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.
