About the Author
Yoshihiro Togashi's manga career began in 1986 at the age of 20, when he won the coveted Osamu Tezuka Award for new manga artists. He debuted in the Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1989 with the romantic comedy Tende ShÃ´waru Cupid. From 1990 to 1994 he wrote and drew the hit manga YuYu Hakusho, which was followed by the dark comedy science-fiction series Level E and the adventure series Hunter x Hunter.

Thank you for reading this review!
The volume begins with a surprising revelation regarding Mereum; one which will drastically change the course of the battle between the ants and humans. Nevertheless, Mereum is still undeterred from his goal of the previous volume: to find that person who is important to him. And so the search begins, whilst an increasingly anxious Pouf tries to stall him. This is the setup for the arc, and to say anymore would spoil the surprise at the end of it. I can say, however, that Gon is practically nowhere to be seen in this volume, which is understandable, given the emotional and physical trauma he has endured. Fortunately, Killua is, and they're a few surprise faces too that you may not have expected to see.
Having to conclude this arc was an unenviable task, I felt. This is because there were numerous routes that Togashi (the mangaka) could've chose to go down. But thankfully, he chooses the right way to end such a superb arc. The finale is highly emotional and caused me to cry when reading it. This is thanks to the beautiful artwork on display, as well as fantasic writing. They say a picture tells a thousand words, and never had this been more true, then at the touching double page spread at the end of this arc. Even now, upon writing, I still get teary eyed just thinking about it. Overall, there can be no complaints about the ending of this arc. It is perfect, and I for one was left with a lingering feeling of sadness and regret. In a good way, though.
Of course, all good things must come to an end, and therefore, the beginning of a new arc begins straightaway. A group called the Zodiacs are introduced and their members consist of visually striking members to say the least, including a surprising face. This new arc is called the chairman election arc and will continue in the next volume out in December 2013.
Overall, this is a highly recommended volume, and a manga series in general. The end is perfect and everything is wrapped up pretty well. If this arc started with the beastlike savagery of the ants, then it concludes with a touching display of heartfelt human emotion. Superb.
