Actually the cutting of the topknot is most associated not with death, but with a loss of social status. That makes perfect sense with Netero, as he's just declared himself "challenger" and admitted that he's weaker than his opponents.

Oh! Well, I learned something new again. I always thought it symbolized death for seeing Japanese in media cutting their top knots before they ask their companions to kill them or when an assassin comes with the knot of his victim as proof of his deed.

It can mean that too, but primarily it's a social status issue.

Perfect example of this is in season two of Avatar: The Last Airbender when a certain banished prince cut himself off from his homeland and cut off his topknot to signify he was an outcast

There seems to be a broadcast delay with H x H this week, possibly due to Koshien. I can't find any source indicating it's off altogether (it's supposed to be next week, though). Don't know for sure when #93 is airing.

Crunchyroll's simulcast is still scheduled at its regular time so it should be airing sometime soon, if not a bit late

First of all holy crap, she cleans up pretty nice

Secondly, who knew Gon was such a player.

Thirdly cliffhanger ending is cliffhanger

I know, right? Could do without that scene.

So excited to see how Killua fares against Rammot all by his lonesome. I think that this is his make or break moment in this series

Sometimes the cougar stalks the prey, and sometimes the cougar is the one stalked... Something tells me it's Palm we really ought to be worried about.

WTF was up with that newscaster, Togashi-sensei??

And the sick Chimera Ant King overthrows a dictator... well, there's a tendency to replace one dictator for a worse, but dang. Also, hot Palm and ladies' man Gon I didn't expect.

Also, I kept getting not only Gon x Palm vibes, but if I didn't know any better, maybe even Gon x Killua. >.> Killua reminded me of Lan stalking Madoka in Lagrange. That made me laugh.

Also, they really need to get rid of those bastard roaming ants.

You can't really call Meruem a dictator. I mean he treats humans like cattle. That's not what a dictator does.

Seems like the King has an interesting power.
Great for him, but not so good for the hunters.
Looks like he King found himself a palace as well.
Things are not going well...
There will probably be a lot more victims before he's stopped.
Palm-Gon relationship took a weird turn ^^"
I was surprised how calmly and naturally he dealt with her.

The episode was epic. Funny! Palm has changed drastically. Is that even Palm.
Killua was a stalker. And Gon's "secret" was very suprising... Their scenes were cute though.

And so, the king will grow more powerful at the end.

Ladies Love Cool Gon = LLCoolG

If anyone knows of the French cartoon Wakfu, Gon and the main character Yugo are separated from birth

So the King has a castle now. Gon being a ladies man was surprising, but somehow it fits him. Palm should always look like that! Killua really is tormenting himself, wonder how he'll fare against Rammot. For a second i though the newscaster was an ant-soldier. Nice to hear the Knuckle and Shoot captured Kite, though Knuckle being nice again and Gon thinking Kite would be fine. Maybe there's a nen that can revive the dead.
