Auauahauhauhauahahua!! I knew it would be a funny chapter, uahahaahauh!!! =D
Glad Togashi did it that way, as we are right now, we still don't know Pariston's true intentions, even though we grasp a little of his feelings (and his deep respect for Netero, on the same level as the other zodiacs; maybe even greater). Only time will tell us more about his plans (if he is shown again, which I hope he will be). Also, the theories about Ging's "Aizen-mode-turn-on" may finally rest in pieces, for he never have foresaw Pariston's ultimate troll. Not to mention him beating the hell out (apparently) every hunter in the room, by himself (which made me and the rest of the zodiacs laugh like mad, it seems =]). The end is, as expected for the last chapters that came, an awesome cliffhanger, though I'm more concerned now about Gon's next steps, and the whereabouts of the other hunters who came to see Gon.
Last, but not least, I just loved Gon-Ging interaction. Ging definitely is not a good parent, but not a completely hopeless (and useless) one. He also showed why he was considered by Netero one of the top 5 strongest nen user's of the world, for the way he teached Kaito his nen powers (leaving room for a free-ressurection nen ability, to use as an ultimate technique? Who saw that coming?).
All in all, this chapter is, once again, much more than I could have expected it to be =D
interesting chapter so gons new goal is to find ging again and fight against him later?
and next arc could be about finding Kurapika
Aizen should have learned something with pariston. The guy is the best troll that I eve seen in manga.
now I want so see the old team together again... leorio, kurapika, gon and killua!!! it would be nice...they are the best characters after all... and I was a little sad when the team disbanded after the Spider Arc.... but maybe the war between the spiders and kurapika will return....I think Lucifer is on the road again with the nen-remover found by Hisoka. But there is a question, why Hisoka left Lucifer when he found the nen-remover? it takes so long to remove kurapika's nen?
Mangastream's version is up too...
I'm quite confused on how to really feel about this chapter. Kind of anticlimactic in a way, it felt really weird reading this chapter. That might just me though. Anyways, I love Pariston's trolling very much that I can't help doing this:
Well, that fit perfectly with your signature. This chapter reminded my of the kind of scene we have seen in the beginning of the manga with Gon & Killua's childish attitude; That's a pretty good move Togashi make by cooling down the tension at the "climax" because a important event will happen near the Hunter Association building.

Ok, Phantron's explanation really did make sense. Pariston is as mad as Hisoka. I suppose he'll be in the final arc's group of characters who just want to enjoy themselves through evil doings. Or maybe they're relatives... lol!
Reading kewl's translation I didn't like this chapter much but molokidan's somehow made it much better. Still it was a bit disappointing and nowhere near as fun as most chapters in this arc. Gon was crying too much, everyone (Leorio and Gon) were apologizing too much and Parriston in the end didn't use such perfect opportunity to have fun (as a chairman he could practically do anything he wanted). In the end it turns out he's not so bad (so he's not an evil mastermind) and maybe Netero saw this and that's why allowed him to do what he was doing. After all if he wanted fun he could have appointed Hisoka as a vice-chairman or someone with power to make things interesting but he didn't, knowing perfectly well that Hisoka is a blood-thirsty killer. The way I see it Parriston isn't like that. It's good and bad at the same time. Anyway, I'm interested the most in what will happen with Zoldyck clan.
Oh, and drop of drawing quality also didn't help (as Bomber D Rufi pointed out). Probably the chapters he had drawn over the hiatus ended and now he has to draw everything in a week.
It seems like kaito is going back!!!
I just loved how the meeting was, it was like a twisted yet typical father son momment XD, when I saw killua and illumi, I was just like, OH SHIT!
This was a great chapter, and now confirmed with me that the story is far from over.
Also pastrion is such a troll XD
You know...thinking about it...it was just obvious Pariston was just trolling...I think I said it before, he's just doing it for the lulz
I can't just for Killua vs Illumi....sick brotherly love...gotta love it..but I think Gon and Leorio might show up in the middle of things and it'll be fun
Besides the sketchy art I love everything about this chapter, and of course all chapters since the return. One quick note for the translation though, on page 12/13 when Ging told Gon about how to apologize to Kaito, I strongly believe that Ging didnt mean to say he'll beat the shit out of Gon again, rather he meant Kaito would beat the shit out of Gon again, hence Gon's recognition that Ging knew about the incidence at the forest.
Pariston was trolling but I don't think this is gonna be the last we see of him.
Also Killua is obviously not dead or in critical condition.
So what are the consequences to Gon being healed.
Even if Killua can "order" Alluka to heal Gon there has
to be some kind of draw back to such an "order".
A tad bit of Killua vs Illumi
Hisoka intervenes. He wants to fight Killua.
Illumi and Hisoka argue. Gon then arrives.
It ends up being Killua vs Hisoka. Gon vs Illumi.
