Hunter X Hunter (2011) 07 and 08

Hunter X Hunter (2011) 07 Showdown × On × The Airship is the continuation of the Hunter X Hunter (2011).

All the candidates are told by Beans, Neteros' secretary to get their dinner and rest and prepare for the third phase the next morning. Tonpa tries to commit sabotage again by trying to keep Kurapika and Leorio awake for the whole night, but is exasperated to find that none of them fall for his tricks. Gon and Killua explore the airship, and Killua tells Gon that he is actually from a family of assassins. He wished to strike out on his own, which his family has not taken lightly. Neteros arrives and tests both boys' instinct and asks how they felt about the difficulty of the exam. Neteros invites both of them to a game, whoever can grab the ball he is holding before dawn will immediately pass the exam. Gon and Killua find it too hard to pass up, but discovers that with Neteros' skills, they are unable to grab the ball. Eventually Killua realizes that with their skills, they will never be able to take the ball from Neteros for a year, if he keeps it up. Killua retires, but then takes it out on two candidates who harass him, by maiming and killing them. Gon continues trying to grab the ball, and uses a headbutt on Neteros. The old man realizes that Gon will crack his skull if he continues with his headbutt, so he uses his right hand to push Gon away from him. Gon then tells Neteros then he has managed to get him to use his right hand once, which he had not used from the start of the challenge. After his speech, Gon falls asleep from exhaustion.

Hunter X Hunter (2011) 08 Solution × Is × Majority Rules? is the continuation of the Hunter X Hunter (2011).

The airship reaches Trick Tower, the Phase Three site, which is a tall featureless pillar built on an equally high platform. The candidates are told that to pass Phase 3, they have to climb down from the top to the base of the tower. An experienced rock climber candidate tries to climb down but is eaten by some flying monsters. Later, Kurapika finds that more than half of the candidates have discovered hidden doors to go inside the tower, which Gon finds one as well. However, the catch is that there are many hidden doors, each one can be only used once and only one person can fit through a door, which means they have to split up. When they try out different doors, they realize that they end up in the same room. In the room, Gon's group are given instructions and special wristwatches for five of them to follow the majority, but they cannot proceed without a fifth member. Lippo, one of the Phase 3 examiners tells them this while explaining they have chosen the path of majority rule. They will need to cooperate in order to pass this phase. Tonpa eventually joins in as the fifth member, and the exam proceeds. By following majority rule, the group eventually reaches an arena, where they have to face prisoners hired by Lippo to become combatants. Lippo explains that to pass, all they have to do is to win three rounds. But the prisoners are given reduced sentences by one year for every hour they manage to keep the candidates here. Tonpa volunteers to go first, pitting himself against a combatant named Bendot. Tonpa immediatey gives up, leading to Leorio accusing him of sabotaging candidates, which he admits to do every year. Kurapika stops Leorio, saying that this is part of their plan to make them fight each other and waste time. Gon goes next against Sedokan, a jailed serial bomber.
