Pika is only a small part of why Yorkshin was so good, the interesting and charismatic characters, their different motives, the betrayals, the crazy plans and the dark and gritty elements, it all came down together perfectly. The Succession Arc is a fucking snoozefest. It feels like Togashi is trying to recreate an interesting thriller, involving spies and different parties, but the result so far is a fucking mess. Too many characters involved, episodes dedicated to characters we don't give a fuck about, walls of text and lots of exposition. It's such a chore to read, no wonder people were waiting for the Troupe, Illumi and Hisoka to spice things up.
