While we’ve seen the Persona series get replica eyeglasses before, the Monster Hunter series is now celebrating its 10th anniversary and the upcoming release of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate this October with monster-themed glasses by eyewear makers Alook.


Here’s a look at some of the glasses with their monster motif colors.

    If only they came in prescription…

    • SerChief

      I agree! These glasses look great; if I had a pair of these I’d be the talk of the office!

      • Dascylus

        I’d be torn between Rage Mode Rajang and Silver Rathy

    • Rintarou

      You can most likely take any frame to your eye doctor and they’ll get your lenses made and put in for you. I’ve always ordered frames through my doctors because they usually access an online retailer to order them anyway so they usually have a style I want. Shouldn’t be any different to just bring your own frames in. :P

  • Makoto Yuki

    They look so classy o.o Maybe I should pick up the Narga o.o

  • Virevolte

    Yeah, now I can get hunted and carved in real life too !

  • Bur

    Those Nargacuga glasses. They sing to me.

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

    That Gold Rathian one I want so badly…

  • Shinobikens

    Sometimes I wish I wore glasses

      Augmented reality will give us an excuse.

      Personally, while some glasses are really stylish and pretty. I feel really really lucky that I have such good eyesight and I never want it to end. The same with my hearing. There is so many pretty things that I can look at every day that make me happy to be alive. And I wouldn’t want to lose even the slightest bit of this gift to be able to enjoy such pretty things. The same with hearing, there are so many cute sounds and pretty music and other things like that which make being alive joyous. And the better they are, the better.

      I am really hoping that in my generation we have some really amazing cures for blindness and deafness. So that everyone can enjoy these so amazing and infinitely valuable things forever.

      But, I really really want augmented reality. So I can enjoy my sight and my hearing more. So that I can make the most of them even more and be surrounded by pretty things and amazing sounds that bring me joy and happiness all the time.

      After all, since good eyes and ears and other things are such an amazing gift, I was to use them the best I can all the time. I can’t wait until glasses like these come with augmented reality.

      Oh, I can’t wait for augmented reality!

    • Tarkovsky

      You could always wear one as a fashion accessory. Plenty of people do that in Asia.

  • triablos

    Okay it’d be nice if a mod could help me out with this: when I go to any siliconera article (on my phone), the images take around a minute to load. This is the only site that happens to me. Is this an issue on your side?

  • I got nipples capcom can you milk me. All joking aside. I want those narga glasses.

  • Land of Green Pasture

    the Lucent has some nice color, not as cool as Narga tho…

  • HarakiriKami

    Ill take the Silver Rathalos and Nargacuga.

    Oh and Ill take the rathian as well

  • RedSuisei

    Pretty sure there was something like this last year as well, some even has the same design

  • BizarreJelly

    Where can I order these and god dammit give me them now.

  • Rachel Banzhaf

    I’d like to know the frame width. I wear 140mm and most frames sold online are FAR smaller (120-130mm). I suspect anything out of Japan is going to tend small. Unless they’re sized for men, perhaps.

    I especially like the purple pair. Great color and half-frame on the bottom is almost unheard of!

  • Jonattas F.

    Dat Lucent Nargacuga model

  • CirnoLakes

    I’m not really the largest Monster Hunter fan. Even though it is really really popular in Japan. I feel like I’m supposed to, just because everyone else does. But I guess I’m not super fond of violence, or hunting stuff, that much. I’m more into character interaction and building stuff.

    But those are really stylish. I love stylish glasses, luckily, I still don’t need them because I have really good vision. And hopefully by the time I have vision problems, futuristic technology will keep my eyes amazing. Because there are so many beautiful things to see and I would be so sad if anything made me be able to enjoy them less.

    But I will say one thing I would personally be able to use and enjoy and would love with things like these. Augmented reality glasses! Most augmented reality glasses are amazing and I want them, but I don’t like the way they look so much.

    Augmented reality glasses that look like these would be amazing! And I would buy them and I would love them so much. Even though it would probably be lots of money and I should save money. I really want augmented reality, but the Google Glass augmented reality glasses are still the ones I like the way they look the most.

    But I can’t wait for augmented reality and virtual reality and to become a cyborg. Augmented reality glasses are only going to probably be popular until augmented reality contact lenses and eye implants come out which will be better. But I want it now. And goodness I want those glasses. I could watch anime and play video games and listen to music and read and post things on the internet everywhere.

    Oh my goodness I’m so excited for the future.

    As a glasses wearer since rather early childhood, these are definitely proof of the Oscar Wilde quote that “A fashion is merely a form of ugliness so unbearable that we are compelled to alter it every six months.”

  • Souffrir

    Those Rathian frames aren’t bad. Don’t think I’d wear any of the others, though.

  • AdhesiveBoy

    I’m a fan of MH and all but these aren’t exactly in my taste range.

  • Ren Yuumei

    Might go with Silver Rathalos or Melynx model, hmmmm

  • Armageddon

    I wonder what’s next…tissue paper maybe?
    P.S. I am joking

  • Black Heaven

    Damn, they must have farmed a lot to make those glasses. :P

    If I’ll take a pick… Silver Rathalos I guess. Sophisticated elegance of silver…

  • Kalis Konig

    From the Yian all the way down to the rathalos. I want a pair of each!

  • rubin

    Let me guess – Japan only?
