I got chills big time at both the OP and ED, my favourite arc is beginning!!
My body wasn't ready for the Opening and ending theme epicness. Can't wait to see how they do Chimera Ants... I'm getting ahead of myself. I skipped the crap outta Greed Island. I need to just enjoy the ride and suck in the greatness.
Gon and Killua's hatsus look AWESOME. And I agree that Biscuit looks much better in animation. I was grinning like a little girl the moment I saw Ging in the OP. OMG.
Great episode. The new visuals for the opening were awesome! definitely better than the previous two openings visuals lol, and departure actually fits Greed Island very well. I also really liked the new ending. Now after seeing all the character designs in both the opening, and ending, I gotta say they all look great... even Biscuits
Here's some visuals from the ending.
So much Biscuit in the OP and ED... I'm getting used to her blonde hair now.
Anyways, great episode. I found Gon's "brain frying" scenes amusing haha.
The new opening was amazing. 100X better than all of the OVA Greed island openings, even though I still love the old songs:
Though I can't believe how awful the animation for the second opening is I mean, of all the things to skimp money on, why the opening?
Anyway, the new anime's Greed Island opening sure spoils a ton of stuff from the get go:

The original G.I. opening songs were great but the visuals flat out SUCK!
Overall, I wasn't impressed with the animation for the GI OAVs, although everything else was there.
This was so awesome, Greed Island arc is so cool. Am I the only one surprised by the fact that the Phantom Troupe was still there, I had no idea Phinx and Feitan wanted to play the game.
The ending has really grown on me, its really good. This episode was just great, and Im glad to see Wing and Zushi, didn't know when I would see them again.
I think I feel like rewatching this episode.
I've been re-watching the opening and ending for the last 15 minutes.... xD
I screamed like a crazed school girl when I saw Ging!! and seeing Biscuit do some aerial martial arts looked hella cool!!! Everything about it was freaking cool!!!!

I've concluded that at this pace we can probably expect 2 chapters per episode, perfect for greed island, which will place this at about 30 episodes.
