Review Episode 16:
Hisoka is really creeping me out right now which is why I’m kind of impressed with both Kurapika and Gon in this episode as they both had confrontations with Hisoka where they didn’t curl into a ball and cry. Seriously, I think that would be an appropriate reaction for having to deal with him.
I love that even though Gon had his moment, after all that training and all that effort, immediately after he had the wind taken from his sails. So far Gon has had an incredibly easy ride and given his age and inexperience it seems that set backs like these should be occurring more often. Still, Hisoka is seriously creepy.
Review Episode 17:
Killua continues to be my favourite character in this show. I love how laid back he is during the early part of this episode and how he still takes the time to mess with the bald guy by switching the tags before he throws them. From Killua’s point of view this gained him nothing but the amusement of messing with someone.
On the other hand, Gon reuniting with Leorio and Kurapika was kind of bland. The only thing I really took from the following sequence is Gon has not instantly recovered from his set back last episode and that’s nice to see him developing a bit. I’m not overly concerned about the snake trap because given the sheer number of episodes still to come, I somehow doubt they are about to get killed.
