I don't know. What's yours? (Other than HxH)

>>133120100
Hard to say what my favorite is.
HxH 125, 126, and 131 were all up there.

Pic related and CG's final episode were also great, due to the hype/payoff.

Well 5 had the cool fight, coach being coach, all that hotblooded bullshit. I take it you mean "why not 6" too, so i'll also mention that while 6's end is great, the rest of the episode doesn't compare to 5. The end does, but in my books both the climaxes are about equally strong. It's just a weaker episode on the whole

Until we do get a continuation he may as well be dead. But either way I don't see how it matters: the point was that he faced his past demons and tried to move forward in life. The opposite of Vicious, who attempted to bury it once and for all by killing anyone related to it.

Episodes 22-24 were a clusterfuck of orgasmic despair, I honestly don't know if I can pick a favorite out of the three of them. The usage of Ode to Joy in episode 24 would have to be the absolute best usage of that piece, or really any classical music in general, in any media that I've ever experienced, and was definitely the climax of the series.
