Based on Capcom’s hit franchise, Monster Hunter, an exciting new anime comes from the creative minds behind Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. In a world where people and monsters are at odds, some learn to coexist. Known as Riders, they awaken the powers of monsters and live alongside them in secrecy. Now, one young boy journeys to find his own companion and become the world’s greatest Rider.


Mitsuru Hongo (World Trigger) directs Monster Hunter Stories: Ride On at anime studio David Production (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure). Here's some info on the cast from one of our previous posts:


Some of the cast members and their characters include (from left to right):


  • Ayaka Asai as Miru. Miru is the same age as Ryuto, and also wants to become a rider. She's a hard worker but she has difficulty expressing her true feelings. She aims to be like Lilia, but is also envious of her.
  • Michiyo Murase as Hyoro. Hyoro is a timid boy about the same age as Ryuto, and he also wants to become a rider. Hyoro wishes to live up to the high expectations of his elder brother, Jeanie, but he has a bit of an inferiority complex.
  • Yuma Uchida as Jeanie. Jeanie is one year older than Ryuto, and is already an accomplished rider. Jeanie wants his younger brother, Hyoro, to be a successful rider, too. Although Jeanie loves his brother, he also is very strict with Hyoro to further this goal.
  • Itaru Yamamoto as Stone. Stone is a rider that is the same age as Jeanie. He doesn't talk very much, so his words carry great weight. Stone values his friends more than anything.
  • And Takanori Ōyama as Noel. Noel is a rider that is one year older than Jeanie. Noel gets along well with Dan. Quiet and reserved, Noel nonetheless has a strong sense of civic duty and he wishes to protect Hakumu Village.


Together these five make up the Hakumu Village Crew.


Additional cast includes: 


Yui Makino as Ayuria, a lady rider who was born and raised in a different village from Ryuto.



Ryōta Ōsaka as Schuval, one of Ryuto's childhood friends. Schuval has a kind-hearted personality, and he wants to make his mother proud by becoming a skilled rider.



Tetsuo Gotō as Village Headman Omuna, the chief of Hakumu Village, where Ryuto lives. Omuna watches over everyone in the village, and much beloved by the people.
