A few days back I decided I will finally start this and took the advice of many and started the more recent adaptation. Now 22 episodes in and I already have a rather glaring issue.
Just how old was Gon’s dad when Gon was born?
In the anime, it is clearly stated that his father, Ging Freecss, abandoned Gon so that he could become a hunter. Okay, no problem just yet other than a really shitty dad. Then it is also stated that Gon is the same age as his father when he had left to become a Hunter.
Gon is 12 years old.
Do you see my dilemma? There is no clear cut answer right away. So I am left to speculate. So was Ging 12 which would be really young for that kind of thing and considering the type of show I find that hard to believe. Which leads me to another theory.
Ging became a hunter and later had Gon. Whether this was before or after returning to Whale Island I am not sure. To which he abandoned Gon to continue being a Hunter. He really is not winning any dad of the year awards.
Now I wonder why Gon is being raised by Mitty, which was recently made clear is his aunt. So where is his mother? Who is his mother?
I am faced with so many questions and I want to know the answers to and I am hoping that my curiosity will be satisfied. Plus I am discovering as the series goes on I am getting more questions so I only hope that each one is answered.
