Who thought it would be entertaining to watch forfeited matches? Because we get a couple of them in this one. One of them is the result of Killua’s attempted assassination. The other comes after Gon manages to punch through steel. You know how “jet fuel can’t melt steel beams”? Well, this is even harder to explain. Gon literally cracks a steel leg in half with one punch. He is the true “One-Punch Man.”
Killua manages a superhuman feat as well. He literally takes on 1,000,000 volts of electricity and doesn’t flinch. It’s because he’s trained to withstand torture, supposedly, but with that strength, it makes me wonder what he’s even doing here at the Heavens Arena. If 1,000,000 volts don’t make you even blink an eye, there’s no way any of these guys on the 200th floor can do a thing to you.
Oh, and by the way, not too much use of the three-lettered word in this one. And you gotta love Hisoka’s slow clap at the end.
