Look at this video, it opens with Killua struggling with his killing urges:
I hate how Killua acts like a stuck up rich boy as well mocking Whale Island.
Another qualm is how they somehow get a satellite dish out of nowhere and set it up on the roof of Gon's house 'to get internet'.
Then you have the horrible.. HORRIBLE fox bear filler.. watch the video to see how ridiculous it gets.
HE EVEN ATTACKS MITO... KILLUA ATTACKS MITO... What in the hell Furuhashi...
Oh and then Gon and Killua somehow heal the Fox Bear with Nen? Then the Fox Bear has NEN. THE FOX BEAR HAS NEN...
I don't even...
Considering how low the number of person who passed the hunter exam a year ,the hunter association most likely been observing them after they passed and had alerted the other hunters who are qualify to teach nen. So their meeting is probably not a "coincidence".
On a side note, I find that Wing teaching Killua nen to be a bit of an issue.
It was stated by Wing himself that nen is a dangerous ability and it can't simply be taught to anyone who plan to use it for harm.That's why only hunters can learn it.
Killua didn't even pass the hunter exam that year and is a former assasin who occasionally threaten people and still kill them. I find that Wing wanting to help them through the 200th floor to be a weak reason in teaching Killua nen. Maybe it's just me who find it a bit unconvincing.
@futurefrog -The fox bear having nen and the "internet " was probably the most dumbest thing in the filler.

This is my first time watching Hunter x Hunter, but I don't know why Im feeling more impatient this week than usual, to get to the next episode, its probably because you guys are saying a lot of good things about the scenes to come.
The way I see it, the Kurapika meeting Mizuken at the time Gon and Killua started studying nen reinforces the "coincidence" meeting and "I know nen. You obviously don't. See how powerless you are? Want me to teach you?". (There is no way that Wing doesn't know Killua was eavesdropping when he scolded Zushi.)
Good thing that Killua's always together with Gon and that Wing at the time he gave the real nen lecture doesn't know about Gon's "monster" disposition.
I also think that because Gon was with Killua the first time they asked about nen, Wing teached them the "other" nen. But when Gon and Killua got on the 200th floor, he had no choice but to teach them the "true" nen... or leave them to their fate.

While we're at it,
I do agree with the first half of the theory.I did say in the previous post that the HQ might alert the other hunters about the newbie and the one who are closest to them will teach the newbie.So,they do have the option.As for the part of the applicants,it is not necessary true.Quote:
While i know, it never been mention, I'm pretty sure there are other nen user who are qualified teachers are living close to the heaven arena tower.There are hunters who like to fight after all.It just that Wing is the "closest " to Killua and Gon.So,he ended up teaching them.Killua being with Gon is probably the most logical explanation as to why Wing taught him nen.
Here's how I see it.
Those who passed the Hunter Exam do not need to learn nen.
They can pass the Hunter Exam. Get their license and sell it for mucho dinero.
However without nen nobody will hire them as a hunter. So while their license
is legit their status as a hunter is not.
Learning is not a requirement in the sense that they have no choice
but to learn nen. It is a requirement in the sense that if they want
to be recognized as hunters they have to learn nen.
I do not think that every hunter who gets a license will be taught nen.
Of course there are those like Hisoka and Illumi who learned nen before.
As to why the Hunter Association gives psychopaths like them licenses: money.
The fact of the matter is that people like Hisoka aren't gonna be arrested and
put in jail any time soon. Hisoka does as he pleases. If the Hunter Association
can make a quick dolla off of Hisoka's thirst for blood then well why not?
Now imagine if Tompa, by a stroke of luck, passed the Hunter exam...
Now that I think about it, this is the reason why "charisma" for a Hunter is rated highly in the last Hunter exam phase. You want them to want you to be taught by them...
 The part about Wing being the "closest", this is the reason why he brought Zushi along. What better way to get "close" to gifted children than to bring another gifted child to "play"? Ironically, Wing's master looking like that is also the reason why that person got close to Gon and Killua.

Watched ep 31 with KeyHoleTV. The censoring was ok.
The only omitted scene is Hisoka eating his own arm. The rest is almost the same but less bloody. And, even if the omitted scene was pretty badass, it wasn't specially relevant.
The light seems to be some rest of Kastro's nen.

The way the hunter exam is being conducted , it pretty clear they only want the strongest to qualify through.They don't care whether that person is a criminal.Netero is someone who wants to play with the strongest people , so it's obvious he wants to be surrounded by strong people.
If Tonpa passed the exam ,I doubt anyone would want to teach him nen.Having join the hunter exam for 35 years ,I'm sure every single hunter would remember him,particularly those that have grudges against him.
I think it is just Netero's doing and has nothing to do with that.
The last bolded part seem a bit far-fetched...
Hisoka hands is sparkling!!XD
You all talk like if Nen is a knowledge exclusively to Hunters. Any Hunter that pass the first exam is BOND to know the existence of Nen, sooner or later. I think they have some few masters located everywhere. So you end "picking" your own master. And they get their second star if they teach well.
Also, better to educate someone rather than leaving a killer learning by its own without any kind of control.
Wow just finished the latest ep. It was awesome!
The animation was beautiful and the fight was as epic as it should be.
Next ep preview promises to have more blood (Look at Hisoka's face, its very bloodied)
I am not sure whether we will see the arm bite or not next ep, but I don't mind it's omission.
Otherwise great episode, very pleased to see this fight animated FINALLY.
The Way They show/ represent someone using Zetsu is just Awesome!! Amazing Episode!!!
I just finished the episode and... it was awesome! The animation looked great. The fight isn't as gory as the manga, but that's to be expected. Anyway I can't wait to see the rest of the fight next week

This was a great ep! The animation was definetly better than last weeks and they showed the arm fly off with pixie dust following! JK but that was to be expected. I understand the cloning part alot more now than I did in the manga which is good, because it'll go further into play next week when its rape time! XD Aside from the fight I found the opening scene pretty funny and I laughed when Wing showed up in front of them and their reactions, I had ust got off the "Oh crap" Page on TV tropes and I think this should be added somewhere XD
But really I was just sad when it ended. I WANTED TO SEE MOAR! NOW I HAVE TO WAIT A WHOLE WEEK URAGH!!!! 8/10 for leaving me like this...
welp on to my other stuff. I have a long night ahead of me.
