posted on by Jennifer Sherman
HIDIVE announced on Friday that it will stream the Gunparade March television anime in the United States and Canada with both English subtitles and an English dub. The series will debut on November 8 at 12:00 p.m. EST, and new episodes will premiere every Thursday.
Section23 Films' Maiden Japan imprint released the series on DVD in North America on September 18. Maiden Japan describes Gunparade March:
In 1945, the alien invasion ended World War II and united humanity against a common enemy. Now, more than 50 years later and after countless deaths, a new group of teenagers has been drafted to train as pilots of the advanced combat mecha known as Humanoid Walking Tanks (HWTs). For Atsushi Hayami and the rest of Unit 5121, the odds of living to see their twenties now depends on the hardened battle steel of their armor, the courage and strength of their comrades in arms and the tactics of superior officers who see them as game pieces to be played against the Phantom Beasts. Friendships and love blossom against a battle-torn landscape, and every day is another desperate struggle to survive a seemingly endless war in GUNPARADE MARCH!
The 12-episode anime adaptation of Alfa System's Kōkidō Gensō Gunparade March PlayStation game debuted in 2003. The Gunparade Orchestra sequel anime followed in 2005. Both anime inspired manga adaptations, and Gunparade Orchestra inspired a side story original video anime in 2006.
Media Blasters previously released the Gunparade March anime on DVD with an English dub. Media Blasters and ADV Manga released the first manga series.
