Hunter × Hunter – Full Color — Official VIZ Translation (EN) [PZG] 《Manga》
Hunter × Hunter (pronounced “hunter hunter”) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi. It has been serialized in Shueisha‘s shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump since March 1998.
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.” Can Gon, a country boy, follow his father and join their ranks?
Gon might be a country boy, but he has high aspirations. Despite his Aunt Mito’s protests, Gon decides to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a legendary Hunter. The Hunter hopefuls begin their journey by storm-tossed ship, where Gon meets Leorio and Kurapika, the only other applicants who aren’t devastated by bouts of seasickness. Having survived the terrors of the high seas, Gon and his companions now have to prove their worth in a variety of tests in order to find the elusive Exam Hall. And once they get there, will they ever leave alive…?
“Secret treasure hoards, undiscovered wealth… mystical places, unexplored frontiers… ‘The mysterious unknown.’ There’s magic in such words for those captivated by its spell. They are called ‘Hunters’!”
Gon Freecss wants to become a Hunter so he can find his father, a man who abandoned him to pursue a life of adventure. But it’s not that simple: only one in one hundred thousand can pass the Hunter Exam, and that is just the first obstacle on his journey. During the Hunter Exam, Gon befriends many other potential Hunters, such as the mysterious Killua; the revenge-driven Kurapika; and Leorio, who aims to become a doctor. There’s a world of adventure and peril awaiting, and those who embrace it with open arms can become the greatest Hunters of them all!

Why there’s so many missing chapters in between? Am I missing something? If so I do apologize.
Redraws, especially SFX redraws can be quite hard to do. This is not released officially in English so we have to remove the Japanese text first.
Hey, thank you guys very much for all this amazing effort and dedication you’ve put toward this project.
This is a project that I would love to see fully completed for every single volumes, and i’m sure that the Hunter x Hunter community would as well.
Would it be possible to get in contact with you guys about possibly entering into a paid partnership (me paying you guys) together sometime in the near future?
