Convene Skill x Register x The Fight Begins
With Wing's training, Gon and Killua are able to pass Hisoka's barrier on the 200th floor. Hisoka informs Gon that he'll only fight him after Gon has won a match on this level. Gon is promptly challenged to a match by the top-spinning Gido. However, Gon is injured and quickly defeated by Gido's tops.moreless

  • Main Character Finally Shines

    Gon finally shines, wanting to fight immediately to test out his new power. LOL thats funny how he said that like power rangers or something. He goes to ring the next day and fights some guy that spin tops with his NEN. Gon gets repeately hit and figures out how to block his NEN so he can focus on the tops direction and manage to dodge em all. How long can he keep this up? Looking forward to the next episode.moreless
  • Gon's first 200th floor fight.

    The episode starts with Wing showing Gona dn Killua the basics of nen and "Unlocking" their nen so to speak. They end up excelling at nen use (Though they lack a few basics such as Ten)

    Gon and Killua sign up for the 200th floor. Despite Wing telling them to get 2 months of training from him before fighting, Gon defies him to see what he's up against.

    Gon is put up against Guido, a nen user who utilizes dangerous spinning tops as weapons. Gon starts out the fight being beaten up easily, but soon adapts to the fight and Guido's confusing methods Even using his Zetsu (Which is extremely dangerous) The episode ends with the spinning tops about to hit him.

    I liked this episode since we finally get to see some of nen's interesting capabilities here.moreless
  • Time for that main-character superness to make itself known.

    Until now, the main characters have been the regular, slightly above normal ability cliches, but this episode is when they really take that step up. That they're able to learn enough about Ten in an hour and a half never ceases to disappoint me, especially since the viewer doesn't get to see their struggle as they learn (likely because there wasn't a struggle). Gon's battle against Gido was somewhat lacking as well. There was no battle, Gido sucks at being a villain, and Gon learned far too much from a few seconds' worth of observation.

    I give this episode an 8.7/10.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Wing: (thinking about Gon and Killua)I never thought Nen could be learned so quickly. No. Those two are just very talented, It's extraordinary...(Sigh)I have a bad feeling about this.

    • Wing: Listen carefully! Think that you are containing the aura and try to keep an upright position. Close your eyes and position yourselves in a way that lets your easily visualize. Then concentrate your mind, and think that the aura is like the blood which flows through the body. Imagine that the aura flows from your head down to your right shoulder, to your hand then past through your feet and then to the left side! Then the flow will stop little by little, and in your mind appears an image of the aura floating around your body.

    • Hisoka: (To Gon) You only just learned Ten and you are so self-confident. The world of Nen is still beyond your comprehension.

    • Killua: (Thinking to himself as Wing is using Zetsu on Gon and himself) This is the feeling! An invisible expanded sensation is surrounding the body but separated from the skin. If he were to increase the intensity of this feeling by a million times, then it would change into that disgusting Nen that brother used.

    • Gon: I don't think I can win tomorrow, but it doesn't matter. I want to test my ability with Nen.

    • Wing: Slowly open your eyes. What do you feel?
      Gon: I feel like I'm surrounded by warm mucus.
      Killua: Like a warm pile of clothes without weight.

  • NOTES (3)


    • The series Beyblades focuses on top battles within an arena or ring. In this episode, Gido's style shows similar ideals, though Hunter x Hunter is drastically older. Beyblades might have gotten motivation from Hunter x Hunter.

    • The uppermost floors of the Heavens Arena are home to competitors who participate in something called the Olympic Games. This is quite possibly related to the competition held every four years in the real world.
