THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Man, Tonpa is dragging them down.
Plus, I can't wait to see if Killua decides to fight... consider what he did to those poor guys last episode.

Ah, this episode was TOO short!!

I want to see the next fight SO badly! Tonpa's so stupid.. But I think he'll come around by sometime in the series.

5/5 - LOVE HUNTER x HUNTER!

Not much really to say, Trick Tower is still cool. I have a question though, the guy with the scars on his face who was standing behind Lippo, wasn't he an examinee in the original and not a part of Lippo's staff in Trick Tower?

Cool episodes :) I loved their fighting effect~ It was cool that they didn't sensor the climber being eaten instead of carried of by those ugly birds. Tompa was annoying as hell. I can't wait for Killua's fight XD
It's too bad i will have to wait a whole week for this again!! The episode did felt too short~

Personally, I found this episode horrible. They stalled out way too much, which is a first for HxH 2011.

Well, as long as they don't censor Killua's match next episode I won't care... unless they take another episode to get to his fight.

The pace so far has pretty much been 2 chapters per episode, same with this episode.

TBH, I don't remember the pacing from the Manga at all so this episode felt very slow.

Actually in the manga he was an examiner for last year's exam
the one hisoka almost killed and got disqualified because of him

The end confirms that the 2 on the ship died (or well, dropped out at least).

I was expecting them to go a little further this episode, but they covered everything well, so no complaints really.

I think he is a Manipulator
sure even normal people can use knives like boomerangs but i think nen is needed to to be that good at it
Hisoka after all is so it could be a battle of that sort but not shown to the viewers

Anyways looks like the pacing has slowed down. This episode was probably just as boring as episode 1 was but it's good to slow down the pace a little. I like how in the old one they all jumped down in like slow motion and synchronized doing it. Looks like Tonpa tried to screw them over but he made the right decision because that would have been worse for them. I want to see Killua's fight but I don't think that'll be next episode. Gon and Kurapica will be next episode and
Can't wait till the next episode when stuff actually happens.

I liked the small part when they were waiting for Tompa:
Gon riding around on Killua's skateboard and Killua playing around with the fishing rod - Don't remember seeing much of that in the older anime :D

But nice episode overall, sure it could've been faster, but it's better to not have a fight cut halfway or something.

This anime totally brought me this season! (I'm even watching the old version in the meantime xD) Can't wait for more ^^

So... they did about 1/3 (maybe a little less) of the Trick Tower in 1 episode - nice :) Can't wait for Kurapika's and Killua's (my all time favourite character of HxH ^^) fight! (hopefully they will not censor it... too much ;p)

Tonpa is hysterical - enjoys knocking others dreams via sabotage.
I can't be alone in thinking this was funny.

I wish the episode could be longer! Nothing exciting happened either, just some Tonpa screen time. And I have a feeling Killua's fight will be censored, but if it isn't, then I'll be a pretty happy camper when it happens. :L

I knew they were gonna end up with Tonpa as the 5th person but at least he didn't go the way I thought he would and try an take up a massive amount of time by fighting first. He wouldn't have won anyway so him giving up in two seconds only helped them lol.
When I first started this show I thought it was gonna just be another generic shounen and I'll end up lagging to watch it, but now I really like this show and can't wait till the next episode comes out!

Another "okay" episode, for me.
Really liked the SD-drawing style straight out of the manga, when Tonpa gave up.

Guess Killua's Match is episode 10 then. The hate will be with me.
But chances are, that episode 9 will be fine then, too. Kurapika awesomeness incoming. But don't they dare mess his "look" up!

Seeing Tonpa having red aura around him was funny

I wounder if Leorio will make that little joke about Kurapika in his match XD
They cheated. Fair and Square.

lol. Oh shit. His gender is getting more and more ambiguous. "He's a boy," "He's a boy." *keep playing that through my head*

Wouldn't that be some shit if we found out he had a sex change or something. lol most likely not though because theres some other characters like him in the series.

THEY ARE strong, at least strong enough to block hisoka's attack
But that doesn't mean they are waaaaaay too strong
Besides hisoka is much stronger, he is on the 12 zodiac's level for god's sake
Makes perfect sense..


Well Satotz said that Hisoka is on the same level as him and the rest of the examiners.
Meh...Whatever I'll accept it.

He is much stronger than most of them(clearly he is a criminal why can't black list hunters kill him!)
Satotz was just estimating how strong he is
Examiners are strong but not necessarily the strongest ever( i mean menchi does have fighting skills which is a basic requirement for a hunter but she isn't as strong as lippo
yes that guy was strong and even after he trained he got owned because still wasn't on hisoka's level
a year isn't that much time
and hisoka is a magician he can handle a little weapon like that :D

Yeah, so the discussion about Killua and those two guys from the last episode is finally over. Killua did kill them. Or at least hurt them so badly they couldn't participate the third fase.

Oh, i was so excited watching the episode that when it ended i was like: Already?

^I'm not sure about that. We still need to see Gon, Leorio and Kurapika. Killua won't probably have his match until episode 10. They gotta save the best for last. :)

That episode seriously felt too short. I guess I was expecting the Killua fight earlier than it happens, though. It's been way too long since I've gone over the Hunter Exam arc.

An okay episode over all, but I'm really looking forward to the fights to come.

… It can’t be that this episode was half an hour long. No way. It was far too short, man! I WAITED A WEEK TO BE LEFT LIKE THIS!? I AM NOT SATISFIED. Ah well, what to do. Must wait for what I want.

… and they’re seriously hinting the use of Nen since the very beginning.
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.
