Damn, I forgot Akito was the one doing it. :/ Ah well, good to have anyways, thanks!

I love the fact that all of us have NO idea where the manga might head. There are so many possibilites in what Togashi could do. I'm sure it will live up either way.

I just want to see the guy in my avatar again, but it's unlikely though. I don't think Togashi has any desire to return to Kurapika and Spiders.

Well, there's one more Nen exorcist in the world. Maybe they'll cross paths.

I'm sure there will be people who are disappointed, but if they understood the whole meaning of Netero saying you can't beat human intelligence & history most will be able to appreciate it.

I hope they can accept it and appreciate it. I really like Togashi's message for the arc. I'm sure some people will be pissed though. Oh well. :(

this is my theory. Pitou says that Gon has forcibly matured so that he can beat it. Well, Gon matured all at once, so his hair grew for all that time too. Dude had no time to get a haircut, thus the massive do.

I loved it though. After it happened I wondered how amazing it would be if he died by being irradiated.

I remembered a lot in MangaGAF hating the final chapters of the Insect Arc, but for me it was really well done. Hoping they can do it justice in the anime though, and curious about how some would take from what will happen.

FWIW, I already appreciated that ending for both highlighting the idea that humanity (as per HxH's world) would exploit far more than the ants ever could in the pursuit of their own self preservation and for also respecting that NONE of the current active cast could handle Meruem given where he reached in Nen proficiency.

Thanks for so eloquently giving me another humorous reason to enjoy where the arc's ending went. :lol

Subbed for best Shounen manga. Hyped for its return even though it's only gonna be like 10 chapters. Hopefully Leorio tags along with Gon and the others for this new arc, he's been seriously left in the dust even Kuwabara got much more screen time in YYH.

Well Kuwabara was a badass and should have gotten much more screen time at the end.

Wasn't there a more experienced medical Hunter introduced in the election arc? Leorio should just train under her and the end up on the Zodiac's expedition team.

And will Zepile ever get a Hunter's License???! :(

From the standpoint of the particular Gon losing nen plot thread, yes Alluka was such a cop out. I have faith in Togashi's ability to make further use of him. His powers are super super frightening, and having him in someone beside's Kil's hands could lead to some pretty severe carnage. Could be an interesting way to use an otherwise massive "heal Gon" button.

Man, I want this so bad now. I really want to see exactly what it is other "types" of hunters do. Would be great to see Hanzo as a full fledged information hunter and see how that all works out. I also would kind of like to see the main group start to move in a direction of becoming specialized hunters as well.

Seeing Kurapika and Leorio again are what's really going to make this arc for me. Loved Chimera Ant, but it's definitely been too long for these two. What little we got of both in the Election arc isn't enough. It's time and I trust Togashi to make it worth the wait.

I don't mean to hate, but I really doubt we'll be seeing much of Leorio, and much less of Kurapika.

Leorio is still intrinsically tied into the Elelction arc which kind of hasn't finished yet, so I expect we'll get at least some resolution with him there. With the badass Kurpika photo right before the last hiatus, I doubt Togashi will wait out much longer before finally brining him back out.

If Togashi doesn't conclude the Chairman Election and delays Kurpaika's return for yet another arc, I'm not sure I can handle it. That's a bit much, even for him.

Oh no, that's terrible, Hanzo shouldn't be fodder like Pokkle. If anyone gets killed by the next villain, it should be those people in Kite's entourage. I have no idea why the were even introduced into the story anyway.

And your avatar reminds me: Let's say Hisoka brought Abengane to Chrollo, what the heck happens from there? Would Chrollo have that big ugly worm monster around him? But I guess he would at least be able to use Nen again.

I think Kite's group really only existed to foster the whole mentor image he had going for him. We got a bit of that at the beginning of the series, but having this whole group really painted him as an educator rather than a purely combat focused hunter. Made his death seem more tragic, I suppose.

I don't think they would have bothered me as much if they hadn't just disappeared like a third of the way through the Chimera Ant arc. I guess it'll be interesting to see how they interact with Ant Kite, though.

Chrollo wouldn't suffer any of the conditions from the exorcism. Abengane would have to keep Kurapika's nen as a "monster" until Kurapika dies or Abengane somehow fulfills the conditions required to dismiss it.
