I absolutely loved this episode. Doctor movie gave us some great animation. The Boxing scene was channeling some Ippo goodness. Everyone's favorite pedo clown was at full force this week, and I seriously lol'd at Gon, and Killua's as their eyes slowly started to rise when Hisoka started to SCHWING!
Now... I'm sooo freaking excited for next week. This has been one the moments I've been most looking forward to since this anime was originally announced, and going by the preview we're seeing some awesome animation with Goreinu's dodge ball throw.
Great episode! It's the first we've had in a while that was more humor based rather than plot or information-dumb based. It was a bit refreshing and I'm enjoying Hisoka and Goreinu already. Some of Gon and Killua's expressions were priceless this time around.
- What happened to "Bisuke's acting all annoying and girly"? I liked that line...
- "Who is this pervy freak?" Nice to know Goreinu's the normal one of the bunch.
- Togashi falls on Hisoka's head! That's awesome.
- Gon, Killua, that's called a bishoujo. See in any other shounen you're supposed to fall for one of those.
- These are the most girls gathered in one spot I've ever seen in HxH.
- Hisoka sure knows a lot about anime cliches. I bet he's secretly an anime nerd.
- I'm liking Killua's thinking music. All he needs now is a chair.

I'm still waiting for AOT's encode to watch the new ep....
Actually, that became my take once MH adapted passed the "tentative" number of eps (I think it was 50 something?) they said before. In the beginning, I don't really mind if they actually remove Kite's plot point since they also consistently alter/erase scenes that pertain to that direction and if we take into account how "welcoming" the old anime hxh fans to the series was at the start, it's not really that hard to imagine that this version might get canceled too (which was the reason why others who normally just lurk and not participate in discussions came out and do positive marketing).Quote:
However in a narrative POV, it does reduce the upcoming impact of WHY Togashi put that flashback at the start since he himself is not really that fond of using it.
My whole post before is a rebuttal to that someone saying that hiring/choosing VA is not much a concern for the production team when in fact, it is. Also, VA casting is serious business in Japan.
Edit: As for first Hokage havign the same tech as Netero, no surprise there, HxH has been a right popular manga to steal techs from- i think i can name a dozen or so shonen who did this, and Naruto in particular was a regular at that.
Killua should seriously start considering a career as a detective. Maybe.
Episode was great this week! MH sure handled the scenes very well. Anyone know what music was playing during the boxing match? Seems like it's the first time they used that track. Or maybe I just forgot where else they used it in.
nice episode i really enjoyed watching it
animation and drawings are top ..and they will stay on that pace in the dodge ball game
The episode was great as always =D 9/10.
Goreinu is one my favorite side-characters ever. I just love him to death.
Badass. Useless guy, but badass anyway.
Bishie Biscuit :O
Ass appreciation post:
I want to watch this episode sooooo bad ! But the 1080p quality isn't out yet. I refuse to watch this show unless it's absolute 1080p quality, that's how good HxH is
So I watched ep 68 thrice. LOL Hisoka! You're so entertaining as always.
The Jingli Boobs nee-san last ep is to counter the massive hoyay this ep. I approve MH. Let's not alienate the other fanbase who likes their boobies.
So I guess we'll take it a warning that if we pick up hetero fanservice, chances are the hoyay next ep will be glorious.
Togashi really didn't like cliche love interest and poke fun of them here.
Dat pervy Hisoka! Dat Takeuchi Naoko-esque Biscuit! Dat awesome anime! Overall another excellent episode of Hunter x Hunter. I am loving the Greed Island arc, which is great seeing as it was the arc I was anticipating the most in this new adaptation. However, if I did have something to nitpick about, it would be the fact that Hisoka's hair was pretty damn straight for someone who'd just finished bathing. Madhouse's HxH is supposed to have a wavey-haired Hisoka! In the Heaven's Arena arc he had wavey hair when he got out of the shower, so why not now? Yeah that little detail bugged me for some reason. Also, the next episode looks as if it won't be as great in terms of quality as this one. I just hope that they save some awesome animation for the match though. DODGEBALL!!!!
The girl running around with toast in her mouth reminded me of Sailor Moon. I used to think that Aiai was a cool place to hangout, but then there's that constant ringing noise...
is that a boner upon seeing Gon and Killua's growth??
