HiDive has announced a slate of anime releases that will debut around the same time as their premier in Japan. Dark fantasies, horror, and isekai are all arriving on the streaming service for fans to enjoy.
RAGNA CRIMSON (September 30th)
Dragons reign terror over the earth, sea and sky. If sworn dragon hunters like Ragna are to have any hope of dealing death to these seemingly invincible, fire-breathing beasts, they must find a way to level the odds. Ragna teams up with a mysterious man named Crimson who has likewise sworn to stand against the dragons menacing the world. But although Crimson’s motivations may be mysterious, his goal and Ragna’s perfectly align, and together they’ll fight to vanquish the dragons once and for all.
DARK GATHERING Cour 2 (October 1st)
A horrific encounter with a restless spirit traumatized Keitaro Gentoga to the point of becoming a shut-in to avoid further disasters. But no man is a haunted island, and he eventually rejoins society by taking a part-time job tutoring the child prodigy Yayoi Houzuki. Yayoi isn’t just a genius, though. She’s a gifted medium hell-bent on finding the malevolent spirit behind her mother’s vanishing. And she’s gravely determined to drag Keitaro into her terrifying and grotesque supernatural world.
THE DEMON SWORD MASTER OF EXACALIBUR ACADEMY (October 2nd)
One thousand years ago, Leonis Death Magnus, undead sorcerer and the greatest of the Dark Lords, entered magical stasis during a climactic battle. When he awakens, he finds a beautiful silver-haired young woman named Riselia standing before him. More shockingly, Leonis has been transformed into a ten-year-old boy! Now he’ll have to adapt to this strange era and deal with the twisted monsters called Voids—all while keeping his true powers a secret from his lovely new guardian.
HELCK Cour 2 (October 3rd)
After suffering a crushing defeat at the hands of humanity, the demon kingdom is looking for a new king, and a human named Helck is about to win the tournament to decide their leader! But his campaign slogan is “Destroy all humans,” which seems a little… odd. Why would a human want to kill all humans? What secrets is he hiding? A world-shaking plot is afoot, and human hero Helck may just be the demons’ last hope…
THE EMINENCE IN SHADOW Season 2 (October 4th)
Everything has been going according to plan, but the hour of awakening draws near. Cid Kagenou and Shadow Garden investigate the Lawless City, a cesspool where the red moon hangs low in the sky and three powerful monarchs rule the streets. The true draw for Cid, however, is one who can draw blood–the Blood Queen, a vampire who has slumbered in her coffin for eons. Her awakening approaches, and Cid could finally face a day of reckoning.
THE VEXATIONS OF A SHUT-IN VAMPIRE PRINCESS (October 7th)
Three years into her life as a shut-in, vampire Terakomari Gandesblood (Komari for short), awakens to find she’s been appointed as a Commander in the Mulnite Imperial Army! The thing is, her new unit consists solely of belligerent ruffians who revolt against their superiors at the slightest hint of weakness. Although Komari hails from a line of vampires as powerful as they are prestigious, her refusal to drink blood has made her the picture of mediocrity—scrawny, un-coordinated, and inept at magic. With the odds stacked against her, will the help of her trusty (and slightly infatuated) maid Vill be enough for this recluse to blunder her way to success? Or will Komari rue the day she ever left the safety of her room?
