Yea, don't see why they didn't just transport the wife into the game, and use archangel breathe on her.

Its not like you need to be able to use Nen to enter the game. Its the game's Nen that's working on you.

Wasn't one of the conditions to get into the game channelling nen through the ring?

You do, you need to use Ren on the video-game console.

It's not anyone's nen in particular. Razor mentioned a while ago that he's "in charge of emission" on Greed Island, so while it's reasonable to assume that someone else is in charge of each of the other categories, it's also not true that Razor can freely teleport people around or whatever other emission spells exist in the game.

The way I see it, the game itself is a huge restriction placed on a nen ability, and obviously a huge restriction like "can only be used on this island by other people who may or may be against me who've knowingly chosen to risk their lives against other players to find and collect every spellcard from one particular shop that sells only random packs and then converts all of them into another card of which only three can exist at any time" is going to make the effect proportionally larger. I wouldn't be surprised if the guy "in charge of reinforcement" didn't have any healing abilities at all. It's more like they're all pooling their power into a shared "Greed Island" ability that wouldn't work without all of them and its own conditions.

Gon isn't insane, he's beyond insane and gar. That breath card is pretty awesome. Don't see why they needed to heal them ans none of them are in life threatening conditions. Nice that they got 99 cards now. Seems like Hisoka was meeting with that guy, wonder if they worked out a deal. Interesting way to get the 0 card.

Genthru took Gon's full punch to the gut. Gon's punch, which had been freaking everyone out in the volleyball game. I wouldn't be surprised if he was suffer massive internal hemorrhaging too. I see no reason not to take the character's word for it that not healing them would be equivalent to leaving them to die.

If he was as good as dead, then he sure as hell would have died before Gon actually got his fight finished.

He does not need to die right away; not all serious damage to the head lead to quick death. Some effects could take a while to be noticed and it would be too late by then.

I don't know whether Genthru managed to defend himself with aura, given how panicked he was. But knowing it's Gon (who doesn't have a killing intent), I believe he adjusted the power of his punch just enough to knock Genthru down.

Bara was crippled. His face was dented inward due to Bisky's punch. Surely nobody wants to spend the rest of his/her life like that.

Anyone took an interest in the GI tutorial at the end of episode? It's a bit surprising that Killua can be quite a pervert, lol

He didn't die, so he probably defended himself.

Doubtful. Gon lacks the experience to hold back that precisely, and he was pissed. Plus, the consequences if he missed would have been dire, and he did say he was done being selfish.

Yeah, at least Genthru must've activated ten or ken at default.

I was talking specifically about Gon's last punch. He stopped being selfish after he landed his kick (he felt satisfied since he managed to repay Genthru's ability, at the cost of his arm). He followed through the plan, marked by his "Osu" yell after he said he was done being selfish.

As demonstrated by the Spiders, you can reach the Greed Island via a boat. Pack her on one, and make Tsuzugera wait for the boat on the beach with a card ready - and while the GM is chit-chatting, use the delay to heal her. BTW, given that he actually asked something along the lines of "are you, by chance, victims of a shipwreck?" it is not impossible that he would've allowed to do it openly.

In the end, the fact that the billionaire didn't explain his motivations to the hunters he hired was his own undoing...

Was there a plausible reason why Bisky didn't fight Genthru instead of Gon? I mean besides from the shonen standard for Main Characters fighting the bad guy of the arc at the end?

Genthru's team had the initiative on who would fight whom. They assumed Gon was the leader because he's got the biggest mouth. (And the important cards...)

Both of those reasons could have been manipulated by Bisky to make her appear as the leader.

The anime seemed to de-emphasize this, but in the manga there was the implication that Genthru was accepting Gon's challenge from right after they finished the volleyball match. When Gon interrupted his Contact with Tsezuguerra. Killua and Biscuit's plans were structured around that challenge.

Maybe it seems a bit weird to think that Genthru would care about that so much, but then again he wasn't taking any of the kids seriously so he might have figured there was no reason not to.
