Hunter x Hunter (2011) s01e05 Episode Script

Hisoka x Is x Sneaky

Fearsome monsters Exotic creatures Vast riches Hidden treasures Evil enclaves Unexplored lands The word "unknown" holds magic.
And some incredible people are drawn to that magic.
They are known as Hunters! I see, I see That settles it You're the real one.
Examiners are Hunters selected by the committee to perform this duty without pay.
Any Hunter, bearing the title we seek, would have been able to block that attack.
I shall take that as a compliment.
However, should you attack me again, for any reason, I will report you for turning on an examiner.
And you will be immediately disqualified.
Are we clear? Sure.
Hisoka x Is x Sneaky The 368 applicants who made it through the long underground tunnel find themselves in an unexplored land teeming with strange creatures, known as the Numere Wetlands.
Pay attention now.
Be sure to stay close behind me.
The fog is getting thicker.
All right This is our chance.
We'll take advantage of the fog to get rid of him! Gon Huh? Let's move up.
Okay.
We don't want to lose sight of the examiner.
I'm more concerned with increasing the distance between us and Hisoka.
Staying too close to him is dangerous.
I can smell it in the air.
Smell? Hmm I don't think he smells.
Leorio! Kurapika! Killua says that we should move up! Hey Can't you feel the tension surrounding us? Moron! If I had the strength, I'd already be there! Don't worry about us! What? Let's go, Gon.
Ah, wait! We can't even tell which way we're going.
It's okay.
As long as we don't lose sight of the guys ahead of us What's going on? Wh-What? Noggin Luggin' Tortoise This looks bad Claymore Mushrooms Huh? What? A butterfly? Hypnosis Butterfly Damn! Which way are we supposed to go? Did we lose sight of him? Pay attention now.
Be sure to stay close behind me.
Over there! Pay attention now.
Caw! Be sure to stay close behind me.
Ruse Raven Caw! That thing can imitate human speech? Close call Yeah I hear people screaming all around us.
Just stay on your guard.
I wonder if Leorio and Kurapika are okay Mm? Frog-in-Waiting Leorio! Ouch.
Leorio, here's our opportunity.
Y-Yeah Guess he didn't like the taste of us.
It was this.
That was from Tonpa-san! Guess he saved us.
Well, I could have escaped.
I'm still worried about Leorio and Kurapika.
Forget about them.
Let's get a move on.
We can still catch up to the examiner.
We've lost sight of the front-runners.
Which way should we go? Stop! Over there When I saw you last year, I knew you weren't Hunter material.
We'll spare you if you swear not to take the Hunter Exam again.
Sure.
Huh? I'm passing the exam this year, so I won't need to retake it.
Passing? Idiot! Look at this fog.
It's impossible to determine which direction the main pack went! Meaning we've all failed the exam! So that's why.
Having already failed, you wish to play examiner.
Hunters require prey.
Why don't I play examiner And judge whether you are Hunter material? Shut up! Now, then H-H-Help! Hel— Well? Care to participate, in my little game of examiner? Hunter Vocabulary Satotz Cool We've caught up to the main group, Gon.
Huh? Where'd he go? Leorio.
On my signal, we run in opposite directions.
What? He is vastly more experienced in real combat.
The two of us won't stand a chance against him.
We cannot afford to squander time in a pointless fight! Now! I see A wise decision.
Hmm? I just can't do it This may not be my fight, but I won't close my eyes and make a break for it! Leorio?! Mm, I adore that look on your face.
What? Gon? I made it in time Not bad, little boy.
Is that a fishing pole? What a fascinating weapon.
Allow me a closer look.
Your fight is with me! You came to rescue your friend? Such a good boy.
And that expression Nice Very nice.
I'm getting excited now Okay! How wonderful I really do love that look.
Do not fear.
I will not kill your friend.
He passed.
Yes, you pass, as well.
Grow up and become a fine Hunter.
Hisoka, you should get back here.
We're nearly at the Phase Two site.
Okay, I'll be right there.
It's always good to have friends.
You can find your own way back, yes? That's a good boy.
Gon! Are you all right? Huh? Gon isn't here This way.
You can really tell? Uh-huh.
Leorio's cologne is very unique.
I can smell him from a few kilometers away.
Say, Kurapika What did Hisoka mean when he said that we passed? Hisoka was acting as a judge.
A judge? Yes.
He must have his own benchmarks for evaluating power.
It's possible that he was ascertaining each applicant's strength.
Apparently, you and Leorio must have met his standards.
I see.
But I was powerless to do anything against him.
Didn't you land your first hit on him? Only because I surprised him.
Besides, Leorio passed, even though he lost Hmm Perhaps he sensed that you were kindred spirits.
Kindred spirits? I seriously doubt that Hisoka could qualify as a Hunter.
However, I must admit that he did impress me with his superhuman agility and graceful technique.
It's quite common that those possessing special talents are drawn to others with unique gifts.
Most likely, Hisoka's instincts and experience told him that you had the skill and potential to become Hunters.
Killing you now would have been a waste That was his perspective.
Oh, I'm sorry! Was that insensitive on my part? No But I was pretty excited, as well.
I was so scared, I wanted to run away.
But I couldn't.
And at the same time, I was excited.
Isn't that strange? For the first time in his life, Gon has experienced mortal fear.
Though the unfamiliar feelings accompanying that fear confuse Gon, he cannot restrain his growing curiosity.
At this stage, 220 candidates have withdrawn from the exam, leaving 148 remaining applicants.
Next time: A x Surprising x Challenge! S-Surprisingly challenging.
Huh? Gon, are you okay?
