What They Say
Gon's mighty adventure in search of his father continues, and this time he is forced to pawn his own Hunter license to raise some cash. Gon and his posse chance upon a silent auction bazaar along the way and meet a stranger named Zepile, who introduces them to the seedy world of rare item appraisal. But the real trickery likes in Nobunaga's effort to recruit Gon to join the troupe!

The Review
While Kurapika faces off against one of the spiders in an attempt to find answers, Gon, Killula, and Leorio are attempting to raise enough money to purchase one of the copies of Greed Island that is up for auction. They pawn Gon's Hunter license to raise seed money, then offer a reward for anyone offering accurate information on the location or identity of any of the Spiders. While wandering through the bazaar, they stumble across another way to make money almost by accident. Using Nen, they find pieces that have a slight aura and attempt to buy them, intending to resell them at a higher price. They run into unexpected competition for most of the items they bid on, in the form of a young man named Zepile.

Zepile is an appraiser with an interesting past who rescues the trio from a potentially costly blunder and agrees to work with them. He's intrigued by the challenge, and by Gon. He gives them quite an education in forgery techniques, that turns out to be helpful later. When they receive a real lead on the location of two of the Spiders, they leave the auction of a valuable collection in his hands and run off to meet the challenge.

The Spiders are not a group to underestimate, however, and the two boys end up being captured and questioned, with no real hope of escape. Despite the slowdown during the explanation of the forgery techniques, the pacing in this volume is overall much better than some of the previous volumes, with some real progress being made in several branches of the story. Hunter x Hunter is fun, definitely a guilty pleasure, and has a charm that is uniquely its own.
