Every arc (besides Zoldyck arc) was just brilliant. Each arc introduced us to an incredible cast of characters each with their own niche. What I admire most about it was the animation... I mean, I started watching it nearing the end of the Fishman-Island Arc of one piece, and I somehow marathon-d the first 30 episodes in the first night. The Animation is incredible, the colors are vivid and inviting. They manage to encapsulate emotion/atmosphere in every scene. The way they depict these scenarios are phenomenal. After coming off one piece (I've still yet to finish the darn island because the animation is terrible/filler/etc) this show introduced me to what a quality anime is (Please for the love of god CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG), the main protagonists are likable, they each have their own personality that isn't cliche. Leoreo was someone I kept my eye on. The moment he revealed why he wanted to become a hunter, I knew that from that point onwards, each character would be developed.P.S Edit:I did mention Hunting for your dreams but I did forget to mention how good the ENTIRE OST as a whole is, it's so atmospheric,captivating and majestic at just the right times and places, definitely a contender for the top 10 best OST's of all time.The characters aren't forced on you, Gon's childish personality is conveyed brilliantly, He's not some annoying kid who wants to become a hero for the hell of it, he knows that the world will kick him while he's down. He acknowledges that this world is cruel, but still manages to find pure delight in it. Im not gonna write an entire review on it, but If anyone's willing to give the series A try, I'd recommend it. I honestly just wanted to convey my opinion on it, but this next part will have spoilers:*SPOILER WARNING**Honestly I don't understand the Hype with the Yorknew city Arc. The Arc cemented Kurapika as my favorite character (as im sure everyone else would agree) but the antagonists (for the mostpart) were 1-dimensional. The shadow troupe consists of murderers... And..? They only flush out 1/4 of the darn cast! The Samurai, The string Lady, the vacuum lady...? They kill people... But what else? The samurai got angry about the murder of his friend, but outside of that he's just a jerk. The leader of the darn troupe was just as 1 dimensional as the string lady, He can steal powers, and he kills people... Now tell me, besides wanting to develop a powerful main antagonist, why is it that wanting to steal a few priceless treasures(And I use the word priceless loosley) Require the murder of 5000 cops, 3000(innocent?) civilians, and the murder of the entire Mafia..? I mean they couldn't just have snuck in and out? Their plans are clichè, and for the most part they kill because they can.The Chimera Arc wasn't that fantanimus... The narration during episodes 100 -120, was just awful. If not for that, I would be writing this two weeks ago, but gosh why is it that every obvious attribute is conveyed? Do I need a narrator to tell me that I need to breath? no? then tell me why I must need one to convey the emotions of a character. By this i mean, The narrator's purpose was to spit on the beautiful nature of allowing the scene to convey itself. The narrator did nothing but reiterate the obvious, and he accomplished it poorly.Another thing that bothered me about the Chimera Ant Arc were the royal guards (except Pitou?). I'll leave her out of this because She seemed to have some of her character conveyed. But Pitou and Youpi were just cliche shoenen villians. Pouf's motivation didn't even make any sense. "I must not allow the king to develop character because... He's the king?" I mean what was that?! If anything, it only made the king's development more notable. Meruem was just a brillian character, He's what made the Arc. It was he who saw the comparison about humans and Ants, about how they're the same thing, just two species willing to utilize any means for their survival. It's a shame that this was only built upon nearing the end of the Arc, but it's what drew me back in.The Greed Island Arc was my favorite to be honest. The premise was: Go on an adventure and have fun, and It was done brilliantly! The final conflict between Gon and Gunthru was powerful, it encompassed Gon's perspective towards what it meant to be a hunter/getting stronger. He knew that his reluctance to follow the plan might engender his death, but That's what made the conflict as incredible as it was. So tell me, What are your thoughts? What's your favorite arc?
*When i see another hunterxhunter fan*
Look, I want to say this before I respond to this: I love you.There are so many things right with this..! Honestly the premise of a gay magic man is what enticed me..
I still haven't finished the anime. The Chimera ant arc bored me so i stopped watching the anime. I should watch it again
