That much is obvious. That is why I use language like "expect" or "want," fully aware that what Togashi is doing to do will significantly deviate from my desire. It's not unreasonable for somebody to express what they want out of this series.
If this were an ongoing series that has over 40 chapters a year, I wouldn't bitch as much. But this series has been going on hiatuses for years now, and this could be another 10 chapters. I want this round of chapters to actually mean something, unlike the prior round where the story progressed very little. Of course there's that possibility this arc will go on for at least another 40 chapters, and we will have to deal with at least 2 years of hiatuses just to get this far.
Also, I don't think the Phantom Troupe will die in this arc. It still seems way too early, especially if Chrollo has a connection to the Dark Continent like some suggests he does. At the very least, I can't see the PT dying until they get to the continent. I count the actual Dark Continent stuff as its own arc, and this succession war as a separate arc. >kurapica is willing to die for the queen and wobble at this point. how many times does kurapica have to explain himself.
He is doing all of this to ensure he gets his family's eyes back. He is fully prepared to sacrifice everything for that goal; he is not sacrificing himself for the prince, but for a chance at getting back the eyes.
If it weren't for those eyes, he wouldn't even be on this ship in the first place. Saving the prince and queen he contracted with is just a bonus.
