Still, that's not enough "action" to warrant him a huge difference between his place and the next one (3rd) compared to the small difference between his place and the former one (1st). I still stand on his pretty boy looks + intelligence (cool looks) than him having cool "parts" in the manga.
It's not about action, it's about attitude. He's not intimidated by Hisoka and can reasonably defend himself against him. This is a measure of popularity, so attitude is one of the most important traits.

Really? I think he was pretty intimidated as he you know, ran away (which is a smart thing to do) as oppose to going back and taking Hisoka on (which is a brave but stupid thing to do). If he hadn't gone back for Leorio, there is a strong possibility that he will have the same fate as the other guy (Cherry?) who ran away too.

As for him blocking Hisoka's attack, it's kind of meh. It's just a straight-on simple attack like his (Hisoka's) attack on Satotz OR Gidou's straight on attack to Gon last episode. As I've already seen how cool Satotz caught the cards barehanded, Kurapika blocking the cards pales in comparison (w/c made me forget that he did that). Also, since Kurapika has superhuman qualities too like Gon (acute hearing, fast reflex) and he already seen Hisoka's attack early on, he should not have trouble blocking a "simple" attack like that. But I guess since this occurred real early in the manga, it's kind of cool to many.

Personally, Kurapika's attitude in the Hunter exam prior to the 4th segment comes across as an arrogant, know-it-all, indecisive (lack conviction) bugger with a tragic past; but hey, at least he's not emo. No offense to the Kurapika fans.

That being said, he was the one who changed the most during the Hunter exam. IMO

Very good episode. They changed how some stuff happened but the stuff they changed were minor but better then what the manga did for those scenes. The animation in this episode was also quite good and makes me look forward to the next arc.

Holy.... shit... now that... was worth the wait. The hatsu training was very good, and I really liked the part when Gon breaks the glass. Okay, now for the fight... it was terrific! and the animation was GODLIKE yo! and Hisoka's shining crotch!

Gon's punch was the highlight of the episode for me, and then after the epic punch connected... the ending music played... I need to see the rest of the fight NOAW!!

I'm totally going all fanboy right now
11/10

I like how in this story, despite Gon's rapid advancement, they continue to emphasize the gap in skill between Gon and Hisoka, yet also the fact that Gon is advancing rapidly.


And now we know what that hexagon in the ending means. So if we're to go by the ending, then as has been revealed, Gon is an enhancer and Killua is a transmuter. Killua's and Leorio's places on the hexagon imply they are Conjurer and Emitter, respectively.

They kept it! They kept it! Ahahaha! They kept it! I was afraid this scene would be axed by the censors but they kept it!

Score one for the 2011 version.

That aside, the nen explanations were handled very well, as usual with this series. They also did a good job at showing the progression of the training.

And HOT-DAMN that combat animation!

As everyone else said, animation was f*kn AMAZING!!! Def one of the most important fights in HxH's storyline, and I'm glad Madhouse isn't pulling the punches(hah!) for the animation for it.
