So does that mean theres another Monster Hunter manga besides Orage?

I'd have loved to see an OVA or something based of the main part of the franchise instead of the Felyne game...

I'm still looking forward to it though.

Airu, I like those cats not necessarily the cutest of the bunch, but a bit unique, I'll watch this.

That'd be too good to be true.

Wow, never though I would see the day when Monster Hunter got some anime love. A shame it's only a spin-off though.

what ever it is, its based on a massively popular game so it may be good or bad depending on how they do it, im still watching it though.

No you don't understand.
It's a anime based on the Game with the Felynes, not the real deal. :'(
Good enough for me. It's step 1.
