Hunter x Hunter 2011 Episode 51: Requiem for the Dead

“The calendar looses a precious component.

The remaining months gather to mourn.

The mourners play a melody,

while the eleventh moon quietly rises.”

Summary:

Neon was ought to be brought back home by Melody and Basho but escaped from her guards and assistants when she disguised herself with the dress and wig she bought beforehand. With the thought of her father, lying on taking her to the auction with him, she went to the auction herself without knowing that her life might be in danger. After receiving the sudden report from Melody, Kurapika, with Neon’s father, immediately started to work his self on finding Neon.

Since no one is allowed to enter the auction premises without a pass, Chrollo, the leader of the famous Phantom Troupe, took advantage of this in approaching Neon, for her to enter the auction. He also asked about his fortune and talk with her for a while. After getting inside the building, he immediate put Neon to sleep and surrendered her to the guards of the building naming that she’s Nostrade’s daughter and thus, he began his requiem.

Impression:

YAY! I got to see a lot more side of Neon! Her crazy spoiled and free attitude sure is refreshing after all those serious episodes that we have gone through. Of course and her clever disguise which actually didn’t really get through her guards at all. XD I wonder how she will react after knowing that there will never be an auction to happen. XD

So we get to see the two strong men of the Zoldyk family. Only that, it was later that they realized that they are from the famous family of assassins. I am very curious on what does this father and son thinks about the Phantom Troupe since Killua mentioned on one of the previous episodes that their father talked about the Troupe and told them to not get close to them since they are dangerous. But to compare the kids who grew up killing to some troupe that has, maybe, randomly selected members, we would be able to tell in which level this troupe is. I do look forward for the fight between the Spiders and the newly assigned assassins of the Ten Dons.

Chrollo, on the other hand, is already weird on his usual clothing and became weirder but a little looking-normal on his formal wear. I seriously laughed when I saw him and his get up. Also, his fortune was told thus:

“The calendar looses a precious component.

The remaining months gather to mourn.

The mourners play a melody,

while the eleventh moon quietly rises.”

“The chrysanthemum withers and falls,

to lie on the ground beside bloody Scarlet Eyes.

But you will remain supreme.

Even after losing half your limbs.”

“Enjoy the interlude.

Search out new allies.

East is the direction to go.

You will find one who awaits you.”

Neon’s crazy fortune telling lines are just plainly crazy. I can actually become a poet if this continues. I really like how the verses really spelled out Chrollo’s fortune although I only can make out the meaning on half of it. The first two lines had already happened and are already happening by the time he read them. It obviously pertains to Uvo’s death and for his remaining members who’s mourning over him. The episode ended quite well with Chrollo, doing his conduction while everything bellow him burns and people die constantly whereas pertaining to the first verse of his fortune.

The remaining verses actually tell you what will happen next which will be a great battle ahead. (Let’s pretend that) I’m not sure if the one who is waiting for him will be Hisoka or Kurapika and also the new allies to be searched for. :D

    LEt me explain from here…

    The chrysanthemum withers and falls, — chrysanthemum signifies Chrollo’s success this means that the spiders-troupe is about to fall

    to lie on the ground beside bloody Scarlet Eyes. — It will fall in the hands of Kurapika, who is the carrier of vengeance for His clan (with scarlet eyes).. Blood means vengeance..

    You will remain supreme, — you will still live, will not die

    Even after losing half your limbs.” — you will lose your power, you nen, you will become normal

    for the rest…

    Enjoy the interlude.
    Search out new allies.
    East is the direction to go.
    You will find one who awaits you.”

    … you will be removed and you will no longer be part of the Spider’s troupe you will have different allies..
    I think the last passage talks about His wife… and I think that will be neon hahah just a hunch..

      I would really not disagree with Chrollo and Neon together… They are too cute to be not to be. 8D

    • chacha says:

      no, that’s not Neon (the last passage)… and Chrysanthenum is Pakunoda (September – its in the manga )and some of the supposed to be dead in the manga (Shizuku, Shalnark and one of these 3 Kortopi, Feitan and Phinx).. and Hisoka leaves, that means only 6 or 7 members remain on the spider, but Togashi made a twist on that … Thats why Paku only the one to die….

      East is the direction to go.
      You will find one who awaits you.

      East is Greed island where you can find Abengene the nen remover…

      you emit the search for new allies…
      there is a hunch on the hxh fandom that it might be Jairo and his gang…
