THE “HAIKYU!! 3RD SEASON” DUB PLAYS ON HIDIVE THIS BLACK FRIDAY

Are you ready for a volleyball match so monumental, it takes place over an entire season? Mark your calendars for Friday, November 29, 2019, at 17:00 UTC, sports fans, because that’s when Karasuno’s epic match against Shiratorizawa begins in the Haikyu!! 3rd Season dub!

Our fellow Haikyu!! fans over at Sentai Filmworks have this to say about the series:

“With their match against Aoba Johsai behind them, Karasuno prepares to challenge their toughest opponent yet: the undefeated powerhouse, Shiratorizawa. Boasting Wakatoshi Ushijima, one of the top three aces in the entirety of Japan, as captain, this team’s intense force may be too much for even the new Karasuno to overcome. The crows take flight once again as Hinata, Kageyama, and the team fight toward Nationals!”

ENGLISH DUB OF "IS IT WRONG TO TRY TO PICK UP GIRLS IN A DUNGEON?: ARROW OF THE ORION” AIMS STRAIGHT FOR HIDIVE

Did you miss out on seeing the DanMachi movie in theaters last year? No problem; we believe in second chances. Spread the word and get that popcorn ready, because both the dub AND the sub for Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion starts streaming on HIDIVE on Friday, January 24, 2019, at 18:00 UTC!

Can’t wait until then? We don’t blame you. How about passing the time by streaming the first and second season, the OVA and Sword Oratoria after checking out our Quick and Easy DanMachi Viewing Guide? That’s the ENTIRE anime franchise all in one convenient place!

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

“Far from the dungeon beneath Orario rises a new threat, one the beautiful goddess Artemis has sworn to destroy with the help of her chosen warrior. But this fighter isn’t the renowned Ais Wallenstein or another storied hero of Orario legend. Instead, the fate of Artemis’ quest falls upon the shoulders of Bell Cranel, who must partner with the goddess and stand against the menace lurking in the remains of a distant, ancient city. Although Bell is the ordained champion of Artemis and a member of the goddess Hestia’s Familia, their adventure will test every skill and take every ounce of courage that Bell has — and perhaps, along the way, turn him into the hero he has always aspired to be.”

HIDIVE NABS “LUPIN THE 3RD PART 5”

HOUSTON, TX — February 13, 2020 — HIDIVE announced today that it acquired streaming rights to Lupin the 3rd Part 5 for audiences in the United States, Canada and Latin America. The series premieres on HIDIVE on Thursday, February 20, 2020 at 16:30 UTC.

A legendary thief deserves a legendary heist, and Lupin has set his sights on his biggest bounty yet: Marco Polo, a dark-web marketplace where drug dealers proliferate and there’s money for the taking. But just as Lupin swipes his latest fortune and tries to make off with the goods, his hideout is inexplicably surrounded by Zenigata and his forces thanks to a new game that’s gone viral on social media. It has a very specific, very unfortunate objective, and the name of the game is “Arrest Lupin III”!

Produced by TMS Entertainment (Dr. STONE), Lupin the 3rd Part 5 is directed by Yuichiro Yano (Moyasimon, Tales of Agriculture) with series composition by Ichiro Okouchi (Princess Principal). Go Zappa (Ahiru no Sora) produced the script. Seiyuus Kanichi Kurita (Lupin the 3rd) and Kiyoshi Kobayashi (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure) return to voice Lupin III and Daisuke Jigen, respectively. They are joined by Inori Minase (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?) as Ami Enan, Miyuki Sawashiro (High School of the Dead) as Fujiko Mine, Daisuke Namikawa (Gatchaman Crowds) as Goemon Ishikawa and Kouichi Yamadera (Cowboy Bebop) as Inspector Zenigata.

Despite the lethality of the sport, he is bored of his luck in life until he almost runs over the current Megalobox champion, Yuri. Yuri easily defeats JNK.DOG in a fight, but challenges JNK.DOG to face him again in Megalonia, the official (and of course legal) league of Megalobox. Passion is revived and JNK.DOG, renamed “Joe,” must face opponents he had never seen before while climbing from the bottom to the top.

Created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the classic manga Ashita no Joe , MEGALOBOX is directed by Yo Moriyama (animation director of Master Keaton, Oh! Edo Rocket ) with musical composition of hip hop artist Mabanua. The protagonists of the series are Yoshimasa Hosoya ( Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? , Akame ga Kill! ) In the role of Joe and Hiroki Yasumoto ( GATE , Hozuki’s Coolheadedness ) as Yuri.

HOUSTON, TX — February 17, 2020 — HIDIVE announced today that it has acquired streaming rights to We Rent Tsukumogami, from TMS Entertainment (Baki, Dr. STONE, D.Gray-man), for audiences in the United States, Canada and Latin American countries. The supernatural comedy series streams to HIDIVE subscribers beginning Monday, February 24, 2020 at 17:30 UTC.

In a place and time where disasters are commonplace, Oko and Seiji cater to local customers at Izumoya, their renowned rental shop for everyday items. Mixed with Izumoya’s regular inventory are tsukumogami, ancient spirits disguised as ordinary objects. Unlike most people, Oko and Seiji can see and listen to the spirits, and Izumoya becomes a hub of paranormal activity as numerous tsukumogami end up in the shop. And when Oko and Seiji spread the supernatural love by lending their “special” tsukumogami to unwitting customers, things get really interesting!

Produced by studio Telecom Animation Film (Orange, All Out!!, Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas), We Rent Tsukumogami is directed by Masahiko Murata (Serial Experiments Lain, Baby Steps, Corpse Princess: Kuro). The series stars Junya Enoki (Outburst Dreamer Boys, Beautiful Bones -Sakurako’s Investigation-, My Love Story!!) as Seiji and Mikako Komatsu (Land of the Lustrous, Gourmet Girl Graffiti, The “Hentai” Prince and the Stony Cat) as Oko.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TRY OUT THE “TRY KNIGHTS” SUB ON HIDIVE

Mark your calendars, sports fans! Because the sub for Try Knights takes the field on Friday, February 28, 2020 at 18:00 UTC!

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

“Riku Haruma used to love rugby — but when he grew up to be short and slender, he put his rugby ambitions aside in favor of his studies. Dreams have a way of resurfacing where you least expect them, however, and when he sees Akira Kariya on the rugby field, the sight of him running, jumping and giving the sport his all reignites a passion in Riku’s heart that’s long been dormant. His newfound passion drives him back onto the field and straight toward his dream of the Rugby World Cup, where he’ll use tactics and the power of his mind to outmaneuver his opponents and rise straight to the top of the pack!”
