Something I can't understand is how there is not a single decent writer in anime working on anime-original episodes of long running series. One would expect it to be the kind of task you'd give to rookies and youngsters, so you should get the occasional genius waiting to happen who delivers a great job. Instead they're consistently shit.
Saying all filler arcs are consistently shit is going a bit far. Certainly some of them are, but I've seen a few good ones.

Well, I could name some less awful than others, but I don't remember any which were really good - definitely not any long arcs. The best exceptions I can name are small detours like the battleship filler episode during the Hunter exam arc in the first HXH anime, the comedic omake episode 101 of Naruto, or One Piece's G8 arc. Other than that, any single filler arc I can remember from Dragonball, Naruto, or Bleach was straight out terrible (with a mild exception for some early parts of Bleach's Zanpakuto Rebellion arc - but then again, the early parts are easy, it's resolving the plot that's hard). Maybe I haven't had any luck though, and other anime have better filler.

There's some historical reason to hope that Togashi has in fact been writing the new arc all this time, and plans to announce his hiatus is over when he's so far ahead that he figures he can finish that arc without going on hiatus again. I think that means more for the future of the manga than this anime, which will be lucky to get the 50-ish episodes it needs to finish Chimera Ant, but it is at least a hope.

If togashi would start writing for the anime, that would be great , but i dont see that happening, even less after the timeslot change, im not even sure the next arc its gonna be adapted, but at the very least they should omit the cliffhanger for anime-only viewers, like that it could work as an end.

I'm not as pessimistic as you guys are. I think they'll adapt everything up to the latest chapter of the manga, which works as a decent ending to the series.

Do we know how HxH is doing in its new timeslot yet? I'm expecting a big drop of course, but not one so bad the series will have to get canceled. HxH has a strong fanbase.

Killua & that octopus were LOL
Well, the octopus was pretty funny with its surprised reactions.
It completely sucks getting on Killua's bad side..
The darts game was very cruel and made me feel uneasy.
On the positive side, things did turn out unexpectedly, but also good.
I like the idea that more and more chimera ants are switching sides.

This episode would have totally traumatized countless little kids if it had been shown unaltered on a Sunday morning. Even I found it painful to watch.

Really? It's not like anything bad or super violent happened this ep.

I had been looking forward to this fight. The Ortho sibling's nen power is one of my favorite, since it's one of the most "Jojo-esque". It's incredibly hard to counter unless you're as smart and badass as Killua.

Killua's death scene was very well done. I felt really sad for him. Thankfully, he'll live to fight another day.

It's weird when Killua's scene happen at day, then Gon's scene, which is inserted in the middle of the episode, happens at night...

It's a completely broken power. It's impossible to counter unless you happen to know the rules of darts, no matter how smart you are. Or, I don't know, have some kind of invincibility that allows you to survive a dart to the brain.

Yeah once that badge gets stuck on you, there is little you can possibly do. Other than take numerous stab wounds with an eventual headshot. I mean maybe if you have some way to track their position and then force them to miss then maybe it could work. But then you are trying not to not fall over from random stabbing injuries so even that would be difficult. Really not much you can do other than not let it activate or pray the guy who has a darts ability misses his last shot...

Or you can just not get tagged by the badge in the first place. In that sense you could think of it as a very complicated "one-touch kill" that you have to avoid from the very beginning.

Yeah, that's because Gon was supposed to meet Meleoron only after Killua's fight, but the anime rearranged the order of the events.

Do the darts somehow negate a nen-reinforced body?

If not then I'm sure a strong, tough as nails reinforcement user would just shrug off the damage and wreck the area until he finds those two.

Hard to say, but even a reinforcement user would have trouble being tough everywhere, all the time. So unless he can guess where the next dart's going to hit (and even Killua could only guess the last one), he's going to get punctured.
