Episode 10.2 – 98% of the Zoldyck family problems could be solved by talking to each other and then hugging it out.

Chapter 322 discussion runs a bit long, so here you have it in its entirety, and non-manga listeners can avoid being spoiled. Everyone else, you know the rules, spoilers for the whole series.


Download Episode 10.2
Bullet Beast accurately predicts Alluka’s ability as we know it so far in chapter 323 by comparing him/her to Neon Nostrade and her (former) Ghostwriter ability.

Ghost Rider

By the way, this episode has very minimal editing, but there shouldn’t be any major issues. We also take some time to talk about our disappointments with some directorial choices in the anime series so far, namely the censorship and the damage to Killua’s character as it stands 5 episodes in. We talk a bit about some other mature series MADHOUSE has handled lately, namely the Hellsing OVAs (itself a truer to the manga adaptation rather than the TV series like Hunter X Hunter 2011) and mention Black Lagoon in passing.

    Yikes, over four hours total. This is turning into an unpaid part-time job for you guys.
    Enjoyed it a lot, thanks. 🙂

    Glad I’m not the only one who’d like to see Leorio return, a meaner, leaner Nen-machine than he was before. But I also agree that we may have reached our character quota for this arc.

    As for my own predictions, I think that one of these two plots (Alluka or Pariston) is going to go horribly wrong. Personally, I think Pariston is going to get the job. There doesn’t seem anything anyone can do about it. (Unless the Panda explodes or something)

    As for the Alluka plot-line, I see that spiraling into something bigger. They keep repeating how they have no idea where he “comes from”. Kikyoo’s Hellgate vagina being the obvious but ignored answer, there has to be something else going on, and I’m not sure it’s Nen-related. Whatever it is, Killua knows, and since he’s the only one who calls him “little sister”, it’s going to clear up all this gender crap as well. About time.

      Where does Alluka “come from” ?

      You mean you haven’t figured this out yet ?

      Think about it : Except for Killua, all the Zoldyck kids have black hair.

      Now, who do we know in the HxH universe who has black hair, could easily sneak into Kukuroo mountain, and who’s a total bastard ? 🙂

      (Okay, I’m kidding, but that would be sooo awesome)

    damedrfoxybrown :
    Don’t forget that we’re recording tonight if you guys have any questions.

    Well, you guys tend to answer my questions in the show before I’ve thought of them, but yeah, I’ve been wondering…

    The reason I’m a fan of HxH is because I always thought it had something unique, something that puts it in a different class from all the other stuff in the same genre.
    Maybe it’s the strange mix of characters that still seems to work, the way each new arc is like a whole different show, or how HxH has more strong character moments in a single chapter than most shows in their whole season. I just know I enjoy this show, the manga, and the characters so much more than all the others.

    So I was wondering, am I just kidding myself here ? Is Togashi just some hack who writes himself into a corner, and then bullshits himself out of it again ? Are there hundreds of manga out there just as good that I simply haven’t read yet ? Or is it really as unique as I’m convinced it is ?

    • snowylocks Says:

      It’s unique in many ways. For example, I don’t know of any other still running, halfway popular shounen fighting show that never got a movie.

    He does like to love ’em and leave ’em….

    And Silva always seems to take his dad on missions, leaving Kikyoo all by her lonesome…

    It’ll probably turn out to be some kind of demon possession thingy, but yeah, this would be way more entertaining, lol.

  4. snowylocks Says:

    I’m in a sarcastic mood, so I’m going to come right out and ask what you guys think the next thing might be that the new anime people are going to fuck up.

    Or just the next thing that’s going to change color. I just remembered that mister Beans used to be pink. Somehow, that was disturbing.

    Also, I propose a drinking game for the next new anime episode. Every time Killua smiles, you take a shot of Tequila. See you guys in the hospital. 🙂

    Lol, you’re just trying to kill them now. Cut it out. 🙂

    Simpler question : Which one of the Zodiac Hunters will be the first one to totally lose their shit and go postal on Pariston ? My Jennies are on Dog Girl.

  6. Another good episode, I must agree that the censorship has really disappointing so far. While I love the ecosystem, one has to wonder what all these pants and animals do when there are blue hordes of humans to kill. I have a crazy theory regarding killua’s brother who joined the spiders. What if after learning what dancho’s power is he has gone to find him and have dancho steal alluka’s power, assuming that it its nen based of course.

    Just had a peek at the raws for 324.

    Me not spoiling this is taking pretty much all the willpower I have.

    Man, I love the Zoldycks. They should get their own series.

    • snowylocks Says:

      Omg !!! Angry clown !
      And that’s whatsherface, right ? Hey, you speak nihongo, dontcha ? Mail me the translation ? Pretty please ?

      • jestertill Says:

        Scary, eh ? 🙂
        And yeah, that’s her. And him. Nice to see both of them again.

        Snowy, it’s almost 3 am where you are. Go to sleep. Full translation should be up tomorrow (your time).
