HIDIVE Streams 4 Former Anime Strike-Exclusive Titles
Video streaming service HIDIVE is now streaming Hitorijime My Hero, Kabukibu!, Anonymous Noise, and Grimoire of Zero. All four shows are available for free users except Grimoire of Zero, which is exclusive to members.
All four shows were previously exclusive to Amazon‘s Anime Strike platform in the United States, and are all still available streaming Anime Strike. As of press time, HIDIVE has not added any other titles that streamed as simulcasts exclusively on Anime Strike.
The HIDIVE streaming service launched in June after acquiring assets previously held by Anime Network Online. The service has primarily streamed titles licensed for home video by Section23 Films and its subsidiary Sentai Filmworks, including English dubs, though it has also added some older titles such as Space Runaway Ideon, Xabungle, and the live-action Lone Wolf and Cub series.
HIDIVE has since released apps for iOS and Android devices.
The service has offered some of Sentai Filmworks‘ simulcast titles. This past season it exclusively streamed DYNAMIC CHORD and the second seasons of Hozuki’s Coolheadedness and ClassicaLoid. Sentai Filmworks‘ other fall season titles streamed on Anime Strike in the United States, but HIDIVE streamed the shows internationally.
The winter 2018 simulcasts Sentai Filmworks has announced thus far — Mitsuboshi Colors, Takunomi., and Hakumei and Mikochi — will all stream exclusively on HIDIVE.
