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.”

Hestia, Lili and Haruhime waste no time trying to win Bell over with their charms and run into unexpected competition once Ais crashes the party.

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.

HIDIVE WILL BROADCAST “MEGALOBOX” IN LATIN AMERICA

HOUSTON, TX - 02/17/2020 - HIDIVE announced today that it acquired the rights to broadcast the sports anime and explosive science fiction MEGALOBOX, from TMS Entertainment (Baki, Dr. STONE, D.Gray-man), to broadcast it in America Latin The series will join the HIDIVE programs and will begin on February 24, 2020, 4:30 p.m. UTC. MEGALOBOX will be available in Japanese with Spanish and Portuguese subtitles.

Known only for his fighting nickname, “JNK.DOG” makes a living in illegal and fraudulent fighting by Megalobox, a sport that combines boxing with powerful mechanical exoskeletons, often deadly. 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.

HIDIVE FEELS THE SPIRIT OF “WE RENT TSUKUMOGAMI”

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.

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!”

After a terrible argument with his father, Ikuto makes a hasty, fateful decision to run away from home. Going from runaway to stowaway, Ikuto’s luck lands him on a ship heading right into the path of a huge storm! When it rains, it pours — or in Ikuto’s case, it pours so badly that he washes overboard and wakes up on a deserted island. Well, an almost deserted island. The island is populated by nothing but beautiful girls, all of whom want Ikuto to choose them as his bride. It’s a knock-down, drag-out fight for Ikuto’s heart in the tropical paradise, Nagasarete Airantou!

Nagasarete Airantou is directed by Hideki Okamoto (Mysteria Friends, Battle Girls: Time Paradox) with scriptwriting and series composition from Mamiko Ikeda (Princess Tutu, Fruits Basket).

MADE IN ABYSS: Journey’s Dawn
The enigmatic Abyss is an unforgiving and deadly place. Despite the dangers, it still captures the imagination of explorers such as Riko who wishes to follow in her mother’s footsteps and trains hard to become a Cave Raider. One day, she receives news that her mother died in the Abyss, yet a mysterious note tells Riko that her mother may still be alive. Vowing to uncover the truth about her mother’s fate, Riko embarks on a journey with a humanoid robot boy named Reg. Together they will discover if they have what it takes to survive where so many others have perished.

MADE IN ABYSS: Wandering Twilight
MADE IN ABYSS: Wandering Twilight follows Riko and Reg on their adventure through the Abyss, picking up directly after the events of MADE IN ABYSS: Journey’s Dawn. The mystery surrounding her mother’s death deepens as Riko learns more about the truth of her origins. More determined than ever to travel to the bottom of the Abyss, Riko and Reg leave Ozen’s Seeker Camp and delve into the treacherous Third Layer — and beyond.

HIDIVE Snags Indy Experimental Horror Feature “Aragne: Sign of Vermillion”

HOUSTON, TX — March 13, 2020 — HIDIVE announced today that it has acquired streaming rights to independently produced, experimental horror anime Aragne: Sign of Vermillion for audiences in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Latin America and Scandinavian countries. The film will begin streaming on HIDIVE Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at 17:00 UTC.

Rin’s new apartment building is a far cry from the sunny, idyllic photos from the rental brochure. And instead of offering sanctuary from a dangerous world outside, it oozes decay and dread. Residents exhibit unsettling, peculiar qualities and grotesque eruptions. Sinister forces seem to lie around every corner, and if Rin wants to survive, she will have to discover the terrifying truth — one she has kept buried within…

Aragne: Sign of Vermillion is written, directed and produced entirely by Saku Sakamoto (3D digital effects, GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: Innocence) after a successful Kickstarter-based crowdfunding campaign. Aragne: Sign of Vermillion stars Kana Hanazawa (Akame ga Kill!) as Rin, Yousuke Itou (Shirokuma Cafe) as Tokiyo, Fukujuro Katayama (Ping Pong the Animation) as Saion and Shogo Batori (Restaurant to Another World) as Mikaya.

THE “TO LOVE RU” DUB MAKES ITS STREAMING DEBUT ON HIDIVE!

And Sentai said, “Let there be dubs,” and there were dubs. Now cultured fans in the United States and Canada can watch the To Love Ru dub of season 1 every Friday starting March 27, 2020 at 16:30 UTC!

“Rito Yuki is unlucky when it comes to love — no matter how hard he tries to confess to his crush, his efforts end in failure. After another day’s confession goes down the drain, Rito spends his night sulking in his bathtub. But when a naked girl with a pointed tail teleports into the tub with him, it seems like Rito’s luck is finally looking up! His fortune doesn’t last long when he finds himself accidentally engaged to the buxom beauty who is none other than the princess of the planet Deviluke!”

“CINDERELLA NINE” HITS A GRAND SLAM ON HIDIVE

Wondering where to watch Cinderella Nine (Hachigatsu no Cinderella Nine)? Wonder no more! Tune in on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at 17:00 UTC as HIDIVE streams ALL 12 episodes with English, Portuguese and Spanish subtitles!

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

“Tsubasa loves baseball so much, she started her high school’s baseball club herself! But passion alone won’t keep a club alive, so it’s up to her to recruit as many all-star players as she can. Some potential recruits have never played before while others have returned to the game thanks to Tsubasa, and together they’ll form a team united in love for the game and their growing friendship. But whether they win or lose, one thing’s for sure: Every game they play together is sure to be a home run!”
