And he just beats everyone immediately anyway... What was even the point of having him take the Exam at this point if it's entirely inconsequential? And it kinda takes away from the initial weight of him having failed the first time, although so much has happened since then that it's not really a factor anymore. Obviously he had to officially become a Hunter eventually, but I would've much rather they given him another real Exam, rather than just randomly sticking it in the middle of another arc and having it be completely pointless.
But that was only the very beginning of the episode. Once they completely forget that this was ever a part of the story, they go right back to normal Greed Island business. I was wondering how Kurapika factored in when I saw the preview last week, but that makes sense.
