    A nice change of pace
    As a fan of the whole monster hunter franchise I can say it's refreshing to have something different. This seems to be a more light hearted adaptation of the series aimed at possibly more of a younger audience and those who want a little more story to their monster hunter.

    Overall it's fairly easy to swallow on those who don't watch a lot of anime and includes little details from the main ...

    it seems alot of people dont get this is a spin-off
    obviously its for the monster hunter stories game where you ride the monsters. but people are complaining that they should have just made a anime for the main series. the main series however has no real story and coming up with an original story would have presented alot of problems. i enjoy this series as it is very light hearted which is what monster hunter has always been. its never been a dark ...

    Very Good! Very Good for Kids! But Not What I Was Expecting...
    It's not exactly what I was expecting, but it's still pretty neat-o to me! I was expecting something along the lines of a story mode or offline mode to be animated, but this is alright, too!

    Actually, I kinda hate the cat. And the CGI monsters need to be more...lifelike? Sometimes they stand absolutely still. Or they suddenly change positions and activities the moment the camera angle changes. ...

    Its not a bad idea...
    I don't understand why people dislike this because its not blood everywhere killing everything that moves like main series games, this game has the potential to get another generation of monster hunter fans once the game comes out this fall give it a chance.

    Monster Hunter Ride On is basically a MEH
    Quite frankly nothing really stands out, and far more negatives than positive.

    Story is a meh. Because it's childish doesn't mean it can't have fun story and character. For example Troll Hunter is a fun show because character are all very interesting with great story development, while still being a children's story.

    At times Nivirou or whatever gets extremely annoying, i don't get why ...

    Not as bad as people say
    so I've been watching this show and so far it isn't as bad as people say there is a plot and story within this show that has the kids going out into the world to explore more in later episodes the first few are centered around the kids in the village and their learning of Riding and kinship, also the animation for the monsters isn't really that bad I find it cool how they have CG animations to ...

  • A truly heartwarming tale!
    Not enough can be said on how beautiful this anime is. The characters and their relationships shine through here more than a lot of other animes I have watched. The bond between Lute and Cheval is something truly special, and worth watching the series for that alone.

    The story is absolutely tearjerking in some places, after the first 12 episodes the show really kicks into high gear and you'll ...

  • I like it enough to keep watching
    Over all the show is made for younger viewers and it is fairly predictable to what will happen next. But it's a good show to watch to see a different perspective of the monster hunter series. To be honest I like all the game reference made in the show. I think what throws me off most of the show is the name since I think of monster hunter as... Well... Monster HUNTER. But at least I know what the ...

  • Wasn't Made For Adults.
    As someone new to the Monster Hunter series I started watching this not knowing anything about it well it's clear that this anime is for the 8 to 12 age group but it did interest me enough to watch all the episodes up to this review (28) . First off the bad for me was the cat companion of the main character it was annoying and useless and this anime would have been better off and gotten a four ...

  • Alright, just alright.
    I'm a huge MH fan and I'm hoping to get into stories for when it releases in the west, so I started watching this.
    Three episodes in, I'm enjoying it, but not that much.
    The monster animation isn't too bad. With some, it looks fake as hell (*cough* Azurous), but with others, it works. I like the story and most of the characters. I really like the concept of riders and how it is ...
