Disappearance (消失, Shōshitsu) is the 372nd chapter of the Hunter × Hunter manga, written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi.

SynopsisEdit

Furykov and Kurapika notice that Shedule and Yuhirai are capable of using Nen proficiently already, arousing their suspicions. They deny any knowledge of Nen, but wish to speak to Kurapika in private. Kurapika agrees to talking to one of them after the lesson. Furykov realizes that they are being forced to use Nen unknowingly, and begins thinking about the assassin hiding in the room.

Seiko is interrogated by an investigator working for Cleapatro. She refuses to answer any of the question, invoking her right to remain silent. The investigator informs her that she will not be recorded, but she remains obstinate. He promises her that he can prepare anything for her while she is under surveillance for the next 72 hours.

372 - Hanzo snaps Tuffdy's neck

Hanzo kills Tuffdy

Biscuit and Hanzo notice that Marayam's Nen beast is growing and looks more defensive, believing that Momoze's death accelerated its growth. At 10:00, two guards take over their shift, and the two go to bed. To reduce the Nen beast's defenses, Hanzo uses a clone to investigate. He wakes up Tuffdy, fabricating a narrative that Benjamin wishes to hire him, and that they will forge evidence to frame Nagmum for Momoze's murder. Tuffdy asks how Hanzo knew it was him, unintentionally confessing his guilt, and Hanzo restrains him, revealing that he narrowed the suspects to him and Nagmum.

The girls in Salé-salé's room ask him to tell them what he intends to do at the banquet, but he does not reveal anything.

Tyson asks her bodyguards what they thought of her book. Izunavi admits that he has not yet read it, while the other bodyguard lies and says that he enjoyed it. The other bodyguard asks Izunavi about the creature that rests on their shoulders. Izunavi replies that he does not know, but he does not believe it to be a threat. The bodyguard points out that the creature is not on Orau, meaning there is some special demarcation.

Chap 372 - Hanzo and Nen beast

Hanzo finds the Nen beast smaller but more menacing

Following the lesson, Sakata asks Kurapika to remain during the discussion with Yuhirai, reminding Kurapika that he needs Zhang Lei's support. Yuhirai informs Kurapika that Halkenburg wants information regarding Nen beasts. Yuhirai explains that when Halkenburg saw all the unconscious guards, he himself became unconscious, and a feather mark appeared on the back of their hands. The guards had no memory of losing consciousness, and none of them found it strange that the prince was going to bed at an unusual time. Kurapika reveals that their experience bears the hallmarks of a type of Manipulation Nen, specifically request-type Manipulators, where the user manipulates the target but gives them the freedom of choice. Yuhirai says that Halkenburg would believe that the symbol represents the will of his convictions flowing in his guards. Kurapika and Yuhirai point out that that explanation is contradictory when considering that Halkenburg seeks to eliminate the monarchy, and he desires no bloodshed. Kurapika tests Yuhirai's Nen abilities and surmises that Yuhirai can use Nen, but not control it. He also explains that, since Halkenburg has the mark, he is equally susceptible to the risks carried by the Nen beast. To prevent Halkenburg from breaking the conditions, Kurapika advises Yuhirai to deduce the nature of this ability, offering to come up with a countermeasure when given adequate information. Kurapika promises that the information will not be used for malicious purposes, as Oito's desire is to leave the boat. Kurapika urges the lower-ranked princes to unite as the upper princes are now on the offensive. Yuhirai, Sakata, and Kurapika all agree to prioritize the protection of the princes while silently pondering how they can gain an advantage in the situation.

Hanzo returns to his bedroom only to discover that Biscuit and his own body are missing, discovering that the rest of the room is empty. He finds Marayam's Nen beast to be smaller, but more menacing, believing that the Nen beast will not distinguish between friend and foe.
