    Yorknew Arc: A Complex Game of Cat, Spider, and Hisoka

    I’m gonna come out and say it: this is my favorite Hunter X Hunter arc. Sure, the Chimera Ant arc is incredible and all! And there’s a lot to love in the Election arc! But this? This, in my opinion, is peak HxH! Now armed with Nen, Gon and Killua make their way to Yorknew […]
