Wracked by insomnia and wanderlust, Ko Yamori is driven onto the moonlit streets every night in an aimless search of something he can’t seem to name.

VERMEIL IN GOLD GETS AN ENGLISH DUB ON SEPTEMBER 27!

Alto certainly has his hands full this season (of what we can’t say in polite company). What we CAN say, however, is that Vermeil in Gold is getting an English dub every Tuesday starting September 27, 2022 at 12:30 ET (16:30 UTC)!

Synopsis

Rather than take a more sensible approach to salvaging his grades in time for graduation, Alto summons a bit of otherworldly help. Only after does he learn he’s bound the legendary she-devil Vermeil into service as his familiar! But while Vermeil is a powerful ally sure to turn his grades around, only a kiss can replenish her magic, and that makes everything go to hell with Alto’s jealous childhood friend, Lilia.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HIDIVE ENSNARES “THE EMINENCE IN SHADOW” FOR FALL 2022

HOUSTON, TX — SEPTEMBER 13, 2022 — HIDIVE announced today that it acquired exclusive rights to The Eminence in Shadow, the anime adaptation of Daisuke Aizawa’s hilarious isekai light novel series of the same name that has sold over 1.5 million copies since its publication. The series will premiere on HIDIVE this fall.

Some people just aren’t suited to playing the part of the flashy, in-your-face hero or the dastardly, mustache-twirling villain with larger-than-life panache. Instead, they operate in the shadows and pull the strings of society through wit and cleverness. That’s the role Cid wants to play when he’s transported to another world. Cid spins a yarn or three and becomes the unlikely leader of the underground Shadow Garden organization that fights against a menacing cult (which he totally made up). However, there’s a catch even his wild imagination didn’t see coming: the cult he concocted actually exists, and they’re beyond displeased that his power fantasy just got in the way of their evil plans!

The series is produced by studio Nexus (Granbelm, Chivalry of a Failed Knight) with Kazuya Nakanishi (animation director of Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World) serving as series director. Makoto Iino (Suppose a Kid from the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town) handles character design while Kanichi Kato (Black Clover) provides series composition. The light novel is published in English by Yen Press.

The series stars Seiichiro Yamashita (Gatsby Colbert in How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom) as Cid Kagenou/Shadow, Kana Hanazawa (Seiryu Ubiquitous in Akame ga Kill!) as Alexia Midgar, Yoko Hikasa (Farnese in Berserk) as Iris Midgar, Asami Seto (Nobara Kugisaki in Jujutsu Kaisen) as Alpha, Inori Minase (Jeanne in The Case Study of Vanitas) as Beta, Suzuko Mimori (Hikari Kagura in Revue Starlight) as Gamma, Fairouz Ai (Jolyne Kujo in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean) as Delta, Hisako Kanemoto (Hinano Kurahashi in Assassination Classroom) as Epsilon, Ayaka Asai (Lisa Isaribi in Fire Force) as Zeta, and Reina Kondo (Ronie Arabel in Sword Art Online: Alicization) as Eta.

HIDIVE TO STREAM “BIBLIOPHILE PRINCESS” EXCLUSIVELY THIS FALL

HOUSTON, TX — SEPTEMBER 26, 2022 — HIDIVE announced today that it acquired exclusive rights to Bibliophile Princess, the arresting historical drama anime based upon the light novel and manga of the same name. The series will premiere exclusively on HIDIVE during the Fall 2022 season.

Known as the Bibliophile Princess for her unquenchable love of books, Lady Eliana Bernstein wants nothing more than to shirk social duties in favor of retreating to the library. So, when the handsome Crown Prince Christopher promises to shield her from high-society drudgery in exchange for pretending to be his fiancée, she jumps at the chance to hide behind their sham relationship and read to her heart’s content (especially since he’s offered her access to the palace library). But much like the plot of her favorite novel, soon Eli’s feelings for the prince develop in unexpected ways, and she realizes she can’t always judge a royal book by its cover.

Bibliophile Princess is produced by studio Madhouse (NANA, Death Note) and is directed by Taro Iwasaki (One Week Friends) with series composition from Mitsutaka Hirota (Rent-A-Girlfriend). Mizuka Takahashi (sub-character design in Overlord III) provides character design. Reina Ueda (Kanao Tsuyuri in Demon Slayer) stars as Lady Eliana Bernstein alongside Ryohei Kimura (Hirotaka Wakamatsu in Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun) as Prince Christopher.

The future home video release of Bibliophile Princess will be distributed by and available from Sentai.

A new adaptation of the beloved classic series, Urusei Yatsura features the instantly recognizable and utterly iconic character Invader Girl Lum and will premiere on HIDIVE during the Fall 2022 simulcast season.

When an alien race known as the Oni invade Earth, the chronically unlucky and unapologetically lecherous Ataru Moroboshi is selected as humanity’s representative in a duel for the fate of the planet!

You’re reading this post because you like risqué comedies, and Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time: Super Extra (Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan: Super Extra) has that in spades.

Between quelling a goblin incursion, improving trade negotiations with the dwarves, and dealing with a watchful sister who will go berserk if it means keeping him in line, Peter has his work cut out for him. He’s the strongest man in the world, and that means even more women are interested in his “other” talents. It will take every ounce of Peter’s nonexistent willpower to avoid temptation!
