    This chapter was revolutionary. It's the first time we've seen Gon, Killua, and Leorio in ages

    Maybe Togashi decided to show up cause Jump Force just announced Killua and Kurapika to the line up. As well as Urameshi and Toguro.

    There are plenty of cases where Togashi goes overboard with walls of text, including other parts of this chapter, but in this case I think it works. Predator's condition is that it's user (Rihan) has to understand his opponent's Nen abilities as accurately as possible, and after that, it creates a counter to it. With that in mind, Rihan going over the Nen Beast's details feels justified and the sort of thing a normal person would do in the same situation.

    I expected to see it reproducing endlessly throughout the soldiers & crew to create a kind of exponential effect before anything happened to the Prince. This feels like an interesting storyline that was just cut short.
    I kept expecting something to backfire terribly during the process.

    Feel like Koffing might still survive. There's no guarantee that it can't evolve or have an unexpected additional ability which will only play out later on.

    I'd prefer if it was just done with, though.

    This chapter on random bullshit power vs random bullshit power controlled by two characters we don't really know or care about is all super interesting and not boring at all.

    Maybe this will all be a lot better when it's eventually released by Madhouse in a few OVAs?

    I'm not holding my breath for that.

    Nothing thrills me more than watching anime characters discuss things and introspect.

    No, that is the power of everyone in this manga, is one of the base forms of nen, that even non nen users can use.

Since the nen ability looks like an annoying fly, it can also be used to trick someone into revealing if they can see nen. The fly apparently can be easily removed by its target if the person realizes it and if it is removed by force then it can never be used against that person again (this probably also counts if the target leaves the range).
    So, the ability is almost useless against Nen users, but extremely effectice against non-users as long as the targets remain in close range.
    Interestingly while the Prince shouldnt be a problem, under the current circumstances it might also be used against nen-users if they dont want to reveal their nen-affinity and recognize it as a nen fly, so they ignore it.

    I suppose Sale-Sale nen beast was not really destroyed, maybe one of its small clones can replace the main body. In that case, the time that takes for the fly to kill him may be enough for Ushouhi to become loyal to him.
    But then he would see the cloud, either above himself or a new one above Sale-Sale and realize that he still has his beast.

    I really thought more was going to come from the Fugetsu escape situation but it got resolved pretty quickly. Melody's determination to save her prince in the face of mounting opposition was good characterization. She was a great influence for Kurapika in the Yorknew Arc and its nice to see her get a chance to shine on her own. Please don't Pokkle her togashi.

    I personally like when Togashi gives us direct looks into characters thought processes and psyche but I can understand others not liking it. However, I think it should be quite obvious we are still in the setup portion of this arc. Crying how you don't care about any of these new characters when the author is still trying to show us which characters he wants us to care about is shortsighted and lazy. I can only imagine the whining you did during the beginning of the chimera ant arc. "Why are there so many ants with the queen? We won't be able to keep track of them all. Why isn't he focusing more on Gon and Killua? Why is that one ant getting upset with the other ants? I can't be bothered to keep up. They'll all probably die in a bomb or something. This arc is gonna suck lol."

    ...I do admit the bodyguard portion of this chapter was long and dry haha

    Personally, the succession war arc has a lot of similarity with the chimera ant arc. Namely, the focus more on the secondary characters instead of the main character (Gon & Killua in CA & Kurapika in SW) Even the election arc to a certain extend.

    While the chimera ant arc did throw a bunch of new characters at the readers, it work much better because: 1)The ant design were much better & had more variety than all the bodyguards wearing the same clothing 2) The numbers of ants were much lesser 3) We roughly know who the important ants were, namely the royal guard & the king ( & maybe the squaron leaders)

    I find it difficult to care for fodder bodyguard #37 when you know they are going to die...

    From my view, the chimera ant arc was the start of many of the phenomenons you describe. During the preparation of the palace invasion I caught myself thinking "dammit, how many of these stupid division commanders are left? No one cares about them anymore! Bring in the royal guards!" Then we had to sit through Sazan. And Leol. And Bloster. And Welfin shenanigans. It's basically part of Togashis defensive character esablishment: Draw a diverse set of players that could be developed in pretty much every direction. If you find an interesting pairing, take three or so pages to set up their characters, then have them fight for half a volume until you run out of ideas. Once your editor calls because he has run out of patience, kill off someone important so it looks like you are making progress, then continue playing mindgames with fodder.

    Especially when your idea of an interesting character is a murder hobo Cousin Itt who never once displayed any personality.
