That little piece of animation was quite amazing. Madhouse is really doing a terrific job on this show. I can't think of many long-running anime that are as well animated as HxH.

Nope, the "Great Leader" isn't a reference to any real life person in any way whatsoever

Interesting and fun new episode.
It was really cool watching those two fight fight the speed cat.
Gon & Killua seeing Kite again.
Poor guy, wtf happened to him...
It was just disturbing seeing him in that state.
Gon just keeps surprising me with his kind heart.

You mean, killed by a cannibalistic Eldritch abomination and then used as a puppet in its plans for humanity's total subjugation? As bad as it is, I still prefer him the way he is now .

Oh here's an interesting question. Do people honestly view chimera ants as Eldritch Abominations?

Personally I mostly referred to the King. Most ants are pretty ordinary monsters. But the King's really out of this world. He borders on a physical God.

His power is pretty ridiculous but personally he doesn't really give me an otherworldly vibe.

Ofcourse not. The circumstances of his birth have already been explained as scientifically possible in HxH world. It's only an Eldritch Abomination if its very existence is a huge mind fuck.

Well, yeah, I guess that's right if you consider Eldritch Abomination only something explicitly otherwordly. I was mostly thinking about his "alienness" (I mean, a DNA mashup insect-like monster who feeds on humans? Ehhhwww) and his freaky power (the comment about Netero not being strong enough to make it even past one of the guards, given the huge power gap between the guards and the King himself). Sometimes I've heard the term used in this broader sense.
But yeah, if by Eldritch Abomination you only think of stuff like Lovecraft's "Elder Gods", then it doesn't apply, definitely.

Yeahh... I don't think there's any doubt about this. None of these guys are really any match and these episodes are just showing off their abilities to the audience and nothing else.

Mind you, that's not necessarily a bad thing. I mean these guys are pretty much THE dark horses of the series.

Let's not forget that most of these ants are minor soldiers. They're not stronger than Rammot, and Killua took his head without sweating. Maybe the "queen" will put a half decent fight, since she was a captain if I remember correctly, but the rest are cannon fodder.

The queen also doesn't look tough to me.

I'd like to see their reaction to Neferpitou though,would be cool to see if they backed down or got excited.

It's a rather abrupt turn of events, 'out-of-nowhere" you could say, but still a worthy passage of time. I've always wanted to see what the Spiders could do, and York Shin/GI didn't even get a chance to show their real capabilities, aside from Chrollo of course. Another note, it seems that Calluta(sp?) has a bit of a sadistic side, given that she's just chopping off arms instead of going for the kill, like the rest of the Spiders.

Rammot probably didn't even have a nen ability, plus, he wasn't even a "vice-captain" or anything, just a grunt(unlike, say, Pike). Not to say they still aren't cannon fodder though =0p.

I thought the same thing, sad to say =01. Another Togashi jab perhaps?

I, too, wondered why they deviated from the manga order. Are they going by popularity perhaps?

To be honest, I was little bored by the episode since it seemed like pretty standard affair in itself. I would've been very surprised if those ants posed a genuine threat to the Troupe, and i don't care much for those particular Troupe members anyway, besides Killua's relative. I don't care much for those ants either considering we've seen a much bigger threat already. Oh well, gotta clear out the small fry some way. Wasn't as entertaining as Cheetu's fight though.

Nope

And it's Kalluto. I'm surprised he's got such mastery of nen given that his older brother Killua (the future heir) hadn't even heard of it until a few months ago. I guess their training were different.

Enjoyed that little Feitan segment before the ED. Didn't realize he was a fancy expert with the sword.
