Doesn't go into a lot of details, but a good overview recap to spam whenever we get an announcement.

My personal recap of the arc from the top of my head:

- 3 princes dead so far;
- Halkenburg is now a threat;
- Muderhorse prince is crazy op;
- Theta is fucked;
- Kurapica lost years while sleeping;
- Spiders and Mafia are making moves;
- Indian looking prince is adopted/son of the king's mafia brother;

Watching this, man I miss HxH so much nothing comes close and what's crazy is this has the potential to be the best arc yet.

Hmm, I was under the impression that both Benjamin and Camilla were nen users before the ceremony.

Okay good, that guy's just wrong then xD
Let's not forget that time before the ceremony when Benjamin was choking a lion while on the phone, a lion that couldn't even scratch him and that was then decapited by him. And his nen power conditions take years of preparation and guards develpment to make it worth it. Camilla on the other hand has been building a suicide nen army for years now specifically for the ceremony.

Yeah, Benjamin choking out a Lion was one of the most rediculous things in the manga. Just looked so fucking bizarre, like is this what the Princes do in their downtime? They're all fucked up

Yeah also Benjamin was already a nen strategist and Camilla has clearly been using her nen beast for a long time.

I’ll watch it one of these days if it ever gets added to a streaming service.

I've only seen the first few episodes of the 99 series. I'm contemplating picking it back up since I need something to watch and I haven't seen the 2011 series in a bit.

I was wondering re: the Chimera Ant Queen- do you think there was some foul play at hand with her being dropped off at the NGL?

She's larger than any known chimera ant- as the ones Kite shows gon and killua are regular ant sized. She seems to somehow have humanoid dna- was she genetically engineered? And she's injured when she apppears at the NGL- so she encountered something before she washed up.

Furthermore, isn't it convinient she washed up on the one country in the world that's a neo-luddite community with no technology- the perfect area for her to feed and get completely out of control without the hunter organization being able to intervene early?

And didn't, at the end of it all Pariston end up with all the chimera ant eggs?

IMO the chimera ants were an inside job!! by pariston probably!! maybe using stolen chimera ant stuff from a previous continent expedition

Eh. Probably set in a such remote area by Togashi so he wouldn't have that many variables to worry about/deal with.

I'd always welcome more Pariston involvement, but if you push that kind of stuff too far, it can start to feel kinda contrived.

My original read on the arc is "this was an unfortunate coincidence" and also "this was a brilliant bit of writing" because I think it's a great plot thread in that the ants only get as bad as they do because of this unfortunate things that happen that cause the colony to get more and more out of control (isloation + lack of technology + violent humans to inherit aggression from via the mafia) but if you look in that her placement may have been deliberate by someone who wanted to breed powerful chimera ants for their own amusement... the conditions are perfect for something like that.

Maybe on a macro scale it was a plot to get rid of netero!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There's something about this show that happens to me.

Whenever I come across screenshots or art or something of these characters, I'm so intrigued. Like I want to know what they do next, to a degree that I have with no other show.

I don't know if it's just that the dang thing is unfinished, but I feel like Togashi is somehow so good at creating these interesting characters with super compelling dynamics between other characters and the world at large. I didn't really realize it much as I was going through the series, but as there's been some breathing room since I was first introduced to them and their initial conflicts, I look back on it a bunch of these characters like woah

Honestly, that's likely why it's constantly on break.

Togashi and GRRM would probably love to have a drink together lol

GRRM:"Oh so you added a hundred characters and a dozen factions to your long running series too?"

Togashi:"Yeah I just started killing them all when I forgot what all their names were"

GRRM:"Hah me too!"

Except Togashi also added weird powers on top of it, so it's extra complicated lol

Always funny to see some people say, "Well, I guess he came back cuz he needs some more money."

Nah, I think he's good there lol.

And the more I look at his 390 comment, the more I hope it was mistranslated. That "soon" hits hard. :p
