And....the end ;_;

The montage played in the beginning of this episode was sad. The top of the world tree is awesome though. Loved it with Gon and Ging talking up there. So yeah, the show is over. I'm going to miss this. I think the manga is on hiatus right now so....

I hope Togashi gets better though. Rating this 9/10. Great show overall.

Some nice, small filler scenes at the beginning of the episode that capture the journey of Gon beautifully. They also included a little Parasyte reference (nice way for the HxH 2011 staff to hand over the torch to Madhouse's next production) as well as a small Togashi cameo.

The climb itself and the talk with Ging were well done, albeit a bit slowly paced for obvious reasons. I loved how silly the birds looked, the hints at the Dark Continent arc and it was overall a good way to lead to the final segment - the last montage of this anime. The last few minutes are indeed spent on chapter 339 while "Departure" plays in its entirety; the best possible stopping point for the show.

And so, it finally ends... after 148 episodes, a great ending to a wonderful story. Madhouse did a fabulous job adapting this manga and managed to pull off an excellent adaption of one of the best action/adventure Shounen manga. Well deserved 9/10 points, thanks for the three years of quality entertainment!

PS:
To everyone who wants to skip to the manga right now: Start with chapter 340 and buy the official scans from WSJA if you live in North America.

Well watching this has been fun 8/10.

Probably the best shounen anime I've seen.Would've rated this higher if it hadn't been for the Chimera Ant arc.

Dark Continent arc probably won't be adapted till 5-10 years from now.

All good things come to an end. Absolutely beautiful adaptation done by Madhouse.

But they shouldn't have used Departure at the end of this episode. I would have preferred silence, just like how the chapter was named Silence. Was still pretty sad. ;_;

And here ends my favorite anime
That was a really good finale, but no they didn't animate anything from ch.340, it feels like they won't continue it
Anyway, 10/10, good bye to my favorite anime

Didn't like Departure at the end, it ruined the mood imho, even the silence would have been better

Hmm, maybe it's because of the contents of 339, but that didn't look like a real ending to me. It looked more of a season finale. The way they presented it also didn't look like they weren't gonna make any more of the anime ever again.

Can't watch it yet! X(
I want to ask though, if Ging mentioned about the ways of getting into the Dark Continent? Like in the manga?

I don't know what you will do, but I will start watching HxH 1999 and YYH. I read both manga two times already, but for the sake of Togashi Tuesday I will gladly go through it again in animated form.

That's a good way to replace HxH 2011,I'll probably will watch the HxH 1999,I want to see the differences between the two adaptations too.

Such a masterpiece. That is how a shounen anime is done.
Not that I do not want a continuation, but they took the main driving plot and gave us a satisfying ending.
Gon wanted to see Ging, and it ended just that way. We didn't have to wait for a sequel to see that. Don't get me wrong, there are things that are still unclear so another season is always welcome.

I also think they did a good job with the last few minutes. Song in the background, and everything is conveyed through visuals. I think that was a good note to leave us on.

10/10 series. I rarely give those out.

Oh boy, now I feel hollow inside. Perfect ending for such a great anime.
(A shame we didn't hear Hunting for your Dream again for one final time, though.)

Absolutely loved the foreshadowing of a few things in the remaining manga chapters as well.

I...can't feel anything anymore....

If there was a ''11/10'' option which i could use only on 3 series, i would go with HxH without thinking.
Thank You Madhouse and Togashi.This is what i call a masterpiece.

Yes.

Even if I write an essay of 1000 words, it won't be enough to describe how amazing HxH truly is.

So, I would instead thank everyone involved into making HxH. Thank you for bringing this masterpiece into my life.

That Gotoh troll scene. And I got teary seeing Netero's photo and Meruem holding Komugi's hand.

Can't believe it's over. Possibly the most exciting anime I've ever seen. This is why I feel that battle shounen anime reign supreme over other anime genres. Togashi, you got yourself a lifelong HxH fan.

I started tearing up when they showed Meruem and Komugi's hands holding each other in death TT __TT WHY U DO THIS MH?!

Absolutely beautiful episode and ending! Loved the way they handled the silence chapter ^^

Loved the conversation between Gon and Ging and how they were both telling each other lots of their stories and experiences :*)

“You should enjoy the little detours. To the fullest. Because that’s where you’ll find the things more important than what you want”. That was so nice thinking about it in context ;_;

And Dat intro to the Dark Continent!! >.<!! I still can't imagine how the hell this World tree is but a seedling that failed to grow XD And Ging telling Gon that 20 minutes to climb it was meh O_o XD

Anyway...I'm gonna miss this sooooo much!!! 100/10 and my #1 anime of all time <3 Plz come back Togashi T^T

Honestly one of the best anime I've ever seen, and even though I personally hate it when anime don't adapt the entire manga, I had to make an exception for this because this had a very satisfying conclusion whilst also being open to possible continuation. Simply wonderfully done! Hunter x Hunter, I will truly miss you.

Perfect for the journey of Gon and HxH.

That beginning and ending of the episode ~ ;_;
The OSTs while Gon was on his way up the tree, just... omg
Gon climbing that tree from the 500m mark took him only 20 minutes, omg haha
Both him and Ging talking about what has happened throughout their journey ~
Gon giving Ging his Hunter card back
So sad to see it end.

Omg, I know right. Tuesdays will be forever lonely now.
And that's a pretty good idea.

That ending with Departure only made it worse.

I'm kinda happy that I started watching this very late (start of election arc) because I didn't have to wait for so many episodes. Easily goes into my top 5 series.
I already started watching the 1999 series as a replacement, and after that I'll probably re-watch the 2011 one starting from where the 1999 one ends. And start reading the manga of course. I hope that the anime will return eventually, once Togashi has made enough material. Which will take looong, because hiatuses.

Damn that ending left me with some unknown answers. But now it has ended hopefully it won't do a Bleach when we are still waiting for 3 years so far. I've definitely enjoyed hxh :''''(. And the manga has stoped too oh what to do D'''':

Fabolous ending ep with lots of memories which just made it perfect.
The highlight for me thought where the big birds at the top, YOPIE YOPIE XDDD
Seems Kurapika also managed to gather more eyes of his clan, I wonder what happened... I think that's the current arc of the manga but I'll leave that for at a later date,
Anyways good job Madhouse, the only one I like that you guys created xD
