Neuro - Supernatural Detective Season 1 - Episode 25

Neuro is stabbed by spears over an altar that drains his power, and Sai is about to cut him open until Yako stops him. Yako reveals she has figured out who Sai was. Sai becomes shocked by the truth. An earthquake shakes the altar and Neuro is reawakened to full power. He reveals the altar is an entrance to hell and is now opening. Sai collapses from exhaustion after losing to Neuro. Everyone leaves the pyramid as the ground has become unstable with the opening of hell. Neuro says goodbye to Yako as he flies towards the portal and uses all his powers to seal the gate. Yako notes that all has returned to normal, though Neuro hasn't come back. The episode's "epilogue" is after a short time skip; Sasazuka and Ishigaki are at a crime scene, and Ishigaki notes that it's much quieter now that the detectives aren't around. Yako is seen at the now-barren office, having finished packing all of the mystery-related items away. Akane is revealed to be "dead" again because of Neuro's lack of demonic influence. Godai enters the office and says a sad but gruff goodbye, now that Neuro isn't there to enslave him anymore. Yako resigns herself to a life without Neuro, when two men enter the office, one of them begging Yako to save him from death before being yanked away. Yako, confused, muses over what happened at the door, while, in the background, colour returns to Akane's white body. A hand reaches out and grabs Yako's head, and Yako, though in pain, delightedly turns around to see Neuro, returned, on the ceiling, the scent of mystery on the tip of his tongue.

The examiners declare the next phase is to test their cooking skills, much to the candidates' disbelief. The test requires pork, so the candidates are sent to find pigs in the forest. However, the pigs living inside the forest are carnivorous and tear through the candidates. Thanks to Gon, they discover the pigs' weakness and they manage to each get one for their cooking. Upon tasting the candidates' cooking, Buhara gives a pass but Menchi fails all of them. Knowing the candidates will riot, Satotz informs Chairman Netoros of the Hunter Selection Committee to make an appearance. Netoros arrives to correct Menchi's habit of getting biased whenever it's related to cooking. Netoros allows Menchi to stay on as examiner, and she gives the candidates a retest: boil eggs laid by spider eagles on Mt. Split-in-Half. The candidates ride on Netoros' airship to the mountain where they learn they have to jump down a potentially fatal height to get the eggs. Having seen and learnt how Menchi gets her egg, Gon leads some of the other candidates into successfully getting their own. Some candidates are killed while rashly trying to get their eggs while others refuse to take the leap. Out of the 50 candidates who survive to reach Phase Two, 42 candidates now remain.

Hisoka then becomes the first applicant to pass this phase. Meanwhile, the team suspects Majitani's real condition. The female prisoner challenges Leorio to have a betting game instead. Leorio agrees and bets ten hours that Majitani is alive, which he wins. Next, he bets twenty hours on Majitani feigning unconsciousness. To confirm, he brings Majitani to the edge of the platform and threatens to drop him. Seeing that, the prisoner changes her bet to forty hours on Majitani being conscious. When he is about to be dropped by Leorio, Majitani moves and admits defeat, putting the score at 2 - 1 in favor of Leorio's team. However, they only have 20 hours left to wager

Hunter x Hunter (2011) Season 1 - Episode 8

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.
