SummaryEdit

Gon and Killua - Ep 41

Gon and Killua open the Hunter website

After arriving at Yorknew City, Gon and Killua visit an internet cafe to gather more information on Greed Island. After entering the URL for the Hunter-only website that Milluki had given Killua, the two successfully access the Hunter Association website. Gon swipes his Hunter License and enters his license code to gain access. The website enters a virtual tavern which Gon senses is giving off Nen. The two decide to talk to the Hunter Website Bartender to see if they can find any information on Greed Island.

By depositing a large fee for the information, the two learn that Greed Island is a game created by Nen practitioners. Each copy of the game has Nen infused within it, and in order to play the game, the player must also be a Nen user. Once a player starts the game, they are pulled into the world of Greed Island. Players cannot simply leave the game by cutting the power to the console. If you die within the game, you die in real life. The two are also told that one person once hired 50 Nen users to enter the game, with none returning alive. While the game is indeed out of print, seven copies will be in the Yorknew auction with a starting bid of 8.9 billion Jenny, a price higher than the two had expected. In order to participate in the auction, the two decide to raise money by looking for rare treasures online and then reselling them. Although they start off doing well, by the end of the day the two are unsuccessful in their pursuit of funds.

Nostrade Bodyguards

The new Nostrade Bodyguards


Meanwhile at Nostrade's Mansion, Kurapika and three other applicants brought in the items from the item hunt. The head bodyguard, Dalzollene, hires all of them on the spot. He explains what their first mission will be—escorting the boss to a hotel in Yorknew. Kurapika is skeptical and asks about potential enemies of the boss. Dalzollene quickly puts Kurapika in his place and tells him not to concentrate on the enemies, but on the objective at hand. Dalzollene then leads the four to their boss. On the way there, they pass an apparent human-like art piece on the wall. Baise questions it to which Dalzollene states that it was a past bodyguard whom they will be replacing. The group enters an extremely lavish, pink-themed room. In the back sits their boss, the young woman, Neon Nostrade. On the outskirts of Yorknew, members of the Phantom Troupe are beginning to convene. The leader sits and waits for all the members to arrive before giving out his orders.

Not very far off, Kurapika and his fellow bodyguards lead their boss to her hotel in Yorknew. Dalzollene, who is in one of the cars with Neon, asks her to use her ability Lovely Ghostwriter, to give fortunes to men familiar with her father. The cars then unknowingly pass by four members of the Troupe walking towards Yorknew on the side of the road. The members discuss that this is the first time they've all been called together in over three years and that Hisoka is a new member. Back with the Nostrade's, Dalzollene phones the real boss, Neon's father, to report the results of her fortune telling. From the fortunes, the two realize that the auction will be too unsafe for Neon and decide that she will be unable to attend.

As the day wanes, nearly all the members of the Phantom Troupe have gathered, except Hisoka. He soon arrives, and the leader gives his orders. He states that they will be taking everything that is up for auction, and if anyone tries to interfere, they have his permission to kill them. Looking off into the sunset, Kurapika is certain that the Phantom Troupe will make an appearance at the auction.
