I just love how, almost exactly when he found out about Meruem's memory loss, Pouf went right after Komugi. To me, that was a great moment because it puts into play what I consider to be the best relationship in the arc and Pouf's jealousy of it. In fact, I'm finding it hard to believe that Togashi ever even planned on killing Meruem via the bomb. Thinking about it, there would have been alot of loose ends if that had worked.

I thought it might happen before, but the scene with Meruem stopping his tail short of penetrating Pouf's skull for lying makes me think that he will find out the devious butterfly's plan and kill him for it. I just hope he doesn't find out after the damage has been done. So to speak.

Guys, how do you think this arc will end if that really was nuclear bomb that exploded into king's face?

I dony think it was gay at all, the whole point was the unconditional love that the ants had for their king, in fact i believe real ants behave like that for their queen. Anyone know how many episodes are left for this arc? i heard 12 episodes

Terrible episode. The royal guards are completely devoted to their king. We get that. It's been established. Why did we get an episode almost entirely dedicated to the topic this late in the story? And Meruem is practically immortal. Great.... So as a villain or an ally, he is broken. No matter where the story goes after this arc. I'll be thinking: what is Meruem doing right now? Why is he playing gungi with Komugi when he should be pwning this new villain?

And I've been visiting this thread for a long time now. So frequents should know I don't bash every episode I don't like. This is actually the first time I posted a semi-rant about Hunter x Hunter 2011. It was just a bad episode.

The first half of this episode was so weird. I questioning what i was watching while watching the first half of this episode. Overall, it was an okay episode. Great animation, and nice build up for the next episode.

It would be inconsistent to establish something and not act upon it. Showing is important after telling us. This is the most crucial moment of their relationships.

Well, he was effectively dead if not for the royal guard "feeding" themselves to him. It's not like he walked out like he did by his own power and, like TonyTonyStark said, it is much more effective to see the depths of the Guard's devotion than to just hear about it.

Also, worrying about what he may or may not do after this arc is a bit premature. We have, what, eight episodes left? Who the hell knows what will happen from now on? I've mentioned a few other possibilities, but what if the government goes extreme and decides to bombard the palace with bombs, for example? Maybe they think the risk of having a Chimera Ant King around is too much and consider the possibility of killing no telling how many humans is worth it.

I think it's pretty apparent the Human's as a species has no desire to co-exist and/or bow down to a superior being. And, for that matter, we don't know how Meruem will act once he gets to the palace. Again, what if Komugi is killed before he can meet her for example?

I haven't read the manga but it's looking like Meruem is being set up to be a Raizen type character from YYH and is probably headed for a similar fate.

He won't be immortal if he stops eating humans/starves to death.

Is that so? If that's what you wish to believe, I'm happy for you.

@insane, about that cannibalism part, Meruem ate Peggy and Turtle ant remember?

Nah, I'm with you completely on all that and I think all of that made sense given what we know about Meruem's ability.

I was talking about how it was handled. I mean, the guy had to know showing Youpi and Pouf basically having an orgasm was going to rub some people the wrong way. I actually love that he apparently didn't give a shit, though.

Neither did Madhouse, or the voice actors. In fact they seemed to be having fun!

Oh yeah, you can tell that Madhouse and the VA's just ran with it. Obviously this episode was one of things they had in mind when they switched to late night.

Yes course Togashi could have go the safer, conventional 'proper' way with just have them feeding 'properly' with 'proper' happiness. But screw being safe and conventional and sensitive! He want to go all out to depict what 'absolute orgasmic ecstasy" would be like. No holding back.

I think most Western audience are not familiar with the "food manga genre" cliche and tropes, so they can't connect what the scene is parodying about. I'm talking about manga like Chūka Ichiban, that often feature scenes where a food taster ate something heavenly delicious, and they went on an 'orgasmic rant' internally with heaven, angels background behind them...and say stuff like "what am I to do if I would never be able to taste this deliciousness again!!?!?"

The movie God Of Cookery parodied the same thing (with almost the same line).

And predictably of course there'd be so many butthurt boys yelling 'disgusting' 'worst thing ever" "my straightness is uncomfortable!!" (same reaction when the manga came out years ago) lol. so cliche.

Interestingly enough, orgasmic ecstasies are described (sometimes, extremely graphically) a lot in some eastern religions and mysticism. In most cases, the cause is completely non-sexual; just, as they say, extreme love (not necessarily romantic) for God. They see it as a natural consequence of humans coming into contact with a transcendental entity. In fact, to reach such a state is considered to be nearing to perfection in those religions.

The point is that such emotions need not be sexual or erotic of any sort -- homo or hetero. As I see it, the RG's display of such emotions in connection with Meruem is not really out of character -- it fits Meruem's God-like character. Not that I have anything against homo-eroticism (I don't. In fact, I interpret Killua, my all time fave, to be romantically in love with Gon), but calling Youpi or Pouf as ants which are gay for their King seems somewhat out of character IMO.

Neither, he's much stronger than when he fought Netero since he ate Youpi and Pouf he's basically a fusion of those two + himself and he has his own version of their abilities.
