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.

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

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 issue 1 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 whatever.

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 read more

My oh my, what an enjoyable read this have been. It's a short experience, as the manga only has 14 chapters for you to enjoy. After 14 chapters of being in the Monster Hunter world, which would much more befittingly could be called 'Dragon Hunter', I have to say I am excitingly impressed!

If one thing is noticeable about Monster Hunter, then it is it's amazing artwork. I have not yet seen a scene in a chapter where no time was put in. The characters looks astonishing and some of the artwork when consisting of villages were a sight to behold as well. The monsters looks read more

So Monster Hunter Orage is a Manga written by Hiro Mashima, the same Hiro Mashima that is writing Fairy Tail and wrote Rave Master.

Monster Hunter Orage was a short Manga only 14 chapters and it felt rushed. Even so i enjoyed it to the fullest.

The story was a typical Hiro Mashima story. The really strong MC with something many others don't have in this case it was the forbidden seal, and the rest for example the girl he meets in the beggining and the rival and they work together for a similiar goal. Even tho it was like many others i still liked it read more
