I think it was like that...let me check....
EDIT: Sp yeah, they met up with Kaito, and THEN an ugly ant thing appeared out of nowhere
I am the Walrus!
After they were searching for new species with Kaito's crew they found out about the queen. I think that worked fine.

Well the soldier eggs were taken by Pariston and now he's on Beyond Netero's team. So we should eventually see what kind of damage they could've done if Gon and company had been too late raiding the Palace.
They still had a bunch of those bombs left. One can wipe out one million people, and I'm quite sure Netero was supposed to fight the king inside the building.
The original plan was for Netero and Zeno to try and fight Meruem, presumably wherever they found him and Netero would activate the Rose bomb planted inside his body when victory was not possible.
However as far as we know that was the only Rose bomb that any of the raiding party possessed. Which makes sense considering the vast amount of damage a single Rose could do even after the explosion. So if by some chance Netero and his Rose failed then everyone there was screwed.
I don't really think it's that big of a deal whether Togashi had planned or not planned the Chimera Ant story. He's got enough elements and plot threads layered throughout the series that he can build the Hunter world for years. The only problem is whether he will stick the landing. The way I view Hunter X Hunter is it's Togashi's manifesto of how to write a shonen series, he takes tropes that have become cookie-cutter standards of the genre and then pushes these elements into a more smarter and sometimes painfully real direction. Maybe I just revel in this form of shonen deconstruction, but a part of me likes the idea of Togashi looking at the mass "new world" hysteria that has consumed Jump and thinking "sure why not". My only criticism with the whole dark continent angle is that by opening the world up this dramatically the overarching stories that have been building up for the past billion years may not have that same punch to them depending on whether the Hunter world is actually existing on a microcosm of the real world.
The Phantom Troupe's seiyuu for Madhouse's version were revealed today:
- Mamoru Miyano as Chrollo Lucilfer
- Rena Maeda as Machi
- Miho Arakawa as Shizuku
- Noriko Hidaka as Shalnark
- Naoya Uchida as Nobunaga Hazama
- Romi Park as Pakunoda
- Hidenobu Kiuchi as Franklin
- Kenn as Phinks
- Akio Ohtsuka as Uvogin
- Kappei Yamaguchi as Feitan
I thought people know Otsuka Akio from his voicing of Solid Snake and Marshall D Teach, not some live action voiceover.
Mamoru Miyano as Chrollo Lucilfer - Kiba from Wolf's Rain, mite b cool
Romi Park as Pakunoda - she's Hitsugaya and Komatsu, I thought Pakunoda had kinda deep voice for a woman
Hidenobu Kiuchi as Franklin - Nero from OP, I totally wouldn't match the 2 characters together based on their voice but who knows
Kenn as Phinks - Takimaru from Toriko, I dunno he's got a soft voice..kinda, dunno how it'll turn out
Akio Ohtsuka as Uvogin - Blackbeard, good choice
Kappei Yamaguchi as Feitan - Haha Usopp with a cold psychopatic voice? I'm interested
I'm very iffy on Chrollo Lucifer's VA.
Okabe from Steins;Gate? Kida for Durarara and Takuto from Star Driver? I'll be very interested in where he goes with this.
Be interested with how Yamaguchi will do Feitans voice.
Romi Park seems an odd choice, I've always imagined Pakunoda with more of a mature voice...not Edward Elric.
Very interesting VA choices
Maybe I'm being paranoid but I'm worrying about the pacing of this anime. Yorkshin arc starts soon, that leaves all of yorkshin, GI, and CA (admittedly a long ass arc) to animate before catching up to where the manga is. Even if Togashi does a 30 chapter run every year I don't think he'll finish enough arcs to keep a good padding lead for the manga from where the anime is
There is quite a ways to go yet! Plus,
It's not like there's anything stopping them from having the anime take seasons off or using filler.
And the anime could easily end at the place where the manga has stopped for now if it was necessary.
At any rate, there's a LOT of material left to get through first.
