Review Episode 10:
The main group are having a bit of a disagreement with Kurapika refusing to finish off his opponent but rather than watching them wallow we get to cut over to Hisoka finishing off his route through the tower. I liked that just when it looked like things were shaping up for a major fight between Hisoka and the previous examiner that the fight was cut short when Hisoka just had enough and ended it. It was a nice moment and kept things moving. Cutting back to the main group, Leorio finally got over his sulk and actually had one of his cooler moments. I’m kind of wondering if he’ll win his match but part of me doesn’t want him to because I’d really like to see Killua have to take some action, but I guess I’ll find out when I go to the next episode.
Review Episode 11:
Leorio went from one of his cooler moments to one of his most lame in about the span of five minutes, but that’s pretty much expected at this point plus it guaranteed Killua got to have a match (though not much of one). I’m sorry, that was incredibly cool. Can we please see more of that?
Anyway, three examinees are finished, and Gon’s group are now waiting out 50 hours in a room that looks extremely modern, still adding to my confusion about what time period this whole show is set in. Looking forward to what happens next.
