The Sengi Guild[note 1] ((せん)()(かい)()()()()()()(), Senjikai—lit. "Thousand Ears Society/Association/Club") is an underground agency in a very poor-looking slum. It is very well hidden from the public and is occupied by an agent. This is where Kurapika[1] and eventually Melody[2] go to earn jobs from the Nostrade Family.[1]

Overview

The Sengi Guild is the lone location where a guild agent acts as a proxy to hire capable Nen users for shady underground work.[3]

Plot

Heavens Arena arc

Kurapika makes his way here in order to look for a job, only to be turned down by the agent stationed there. She tells Kurapika that the Hunter Exam isn't over yet and since he can't see what she's trying to show him, he is told to return when he can.[3]

Yorknew City arc

After learning Nen from fellow Hunter Izunavi, the agent congratulates Kurapika for passing and allows him to choose from three job offers. Kurapika chooses the one from a flesh collector.[1]

Trivia

  • A name for the agency, consistent with the original Japanese version, was omitted in the Viz translation of the manga as well as in the subtitles for both anime adaptations. Where the name of the place should be, the English translations are as follows:
    • The manga and the 1999 anime adaptation present it as "the Employment Agency".[1][4]
    • The 2011 anime adaptation refers to it simply as "the agency".[2]

Notes

  1. The English name for the location, Sengi Guild, is the one used in an early, unofficial fan translation since no official name was given in the manga.
