He looks just the same in the manga at that point.
I'm gonna be honest, I was really disappointed with this episode.
The King powering up and hunting down Knuckle and Meleoron was one of my favorite parts of this arc in the Manga. But Madhouse did a very lazy job with it. Not only was the animation for that scene kind of sluggish, but they also neglected the narration(most of it) which is what made it epic in the first place.
Aside from that, nothing interesting happened in this episode.

I have to admit this chapter didn't impact me that much in the manga, but I felt the tension here. I just really love the anime's adaptation of Meruem I guess. It wasn't a great animation day but I still got pretty tense knowing how impossibly weak our heroes are. That sense of what is going to happen at this point was still there for me, anime only viewers are in for quite the surprise in the next few weeks I think.
now that i have caught up with the manga, i can look at these episodes and give my opinion on the adaptation
honestly madhouse does a better job than anyone, you could literally FEEL the guilt , and subsequent relief from youpi and pouf when the king called them out for hiding something.
I thought the animation was nicely evened-out during this episode...is it just me?
Lets be serious here for a second. Theres almost no way an episode can compare to last week, with Netero vs Meruem being right behind it, but this episode wasnt really that bad. I watched 131 over 50 times, and I still had a good time watching this weeks episode. It was a bit slow, but I felt the same way about it when I read the manga.
Deemm feel, Youpi is dead, Meruem and Pufu next
Soo sad, before his dead ,The King must meet Komugi!

Fantastic, this episode might be one of my favorites in this arc, even if I don't know how many times I said this. Pouf's tactics and his anxiety , Welfin and his determination. RIP Youpi, his rape face was exactly like in the manga. I didn't remember Meruem nose bleeding.
Netero is not dead in vain, I wonder if Pouf understood this in his last moments...
And Palm is so beautiful, I loved her exposition. How can you become even prettier after becoming an Ant? I was captivated by her face all along.
Palm really good in this EP
