The manga adaption based on the popular {{RPG}} VideoGame/MonsterHunter.

[[ThemeNaming Shiki]] [[TheHero Ryuuhou]] is a Forbidden Hunter who is in search of Miogaruna, the forbidden dragon of light, following the death of his master, Gurelli, several years ago. He is accompanied on this journey by [[{{Tsundere}} Irie]], Gurelli's experienced hunter of a daughter, and [[NiceGirl Sakuya]], the daughter of a famous Equipment Technician. Not far behind is [[RivalTurnedEvil Kuron]], a powerful hunter who has his eyes set on Irie and decides to become a Forbidden Hunter in order to destroy Shiki for taking Irie away.

Mangaka: Hiro Mashima, who also wrote ''Manga/RaveMaster'', ''Manga/MonsterSoul'' and ''Manga/FairyTail''.

!!This manga provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: Irie and Sakuya.
* BlowYouAway: One reason Gurelli takes Shiki under his wing is because of his ablity to see wind patterns, which he observed when [[spoiler:Shiki literally rides the wind up to a monster just to tell it that he will kill it.]]
* BrokenBird: Irie [[spoiler: A backstory reveals she initially was in a party before. But they had used her for their illegel dealings in weaponry, then had the gall to blame her when they were caught (as the police force had let her go due to being found she wasn't intentionally involved). What's more thanks to this incident, she was barred from getting a Hunter's License.]]
* BoyMeetsGirl: More like Boy Meets Girl Who Tells Boy To Get Off Of Her Seat.
* CallingYourAttacks
* CelibateHero: From the looks of it, Irie.
* ChasteHero: Shiki.
* CurbstompBattle: EVERY. SINGLE. BATTLE.
* {{Expy}}: Shiki looks like [[Manga/FairyTail Gray]], but acts like [[Manga/FairyTail Natsu]].
** Irie looks like a tomboyish [[Manga/FairyTail Lucy]], and Kuron looks like [[Manga/RaveMaster Seig Hart]] or an older [[Manga/FairyTail Leon]].
* FanService
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Shiki - '''[[color:maroon:sanguine]]''', [[spoiler:Kuron]] - '''[[color:orange:choleric]]''', Sakuya - '''[[color:black:melancholic]]''', Irie - '''[[color:green:phlegmatic]]'''.
* HopelessSuitor: Kuron for Irie.
* GirlishPigtails: Irie. The ribbons quite possibly double as [[UnusualEars nekomimi]], at least, according to Shiki.
* GratuitousFrench: ''"Orage"'' is French for "storm".
* IWorkAlone: Irie initially. See ''Broken Bird''
* LoveTriangle: Kuron think he has this with Shiki and Irie. He couldn't be more wrong.
* MeaningfulName: Like all of Mashima's heroes who are named after a season, Shiki is no exception - his name means "four seasons."
* ParentalAbandonment: Shiki is an orphan, Irie lost her father, and Sakuya's father went missing [[spoiler: (They find his body later though)]] and her mother died.
* ThePowerOfFriendship
* PowerTrio: Shiki (Id), Irie (Ego), and Sakuya (Superego).
* TheRival: Kuron sees Shiki as a love rival for Irie, though it is both a one-sided rivalry ''and'' a one-sided love.
* RivalsTeamUp:[[spoiler: Kuron joins Shiki, Irie, and Sakuya in defeating the Girkuza. He seems to only team up with Shiki simply for Irie's sake when she tells him to believe in Shiki because he's her {{True Companion|s}}. Though by the end of the series he seems to have loosened up and joined their party full time.]]
* ShipTease: [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend Shiki/Irie]], [[DoggedNiceGuy Kuron/Irie]], [[BirdsOfAFeather Shiki/Sakuya]]... Even [[PairTheSpares Kuron/Sakuya]]. Yeah, pretty much any time anybody gets screen time with someone else. It's probably because there is no OfficialCouple in the series.
* {{Shounen}}
* ShrinkingViolet: Sakuya.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Kuron or Kowloon?
* SequelHook: At the end they are seen going off on a quest with new armor and their weapons upgraded.
* TrueCompanions
* {{Tsundere}}: Irie.
