    I like the power of literally beating answers out of someone. Shame about the hiatus. Maybe this chapter was just an anomaly but it looks like it's getting good.

    I liked this chapter towards the end. But alas, the hiatus is a cruel mistress.

    Yeah, really creative take. Wonder if she needs to be hit first as an activation condition, or something. Find it a little hard to believe that she would be taken by surprise like that, since she' obviously a better fighter.

    The other dude could use his ability well even without bleeding. He could harden his arms with increased blood flow. I think some martial arts do that with arm swinging, Bagua maybe?

    He doesn't look like much of a practitioner, though.

    On Page 5 in the MS translation the third Prince said he has lost three siblings.. how does he know Kacho died? Did the translator make a mistake or is even Togashi losing track of everything that is happening?

    I like how there's "Consider all possibilities before I use Predator" guy and on the opposite side of the spectrum you have "I bet this coin goes in the nen beasts mouth because it looks like a slot. But it would be to risky to try force feed the nen beast."

    Looking closely at this chapter, Togashi and his assistants aren't even trying to get the artwork to blend seamless.lol
    Normally, I can overlook it but it's particularly jarring in this chapter.
    Just look at the bottom panel.

    Is it jarring cause of the mass amount of detail?

    In my opinion, this is just as terrible, though itís on the other side of the storytelling spectrum.

    Itís like how you can find crazy people who are completely uneducated, and then also absolute kooks with degrees popping out of their asses.
    Early Bleach and early Naruto are both really good. But yeah if you're talking about a post Yammy Espada 0 (that's the moment Bleach really fell off for me, wasn't Soul Society level but still entertaining) Bleach or a later Naruto, both are way worse in my opinion.

    I do get that criticism though, that HxH swings the pendulum the complete other way and has become pompous. I skip dialogue if they trail off because... if I'm just getting another 10 Succession War chapters after this, I don't really care. For me to invest in something, I have to see that the payoff is worth it, usually. Soooo I need to see that Togashi's actually gonna deliver some steak after this long course of appetizer followed by hour long break followed by appetizer followed by hour long break, rinse and repeat. I mean it's still interesting enough, but I have a feeling all of this gigantic buildup and text is just not going to matter that much in the big picture. We'll see, I could be surprised.

    Yeah, it's funny how the background characters and objects have more detail than foreground ones. ^^

    Come on, guys. It’s just that all the foreground characters were wearing really light colors!

    Also, this is super accurate lately, because every character that gets exposition out the wazoo (kurapika aside) is only secondary to the main characters.

    Really liked the latest chapter, not because of the little bit of action it had, although it was nice to see. But what really sold me on the content was Togashi showcasing the powers visually, and even though he couldn't stop himself from spoon-feeding the readers the powers by writing them in info boxes few panels later, at least those info boxes weren't as bloated as what they could've been.
    The chapter also had plenty of progression with a clear shift in narrative as the Xi-Yu mafia is for the first time taking action towards getting rid of Morena herself.
    And while there are even more characters introduced, the members of the Xi-Yu mafia aren't a bothersome addition at all, at least they were nicely designed, were few, and were somewhat expected unlike Cammy's personal guards that came out of nowhere.
