Yunju and Rammot
^like always, waiting for VAs
I like Rammot color scheme. Green hair <3
Yah it does diminish Kite and Gon's relationship when they didn't recognize each other from their first meeting. I also miss Gon's relationship with the bear as well, those were my favorite moments from the manga.
Although from a production point of view, it sorta makes sense for Madhouse to not introduce a character for the 1st episode, and have him show up again 70+ episodes after.
And i've always find it weird that in the manga, Kite realize Gon is Ging's son just by a "determined look" that Gon gave him. (Are there no other stubborn kids in the Hunter universe?)
Take the good with the bad i suppose.
1. So Gon still doesn't find him at that point
2. Mentor under Kite for the time being
With 78, Gon's determination to be with Kite is pretty rock solid now since he feels he owes it not only to Kite (Being saved on Whale Island) but Ging also who from Gon's perspective seems to have orchestrated this grand plan of his development as a Hunter. As this adaption has been stressing, when Gon sets his mind on something he intends to see it through to the end no matter the consequences because his pride won't let him otherwise which is emphasized as one of Gon's tragic flaws if we're name-calling literary devices
I'm pretty satisfied regarding Gon and Kite in this anime now; we just have to see things play out and enjoy the arc

I guess what's special about Kite and Gon's relationship in the manga was that Kite was Gon's first glimpse to the outside / Hunter world. Kite was the first person to tell Gon about his father, and started Gon on his path towards being a hunter and looking for his dad. Kite is essentially Gon's first mentor, and it is that relationship that is lost in the anime, which played a heavy influence on some of Gon's decisions later on in the ant arch.
But like you said, Madhouse made enough alterations to re-establish their relationship in a another way, and we'll see how it plays out.

I definitely feel that Gon's determination is evident an strongly conveyed in Madhouse's adaptation.
Gon owes it to both Kite and Ging to give it his all.
Kite saved him and earned the respect of his father Ging.
Letting down Kite equates to letting down Ging.
I love the way this is being handled.
With that 78th episode.Isn't HXH the longest anime made by MH?(If we don't consider Hajime no Ippo New Challenger)
Yawara! with 124 episodes. It's the adaption of a manga by Naoki Urasawa, I'm sure that name rings a bell At second place probably would be Azuki-chan with 117 episodes. If you want to consider shorts, then there's Chi's Sweet Home too, with 104 episodes and a 104 episodes long sequel (so in a sense the longest, if you ignore that each episode is only about 3 minutes long). I think those are the only series with more than 100 episodes Madhouse ever made.
So yep, still a long way to go until it becomes the longest So to become the longest-running anime of Madhouse (if you ignore Chi) Hunter x Hunter still needs another 47 episodes. Absolutely not unlikely though, if you ask me. If they really go all they way to where the manga is right now, we should most likely get more than the required episodes, especially if you consider that their pace seems to be a lot slower now (granted they won't be able to maintain that low speed at certain parts but I'm confident we still have at least around 50 episodes left to reach the current point of the manga).

good no delay in the next five episodes
here the titles and the staff working on them
and don't try to translate it using google
I think this episode covered 1 chapter worth of material but I honestly don't care since I like seeing alot of this stuff fleshed out. So overall another solid episode. Yunju and his squad should be named "Team Fuck Shit Up"
Loved this episode, really loving the deeper look at Gyro's army. Anyone else notice the two soldiers at the end?
Mr Eyebrows and his good friend Zaquail? aka.
Not only did we see them, we also saw GYRO, holy fuck!!
I am psyched beyond words. Also I enjoyed the extra bits with Koala-Ant. Especially the foreshadowing of him looking at
