Synopsis

It is a world full of monsters and adventurers who hunt them. They are called Monster Hunters. The plot revolves around a young Monster Hunter, Shiki. When Shiki was a young boy, he was taken as an apprentice to a Monster Hunter named Gurelli, but it was not too long after that Gurelli was killed by a gunpowder accident. After a few years, he comes back to Akamaaya Town (where his master resided) to join the guild there. In that guild, he meets a girl called Irie and after a series of events, he finds that she is the daughter of his master. From this point onwards, they form a party to find the legendary Miogaruna, which was Gurelli's life-long ambition.

I've only read 4 chapters so this review may be changed later... Who am I kidding, I've been using this site nearly a year and this is my first review. It's not gonna change -_-

Enjoyment:
I'll start out on a positive note by saying that I was pleasantly surprised with how well these first few chapters turned out. As 95% of you know, this was based off a video game. I own one of them and, although I suck at it -_-, I still recognised some of the equipment and most of the monsters in the manga, which I was impressed by. There is actually a read more

How far would you go to accomplish your goals? Would you stake your life against ruthless wyverns and fiendish dragons with only a blunt blade and a few companions to depend on? That is the duty of a Monster Hunter.

Reminiscent of his other works, Hiro Mashima delivers an uncomplex short series packed full of predictable outcomes and uninspired tropes, based on the popular role-playing game, Monster Hunter. Taking big steps in the start of the manga and mainly appealing to fans of the game ultimately leads to a second half that falls flat.

Prior knowledge of the game itself is not necessary to follow and understand read more

Ok, to start off, this Manga is based on Capcom's game Monster Hunter.The game being widely popular in Japan and Monster Hunter being the best selling PSP game its not surprising that they made a manga adaption for it.

Story: the story revolves around the protagonist Shiki and his quest to find the legendary Miogaruna. Nothing too original but a decent standing point for the story, if you've played the game you'll easily find the story interesting because there are tons of game related experience they'll show.
(7/10 yeah, like i said nothing too special)

Art: there points where the art are well drawn. Like most of the read more

So I'm a huge fan of the Monster Hunter games, so you could imagine how excited I was when I heard there was a manga. I saw all the volumes at Barns & Nobles and decided to read one. I opened it and was disappointed to see the art of Fairy Tail. Now that's just preference. I personally don't like the art of Fairy Tail, but whateves.
The Monster Hunter games have always been lacking in the story department, so I figured a manga would be really cool, cuz they could actually expand on story, but nope. It's like I'm reading the read more
