Based on Daisuke Ashihara’s shonen sci-fi battle manga about extra-dimensional monsters called Neighbors and the humans who fight them with Triggers, the series has been serialized since 2013 in Weekly Shonen Jump and now in Jump Square

In a series this big, there are dozens and dozens of unique characters, some of which only appear in the manga, and most of which have Japanese, English, and several other voice actors. All three seasons have yet to be localized, however. 

Main characters

Narrowing things down a bit is the main cast of protagonists, agents of Border that fight the Neighbors — and Yūma’s cute orb of a guardian, Replica. The English cast for the main characters include:

  • Yūma Kuga, voiced by Cathy Weseluck (Near in Death Note)
  • Osamu Mikumo, voiced by Brian Doe
  • Chika Amatori, voiced by Caitlyn Bairstow (Suna in Mega Man: Fully Charged)
  • Yūichi Jin, voiced by Andrew Francis (Chiaki Mamiya in The Girl Who Leapt Through Time)
  • Replica, voiced by Marco Soriano

Just some of the other major characters (and their English voice actor, if cast) include:
