Rose (薔薇, Bara) is the 298th chapter of the Hunter × Hunter manga, written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi.

Synopsis

Isaac Netero about to use the miniature rose

Netero sacrificing himself

On the verge of dying, Netero responds to the King's earlier question that his name is "Meruem" and releases a tremendous amount of aura. As the King wonders what is happening, Netero declares to him that he knows nothing of the "bottomless malice within the human heart." This strikes the King to feel fear for the first time as Netero sits triumphant despite his current state. He immediately thrusts two fingers in his heart, thus activating his final attempt at retaliation. A flashback shows a doctor explaining to Netero that once his heart stops beating, the bomb itself will trigger.

Netero tells the King he will see him in hell if it exists. Realizing that he planned all of this from the very beginning, Meruem attempts to run away. However, it was too late for him as the Poor Man's Rose activates, destroying the tomb and plain they were fighting in. The bomb is stated to be a low budget weapon, but simultaneously destructive and lethal. Consuming millions of lives, an international treaty was signed banning the bomb's production. But over 80% of the countries rejected the proposal, leaving hundreds of thousands of "seeds" waiting to "bloom" in many countries.

Chap 298 - Pouf showing the true nature of the Ants

Pouf showing the true nature of the Ants

Witnessing the explosion from afar, Pouf and Youpi rush toward it and already know what the rumbling signifies. Meanwhile, Knuckle encounters one of Pouf's clones, who shows its true appearance and flies off to follow its main body; Knuckle remembers Knov's words about the Ants becoming mindless drones to the King, and wonders if Netero managed to kill him, his own spirits crushed after seeing an overwhelming obstacle on Pouf's face.

Upon seeing the ground zero of the Poor Man's Rose, Pouf is shaken with horror. However, Youpi snaps him back to reality and orders him to surround the area in case the explosion sent the King flying, while he himself will enter the flaming abyss to search for him. Admitting that he was wrong about the humans, Youpi tells him that once they find the King, they'll kill them all. The two of them begin to search around the area, with Youpi entering the chasm while Pouf breaks into hundreds of clones and searches everywhere. But as Youpi looks around the burning earth, he notices something that causes him to let out a blood-curdling scream.
