    This video game features extreme dodgeball. Togashi appearently decided not to go with generic fantasy video game tropes and thought of more off the wall challenges like scissors guy and extreme dodgeball. Also, time to update the Gon pwnd counter. This is at least the fifth time he's got his butt kicked, making him far less Gary Stu-y than that other anime guy stuck in a video game.

    Who expected the "video game isn't really a video game" twist. If that's the case, how do spell cards work? The answer is probably the same answer to everything else in this show. Nen did it.

    The dodgeball game is literally my favorite part of Greed Island, and so far, the 2011 version is not disappointing me! Can't wait for next week!

    I thought that this episode was pretty good. I certainly wasn't expecting the leader to kill off that big guy and especially in such a brutal way. There have been other deaths in this light arc, but we didn't see people carrying their headless bodies away or see that much blood from one person. Not actually being in a video game was a surprising twist too, but it did make sense given that Greed Island is an actual place in the world. I guess that the Spell Cards work through Nen. Ging certainly didn't want anyone to hold back against Gon if his message was any indication.

    The dodge ball game was pretty intense. Most of the characters were already knocked out once the leader was getting serious. Hisoka's attempt to use his own ability to give them an edge made sense, but it didn't work out for too long. The power behind that ball was so strong that it knocked Gon's socks off. He was lucky that he wasn't out of commission after that attack. Overall, it was a pretty good episode.
