>Get to chimera ant arc
>Pacing goes to shit

Why
>>
Because thats where the original anime ended so the team couldn't just use the 1999 episodes for reference.
>>
Read the manga.

Just wait until you finish the Chimera Ant arc. Things start to get weird.
>>
>>120028254
Then don't complain about the pacing.
>>
>>120028162
Could be a good theory, except they never followed the 99 pacing.
>>
>>120028254
Reading the manga means holding physical, translated tanks. Not crappy scans on your screen.
>>
>>120028162
>>120028624
Probably they drop so much the pacing in order to milk it more, since they knew tons of people would only watch/buy this part because it wasn't adapted by the 99 version.
>>
>>120027984
>get to chimera ant arc
>suddenly have to follow 6 different perspectives at the exact same time
>wonder why the pacing changes
Gee, I wonder why an arc with so many different things occurring in different places is slower than the other arcs that strap a go-pro over gon's head and let the events unfold.

Yorknew city > Hunter exam > 13th chairman election > Heaven's tower > Greed Island > Chimera Ant
>>
>>120028759
Yeah but the chapter/episode ratio stayed pretty much the same throughout the whole show, except G.I. where it was faster.
>>
>>120028836
Yorkshin and CA are the best in the manga. Yorkshin sucks in 2011, exam hunter is pretty nice there though.
>>
>>120028836
No, Greed Island is complete shit. Also, the second part of the Chimera arc is a decent one.

They aren't cool
>>
>>120030219
I never said they were.

But the point if they all start the same way. When the enemy knows this they have no idea what attack he's going to pull off, how they should defend. It's hard to read.

Killua even said this when he used paper on Knuckle, where it was effective. Also when he used scissors on the ant, he couldn't tell.


It works because at first you'll be surprised because it starts the same but different move, then you'll still be guessing which one he's going to pull

>>120030343
The point is the previous poster seemed bored by Gon's skillset. It wasn't really about how good they are.

>he point is the previous poster seemed bored by Gon's skillset. It wasn't really about how good they are.
Oh I get it, when it's all flashy big moves that get repeated all the time people will complain.

But when it's actually a move set that makes sense, has practical uses in combat it's not flashy or cool enough.

Did you miss the point where Gon was an enhancer and it was said they usually just strengthened their natural abilities? His ability is cool I think, and it's pretty smart when you think into it. It's just that he hasn't developed his skills enough I'd say
>>
>>120029088
This arc is nowhere as painfully padded in the manga.
>>
>>120030511
i love you
>>
>>120030784
Pretty sure it was exactly the same, off the top of my had I can't remember any changes
>>
>>120030895
It was the exact same.

The thing is, the chapters that took place in under <20 seconds could be read in a minute, so when you read ten chapters and less than a minute passes in-universe it's not a huge problem. When you watch a 23 minute episode that tries to adapt the same amount of material, it just feels a lot slower, even if the same stuff is happening.
>>
>>120030784
Yeah no, some of the palace invasion episodes could do 3 chapters and still feel like nothing happened.
>>
>>120030895
It's not about changes, it's about execution. Reading Togashi's manga is not the same as taking slow rehashes cut into 20 minutes long segment full of time wasting padding.
>>
I just miss Kurapika ;_;

>>120031068

I really can't remember it doing this, and I do usually notice it.

It was just a lot of explanation for a short amount of time

>>
>>120033876
Well the 'punch good' thing makes sense since he's an enhancer, but i wish he kept the fishing rod
>>
>>120034044
Reminder. Gon is not a real person. Nen is not real. Nothing in Hunter x Hunter is real.
Only reason Gon is enhancer is because the writer made him so, and he made him so that he could have the punch good power.
Punching came first, nen category came second.

Dragonball reference?

Err, Chimera Ants' pacing was actually pretty smooth - neither too fast nor too slow, covering over a hundred chapters in 60 episodes. Most pacing issues in the anime were fixed by the beginning of the Greed Island arc.
>>
>>120034147
If it fits well within to context of the series' power system, does it really matter?
>>
>>120034785
But it's boring and main character punches hard is done to death.
The Nen is a system that allows literally anything and best thing the writer came up with is a fucking super punch and not really used paper and scissors attacks.
>>
>>120030784
It's the same exact thing. But hurr durr mango is always bestest
>>
>>120034960
I think that fits Gon's personality well, which is reflected by the story's in-world Enhancer archetype, so personally I don't mind it. Especially since Gon actually employs some neat tactics to diversify his otherwise one-dimensional attacks.
>>
I really liked the slow narration for the raid and the build up.
I wish it was longer ;_;

In the middle of CA arc atm
Is Knuckle's ability conjuration, emission or something else?
Someone explain this shit to me
>>
>>120036587
emission

the difference between emission and conjuration often comes down to whether a normal person can see it or not (only nen users see emitted hatsu)
>>
>>120028254
You do know there are takobon releases
>>
>>120036587
It is never explicitly stated. My best guess is that it is conjuration. IIRC, the little shit never leaves the target's side, even though it only works when Knuckle is near by. That sounds like conjuration, I think Kurapika's master said something about conjured objects not disappearing even if the conjurer is not around.

And the pacing is weird because way too many characters get introduced and they all are the center of attention for a while. Not to mention that halfway through the arc has training as its main focus. Honestly, there are quite a few things that rubbed me the wrong way with this arc, but overall it is amazing. It is only topped by the York New Arc. Even still the best fight in the series happens in CA and they've got the best main villain to date. I think Chrollo has the potential to be a better villain then Meruem, but right now the king is at the top.

In the anime, the narrator were FUCKING annoying - especially when it goes bound and beyond explaining shit in the Chimera arc

I understand some of the more technical stuff needs explanation for people who havent read the manga, - for example when Netero and Killua's grandfather invaded the palace and we have an entire episode that spans literally 10 seconds with so much going on.

However there were also moments where the narrator were not necessary at all and overstepped it bounds. For example when a character is thinking - there is no need for the narrator to say:

"And right now Killua is thinking on whether this would be the last time he'll ever see Gon."

They broke the first rule of visual storytelling, show, don't tell.

Thankfully this were all gone by Election arc and we're back on wacky hijinks again

The pacing was definitely the worst part of the arc. The final couple episodes are godlike, but it doesn't exactly make up for the shitty pacing.
