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.
The scary part about Gon isn't that he is discovering darker parts of himself, it's that his good parts are the same as the scary parts. He is whole on his opinions/actions, and that's scary as shit.

Ah, yeah, that's a better way of putting it. I was trying to get at the same idea (I think), but from the point of the view of the audience. So maybe it would have been better if I'd said that the audience is getting a better idea of what his full personality entails. And really, it makes sense--I mean, most of us are a mixed bag, and very frequently, the better parts are inextricably linked the less desirable ones.

But without knowing more of the plot to come, it's hard for me to say for sure beyond just speculation. Anyway, I'm really excited for the next parts...

Gon is an eyesore who should be removed from the show altogether. Finally finished watching all the old stuff and there are not enough words to describe how much I want the guy to suffer -_-
His selfishness and idiocy has no boundaries.

Will finally start 2011 version. Looks like my fave arc is up now, go Kurapika!

The old anime didn't really "get" Gon's character. They made him a bit more generic and played up his innocent insight a bit much. Killua was also a bit more generic. I think Kurapica was the only character that the extra characterization in the first anime did much justice to.

I'm back from my vacation. But since I'm still tired I'll watch the episode tomorrow and hopefully give you my thoughts in the same day.

It's the show viewership rating for the week. 4.0 is pretty damned nice.

I thought it was already established that as far as the actual TV ratings are concerned, HxH was like the greatest thing since sliced bread and One Piece. (slightly exaggerated, I mean it was doing pretty well for itself)

Not necessairly, the ratings have been kinda mixed for it's timeslot. Although since it's definently going past that initial 45 episode count and we're getting a movie it's doing pretty well for itself. Hopefully by the time we get to later arcs the ratings will be more consistent/
