I just re read the chapter (i thought spoilers will come out early this week ), i have to say Illumi puts Itachi to shame http://mangastream.com/read/hunter_x_hunter/82786759/10 with his twisted brotherly love.
Hisoka more badass every chapter lol decisions decisions... ♥
Btw Killua calling Alluka "it" instead of nanika is that a translation fault or did Togashi change the word?
What kind of rule would make everyone want to control Killua? maybe it's connected to the "command" he mentioned before, something like only Killua can use a command instead of wish which would grant him what he wanted wihout any sort of backlash, though it has to be restricted somehow like he can only make a command every 5 non-healing wishes or so.
What did Morau mean here http://mangastream.com/read/hunter_x_hunter/82786759/18 "you read the indroductions for the best 16" does that mean the hunters association has a top 20 hunters list or something?
Also Morau saying Terradin, bushidora and others are too weak to call themselves the seiren group means the original members are monsters and it gives me hope that we might see some of them
Lastly i really hope Pariston wins the election, it'll be alot more interesting that way
I did not paid attention to that. It's in fact interesting (Top 16 I mean) although I doubt there is an original Seiren alive. I do expect to see those top 20 soon, it seems like it could be interesting. Zodiacs probably belongs to them anyway.
Too shame that those Hunters were weak, I liked them.
Not necessary bad translation. Nanika means "something" in Japanese but has no meaning in english. I think 'it' was a good choice of word, it has the neutrality nanika implies and is more clear than a japanese term few of us would understand. You loose the wordplay but gain in comprehension.

@Uriel: About the original Seirin group, it wasn't mentioned that Netero belonged to it when he was at his prime, he might have formed/joined the group when he was old, remember even as an old man he was still a beast and a top tier fighter. I hope the Zodiacs arent in it, they were already mentioned as Netero's sparring partners so i'm thinking it's a different group.
Well, the nanika bit was already explained and if that was not enough a footnote could have helped. I disliked the "it" part too lol.
Killa: " Go ahead and refer to it as a tool again, but you will cease to be my brother."
kinda contradict urself when u call her it..
eh i forgot to ask, when Morau said he's a C hunter did he actually say sea hunter but translators typed it like that since it's the same pronunciation? or did Togashi just introduce new ranks for hunters other than stars? /confused
Ok...so, I'm new here, but I've been following the manga forever heh
Well, about Alluka...I don't think Killua gave "Nanika/It" a command, cause when Tsubone completed the 3 pesterings she said to Killua to speak his wish (it doesn't seem like Alluka grants wishes to the person who completed the pesterings, but to anyone who wished in front of It when it's eyes turn black). Tsubone doens't know about the "commands" so we can easily assume it was actually a "wish". Besides, Killua was about to give an order to Nanika before Tsubone appeared so we can easily say that "commands" don't have pesterings.
Also, we should remember that Killua, when escaping with Alluka, made a wish to kill his mother if they didn't leave the mountain after 30 minutes, but he never said "wish", but still, it was a wish.
I think that Illumi, after Alluka's pesterings have been completed, didn't wish simply because he's scared about killing his own family if he wishes wrong, so he chose to let Killua wish, and if he ended up dead, he'd be glad to live as a memory inside Killua's mind.
We should remember that, if the secret rule about Killua is something in the lines of "the one I love the most will have anything granted if he orders me so" Illumi will plant needles on Killua's brain to control him (let's not forget that he is a manipulation nen user) and so, control Alluka's power. About taking out the needle....don't forget it took him a lot to do that, so I wouldn't expect him to do it every time, he was driven by his emotions the first time.
Well, let's see what happens next, because...it's been a while and I wanna know what's going to happen with the chairman's election
I think , <-- (Comma) Pariston is planning something really big. <--(Period)

Yes, I think evidence so far shows that the "command" is still available, Killua was about to give the command to Nanika just before Tsubone appeared. It was made vaery clear by Milluki at the beginning of the arc, that the Zoldicks only know 5 rules about Alluka's abilities, and they recently learned a 6th one about using It for healing.Quote:
I don't think Illumi would dare using Alluka's power, because it frightens him, to the point that he's willing to kill his own brother in order to protect his family (twisted but nice huh?), plus, it was way better for him trying to make Killua kill him (as he stated, he would live forever inside Killua's heart)
