Hunter x Hunter episode 77 review
“Life cannot be contained… life breaks free… life, uh, finds a way.”
The Chimera Ant Queen has begun chewing on humans in order to create new lifeforms that have human aspects to them. That means that two innocent children were killed by the Chimera Ants. REMEMBER THIS! If you are ever tempted to feel sympathy for the Chimera Ants some 60 episodes from now, remember that they killed two innocent children (and will kill a lot more from here on out)!
In other news, Kite and Gon and pals have gone off researching the Chimera Ants and coming up with little results. They are going to wish they had never started this mess of researching the Ants. They would have been better off searching for Ging. So yes, not much happened in this episode, but at least we’ve established that the Ants are bad. There is nothing redeemable about them.

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Stardust Crusaders episode 18 review
Joseph and the Polnareff gang buy a car in the United Arab Emirates, only to sell the super-expensive car for a bunch of camels and some water. That’s right, they’re going on camel-back through the desert. As Boston Rob once said, “this can’t end well.”
After some amusing antics with Joseph trying to get on a camel using tips from Lawrence of Arabia (“We Didn’t Start The Fire” check!), the boys get halfway out in the desert before they notice that the sun is still up at 8 pm at night. They figure out that the sun is a Stand, so they go into a foxhole to stay out of the heat.
They waste a lot of time there, not knowing what to do, before three of them (everyone but Joseph) breaks out in laughter. The Stand is simply a mirror, and once they shatter the mirror, it goes back to being night again. Let me know how this works, because this makes as little sense as some of the crap in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. How could the Stand be reflecting a sunny desert if it’s night out? I don’t get it.
In any case, this was a very funny episode, a very enjoyable one. Sure, it didn’t make much sense, but Jojo was never made to make much sense. It’s just supposed to be fun, and that’s what this episode was.
