Hunters are a special breed, dedicated to tracking down treasures, magical beasts, and even other men. But such pursuits require a license, and less than one in a hundred thousand can pass the grueling qualification exam. Those who do pass gain access to restricted areas, amazing stores of information, and the right to call themselves Hunters.

Best volume so far. I'd say that it was so intense, but that brings KAITO's Double Rainbow PV and song to my head, so instead I guess it was... serious? Haha, I'm glad nearly all of this was on the Zoldyck family arc. It's one of my favourites, so it's good to see that it wasn't really fast--it's a lot quicker paced than the original anime, but the original anime just seems to be slow but amazing at the same time with fillers everywhere that don't look like fillers, but it doesn't rush. I like ...more

Let me tell you something about Killua Zoldyck.

He's a pretty little monster who is like aged 12 but then again he's a motherfu*kin beast. All you must know about him is that he is a talented baby assassin who just so isn't very fond of going round killing people. He attacks with his bare hands or his yo-yo (that's how badass the kid is). I keep saying kid but he ain't no ordinary one. His family are the Zoldycks who are this pretty cool family of assassins. The best assassins. His brothers are

Gon is told about the events of the Hunter exam. Kurapika and Hisoka fought, both getting injured in the fight. Hisoka whispers something to Kurapika and withdraws from the fight, making Kurapika the winner. Pokkuru and Hanzo fight, Hanzo wins. Killua withdraws from his first match against Pokkuru, wanting a stronger opponent. Hisoka beats up Bodoro, whispers something to him, and Bodoro admits defeat. Gittarakur (Hisoka's ally) removes his disguise and Killua is shoc

Saya akhirna dikasi komik ori berbahasa Jepang oleh editorna (setelah merayu-rayu ehehehe~) :p :p :p
Jujur, saya awalna kira bahasa komik ini bakal agak susah. Ternyata gak terlalu, biasa aja :|
Saya bisa membacana tanpa buka kamus (yah, mungkin ini lebih karena saya udah tau ceritana :v ), tapi seriusan saya gak nyangka bahasana semudah ini. (mungkin karena saya juga kebiasaan baca komik Level yang tanpa furigana, begitu ada furigana jadi sangat membantu :v )
Daaaaaaaaaaaaan... SAYA KAGET SI GITA

Setelah dilihat-lihat... baru sadar benua-benua di dunia Gon sama saja dengan benua kita. Hanya beda pada penempatan benuanya saja.

Rumah Killua ada di Afrika Utara kita, kalau dilihat dari bentuk benuanya :)
