Hunter x Hunter has done some pretty impressive stuff throughout the Chimera Ants arc, though it’s also had some problematic material as well, especially with the pacing of things. As we saw in the last episode, everything is going upside down for Gon as Pitou was powering herself up and getting ready to take it to the next level while he’s simply falling apart after everything that he’s seen. With this episode, we get another taste of what Meruem is up to in his search, one that has Pouf doing his best to get him back to who he was so they can exact their revenge and rule over the world with a kind of large scale brutality that has never been seen before. There’s so much at stake at different levels and it was all so masterfully presented that you couldn’t look away from it.
