Tuesday’s Top 5: Non-Weapon Items Used as Weapons

Alright, this list could literally go on forever because anime has used a lot of items that we usually don't consider weapons in fights. Cards, coins, crosses, hair pins... You name it and some anime character somewhere has attempted to weaponise it (probably successfully). I narrowed this list down to characters and items that were … Continue reading Tuesday’s Top 5: Non-Weapon Items Used as Weapons

Review Episode 49: I have to admit, Killua had a point with this imagery. Two Hisoka's is terrifying just to imagine. What makes less sense is that Killua himself then spends the rest of the episode underestimating the opponent and the end result is pretty much as expected. The only thing that doesn't make sense … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 49 + 50

Review Episode 47: Kurapika has always had a darker side but this episode he left the rest of his personality at home. That was very, very cold and got dark pretty quickly compared to previous segments of this show. Though I would have to say that I really enjoyed seeing Kurapika finally get some of … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 47 + 48

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

Review Episode 43: Well the auction wrapped up fast. Kind of amazed at how quick Baise died given they had bothered to introduce her but at this point I guess that's pretty standard given how many of the extras died during the entrance exam. This show doesn't seem overly concerned with its body count nor … Continue reading Hunter X Hunter Episodes 43 + 44

Review Episode 41: Well, this was a lot of set up. Gon and Killua are trying to earn money but kind of don't have the business sense to succeed at this point. Their efforts are cute but fairly futile. Meanwhile, it looks like the underground auction is going to get interesting, only not in the … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 41 + 42

Review Episode 39: We've kind of ditched Gon and Killua and jumped over to Kurapika. In six months he's learned Nen (kind of different from Gon and Killua's crash course but probably more appropriate) and he's a conjurer. Not certain, but I'm pretty sure he's a lot more agitated than when he was hanging around … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 39 + 40

Review Episode 37: What's in the box? Sorry, I couldn't resist. So after Killua and Gon have some fun on the island, and Mito terrifies Gon with her treatment of his licence, things get serious and we finally find out how Gon ended up on the island with Mito. We learn very little about Gon's … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 37 + 38

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

Review Episode 34: Why is it when Killua says not to worry, I start to worry? Still, the events this episode were not unexpected and I kind of wondered why coercion to fight hadn't come up earlier. Essentially, Gon's 2 months of non-training have come to an end and now he and Killua are apparently … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 34 + 35
