Kurapika continues to pursue the Phantom Troupe but an unknown party has stolen his "scarlet eyes". With the help of Gon, Killua and Leorio, Kurapika' s life was saved. However, the Phantom Troupe shows up before them and blocks their way. The true identity of the one with the No.4 spider tattoo is about to be unveiled. [Source: Cathay Cineplexes]
This can be considered a side episode from the main storyline, focusing on the phantom spider No 4 that Hisoka replaces. It is quite refreshing to watch all the characters again, battling enemies with their special moves. One advice, if you have not watched the anime before or know about its storyline, please stay away from this movie. If you have completed the anime until the point it ended, please enjoy the show!
