well, I have read over 100 chapters of HunterXHunter, and I want to know, does the main character ever go on that adventure that the premise promises? the thing is I read the description expecting an adventure anime where the man character becomes a hunter and looks for riches while searching for is father. what I got was one tournament arc after another, and I HATE tournament arc in manga that really shouldn't have them (example: YuYu Hakusho) if the whole premise revolves around tournaments then it's fine. so does the manga ever get away from tournaments or is it just one tournament after another. also I do understand WHY there are so many, the manga was originally published in the 90's during a boom in the popularity of tournament arcs (thanks to DBZ) so often times battle manga weren't green lit UNLESS it had a tournament saga, or were allowed to continue unless it had at least one (YuYu Hakusho) so I understand why there are so many. just it's 2013 now and after such a long hiatus is the mangaka finally going back to what was promised? one more thing I think the first tournament the hunter exam arc was appropriate n context to the story, as there should be some sort of licensing exam for something like being a Hunter. if the manga doesn't drop the whole tournament thing, I will drop the manga and anime for good as constant tournaments bore me, especially in manga that should be about adventuring.

The Yorknew City arc and the Chimera ant arc are not tournaments.

Hi there. Looks like you got a couple of answers, but I'm going to close the thread as it's a personal thread, which is not allowed by the Site & Forum Rules.

Questions such as this, when answers cannot easily be found through an internet search, may be asked in the existing Anime Help Thread (for future reference, you can find that as one of the "sticky" threads near the top of the Anime forum).

It's also something that could come up during during an existing discussion of the show, and if you regularly participate in those discussions, this is something you could ask as part of the discussion. For Hunter x Hunter, you may want to take a look at:

/forumtopic-793007/hunter-x-hunter-chimera-ant-arc-discussion
/forumtopic-735617/impressions-on-hunter-x-hunter-2011

So, basically, only start a new thread if it's for discussion. If the main benefit of the post is to help you personally or provide an answer you specifically want, then it's a personal or help, and should be asked in the appropriate "Help" thread or as part of an existing discussion.
