    See below:
    Code:
    via Viz Media Facebook page (1/17/14)
    - "We were told another company got the license."
    
    via Viz Media Facebook page (5/17/13)
    - "This is the reboot right? We put in an offer for it, but we didn't get the deal. The Japanese licensor doesn't have to let the people who didn't get it a notice of who got it, so we'll just have to wait for the announcement. Either way, who ever has it paid a pretty pretty penny for it..."
    
    via Viz Media Twitter (9/23/11)
    - "with the new #HunterXHunter anime premiering in a week, any word of a simulcast?"
    - "ooo.. already? that doesn't look good for us. They would have told us Tweeps to blast it by now."
    
    via HxH Podcast Twitter (7/1/12)
    - "Talked to funi, they heard about the show but no plans for release."

Maybe the other entity retracted their offer or they weren't able to come to an agreement with the licensors. Either way, it's great news for the legion of fans who have been waiting for it. The show has a lot of high praise, but I'm reluctant to jump into any kind of long running shonen series.

    Actually, Bang Zoom may very well be where the franchise is headed. Justin Sevakis hinted a little while ago at working on a project for Viz that would be announced "soon," and he only deals with the shows Bang Zoom has done post production for (since Subatomic handles their Studiopolis and Ocean stuff). This could possibly be it.

    If we can get reprint of the original series and maybe any attempt on the OVAs sequels even if subbed only OVA that would be great. Hopefully this does well for them to also consider the movies.
