Funniest thing would be that he ends up dying from radiation poisoning, and not from the damage incurred.

Lol, funnier thing is that he will mutate into something even more hax.

If things indeed will go along this course, I would like to see the king make a choice between letting Pitou heal him and abbandon Komugi to death, or to have him (or her, is this ever confirmed?) healing Komugi at the cost of his own life. He has lived his life believing in violence and destruction, but it would be nice to let him finally realize that the greatest power is not destruction, but creation, the bestow of life.

With an arm and a leg off, the author seems to be placing Netero at death's feet.

By the way, is it me or are Biktopia's translations really off? Some sentences don't even make sense.

My guess is he's dead. The king lives. hunters retreat, a world war.

At this point, there are two possibilities, right? King dead, and soon afterwards, other hunters will kill the royal guards and other ants and prevail.
Or, King is alive, no one can beat the hax ants, and well, something like a war happens. Or who knows, maybe we will see some hax hunters too. The mangaka hasn't been exactly restrictive in special abilities recently

I prefer the former, but both doesn't sound good. I mean, King dying from a bombing was NOT what I had in mind at all. Which is why i think latter is more likely.

I think its rather certain that the king shall not die here. But what I'm interested about is how a near-death experience, and the experience with fear for the first time in his life, and finally knowing his name (and will probably finally consider himself as an unique individual, not just an abstract symbol of power - the king) will change the king's personality and his outlook to the world.

His character has such a huge potential to develop, and through the battle with Netero, he has gone through many great experiences. Togashi definitely must exploit that potential. Making him ever more brutal and power-hunger with a war is just too wasteful.

You believe the King will survive this arc? Honestly, Togashi has made it clear enough since the last chapters that the ants are, in the end, not human enough to fit in this world. The panels with Knuckle and Pufu made that abudantly clear I think.

Aside from my personal wish that the ant-arc be laid to rest I think Togashi will close of this arc pretty soon.

I wonder how the next arc will top the scale of these events. Netero died, and Gon will level up like crazy if he survives this.

Perhaps we're getting closer to a Gin arc after all

Spoilers are dodgy at the moment. The only sure thing we know is that, according to this pic, the king seems to be seriously wounded.



Spoilers go along the lines of the King whispering 'my name is Meruem'. Yupi and Pufu crying. Epic pic really.

Even though the titel of the chapter is 'Rebirth', I think it's metaphorical. Judging from the picture he might not even make it out of the underground base.

Edit:
I just read the raw and really one things come to mind:

What the fuck?

I'm not even going to try and explain it's weirdness without any translation. It was..wow..just wow..

Hmm..yes I did like that dynamism there. Perhaps we'll see him revived and...the possibilities are endless. A war possibility is not so off, in my opinion. Perhaps he'll want to realize a certain developed vision of his from this experience.

If that were true, then too bad.

Ha, so the king is alive and well (kinda) after all. This chapter was odd, like one of those odd chapters here and there throughout HxH. Though I guess we can assume the King is out of the fighting force, for now...

He's not going to lose his dynamic character and evolve into a simply hungry monster is he?

I couldn't stop laughing as I read this chapter.

Then I finished it and was just like... wait, what?

If he turns crazy, I would like to see the level of crazy as he reaps off his own arms and legs and eat them, and then can't stand eating anything else and die of hunger.

Crazy and sounds bullshit, but that's exactly why I like it.

Actually, that sounds very plausible
