Hunter x Hunter Episodes 45 + 56

Review Episode 45: You know, when Kurapika left to meet Hisoka I kind of expected there to be more casualties amongst the bodyguards (okay, I expected them all to get wiped out by the end of the episode). Still, I guess there's plenty of time for them to die yet or maybe they'll just disappear … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 45 + 56

Hunter x Hunter Episodes 35 + 36

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 … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 35 + 36

Hunter x Hunter Episodes 31 + 32

Review Episode 31: I'm definitely a fairly petty person because watching Hisoka get knocked around a bit this episode was kind of fun. What made this better was he didn't suddenly become incompetent or lose his composure. They merely pitted him against someone who's power was a bit unusual. Still, I really pity his opponent … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 31 + 32

Hunter x Hunter Episodes 29 + 30

Review Episode 29: "This is a shady, highly frowned upon method" that Wing is about to use anyway to power up Killua and Gon and ensure they get back to floor 200 before midnight. Well, one of the consistent themes of this story is that Gon kind of gets through things so I guess this … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 29 + 30

Hunter X Hunter Episodes 16 + 17

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 … Continue reading Hunter X Hunter Episodes 16 + 17

Hunter x Hunter Episodes 14 + 15

Review Episode 14: Part of me is a little concerned about how little regard some of these characters have had for their surroundings. Small details like the last 24 numbers and who owns each one seem to have passed a few of our characters by. Given some of their feats of concentration and observation that … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 14 + 15

Hunter X Hunter EPisodes 10 + 11

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 … Continue reading Hunter X Hunter EPisodes 10 + 11
