Underneath the surface of the Earth lies the Inner World, a realm where a war rages on between intelligent spiders and the invading humanoid insects known as Insectors. However, the spiders are not alone, as "Spider Riders"—humans from the Outer World, known as Earthens in the Inner World, that are chosen by the Oracle—fight alongside them. Filled with wondrous tales of a mysterious pyramid and entrusted with his grandfather's journal, a young boy called Hunter Steele sets out on an exploration. There, his destined meeting with the Oracle occurs, and he is transported into the Inner World as a Spider Rider.

Finding himself lost and confused in the middle of a forest, Hunter crosses paths with a giant spider named Shadow. Although reluctant, Shadow agrees to fight by his side. He then meets Corona—a skilled Spider Hunter and kind girl with a penchant for normal life. She shows him the ropes of being a Spider Rider, and educates him about the fate of the Inner World if the Insectors continue their tyrannical reign.

Thus begins the story of Hunter Steele, a heedless young boy on a quest to save the Inner World. But his task of retrieving the four Oracle Keys holding the Oracle's true power will lead him to an ultimate clash against Mantid, leader of the Insectors.

Another of my favorite anime goes unreviewed, so I'll try my best. Spider Riders is an anime that gets a lot of negativity, at least from the few people who have actually heard of it. This is somewhat justifiable, considering the butchered dub that most viewers were exposed to. However, the original Japanese version is worth giving a try.
Note: Although SR was aired as 2 separate series in Japan due to ratings, it was intended to only be one, and was properly aired as such in the rest of the world. Thus, this review will reflect the entire series, not just the first 26 episodes.

There is actually a total of 52 episodes. This is a much underloved and underrated series. It has a great, unique and interesting story line. It has some great character development and growth as well. It's fun action filled and it even manages to throw in some neat twists and turns. I highly recommend looking it up and watching it for yourself. The characters are fun, full of personality the Inner World is imaginative. A select group of warriors are chosen by the Spirit Oracle (basically like a goddess) to obtain a manacle and become a Spider Rider. These warriors ride on huge read more

Ah, Spider Riders. A timeless classic. Lets peep this out.

Spider Riders in Japan sure might have been a non gamer moment but the English dub guys decided "hey lets make some money" and decided to hire the entire cast of Daddy Day Care to bring us the brilliant opening that I do not know the name of yet but I like to call it "Calling of Spider Riders". I listen to this OP about 5 times a day and I plan to keep up this pace until the day I die.

Alright lets get down and dirty on the plot. The plot at first may seem read more
