I wonder if Youpi thinks his two fellow Royal Gurads are losing their minds. LOL!

Great character development for the King. But leave it to Togashi to do anything. The guy has like god like writing skills.

Same here lol.
What is it even doing there?

Other than that, just love the human conflict in the king. So good. He was like "i can kill her when i want" then he sees the hawk attacking her, and he defends her so quickly.

All this conflict because King doesn't understand he's a lolicon.

Well, it is an open palace by the looks of it, so it isn't too much of a stretch.

That did seem like a ridiculously random eagle attack. I mean yeah sure we saw one in the vicinity during the King's freakout, but would one really fly in just to attack a person? No matter how small Komugi is you aren't carrying that back to the nest . Seemed really random, but for the need to show the King's development so it worked.

What's the matter with eagle?

btw I think that Togashi brought that idea from the city crow of Tokyo.
They attacks people sometimes.

Reading the manga chapters and it shows an eagle leaving its perch just after the King's burst of Nen, so maybe that had something to do with it. I think there was also a hawk near Netero at once that reacted to his Nen too.

Wouldn't a hawk scared off by that nen outburst fly away from the area, not skulk around looking for people to randomly attack . Not a great survival instinct by that one. Maybe just driven crazy or something.

In the end did need something to help create a dramatic realization for the King, but you could have had literally anything attacking the girl and it would have been just as random. For some reason living ice cream cones attacking Komugi comes to mind .

I assumed it was driven crazy by the King's aura. They specifically showed it beforehand. Was kinda random though.

I do agree that the eagle is pretty random. But the thing is, if I remembered correctly, in the manga it's not exactly an eagle, it was an eagle-sized black bird attacking Komugi. So I assumed it's a Hunter x Hunter world's bird of prey who got riled up by the King's violent Nen or something. And the weakest prey in the whole palace is probably Komugi.

Crying moe girls are the last line of defense against the King's rampage! Is brute force truly the means to the end, or is there more to it. It just kinda shows we always want more things than we already have and even with all the power in the world, the Ant King sees something he cannot have and it's just killing him. It does seem like the unattainable is quite the thing to obsess over.

Meanwhile, Mr. Sparkly Violin Tears guy is pretty annoyed he's been ignored as he's not as intresting as Neferpitou and Komugi has the king's intention. Chances are he's going to go yandere soon.

And as the Hunter team prepares, the King ponders "Who am I?" Great episode as usual.

I suppose if you think about, the eagle doesn't make much sense but I still thought it was a hilarious twist for Mel's character (and in an episode that already had two hilarious twists). I can't imagine it's a coincidence that almost every line Komugi and him were giving seemed something out of an awkward high school romance.

I'm at the point now where I'm thinking it almost isn't fair for a series to be this good for this long. No one should be allowed to hoard so much awesome.

From what I remember in the manga, the bird was also random. I kinda agree it was weird seeing it fly throughout the episode, but I actually liked the scenario that it was rattled by the King's Nen and attacked Komogi as a result.
