Watched through it now too. I definitely agree that everything until ~75 was the best part of it with the Ant Arc feeling a bit too stretched out, though I personally liked the ending. We see Gon accomplish his anime-long goal of finding his father and get introduced to the following plot, which instantly works as an amazing teaser for following seasons.
Hey, thanks for sharing your opinion and sorry for the late response! Haven’t been active here for quite a while now, despite for updating my list.
One of the things I didn’t like about the ending was the fact that Ging does not really stay true to his words. Through the whole anime there is this golden thread that Gon has to find his father and even if he finds him, Ging will ‘run’ from him. Yeah, he still did not make it too easy for him in the end, but still I think it was a bit lame after making such a statement.
And secondly, as far as I remember correctly, you don’t get much information on Kurapika, for instance. Considering that he is one of the main characters of the story, I think they could have revealed a bit more.
I think I also had some other small critics but I guess those were the most important. However, all in all I still liked the ending. And this whole anime :)
Minor manga spoilers:
So since I wrote the comment, I actually started the manga (Which honestly isn’t that good, it’s just walls upon walls of text) and Kurapika becomes extremely important if not the main character after the anime ends. Generally I’d honestly agree with the whole ending not making a whole lot of sense, esp. considering how everything after the anime just becomes a huge mess and feels completely unrelated to the HunterXHunter story we had so far.
That’s interesting to know. But the manga is not finished yet, right? Hope I remember correctly but I think I heard that, due to some illness or something, the mangaka is very slowly updating this manga and might even not finish it. But I’m not sure. However, I know there’s an extra manga story about Hisoka. Since he’s my fav character I guess I’ll read it someday :)
Oh yeah, the manga is infamous for it’s absolutely awful schedule (And honestly, super rushed art sometimes), I’d say that it’s highly likely it’ll never finish. The last chapter was released 2 years ago and the entire arc drags itself out even more than the Chimera Ant arc.
