Here is chapter 340 Enjoy!!
I suppose this hiatus will serve Togashi in the sense that he might need time to think over the characters of this new world. Greed Island had a whole set of rules and creatures of its own, with a whole adventure to fulfill by Gon and Killua, this time he needs to think over tons of characters into something and the world itself that must be built (and how will he present it to the readers). I can live with that if he turns up with a good result as was GI.

THE NEW ARC HAS BEGUN! \o/
Oh boy... It's look like that Kakin is in the New World. So, looks like there will be a crossover with One Piece too. Soon, Gon will want to be PK and the relics are the AW.
Just kidding, good chapter, maybe we will see Pariston in the NW.
Did anyonone noticed Pariston in page 16? He is with Beyond Netero, OH BOY!

again we will not known anything of Kurapika.... so maybe Ging and Gon are going to the new world as well...
Just can't like the new direction this manga is taking. Its feeling more and more One Piece-ish...whether its a good thing or a bad thing is a matter of debate, but what's sad is that HxH by its own right was a wonderfully unique manga.
Oh crap, i'm so curious about what's on this second DVD the zodiacs are about to watch...
So this is what Pariston was keeping to himself? I guess Ging knew too so he's on his way to see Netero's son. I wonder why Pariston would want to go to the "Dark Continent". This other country although mentioned I don't think we're gonna see that for a while it seems like just to obtain access it takes 5+ years.
I was really worried about the future of the manga, but the next arc looks to be an exciting one even if at first glance it appears somewhat unoriginal. I don't see Gon getting involved in this conflict without one or two of his original partners involved, so I think it likely that we'll see the return of Kurapika, Leorio and/or Killua (sans evil genie) at some point during the arc. The zodiacs getting in some action should be awesome.
The hiatus is hopefully going to be a relatively short one.
Also love pariston in the meeting with Netero's "son", what's going on in his mind?, If anything is bad about this twist is the downfall of Hisoka as a character, what is his pourpose now?, it got lost as being just a guy that goes around beating strong guys, I just want some ambition other than that be thrown into him, also I'm still waiting to hear from kurapika, what the hell is he doing?, appart from taking the eyes of his clan!, and When will we see Danchou! Did the nen ereaser succeed?, and i'm rooting for the Hisoka Vs Danchou fight!! There are soooo many things still left to close, I'm drooling to see the story behind all, also loved how the Ant Arc introduced us to what we will see in the Dark Continent (New World is to One Piece-ish :P).
This turns of events is epic, all the characters that were introduced are not wasted, they are being tied with the plot in a way that everyone matters.
1)New characters are design-wise cool. I'll expand on them later.
2)Art-wise, this chapters delivers regular pieces but wonderful expressions.
3)So Aizak huh? What a cool name, Chairman.
4)Beyond Netero is particularly interesting. He does resembles A LOT to his father (If He's) and even his tone according to the Zodiacs match quite a lot.
I like the whole Chinese General looking, He looks strong and confident.
5) I personally LOVE that Pariston is there with those people. I find his character HIGHLY interesting and I was dying to see more of him.
6) I-Tube? Awesome, Togashi. <3
7) So this will bring 6 parties to play. Of course, this is just a supposition.
A) Beyond Netero's crew
B) Whatever Ging joins
C) Gon's crew yet to be shown but that will feature people around the world wanting to go outside.
D) Zodiacs hunting Beyond Netero.
E) Outerworld Agents and politics there (Which could split in more)
F) Kurapika, Leorio and Killua who are yet to be shown if they will be on this adventure as well. Killua will probably travel fast around the world, enough to give him the curiosity to travel outside. BUT It could be that these three will be involved in a new sub-plot that happens in the current world map regarding the events outside. Kinda a two-faced coin which will bring the same outcome. Togashi proved many times being very capable of handling these.
BTW, I bet Jairo will own Kakin after all this. A riot or something will happen there, enough to give Jairo the political power it needs and then the plot will mix with the V5. I'm talking about the next arc after this one, of course.
8) I only wish that Togashi would have leave more hints about this before to not look like everything is taking out of the hat. Same with the damn DVD.
9) Beyond Netero's crew looks weird. They seem to be a reference to plenty other mangas. Is this a real reference with a message or Togashi is just teasing us?
10) Imagine if Netero says that they should protect him...What Zodiacs will do with two opposite orders?
And I agree with Munevar..We still don't know what's Gon true "destiny". I mean...Ok, we knew that finding Ging was important. But after all we learn in the manga about challenges and exceptional people, it would be weird if Gon just settles him by finding him. Something else must happen. And this is somewhat a tie between father and son: The Outerworld. The meaning of Ging life can change Gon's one.

whoah, my predictions got thwarted severely.
So no Kurapica, huh?
I do like the new stuff happening.
I think that beyond netero is an imposter built up by pariston (who ofc knows netero well enough to find a guy resembling him and dressing him up like that). So i believe pariston will go from antagonist to protagonist here, he will be just another player in the new world (forgive me for the OP reference, but it will be a bit like supernova to luffy).
Aside from that, i cannot see any resemblance of this new world to the ne piece new world except for both being a place where most ppl cant go.
Oh, and btw, i hate togashi for not showing us that damn second DVD.
