    Best Arc in Manga (Upto Now)

    Now that we're still on hiatus for 1 COMPLETE YEAR and few months, I decided to read the entire manga on one go.

    And it struck me how Togashi so easily switches the tone from funny to serious. Easily, one of the best at it. Especially when you get something like the Chimera Ant Arc after GI arc or the Yorknew arc after the Heavens Arena Arc.

    It's sad that the hiatus is still indefinite because there is so much of the Hunter X Hunter Universe to explore.

    But we have 340 chapters to pour over and I want to ask, which arc did you find the best?

    It may be because it had great character development, or had great action or something else.

    Please discuss!
    Reading is a good habit.

    Re: Best Arc in Manga (Upto Now)

    I think that I like every single arc for very different reasons.
    I love the Chimera Ants arc for many of the same reasons I love the Chapter Black arc in Yu Yu Hakusho.
    In that arc Togashi ponders identity and what it even means to be human, the cruel side of humanity and the kind side.
    It is light and dark that Togashi seems to be obsessed with.

    I love the Greed Isalnd arc simply for the sheer detail and thought put into creating the game world and its rules.
    Togashi is a mangaka that likes to place rules on situations and characters and see how to can work with them.
    Greed Island is an arc that really is detailed and complex I love it for that.

    I could go on and on for every single arc. But to choose a favourite I'd say of the dark arcs it would be Chimera Ant but of the more lighter toned arcs it would be a tie of Greed Island and Heaven's Arena.

    I believe the Chimera Ant arc is the best, and It's personally my all time favorite arc in Shonen.

    Chimera Ant Arc.

    It was filled with character development, character progression, interaction, awesome fight, dark yet sad atmosphere and several amazing moments (Palace invasion, Pitou's assault, Rose..and more).

    Made the poll multiple because c'mon one is never enough! Especially this Manga where each arc has a unique appeal.

    Early HxH is my favourite. Before even all the nen stuff started. Plus, there's lot of Hisoka going berserk.

    Re: Best Arc in Manga (Upto Now)

    Kinda hard to say because each arc is really different in terms of theme and tone. So it's really hard to compare.

    In terms of the best, I'd say Chimera Ant Arc.

    But if we're talking about favorites, mine would be the Hunter Exam arc in the manga, Heaven's Arena arc in the anime.

    The arcs I really enjoyed were Greed Island Arc and the Chimera Ants Arc.
    So many characters and epic fights. XD

    Yorknew arc is very well-written imo. It really showed a huge character development on Kurapika. The theme is awesome and Kurapika's bad-ass chains is just <3
    Greed Island arc is very well-written too because it surely is hard to conceptualize every single rules and cards in the game, showed also a great character development for Killua and Gon. And there's Bisuke. <3
    Chimera Ant arc is the bomb. You won't see anyone just gettin' KO'ed rather get killed and it's just pure bloodshed.

    Actually Togashi gave a very cynical yet true development nature in human beings. As Kite (RIP) once said, the Chimera Ants were like this because they had inherited genetic mindsets of human beings. So, in the end, the human beings WERE THE PROBLEM. And yet, in the end, Mereum's actions were more human-like than most of the real ones and by that, I mean in a good way. The Chimera Ant arc was a very brutal representation of evolution and so, it will be a arc I always treasure no matter how many more gems Togashi makes (fingers crossed!).

    Each arc has its flavor, but The ant arc for me is the best.
