friends are settling into Greed Island and slowly beginning to understand the strange mechanics of this "video game" world. They gain enough clues from the NPC townspeople to finally get their quest: They must drive Razor and the 14 Devils out of town by beating them at sporting events. The first event--dodge ball! Except in this game if you don't dodge--you die!!
