Review Episode 8:
Just what we needed, a trip through a tower full of traps with Tonpa. Try saying that quickly. Anyway, once again we get to see the characters all be fairly callous after one of the applicants is eaten while attempting to scale down the outside of the tower. While I’m not expecting them to cry buckets they could at least pretend that they are upset that a person just died for a test. Other than that, mostly we get to learn more about what a despicable downer of a human being Tonpa is and I am really, really hoping something nasty happens to him soon. To be honest though, I think I’m getting hooked on this show because I nearly skipped ot the next episode without stopping to consider my thoughts on this one. I just want to know what happens next.
Review Episode 9:
I genuinely have no idea what time period this show is meant to be set in or based on at this point. The use of technology seems really random and inconsistent (because we had the laptop guy who dropped out, and there’s an airship, and this room but not seeing phones or modern weapons really at this point).
I kind of wondered when the rules for Gon’s match were explained what was going to stop them from just blowing out the other person’s candle so I’m kind of happy with how that match resolved but the real standout was Kurapika.
It was a great moment for him and what made it even better was Gon’s reaction.
