Hello Hunter x Hunter hands, you know this is a good week because there was no Hiatus after one chapter! Jokes aside this chapter was a big surprise for me because it was so random that something all Hunter x Hunter fans wanted to see, and we wake up to Chrollo vs. Hisoka which is amazing! So without further Adieu, lets review!
I love Hunter x Hunter fights. For the one reason you have to use your brain to truly understand the creativeness in them. I knew Hisoka and Chrollo wasn’t going to be a brawl that was just going to happen over time. I knew that Hisoka who’s skill set is not as diverse has Chrollo’s set. So he has to be on constant alert for something new to happen, and will have to find a way to fight Chrollo with his nen. Chrollo has a different problem, he has to find the right ability that would be a perfect counter to Hisoka, and he has to use it to make sure Hisoka can’t figure it out. When Chrollo purposed a fight to the death with Chrollo, it was getting my heart pumped. I love both characters, and I really don’t want to see one die, however if Chrollo dies, it makes room for Hisoka to grow. If Hisoka dies then Chrollo will not grow as much because Hisoka was not his main ideal. This is good character arc because whoever wins has a door open that opens a plethora of opportunities. The art in this was nice, and it shows that maybe Togashi is taking this seriously.
While I love the chapter, it’s run by pure fanboy adrenaline. You take a plot line that fans have been wanting for years, and all of a sudden just throw it into our face. I wanted to see the process of the fight being led up too. I wanted the hype to be build up, I wanted to see every moment before hand. Now all of a sudden I’m watching a fight that, I always wanted, and I didn’t know any of the history before it. It’s like I worked so hard for something, but in the middle of working hard it was just given to me. Makes me question why did I work so hard. I know it’s not the best complaint but it still works.
I predict next chapter the fight gets intense, but it ends with some questionable visitor.
I rate this chapter an 8.5/10. You have got to love Hunter x Hunter. Well until next time, God Bless!
