This week, we’re celebrating International Women’s Day 2020, which as you should know is “a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women!”
We didn’t have to look far to find some remarkable women in anime who deserve their moment in the spotlight. Join us as we take a stroll through our gallery of programs to celebrate some of the coolest ladies around!
As always, SPOILERS AHEAD!
Nah I’m good.

If you’ve never heard of White Day before, you can think of it as a reverse Valentine’s Day. In some Eastern cultures, Valentine’s Day has become the day when women give men gifts (as opposed to here in the West where anyone can give a gift to anyone).
White Day popped up in response to that trend, and now March 14 is the day when men thank the women who gave them a gift on Valentine’s Day by giving them one in return. But unlike other major holidays like Christmas, which have entire episodes or even story arcs devoted to them, anime uses White Day as a plot device more than anything else.
Oh sure, if you’re watching a romance anime, odds are that White Day will come up at some point, but rarely will it cover the entire episode. The more we watch anime, the more we realize that series use White Day in a variety of ways.
Does that mean hidive shows are free now?
From the Press Release:
Today, HIDIVE and Anime-Planet announced a partnership that enables Anime-Planet’s more than 5 million monthly users to stream a selection of HIDIVE’s anime catalog directly on Anime-Planet.com.
Thats a yes?
Did they say what shows?
It says a “SELECTION” of their shows, and no I don’t have a list.
Geez calm down. I just wanted to know if I had to have an account there and if I had to pay for it.
I can’t be any calmer. I wasn’t sure you were reading it correctly.
I would imagine that you would need an Anime Planet member, but I would recommend going there and reading their info about it.
I don’t have an account there.
I can help clarify a little.
From my understanding, no you do not need an account to watch programs on their site.
You will need an account to add to your list however.
If a show has the episodes available, then there will be a VIDEOS tab as seen here:
As for your question, I am not certain exactly what shows are available, but the shows on Anime-Planet are sub only with ads:
@MaouSadao thanks for the discripteon. Iguess im better off with VRV anyway.
@Slowhand this is inly on hidive right? Not on vev
I believe that is correct.
