David Production helms TV anime adaptation that will air on Fuji TV in October of 2016
Voice actress Minami Takahashi is joining the ranks of the monster-taming heroes of Monster Hunter Stories: RIDE ON, an upcoming TV anime adaptation based on the popular series of Monster Hunter video games.
Takahashi will provide the voice for Riria, the childhood friend of Ryuto, the show's main character. Riria is described as having a bright personality and a strong sense of responsibility. She longs to experience the world outside of her village, and she feels a strong desire to observe various new things.
Monster Hunter Stories: RIDE ON is directed by Mitsuru Hongo (World Trigger) and features animation from David Production (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure). The story involves a village where "riders" tame and ride monsters rather than slaying them. Ryuto, a boy from this village, will embark on adventure with his companions that will take them beyond the boundaries of their home.
Monster Hunter Stories: RIDE ON will debut on Fuji TV in October of 2016.
