It has to be Shin York, with the Hunters exam a close second. I like HxH dark shounen feel. It's rare to find shounen that are borderline seinen like HxH. If it wasn't for Gon, this series could easily have been a seinen manga because of the dynamics of its characters
hmmm that's hard lol i pretty much like all of them lol yea how biased can i get XDD but like the majority of people i'll probably have to go with york shin on this one. I just loved the arc to bits. I thought the ryodan were perfect antagonists and i loved the development kurapica went through learning to deal with killing someone. Wow the arc really amazed me. Like said above i loved the dark moments it added which is rare in a lot of shounen manga nowadays.
Contrary to other people's opinions i actually think the chimera ant arc is one of my fave's too. Hmm maybe it's cause i didn't read it daily like others and just recently caught up to the manga, but i really love the developments of killua and gon in this arc. There's also a lot of scenes that i really want to see get animated, and pray that Nippon animation animates it soon!!!

Re: Favorite Arc
Yorkshin (even though its a prequel)
hunter exams (dont get tired of rereading it)
Celestial tower and Greed island (tied for 3rd)
i never realized there has been so many arcs now. They seem to just meld together and if you dont look for it you cant really tell because even in the middle chapters inbetween each arc interesting things still happen.
Trafalgar Law is the new Shichibukai. He cut down the samurai from Wano. 2-15-12
I always considered the Celestial Tower as part of the Hunter Exam. Remember that the Exam wasn't finished until they developed Nen powers. So the Zoldiecks' and Celestial Tower seem to me like the 'Hunter Exam Arc' altogether. No distinction.
Imo, there were 4 so far: Hunter Exam; York Shin (Kurapica's quest against the Ryodan); Greed Island; and Chimera Ants.
York Shin for now, solely because of the spider's leader part where he conducts the destruction of the city and then fights off the Zoaldycks. Although Chimera is slowly growing on me, so my answer might change after this arc is done (depending on its end).
Let it be known far and wide
I cheer for Saint-Etienne from the bottom of my heart
Really didn't like so muck Yorkshin. It was too much foccused on the Spiders and I don't like them that much. I would vote on Greed Island, that was a very well-thinked saga (loved the "in game" scenario) and were where we finnaly got to see the Nen in use, but i must change my vote.
Vote for Chimera Arc. It started in a boring way, seemed like it would be a bad arc, but evolved so much that it's better every chapter. My favourite, absolutely. Nen to the max
I am still only at the Greed Island and i don't really have a favourite. I don't really think there an arc, that is better than the other, though for me until now the Zoldycks is definitely the one that imo wasn't that well developed. About the others i can't really distinguish cuz both were important in their on way and well developed.
But as i still haven't read everything, i am going to wait to vote
