So he's Kurapika's nen teacher. And why they give us that instead of Kite?!
I think that next episode if there is time what they should do is show a tiny portion of nen training for the hunters...
Gon and Killua meditating
Kurapika meeting his trainer (I take back the learning about Conjuration. He shouldn't learn that until Hatsu has been explained.)
Leorio studying and maybe during that he finds out out about nen
Hanzo ninja training
Pokkle and Ponzu training nen together (hey something for the shippers)
Hisoka waiting patiently for Gon and Killua
Illumi on some random assassination mission.
though not in that order and it doesn't need to include all those characters. I just picked them because besides Killua they are the finalists.
I am on your side mrsticky :P I do want it to be different, I've read (most) of the manga and seen the 1999 series a bunch of times. That's why episode 24 was probably my favorite episode cause it brought something new to the table for Canary's character. It would be cool to see most things like it is in the manga (its mostly better this way). Just when things are translated from books to film sequences of events sometimes change for pacing reasons. I wasn't trying to imply I want the series to be 1999 series again (not at all)
I think futurefrog's suggestion would be neat too, expanding on his character. So Mizuken? That's seriously his name? I have the 2004 guide book but :P I don't read japanese very well, can anyone tell if his name is mentioned prior to the new series? I'm excited to see what sort of fillers we'll get (nothing big just small touches) in the next few episodes. This is where I first really heavily fell in love with HxH and its happening all over again XD. I'd be really happy if we got indepth Conjurer training details maybe or Mizuken talking with the Hunter Committee (we know they informed him about Kurapika or was that 1999 filler? I know Wing finds out about Kurapika later on too)
Would anyone want more Phantom Troupe foreshadowing or do we already have enough as it is? I am thinking we have enough, but I wonder if they'll add anything with Machi's tiny cameo in Heaven's Arena this time around.

Too much cackling from the three of them but otherwise I enjoyed the episode. Also, quite interesting to see Gido in red.
This is one anime that has me doing back flips every time i see an episode... this has slowly became my fav manga/ anime currently haha
Glad to see the series has made it very explicit that the Gido and his buddies suffered some real consequences from their initiation, a deliberate contrast to the 1999 series. I'm guessing the director of the '99 series simply missed out on the detail to be honest (seemed to be something quite tame to censor).
Also interesting to see the name of Gido's hatsu flashing on screen when he performed the move. I didn't find it off putting. The 99 series played it straight.
Visually in this episode the 2011 series wins. The characters are detailed and Hisoka was magnificently devilish. I found it strange how Zushi was portrayed though. Lots of slanting eyebrows that make him look darkly ambitious in this ep upon seeing Gon and Killua's aura. In the 99 series as well as the manga I recall that Zushi was amazed instead.

Did anyone else like the visualizations of the waterfall and the lake when Gon and Killua first performed Ten?
I think that Ten will look even better like this :
It looks like the Manga.
Do you guys think that the name "Wing" comes from the phrase taking someone under their wing?
