Gyro’s Past | Hunter x Hunter (2011) | Evil × And × Terrible

What is it?

Here is a YouTube video that is a clip of one of the best scenes (unfortunately the English version was removed so I had to use the original Japanese version which is not as good in my opinion) that I have seen so far in the anime television show Hunter x Hunter (2011) from episode 80 (Evil × And × Terrible) that was the back story of a character named Gyro that we never even got to see in the show but they still took the time to tell an emotional short story about his rough life:

What is it about?

This is how Fandom describes this:

Gyro, in his childhood, experienced many abuses from his drunk father.

Getting beaten, learning to sleep without any emotions or movement in fear of making a sound in bed that might wake his father, even learning to control his bladder at night.

Even so, he still saw his father as a God from the lesson, “Don’t make trouble for others” and Gyro took by that advice. No matter how cruel his father would be, he continued to idolize him for two reasons: when Gyro was five, he got a fever that almost killed him, but his father stayed all night taking care of him and his father never asked or ordered him to leave from their home.

However, Gyro’s feelings towards his father changed when a guy from his work revealed that the only reason his father let him stay was because he brought money and his neighbor was the one who actually took care of him when he was sick. His father did nothing. Gyro snapped after hearing the truth and attacked the guy, but was badly beaten. Bloody on the ground, his father glanced at him while walking by and never helped him. He now knew his father never cared for him and the lessons he taught were for his own benefits. He realized that the world never gave him a single thing. He stood up, grabbed a hammer and killed his father. Nine years later, Gyro founded and ruled NGL, to ruin life by distributing Drug D². In the present, Yunju’s team has killed Gyro’s soldiers and took over the hidden drug factory.

My Thoughts

Me and my brother GC thought that it was pretty amazing that they somehow managed to make this scene so good while still being short, and that it was about a background character that you never get to see but they still put the time and effort in making this scene good.

The music was good, the narration was good, the story was good, the animation enhanced the scene, and this all combined to make a standout emotional scene that brought life to this character even though you never get to see him other than this scene from his younger days.

The end,
