Ha! i knew HxH doesn't end with Chimera Ant arc!But nice to get a re-confirmation.

Yeah, but considering the number of manga chapters left, this summer will probably be the last of HxH anime. Glad but also sad at the same time.

Eh. I'm not sure how I feel about some of the shows. Hunter x Hunter's next arc (Election arc) should be interesting though. Also, I'm looking to the new Black Butler this Summer.
