  • Okay..so I jumped into this anime, unsuspecting...thought it would be cheesy at first when I started watching,but oh did I get more than what I bargained for! XD

    This new anime series is simply a stunning masterpiece. For a first episode, this is everything it should be and a whole lot more...not only do we get a great introduction to the completely original storyline, but we also get to see humour and action...all in one great little package! I hate to admit it, but when I first accidentally turned it to WB that fateful Saturday morning...I thought this was going to be a bit of a cheesy anime, and I was mostly attracted by its artistic style. However, after watchingthis episode I was hooked by all means...Hunter Steele really shines his personality through in this one, though I found (and still find) the Corona character a bit bland. It, in actuallity, was the Invectid captian that really sparked my ineterest, as his short appearance was filled with attitude, and a bit of mystery. He came off as quite the spunky litle character...the action sequences they decided to throw inhere were breathtakingly prettyful, from Hunter and Shadows transformation to the glorious victory. Adventure is taken to the next level in this episode especially, starting with Hunter Steele looking for the mysterious ruins. I found the whole concept of an Inner World to be amazing, and am glad they titled the episode so... Overall, wonderful episode that shouldn't be missed as it reveals a ton of storyplot about where this series is going. After watching this one...well...its hard not to get hooked, and even completely obsessed with this quirky little anime! The first episode, though not my favourite in the series is a must see...by all means check it out!moreless
  • The Inner World eh...

    When 11-year-old Hunter Steele finds the Hiddin Temple he wanders in. When an earthquake starts everything comes crashing down on Hunter. Including a manacle. Suddenly the ground opens up and swallows Hunter. When Hunter wakes up he's in the Inner World. Hunter soon finds a huge spider named Shadow, who starts chasing him. Shadow explains to Hunter how it is said that an earthan (someone from earth) will create havac. Shortly afterwards invectids attack Hunter and Shadow. Working together Hunter and Shadow manage to defeat the invectids. Afterwards they meet a girl, Corona, that Hunter saw in the forest. He claimed she was trying to attack him, but she was really just defeating a bug that was attacking Hunter. Overal this was a very entertaining episode being the first and all, but I felt they could've shown how Hunter got into the Hiddin Temple a little bit better.moreless
  • Hunter Steele is trying to follow his grandpa's journal to try and find the Inner World and he succeed's when a manacle get's attached to his arm.Where he meets his soon-to-be partner Shawdow. But they soon realize they have to team up to defeat an enemy.moreless

    In my opinion this episode rocked. But I felt that they could have showed how Hunter got into the Inner world a little better and made it longer. I found it kind of short, and a bit of a downer. I thought this series wasn\'t going to be any good because the previews threw me off, but boy was I wrong. But I\'m definately watching the rest of the episodes in this series. But what I liked the most was the catchy theme song.moreless
  • So...spider riders...

    This show has an unbelievably original concept. Its funny ( at times ) and is action packed. Its drawn in anime style sort of, but im not sure if thats exactly is classification. i'll just assume it is. Anyways, this episode, i think was a good start, it left me eager to watch the new episodes. Catchy theme song, interesting characters, im sensing much potential in this show. Much potential indeed. Not exactly a cliffhanger, but prettey darned good, i hear its based off of a book series, the shows good enought to make me even want to read those...kind of, well, its a good show, give it a chance. I'm sure you'll fall in love with it eventually.moreless
  • wow i was wrong

    Man i was wrong about this show. The frist time i saw a commercial for it i thought it was going to be lame, but as they say don't judge a book by its cover. This was a great Series Priemeire a kid named Hunter Steele traces his grandfather's footsteps to the inner world where he meets a girl named Corona and a gaint spider named Shadow and learns that he is a spider rider. Spider Riders are people who ride spiders to stop some gaint insects called inverterbers(or something like that) to take over the world.

    They are right now traveling to arachna castle so Hunter Steele can become a great spider rider.moreless
