Too many good to chose from to make a definitive choice for now, but Hypothetical T.V. sounds awesome. Have you seen the episode "Interdimensional Cable" from Rick And Morty? You'd never be bored again!

I just gotta that say that the Greed Island is one of the coolest and most interesting arcs I've ever seen in a show. It's such an out there idea though but Hunter x Hunter made it work. HxH is one of the more intelligent shonens out there but this took up another level. I can see how the overall weirdness and card focus of it could lose people though.

Yeah. I had to skip the back half, it lost me. The next two arcs are fantastic though.

I give Joey the King's Hand card so he can pay for his sister's surgery, then take the King's Opposite Hand for myself so I can duel Pegasus and save my grandfather's soul.

The dub seems to be getting to it now. But I loved reading it in the manga. The story can get really thorough with certain stuff

I don't think THAT many people, even Hunter X Hunter fans, paid enough attention to the card descriptions in that arc to ever think about making this kind of choice.
