wow, just wow.
I was just going to mention, since each successive round is supposed to cut the number of candidates in half right? then how could Leorio come out of the blue like that.
But I guess it makes sense if his name is that Ick... name. Also, how has Gon been still getting a chance to be an acceptable candidate if he only has 1 vote each election?
One last question, since we can't see all the names, as it says XXnumber with 2 votes and such, has Ging been eliminated or is he still getting votes?
after looking at the pictures it is kind of odd that Ging is at the Zodiac meeting, since he hasn't attended one in a while, and its even more odd Leorio was able to walk in on it.(after thinking, I guess I had it wrong, Leorio punched him during this debate where I guess all the candidates had to be present)
The zodiacs are doing a debate, so Leorio speak up while they were speakin. By hitting ging, the others Hunter maybe thought that he was like strong or somethin, or that he was showing that the zodiacs just do not care about the others Hunters, So leorio get popularity by doing this, and because of that the get more votes.
Ah! I knew Leorio was the reinforcement type ;P
Since Leorio's surname was never revealed, we all got caught surprised. Such a sneaky job by Togashi.
Anyway, brilliant, to include Leorio and to buff him up like this, he needed it. Now it's only Gon left who seems to be the weakest of the initial four.
Yes, and like someone said, Leorio seem to be getting votes because of the punch he landed on Gin. This opens up the possibilities for great trash-talking and perhaps even fights amongst the candidates.
EDIT: "Heres a script of it, though it sounds fake but it might be strengthened by the pics. Though, remember how good the fakes looked from last weeks chapter."
It's not a fake, there's too much work to do that: reproducing Togashi's style which is not easy, and the backround drawings (HHQ and the car of the zoldiks), also the spoiler and the pictures are confirmed in RSF.
My guess is that it was planned by Ging to undermine Pariston's plan, presenting Leolio as a rebel among normal hunters, that'd push them to sympathize with him.
Also Leolio's family name is not Ikkshonpe, both names appear in the list of candidates.
Moderator message by: UrielSince the spoilers got everyone by surprise, I wont take any immediate action. BUT PLEASE AVOID ONE LINERS OR I'LL DESTROY YOUR ASS SO HARD THAT YOU WILL WISH YOU BE RAPED FIRST TO FEEL SOMETHING THERE.
Now that they got 97% of vote, only the first 16 can be elected
And, starting from now, every time someone doesn't win, the next round contestants will be halved.

I mean... he was absent at the last two reunion, and this time he comes back.
Having Leorio there and having him hitting Ging to show he's strong and get him popular is too much of a coincidence.
My question though is : Why?
Why would Ging want Leorio as the Boss...
Leorio has nothing special, as far as I'm concerned...
Leorio is an emission user. He can controlhis aura afterit has seperated from him. What i guess he did was send his fist through the phone while talking to Ging. I can also guess the reason for him being in the top 3 is beause he had the guts to hit one of the zodiacs.
Is it just me or does it look like in the pics that Leorio's fist is going through the table and punching Ging?
It kinda reminds me of Nico Robin's abilities in a way. Unless of course I'm looking at it wrong.
^gotta fear uriel and his worst-than-but-rape mod retaliation lol
Anyways, I do think the ability leorio showed is emission. From what we saw it seems the fist is not coming directly from leorio but rather some other thingy. If that other thing is not directly connected to leorio and it is not a physical object made of nen then it must necessarily be emitted. I would think it requires a bit of transformation to make it have a hand shape and manipulation to make it punch and emission to maintain its power. It could be quite hax depending on the use leorio gives it. It is particularly suprising that leorio actually got a hit on one of the 5 most powerful nen users according to netero.
As for leorio being a main candidate, I guess that would be gings doing. I have no clue of what he could have done to get leorio that many votes without cheating though. Perhaps gin is colluding with a number of hunters to vote for a random guy only to then take pariston by surprise, that would make a decent bit of sense. In the end pariston does not have more than half the votes so if ging manages to make several groups of hunters voting for random people he could easily surprise pariston. Odds are ging already selected who he wants to be the president in a way lol or at least at some point it might just be his choice (at which point he will tell everyone to just vote for whoever they want lol).
Guys, I really do think so far this is just a comedian thinking of Leorio to express his anger towards Gin. I mean, that would be the best explanation with all I've seen so far (but I admit it can turnout to be true). However, it seems as if Leorio is angry at everyone, he's screaming towards Killua's butlers on the phone. He seems entirely outraged by everything he's seeing around Gon.
But I really will wait until that image is really Leorio punching Gin. Although that seems like the debate open for the voters, Leorio would really get a huge vote increase if he just punched Gin.
