Why the fuck people worship CA arc is still a mystery to me. Maybe the shonenkids who never saw anything but shonenshit were mindblown by it or something, it's kinda embarrassing but then again this is anime, even philosophy 101 is mindblowing.

It gets good when you get to the chimera ant arc, which is unfortunately like 100 episodes in. Every other part is literally just garbage and that arc alone has made HxH legendary, it could be a standalone anime.

Serious question: I'm not willing to watch an anime for 40+ episodes while waiting for it to get good. Can I just skip to the Chimera Ant part and be okay? Or do I HAVE to watch the proceeding episodes?

Or don't be a faggot and read the entire thing

The only bad arcs are the Zoldyck Family arc and the Chairman Election arc and those are the shortest ones by far.

James Robinson
James Robinson

Chairman Election isn't really bad.
I'd say Zoldyck + Arena is the weakest part of the series.

Samuel Scott
Samuel Scott

I think the worst part is that some people unironically think he is a good villain. He had no personality, appeared far too late into the arc to have any kind of credibility, and then the audience is supposed to feel emotionally moved by his death despite him wantonly committing murder on innocent people.

What a shit villain.

Elijah Gutierrez

and read the entire thing

I forgot it was adapted from a mango. That sounds much easier. I will do that instead.

Christian Reyes

forced romance
Romance was barely implied, that's the opposite of forced romance you stupid faggot.
momentum-killing training arcs
The only training part happened after the climax of NGL and the vast majority of it was skipped. It also was very short, wasn't the focus and there were other things going on. It didn't kill any momentum.
character designs from the mind of a 6-year-old child
I didn't like them much either except for the RG and the other hunters introduced.
geriatric pacing
Absolutely nothing wrong with the pacing if you're reading the manga, Kite dies 15 chapters in and Meruem vs Netero was over 20 chapters after the start of the invasion.
ham-handed attempts at philosophizing
Elaborate.

Colton Miller

The Chimera Ant Arc is truly the pinnacle saga that all anime, not just shonen arcs strive to be. Not only is the story telling prodigious, the pacing and character development is top notch. The level of depth that Togashi created is on another level. The exquisite and subtle use of narration at only times of importance delivers an amazing story telling experience.Of the various themes present in this work, his theme of ethics and value theory incorporated with various interactions between the characters appeal to logos, ethos and pathos, and this amalgamation of techniques once again prove his acuity and status as the smartest and wisest writer ever. His profound messages regarding anthropology and the juxtaposition of insects and animals with introspection as a species delivers an amazing tale of tragedy and loss. The fact that he delves into the more psychological aspects of human nature,morality, structuralism, existentialism, meta cognition and phenomenology show that he is the Shakespeare of writing and that he truly understands philosophy, proving that this epic is the most intelligent tale ever crafted. Togashi demonstrates his ken of the human race as a hole through the Chimera Ant Arc, his magnum opus.

and then the audience is supposed to feel emotionally moved by his death
You're not "supposed" to feel anything. You have to form your opinions yourself unless you are completely retarded and need panels of characters reacting to something to tell you what you should feel.

I hope one day someone makes an anime that is basically the Chimera Ant arc by itself. HxH is great fun what with the bungee gum aspects and whatnot, but that storyline would thrive in a more realistic tone.

How exactly? The chapter where he dies is just him asking Komugi to hold him. There's nothing forcing you to feel anything, most people just happen to find it sad because it's a humanizing moment for him showing he's afraid of death.

What did user mean by this?

most people just happen to find it sad because it's a humanizing moment for him showing he's afraid of death.

This is exactly the problem. It's a cheap attempt to "humanize" a character that there is little reason to care for. You'd have to have a pretty low level of emotional maturity to find his death sad. Which isn't surprising, when you look at the level of discussion in most HxH threads.

Aaron Rodriguez

Carter Carter

It's a cheap attempt to "humanize" a character
Elaborate, i don't see how it's cheap or why you put it between quotes.
that there is little reason to care for
How do you mean? He's introduced as a character who follows what he's biologically programmed to do, but is also shown to re-think his motivations. He legitimately wants to do the right thing, his end goal is to erase inequality and create a world as fair as possible. He's also shown to be merciful and forgiving on top of that but there's a level of nuance to him as well, as yourself and even Netero pointed out.
If you believe a character has to be 100% good and literally Jesus to care about them i'd have to question your level of emotional maturity instead.

Caleb Nelson
Caleb Nelson

Yeah for me CA arc was the worst arc in HxH Togashi taking so many breaks during it proves it.

Both Yorkshin and GI are vastly superior to CA.

Grayson Brooks

CA > Yorkshin > GI
What does the author taking breaks have to do with your enjoyment of the story?

Henry Garcia

It means even the author knew he had fucked up in this arc and spent 6 years on an arc that should of taken 2 years just to prevent it from being a complete clusterfuck

That doesn't make any sense, the hiatus started getting bad around chapter 250 and there wasn't too much going on at that point.
