HxH 70: The interminable dodgeball game

Hunter x Hunter episode 70 review

HxH 70

This dodgeball game refuses to end. Gon uses “Back,” Razor uses “Back,” and we’ve got three-on-one which is really four-on-one because Bisky is somehow still allowed to throw the ball despite being out of the game.

What’s going to strike you as nuts is how it’s handled after this dodgeball game. You’re meant to think that this is some huge breakthrough that has earned Gon and pals the honor of beating the game, but instead it’s not even the climax of the arc. That’s one of the biggest problems with Hunter x Hunter; it makes mountains out of molehills and molehills out of mountains (as you’ll see later).
