Been wondering after all these anime series I've watched and seeing all the different ways energy has been explained, used and brought out of countless character s, whats the best one (in your opinion) out there? Maybe drop an explanation below, if none of these choices top you list then let me know what series holds the #1 spot in your heart.

Hunter x Hunter by far. In Hunter x Hunter "Nen", the spiritual energy / special power, is treated as a game more than anything else.
You basically design your own powers, the only catch is, that the harder your powers are to use, the more restrictions they have, the more powerful they are.

A good example is Kurapica. Kurapica's powers are useless against everything but spiders (I am guessing in both literal and figurative sense). However against spiders, his powers are pretty much invincible. The catch is, he cannot use his power against anyone who is not a spider (Not in the Phantom Troupe), if he does, he dies.

So unlike Bleach / Naruto, where their powers pretty much arrive in a nice little unexplained package, Hunter x Hunter basically made a game out of the powers.

I forgot how Nen itself was explained though, it was some kind of innate aura power. Like the untapped 90% of the brain or something like that.

This is where I give Kishi His props. The use of Chakra and Jutsu are VERY well defined. So Shippuden is the answer here; Bleach a close second.
