LAND OF THE LUSTROUS DUBS SHINE ON HIDIVE

January 18, 2019 10:11 PM

Who are we? What is our purpose in life? Those are questions that we’ve been asking ourselves ever since we first realized we could ask questions. As it turns out, we aren’t the only ones capable wondering what we should do with our lives, which makes us feel a whole lot better about ourselves.

Enter Phos, whose lack of adulting makes them one of the most relatable anime characters of recent memory. You can catch their adventures with the English and Spanish dubs every Wednesday starting January 23, 2019 at 17:00 UTC!

Our fellow gems at Sentai Filmworks have this to say about the series:

No matter what the odds, life will find a way to continue, with young Phos and the other gems as the ultimate proof. Instead of flesh, their bodies are made of living crystal, allowing them to survive in a world too toxic for any human. But their gem bodies also attract a terrible danger: the Lunarians, who hunt the gems and use their shattered forms to fabricate jewelry and ornaments. The gems with the strongest forms defend the others, but Phos is too weak and brittle to fight. Instead, Phos is ordered to compile an encyclopedia; but could that research discover hidden secrets that could help the gems? Join Phos, the toxic Cinnabar, the powerful Bort, the valiant Diamond, and others in a glittering world unlike anything you have seen before: the LAND OF THE LUSTROUS!

GIRLS’ LAST TOUR ENGLISH DUB JOURNEYS TO HIDIVE

Hoard your supplies and gas up your tanks; you’re gonna need them because on January 30th, 2019, we’re premiering the first English dubbed episode of Girls’ Last Tour! Catch it at 17:30 UTC and every Wednesday after that.

Taking a road trip with your bestie has always been a favorite pastime, and in the bleak, post-apocalyptic future, Chito and Yuuri continue this fine, time-honored tradition. Only they’re doing it as a way to scavenge for basic necessities versus singing along to 90’s pop music for hours on end.

So, you know, semantics.

Our traveling companions over at Sentai Filmworks gave us a trailer and describe the series as:

In a future where most of humanity has perished, two young girls named Chito and Yuuri explore the ruins of civilization on their Kettenkrad gun tractor, looking for food and fuel. Despite their bleak existence, the two find meaning in their simple, shared experiences. With Chito behind the wheel and Yuuri handling gun duties, these two set out to salvage what’s left of their post-apocalyptic world.

HIDIVE SPINS THE TALE OF GRIMMS NOTES THE ANIMATION

January 26, 2019 6:20 PM

Make yourselves comfortable in front of your choice of screen every starting February 2, 2019 at 4:30 UTC because we have a tale for all of you. We’re extremely excited to announce that we’ve acquired the streaming rights for “Grimms Notes the Animation”!

There’s something special about fairy tales. Maybe it’s because the stories have followed us throughout our entire lives, whether through books from the Brothers Grimm or through animated movies with singing animals. Regardless, they’re universally loved and have been passed down through the generations.

Our fellow storytellers over at Sentai Filmworks weaved the following narrative regarding the series:

In this mysterious world, everyone possesses a Book of Fate. These enigmatic books chronicle everything that is and will be about a person’s life. However, the sinister Chaos Tellers are rewriting people’s stories to ensure catastrophe. The only ones who can stand against them are a select few who possess blank Books of Fate, granting them the ability to compose their own narratives.

DomeXKano is probably the #1 show for DubCast this season.

Really would like to see Ueno-San get the DubCast treatment as well. Haven’t laughed at a show this hard in a while

HIDIVE CHRONICLES THE SAGA OF THE PRICE OF SMILES

Strap into your mechas HIDIVE viewers, because the Kingdom of Soleil and The Empire need YOU to do your part on February 3, 2019, at 13:00 UTC and every Sunday thereafter! Which side you want to fight for is completely up to you, of course.

When we asked Sentai Filmworks, “What is the Price of Smiles ?”, they launched into a philosophical argument regarding the true nature of happiness and what was needed to sustain it.

We then clarified that we just wanted to know what the show was about, to which they then responded with:

On a world far removed from the Earth, there is a certain kingdom that’s brimming with smiles. Fate thrusts young Princess Yuki, filled with idealism, joy, and innocence, into a station in life for which her most endearing qualities are ill-matched. Her kingdom faces grave danger as the Empire threatens the realm’s security. Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the conflict, an imperial soldier known as Stella Shining hides behind a facade. However, a time may come where her mask cracks, potentially costing her everything. Princess Yuki and Stella’s paths will cross, and the fate of nations will follow.
