Monster Hunter Episode (モンスターハンターエピソード) is an official series of novels and mangas about the Monster Hunter series. The author is Ryuta Fuse (布施龍太). There are currently five Novels and three Manga Volumes.
The series tells short stories of different Hunters, whether random groups or solo hunters. Not all of the stories end with a good ending.
Differences from Monster Hunter Orage
Unlike Monster Hunter Orage, Episode more closely follows the MH series of games locations (from the locations itself to its specific Areas in-game). It also only uses the original monsters that have appeared from the games, although Equipment and Monsters that have appeared from the first generation up to the third generation are all combined into this series.
