He is a good protagonist and also that can made mistakes and have a very good development...unlike another protagonist who always says Sate Sate Sate ugh.

I hate this goddamn son of a b*tch 

Let me start off by saying I loved the Chimera Ant arc. I loved seeing the King and Neferpitou overcome their insectoid natures and grow into genuinely likable characters. I liked seeing how different chimeras handled their dual nature differently, and the way the tensions between the Chimeras and Humans unraveled. And loving all of this, specifically loving Neferpitou as a character, made what Gon did at the end of the arc extremely painful. The moment I really started to hate him was when Neferpitou was trying to heal Komugi, and Gon threatens Komugi's life; an innocent human girl, just to get Neferpitou to do what he wants. This is the moment that it dawned on me what a hypocritical, selfish, sociopathic little jerk Gon was. There are definitely hints of that in Gon's personality leading up to this point. The moment when he asks the phantom troupe how they can kill people who have nothing to do with them rings especially hollow when Gon has no problem with a serial killer later just because the serial killer is convenient to him. Essentially, Gon is an entirely selfish character. He has no sense of morality; only judging whether things are good or bad by whether they benefit him. But it was easy to overlook that up until that point because of his more likeable traits. That scene with Komugi was the point where it became unforgivable to me. Threatening to kill an innocent little girl for his own selfish reasons was over the line, especially with how repentant Neferpitou was. And the subsequent scene where he brutally crushes Neferpitou's skull was extremely hard to watch. Seeing something pure and good being destroyed like that brings out such a sick feeling of helplessness. I tried to keep going after that arc because I genuinely love this series, but all I could think about was how much I wanted Gon to die, so I had to take a break.

I suppose its a credit to the series that few other pieces of media have made me feel such strong emotions, and I know this was intentional. Gon is written to be a flawed character, and the end of that arc is supposed to be heartwreching. But every time I want to pick this series back up, the same feelings bubble up all over again. I go back to the scene where Neferpitou dies and I just feel so angry and sad that I can't do it.
