Err you might wanna spoiler tag the Ant King's name. It's supposed to a surprise in the story arc. That being said his character design looks pretty awesome and so does Neferpito. I thought we might get info on a new OP or ED this week but I guess that'll come next week. Can't wait for the arc.

One of the frames on the left page also has a picture that can arguably be considered a spoiler.

I've been keeping up but I don't remember that... being... er, revealed, yet? Well, technically it was by spoiler[that scissors guy] but spoiler[he just said it, it wasn't shown, was it?]

It's the one with spoiler[Biscuit in her true form that looks like a dude from Fist of the North Star or Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.]

Also, this is probably a technical difficulty but the article URL and the talk thread still have the King spoiler in them (spoiler in pic: http://i.imgur.com/​2JDRUWr.​png)

The king looks amazing. Really hoping kamiyan or fukuyama voices him. They just sound...so perfect as him. I imagine next week or the week after they'll announce the seiyuus for the new characters and the new ending (and hopefully op because do you SERIOUSLY want YOU CAN SMILE AGAIN during a arc like this?)

Didn't Togashi say one of his motivations the last time he was working on the manga was that he wanted to stay ahead of the new anime? Apparently, that's going to be a problem again if he doesn't come off his hiatus soon Laughing .

The ant arc is about as long as all the previous arcs combined so the anime (assuming it continues the 2 chapters per episode pace) will have 2 years before it gets close...and theres another good 13 episodes of material to adapt even after the ant arc ends. Togashi should come out of haitus way before that happens.

They haven't been doing 2 chapters per episode, been ranging between 3 and 5ish since end of Yorknew with outliers above and below. I prefer this brisk pacing; there's a nice sense of progression every episode and something interesting happening

In regards to catching up to manga
spoiler[ I think the manga is going to just animate up to the end of the Election arc and then end or take a break there. A nice sense of finality to this part of Gon's journey with him accomplishing his goal. Madhouse can always animate more in the future so a break after 339 in my opinion would be a great spot]

That would be a perfect ending and its pretty much what im expecting to happen unless togashi/madhouse surprises us. Still we should get at least a year and half more of the anime.

He's actually inspired from Cell according to Togashi
