Manga Review: Monster Hunter – Flash Hunter Vol. 1



It is an age when monsters rule the world, soaring through the sky, treading the earth and filling the seas. Humanity survives on the fringes, relying on a special kind of hero to defend the people from danger—the Monster Hunters!

Hunting giant man-eating beasts is no job for the weak-hearted, but along with courage, it takes skill and experience to be a good Hunter. It also takes good teamwork. Raiga and his comrades are experts now, but when they started down the path of the Monster Hunter, they lacked these qualities. When they head off to confront the dragon-like Queropeco, they quickly learn that this flaw could cost them dearly…

So not a bad manga story, my only complaint is that it was a bit hard for me to follow what was current time and what was a flashback. The monster lore and fights are good and full of action and the concept is great. I just feel it has more potential and I hope to see it progress though its next few volumes. The characters shown have very well defined personalities and seem to conflict with each other as one would expect. Only time will be able to show whether they will be able to work together and it will be interesting to see how they each develop.
