Okay I can see Kurapika joining to prevent outside world excavation by Beyond Netero. I think Togashi intentionally focused Kurapika past about an Outside world.
I think The Troupe will side with Beyond to journey to Outside World which will cause Kurapika to side with Zodiac and possibly join as the replace of Pariston.
The only people I can think for replacement of Ging would be either Hisoka (wanting to fight against strong opponent of Beyond Netero) or Morel to fulfill the will of Netero his friend.
Only one on the list that has the qualities to be a Zodiac is Morau. Even Novu wouldn't fit after exposing his psychological weakness during the Chimera's incident.
Morau and Biscuit. Morau is the most logical choice. As for Biscuit, we don't know how close she was with Isaac, but she studies within the same branch of Martial Arts as Netero, so I wouldn't be surprised if she were a student of his, or at least within the same line as he is. Plus she also got as high as 9th place in the chairman election.
Entering in the zodiac 12 isn't an easy feat.
If I must say some names, I'd say Biscuit and perhaps Morau, but I would go with the first person I mentioned.
Let's remember that the Zodiac Twelve were a group formed by Netero as sparring partners. That doesn't mean they're the best, only the handpicked by him. So following that logic, Morel is the most logical choice so far.
I'd pick Biscuit and Morau. But I think with everything else going on, they're not going to officially recruit new members to the 12, but instead build allies to stop Beyond Netero.
I think Kurapika will become an ally of the Zodiac
I don't see how Kurapika could be connected with them. He is too far removed. He is friends with Gon, who is the son of Ging, who was a member of the twelve. That is the only way in which he is connected. He never knew Netero. Plus, the other twelve were all sparring partners of Netero. Kurapika is nowhere near strong enough to spar with him. He's strong, but only against the Spiders. And he is too focused on his mission. The only way they'd align is if the Zodiacs made war with the Spiders, and there is no indication that the Spiders are even on the Zodiac's radar.
I agree that Kurapika isn't even near to become a Zodiac Twelve, but I have to be a bitch and tell you that He DOES know Netero.
Netero and Kurapika know one another. I don't think Kurapika will join because he has a connection but I think he will join the side of the Zodiacs because he will try to oppose going to the Outside World. In his backstory he fought hard to go to the world outside Lukso province but ultimately that brings about the massacre of Kurta clan. They say when you go Outside tragedy will befall the world. I think Kurapika will fight against Beyonds crew alongside the Zodiac for this reason. It cant be just a coincidence that Togashi makes Kurapika backstory about Outside worlds.
Netero and Kurapika know one another.
They even talk when Netero talks with the final contestants of the Hunter Exam.
Netero is dead so he can't handpick the Zodiac members so....I would say it would be left of the Cheadle or a group decision of the Zodiacs to vote somebody with an influence in the HXH Association or somebody with high recognition. We know They are pretty much good guys besides Partison who wore an incredible masked but his evilness would leak out his pores at times.....Kurapicka can potentially side with them but he's useless agains't Non-Spider members he has a very limited Hatsu abilities....Biscuit was trained by Netero if i'm not mistaken she had a relationship with Netero and remarks him as a crazy bastard i believe she's the most for running candidate. And then we have Morau who plays his own part in the HXH Ass. I think he's still lacking but Netero didn't solely chose the Zodiacs on strength or fighting capabilities it's their Nen abilities that he liked and respected and had fun competing against....I think it would be awesome if Hisoka could join he fits right in with the weird bunch and wants to fight some of them.
Why would there be replacement members? The Zodiac was formed at the will of the former chairman for his amusement. The new chairman can do whatever she wants. Maybe she wants a fantastic four or dynamic 10.
Btw, if there do need to be replacements there should be 3 instead of 2 since Cheadle isn't one anymore too.
True, sorry, I forgot about that.
But while he knows Netero, technically, he isn't in any way close to him. Sure, he met him, but if I, as a student, because of my accomplishments as a student, was able to meet the President in the form of being honored with a scholarship by him, that doesn't mean I KNOW him, or am at all close to being made a member of his cabinet.
