Episode 53 – Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

This episode was late because BIG HAIRY IMPORTANT NEWS! Next week Shonen Jump Alpha (Viz’s wonderful service only available to Canadians and Americans residing in Canada and America, and other people living there also) will be running the two part Kurapika backstory special. It is also late because I have many things to do and editing does not often fall at the top of the list.

  1. Just read the new two parter. I loved it, but it was pretty much what I expected. Not saying it was predictable, not in a bad way. Kurapika was always such a well-written character that you already knew what kind of kid he was, or the environment he grew up in.
    I guess what I loved most was how all of it made perfect sense, and how his motivation to leave in the first place was once again a form of survivor’s guilt. Pairo got messed up, but he didn’t even get scratched. Then everybody got killed, but he survived. Tragedy squared.

    Btw, is it just me, or is Pairo way too sneaky ? I dunno, but the more I find out about the Kurata massacre, the less certain I am that the Spiders even did it, and they don’t seem to care either way.
    I mean, remind me, did they ever really confirm they did ? Probably, but even so, there’s something fishy about this.

    And can you guys clear this up for me, cause I’ve read next to nothing about the movie : Is this going to be canon, yes or no ?
    (And does anyone have a decent scan of the movie info in Jump ? One where I can actually make out the kanji well enough to read it ?)

    *watches latest trailer*

    ….fucking Illumi has Nanika eyes…..o.O

  2. *watches some more trailers*
    If you look carefully at that scene where Kurapika’s screaming, that looks like Pairo on the other side of that flash.
    Don’t know if this has been revealed yet, but are we really sure he loses his eyes in this ? Looks more like he’s been blinded.

    ….Oh, and in case you’re wondering why I’m not commenting on the actual podcast, well, it’s been consistently good for ages now. There’s only so many times you can say “good show !” before it gets annoying. If you guys want more comments and emails, you’re going to have to fuck up spectacularly.
    (Something like 50 minutes of Foxy going “I don’t care”, in an increasingly emotionless tone, that would do it)

      Yeah, turns out it’s Pairo who takes his eyes using some kind of nen thing. That should explain how he gets them back later without visible scars.
