HxH 58: The hostage exchange

Hunter x Hunter episode 58 review

HxH 58

So the big hostage exchange happened in this episode. Gon and Killua are given up for Chrollo. In addition, Kurapika makes it so that Chrollo can no longer use his Nen and that Pakunoda is not allowed to tell anyone what she knows. Too bad for Kurapika, Pakunoda shoots all her memories into six of the Phantom Troupe and dies. And too bad for the viewers, this moment means absolutely nothing to the plot from here on out.

This was the last good episode of Hunter x Hunter. The show takes a steep decline after this. There’s just going to be some moments that are worse than others. Hope for mediocrity, but prepare for stupidity. So long, Kurapika and Leorio.

Character of the episode: Pakunoda

Episode rating (out of four stars): ***
