Log in to Reply Ah, one of the best characters in anime, Meruem defeated by the power of love AND the true malicious depths of humanity whilst still being a complete person. It was a pleasure my good Ant (Please make figures of him, why are the only ones so expensive statues!) Log in to Reply One of the most GOATed episodes of anything. Log in to Reply Note: in the manga during gyros backstory a panel says Gon and gyro will meet in the future Log in to Reply Komugi’s snotty nose was foreshadowing this ep all along Log in to Reply Do these guys know that the series isn’t technically complete? Log in to Reply calvin is really feeling it 😀 but to be fair this episode really wants to make you cry Log in to Reply I’m always amazed by this arc everytime I rewatch it. My favorite thing about the writing is how the main villain of the arc and the main character of the anime never met each other and the contrast between Meruem and Gon development, how one of them became more human over time while the other got driven into becoming a monster. Log in to Reply To answer that real Diego bit: The King went from someone who ATE CHILDREN to this episode throughout his arc, and most watchers would agree it was earned. Why couldn’t Diego have had his own redemption arc? Really, what’s worse: being a dictator or eating children? Log in to Reply I’ve got my blanket, plenty of water, and an entire tissue box. I’m ready to be hurt again. Log in to Reply rip to komugi x meruem Log in to Reply I like just how the king started out as a monster then turned into a human while Gon started out as a human then he became a monster. Log in to Reply The translation is pretty bad on that Diego part in my opinion, but the purpose of it is to show that a human ruler came to the same conclusion that Meruem had come to, appreciating and prioritizing the life and love around him over power. Log in to Reply Perfectly put Log in to Reply loved your guys discussion on this, glad yall really enjoyed the arc Log in to Reply Amazing episode and reaction. Thanks guys! Log in to Reply I cry at this episode every single time. What an arc… Log in to Reply I think learning his name was also a huge aspect of his change. By the time Netero had told him his name, he had been contemplating his purpose and existence. Wanting to know his name became a desire because it would symbolize that there was more to him than his title and predestination. Knowing his name birthed a quality to him akin to personhood; it gave him an identity that did not hinge on the ability to subjugate others, but one that could empathize with what it means to be a living being with agency. It’s one of the reasons why introducing ourselves is the first thing we do when we meet someone new. It is a gesture that beckons the other living being to acknowledge that a stranger has a history, a family, friends, talents, weaknesses, failures and triumphs just like them. In that moment of introductions, they live together and exchange small but powerful pieces of our worlds – no, their existence – their names. When we consider that Komugi was the one that first asked Meruem his name and gave him that first shock of self-evaluation, and so too was Netero the one that told him his name, we see that it was both of them that caused his change. I believe Netero understood all of this which is why he played that card. Gives a whole new meaning to “My name, is my name.” – Marlo Stanfield Log in to Reply Meruem’s character development is spectacular and just super well done, my man went from killing whatever he sees to bowing down to humans And also what makes his development amazing is that all it took was just one frail girl to change him Log in to Reply To me, what tips Meruem over is Welfin reminding him of Komugi’s name. Realizing what was missing and what matters. Having the most important thing just under your eyes, you may not realize how important it is but lose it for a time then find it again and you will never let it go another time. Log in to Reply I don’t think Gon would want to live his final moments with a friend like the King. He is too much like his father. What matters to him in friendship is making new friends and sharing a part of the way with them but a goal and moving forward along his path is what gives him purpose. If he knew he had 2 days lo live, he would spend them looking for his dad or something else after that. Keep reaching for what he cannot grab until the final moment. If his friends are at his side then, it is even better but he would not just enjoy a meal or fishing without walking forward towards a goal.
