Re: 3 Gripes You Have With Hunter x Hunter?
1/ The entirety of the Chimera ant arc.
Words can't describe accurately enough how much I dislike this arc. It's imo the worst written arc in HxH. It's feels like it doesn't even belong to the series. It was like the Chimera ant arc, and the Yorknew arc were written by two different people.
2/ Gon. I think he is probably the only battle protagonist that I dislike. It all started since his fight with Bomber, and then the Chimera ant arc happened.
You could argue that he is more unique, but while I think his writing is interesting on some level, I still think he is not that good of a character. His development seems inconsistent, and the reason and conflict for it, being Kite, seems really stupid and Meh.
3/ I'm not sure if you can say it's a gripe. But I don't like how I can't get attached emotionally to the characters. There is no really any character that I actually care about, I like a lot, but it's not like with Naruto, where I care a lot about many characters, and I'm heavily invested in them emotionally, actually one of my top favorite aspects of Naruto, but it seems completely lacking in HxH, even though I watched HxH when I was a kid, and way before I even knew what Naruto was.
Honorable mention: Greed Island was pretty boring.
