Keep watching. Don't skip anything. If you skipped to Greed Island, you'd miss some of the series' highlights.

The Tower Arc is great, and Yorkshin is amazing. Greed Island isn't the best arc in the series by any means, but it is also great.

I'd say that the Hunter Exam is by far the weakest part of the 2011 anime. So I think you'll start to really enjoy it soon enough.

Yorknew is when it gets amazing, which iirc starts in the early 40s

But HxH is always really enjoyable imo

From just a comprehension standpoint, skipping arcs would be a really bad idea, as you'd miss on the introduction and explanation of the power system HXH uses for the rest of the way.

Hiatus x Hiatus is only enjoyable if you find scribbles amusing.

it wasn't that good early on don't listen to these guys

the next arc is alright though and the one after is ****ing amazing.

greed island isn't very good i'm not sure why you would skip to it. at least skip to the one before it

If you are watching the new series, I can't blame you. While the hunter exam is a bit slow and more for building some things up, the old series does that section and other early material substantially better.

Once you get to the tower, new series is better, and its up to debate which is which for yorkshin (I personally say old because of the soundtrack usage), with new Greed island generally being better then old series (though I would say the dodgeball game itself is better in the old).


But yeah, give it some time and don't just skip ahead. While the new series isn't as good as the old one at making the hunter exam and other early material look good, it does get through that material faster so you can get to the other stuff sooner.
