I can't add anything... A flawless episode. 10/10
Is it true that there's no episode next week? =O
official website says.
Crunchyroll has it listed as airing next week. But can't dispute the official website.

And Squala bite the dust...I knew it would happen but I do feel sorry for him and Eliza.
I never really understood why Melody would help Kurapika.You are talking about the troupe that wiped out 2000 people, what would motivate Melody to help capture one of them? She doesn't even know kurapika that long unlike gon and co.
Overall, a pretty good episode.
what happened, why is this place so dead? D:
anyway, great episode. Gave me the chills when Chrollo says "Go" and you know shit is about to get real.
And seriously, can Nobunaga get any more badass? I honestly didn't care for him before the anime but MH is doing such an excellent job of portraying him
Argh damnit I want Togashi to return now and continue the story. I'm excited for the new world but I definitely need some new Kurapika vs. Spiders action
Get used to this delay folks. When you get a job, you enter a new era in your life. An era that kills your eternal free time.
I'm still in the writing process. Finished watching the new episode and now I'm watching the old version which will take some time due to the filler, and I have another appointment later on so don't expect my comparison to be up for a while.
So guys. I'm really at a lost for words here. The best way i can describe this is, it should be freaking ILLEGAL to be THIS epic. Like wow, 23 minutes felt like 6 minutes. I felt like i was watching a mainstream shounen version of Death Note. No real action, but everything was just so intense. Times like this that tempt me to go ahead and read the manga, but if i do that i'll spoil the anime for myself It's like i'm fighting myself. My will-power vs my excitement. I'm actually worried about my enjoyment for the future of this series now, because this Troupe Arc has set the bar for this series pretty damn high. I have no idea how Togashi plans to outdo himself with THIS on his plate. Masterpiece is the closest word that comes to describing it.
Now about the episode: Squala NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! Why does the black guy always have to die?!?!?! Just when i was starting to like him i especially feel bad for his girl. About his death though... even as a non manga reader i could tell something was censored about that scene. Will MADHOUSE ever be able to show straight up decapitation? I know a morning slot and all, but how are you gonna take the most violent manga in JUMP and give it a kids time slot? Instead of prime time like Magi or Naruto? Well, granted HxH is a long runner and Magi's time slot is practically legendary, not easy to get, but i'm sure MADHOUSE could have found SOME kind of Prime Time slot. Also, nice choice of outfit Kurapika -.- not like people weren't already questioning your sexuality. Oh Togashi... Also, am i the only one who feels Leorio keeps being put on the back burner? Even my friend who i got into HxH whose completely new to it like me (only i have more background knowledge about it should as Togashi's hiatuses and the original anime and it's changes etc etc) thinks Leorios just kinda....there. He's not really doing anything. Madhouse. Y U No Let Leorio Shine?! Even Kuwabara did more than this! Well, actually Kuwabara did a crap load of stop so that's a bad comparison, but still. I wonder if Hisoka is gonna help Gon and Killua. Hmmm. So many questions but a 7 day wait UGH. It's torture!
Finally, i realize now that MADHOUSE has some kind of Depature fetish, but it's been way more than 26 episodes, why hasn't Hunting For Your Dream changed? Granted, i love the song unlike Depature. It always makes the ending THAT much more suspenseful, but still...you're breaking the balance here MADHOUSE. It's been more than 26 episodes...
this December I think Reason is the new ED... and their selling new OST...

Squala's death in the manga made me sad, and the same is the case here. Out of the bodyguards, his death hit me the hardest. In any case, this was an excellent episode, and I don't have anything to criticize.
And yeah, MH is doing an exceptional job with Nobunaga. I never payed too much attention to him prior to this adaptation.
Here's hoping they show epic Leorio in the upcoming episodes.

This is why I love that MH has done a bit more in introducing some characters...To have grief in their deaths.
Excellent death. I loved mostly the voice in that moment, felt so...passionate, and honest.

Plus it's kind of hard to fit all of Yorkshin within 26 episodes, unlike the Hunter Exam and Zoldyck arcs. I'm guessing MH wants to be really organized and only change their songs at the beginning of a new story.
