Episode 80 "Evil × And × Terrible" Chapters adapted: 189-190, 204Last time... Spoiler Having adapted a naming system, the Chimera Ant squadron leaders continued to gain more individuality, choosing to operate by their own means even if it went against the goals of the Queen, including killing humans for sport rather than for her consumption. Nevertheless, their invasion of the NGL continued, as larger settlements were devistated and the NGL’s secret army was overwhelmed. Meanwhile, Kite’s group arrived at the NGL border, the latest of ten Hunter groups that had gone into the country to investigate. Due to the strict guidelines for getting into the NGL, including not having any implants, glasses, certain fabrics, or artificial materials, only five members of the group were allowed to enter: Kite, Gon, Killua, Stick Dinner, and Podungo. Kite told the others to wait for them in a nearby village outside the border, and the five entered the country. Somewhere inside, Pokkle's group examined the dead body of an NGL solider. Suddenly, they were attacked by three Ant soldiers, but Pokkle was able to take care of them using his ability to shoot Nen arrows. Fleeing, Ponzu tripped and was almost attacked by two Ants, but Pokkle was able to save her. As this was going on, the centaur-like Ant known as Yunju invaded a factory secretly developing the drug D2, a factory that doubles as the headquarters for the NGL's king, Gyro. This time… Yunju leads his attack on the NGL’s leader, while Pokkle and Ponzu continue to fight off Ants led by Zazan. Will Kite’s group be able to make it in time to rescue the young hunters?
