Quotes from Monster Hunter Stories: Ride On (TV, 2016)
Reverto: I was sure my time was up. After a while, I heard the whistle of the wind, the roar of water. The wind was my own breath, and the water my blood flowing. I was alive. When I finally sat up, the defeated beast lay sprawled beside me. For a second, I was confused: Was I the monster, or was the monster me? That's how much I had become one with the monster's movements. At that moment, I was part of nature, part of that forest. One more beast, no different from the monster. "Be the forest, be the beast": I felt like I'd begun to understand what those words meant. Neither monsters, nor Hunters. We become the forest, become the beast, and as Hunters, become one with the monsters and live our lives with their blessing.
Vlau: When you pick a flower like this, you might feel bad for it, but these flowers give us such a great kindness. They warm our hearts. And this way, the flowers live on within the heart they've warmed.
