In the beginning, In a contest of power between the two most powerful warriors in the universe. Hisoka the man who cut through basically anything using his hands or legs and Itomi the man who wielded all the stones of destruction (strength, speed and psych stone).
After days of fighting in a desert Itomi let his emotions get the best of him and payed dearly for it. But just before Hisoka could reach for the stones, Itomi quickly performed a ritual that distributed the strength and speed stones to one who was worthy but before he could complete the ritual for the psych stone he was beheaded by Hisoka. Hisoka was so enraged for not getting all the stones but with the psych stone he swore to be in possession of all the stones for a reason unknown.
ITS BEEN TEN YEARS SINCE THAT INCIDENT IN MODERN JAPAN WITH THE STRENGTH STONE STILL UNABLE TO LOCATE THE ONE WORTHY OF ITS POWER.
A 10-year-old child named Itadori was living on the streets of Tokyo by himself. He frequently begs on the street throughout the day. Most times he goes days without having anything to eat. He would go begging from shop and get beaten up by the shop attendant saying ”We suffer the same way, so don think because you are young you will get what you want ”. The thought of stealing came to his mind, he would try and get beaten up.
On a rainy night Itadori was at the end of an alley. Suddenly he heard a sound in a nearby dumpster he got scared but having nothing to lose he went to go check it out he then saw a puppy the first thing that came to his mind was dinner without wasting time he quickly tied it using a rope he saw in the dumpster and grabbed a broken bottle about to stab the puppy but as he looked into the puppys eyes he just realized he couldn cause harm to it. He then untied it and laid on the ground crying due to unbearable hunger and slept off. When he woke up he realized the puppy didn leave but rather slept by his side and suddenly he got an idea. He went out of the alley with his newly achieved puppy the city was as busy as usual. He decided to try out his Idea as he instructed his puppy to try to steal a piece of bread. While the puppy was trying as a decoy Itadori quickly grabbed two pieces of bread and started running as soon as his puppy spotted him it followed suit with the shop attendant not knowing what had happened. Itadori returned back to the alley with his puppy and had what he could only call a feast. After he finished feasting he realized he didn name his puppy and decided to name it HERUPA meaning ”HELPER ” in Japanese. They kept on executing their plan using Herupa as decoy.
While at a corner the strength stone was watching.
