HIDIVE’s Winter Simulcast
Hakumei and Mikochi
While Hakumei is cheerful, outgoing and prefers to be outside, Mikochi is more introverted and prefers to stay indoors. These differences will set the tone for their friendship. Riding on insects and birds, creating tools from the forest and living their normal lives, they’ll show us how day to day chores can be the biggest adventure in a small world full of wonders.
Takunomi follows the story of Michiru Amatsuki, a 20-year-old woman who just moved to Tokyo to change jobs. She lives in apartment 101 of Stella House Haruno, an all-female boarding house. There, she meets other women of different ages, jobs, and personalities. They all have something in common though: their love for good food and drinks.
The Seven Heavenly Virtues
Heaven has been thrown into chaos, and in the ashes, seven voluptuous angels known as The Seven Heavenly Virtues, are sent to Earth to search for a candidate who can become the “true messiah.” As these beauties from the sky try to race against time, they realize how far the Seven Mortal Sins have spread their plague. Their search is just beginning… Will the lucky candidate be able to handle these salacious angels?
This story follows the lives of three small kids on their own secret mission… to protect their city! The adventures of the “Colors” include struggling to be heard, playing games, solving puzzles, and even outsmarting some adults, all before nightfall. Available on HIDIVE Sunday, January 7 at 14:30 UTC.
Pop Team Epic
One is short and angry, the other is tall and calm but together they are perfect to size-up any crazy situation. Popuko and Pipimi will take us on a bumpy ride through anime, manga and video game references showered in absurdist comedy and their spontaneous reactions.
DAMEPRI ANIME CARAVAN
The series main character is Ani, the princess of a small nation named Inaco. She is hardworking, realistic and strong-minded. She was raised with the belief that royalty needs to work even harder than the people of her kingdom. That’s a good thing because she will need to work extremely hard to face the princes of two powerful kingdoms: Selenfalen and Milidonia. After all, when you have to deal with a narcissist, a womanizer, a fragile idol, and a shut-in otaku, what can go wrong?
