Just watch a little more, man. Yorknew's a great arc. Just give it that one more arc. And then it is followed by greed island which is pretty good too. Maybe stick to the old anime for these two. Especially for yorknew arc. But do watch it. Sometime. Somehow. HxH is the only shounen I like almost as much as OP. And most OP fans think that's the only shounen whose writing and arcs comes anywhere near OP's in the current on going shounen anime.
I've only ever dropped HxH once, at 26 episodes. Oddly enough I liked the first arc better in 30 episodes in the older series than I did in 20 in the new. I don't like the series much for whatever reason, shame really.
