These last few chapters have been really good, and I'm not worried about this king succession arc being entertaining anymore. The fighting has already started, its just mostly covert. I loved that queen wasn't useless and immediately picked up on ways she could help assist. And Kurapika having to play everything by ear because he is at a major disadvantage with the weakest prince/queen combo is interesting considering hes probably the strongest person in the conflict right now.
I guess I just don't understand what's so boring about these last chapters. Though I guess part of it is an apparent aversion to a lot of reading in a manga chapter.
From the comments I read, many who dislike it are more than willing to read but in return expect HxH to have some relevant philosophical points. It is still a shonen written by the YuYu Hakusho guy. It has some really cool stuff but there is also some flaws that should be overlooked to really enjoy it. JJBA is a great comparison because of how Araki constantly brings up shit that is immediately contradicted, "they are called stands because they stand beside you" then Joseph grows vines out of his arm. I find all this dialogue to be part of the ridiculous charm and it is kind of what kurapiks is built for, none of the other main chars would bother with all this internal monologue.
Bill is my hero yet again, this team of 4 is getting very cool. Unfortunately 4th prince has nen soldiers so he won't need Kurapika's "training" offer. Good try though.
