Just to add to the Gon discussion, I didn't really like him that much and thought also thought he had a lot of main character plot armor and focus, but after watching him actually work hard to get Hisoka's badge, I started liking him a lot more. I still don't think he's brilliant though. Personally the character I most sympathise with is Leorio so it's a massive pain in the ass when he's made out to be the butt monkey of the group, and the few genuine achievements he shows is always ruined somehow. Kurapica is a character I'd usually like the most if this was a proper action shonen but since it's not...

This was just from Gittrackur being listed as "Illumi Zoldyck" in the credits!

Truthfully, when I saw him for the first time in badge hunting episode, I thought it was a girl =/

Wow, THANK GOD. It was very good. This was the pivotal scene centred on Killua, if they screwed this up I would have probably dropped it.

They didn't censure Killua killing the old man too, another plus for me. Now....finally the exam hunter is over and it's time for more awesomeness.

Since Killua jumped in and helped Leorio, shouldn't Leorio have been disqualified
too?

Remember that Gon would've been disqualified if Leorio and Kurapika had jumped in
to help him against Hanzo.

He didn't do it to help Leorio, though.

There is 2 groups.
(After the ninja lost to Gon > Hisoka fought with Kurapika >than the ninja guy fought with the hunter.)

Killua is in group 1 while Leorio is in group 2.

The rule is: You kill someone, you are disqualified, everyone else passes.

Yeah, but it had already been narrowed down a lot. By the time of Leorio's fight with Bodoro, there had already been 6 contestants who'd won (Gon, Hanzo, Pokkle, Kurapica, Hisoka, Illumi). So whoever lost would have had to fight Killua next, in the final match.

Wow! To be honest, this episode was kinda great actually. The music was great, and I like this anime's take on the Illumi character. I like how his face remains straight while his voice is full of emotion.

Anybody else felt like calling bullshit on Satotsu's spiel about having exams because of people with bad intentions wanting to be Hunters? Because, how does the exam address that issue? I'm sure nice guys have died, while Hisoka and Illumi - who as much as straight out said they wanted the license to more conveniently kill people - passed. When were intentions ever gauged? Before the exam proper... sort of (what with the guides and stuff). But we only saw a bit of that.

And with that, the hunter exam arc is at its end. RIP hunter exam arc (eps 2 through 20).

"Hunter Potential" as judged by the selection committee: (this list is brought to you by my obsession with power levels)

Most:
Gon
Hanzo
Hisoka
Kurapika

2nd Most:
Pokkle
Bodoro

3rd Most:
Killua
Leorio

Least:
Gittarackur (Illumi)

I think that is based on their chances on passing the final phase.

It's based more on personality than Power Levels.

It's a lot of things, and Pokkle did well at Trick Tower and the island exam. Way better than Leorio, for example... (And yeah, if it was power, Illumi would be right at the top with Hisoka.)
