Key visual looks okayish I guess, not very impressed by it. I've heard of the franchise before so curious to see how they plan this out.

Looks like anime for kids....

Rathalos and Rathian look childish and don't look terrifying at all unlike in the game, and they're being mounted by kids!? Pfft....what a shame

Big creatures in anime are almost always CGI these days.

This is interesting.
I played amost every Monster Hunter game. Pretty much grew up with it.
Hope this will be good.

This is not based on the main monster hunter games but rather it's spin off game monster hunter stories.

Nope, because it is confirmed that DiU is going to be 39 at least (but more likely 42 because they would choose the wrong part to make it pure 3 cour) so it will end in December-January, but my hope is that they could start part 5 in summer.

The BDs weren't split in Stardust Crusaders, and the episode count remained the same into season 2, so far this seems like the same way it was split cour. With this cour going spring-summer, and resuming the last 13 in winter. No broadcast confirmations have been made on whether it will air continuously for those episodes.

I [always] like the promotional visuals. The characters look good as to the design for the village and background. But the monsters are CGI and look a bit stiff. Ah well.

Other than that...ON THAT EPIC MECHA 'ISH! (XD)
AND THAT MH MUSIC!
"Raidaaaaaaaaaa on!" Let's go! Sure I'll check it out.

Looking forward to Shuval, Ryuto's senpai Dan, Simone, and the hunter.

I can imagine many rivals?
