    I'll admit that kiss from Uvo to Shalnark is kind of adorable.

    I just love how the Phantom Troupe care about each other, one big muderous family next to the Zoldyicks

    Doesn't Kurapika's phone have voice mail?

    "I'd prefer somewhere remote, that way no one can hear your screams".
    Ballsy answer, Kurapika.

    So Shalnark's apparently a hunter. I'm actually starting to like the phantom troupe, too bad I have a feeling Uvo won't be surviving next episode. You don't pick fights with a main character.

    I find it amusing how the man Uvogin interrogated more or less stated that Neon has some downright wrong interests. Nice to see Gon, Killua, and Leorio again, although I thought they would've attended the auction by now (unless the first night was for mafia families only). Kurapika continues to border the slippery slope by fraternizing with Hisoka and giving his not-so-subtle threat to Uvogin.

    Kurapika is climbing the ladder like a pro. I like how Leorio is both on the money and wrong about well Kurapika's doing. I mean, he did manage to catch one of them however briefly.

    Speaking of, Leorio's plan was actually pretty clever. Too bad outside factors got in the way.

    Yeah, that's about the size of it. The big auction is September 10th if I'm not mistaken, which is why they're still trying to raise money.

    EDIT: I just realized, the Nostrade Family is a reference to Nostradamus.

    I thought Leorio's confidence in Kurapika was cute. It really showed how much he'd come to respect him. It was a little strange that they'd only just started to wonder why he hadn't tried to contact them yet.

    I thought that this episode was pretty good. Kurapika making a deal with Hisoka also sounded like it could potentially backfire on him. Not as much as the whole self imposed contract thing, but enough to where it sounded a bit too risky to me. I liked how Kurapika's group all decided that he should be the new leader. He does carry himself well enough to where he would work as a leader, even with becoming more reckless and dangerous with his decisions regarding the Phantom Troop. For some reasons, I didn't think any of the other Phantom Troop members besides Hisoka would be Hunters, but that did make it easier for them to track down where Kurapika could be. Despite being a killing machine, Uvogin seemed pretty comfortable with his fellow Troop members.

    I was wondering when we'd see Gon, Killua and Leorio again. Leorio's plan seemed pretty solid and it could have worked if they didn't start a large scale bounty hunt. Killua was able to figure out that they were the Phantom Troop pretty quickly, but they didn't know how dangerous it would be to fight off one of them, let alone two. I was also wondering when they'd talk about Kurapika. I don't know how long they've been in town, but one would think that they'd try to contact him sooner than this.

    I don't know why Kurapika's phone didn't go to voice mail, but I kind of liked that in a way too. It could have shown that he was too far gone for his friends to reach out to him or that he was too isolated with his rage to focus on anything else at the time. Leorio's faith in Kurapika was rather sweet, even if he was pretty wrong about how well he was doing. Kurapika telling Uvogin that he didn't want his screams to bother anyone was a pretty awesome moment. He was so tough and confident in his skills even after seeing what Uvogin could do. Their fight should be quite good. I'm especially curious how Kurapika could handle it considering that Uvogin isn't poisoned anymore and the slugs shouldn't be a problem now either after drinking all that beer. Overall, it was a pretty good episode.
