Hunter x Hunter episode 100 review
First off, can you believe it’s been a century of episodes so far? Sadly we are far removed from the “better days” of the Hunter Exam arc and the Yorknew City arc. Good times are gone, replaced with mediocrity.
It couldn’t have possibly gotten any more mediocre than this episode. You ever hear the phrase “show, don’t tell”? This episode spent its entire time telling us everything that was happening instead of just showing us stuff. This becomes a bigger and bigger problem as this arc drags on, with the narrator flat-out telling us everything after a while. Trust me, if you thought this episode was annoying and preachy, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Unfortunately, Hunter x Hunter has gone off the path and fallen off the turnip truck. Now its only hope rests in one character. Can she save the series? All our hopes rely on her. Her eyes tell the path to whether Hunter x Hunter can be rescued from mediocrity. You can see her in the closing credits. She is our hope. If only she could see what dire straits we are now in.
