Monster Hunter Stories: Ride On has not yet premiered in Japan, but Funimation has revealed that they will be bringing the anime to the West. Announced at their Otakon panel, the company will be releasing the anime on their streaming service FunimationNow this October.
The 48 episode series will follow a group of monster riders. Unlike the hunters in the game series, these characters will be attempting to bond and co-exist with the creatures. It is the first anime based on Capcom’s popular action RPG and seems to be specifically influenced by the upcoming 3DS game Monster Hunter Stories.
