A common misconception is that the top 5 users implies their positioning in strength. Netero is not one of the top 5 (if he was Biscuit for sure should've mentioned him) but it's really hard to see how any human could possibly defeat him in a fight. One of the Zodiac is said to be the closest to Netero in terms of power and experience, and Ging is part of the Zodiac. This means at least one of the member of the Zodiac is stronger than him, and thus if the top 5 is a ranking of strength then at least 3 of the top 5 spots are taken by Hunters because there are at least 2 Hunters stronger than Ging. Sure some of those characters might not have even existed at the point Biscuit talked about this top 5 but it'd be a huge plot hole if 3 out of the 5 in the top 5 are Hunters but Biscuit only mentioned Ging amongst the Hunters.
Honestly looking at HXH's worldview, Neon is the next best candidate for the 'top 5' because her ability is just so insanely useful, despite having no combat abilities whatsoever.
I, too, think that when Bisky said "top 5 nen users", she doesn't necessarily mean "strongest" but those who have the imagination, skill and capability of using nen (his or others) to its fullest (brilliant) potential... like say, making a real-life RPG. In my understanding, those who are the top nen users are the revolutionaries.
Top Nen User doesn't equal Top Nen though.
I can agree that Neon's ability is top-notch and it's incredible, BUT She's not skillful with Nen or proficient with it. Ging, in the other side, is able to not only use his technique (Which I'm assuming it'll be versatile) but also He can affects objects (like the box delivered to Gon)...He can even build a game! I think his understanding of that old scripture allows him to do so, which indicates how skillful He is on Nen.
she said among nen users there aren't more than 5 people like him
and about the word skillful'' it meant creative people who can use nen in various things and purposes . with a high effective......not just in fighting purposes
as we saw with ging comparing someone to him they must be very talented

Remember that manga stuff should be put in spoilers. Even characters names.
sry...but that doesn't mean ging isn't an emitter
I am in awe of what I just watched. Perfect portrayal of Genthru, I loved Hiroyuki Yoshino's brilliant turn for a more serious role here. I know him as Bossun from SKET Dance but he did a brilliant job as Genthru here, his delivery of the line 'the trick is to show how calm yet crazy you are' was just that, calm yet absolutely crazy.
I loved this episode and I can't wait to see more of my favourite antagonist, THE BOMBER!!
Watched the crunchyroll ver (No raw yet.) Looks good upon first glance, but what was with the whiplash ending? Like normally the ending starts playing and the narrator talks, but this week there was none of that. It was a little jarring. More opinions later. (I'm suffering from the flu among other things.)
So Crunchyroll is calling it Evil Fist eh?
Genthru reveal was cool, him having to reveal his abilities for them to activate I just find fascinating. The ability is still a major threat but thanks to the Nen system it's not OP
Lol at sudden transition into ending X D
Another good episode this week. I enjoyed watching Gon, and Killua learn Ko, Ken, and Ryu (lol I just realized street fighter names... )
Genthru revealing to everybody he's the bomber, and Puhats head in a plastic bag... I love that part (even though it was censored) and Bara decking the one G.I. player for not giving him the card xD
Also with the sudden ending I like wtf? but It's probably due to time constraints. Anyways I enjoyed the episode so... peace! I'm going to sleep.... I'm tired as hell lol.
