HOUSTON, TX — May 16, 2024 — Shonen fans can look forward to a summer of sword fights starting this July. AMC Networks’ anime streaming service HIDIVE announced today that the new fantasy action adventure series I Parry Everything! (full title: I Parry Everything to Become the Greatest Adventure!) will stream exclusively as part of its Summer 2024 simulcast season. Based on the popular novels written by Nabeshiki, I Parry Everything! is the newest title in the slate of anime TV series acquired as part of Sentai Filmworks’ (Sentai) multi-year agreement with Mainichi Broadcasting System (MBS) revealed in March 2023. Ahead of the series’ July premiere, HIDIVE will host the North American premiere of I Parry Everything! Episodes 1 & 2 on July 4 at Anime Expo 2024 in Los Angeles, Calif.

“We’re thrilled to offer fans MBS’ new series I Parry Everything! as an exclusive simulcast series this summer,” said John Ledford, President of HIDIVE. “This exciting fantasy action adventure series follows on the heels of My Instant Death Ability Is So Overpowered, the Winter 2024 hit series and most recent title acquired as part of Sentai’s multi-year agreement with MBS. Fans will not want to miss I Parry Everything!”

The Kingdom of Clays faces a dire crisis: an assassination attempt has just been made on its own Princess Lynneburg, and now its neighboring countries eye the aftermath like starving vultures, plotting the Kingdom’s downfall. The ensuing conflict will shape the face of the continent for centuries to come…but Noor doesn’t have a clue about any of that! Having freshly arrived at the royal capital after over a decade of rigorous, isolated training at his mountain home, he’s dead set on achieving his childhood dream of becoming an adventurer, even if the only skills he possesses are useless ones. Sure, Noor can “parry” thousands of swords in the span of a single breath, but everybody knows you need more than that if you want to be an adventurer! Our hero’s road to making his dream come true will be long(?) and arduous(?)—but if there’s one thing Noor’s not afraid of, it’s some good ol’ fashioned hard work!

I Parry Everything! is adapted from the currently eight-volume-long Earth Star Novel series written by Nabeshiki and illustrated by Kawaguchi, which is based on the original 2019 web novel acquired by Earth Star Entertainment Separately, a manga series also written by Nabeshiki but illustrated by KRSG is published in Comic Earth Star. Both the light novel and manga series are available in English from J-Novel Club.

I PARRY EVERYTHING! NORTH AMERICA PREMIERE
Date: Thursday, July 4, 2024
Time: 1:30 – 2:20 pm Pacific
Location: Room 403AB / Level 2 Concourse / Los Angeles Convention Center
