TWITTERING BIRDS NEVER FLY - DON’T STAY GOLD STREAMS ON HIDIVE THIS SEPTEMBER

Can’t get enough Twittering Birds Never Fly? Then it’s a good thing that there’s a prequel OVA. Tune in on Friday, September 10, 2021, at 16:00 UTC and watch Don’t stay Gold on HIDIVE!

Our fellow LGBTQ+ coworkers and allies over at Sentai have this to say about the series:

“In this prequel to Twitter Birds Never Fly, Yashihiro has his eye on Kuga, a street punk known as the Mad Dog for his irascible temper and flights of rage. But despite Yashihiro’s attempts to recruit the delinquent, Kuga refuses to join the yakuza and have his life dictated by others. Things change, however, when he meets Kageyama, the doctor to the yakuza who might just be able to cool Kuga’s fiery temper.”

THE TO LOVE RU DARKNESS 2 DUB ARRIVES ON HIDIVE AT LONG LAST!

They say that good things come to those who wait. Apparently that’s true, because the To Love Ru Darkness 2 dub is coming to HIDIVE every Wednesday starting September 15, 2021 at 17:00 UTC!

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

“While intergalactic romance is out of this world, Rito struggles to grasp how he can love more than one girl at once, all while his inability to confess to Haruna causes Devilukean Princess Momo’s Harem Plan to come to a standstill. On top of that, the transforming assassin, Golden Darkness, is still interested in killing him, but she has her own family issues to deal with. Not to mention, a different darkness lurks among the innocent pandemonium.”

HOUSTON, TX — October 1, 2021 — HIDIVE announced today that it will stream KAGINADO, the cameo-filled comedy series produced by LIDENFILMS (Tokyo Revengers, Love and Lies, Arslan Senki). KAGINADO celebrates the 20th anniversary of Key, the iconic Osaka-based visual novel producer. The series features chibi-style fan-favorite characters from CLANNAD, KANON, AIR, Little Busters!, Rewrite and planetarian. The series will simulcast on HIDIVE on Tuesdays at 16:30 UTC, starting October 12.

Based upon the original works of PC gaming company Key, KAGINADO features the casts of Key’s most tear-jerking games reimagined as adorable chibi characters! But this time, the casts of CLANNAD, AIR, KANON, Rewrite, planetarian and Little Busters! aren’t here to make audiences cry. Instead anime fans will laugh along with this spirited reimaging of their favorite game series in a hilarious crossover event that flips the script on expectation and provides a fresh take on the characters fans already know and love.

KAGINADO is directed by Kazuya Sakamoto (episode director for CLANNAD, K-On! and KANON) with series composition and scriptwriting from Takashi Aoshima (Himouto! Umaru-Chan, No Game, No Life, Kakushigoto). Key provides the series’ musical score.
