HxH 94: If something chases you… run!

Hunter x Hunter episode 94 review

HxH 94

Killua has to fight off a Chimera Ant, but he has his brother Illumi’s words echoing in his mind: “Run! Run! Run!” Little did we know that those words are literally in his head, and that he has reach into his own head and rip out what Illumi planted in him. It’s a bizarre scene and it makes little sense, but that’s the reason why Killua is able to beat this Ant.

Then we get another bizarre scene where Gon pisses off Palm and gets her angry at him. Killua escapes with Gon, and then the other Hunters show up and appease Palm. One of them, Knov, is apparently her actual crush. Now the Hunters are going to watch Gon and Killua for a couple of days before moving on to the next phase.

This was a weird episode. I don’t know what else to say about it. I can’t figure out whether I was supposed to laugh, cry, or both. It didn’t really do much toward the actual plot, but at the same time it wasn’t like Naruto this week where I wanted to jump through the screen and start grabbing characters by the necks and telling them that they’re wrong. I guess it was an okay episode? Yeah, get back to me next week.

Character of the episode: Palm

Episode rating (out of four stars): **1/2
