Question: Can you guys see the poll results? If not, would you mind changing it so that they can Uriel? Thanks.
the results are hidden
Gyro is a very good bet since he is so strong willed and determined and we've seen how much determination matters when it comes to Nen and power in the HxH universe.
There are still too many unknowns though especially after Ging and Beyond's reveal of what is to come and how much of the world is still out there.
best story would be if Gyro can control the elders at Ryuuseigai he controls Genei Ryodan.
About Meryem... He indeed was smart. But not knowledgeable. He didn't know many of things a common mid-schooler would; but he had a potential to learn it easily if he tried. But he didn't. He showed no interest of the outer world. And he also had much less time to learn than he thought he would. It wasn't a plothole that Ants weren't informed about the Rose.
Now, I think Gyro, even though being less smart than Meryem, should be more knowledgeable. And he has a great experience of hiding in shadows. Meryem couldn't possibly do that even if he wanted, cuz sudden appearance of the unknown species do draw a lot of attention. It's easier for Gyro in this sense. And I doubt Meryem would even try to hide his actions; as he didn't have to fear anyone succeeding in interrupting. So Gyro would have a lot more of time to play out his plan. He doesn't seem so dangerous as the Ants from the start, so he couldn't possibly draw so much attention that it is needed to annihilate him quickly. And that is a big mistake. That're the main reasons I think he could be potentially more dangerous than the Ants were. And it seems even if he isn't the "Big Bad", he could be the main villain of the final arc. Well, I hope so.
Now, I didn't find the discussion of what happened with Chrollo... So I think I'll post my thoughts here. It is pretty obvious that he couldn't have been killed by Hisoka behind the scenes (tho it is Togashi who we are talking about, so you can't know for sure =3). So the fight probably didn't take place yet. And it was said that Chrollo was running from Hisoka (?). Assuming of what we have already seen of Chrollo, he doesn't seem like a man who would break his promise to fight. So it looks like he was still unable to fight even though the Chain was (probably) taken off him. Then I remembered the Exorcist who agreed to help them is Abengane... Who doesn't only take of the curse but has the Forest Ghost eat it and then it 'replaces' the curse until the Nen goes away by itself. So it's probable that Chrollo is just uncomfortable with this Nen beast (lol) so he can't fight. I think Hisoka would understand in the end. Another question then is why Kurapika didn't feel that his Nen was taken off... There are two options for that. The first is he actually sensed it and is currently searching for Danchou. The second is that the Beast actually imitates the 'Nen signal' or whatever there is. I mean, Genthru could probably sense his Nen as well, but he didn't sense it when it remained inside the Beast Abengane called (I guess). It could be that the Nen was removed as the title suggests and the Nen Beast comes only as a replacement; but there is a possibility that the beast makes Nen user to sense his Nen as he shoud if it still would be on. Genthru would feel like the bomb on Abengane exploded (or there's another option that he doesn't just pay attention) and Kurapika would feel like the Chain is still on Danchou. So that's my version. Or was it obvious already and I'm just being slowpoke? ._.
I hope you understand my lame english =D
About the feeling your aura...Not necessary. If you take in consideration Kurotopi ability, you'll see that it's not implied that every thing made with Nen has En applied to it. So you could just recieve a signal of your aura, but only knowing that it's moving.
Since we were talking about Chimera ants and stuff I'll just add this vid... lol
Dat Koala Ant
Just random thought.... suddenly pop out in my brain when I'm in school and looking at this....
That's bring the question if it's Jairo or Gyro.
Plus Chrollo vs Kuroro.
I doubt Togashi knows English. I mean, Quwrof Wrlccywrlir? Really? =D
