Nen looks pretty much like haki in one piece, but more explained! =)

The explanation of Nen wasn't so confusing here. In fact, it was rather simple. Either I didn't pay attention the first time around, or it was the previous adaptation's fault. In any case, it gets more complicated and interesting later on in the series.

Something else I missed, unless, again, it was because of the previous adaptation: Hisoka's motivations. In a way he's helping Gon and Killua by preventing them from accessing the 200th floor. Without Nen they would be completely screwed. So, hey, they should thank Hisoka. =)

Anyway, just adds another layer to Hisoka's mystique.

Great episode 5/5

The part with Wing showing his killing intent was awesome.
Here we understand how Hisoka can kill with playing cards.
Hisoka is back. :D
I liked Nen's explanation.

I love how they make Killua feel like the leading character who calls the shot with Gon being the one backing out. Not the typical ballsy character who would overcome the aura and make it to the reception desk.


In fact, after Gon saw Hisoka, Gon was walking more easily than Killua

Awesome episode.
His explanation about the power is cool. Interesting that Hisoka prevents them from going into the hall.
5/5

Oh Hisoka, you're everywhere now! Things are getting more and more interesting now with the Nen powers, I wonder if Wing is one of the floor masters.

All the different parts of Nen are a lot easier to understand after watching the first anime. Was pretty confusing when it was first introduced.

omg when the teacher threw the paper into the wall i felt very validated because ive been complaining about hisoka's lame ass cards this whole time ("they're just cards! how the hell are they lethal!") and now its not a weird illogical thing but rather a part of the nen system

So now we know how Hisoka manages to use cards as weapons and also about his aura xD What I would like to see is a showdown between Hisoka and that teacher xd but I know it won't happen. I'm interested in Hisoka's past now though, like who trained him or did he train himself and what happened to him. Was he always this strong or was he the target of someone else who was waiting for him to "ripen" but Hisoka ended up killing that someone? I want some flashbacks but I know I won't get them anytime soon..

I'm a bit lost when it comes to this Nen stuff... it's really confusing right now...

I really like the new ED! for some reason it reminds me of Iron Maiden... not sure why.

Damn great animation on showing the nen training. LOL killua's like fck this shit, im out of here.

Well that must explain why Hisoka's cards can cut through anything.

So this is where they introduce and explain the concept behind this version of the shows latent power like chi also called nen that will become a major focus in the future of the series moving forward.

Well, I suppose my main question would be using the aura with benevolent intent rather than malicious intent. What happens?

Anyway, I hope they don't over-complicate it. I don't mind having rules applied to the usage, so long as they don't keep piling them on.

I think Hisoka showed up again too quickly, but at least we know why his cards are so deadly now.

Killua's looks are always badass.

I'm looking forward to Nen, hope it's a good system. Gotta commend the show though, it had a LOR of variety before a power system came along, if this improves it then shit is gonna be craaazy.

I'm not really enjoying how they're using "muderous intent" as some kind of palpable force. Pure bullshit imo, but whatever.

This is starting to get superficial...

Knew Hisoka could use Nen when the glasses guy used the book page as a blade ~> Hisoka's cards. And wow, only 3.5 hours to train yourself to manipulate your soul's life force.

Man, Wing bill is gonna be high as fuck if he continue to destroy his room...
In any case, that dude makes me unconfortable. He's awesome, with his lazy look and his overly kind behavior, but I feel he's not simply a teacher, or rather, he hasn't always been a teacher.

The Nen thing remind me of the overdrive from JoJo x)
It looked weird at first glance, but with its multiple use, it become suddenly more interesting.

This Nen stuff is actually pretty interesting but I feel like there should have been bigger hints to it in the first arc because its really feeling like they just pulled these abilities out of their ass.

The hints were enormous, lol. Especially the end of Hunter Exam, wait till you finish this arc, then you'll get it.

For such a long-running and typical shounen series HxH is so awesome. I can't wait to see the next episode. Also the whole Nen thing is really well thought out.


that's just it. it's not your typical shounen! :) that's why HXH'11 is on the list of top anime, not shounen anime.

oh shoot, this is when things get real. obviously that aura reminded him of illuminati. it was so realistic, it even shut him up for a while, so what did he ever do to him (or not) that makes killua pee himself?

also LOVED that tune that played when killua came down from the wall.

i'll say it once and i'll say it again - i can marathon this all day XD

i know it was an ep ago but you gotta love killua in rage mode.


although he didn't have to do that to him! he's just a cute little boy... D:

I was hoping wing would also teach them some martial arts while they're at it. Gon now has tremendous physical strength, but no combat skills to use it with. Shoving people isn't always going to be enough. I also really don't trust wing; hisoka showing up out of the blue to present an obstacle that can only be overcome with nen is far too convenient, and wing working with hisoka can only be bad for gon.

I think they explained NEN better here in 2011.

The art also improved compared to prevoious episodes.

LMAO at Killer in the corner of the wall.

HISOKA! I like his new outfit more than the old one.

Damn. DAT AURA!

Why the hell does the receptionist look so tired? Whats her work schedule? lol

Will Gon and Killer learn Nen before midnight? Find out next time on Hunter x Hunter x Z.

I can see the pattern here... Wherever Gon and Killua go. Hisoka will always be there. That's creepy but pretty cool at the same time.

If Gon and Killua can master the basics of nen in like 3 hours. Then imagine how powerful they'll be when they're adults!
OwO

It is. That's its demographic. As many mature elements this show has, it's mainly immature, as problems are solved through use of super-powers (whose most involve direct confrontation); it's more adequate to teens, then.

This episode was very important to the plot. The Heaven's Arena is underrated IMO.

Wing's teaching of nen to Gon and Killua was vital to the progression of the plot. Without nen, they would get their asses kicked by other hunters.

Keep calm and learn the four main principles of NEN: Ten, Zetsu, Ren, and Hatsu.

5/5

So they will learn Nen in 3 hours.I know I shouldn't expect an anime to be realistic but this is just total insanity and how can a contestant stop other contestants from even participating in the tournament.This is mind boggling stuff.
