It seems that any attempt to defend Gon's strength or intelligence is often reflexively viewed as an attack on Killua. It's a very strange phenomenon.

^ ehehe

anyway the way I see it , both of them are playing to win. And yes Killua is very observant as he is in fact trained since probably birth to be an assassin.

Gon on the other Hand, (just like his dad) is in far above average in the mental department, as this is shown time and again in the innovative ways he solves their predicaments. I think some people were derailed with his happy-go-lucky, risk taking attitude, and apparent non caring of certain "common sense", equating it with low mental aptitude. Gon too has been presented as someone who has unbelievable power of observation, it is one of his strengths ( remember that fight/test with the Guides before the hunter exam?)

So all in all I believe both would have scored high, probably 1 - 2,
Killua : disadvantage
-he went out to do the hunter exam.
-would focus more on strategic & fighting points. less on game story trivia
advantage
- has experience with RPGs and their mechanics
- good power of observation
Gon : disadvantage
- first time playing RPG
advantage
- good power of observation
- fully immersed in the story, therefore observing as much as possible.


well there could be more ad-dis ads for each but I think that's the most important ones.

76 was pretty much an exposition episode. Ging has tricked Gon once again; for some reason he didn't want Gon to bring his friends along (apparently he's shy, but that doesn't seem to reconcile with all the friends he seems to have made...)

I'm noticing a unique tone from this arc that seems quite different from those that preceded it. The 'queen' seems likely to somehow be related to the ants that attacked Killua.

Also, art quality kind of dipped. Hopefully that's just due to it being a low-key, background information type of episode. The last few episodes were magnificently animated, so it's a tough act to follow.

He seems to have misjudged Gon. He thought if Gon brought someone else to meet him, it would mean he was gutless, but the reason Gon brought Killua along is not that he wasn't ready to face her father alone; he just wanted to introduce his best friend ever to him.

Ultimately, Gon and Gin are pretty different. It seems that, for all his friends, Gin never had a real friend, someone really close to him.

Actually I think he was lying about that part. It seems more to me he doesn't want Gon to be all "meet my awesome dad" because he really doesn't think of himself as that awesome.


Anyways, I'm just totally psyched that we finally got to this point. This is where all the fun starts. (where the fun ended the last time)

the episode was kinda meh, even the animation took a downturn, i hope the dire status of index dont end up affecting the quality of this anime, also the op is more off than it ever been, but i expect a good MAD with "guren no yuuya" as its the trend right now, the ED dont fall behind the op, wich is quite funny since "just awake" would had been a much better fit for this arc, specially after watchong the video of the song.

So no Ging after all.
I guess that was to be expected.
Well, at least we're one step closer to him through Kite.
It was nice to see some new info.
Those Chimera Ant look like trouble though.

Like if the kitten is a female instead of a male?

However, its great to bring a classic character design back from the past that looks slightly like cell and frieza combined.

I figured it was still too early for Gon to meet his father so it turning out to be someone else wasn't all that surprising. Not the most gripping introduction and Kite's story turned out to be pretty standard affair. Unlike the previous arcs that have generally followed from one another pretty smoothly, it seems like this one is starting off from scratch so it might be a bit difficult for me to get into like it was at the start of the show. Here's hoping Chimera Ant's arc will prove to be every bit as exciting as everyone keeps saying it is.

Is there a difference between the two? They sound the same to me.

It was supposed to be smooth but it had a huge amount of fillers and problems around it(because MADHOUSE screwed up).

I won't say it was well done or anything. But there are more important things which they coul've screwed up and didn't. Nobody's perfect.
