Hunter x Hunter Episode 52: The Sacrifice
All that I watched were all cool scenes… seriously…
Everyone killing, killing and more killing. This summary will hold nothing but characters in the series killing. Blood and explosions everywhere and many people died. More things burning and still, many people died. More people died as the Phantom Troupe charges with all those killing.
Gon and Killua got contact with Kurapika and asked him to make them help him on eliminating the Phantom Troupe although Kurapika refuses. Of course, Gon and Killua won’t just accept that. Also, The Zoldyk duo manage to get a hold of Chrollo inside the main auction building and therefore, started the fight to kill more!
We get to see more cool animation (well, at the end at least). Of course there’s really no anime episode that will give you all the action that you wanted to see and I can’t imagine Mad House to do so since their animation quality is already a big deal to take care of. But personally, I liked what they did on the Zoldyk duo vs. Chrollo fight. That animation was something to look forward to every episode. This is supposed to be something all those action series should have, definitely.
We also get to see the lazy side of the animation where they only showed images or slow motioned pictures but let’s not talk about that. We get to see Gon and Killua stuck on a train going to the auction place to find Kurapika. I still can’t believe I get to see that beetle-like cell phone and yes, I still can’t get over it. I also don’t know where they had Kurapika’s number. Must have been from Leorio but if that is so, they should have contacted Kurapika earlier – well, not my problem anymore anyway. Killua’s statement on Kurapika also stung a few strings in me – to think that Killua would say such precious words are just precious.
I love how Kurapika seems irritated that he’s torn into two duties: to protect Neon and to do his job as the assassin that the ten Dons have hired. Well, I can’t blame him for being irritated at the thought of it. I mean, he has this duty as the guard hired by the Nostrade and got himself caught up on the Ten Don’s business of being one of the newly hired assasins and Neon, the nitwit of the previous episode (no, she’s adorableeeeee) is stuck in a room, unconscious and she is Kurapika’s priority and then Kurapika’s ego got hit by one of the guards by saying he isn’t working well as the tem Dons would have paid him to. Talk about work conflict and such and because of this; Kurapika missed his chance in confronting the leader of the Phantom Troupe. Talk about bad luck as well, poor Kurapika… OR MAYBE GOOD LUCK?! D8
We also get to see a good animation fight between the Zoldyk duo and Chrollo. I’m sad on Zeno’s decision to sacrifice himself just to kill Chrollo and Silva didn’t even try to stop his father. OTL Let us just call this an assassin’s way of thinking but Silva… you’re human (with Nen and with the power to kill). D8 And please, spare me all those extra long explanations when you guys are fighting… just… please… At least Chrollo doesn’t explain THAT long. lol
Then the episode ended with a cliffhanger. A HUGE ONE AT THAT.
