well i'd agree with you totaly on that it drags out for ever and then when there comes some action its allways the same small steps
1. good guy beat up bad guy
2.bad guy beats good guy and it all looks bad
3. good guy prevails and show some kind of hiden power and boom ... winning...
now i'd say i don't mind that aspect as much as the point where you've watched 20 episoden yet all you've realy aquired is nothing more then what could have ben shortend down to maybe 2 ep's
im not one to judge .. ive newer realy cared for the anime / manga etc so im not one to judge
