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.
Welcome to the country of NGL (Neo-Green Life), a unique place led by an eco-group that's totally against any kind of technology! No metal, synthetic material or modern tools are allowed, and death is considered "nature's will." But a secret and powerful drug cartel operates within the country, and when the queen of a colony of huge insects eats the cartel thugs, her offspring begin to exhibit unnatural signs of aggression! When Gon and friends arrive on the scene, will they too end up in the belly of the insect queen?
