  • Fired Up

    Gon and Killua do more training with Wing and learn more techniques of NEN. Finally Gon challenges Hisoka and gives him the place and time which they meet in the ring, Gon tries his hardest to land a blow until after awhile he finally does. After that he gives him his badge back from the hunters exam, Hisoka takes the badge back.
  • Gon never forgets a promise.

    This episode was chock full of surprises and determination. Gon was finally released from his 'grounding' and was able to start honing his Nen again, a central point to the upcoming plots. After just about a month, the boys have of course reached new levels that poor Zooci can only dream of. I continue to find this unrealistic, but it's working and only detracts from the simple minded purity of the series.

    That Hisoka allowed Gon to get a hit on him always confuses me, but then I remember Togashi is famous for the Younger Toguro of YYH, and everything makes sense again. Hisoka only wants Gon to grow so that he can beat him down. However, that Gon doesn't realize this is what makes the series what it is, and hence what makes this episode so special.

    I give it a 9.3/10.moreless
  • The long awaited confrontation.

    The begining of the episode reveals Hisoka allowing Kastro to hurt him badly, only to easily kill him in the fight.

    After the fight a woman named Machi comes to help Hisoka's wounds after a fee of course.

    The scene goes to 1 month later where Gon, killua, and Zushi continue to learn more about nen and its power.

    Hisoka calls Gon on the phone and says he will face Gon whenever he wants. Gon comes to a decision of the match time.

    The faited day arrives where Gon faces Hisoka. Gon tries his best to hit Hisoka with punches but soon realizes he can't hit him with a straight attack. So he uses the arena tile as a distraction and miraculously hits Hisoka in the faces. Gon then hands Hisoka's plate from the hunter exam over to Hisoka, a truely defining momment.

    The end made this episode truely great.moreless
