HIDIVE announces first "dubcast" title

HIDIVE announced on Monday that it will stream the anime of Ryo Hanada's Devils' Line manga as it airs in Japan beginning on April 7 at 12:00 p.m. EDT. In addition, the service will begin streaming an English dub for the show within two weeks of the simulcast premiere. Devils' Line is the first show HIDIVE has announced for its dubcast initiative where it will stream anime dubs shortly after the subtitled version premieres in Japan.

The stream will be available to HIDIVE subscribers in North America, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, Scandinavia, South Africa, Spain, Portugal, and the Netherlands.

Sentai Filmworks previously announced that it had licensed the series for streaming and home video.

The anime will premiere in Japan on AT-X on April 7 at 23:30, and it will also air on Tokyo MX, BS11, Sun TV, and KBS Kyoto.

Vertical Comics is publishing the manga in print in English, and Kodansha Advanced Media is releasing the manga digitally in North America. Vertical describes the series' story:

Tsukasa, a college student, is rescued from an attack by a devil, one of many vampires that can blend in among the human population. Anzai, her savior, is a half-devil who exploits his supernatural gifts as a member of a shadowy police task force that specializes in devil-related crime in Tokyo. As Anzai continues to keep guard over Tsukasa, the two quickly forge a tentative bond—one that Anzai fears will test his iron-clad rule of never drinking human blood...

Yoshinobu Tokumoto (Nagasarete Airantou, Amanchu! unit director) is directing the anime at Platinum Vision, with Hideaki Nakano (Aoharu x Machinegun, Servamp) as assistant director. Kenji Konuta (Aoharu x Machinegun, Servamp), Ayumu Hisao (Gekijōban Servamp: Alice in the Garden) are credited for series composition and scripts. Senri Kawaguchi is drawing the character designs, and is also credited for chief animation director alongside Toshimitsu Kobayashi. Yasuhiro Saiki is the action animation director.
