Btw why do people call it hunterpedia.. :P weird


THIS. So much! Just...Why!? I assume that they WATCH the anime, so they can HEAR that the characters literally say: "Huncyclopedia". Which is a simple pun on 'Encyclopedia', no more and no less than that. So why call it something entirely different? It doesn't even sound alike... This confuses me so much, where the heck did it come from? =S

I think it originates from the Hunter x Hunter wiki called Hunterpedia :P but still they can hear the damn word it's not the same!

Great episode and finally the action begins again. However, it just got so much more complicated with the 10 dons and the Shadow Beasts.

I guess they had been saving up all the blood for this. That's one impressive pool of crimson :p

Maybe the lack of blood so far hasn't been as much due to broadcast limitations as something else. After seeing all this death and destruction it feels like this adaption isn't afraid of showing gore, but it only displays it selectively when a particular scene, character or environment wants to be portrayed as particularly brutal (... though that doesn't explain Killua vs Johness which obviously had the purpose to show what killing is to him yet it was extremely clean). Or maybe this inconsistency is just a case of simple shock-tactics, the response is stronger when there's no telling in advance whether the next guy will just fall down dead instantly or bleed out brutally. I wouldn't have minded at least minimal bleeding from wounds though.

5/5 episode. The animation and sound were a bit awkward at times and Worm was the only Shadow Beast with a decent entrance, but this had some big developments at a reasonable pace.

God damn this was epic. I'm both surprised and happy that the episode turned out so violent.

Well hot damn, a blood bath is ensuing and it looks like there's gonna be one hell of a fight coming up. I thought it was especially vicious when that one guy decapitated the surviving mafia member and was like "Family? What's that?"

goodness gracious!! This Phantom Troupe looks to be stupidly powerful! I'm surprised they'd show characters this powerful so soon in the series. This show looks like it could reach DBZ levels of Overpoweredness lol

so he used Ten to block a blast from a bazooka???
Love and Peace!!!

lol a vacuum, ep was fine for the most part, I did thought that the fodder killing was lasting more than necessary, the part that annoyed me was when finally Kurapika was about to face the phantom troupe some group of supposed elite warriors had to appear, like wtf man?
well they could still make some some damage an take down one of the troupe members... nah who am I kidding, ofc they are get get killed

This has to be one of the better episodes in this arc. The auction raid! and you really get a sense of just how lethal the phantom troupe is and that they give no mercy to no one. I really cringed at the sight of shizuku's ability where she sucks up every one like a damn vacuum alive.

It was just a pure slaughter house, such an unpredictable chain of events you never saw coming. I wonder who the culprit is behind the thievery of the merchandise. Now we get to see the shadow beasts\ appear, which is clearly no match for the phantom troupe.

That was messed up, but expected. I hope the Shadow Beasts put up at least some fight.

I have no idea how Kurapika plans on taking down the Phantom Troupe. He would do well to take down one in a 1v1 battle.

Here we go,things are finally beginning.

The intensity this episode was getting my heart racing.

"Family?What's that?"

Urgh,really regretting not download the BDs now :/ Wanted to see that last guy's head get sucked into the vacuum and Feitan beheading that other guy.

Urgh!!!And was just dying to hear the Shadow Beast to tell Kurapika that that's no ordinary band of thieves but Phantom Troupe...

This is really starting to tease me now.

I was totally surprised that it wasn't the Phantom Troupe who stole the auction goods, can't wait to find out who it was. Looking forward to Kurapika's reaction when he finds out who he's fighting.

When those Phantom Troupe members walked out on stage you just knew that all hell was about to break loose. Wish Baise would've lasted longer though because there hasn't been a lot of female characters besides Melody and she doesn't even look like a female lol. Can't wait to see Kurapikas reaction when he finds out that they're the Phantom Troupe.

Damn, that was really a one-sided slaughter. Vezze unit never stood a chance.

The Phantom Troupe sure seem professionnal and prepared. In comparaison, the Mafia security was fucking weak. I would be ashamed. But in the end, someone else had already moved the goods.

Those Beasts from the mafia seem too sure of themself. They're gonna get wrecked.

Baise took the wrong job, her ability would have more useful in a deception job than in a body guard job.

Maybe all this show needs is less Gon? Things are so much better without him in this episode.

People who create Hunterpedia shorts have some twisted sense of humor. I'm not even talking about shota-fanservice. But 'introducing' a character right after she bites the dust? I feel bad for laughing.


It is Han Megumi and Ise Mariya, the voice actresses for Gon and Killua, who create the Huncyclopedia segments. Well, not the animation itself of course, but they come up with the scenario and the lines, and then it is animated according to what they wrote. They do draw the whiteboard doodles themselves. They've talked about this in their weekly radio show and in a special 'behind the scenes' TV program about the new HxH anime.

So make of that what you want... XD


very interesting. cool!

OMG this episode was violent as hell. It seems that from now on this version will be more violent than the old one (and nearly any other shonen anime for that matter). And to think this is broadcasted in Japan on Sunday mornings lol.


hell actually IS violent ya know :p

and not anymore, i believe. i was reading it in a magazine that by the time the ant arc came it was taken off sundays before that point i think.

Not only to you, but to everyone who's been saying "lol it's not canon" about the chibi segments...

I guess it depends on what your definition of 'canon' is, but... The seiyuu are just as much part of the 'official' staff as the animators, scriptwriters, etc... so the chibi segment is just as much 'canon' as the rest of the anime adaptation. It's true that Gumi and Riya are the ones coming up with the scenario for those segments, but as a voice actor you can't just say whatever the heck you want. Before they can animate it and put it in the episode, it first has to be approved by the director and original creator... So if Togashi didn't want it in there, he wouldn't have approved it in the first place. You don't have to like it, but that doesn't mean it's not part of an official production. ^^;


....it was...a kiss .-. that's like saying the "Schwing" that they did before - "IMPLYING THEY ARE GAY FOR THE BOOTY OH LAWD."

firstly, DAT VIOLENCE. why was there no warniiiiing D:.

that pool of blood was too much!
(well this will shut the censor complainers up, that's for sure.) gotta watch out for pika and his reaction.

Damn, that was an intense episode! So cool to actually see the Phantom Troupe in action, nothing less than I expected. My fave so far is Feitan, he has an emo-but-in-a-good-sense vibe <3

The Shadow Beasts' generic character designs screams "I'm gonna get killed next episode" lol.

PS: Can this episode be considered the start of the Yorkshin arc?

I agree Boxer Guy and the little one do look generic, but I found the rest (especially Machi, Feitan, Shizuku and of couse Chrollo) to be well desgined. Certainly more than a human worm or the guy with spiky hair and teeth.
