    We're thrilled to announce a new partnership today with our friends at HIDIVE. Now, you can watch even more free and legal anime here on Anime-Planet via our integration of a selection of HIDIVE's catalog. These videos are integrated into the site like all of the rest - you'll see them on the Watch Online page, integrated into the anime recommendations on any info page, and are available through various filters on the site.

    You can watch these videos in our classic light mode, or in our new dark mode.



    Like all videos on Anime-Planet, availability is based on your region.

    They are the streaming platform that carries anime licensed by Sentai Filmworks (and Section23) to explain them in the simplest way possible.

    Same but I mean there's a lot of different streaming services out there so I doubt we've heard of all of them. But looking at hidive they seem to have a fun collection of shows so AP hit it big here imo.
