Well I enjoyed the episode but the pacing really upsets me at the same time, so mixed feelings here.

I will say that for some reason Morg had much more personality in this episode than last episode. She's better when she has good characters to bounce off of.

Source material readers tend to be a whiny bunch, but I think in this case it is wholly justified. I am quite shocked how fast this episode was myself. We barely had time to feel out the new cast members, then at blinding speed we're jumping to this new conflict already. It is going WAAAAAAY too fast.

I would have preferred if the material was better paced and I am not a reader of the manga. This anime is just encouraging me to read the manga instead.

As a Hunter x Hunter fan, I emphatically disagree .

Well it's been a good commercial for the manga for me...

Not sure this is a good argument. Hunter x Hunter is much longer as a shonen anime so far and it has fantastic visuals, at times just clearly blowing away anything magi's done so far out of the water.
