Review Episode 35:
What was that? This episode just had so much packed into it that it was like you couldn’t stop to catch your breath. They learn the last stage of their whole training thing and its revealed that Wing was actually also giving Gon the last stage of his Hunter’s exam, so congratulations this time you pass for real (unless there’s some other secret hidden test that they just haven’t told us about yet). Still, all of that rapidly takes a back seat to the Gon vs Hisoka fight coming up.
Anyway, the fight starts and while the end of it is going to be tragic (I’m already flinching at the thought of the next episode), we got one of those rare perfect moments in anime. Gon finally landed a clean punch on Hisoka’s face and it was as satisfying as you would expect it to be.
Still, time to start running Gon. Very, very fast, I’d suggest.
Review Episode 36:
Okay, that wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. Hisoka actually used some self-restraint for once. That was nice of him, for a sadist.
However, Gon did still get beaten quite soundly and the only reason he was still standing at the end was because the ref was calling points quickly and Hisoka was still kind of playing.
The take-away from this is that two episodes ago I said I was more or less over the arena. We then have a really fantastic fight between two characters that’s been brewing for awhile, Gon finally getting to return Hisoka’s number plate, and even though he lost he’s now happy to go home and show off his Hunter’s Licence so great fight and story progression and we’re leaving the arena. Awesome progress for two episodes.
