The Bomber (ボマー, Bomā) is the 142nd chapter of the Hunter × Hunter manga, written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi.

SynopsisEdit

After digging through another mountain and focusing on their defense with, Gon and Killua continue to practice Ken. Gon can now maintain his Ken for at least 30 minutes after a month of training. Biscuit flashes a number three with In, and Killua answers faster by a split second, leaving Gon penalized with 1000 push-ups.

She then announces that it is time to practice combat. She explains Ken is an even split of offense and defense, whereas Ko is all or nothing, leaving one defenseless. In situations of real combat, she tells that using Gyo is more viable to adjust the ratio of offense and defense as necessary. Gon and Killua then practice using Gyo, distributing their aura at different proportions throughout their body as ordered by Biscuit. Afterwards, she instructs that they should practice it for half an hour, three times a day, and that they will begin kumite or sparring.

Biscuit introduces the concept of Ryu or flow, and how they will use it during sparring. She instructs that they try it out slowly but carefully and precisely as they take turns in attacking and defending. The sparring exercise is Flowing Dance, based on one of the advanced forms of kumite, wherein players of equal skill perfect their moves at purposely low speeds. Biscuit then thinks to herself that if done everyday, they will be able to perform Ryu at top speed in two months. Then they can proceed to the final phase.

Meanwhile, in a cave, Nickes informs his alliance about their progress and the number of cards they have on hand. Then he talks about their rival, Tsezguerra and his men, and that their last hurdle would most likely be a showdown between them. Just when he assures his members of their victory, Genthru speaks up and reveals himself as the Bomber. He also reveals that he had placed a bomb on everyone present, causing all of them to panic.

Jispa suddenly attacks Genthru from behind but Genthru brutally makes a bomb explode on Jispa's face. Genthru explains that blowing things up using his hand is a separate ability and is not as powerful as planted bombs. However, the explosion from the planted bombs is lethal. He then proceeds to inform the people how to disarm the bombs.
