Synopsis

Chap 239 - Killua affected by the Ortho siblings' ability

Killua affected by the Ortho Siblings' ability

Killua continues to bleed from the wounds sustained from Ikalgo's flea bullets, looking for a way out of the cave when he hears a tune in his head and his hand is suddenly pierced by a fish-shaped dart. Left stunned by the attack because he didn't feel any warning, he is struck again in the stomach, and the top of his body dons the pattern of a dartboard. Two more fish strike the center, piercing Killua's abdomen and leaving him unable to pinpoint the location of the attacks as he begins hearing a voice in his head, which is from the brother of the Ortho Siblings.

He tells Killua that he may be able to figure out what's happening if he lives long enough, pulling out the two darts from the board and causing the two fish to disappear from Killua's abdomen. But Killua's wounds begin to bleed, and he understands that they're Nen fish, still confused as to why he couldn't sense them before they struck him. Fish darts continue to pierce Killua's body, coming in waves of three. Killua runs to look at himself in a pool of water, seeing the pattern on his body and realizing that the Chimera Ant's ability is a game of darts.

Chap 239 - Killua enduring the barrage of fish darts

Killua enduring the barrage of fish darts

The brother congratulates him on his realization, but adds that it is useless because the darts cannot be stopped whatsoever since they don't exist until the very moment they pierce his body. Another fish dart stabs Killua in his left shoulder as he quickly rips it out. The brother reveals that he is throwing at a dartboard whose segments are linked to various locations on Killua's body, which are worth different points. He continues to explain things to Killua, disappointed that he's not screaming out and hoping that he's not dead already since the game isn't over. Killua's expression becomes more exhausted and angry as he endures the onslaught.

At a bar somewhere, the sister compliments her brother on his skill, and he says that he's putting himself at risk as well. The Ortho Siblings' Nen ability is called Needlefish De Darts. It begins when a pin created by the sister is attached to a target, which activates the game. In addition, the pin cannot be removed by anyone, including the siblings, until the game ends. The brother throws his darts at the dartboard, and the larger fish darts appear on the target at the corresponding location. It cannot be dodged as the darts only exist once they touch the body. But it comes with a heavy cost: if the brother misses the final shot and goes bust, all the damage gets reflected back onto the siblings. The brother declares that the two are invincible and asks his sister why. She says because they have the greatest confidence in each other. Another fish dart pierces Killua in the stomach, making him spit up blood as he says it's not yet time.
