When I started watching this I thought it was cliché. The animation looked okay, but it just takes so damn long to build up the story, especially in the beginning. I have to admit that while watching the first episodes of Hunter X Hunter I thought to myself "oh man this sucks", but after a couple of episodes, it finally starts to draw you into the story surprisingly.
My favorite character is Hisoka because of his attitude. He's a complete pervert (pay attention to the dialog for some really funny lines by him) but he just comes across like a guy who is just bored of outranking everyone in fights. Throughout the series Hunter X Hunter has a couple of episodes that are typical training-stuff that is quite common in a Shonen Jump anime. However, the story takes a turn when the hunt for this video game-console starts that allows players to enter a virtual reality world in real-time.
One thing I didn't like is the ending, because well... There isn't really any. The story starts out with this boy who wants to become a hunter just like his dad so that he can go look for him, but whatever happened to that in the later seasons? I don't know, but somehow this never gets explained (and I watched everything, including the OVA's).
Despite that though, its a quite refreshing but a little bit underrated Shonen Jump anime with some nice character and story development. Just make sure you get past the first episodes though.
