Hunter x Hunter 65 – That Bomber Is Kind of a Dick


What a fucking douchebag.

Really, though, everyone should have seen this coming, because, again, this guy looks and acts like a giant asshole. He’s gone through the trouble of planting a bunch of bombs on a bunch of people; does anyone really think those babies aren’t blowing up at some point? Everyone loves explosions, most of all villains who have planted bombs on people. Real talk: I’ve called this guy an asshole, but if I planted those bombs, I sure as shit would have detonated them.

(Dear FBI/CIA: Please don’t arrest me. I just like watching stuff blow up, not actually making stuff blow up. Wait, that doesn’t help at all . . .)

ANYWAY. I think the Bomber is going to fuck off for a while now that he has a bunch of cards? It’s been a couple of years since I watched the Greed Island OVAs, so there might more of him in the next episode for all I know, but I’m pretty sure we’re off to one of the better parts of the Greed Island arc soon. I’m actually interested to see how it will play out here, whereas in the original OVA I remember mostly vague annoyance. Now, though, I think I will enjoy it much more since I don’t have a shit art style to be biased against and whine about like a loser. Fun times!


If it weren’t for ACDC’s power in the latest JoJo episode, this little fella would probably have been the grossest thing I have seen all week. Getting all drooly and sucking up the Nen bomb is bad enough, but slinking all over Abengane and hanging around on him until the Bomber is killed or his power is destroyed . . . ugh ugh ugh. Just gross. Also, as I am sure that many of you newcomers have spotted, we suddenly have someone who can erase Nen powers that have been placed on him. Whom do we know who are searching for someone who can do that? Tada! The key to erasing Kurapika’s Nen spell on Chrollo Lucifer has appeared.

That just makes me think, though . . . if Abengane uses this power on Chrollo, will Chrollo have a similar creature crawling all over him until Kurapika is killed? I’m not sure it would be the same creature, since Abengane implied that different Nen-destroying creatures would be summoned depending on the level of power of the original Nen spell used. I don’t think it’s too far-fetched, however, to suggest that Kurapika’s is stronger than the Bomber’s since there’s a more intense form of malice behind it. What if the summoned creature were worse? Chrollo would be walking around with an ugly ass boa around his neck cramping his style. Ick. I’m sure he would do it and still be an awesome fighter, but it would suck.

But, yeah, removing Nen spells is officially A Thing. How long do you all figure it will be before the Spiders catch wind of this? Nobody saw Abengane that we know of, and he’s in disguise now. Hmm. Also, random note: I enjoyed the editing during the dual scenes of the Bomber blowing shit up and Abengane removing the bomb from himself. It’s a simple editing trick, but hey, that kind of stuff is classic for a reason.

Also, I have nothing else to say, so here’s a bunch of screenshots of Biske-chama being moe:

    I remember the scene of the Bomber killing those folks had GANTZ level gruesomeness in the manga, oh and HNNNNNNGH

      Oh yeah, I won’t link it here, but I was shown it after I watched the episode, and it’s quite explody!

    Ugh, you reminded me of those butt-ugly OVAs. They should have kept the look of the first OVA and improved on that

      I have to constantly remind people of them so that people are thankful we have a much better art style for Greed Island this time around.

    57 years old loli is the best.
    There, I ruined it for you.

    PS: Somehow that sounds worse that if she was 400.

      The uncanny valley at work. 400 is so far fetched for a human lifetime that we can just accept her strangeness and focus on the fact that she’s cute.

      Whereas 57 is well within the “regular human being old as shit” category and it shouldn’t be like that. welp.

      Haha, yeah, along with what R1CK_D0M said, I think it’s also the specificity of the age that makes it weird.

    That thing is far more disturbing than anything ACDC had up his sleeves. Just look at that expression; those eyes are practically screaming, “The things I’m gonna do to you tonight, sunshine!” Abengane knows he’s up shit’s creek, one way or the other.

      Anything having to do with peeling fingernails and toenails just grosses me the fuck out, so I’ll always see ACDC’s power as more horrifying lol

    Surprising how no body comments on Abengane essentially saving only his ass when he could have released everyone’s nen. It might have been the smart thing to stay low but it was extremely heartless.

    As far as chrollo and his nen monster what are the odds he has some nen power that gets rid of it. I bet the indoor fish would love a chunk of that.

      Considering the preparation he had to do and the time it took, he could have saved like 10 or so people at best, and then how he would pick?

      They just avoided a moral conundrum and that way he doesn’t have to buy the hatred of most of his group.

        Yeah. Plus it’s not particularly weird in this world, anyway, since Hunter x Hunter has been morally gray with a lot of its characters.

    I love how Biske asked Gon what they should do with the special new card they got.
