Hunter x Hunter (2011) s01e33 Episode Script

An x Empty x Threat!

Shroud Ten.
The ability to build up a shroud of Nen aura.
You can make your body harder, and considerably slow the effects of aging.
Null Zetsu.
A technique that nullifies your Nen aura.
It is effective for concealing your presence, and recovering from extreme fatigue.
Enhance Ren.
A technique to create an especially strong Nen aura.
This ability is crucial for increasing your power.
Act Hatsu.
The release of your Nen aura, after boosting via Ren.
These four elements are known as the four major principles, Four Major Principles and are critical to the mastery of Nen.
Gon, we need to learn more about Nen.
Yeah! An x Empty x Threat After two months, during which Gon was forbidden to practice Nen, Wing has summoned Gon and Killua to see him.
Gon-kun.
Killua-kun.
Starting today, you'll train with Zushi.
Gon-kun, I'm pleased that you kept your word.
It's thanks to your promise thread.
A few times, I almost gave in.
But when I looked at the thread, I was able to control myself.
That's because I added some Nen to help you.
Huh? Really? No, I was lying.
Huh? But how could you tell that he kept his word? He could have been practicing in secret.
Because the promise thread remained intact.
Gon-kun, it's been a while, but would you try using Ten ? It's okay? Yes.
Crap, do I remember how to do this? It's been so long.
Can I still pull it off? Zushi, what do you think? I-It's amazing! His aura is flowing all around him! Soft and calm But it's very strong! I did it! Whew I was worried that I might have forgotten how.
Once you've learned the technique, you can't forget it.
However, to become a master, you'll have to train hard.
But it felt easier than before, despite not having been practicing Ten.
That's because you were training your spirit each day.
Now, look at your left hand.
Huh? It snapped! By applying my own Nen, I tied the thread such that if you broke your promise and used Nen, it would snap.
That's actually possible? Hey, Wing-san Did you watch Kastro and Hisoka's match? Yes, I did.
What was the ability that Hisoka used? Could we send loose limbs flying around? Hmm, that's a difficult question.
Gon-kun, have you seen the fight on video? No, not yet.
Then I'll explain while we watch.
Can you see the threads of aura extending from his left hand? Threads of aura? Yes.
Do you see them? N-Nope.
I can't see a thing.
Same here.
Are there really threads of aura coming from Hisoka's left hand? Yes, Hisoka is using a technique that makes his aura difficult to perceive.
Null It's a high-level application of Zetsu, known as In.
Hide When you use In, even the strongest opponents will find it hard to see your aura.
The most effective counter to this technique Enhance is to focus the aura created by Ren into your eyes, a technique called Gyo.
Focus The method Gon-kun used in his fight with Gido might work, as well.
However, you couldn't take offensive action, so ultimately, you'd throw your life away.
Right.
My assignment for you two is to practice Ren until you can see through Hisoka's In.
Eh? Uh, master? What should I do? Zushi, you should already be strong enough to see past his In.
I should? Show them your Ren.
O-Osu! Ren! It's so strong.
It doesn't have a much greater magnitude, but it's very dense.
Then direct that aura into your eyes.
Osu! Gyo! So, can you see the aura that emanates from Hisoka's body? Yes.
And how many threads are there? Twelve No, I think it's thirteen.
Not quite.
But you were close.
I could really see them! You're making excellent progress, Zushi.
O-Osu Thank you very much.
By channeling all your power through Gyo, you achieved a level where you could see through Hisoka's In.
But with enough training, you'll be able to use Gyo while fighting.
Do you understand? First, practice Ren, and master the Ren application known as Gyo.
Then you'll discover the true nature of Hisoka's ability.
And will you be able to use that same ability? My answer is both yes and no.
Regardless of what Hisoka's precise power is, so long as it uses Nen, you can learn it.
However, Nen powers depend on the particular individual.
Each of us possesses different specialties and preferences.
Thus, Nen differs for each person.
If you're serious about mastering Nen, you shouldn't merely copy others' abilities.
It's important that you first identify your own strengths.
Strengths You've only just begun to develop.
You haven't settled on one form yet.
Initially, try to grow as much as you can.
That is the purpose of this training.
Train hard, play hard, and enjoy life.
Osu! The final day of Killua-kun's window to fight is June 9th, and Gon-kun's is the 10th, correct? I'd like you both to register for your final day.
In the meantime, you'll train.
You must learn Gyo before it's time for your battle.
Osu! Your Ren was impressive, Zushi.
You moved way ahead while I was resting.
No, I still have a long path before me.
Hey, let's practice what we just learned.
Yeah, then let's go to your room, Gon.
Okay.
Killua Zushi.
Osu! We have company.
You guys don't know when to quit.
That's why no one likes you.
Oh, don't be so harsh.
Tell me when you're going to fight, because I'd love to be your opponent.
I guess they specialize in hunting newbies.
They want to rack up wins by beating us up.
We're getting desperate Because our deadline is nearing.
Come on, let's fight.
I'll even demonstrate my power right now.
I'm fighting on June 10th.
Hey, Gon! That won't work.
My deadline is May 29th.
Fight on that day.
Who cares about your deadline, moron? Let's go.
Gon-chan You and I will fight.
I guarantee it.
Gon, ignore him.
What will you do? I'll force him to fight me.
Visualize the energy building in your body.
Power gathers in each cell, and grows.
Then you force that power out! I'm getting used to this.
Learning when to shroud the boosted aura with Ten was a little tricky.
A-A little? They pick it up too fast! But our auras still aren't as strong as Zushi's.
Guess we should practice more.
N-No, that's enough! Learning when to rest is part of training.
Let's call it a day.
Really? I can still— No! If they pass me in half a day, I'll lose all my motivation Oh Well, it's okay.
We'll practice more tomorrow.
Yeah.
See you tomorrow.
Bye.
Okay, then I can't I can't move! I can't talk or breathe What's going on? Oops.
Please Forget it.
I figured you were up to something.
But you don't need dirty tricks to make me fight you.
When do you want to fight? Don't worry.
I'll let you win.
I'll even give you each a win.
Is that good enough? After I get my win off you, I'm going to fight Gon-chan.
If you want to fight Gon, you'll have to follow his schedule.
He'll be more than happy to fight you.
I can promise you that.
Okay.
If you two are willing to fight, we don't need to bother with this.
Let's go register together.
Once that's done, I'll return the boy unharmed.
Yeah, yeah.
Sure But only this once.
May 29th Okay, happy now? Yes, we'll return him.
Oh, just to reiterate, it's a one-time deal.
If you break your promise Eh Whatever.
Forget it.
What? You got me curious.
What will happen if we break our promise? No point in telling you now.
Just keep your word.
Hello? Is this Gon-kun? I'm sure you'll understand what this means.
As long as you don't tell anyone, and you follow my instructions, the three of you will be able to train as usual tomorrow.
Zushi How did it go with Gon-chan? Perfect.
He's registered for the 30th.
That's two wins.
Too easy.
Not killing people is pretty hard.
Clean living's tough Come on down! We have tickets! These are fresh off the press Gon versus Sadaso! And here's Killua versus Sadaso If you don't buy now, you'll regret it! Pops.
Yep? Does Sadaso have only one arm? Yeah, the one-armed fighter, with the mask-like face.
If he catches you with his invisible left arm, you're finished.
They call him the newbie crusher That bastard.
Huh? Killua? Gon, you were here? Y-Yeah Killua-kun, I believe you helped Zushi last night.
Thank you.
You feeling all right? Yeah, I'm fine.
I was probably tired.
Sorry to worry you! Oh, Wing-san Can we watch that video again? I've learned how to use Gyo.
Really? Fifteen threads, right? Thirteen for the cards, one for the scarf, and a well hidden one that leads to the arm he tossed.
Continue.
Hisoka is Hisoka's aura appears to expand and contract.
Or does it attract certain objects, similar to a magnet? Why else would his arm reattach? Or fly into his opponent's chin? It's probably the former.
His aura is elastic, like rubber.
That would explain most of his tricks.
He's on a completely different level! Very good You pass.
But I am surprised I didn't expect you both to learn Gyo overnight.
Gon? Uh-huh, but I still couldn't figure out Hisoka's power.
So, Killua-kun, since you finished your assignment, I assume you want to fight, yes? O-Oh, I wasn't trying to beat you to the punch.
I just got an itch to fight.
Yeah, I get it.
Gon, they must have threatened you.
Actually, I've already chosen my day to fight.
May 29th.
Mine's May 30th.
That's fine.
I underestimated how fast you could learn.
Spend the remaining days practicing Ten and Ren.
Be sure you get plenty of practice, rest, and sleep.
Osu! Killua They must have threatened you.
Now I'm mad Yeah, but my biggest concern was the master, and he agreed.
But I'm worried they'll use Zushi again.
It'll be okay.
You don't need to worry.
Today, I'll beat Killua-chan for my sixth win.
Tomorrow, I'll beat Gon-chan for my seventh win.
Then I just need to find three more chumps.
And I'll be a Floor Master.
I'll get all the wealth and glory to set me up for the rest of my life.
Move, and I will kill you Use Nen, and I will kill you.
Make a sound, and I will kill you.
If you understand, slowly close your eyes.
Do you know what happens if you break your word? If you know, slowly open your eyes.
Look at me in the mirror, and listen carefully.
Never show your filthy face to us again.
That's a promise.
Time has run out for Sadaso! Killua wins by default! Damn, I want my money back! Killua opens the battle against the persistent trio with a win by default.
Thanks to their inborn talent, Gon and Killua are learning Nen at incredible speeds.
Now they will start the real battle at Heavens Arena.
Brush Your Teeth.
Unripe Fruit Gon and Killua's Hunterpedia Coming up, we have Gon and Killua's Hunterpedia! It's Gon and Killua's Hunterpedia! Gon and Killua's Hunterpedia Today, we introduce Sadaso.
A Heavens Arena He underwent the traditional greeting with Gido and Riehlvelt.
Alters his Nen to form an invisible left arm.
Yeah? His invisible left arm is made of Nen.
Yeah? Oh.
Yeah? Next time: Power x To x Avenge! Power, yeah? Avenge, yeah? Yeah? Yeah? Yeah?
