The English-dubbed Hunter x Hunter anime series ended its run on Adult Swim’s Toonami last Saturday night. And as expected, lots of fans took to Twitter to say goodbye to the show following its bittersweet finale.

In their tweets, fans expressed how much they would miss the show now that it’s done for good.  They also thanked Viz Media, Adult Swim, and Toonami for putting the Hunter x Hunter on the air.

Some fans also congratulated the whole team behind the series, giving the voice cast a special shout-out.

A few members of the show’s voice cast also tweeted their farewells to the beloved anime.  Erica Mendez wrote that she learned so much from lending her pipes to the show’s main character, Gon Freecss. Erika Harlacher, meanwhile, tweeted that she feels honored to play Kurapika on the show.

For those who are not familiar with the anime series, Hunter x Hunter follows the adventure of a young boy named Gon Freecss, who discovers that his father who he thought was dead, is in fact alive and well. After learning that his father, Ging, is a legendary Hunter, Gon becomes determined to follow in his father’s footsteps. Gon takes the Hunter Examination, and eventually embarks on a journey to find his father and become a Hunter in his own right.

In the finale, Gon climbs the top of the World Tree where he meets Ging for the first time. The father and son finally have a heart-to-heart conversation, in which Ging reveals his intentions to further explore the world, and Gon shares all of his adventures that led him to find his father.

This Hunter x Hunter anime series is the second anime adaptation of Yoshihiro Togashi’s Hunter x Hunter manga. It is a complete reboot with no connections to the first anime series released in 1999. The Hunter x Hunter anime series, which was broadcast as part of Adult Swim’s Toonami, launched in Japan on April 16th, 2016 and concluded its run on April 6th, 2019.
