I don't know if anyone else heard-
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!


Not a strong argument, because many masculine females (tomboys) uses boku.
But Pitou isn't a tomboy nor is he masculine like Biscuit.


What I meant is, there are many other examples of female anime characters that uses boku. Just because Pitou uses boku doesn't automatically mean Pitou is a male. We can't really use that "Boku=male" now because of how things works in anime.

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Bokukko
"While the use of boku most often signals tomboyishness, it can sometimes signal some other situation, such as not knowing correct societal behavior, or lacking polite speech."

Personally, I think of Pitou as a female, because how things end up in the story of the manga.

The family member that I watched this with was speechless after this episode. Neferpitou absolutely TERRIFIED her.

Great episode, agree with the complaint about Neferpitou's entrance music.

Pitou is a trap so what? Big deal, I wouldn't be surprised if Gon turned out to be a trap, that's how this show is, even Togashi himself is a trap.

What does being a specialist entail exactly?

In the previous episodes of HxH it always is described pretty vaguely, and the only one we met up till now are Kurapika and chrollo (or is he a conjurer?).

Does it mean you have access to all the other schools equally, or is it entirely dependant on the character/personality of the specialist itself?

Chrollo is a specialist, and it varies from character to character what they can do. Pakunoda was also a specialist.

And here comes another Specialist; wonder what she'll be able to do. I sense some people dying, I also have a feeling that
Not sure if it's true since I haven't read the manga, but I wouldn't be surprised if he died honestly.

OT:
Slow episode, but pretty good intro for Pitou.

Please just not that. Alluka is female. There's no way she's a trap. Togashi is the biggest troll in the history if he ever decided to make Alluka a guy.

Nice episode, but imo the scene where Neferpitou walks to Rammot would have been perfect with the ost "Requiem Arena"
I hope they will use that ost again

It just keeps getting darker and darker, and I am loving every second of it. My god, Neferpitou is intimidating as hell. I have no idea how Gon and co. are gonna deal with the ants now that they're all most likely gonna have nen now. Absolutely terrifying.

Awesome episode. I can't wait for more.

So what exactly is Pitou? Obviously cat and human... but what else? I mean those kneecaps of her look robotic... did the queen eat a mecha or something...?

Also, apparently they're born with clothes on. Weird. Thought should just mention.

He's an ant as well. Those are joints of an arthropod, not kneecaps.

Yeah, that bit was filler (seeing her/him hatch)
I assumed they take clothes of people that have been turned into meatballs

I think I read somewhere that all Chimera Ants (soldiers and workers) are all males.

And the only female ant is the Queen (are the queens)

Can someone enlighten me on this matter? :/

Female human bodies, right?

I mean, they can't lay eggs like the queen.


Edit:

I read the wiki and it seems that there are really female ants but males will mate with other species? o_0l

It's really amazing how the quality of this show is constantly high, the adaption from manga to anime is so well-done.

On another note, damn, neferpitou is so....creepy. Yet another character added to that pile. ∑(O_O;)

I think Pitou's pretty badass myself, the way he put Rammot in his place as a mere soldier ant like that was just great. Looks like shit's finally starting to get serious.

Brilliant episode!
It was kinda funny how Rammot went from this power hungry beast, to a domesticated dog in like 30 seconds.
Also, really liked how creepy they made Pitou. And now I'm so looking forward for when "that" happens ;)

I'm not sure how many people are thinking about this, but Neferpitou is a Royal Guard, imagine how strong the King will be when he appears.

... just thought I should mention this.

Chrollo, Neon Nostrade and Pakunoda are all specialists.

Specialists are people who can use abilities that do not fit into the other categories. It hasn't really been revealed how there abilities are chosen, but it might be based on ones personality.

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


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


There are no certainties in Nen battles. Also, Chrollo has many Nen abilities stored in his book.

agreed. This anime has already proven this time and time again. Just looking back at Genthru vs Gon fight, a good plan can go a LONG way. The same applies to Hisoka too because if you really think about it, his hatsu is not exactly what you would call overwhelming power.
His craft is in his deception. I mean he did kill a nen master who can tear trees with his bare hands and can create a clone of himself simply by using a long adhesive rubber band and a "camouflaging" piece of paper...

it's amazing how even after 80+ episodes (with no filler) that this series can continue to be exciting week after week. i especially love that it doesn't shy away from the brutal stuff despite being a shounen series
