Synopsis

Chap 212 - Killua using his yo-yos to fend off Shoot's hands

Killua using his yo-yos to fend off Shoot's hands

Killua begins his battle with Shoot, unnerved by the three floating hands. He wonders what Shoot's ability is and if he should attack first, but quickly calms himself and uses Gyo, confirming that Shoot isn't using In and that the three hands are really floating. He deduces that Shoot is a Manipulator and worries about the floating cage, wondering why he would need it if he uses the hands to attack. He knows that he can't let the hands touch him, pulling out his yo-yos and spinning them around himself. Shoot takes note of them and sends in the three hands to attack, but Killua deftly deflects all the incoming strikes.

Impressed by Killua's skill, Shoot suddenly rushes forward right in front of him, and as Killua worries that the hands were just decoys, Illumi's face and voice suddenly enter his mind and tell him to jump back. Killua tries to fight against it and says that he should zap him, but Shoot lands a powerful strike to Killua's face, sending him far back. Killua says that his body can't move, and Shoot notices that his reaction speed wavered. Killua describes it as Illumi's spell and is internally conflicted over what to do, but realizes that he has to break the habit, adding that he has to give it his all since Shoot deserves that respect.

But all of sudden, the vision in Killua's left eye appears blurry, and the left side of his face is shown to be missing. Shoot rushes in and attempts to land a hard right, but Killua quickly dodges back, confused and in disbelief about what's happened to his face. Shoot realizes that Killua's reaction time has returned and wonders if the earlier moment was a fluke. Illumi's instructions to flee after taking unknown damage fill Killua's head and Killua says that the spell saved him, but he can't win that way. Shoot sends in his flying hands again, and Killua uses his yo-yos to fend them off, but suddenly spots Shoot in his blind spot, quickly dodging another of his punches.

Killua realizes that he's doing nothing but running away, and that he has never really fought any of his battles. He then drops his yo-yos and suddenly charges at Shoot, fending off the flying hands with his fists and declaring to himself that he won't run away anymore. He secretly prepares an electric shock behind his back, but Shoot says it out loud before Killua can use it and quickly backs away to avoid the trap. Illumi's words flood Killua's mind again, telling him not to follow too far, and as Killua fights against his brother's spell, he asks Shoot how he knew about the electricity.
