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

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

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

Review Episode 24: So after everything Gon and the others have done essentially Killua is just going to walk out to meet them. This just kind of seems like entirely wasted space. I mean sure, we get to meet Killua's family and realise they are all incredibly crazy in unique and interesting ways, but that … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 24 + 25

Hunter x Hunter Episodes 22 + 23

Review Episode 22: Gon is still pretty angry this episode which is a nice change of character for him. Admittedly, its a little bit like Jekyl and Hyde with the two aspects of his personality not really connecting well at the moment, but at least its a switch from happy-go-lucky every single episode. Once again … Continue reading Hunter x Hunter Episodes 22 + 23

Hunter X Hunter Episodes 20 + 21

Review Episode 20: Okay, when they set up these matches I was not expecting Killua to be the one who lost. Nor was I expecting a "I'm your brother" reveal so there we go. Two surprises in one episode. Still, the moment below broke my heart just a little bit. He's so cute. You know, … Continue reading Hunter X Hunter Episodes 20 + 21

Hunter X Hunter Episodes 12 + 13

Review Episode 12: Remind me to never, ever get trapped in a room with Killua and Gon. Seriously, how the other characters hadn't killed them prior to them being released I will never know. They might be adorable, and they are, but small room, noisy energetic kids, and this is not a combination I want … Continue reading Hunter X Hunter Episodes 12 + 13

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
