posted on by Adriana Hazra

HIDIVE announced on Monday that it will host the United States premieres of the following anime titles at Anime Expo:

The television anime of toufu's Level 1 Demon Lord and One Room Hero (LV1 Maō to One Room Yūsha) manga will make its U.S. premiere on July 1 at 5:30 p.m. PDT.

Seven Seas licensed the manga, and it describes the story:

Ten years ago, the hero Max defeated the Demon Lord. In order to regain his power, the Demon Lord went into a deep slumber...but when he awakens, his body is only a chibi version of its fearsome form. Now curious to see what his enemy is up to, the Demon Lord visits Max, only to discover the mighty hero living in a dirty one-room apartment. The Demon Lord decides to move in with Max and help his old enemy become a formidable opponent once more!

The television anime of Tenichi and Suzunosuke's The Most Heretical Last Boss Queen: From Villainess to Savior (Higeki no Genkyō to naru Saikyō Gedō Last Boss Joō wa Min no tame ni Tsukushimasu.) light novel series will make its North American premiere on July 2 at 12:00 p.m. PDT.

The anime will premiere in Japan on July 6.

Seven Seas is releasing both the original light novels and the manga adaptation in English, and it describes the story:

Pride Royal Ivy is only eight years old when she realizes that she's been reincarnated, destined to become the future wicked queen and final boss of an otome game. She's got it all in this new life: razor-sharp wit, boss-tier powers, and influence over the kingdom as crown princess. Determined to sow despair and destruction across the land, she... Wait, what kind of a rotten future is that?! Princess Pride decides to drop the maniacal villainess plan and protect the male love interests instead, cheating her way to saving everyone she can! Will this final boss end up earning the adoration of her kingdom?

HIDIVE announced on Thursday that the television anime of Kenichi Kondō's Dark Gathering manga will make its North American premiere on July 3 at 8:30 p.m. PDT.

The anime will premiere in Japan in July.

The manga centers on Keitarō Gentōga, who has the ability to be a spirit medium. In junior high school, he got someone else wrapped up in a spirit possession incident, and he has been a shut-in for more than two years. As he reintroduces himself to society as a private tutor, he meets a genius girl named Yayoi Hōzuki. Yayoi is instantly able to tell that Keitarō has skill as a spirit medium, and she invites him to go with her to a haunted location. The two then start their journey capturing evil spirits.

This year's Anime Expo will return to Los Angeles on July 1-4. The convention recently discontinued its Premier Fan Badge system.
