Crunchyroll announced on Friday that it is also streaming the television anime of Daisuke Hiyama's Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time (Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan) manga as part of the summer 2020 anime season in the U.S., Canada, Ireland, the U.K., Scotland, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, and Latin American countries. The first episode launched on Friday, and new episodes premiere on Fridays at 12:50 p.m. EDT.

HIDIVE began streaming the anime on Friday. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for home video and digital release 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 premiered on Tokyo MX on Friday at 25:35. 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.

Tatsumi is directing the anime at Wolfsbane. Nora Mōri is writing the script, and Rui Ishige is providing the character designs. Yui Ninomiya is performing the opening theme song "Tsuranuite Yūtsu" (Piercing Melancholy) as her character Luvelia Sanctos. Hilcrhyme is performing the ending theme song "Yoridokoro" (A Shoulder to Lean On). Shusei's Project are perform an insert song titled "Ti amo."

Hiyama launched the manga in Futabasha's Manga Action in July 2017. Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the manga.
