Gyro's backstory was simply amazing. That black and white was well done.

In the process of rewatching the series because I didn't pay attention to the little details last time. Okay so my question is:
Was Gyro's backstory only made to show us about why Gyro was making these guns, drugs and controlling NGL. Or did it also symbolize that he was reborn as a Chimera Ant? If he was, my wild guess would be Yunju?

I hate that gunslinger ant that killed Ponzu. The worst thing that happened was that gunslinger grunt ate her, there goes the possibility of an ant born with her genes and some of memories by the Queen. Another thing when Gon & Killua found her remains they didn't even think a sec that it was Ponzu that died ;-;

I am pretty sure Gon understood who that was.

Man, this episode was fucked up! Didn't expect them to kill Ponzu off like that, brutal af.

Not to mention the first part with the flashback/backstory on Gyro's cruel past, amazing episode nonetheless.

I don't get why they'd put a 1/2 episode length flashback about a character we haven't seen... and I also think I've seen the whole "the world doesn't care about me" thing in too many shonens by now. Not that it was done poorly or anything, it's just really cliche at this point.

The thing about Gyro is, the anime didn't show what happened afterward to him, in the manga we see that he became a Chimera Ant, and he had such a strong will that he didn't feel any loyalty to the queen and left immediately, then there was some foreshadowing that he will meet Gon at some point(some even speculate that he will be the final villain of the series).

Oh wow, so if they continue the HxH anime, we can expect to see him?? That would be pretty cool. They did imply that he became a chimera ant this episode though, when the big crocodile looking dood said "I should have just eaten him myself" it implies the queen ate him and therefore he's a chimera ant. So I guess they are saving him for later like you said.

This is bs, the Best girl died, rather had the 2 kid mcs die instead tbh, so the real 4 mcs of Leorio, Kurapika, ponzu and Machi can take over

This is... wow.. what's with the sudden brutality?!

Darned Killua getting greedy in the Hunter Exam and beating everyone up. Maybe Ponzu would have taken a different path and her fate would have altered had he not gone that far. He's like my favorite character in the series but.. fucking hell T_T poor Ponzu...

RIP Ponzu :'(
at least one of her bees got to Kite

it's strange because at the Hunter exam, she says that her bees naturally attack anyone nearby if she's startled and we saw her stumble and fall before, yet no bees flew out of her hat and attacked the chimera ants :/ so does it only apply to humans? Weird.

I wanna see that Gyro guy as an adult :0 that kind of childhood is total trash and I feel bad for him. He's definitely very corrupted now. More so than that scissors murderer guy.

but lol at that kawaii spider ant. Reminds me of that kawaii titan hahhah. He's a cute idiot who seems to worship Zazan lmao

I think only Colt has some lingering personality traits of Kurt (even the name sounds like a derivative of the same thing) because his strong sense of justice and feelings of wanting to protect Reina were so strong that it's embedded into Colt as a chimera ant. It's quite fascinating. I wonder if Kurt's human memories will eventually flow into Colt because as of right now, he's subconsciously recalling these memories. Didn't even know he called out Reina's name til it was pointed out by the bookworm chimera ant and he reflected on it afterwards.

Hopefully nothing bad happens to Colt because out of all the ants, he exhibits the most humanity and sympathy. Or if he has to die, then I hope he receives a fitting, beautiful, serene death (just like Pakunoda's) because he has kindness instilled within him from Kurt.

This was brutal. I did not expect Ponzu to get killed off like that. That Ant popped a cap in her head and then eat her up voraciously 0_0.

RIP Ponzu

That flashback of the NGL underground leader is really great! However, will they be of any importance to this arc? Because I'm sure the queen will just eat him.

Ponzu and that guy are dead, but Gon, Killua, and Kite are here, so the next episode should be amazing.

- omgg Ponzu's death was brutal :( it's one thing to shoot her once but why did that Chimera Ant have to shoot her a bunch of times?!!! ugh, I honestly wish Gon and his current group are able to capture that Chimera Ant and kill him! I was so sad to see Ponzu die--I liked her!

- PLS LET POKKLE SURVIVE!! You already took out three people in his group, pls don't let him die too T.T Hopefully Gon and the team are able to save him in time!

- the part I found interesting in this episode is that one scene with Colt and how he randomly blurted out Reina's name without thinking. I'm guessing he's able to remember his previous life as Kurt then? I'm interested to see where that goes!!

4/5! -- I originally gave this a 5/5 in the poll but, after writing this review and thinking about it, I have to give it a 4/5. I'm sorry, but Ponzu's death literally tore me apart T.T If her death broke me, and she's not even in my top favorite characters list of this series (though I still love her and that's why I felt so much when she died), I'm just imagining how it would feel if my said favorite characters of this series did die...gahhh...I don't want to imagine!

I... I was always happy when I saw Ponzu because she was a really interesting character in the Hunter exam arc (one of the most interesting, also the only female that went to far). She didn't pass because she was out and Gon got her tag, but otherwise she probably would. When I saw her in the new Hunter exam I was excited, thought she would pass. But then Killua stole all the glory.

Anyway, I was happy that she was being remembered. When I saw her in this arc I hoped that she wouldn't be killed, but after her relationship with forgot-his-name was shown, my gut feeling told me that she would end up dead, and here it is. Brutal. Murdered and eaten. God, I fucking hate insect-chimeras.

Anyway, Gon didn't say anything, but we could see in his face that he knew that it was Ponzu's blood and clothes (also bees). HxH doesn't have that many amazing female characters (Bisky in the last arc and Machi/glasses-san/Pakunoda in the phantom arc) so I really liked Ponzu and expected a lot of her.......................... But yeah. You can't really expect who Togashi is going to kill next, I guess. I also liked that girl with the kissing nen ability, but she also died just like that. Ughhhh

Holy F*ck that was bloody dark, that ending especially :| shame to see those two be pretty much scrapped and pretty much killed of directly, even more so a whole proper backstory for a character that doesn't even say anything. Pretty interesting buildup yet very dark. It's a shame that this is so censored.

The whole Chimera Arc has been creepy and brutal, so far.
First, Kurt and Reina (episode 77) and then, Ponzu :'( I didn't expect that. How could they do that to Ponzu?! She got eaten after multiple shot.

The Gyro flashback was probably the best thing this show had offered in 80 episodes. And that flashback has almost nothing to do with the overall story.
And later on the episode, the guy get his face eaten and then happy battle music starts playing? That was just terrible directing. At least they made ponzu death more dramatic by not putting any soundtrack. Also, the way this episode have ended has given me hope that the show will start taking things more seriously and will provide moments with tension

You've already seen one of the best parts of the show.
There's no scene comparable to it until episode 120 or so.
This arc has the best moments in the show but the arc drags like hell.
HxH isn't that great. It's just very old (this anime is a remake) so it has a lot of fans already there overrate it. It was pretty original for its time and inspired some anime that came after it I'll give it that.

My thoughts, precisely. Episodes between 80-120 are too slow and there are some minor logic gaps. However, this arc contains the best moments in the entire series. HxH is pretty good but it is a bit overrated as you said. Nonetheless, it is still one of my favourite animes.

Also Ponzu's meat would be really tasty like medium rare steak although it's not even cooked, what a lucky mfuxker chimerant.

I don’t get why some of the soldiers don’t even get ant genes anymore, some of them were like full animals that could just speak. And also, I don’t get why they can use nen or Gyo. Huhuhuhu I don’t get why they are soo strong huhuhu 😭
