HiDive has brought the 2013 mech anime ‘Majestic Prince’ to their streaming service. Dropping all twenty-four episodes, the release includes both the original Japanese voice cast and the English dub.
“Hey, anime mecha fans! We’ve got great news – Majestic Prince is hitting HIDIVE,” they said on their website.
Directed by Keitaro Motonaga, it was produced by the Japanese animation studios Doga Kobo and Orange with Reiko Yoshida writing the episodes. Toshiyuki Watanabe worked on the series as its composer. Hikaru Arashima and Hisashi Hirai handled the character designs while Minoru Maeda worked as the Art Director.
Hanabee Entertainment produced the first English dub version with Kyle Jones working as the ADR Director and co-writer of the script. Sentai Filmworks currently holds the North American license.
Check out the trailer below:
The anime is based on the manga written by Rando Ayamine, illustrated by Hikaru Niijima, and published by Hero’s Inc. in their ‘Monthly Hero’s’ magazine from November 1, 2011 to March 1, 2019. It was followed by the 2013 re-release from mangaka Yūsuke Ozaki and Japanese publisher Kadokawa Shoten.
TV Tropes describes the synopsis as follows,
“In the latter half of the 21st century, humans begin to leave Earth and live in space. In order to adapt to the environment in space and deal with the hostile aliens in Jupiter, genetically engineered children called “Princes” are artificially raised and trained to be pilots of armed robots “AHSMB (Advanced High Standard Multipurpose Battle Device). This is a story about one of the teenage “Princes”, Hitachi Izuru, who studies in an academic city Grandzehle, and his four companions as they begin their battle against the unknown enemy. That is, of course, provided they can start getting along with each other.”
The franchise also has two 2016 films including the flick ‘Galactic Armored Fleet Majestic Prince: Wings to the Future’ and a follow-up movie ‘Galactic Armored Fleet Majestic Prince: Genetic Awakening.’
