Yep, this actually is a Japanese anime series that was snapped up by Funimation and then syndicated on the KIDS-WB (US) television station.

Just don’t look for anything interesting or original here! Hey! What can you expect from a series that named their main character Hunter (or Hunter Steele in Funi-dub) and his spider is named Shadow. He gets to run around with Princess Sparkle and rest of the elite spider warriors.

If you are not in the six to twelve age group, then AVOID this series at all costs!! It is just a canned and very formulaic series that steals and rechurns its episode stories from (oh so) many earlier different series.

Having watched (or wasted time watching) two episodes, I can only share that there is absolutely nothing original or of special interest in this series. It is truly a vapid anime series that is certain to score at least a few points with its target audience.
