Ah...Pouf..this guy. I don't trust him at all.

Gon's rage is still intense as usual. It's also nice to see Netero vs the King again. Thank God. And the fight got intense like I had expected. Great episode. Oh and I like that pose Netero threw in there. <3

Pretty good episode, but I didn't liked it that they used the whole sequence again before the Netero x King fight. But the beginning of the fight was pretty hype, especially with that OST.

Can't wait for the next episode. Shit is gonna get real.

Well, I think this is one of my favorite episodes in the series, really liked the direction and the animation quality was awesome, as expected from Sugano (or Kanno)
Well Done Madhouse

And next episode .. HELL YEAH FINALLY !!

Wow, had so many goosebumps watching that episode, and the OST is amazing! The song that played while Netero and Meruem were fighting was like an even more epic rendition of "Riot", just beautiful. Animation was also very impressive, and loved seeing Netero's show of respect by making a heart with his hands.

New OST was great. Tombs are always great locations for fights. The King is yet to attack.

I conclude that this theme is in fact good!

Fantastic episode of Hunter x Hunter this week. Finally, back to Netero vs. the King! I loved the music used during their fight here. And LMAO @ Netero in the end. Why is Netero so moe~

and dear lord the first-half of the episode sure was complicated, but interesting. Why did Gon get so pissed off that Pouf flew away? Isn't it better that he's alone with Pitou? And I can't say I understand why Pitou thinks Gon could reach the King when Netero is going all out. Clearly the King is more powerful than Netero, so what would Gon be able to do to him? o_O

I'm just waiting for Gon to snap any moment now.

I wasn't expecting Netero to have the power of the meromero fruit at the end there... the king's heart is about to be conquered!

Amazing episode. Gon isn't taking anyone's shit especially Pouf's. My favorite part of the fight scene (besides Netero's heart going doki doki) is Netero doing the hand movements while the rocks were falling, shows how fast he is really moving.

She doesn't know how powerful Gon really is, with the aura he is giving off right now, she might think he is one of the most powerful of all the people who invaded.

Oh damn this fight (Netero-King) is the best I've ever seen on a series, god it's so good. All that's left is to see Gon kick asses.

Am I the only one getting upset with the progress the newer episodes has been making? I love this show and the wait is killing me.. I feel like they haven't been getting anywhere new recently, like Gon sitting and waiting for Pitou has been going on for 10 episodes now.

That was soooo good on so many levels!!! The first half with the psychological mind games and deduction (plus interesting development).... The fight between Netero and King is finally here and damn sure it was awesome!!!

The only negative was the reuse of the same scenes for the start of the fight... But that was a minor flaw..

Loved this episode so damn lots and lots >.<!!

Gon! F****n GON!! Loved his voice this ep. The seriousness in his tone is BA!
Loved how he made Pouf go "This kid is a pain in the ass, he's the most dangerous here"
Gon totally figured out all his plans. Like a BOSS :D

I can feel Pitou's fate of getting screwed come closer and closer bit by bit.

Loved the Netero fight. Some awesome animation there. He sent Meruem literally flrying a couple of times there. NICE! Still not a scratch on him though XD Well nxt ep seems to have Meruem with a few scratches at least ^^ Love how Netero looked in his challenging days. Dat fabulous hair XD
Netero seems to be regaining his lost battle senses and thanking Meruem for that XD
DAT NETERO <3 Made me LMAO XDXDXD Did they really have to make it pink XD

Sure the fight between the king and Netero is awesome and all, but I think we're forgetting why HxH is so genius. Yeah, I'm referring to the first half of the episode.

The character developments and physiologic conflicts are what makes the series.

This time it was Pouf lying his way out of Gon's ultimatum, only to be bashed by Gon's wit. which is what made Pitou understand she must eliminate him as he might be the biggest threat.

Also when Knuckle was about to tell Gon about Youpi's mercy, he managed to stop as he could waver Gon's determination like Youpi did his and that could get Gon Killed in the eventual fight against Pitou... AMAZING
Reality...
is what we make it to be.

they are showing you what is going on ->at the same time<- to 4-5 different locations
so how is gon supposed to move when he said he will be waiting for one hour? 30-40 minutes have passed till now

The most interesting thing this episode to me was Netero's declaration that "I am thankful for the circumstances that allowed us to meet". This is interesting, because alot of people were killed/severely injured (and in one case possibly driven insane) in this process. I kind of got the feeling in ep 111 that Netero is not quite a totally "good" person and this kind of reinforces that idea. What are other peoples thoughts on this?

Pitou has resolved to kill Gon, but the issue of how to protect and get Komugi to the king looms large. There is alot I am invested in going forward, but Komugi's ultimate fate is something I particularly have my eyes on.

Also, there was some really cool directing this episode. My favorite being the rocks falling in slow motion around the King. The music was fantastic as well.

edit: Also, I wonder what Knuckle was going to say regarding Youpi? Something like "he is a good guy" perhaps. Youpi is a bro, that's for sure. Got a terrible feeling Pouf is going to stab him in the back.

Damn, this shit isn't any kind of joke HxH is reaching it's climax. It looks like Kite might not get healed since Pitou plans to kill Gon now. Also @ Netero VS The King holy shit the king is getting his ass beat lol!! Finishing move coming up! I hope he can take care of things before the Royal Guard shows up.

Loved it, it went from the continuous tension that is Gon and Pitou to the awesome fight between Netero and the King. Looks like this arc is reaching its climax and I can't wait for more.

@ Aichiro

Finish it up before the Royal Guard arrives? I don't think Netero has even so much as scratched the King.

Another epic episode that had me excited the whole time. Gon is such a badass now the way he deduced everything around him like a boss and had pitou frightened. It's just amazing how much he has changed from being childish to someone so serious, I can imagine hisoka drooling if he saw him right now. Netero's heart pose was funny and unexpected, I thought he was about to do some crazy move.

Disappointing. Since the invasion started this is the first episode i did not like. Extremely slow when i thought it would be a bit fast. I hope they will speed up in the next episode. Annoyed when they repeated after the break the same scene we saw in the recap at the start of previous episode. Lastly, i don't know why i can't get used to "riot" as bgm.

Yea agree... But the whole gratitude thing is his source of power.... remember that 10000 punches of gratitude from episode 111.

Fantastic episode as always (although last week's was better).

I was expecting my favorite part of the Netero - Meruem fight; too bad I'll have to wait one more week for that. Netero's attack was as Buddhist - like as always with the lotus and everything. It definitely gives an esoteric feeling to this arc (of which it is already full) and to this fight, in particular.

Nice to see that Pouf's psychological games don't have much of an effect on Gon.

Also, "Killua's voiced feelings for Gon... " - Madhouse, must you try so hard ? XD

I love how Madhouse portrays these tense conversations, it almost felt a bit like Kaiji.
The fight itself in the second half was amazing, but the preview... I have been waiting for this for a long time. I will love to observe the reactions in the next episode :D

For ones I'm like fuck Pitou, Pouf, Knuckle and Gon all I want to see is Netero and Meruem greatness. God that was amazing!! I rewatched the Netero vs Meruem part like 3 times already, that last mission ost is just wow. Loved loved loved this episode!!!

Does anybody know who's in charge of 126? Mai Ishii or Yoshihiro Sugano?

I thought it was magnificent.

But yeah, excellent ep, aside from the few scenes of re-used footage (and in the case of the beginning of Mereum / Netero's fight, the third time).

Next ep will be... something to behold.
