Hunter X Hunter is one of the most popular modern shonen anime series, but the current hit adaptation that debuted in 2011 wasn't the first take on the story. Before this iconic version of the series, Nippon Animation and director Kazuhiro Furuhasi adapted the original Yoshihiro Togashi manga from 1999 through 2001. The series got a total of 62 episodes, and Viz Media picked it up. Fans of this original take on the manga can now head over to Heritage Auctions to bid on a production cel and animation drawing from the series.
