Re: Hunter X Hunter
I didn't really find the pace slow, but then again, i'm accostumed to long ongoing animes, Episode 21 was Gon and friends deciding to go rescue Killua.
I warn you that while it's a fight shonen the arcs aren't full of unending battles, the conflicts are many times more personal and tactical, when there are fights they are relatively short and down to what matters. The next 2 arcs are very short, lasting some 15 episodes in total before Yorknew Arc, many say they only began to like HXH around some time vefore Yorknew so i advise you to in least reach that arc.
The arc before Yorknew isn't amazing but a lot of important things are explained there so i don't advise you to skip episodes.
