FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HIDIVE Beta Acquires Streaming Rights to ‘Chivalry of a Failed Knight’ English Dub

HOUSTON, TX, JUNE 21, 2017 – HIDIVE LLC has acquired the streaming rights to the English dub of Chivalry of a Failed Knight, produced by Sentai Filmworks!

Premium HIDIVE members will be able to stream new episodes of Chivalry of a Failed Knight every Monday at 12:00 PM CT exclusively on HIDIVE’s anime streaming service beta. Currently, premium HIDIVE members can immediately stream the first four episodes of the series on HIDIVE.com.

Sentai Filmworks describes the series:

“Ikki Kurogane may have come from a long line of Blazers, people with the ability to create weapons or devices manifested from their souls, but as far as the Hagun Academy is concerned, he’s been a major disappointment in the magical powers department. He is so disappointing, in fact, that he’s earned the unfortunate nickname of the “Worst One”. However, things change for Ikki in the most surprising way when Princess Stella Vermillion, the most promising Rank-A Blazer to come along in many years, decides to transfer to Hagun. When she challenges him to a duel where the loser must obey the winner for the rest of their life, the last thing anyone expects is that the Worst One might prove to be a match for the Crimson Princess… and the unforeseen consequences will push the boundaries of society itself in CHIVALRY OF A FAILED KNIGHT!”
