My favorite line of this episode.
And I quote: "I have trouble dealing with old ladies"--Killua Zoldyck (2014)

I slapped my knee so hard and almost died of laughter. Close call.

...And now, in this episode it states that Alluka is a girl? lol


This can be kind of confusing, but from what I observe Alluka is actually a guy.
If you take a look at last episode pretty much every Zoldyck refers to Alluka as either an object "it" or "him"
a male while Killua refers to him as his little sister or a female.

So the family sees Alluka as what he was born as and pretty much only as a burden or threat while
Killua sees Alluka as who she believes she is or who she "really is" idk kind of confusing but I believe Alluka sees herself as a girl.

Don't know why they showed Kurapika.


Because it will be relevant in the next arc and Leorio was calling him? I mean they showed it in the manga, so I don't see why not.

Another job well done by Madhouse. You can tell how happy Piyon was when Ging got hit by Leorio lol.
Keep on moving forward

Great episode! Leorio was so badass!!

But, Ging is one of the greatest Nen users of the world, he could easily dodge that!! Why did him let Leorio hit him so hard?? I think it's because he wants Leorio to become popular and win the elections???

Great stuff as always, really like how Ging didn't do anything and just let himself be hit. People seem to hate the guy, I guess theres "good" reason but I can't help but like the guy and the fairly epic vibes he gives out by just well... Being there.

But holy shit I can't wait for next weeks episode. Been excited to see that one animated for a fairly long time.

Leorio, that fucking emitter XDDD... I bet he can't learn any other Nen type.

Ging clearly let this punch hit him on purpose.

Next week is gonna be interesting.

According to HxH wiki, "she" is male but for some reason Killua says she's a girl, I don't remember if it was mentioned in the manga or not either.

Tsubone is as weird as always...

They're returning for nothing *facepalm*

Leorio, best HxH character ever XD He makes everything funnier and more enjoyable! *-*

I was waiting for this punch for years and FINALLY I GOT TO SEE IT ANIMATED, thank you everyone in HxH anime staff.

Oh and btw it seems like Togashi took another week off and there's no manga chapter this week... Togashi never stops being lazy, NEVAR.

This has to be the most awesome Leorio scene yet.
Knocking Ging out like that was just amazing.
I've been here way too long...

Leorio and Kurapika!!!
I wasn't expecting a punch and with everyone enjoying too as a highlight!
All those conditions!!! Alluka already making a request and Killua able to "command".
I forgot Leorio was this loud though xD Nice seeing him getting mad at Ging.

Leorio is the MAN....That punch on Ging was epic even though Ging could have easily evaded it if he wanted...

Ging obviously isn't going to win any father of the year awards although he probably doesnt care about that...Nevertheless Ging not visiting Gon is more because he wants Gon to find himself rather than he going to see him....It is similiar with Shanks and Luffy at the end of the Whitebeard vs marines war

I have missed Leorio so much...He had me in stitches in almost every scene he appeared in..

It's hinted that she's transgender; physically a male and psychologically a girl.

Read below for more info:

kcaco said:
Alluka is most likely transgender: biological male, psychological gender identity is female.

copy and modified from the other thread:

Basically it's stated clearly Zoldyck family has five Sons.

In the official Data book:
Alluka is describe as the 4th brother who has yet to appear.
Kalluto is describe as "A boy (shounen) who wears Kimono"
http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=1buhh&s=5

And in the last month JUMP's report on Election Arc anime, Alluka is described "The fourth son in the family". The word is 'male' (男), and when you combine with four it refers to (fourth son), Son. Male. there's no ambiguity whatsoever.
http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2014/06/18/latest-preview-of-next-hunter-x-hunter-anime-arc-designs

Those who are shown calling Alluka male:

1) Illumi, who always refer Alluka as younger brother.

2) Milluki, who also introduce Alluka to a stranger as his younger brother (along with Kalluto, so he called both Alluka and Kalluto male).

3) Mom

4) The butlers called Alluka as Bo-chan "坊ちゃん" , which literally translated as "Young Master", and it's used specifically for male children.
http://www.wordsense.eu/坊っちゃん/
Again there's no gender neutral nor ambiguity in this word, it's only used for male .


Those who are shown calling Alluka female:
Killua...that's it.

He told Gotoh that Alluka is a 'girl" (with quotation mark) and Gotoh is shown sweating and looked troubled.

So if you deduce from the fact that the official statement + Zoldyck family + Butlers called Alluka male, but only Killua called Alluka 'her", Alluka is most likely transgender (born male, psychological female), but since only Killua respects her feelings so only he use the female pronoun.

I heard somewhere that Alluka is female through and through but ''Nanaki''? is male and since everyone but killua thinks Alluka is ''Nanaki'' they refer to her as male.

I see a few possible theories.
a) Alluka is transgender
b) All female Zoldyck siblings are raised as males and henceforth regarded as males (Alluka, Kalluto)
c) Nanika is a boy, and since the Zoldycks see Alluka as Nanika they refer to her as a boy (despite Alluka actually being female)

Hopefully it's elaborated on next arc.

I think he wanted to know if Leorio was strong.

That episode was awesome! Been a while since an episode was this fun. Tbh Leorio's presence is all what makes it hilarious.

Kurapika looked like a guy for once :o

This series is just too epic.

I think that the dark Alluka is the male ego of the normal Alluka who is a girl.

Next episode will be a Hisoka episode :D

can't see the picture, but it ended before showing the last page of 325.

The last 2 episodes have been slow. I hope that will change next week...


It has to be slow considering how close the manga is. Better than filler.
