An Unexpected Task is chapter 10 of Hunter x Hunter.


Gon and Kurapika run to the Visca Forest Reserve. Gon uses his sensitive sense of smell to detect the smell of Leorio's aftershave so that they will not go astray. While running Gon says that he was both frightened and excited when facing Hisoka. They arrive just before Satotz announces that Phase One is over. Seeing them, Hisoka points them to a tree which Leorio is sitting against with a big swelling on his right cheek. They wake him up but he does not remember anything. At 12 p.m, the door of the large house at the site of Phase Two opens and two examiners, Buhara and Menchi, appear. They are Gourmet Hunters and tell the remaining 148 applicants that they will have to satisfy their tastes for food to pass.

The first test is administered by Buhara, who asks them to cook a whole roast pig for him. The only subspecies of pig that can be found in the reserve is the Great Stamp, the most dangerous wild pig in the world. However, they have a weak spot on their heads. And a number of applicants, including Gon, Hisoka, Killua, Kurapika and Leorio, are able to exploit their weakness to catch and submit them to Buhara.
