Guessing this is to address the tv-MA content missing on iOS .

Some wording concerns me. It says TV-MA or R or higher. If my knowledge is correct, the only ratings higher would be NC-17 or X! :dizzy_face:

It’s most likely just for legal reasons but still something to point out.

SPACE RUNAWAY IDEON MOVIES TO LAUNCH ON HIDIVE

Pop that popcorn and tune in on March 25, 2019, at 18:00 UTC, everyone! That’s when the epic science-fiction saga reaches its conclusion in two action-packed movies: Space Runaway Ideon: Contact and Space Runaway Ideon: Be Invoked !

Our fellow sci-fi geeks over at Maiden Japan have this to say about the two movies:

Space Runaway Ideon: Contact

“In the year 2300, mankind has begun colonizing planets around the Andromeda Galaxy. While doing so, they come to discover the mysterious remains of the Ideon, a godlike mecha. During the restoration process, the Ideon is unable to be activated until a humanoid alien race comes to the planet. When Cosmo Yuki climbs aboard, the Ideon activates suddenly and fends off the attack. Will Yuki be able to save the universe or will it meet its doom?”

Space Runaway Ideon: Be Invoked

“The conflict between the crew of the Solo Ship and the Buff Clan reaches a horrific climax as the situation rapidly deteriorates. As things go from bad to worse, the Buff Clan contemplates deploying the fearsome Gando Rowa. Was peace always an unachievable dream of naive idealists? Are these two factions forever destined to battle in an unending cycle of hatred?”

MORE POP TEAM EPIC FOR HIDIVE? HECK YES!

Now, we know that it sounds weird and sketchy that there’s new episodes of Pop Team Epic premiering on April Fools’ but what is this series if not weird?

Tune in on Monday, April 1st at 14:30 UTC to catch the first of two BRAND NEW Pop Team Epic episodes!

We memelords at HIDIVE have this to say about the specials:

“There’s no such thing as too much Pop Team Epic. You all demanded more, and now Popuko and Pipimi will continue their memeable antics in two explosive specials that only Pop Team Epic can deliver! This two-episode continuation is a welcomed addition to an already legendary season that threw the rulebook out the window and fearlessly did its own thing.”

And remember: don’t believe everything you read on the internet on April Fools’ Day. Except for this announcement. We’d never lie about something as important as new Pop Team Epic episodes. There are some things you just don’t joke about.

AO-CHAN CAN’T STUDY! NOW ON HIDIVE

Tune in on Friday, April 5th at 18:25 UTC for the premiere of Ao-chan Can’t Study! and every Friday after that to see Ao’s valiant attempts to not think n a u g h t y thoughts about her handsome classmate who confessed his feelings to her!

Our friends who claim they aren’t lovers of lewd (but are totally lying) at Sentai Filmworks have this to say about the series:

“Ao Horie’s father, a popular erotic fiction author, chose Ao’s name because A stands for “apple” and O stands for “orgy”! Desperate to escape her father’s legacy and get into a prestigious university, Ao devotes herself to studying instead of pursuing romance. She has no time for boys, but there’s just one problem: Kijima, her handsome and popular classmate, just confessed his love to her! And to make matters worse, she can’t stop thinking dirty thoughts about him! Looks like escaping her father’s influence will be harder than she thought…”

SENRYU GIRL IS POETIC ON HIDIVE

tune in this season

for poetic anime

with Senryu Girl

But enough with our bad haikus! Yukishiro can do a lot better. Don’t believe us? Tune in on Friday, April 5th, 2019 at 18:10 UTC and every Friday after that to see for yourselves!

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

“At first glance Yukishiro Nanako seems like a normal high school girl, but she has a notable eccentricity: instead of speaking, she communicates only through written senryu poetry! This means she expresses herself only in 5-7-5 syllables. To most this might seem like an inconvenience, but for Nanako and her ex-delinquent bestie, Busujima Eiji, it adds to the experience of their high school lives as they run the Literature Club.”

HIDIVE HAS A QUESTION: WHY THE HELL ARE YOU HERE, TEACHER!?

We thought our high school braces and haircuts were pretty bad, but it turns out we had it easy. How the hell is Ichiro Sato gonna handle his awkward high school life, we ask you!?

Tune in on Sunday, April 7th at 16:50 UTC and every Sunday after that to watch W hy the Hell are You Here, Teacher!? and find out.

Our friends over at Sentai Filmworks have this to say about the series:

“Ichiro Sato is about as average as a student can get… except for his above-average ability to land himself in totally awkward, intensely risqué situations with his no-nonsense teacher, Kana Kojima! Ichiro has his hands full dealing with these steamy shenanigans and unexpected encounters in the most unlikely places. At least it can’t get any worse, right?”

Introducing the HIDIVE Ultimate Master COMPLETE Collection on VHS!

April 1, 2019 9:52 AM

Ever on the cutting edge of anime innovation, HIDIVE will now take a bold step into the future with its latest product announcement, which bridges the gap between past and present by compressing every last one of HIDIVE’s awesome shows onto one handy VHS tape! View anime the way it was meant to be seen by lugging your VHS player out of your grandma’s basement and watching your favorite shows in stunning 4:3 aspect ratio. Sure, you’ll have to fast-forward through, like, two hundred hours of footage to see the show you like the best, but that’s a small price to pay for this much compressed awesome, right?

Dying to add this to your video library? Well, APRIL FOOLS! What, like you’re even surprised?! You should’ve guessed that we don’t actually have the VHS-packing technology to accomplish this feat of video engineering.

Legit sad that you can’t add this tape to your retro movie collection? Boy, do we have good news for you! Our tape’s value is very real since you can stream the ENTIRE HIDIVE CATALOGUE straight to your TV or mobile device for only $4.99 USD a month (and it’s even cheaper when you subscribe annually). That’s way better than having to be kind and rewind several hundred hours of VHS tape; trust us.

NAMUAMIDABUTSU! -UTENA- GETS READY TO SAVE THE WORLD ON HIDIVE

Quick show of hands: Who here’s interested in pretty boys? Then you’re in luck! Tune in on Monday, April 8th, 2019 at 12:30 UTC for the premiere of our latest acquisition, NAMUAMIDABUTSU! -UTENA-!

Our fellow Zen practitioners over at Sentai Filmworks have this to say about the series:

“Long before superheroes, there were legends. One of them begins with Shaka Nyorai, whose bravery and enlightenment once saved humanity forever. But forever is fleeting because Mara, the personification of Earthly desires, forges a corrupt coalition with the devil to again visit wrath and vengeance upon humankind. To counter Mara’s cruel attack, Taishakuten and Bonten, divine beings, must join forces with the Thirteen Buddhas. Can the allied powers of light defeat the vicious onslaught and save humankind in their darkest hour?”

Grimm’s Notes is in an awkward position b/c of its time. Watched waaay late or first thing Sat. morning. You never know what you’ll get week to week I guess but the series is almost over anyway. At least the website was working fine so can’t complain.
