Asta (アスタ, Asuta) was a knowledgeable leader of team of players consisting of Manheim and Amana on Greed Island and was a member of Kazsule's Alliance.[1]

Appearance Edit

Asta has short orange hair, small eyes, and a large bust. She wears a blue tank top, large grey sweatpants supported by a belt, and leather boots.[1]

Personality Edit

Asta is short-tempered and prideful, causing her to clash almost immediately with Killua who doesn't take kindly to her down talking. She is also a little superficial thinking that the Bomb Devils will stop their plan because of Razor. Despite all this, she decided to trust Gon and shared with him her knowledge about Greed Island.[1]

Background Edit

Asta's team has 2 other members, Amana and Manheim. They were fairly advanced in the game, as they collected 71 specified slot cards by the time they decide to cooperate with Gon and Killua.[1]

Plot Edit

Greed Island arc Edit

Asta is one of the many Greed Island players to confront Gon and Killua after they win the Sword of Truth (G.I card) in the tournament held in Antokiba.[2]

Asta In Meeting About The Bomber

Asta and her team in the meeting about Genthru

She along with her team is one of the teams present at the meeting organized by Kazsule to discuss how to prevent Genthru from winning the game. Immediately when the meeting begins she belittles Gon's team, because she thinks the kids are amateurs and don't have a firm grasp of how the game works, which annoys Killua. Continuing with the meeting, Kazsule proposes they retrieve a monopoly of the cards four cards they're after, those being Card 02, Card 09, Card 75, and Card 00, though it's only possible to get the first three cards. Asta then inquires if there's away to use some attack spells and Kazsule claims only they can only use a Levy (G.I card) against them, because they have the Paladin's Necklace (G.I card) at their disposal. As the meeting progresses Asta suggests they use force to snatch Genthru's cards, but another player Yabibi questions if that's possible without knowing their Nen abilities.[1]

Killua and Asta

Asta arguing with Killua

Kazsule then proposes an Alliance between all of the attendees, but while Asta is for it, she thinks Gon's group aren't qualified to join as they haven't collected a minimum of fifty designated cards like everyone else in the alliance meeting. Gon however claims they have vital information about Genthru's Nen abilities and Killua claims they have a card Genthru's after, impressing Asta. So when she inquires what the Genthru's abilities are, Killua demands two S-Rank cards in exchange for information on Genthru's abilities. This ticks off Asta and the two briefly argue with each other, until Asta's team mates Amana and Manheim agree to give the group two S-Rank cards the Pregnancy Stones (G.I card) and Shield of Faith (G.I card). Gon then explains Genthru's abilities and Asta is shocked by this as her suggestion to use force is ruled out, so she inquires if there's away to counter act one of the abilities and Gon explains how.[1]

Feeling remorseful of how she acted towards the other earlier, she reveals to Gon's group how to re-use spell cards, how to easily accumulate B-Ranked cards from card shops, and how to get two more S-Rank cards the Beauty Magnet Emerald (G.I card) and the Mystery Pond (G.I card) with the X-Ray Goggles. She also offers another S-Rank card, but Gon refuses, much to Killua's dismay. Afterwards everyone agrees to form an alliance with each other and head to Soufrabi to try and get the Patch of Shore (G.I card).[1]

Pirates And Guesses

The Alliance confronts the Razor pirates

Arriving in Soufrabi the group split into groups of 3 and go around town asking for information on the card, until Kazsule starts a quest to get the card from a Woman NPC. She explains that the Razor Pirates have taken over the town and she knows of the location of the Patch of Shore and will tell them it's location if they drive the pirates out of town. The woman then informs the group of the pirate's base in town and the group is challenged by one of the pirates Bopobo in a Sumo Wrestling match,[3] but he is handily beaten by Killua. So the pirates lead the alliance members to the base and Razor explains that the way to expel them from the town is to beat them in a series of challenges. The first being boxing and Montreux takes the challenge,[4] but fails and after losing all of the challenges, Asta proposes the alliance end seeing is how Genthru can't collect the Patch of Shore card and you'd become a target by him if you manage to collect it. Asta and her team mates then leave the lighthouse area.[5] Sometime later she and her group die by Genthru's hand.[6]

Abilities & PowersEdit

Due to being able to access Greed Island, Asta is capable of utilizing Nen.[7] Despite being very knowledgeable about the game, Gon's team estimated her to be too weak to defeat Razor's convicts, as turned out to be the case. Asta was also unable to see the Pirate boxer's warping uppercut.[5]

TriviaEdit

  • "Asta" is Italian and Spanish for "Pole", but in Italian it can also mean "Auction".
