This will be neat, I remember catching one or two of these episodes a very long time ago and then never seeing it again. Looks like it may be time to set aside some money for this set

It was a great series that while being clearly targeted to kids it had a sense of maturity to it and it tackled mature topics such as life, death and the nature of souls. It was an incredible monster-taming anime no doubt.

This needs to be come a modern game. I think I wrote a post year ago suggesting it would be a perfect fit on the PS Vita. Using the camera on the back, players could take snapshots of QR codes and/or regular product barcodes in order to generate new and interesting monsters.

And the gameplay for the Vita itself should look quite nice on that 5" OLED screen...one can wish :P

monster hunter anime is way better then pokemon. wish they made monster rancher games like the pokemon games. and yes monster rancher was more mature like yughio. pokemon is very kiddy not one ounce of maturity. pokemon is like powerangers mixed with barney the big purple dinosaur lol.
