Jacob Potila was actually a Jacob Flotilla of lies.- WarTurkey
After having it recommended to me for years, a few weeks ago I decided to just dive into it and see if I enjoyed it. I was pleasantly surprised by what I initially expected to be your average run-of-the-mill shounen with a plucky young protagonist eventually morphing into something far darker and engrossing. By the Yorknew City arc I was hooked, and then by the end of the Chimera Anr arc I was gobsmacked. Some people really haaaaated how much it dragged on and the supposed unnecessary time spent on side characters, but fuckem I really liked it. I'm still reading the manga so the giant walls of text haven't cropped up yet.

So yeah uh I guess have any of you folks read/watched it? What did you think? It's definitely up there with my favorites.

The second ED is straight fire.

Signature goes here.
One of my managers in Epcot absolutely raved about the show so I gave it a go; it's way better than I thought it was going to be. I don't want to get too invested into it though until the manga finishes; I don't want another Berserk situation with cliffhangers....

The Chimera Ant arc is basically a litmus test as to whether someone is a Hunterfan or a Hunterfag.

A Hunterfan can acknowledge that the series is not perfect, attesting to the fact that the CA arc has objective flaws and while still better than most action anime aimed at younger boys is an ugly mark on an otherwise superb series.

A Hunterfag will simply drool on about how everything in the show is brilliant and the CA arc is its magnum opus. They will ignore criticisms and dismiss them with various forms of "2deep4u" despite there being nothing thoughtful or really interesting about the arc or the characters it introduces.

It's basically the reverse pleb filter of the series.

You'll be waiting a while then. I thought the point that the anime left off wasn't too clifferhangery.

Ass-sooming you mean the 2011 one, I think it honestly ended perfectly.  I read the manga now to pick up where the anime left off, but I don't find it necessary, necessarily.  Ending on Gon finding his dad and the group splitting up until they adventure again was a great ending that suggested to the viewer that their stories will go on but this story is over.

My mistake, I had clover as my title instead of carmen. I guess I was going for a character theme at some point lol

Anyway I'm Carmen. Your post about Kurapika makes me think something is going on with him, gender wise
