Is this sure the right order? Looks like the last 3 Sites there are not in the right order.
There it is:
But i think it should be more like:
Mostly because in the last panel of site 19 it looks like someone is opening something. It could be interpreted as kumogis view (if she could see) from in the box when the King starts to open it.
Then site 17 because he just opened it.
Then site 18 mostly because there is the Hunter X Hunter "End" Symbol.
Would make sense. (Note: from this point here i only have the pictures and no information of what the translation is.)
But of course the page 19 could mean some other place, like the dark Place in this cave and someone is opening a door.
So what i said could be hardly wrong but i just wanted to mention that it just depends of the viewpoint.

Ok, a little announcement here. I'll be modding this section from now on. For any request, suggestion or just throwing things at me send me a PM!
Judging from the Chinese Translation, the kings says "4-7-1 Bishop (or the name of one of the game pieces that they were playing)" he waits, then gives that creepy smile, then says "wake up Komugi, it's your move".
Basically the whole chapter is the King admitting that he knows that his time is limited, and the only thing he wants is to be by komugi's side.
Its quite touching actually. Through out the whole arc, the King had been built up to be the strongest nen user that will enslave the human race, and there is nothing the best nen users can do about it. At the end, he is brought down by a girl who has no nen ability at all. Its a typical twist that's been done several times before, but executed very well in this situation.

But it's a matter of the world's strongest creature being sublimated by the world's most frail solely due to the power of her mind. It was a great idea.
But if the translation is accurate, yes indeed it is very touching. We've seen Meryem act tenderly before so we know he's capable of being tender. The smile though. There's nothing sweet about that smile goddamit. For some reason Meryem always looks so goddamned creepy. It's like he was born without the ability to create happy or kind facial expressions.
Someone please translate Palm's words...?
"Nen is the ability to freely manipulating aura")
What Meruem saw was her aura, and If I'm not wrong, He made a comparison about how He could "see" her skill growing. I doubt She can control it, but who knows.
this page, at the bottom right corner. Killua's dialogue is mistranslated here. It should say:
"Four-eyes said that talented people in any field often use Nen without knowing it. Things with a trace of aura, like this knife, were probably made by geniuses."
What he is referencing is this page. This is another mistranslation, but what Wing is saying is essentially that few people know of Nen or utilize it--but those who do are known as geniuses. Komugi is a genius in terms of Gungi.
Neon Nostrade developed an entire Hatsu without even being aware of it--she just thought she was writing fortunes. In that sense, she's a genius. This scene is supposed to indicate the growth of Komugi's Nen. It isn't just her skill, but her aura transferring into her hands and the pieces.

About Komugi though the aura might just be some symbolic effect of her abilities as a Gun-Gi player rising. It could be Nen but it's sure it hasn't reached Neon's level yet (enough to call it a "Hatsu").
Neon had a personal connection to fortune telling, and it manifested in an ability that she was entirely aware of. Not only that, but she unconsciously imposed limits on herself to make the ability stronger. She never reads the fortunes she writes--she does not even understand that what she is doing is actual psychic ability. Neon just thinks that she's really good at fortunetelling.
As for Komugi, it has already been established that she's the world champion of Gungi--she's already a genius. However, Nen allows her to transcend. I don't think that the aura is figurative, but a literal light. When the King meets up with the Royal Guards near the end of the chapter, he mentions that he literally sees Komugi's body covered in light. Since the King never refers to Nen by its actual name (he calls it "the awakening" and aura is referred to as "light"), it can be inferred that it is what he means.
Also, if Komugi loses this game, her and the King will die together in that warehouse. I can't see her really living too much longer afterwards. She's blind--how would she find her way out of the storage unit if nobody's there.

EDIT: Oh, I totally misread your last two posts. Never mind this post, then.
