basically after-math + prolog of election arc/rescue gon arc. this is actually double arc running simultaneouly at the same time.
im surprised they showed ging's face straight ahead, in manga ging appearance still mysterious
i hope next episode we'll see new opening animation and ending.

It's only right that an arc as morally complex, epic and fantastic as Chimera Ant get an episode fully dedicated to a coda. Needless to say this episode was excellent.

I would assume she ate his brain. Not like a meat puppet needs a brain to fight.

I didn't like Kite coming "back to life," and I especially didn't like him being reborn as a babyish young girl (especially when most ants were born as adults, morphologically speaking). Just ruined his sacrifice and his character in general... The thought of him living on is nice, but it just doesn't work character-wise or plot-wise for me.

Well, you had Reina and Hina just in this chapter. Not to mention that Kite was already born really premature and shown as a miniature newborn baby. No time for those fancy super growth hormones.

My assumption is that Kite was reborn as a child to take him/her out of the picture. The new Kite can be a symbol of hope and life going on, but no longer serves the mentor role he/she had while alive. Also, I think it's worth noting that Kite never made any kind of sacrifice. He made a poor choice and paid the consequences. It's just a standard risk of the job. Contrast, say, Netero who had a back-up plan specifically involving his own death.

In other news, I just realized that Ging will be voiced by Rikiya Koyama (well, he already was) and frankly that's sort of surreal.

Exactly. I thought FEELS time was over.... a surprise attack.

But I think the half concealed mystery of two girls called Reina is unsatisfactory.
Especially the girl who argues that my name is Kite... is unnecessary.
I've searched about that. Okay, I can understand now. But it wasn't good advanced hint, IMO.
Maybe Togashi took too much time to make this arc.
He was thinking too much. This is one of the harmful effects of that.

I don't see what's confusing about Kite. Like, a good half of the arc was spent talking about how the ants remembered their past lives to some extent. Why is it a surprise that Kite, who was killed by ants, would be reincarnated as an ant? Because his body itself was mostly intact? But the series has also emphasized that the brain is the only human organ that's especially "nutritious" to the ants, and common sense would imply that that's where memories lie anyway, if anywhere.

He didn't go into things expecting to sacrifice himself, but he basically did to allow Gon and Killua to escape.

Also, yeah, perfect VA for Ging.

Yeah except the queen never ate Kite. In fact we've seen his body still intact only a few episodes ago. And you must've remembered wrong. Because I've never heard of this "the brain is the only important part". Nor did they ever mention anything about removing Kite's brain and eating it.


There's also the matter that Kite is Meruem's twin sister, so should not even have any human memories TO remember.

Every ants could possibly have memories, some have and some don't. And Kite body wasn't intact, Pito cut his head and after she put it back.

As a manga reader: don't worry, there will be an explanation. I don't know if you'll consider it satisfying but it's definitely something no one has brought up yet.

Also, keep in mind that Kite's death was about Gon's mental journey, and the way Gon threw away his life for his own guilt.

Having Kite not being dead just makes Gon being reckless even /worse/, so it only increases the message.

Fucking quality. Does justice to the manga.

Already can't wait for the current arc to be animated.
