So, who let Kurapika take the wheel? Shouldn't there be a "don't restrain one of the deadliest men in the world and drive" law?

Shadow Beats of the Mafia vs Phantom Troupe.
That Uvo is one scary guy!
It was awesome watching him fight.
Kurapika almost lost it there, but rushing in would just probably get him killed.
He's lucky the short guy managed to calm him down.
Looks like Kurapika has some interesting powers himself.

Re: Chain Jail

There's a bit of a duality concerning the restrictions people place on their abilities. The restriction itself (only using it on Spiders) wouldn't make it THAT much powerful. Putting his life on the line if he fails to uphold the restriction does increase its power by a noticeable amount, but there is an additional power boost coming from his conviction. You see, conviction and determination also has an effect on the power of an ability. The ability becomes powerful enough to keep in check one of the strongest Enhancers alive because his willingness to put his life on the line is proof of the fact that he WILL capture the Spiders, no matter the cost. This is why the ability is this powerful.


Re: Big Bang Impact

Yeah, it's basically a straight punch. But an explosion of this magnitude is nigh impossible to achieve, even for a master Enhancer. This just goes to show what kind of monster Uvogin actually is. It's my belief that the power is further fueled by the joy he takes in killing people with his bare hands, and his dedication to becoming the strongest physical fighter in the world (and he already is one of the strongest physical fighters).

Is that actually true? Maybe they're both fujoshi.
What does fujoshi mean?

This ep once again reinforces the notion of how battles are played out in HxH. Here, just like Hisoka in the Hisoka vs Gon battle, Uvo, though paralyzed, used his wits and surroundings to overcome the fight(though in Hisoka's case, using his wits and deception was not necessary), which is generally VERY rare for straight brawn-fighting guys like Uvo seems to be. I was very impressed =03.

Kurapika being badass again.

I like him more than Gon even though Gon seems to be the main character. Gon is just a standard stubborn shonen protagonist.

Gon is much more of a psycho than Killua. Kurapika is the standard 'dark past' shounen character. He is the character from which Sasuke was born (though Sasuke also took on a lot of Killua's characteristics).

Gon, however, is a Goku that is made into an actual 3D character that creep the fuck out of everyone he meet- either that, or win them over (or both).

Killua is far more straight forward. He'll kill people, and he's up front about it.
Gon, on the other hand, acts "innocent" while being perfectly willing to snap an man's wrists with a smile, threaten to electrocute someone to death, and make them pass out in utter terror.

I don't think that he's actually killed anyone yet, but I've gotten far more "holy ****" moments from him than Killua. At least the people Killua has killed have (probably) deserved it.


Though I think it's only fitting how ****ed up the Phantom Troupe are, given how much carnage occured during the Hunter exam, and the people running that were, basically, the good guys. If the "good guys" were willing to do stuff that messed up, it makes sense for the actual villains to be far, far worse.

I think I put this quite nicely a couple dozens of pages ago in my reply to the episode where he crushes Top Guy's peg leg:

I won't deny that Killua is the scary one. However, Gon is the dangerous one. This main difference between the two will be showing more and more as the story progresses.

Also, and this is based solely off this anime information, Killua is scary, but *wants* to be different.

Gon starts off really quite innocent, but is finding out the darker sides of himself (the parts that, for example, can be terrified by something, yet also find them strangely exciting). "Darker" may be overstating it a little, but I can't think of a better adjective right now.

In some ways, though, I can see Gon doing a lot more damage simply because he's less aware of himself and his differences from others. Killua is nothing but aware of those differences, but wants to join the larger world and fit in.
