posted on by Alex Mateo

HIDIVE will begin streaming the anime on July 10 at 12:50 p.m. EDT worldwide except in Asia, France, Germany, Monaco, Andorra, Austria, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Italy, and Belgium.
Sentai describes the story:
Peter Grill is the world's strongest fighter, but his ascent to the top came with an unexpected consequence: Women around the world, human and monster alike, want to bear his genetically superior children! Since he's currently engaged to the love of his life, Peter isn't too keen on his sudden popularity, and it will take every ounce of self-control for Peter to keep his hands to himself and his relationship with his paramour in one piece in the outrageously irreverent Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time.
The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX on July 10 at 25:35 (effectively July 11 at 1:35 a.m.). The show will also air on Tochigi TV, and will stream on d Anime Store, J:COM On Demand, TELASA, and U-NEXT in Japan. The streams will have a "normal" version and a "great philosopher" version, with the latter version debuting six days later.
