THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------


Still want to be the King? Rammot?

So we're reintroduced to the concept of how the user's will can affect Nen. Imposing your intent on someone can even be deadly and Rammot felt that first hand. With his new found aura, it made him conceited only for him to realize his place when Neferpitou's Nen touches him. I've always liked this part about the Nen system in particular and this'll be highlighted a lot more moving forward.

To hammer the concept again but more likely to fill the episode they show the same thing happen to Hagya with Kite's Nen intimidating him. Hagya's supposed to be the head of the food chain but here he's fearful of 3 humans which is shameful for a lion. At least he's a rational thinker now that he's a Chimera Ant


Um......

What a way to go Pokkle, wasn't expecting him to be naked like the manga and thank the lord we didn't see his brain silhouette. Atmosphere was still spot on with the sound effects and his twitching. Nice touch with the crimson lighting

Satisfied with what I saw however I would've chosen a different track for Pitou's stride. I get what the piece does with the slow crescendo building up the tension, they did the same thing with Kurapika when he overwhelms Zenji in Yorknew, however I think Pitou's walk could've had more impact than it did

Other Thoughts

Some filler this episode but it helped to build the story and tie up things that weren't explained. Pitou finally comes out and she's a specialist.

Next week is going to be really interesting.

Good episode and indeed Neferpitou shows up:


Dat face, ears, and tail. Btw, is Neferpitou a male or female?
Whatever the case though, it seems to be badass. Next week should be good with more Kite action as well.

Male, but some may argue that he's a female.
Though MH might change it female.

Yeah, even in the manga it's confusing since some chapters say "he" or "she" I think there were different translator for it.
But on a few sites it says Male.
I'm hoping the anime can give us some closure.

You quoted the wrong person here. I never said that in my original post.

Anyways, I just checked the wiki and seems to be ambiguous so also hoping the anime will shed light on this soon too.

Even though I've already read this part of the manga, the anime still did a great job in making me feel nervous and anxious when Pitou appeared.

But when Neferpitou goes to try the water divination, I swear Pitou says 'Boku' (ぼく) when referring to themselves, quite clearly?
Boku is a male pronoun!

A great episode - I had definitely been anticipating this one and it did not disappoint. Glad to finally see Neferpitou get introduced. I enjoyed his scene with Rammot where the latter realizes that he is just not King material. Also, as dark as it is, I love how they tease the fact that Pokkle is alive... only for that to be quickly subverted as he ends up suffering a pretty horrible fate.

Anyway, next episode should also be very good. It looks as if they plan to show
as well - I think it's an interesting choice for them to do that now rather than include it earlier; but it will be nice to see regardless.

The only thing I really give a fuck about from this episode is Neferpitou but that's really all there needed to be. I geeked out pretty hard seeing it finally introduced.

Neferpitou was introuduced, holy shit. I love her VA already, they moe'd the shit out of him/her

We got to see a naked Pokkle getting his brain probed, the music for that was great as always

Another thing I should praise is Neferpitou's character design. It's effective at both letting your guard (Honestly it is kind of cute) and freaking the hell out of you.

Loved the episode, I was looking forward for this episodes. I was so freaked out by this part of the manga.

Can't wait for next week!

Yeah, it was nicely done, as soon as Pitou came out Rammot was quickly oppressed by Pitous aura.

Man anyone feel for Pokkle?! Sucks man, I'm sure he was concealing his aura...not well enough. I thought it was a little lame that the antennas ripped from some drone were used to force information out like that. Aside from that...great episode.

Yes he refers to himself as boku in the manga too, in many occasion. The translation I read (Chinese versions) all use 'he'. So I just always thought of him as male

Looks like Royal Guards are in a whole another league compared to other ants. I admit I had slight hope Pokkle would get away lol.

As I don't think you understood what happened. Neferpitou ripped a hole open in his head and was using the antennas as needles to poke the parts of brain that would make him tell them about Nen.

Well....Neferpitou definitely didn't fail to live up to expectations. Damn, talk about fucking creepy. Most intimidating character in the series thus far. What he/she did to Pokkle? And, the way they did the eyes with the whole zooming in and distortion? God damn.

Loved the teaser of the King.

Neferpitou is also the most powerful character seen so far. She is much stronger then both Chrollo and Hisoka.

Zetsu doesn't necessarily make it impossible to be detected, only difficult for most. Someone who's highly perceptive can still detect someone who's mastered Zetsu. A previous example would be Hisoka detecting Kalluto after the dodgeball game in the GI arc. With Neferpitou, as you'll learn throughout the arc...

1v1 Pitou should win. If both Chrollo and Hisoka combined, the royal guard is in trouble.

finally pitou spawned at the anime <3

I know how ambiguous his/her gender is but I think the anime finally give us light about his/her gender:


someone think it's a male because she used 'boku'?
come on guys... it's already common sense that some female refer herself with 'boku', that's what you call a tomboy duh

Damn. Neferpitou looks so intimidating. If he's that strong, I wonder how stronger the King will be.
Poor Pokkle, beiing controlled like that.

Wow what an amazing dark episode, it hurt just watching. Pokkle was probably already dead when they probed him.

Not a strong argument, because many masculine females (tomboys) uses boku.

But Pitou isn't a tomboy nor is he masculine like Biscuit.
