HIDIVE TELLS THE TALE OF “JOSHIRAKU”

HIDIVE will be streaming Joshiraku every Monday starting October 7, 2019, at 17:00 UTC! Not only can you laugh out loud with this hilarious subbed anime, but you’ll also be able to listen to the earworm that is the Joshiraku ED, “Nippon Egao Hyakkei,” over and over again!

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

“Marii, Kigurumi, Tetora, Gankyou and Kukuru are five young women with completely different interests and personalities, but there’s one thing that they all share: performing Rakugo, a unique form of Japanese comic theatre in which a single artist sits in front of an audience and tells an entire story, portraying multiple characters solely through changes of voice and minimal movements. It’s a challenging art but all five of our leading ladies are determined to become the best they can… and in the meantime, they find themselves hanging out together, both at the Rakugo theater and around town. And they also have a shared acquaintance, a mysterious stranger who’s always wearing a wrestling mask! What’s that about? To find out, pull up a seat and watch as our heroines put on the best show in town in JOSHIRAKU!”

CHUNIBYO COMEDY “OUTBURST DREAMER BOYS” STREAMS ON HIDIVE THIS OCTOBER

Better break out those black trench coats and fake tattoos that can seal 10,000-year-old demons, ‘cause HIDIVE’s introducing you to the new chunibyo comedy Outburst Dreamer Boys (Chubyou Gekihatsu Boy) every Friday starting October 4, 2019, at 14:30 UTC!

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

“Mizuki Hijiri just transferred schools, but her chances of having a quiet high school life shatter when she meets the eccentric members of the Hero Club! These “chunibyo” dudes and their youthful delusions of grandeur quickly sweep Mizuki into a world of outrageous hijinks and nonstop fantasy. Noda dreams of becoming a hero. Takashima, resident otaku, longs to date only 2D girls. Tsukumo fancies himself the school’s master manipulator. And then there’s Nakamura, a reincarnation of an angel… or a devil, depending on the day. Mizuki has her work cut out for her in the Hero Club, because while their delusions might be the stuff of fantasy, the trouble they cause is as real as it gets!”

“VAL X LOVE” SIMULCAST PREPARES FOR BATTLE ON HIDIVE

Once they descend into Takuma’s life, he discovers they aren’t scared of him one bit! In fact, they’re super keen to get to know him better. As the intimacy between the Valkyries and Takuma grows, so too do their powers. And that’s a good thing because they’re on orders to slay the vicious monsters intent on destroying the earth. How far will they go to deepen their connection, level up, and save the world… by any means necessary!?!”

“ASSASSINS PRIDE” SIMULCASTS ON HIDIVE FOR FALL 2019

Fate can be cruel, especially when a lack of a certain trait is considered embarrassing, shameful, and even dangerous.

Find out when HIDIVE simulcasts the ASSASSINS PRIDE anime on Thursdays starting October 10, 2019, at 15:00 UTC!

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

“In a world where only nobles wield the sacred power of mana to wage war against the creatures of darkness, a curious absence of ability places young Merida in a precarious position. Under the guise of tutelage, Kufa, a ruthless assassin, is sent to assess Merida’s abilities and determine if she is the true-born heir of the prestigious Angel family. If she does not measure up to her family’s expectations, another, more ruthless plan will be set in motion…”

If she can’t find enough members to reform the club, she’ll have to kiss her dreams of being the best markswoman around goodbye… so it’s a good thing Hikari has no intention of throwing away her shot just yet.”

HIDIVE Reinforces Streaming Lineup with “Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia”

HOUSTON, TX — October 29, 2019 — HIDIVE announced today that it acquired distribution rights to Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia, the adaptation of the wildly popular Fate/Grand Order mobile game’s seventh Singularity, for audiences in the United States and Canada. The series premieres on HIDIVE, Tuesday, November 5, at 14:30 UTC, with new episodes premiering on following Tuesdays at the same time.

Ritsuka Fujimaru, the final human Master, and his Demi-Servant, Mash Kyrielight, have journeyed through multiple lands, realities and eras to prevent the Incineration of Humanity and repair “realms that cannot be observed” called Singularities. As the duo journeys in ancient Mesopotamia in the year 2655 B.C. to repair a newly discovered seventh Singularity, they find the fortress city of Uruk fighting back a fearsome attack of Demonic Beasts, known as the Absolute Demonic Front. What insidious power has begun to awaken in this ancient land?

Produced by CloverWorks (The Promised Neverland, Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai, DARLING in the FRANXX), Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia is directed by Toshifumi Akai (director Shelter, assistant director DARLING in the FRANXX, animation director Toradora!). UNISON SQUARE GARDEN (March comes in like a lion, Welcome to the Ballroom, Tiger & Bunny) performs the series’ opening theme “Phantom Joke” and Eir Aoi (Arslan Senki, Kill la Kill, Sword Art Online) performs “Hoshiga furu yume,” the series’ ending theme song.

The series stars Nobunaga Shimazaki (My Love Story!!, Black Clover, Free!) as Ritsuka Fujimaru, Rie Takahashi (School-Live!, SHIROBAKO, Comet Lucifer) as Mash Kyrielight, Tomokazu Seki (Psycho-Pass, Steins;Gate, Nanbaka) as Gilgamesh, Yu Kobayashi (Cutie Honey Universe, Gourmet Girl Graffiti, Negima!) as Enkidu, Takahiro Sakurai (Ahiru no Sora, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, Mob Psycho 100) as Merlin and Kana Ueda (Girls und Panzer, Maria Watches Over Us, Hayate the Combat Butler) as Ishtar.
