I'm pretty sure the phantom troupe will appear soon. Theres no way in hell Togashi will put them off even longer. We barely saw them in the greed island arc, and they got a short amount of content defending Meteor City during the Chimera Ant arc... I'm sure Chrollo is interested in stealing something epic from the dark continent .... and the environment and amount of people that have died makes me thing the troupe would LOVE to venture there.
My thought about the queen is that she fled from the DC taking heavy damage to her body. I believe there are still some chimera ants on the DC but they are still normal ant size.
The reason why our Queen had to flee is because her swarm ate one of those Hunters from an earlier expedition (The Queen said at some point that she had Human DNA in her body).
After eating him their next generation turned out to be human sized or over many generations they got bigger and bigger because of that, but at some point they just were to big and fell more easily prey to the other creatures living there.
Becoming more human-like killed them on the Dark Continent.
I was just trying to think how would the planet be so the inhabitants of the known world can still have a perception of a 24 hrs day.
Making hours longer without people noticing?
¿Faster planetary rotation?
Maybe there's more than one sun.
The many suns theory could fit it. I dont't know about the faster movement... Also if the known continent is placed near the equator line, there wouldn't be a way to explain why the whole (known) world is always faced to the sun at the same time. It is more likely that it is placed near the poles.
Well, is there even proof that they are living on a planet? For instance, there are those giant worldtrees... if the planet rotates, wouldnt they knock away other planets or crush them?
So i believe its not a planet they are living on... its a plane. And maybe there are different layers and the worldtrees grow through them... but I guess all this is offtopic... no wait... I predict it will get revealed in the next chapter ^^
It is not offtopic. Imo it is a way to measure whether this DC arc is something well-thought beforehand or just a plot feature created to extend the story. Although I cant see a reason for him wanting to extend the story with his workrate
