4TH SEASON OF “MARIA WATCHES OVER US” TO STREAM ON HIDIVE

All good things must come to an end, and, alas, that includes Maria Watches Over Us (Maria sama ga Miteru). Join us on Wednesday, October 14, 2019, at 17:00 UTC and enjoy ALL 13 subbed episodes of the 4th and final season.

Our soeurs over at Maiden Japan have this to say about the series:

“Life for the young women at Lillian Girls’ Academy couldn’t be more exciting! The Yamayuri Council is working on a theater production with the all-boys Hanadera Academy, and the school festival is quickly approaching. But Yumi’s duties pale in comparison to the task assigned to her by Sachiko: choosing someone as a petite soeur! Will she be able to handle the pressure of such a monumental decision, or will Yumi crumble under the weight of the Council’s — and Sachiko’s — expectations?”

Latest Installment of Hit Series “Sword Art Online” Ventures into HIDIVE

HOUSTON, TX, October 10, 2019 – HIDIVE announced today that it acquired streaming rights to sci-fi anime Sword Art Online Alicization War of Underworld, the exciting follow-up to Sword Art Online Alicization, for audiences in North America. Fans can watch the HIDIVE premiere on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at 16:30 UTC and catch new episodes on subsequent Saturdays.

The battle with the Administrator has been won, but the fight isn’t over yet. Kirito remains unresponsive, shattered by the loss of his arm, his soul and his dear friend Eugeo. Alice has lost her drive to fight, putting her knighthood aside in order to care for Kirito. But the forces of darkness will not wait for the pair to recover before invading the Underworld, and unless Kirito and Alice can rally and recover, the world will experience destruction of unimaginable scale…

Produced by A-1 Pictures (GATE, From the New World), the series is directed by Manabu Ono (Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, The Irregular at Magic High School, A-Channel) and stars Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girl in a Dungeon?, No Game, No Life, Food Wars!) as Kirito, Haruka Tomatsu (Waiting in the Summer, Wasteful Days of High School Girls, Psychic Squad) as Asuna and Ai Kayano (Girls und Panzer, Golden Time, ReLIFE) as Alice. Haruka Tomatsu also performs the series’ opening theme song, “Resolution.” Additionally, fans will be able to catch up on the first season of Sword Art Online Alicization when the series arrives on HIDIVE in the coming months.

My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU

“When the loner Hachiman Hikigaya is coerced into joining the “Services Club” run by the smart, attractive, and stuck up Yukino Yukinoshita, it’s a recipe for disaster! But we haven’t yet added the third caustic ingredient! Bright and cheery Yui Yuigahama needs the Service Club’s help to bake cookies. It could be a recipe for romance. It could just as easily end in a nuclear meltdown! Get ready for romantic comedy gone totally wrong as the barrage à trois of the Service Club is unleashed!”

My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!

“A new season brings a whole new set of challenges for Yukino, Yui and Hachiman. As the Service Club steps back into high gear, the club returns to their mission of helping the student body with their problems. Except they’ve got their own issues. What exactly awaits the three friends this coming year? Find out in My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!”

Our fellow time travelers over at Maiden Japan have this to say about the series:

“Sometimes when you meet someone, you just know they’re going to be interesting, but when 13-year-old Yasaka Hajime meets an older girl while staying at his grandfather’s house for summer vacation, he has no idea how much she’s about to change his life! To begin with, while Arashi may only look a few years older than Yasaka, she’s actually closer in age to his granddad! How is that possible? It seems that Arashi’s not exactly human anymore, and besides being a ghost from 1945, she has an important mission that revolves around her ability to travel in time! Since Arashi can only travel temporally if she’s accompanied by a living being from her current present, guess who’s about to become her partner in paradoxity? It’s time for everything to go a little crazy in NATSU NO ARASHI!”

HIDIVE PLAYS DEVILISH “DARWIN’S GAME”

HOUSTON, TX – December 24, 2019 – HIDIVE announced today that it acquired streaming rights to battle royale anime Darwin’s Game, produced by studio Nexus (Chivalry of a Failed Knight), for audiences in the United States and Canada. The series streams on HIDIVE beginning Sunday, February 2, 2020 at 17:00 UTC with new episodes following on Sundays at the same time.

When Kaname Sudo accepts his best friend’s invitation to play a mysterious mobile game, he never suspects he’ll be lured into “Darwin’s Game,” a fiendish battle royale where killing your opponent puts blood on your hands and cold, hard cash in your bank account. Can Kaname escape this insane scenario, or will he be an unwilling participant of the game forever more?

Yoshinobu Tokumoto (episode director WataMote: No Matter How I Look At It, It’s You Guys’ Fault I’m Not Popular!) will direct the series, which stars Yusuke Kobayashi (GATE) as Kaname Sudo and Reina Ueda (Land of the Lustrous) as Shuka Karino. Kenichiro Suehiro (Girls’ Last Tour) provides the series’ music.
