Really liked how they showed Abengane removing his Nen at the same time the exchange was going down. Added an extra sense of suspense to the whole thing, also Abengane came off as a really calm/quick thinker in this adaptation as compared to the manga.
The Bomber is such a bastard, that explosion definitely was awesome and didn't skip out on the oomph factor I was fearing. It wasn't horror movie grotesque but it was still pretty brutal. Can't wait to see more of Bomber and Razor in future episodes
Oh yeah and the Gon x Killua shipping in the Greed Island Tutorial X D Madhouse you funny ones....

Episode was awesome~ I personally liked how the creature that guy conjured was animated Its finally starting to get serious~
PS - Did anyone find that Hunterpedia gay as shit?! xD LOL
Nice episode. I don't know how many chapters it covered but the pacing has gone down to a much less noticeable speed. The only part that felt a bit fast was probably when Bisuke was telling Gon to change the shape of his Nen from 0 to 9. I also enjoyed the bit with having Abenage using his ability at the same time Bomber was preparing to detonate the bombs. And the face he made right after the massacre gave me chills. I'm loving his character in this adaption so far.
- I still think Razor's shorts look like they shrunk in the dryer just before going on set.
- Really fond of how MH drew Bisuke's expression when she's thinking about Killua's past. I'm getting a huge mother/teacher vibe from her I don't remember from GI Final.
- And Killua's expression in that same scene. Some GonxKillua loving here.
- A party of three in the middle of a sweaty plateau sounds like an awesome idea. I'll bring the Karaoke.
- So Togashi didn't take this opportunity for an outfit change? *Killua fandom rage*
- Abenage reveals not only the great plan Genthru had but his genius method of manipulating everyone's mental state. Great bit there.
- Genthru rocking his glasses gave me chills again; if only Leorio did that.
- "I can smell Gon on you." That's some...questionable wording.
- Tutorial: Okay. Now I keep thinking Gon's hoarding pregnant stones or something.
- What happened to the party?

Great episode. I don't feel like writing much sense I practically forced my self to stay awake lmao. Razor looked badass. He's one of my favorite characters, and It was so beast watching him blow up the Troupe little boat lol. Genthru and gang blowing up all the players was nice! not as violent as the manga but It was violent enough for the anime. My favorite part was probably Abengane conjuring the nen beast to remove Genthru's countdown bomb. But before I sign off and go to sleep.... man.... the G.I. Tutorial this week was... I'll just let the emoticons do the talking for me haha

What an amazing episode, this did not disappoint in any way. Genthru is proving why he is the best strictly villainous character in the series.
He embodies his motto, 'the trick with deception is to show them how calm yet crazy you are'
I loved the detonation scene, it was a brutal as I'd hope for from the anime and damn was it brutal, did you see Nickes exploded IN HALF!?
That was different to the manga where he instantly died but seeing him only in half still alive in clearly intense pain was tough to watch.
Loving this Greed Island adaptation in my opinion it has easily surpassed OVA already. In fact 2011 anime surpasses old series entirely in my eyes.
Another great episode,HxH training is always so entertaining to watch,and we finally see Razor.And about the Phantom Troupe.
holy shit....i really enjoyed watching this.. they covered i think 4 chaps ..episode no skips
actually they added a filler which i liked
razor's scene was perfect he is a badass
the bombing scene was good
looking forward to the next episode
even more stunning scenes are coming
yes and the tutorial sucks and really gay

Loved the episode. I enjoyed a lot the explanation of Abenage. And surely I liked how they explained the technique of Gon, it was enough casual just as I thought it would be.
And LOL, so much hate for the KilluxGon love <3
It was a really nice episode. And I didn't know Genthru was such a good troll.
Razor's badassness sky rocketed with the new voice actor and the awesome animation for his attack. As for the GI tutorial...hmmmm.
I deeply enjoy reading the reviews of those anime-only watchers. Their theories about Killua are awesome
This episode was amazing. Everything about it was just perfect. Gon's ability color was also a nice choice, it fits. Wonder if it'll stay the same when the ability is "complete". Genthru is as much of a total freak as he should be, and Nickles's (?) final speech was brutally well-done.
