Sentai Filmworks has been under the ownership of AMC Networks for the past year, the result of a hot market for Japanese anime streaming, and the company is flexing its newfound strength from the stability of a new corporate parent by announcing long-awaited anime simulcasts for the forthcoming Summer season as exclusives on the HIDIVE streaming service, which are listed below:



Sentai Filmworks has announced its acquisition of the Call Of The Night anime adaptation and will stream the series exclusively on sibling service HIDIVE in multiple regions with specific regional availability to be confirmed at a later date. The series is described below:


Wracked by insomnia and wanderlust, Ko Yamori is driven onto the moonlit streets every night in an aimless search for something he can’t seem to name. His nightly ritual is marked by purposeless introspection — until he meets Nazuna, who might just be a vampire! Ko’s new companion could offer him dark gifts and a vampire’s immortality. But there are conditions that must be met before Ko can sink his teeth into vampirism, and he’ll have to discover just how far he’s willing to go to satisfy his desires before he can heed the Call of the Night!




Sentai Filmworks has also announced its acquisition of Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? IV on HIDIVE as part of the Summer 2022 simulcast season for audiences in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Turkey, Middle East and Latin America. Sentai describes the series:


Intrepid adventurer Bell Cranel has leveled up, but he can’t rest on his dungeoneering laurels just yet. The Hestia Familia still has a long way to go before it can stand toe-to-toe with the other Familias of Orario — but before Bell can set out on his next mission, reports of a brutal murder rock the adventuring community! One of Bell’s trusted allies stands accused of the horrible crime, and it’s up to Bell and his friends to clear their name and uncover a nefarious plot brewing in the dungeon’s dark depths.




Sentai Filmworks has announced its acquisition of Tokyo Mew Mew New and it will premiere exclusively on HIDIVE in Summer 2022 to audiences in select countries around the world (excluding Asia). Sentai describes the series below:


The scientists of the μ(Mew) Project use DNA of endangered species to create a team of heroines imbued with amazing super-human abilities. One of them, Ichigo Momomiya, awakens to discover she is armed with all the skills of a Iriomote cat. Ichigo must band together with other Mew Mew girls to repel an alien incursion, all the while hiding their thrilling double lives from friends and family.
