Some semblance of order has been restored to my universe - H x H is back.
genuinely tender and beautiful moment - which is the magic of Togashi, I suppose.
reduced so quickly into pure psychopathy after having been shown as quite a sad and vulnerable character. I was also aghast at the choice of BGM for the scene where Killua and Gon were fleeing her - it seemed completely out of place to me. In any event there's no denying she quickly reverts to a state where the elevators don't go the top floor, and in the process reveals her ability - a kind of fortunetelling using her own blood (type A) and some kind of hideous "mermaid" relic which allows her to locate Gon and Kil (and to do who knows what else).
physically rip a wire out of skull and thus to have the scales lifted from his eyes... It just doesn't feel like Hunter X Hunter to me. It doesn't seem like Togashi's usual style, or his usual standard.
Knov is knowingly manipulating Palm and her emotions because her powers are useful, in a far more calculating and cold manner than anything Gon did. Knov and Shoot are there to observe the boys to see if they're up to seeing Kaitou in his current state (a clue as to just how grisly that is) and what they see is the two acting very much like the goofy youngsters they are when their guard is down. That means seeing Killua, especially, feeling "liberated" as he says himself - free, at last, to stand at Gon's side without (mostly) second thoughts. Meanwhile Knuckle and Morel are off to do battle with Cheethu, apparently having been the ones chosen to fulfil the Hunter Association's promise to stop him. Cheethu is definitely faster than they are, but all he's show so far really is speed - and given what we've seen of their strength, I can't imagine Cheethu has enough of his own to survive.
