Great episode, and at least worth the wait.
Great to see these 2 go at it and the new ost completes the scenes very well. Pretty one-sided but still great to see.

Popular weapon of dictatorships aye? Drop a nuke on 'em never stops being a solution apparently.
"Let Justice Be Done!"

My Theme
I conclude that this theme is in fact good!

Darkbento they could have just nuked the whole damn place without sacrificing any hunters. Seems rather inconsistent to send the best hunters on a suicide mission if they planed to bomb the king from the get go...[/quote said:


1. i dont think the government is even capable of knowing that this was a "suicide" mission

2. the hunters are getting paid to do it and even without money they want to save million of lives

3. why you care only for the hunters? you saw how many innocent people are gathered outside the palace

4. netero wanted to fight even though he knew he cant even beat pitou

5. they are trying to win this with the lowest body count possible (at least the hunters i dont think the government cares for innocent lifes real life or anime :P)

Why not use Palm, she got to the castle before the 5 millions people were near the place. Why not putting a Rose inside her and destroy everything at that moment. I guess Netero's selfishness was that strong.

Well, technically, there has to be at least a few hookers among the 5 million, so i guess you ought to save em too :D

But on a more serious note, the humans where exposed to mass destruction weapons only once the king was at the palace and the ants started gathering them there. If i can clearly remember, before and shortly after the king was born, they still remained at the chimera ants nest, wich was occupied only by humans who were either already dead or about to get eaten. So why didn't they use a bomb at that time ? That place seemed far enough away from any civilization to avoid unnecessary casualties.

But instead of that Netero & crew were just playing guerrilla around for weeks if not months.

Maybe one of the hookers was supposed to seduce the King, and maybe infect him with AIDS, that should have been plan A


Too legit dude.

5 is so true... but if they had done that we wouldn't have gotten a great anime to watch, so well, no point to bitch around i guess. Still as i stated before, the fact that they used a bomb in the end downplays the whole thing.

I don't agree that the bomb thing was an asspull, but for god's sake, guys, stop insulting the guy for liking Naruto Shippuden. You're just throwing a bunch of ad hominems all over him and not making your stances look any brighter.

Because back then the plan wasn't completely laid out, that's what palm was for.
And they did not know what/who was in the palace for sure.

And you seemed to forget the fact that he did not go in there being 100% of death, he did say "Zero did not work out?" as in, the Nuke was not their first option.

Netero had to sacrifice someone, and it was himself. The facts show he is still selfish, but more of the "make the best of this moment" selfish rather than Jeopardize the whole mission for giggles selfish.

And then there's the location, the ecosystems affected, by the bomb or the radiation.

Yeah, awesome, pretty much like the challenge he set to Meruem was similar to the tornament in the Hunter Exam (make your opponent admit defeat without killing him).

Netero said he wanted to minimise casualities and he was also the one assigned this mission. He probably hoped he could just kill the king on his own but decided to have a plan B which is the bomb. I don't think there is any inconsistency there.

The only ways to kill the king for sure is a one to one fight with the best hunter who is also the most competent person to carry that bomb (We saw already that Palm failed to kill herself in front of the Ants). Nuking the palace would have failed if for some reason, the King decided to go out for a walk or so :D.

smart guy...so Palm's life is meaningless? you know king was playing chess with komugi in the castle all the time,but Palm knew nothing.Palm had no idea where king was.....you can't plan everything with your god perspective. no more afterthoughts plz

Eyup, my bad, i guess i've a too strong tendency to want to nuke everything... but i maintain that they could have obliterated the ants nest before things got too shaby.

Holy crap. This episode was amazing, I was surprised that Meruem was actually scared. Can't wait for the other fights though, R.I.P Netero :'(

Okay but how is using a nuke testing site, over an environment not convincing, though? Or the undeniable fact that Netero DID have other plans prior to resorting to The Rose? I'm just curious.

They left the nest the same day and the hunters needed prep time. It's not like Netero carries a nuke 24/7.

hi guys, since ep 126 is way too awesome, and even more than that is the news of HXH returning in June, I have to register one account to join this party here.

By the way, the discussion about asspull or not is quite funny. This might not be related at all, but

in chapter 14 Netero refused to use his right arm and left legs in his challenge for Gon and Killua (he had to use his other arm later in the same chap though)
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-mx7mQF3DTe8/TmNLHZqe0pI/AAAAAAAABbw/MWW3ZNe6Jp8/002.jpg?imgmax=3000

then in chapter 297, he lost his left arm and right leg in his once in a lifetime duel with Ant King, then later he had to pierced through his hear with his right arm.

Can't believe that most of the fight took under one minute!!!
Netero was awesome... his undying heart and his strong resolve...
I was sad that even the zero hand didn't work but it failing made it that much better.
The rose bomb... so Meruem was the one that was fell for the trap. Netero's last word about humanity having infinite possibilities!
I haven't felt so hyped in a while now. This fight was beyond awesome.
And here I thought that at the beginning of this arc that this would been not that good.
I was proven wrong very soon. Netero... he was really awesome. The zero hand attack was really strong. Meruem is too tanky >.<

and how is naruto relevant to HxH? If you're going to discuss at least do it maturely

How was this shit writing?
because they could have nuked the castle from the very beginning, before the invasion

Netero didn't even need to die
And where's the fun to that, for Netero?

"Meruem, King of Ants, you understand nothing of humanity's infinite potential for evolution." I really loved that line. Netero had a lot of awesome lines, come to think of it.


Is that the translation?
In the manga, the lines has a double meaning that's lost in translation:
the original line is:
"Meruem, King of Ants, you understand nothing of humanity's bottomless capability for malice."
(here's the line: 人間の底すら無い悪意")

Malice (in kanji) as the BIG type, while evolution (also in kanji) is a small print in place of the usual hiragana syllabary that usually accompanied the kanji.

I take a look and notice most of the western scanlation also only choose 'evolution' as translation.
While in Japanese, the word "MALICE" is the actual keyword that's in lots of discussion, and the one major keyword for one of the major theme of Chimera Ant arc.

The line "人間の底すら無い悪意" (humanity's bottomless capacity for malice) is a lot more negative than "humanity's infinite potential for evolution"

I just wonder if the western readers has been missing something all these years as oppose to Asian fans. "Humanity's bottomless capacity for malice" was a meme or sort on 2ch, etc. And I wonder why western translator chose to highlight it in a positive spin?

Netero's creepy smile and the line "humanity's bottomless capacity for malice" has haunted me (and a lot of readers I'm sure) for a long time. I'm puzzled that the English translation chose a positive spin instead.

Np the bomb thing I can sorta understand but it wasn't a creative way to end the king at all. They could've just done that from the begining, it downplays the whole arc, fuck the dragon dive, drop a nuke and exterminate them fucking ants. No need for all the shit that's happened so far.



Thanks for killing everyone in the castle with your plan.
Those bombs are designed for the very purpose of wiping millions of innocents, a few idiots in a castle don't mean shit when we're talking about the survival of a whole species.


So basically your reasoning is "They shouldn't give a fak about 5 million people and Nuke the stupid castle from the beginning"..... Seems legit.... I would like to see that happening in real world too.... Easy as fak!!!!

Well, I lost some brain cells and have to go find them... good luck and best wishes.
It already happens, what do you think a nuke is for? Why would they hesitate to use it against such a threat when they usually do it casually with the stakes nowhere near as high. Also they could've done it before mtfs gathered, all you needed was Knov's ability to teleport the bomb days before. Like it or not but Togashi pulled some fairy tail shit here. I could've skipped everything from the moment the king was born to this episode and it wouldn't make a difference. Have fun finding your brain cells.


The best thing I can say to answer your statement is to keep watching, around episode 131or 132 will give the reason why using the Rose in the palace instead of the testing ground isn't a smart thing to do, that's all I can say without spoiling
No, they can just make that place a forbidden done but the ants would've been gone without any fucking effort. Why bring supernatural shit in the first place if technology is superior? As someone said before this is shit writing and I agree.

Anyways, my two cents:

Why are we assuming the Ant King is dead? Do consider just how powerful his existence is.

If the purpose of the "asspull" is supposedly to make it possible to kill the Ant King, what if he actually survives it? Then you can't argue that it's asspull for the sake of asspull. That might make Netero's motivation clearer - he was going to die bomb or no bomb, so in such a case, it might be good to take everyone's foreshadowing points seriously. Also, if you guys are going to argue foreshadowing, present more than one line and make the connection.

Now, if he *is* dead, it'll be a much harder arguement.

So true,(in my eyes) at least HxH percentage isn't so high.

Malice actually makes more sense than evolution in the context of the arc, since as you said, that's one of the themes of the arc. Thank you for the explanation.

Amazing episode. Netero was such a bad ass in this episode. Losing a leg and arm but still continues to fight.
That zero hand attack was awesome but still was not enough against the King.
The King was bad ass as well. Being able to withstand all those attacks and launch straight into a counter attack.
That miniature rose was a massive explosion.

Anyways, my two cents:

Why are we assuming the Ant King is dead? Do consider just how powerful his existence is.

If the purpose of the "asspull" is supposedly to make it possible to kill the Ant King, what if he actually survives it? Then you can't argue that it's asspull for the sake of asspull. That might make Netero's motivation clearer - he was going to die bomb or no bomb, so in such a case, it might be good to take everyone's foreshadowing points seriously. Also, if you guys are going to argue foreshadowing, present more than one line and make the connection.

Now, if he *is* dead, it'll be a much harder arguement.

Well..

They would still raise the same argument. Don't even try. It's just a waste of time. (yet a lot of people are still wasting their time on such pointless "arguments)

Or, if you completely disagree with me, or even find my statements completely inane, argue me! I don't bite or get mad if you have a completely different take on the writing than me or other people do.

Great respect for Netero. R.I.P :(
I think Meruem died too.
