HxH 103: Blind leading the blind

Hunter x Hunter episode 103 review

HxH 103

While Ryan Bartley was not my first choice for Komugi’s voice actress, or even my second or third, she apparently fits the role perfectly. Everything is solved now that Komugi’s voice is secured as a good one. Who is Komugi, you may ask?

Why, Komugi is the blind girl who is really good at Gungi. She is not named in this episode, but her name is not any bit of a spoiler. It really doesn’t matter whether you know her name or not, you can just call her “blind girl.” She enters the series in this episode and proves to be quite the Gungi player.

But why does that even matter? That, of course, is what you’ll want to be paying attention to as this series goes along. In the meantime, you see some more of the King and find that he’s having a hard time figuring out this new board game. He looks like me trying to play Go for the first time. I had my friend telling me that I was screwing up, but there was nothing I could do about it. I was just that bad.

Also, the other characters prepare for battle, including the battle with Cheetu. If Cheetu’s overconfidence is his weakness, then your faith in your friends is yours. It is pointless to resist, my son. (Oh, how I miss the halcyon days of Star Wars.)

A fantastic episode that shows you what potential Hunter x Hunter has left in it. You want to watch to find out exactly how this is going to turn out. Trust me, it’s worth while.
