New Hi-Dive Dubs Announced


Anime streaming service Hi-Dive tends to take longer with dubs than their much larger competitor in Crunchyroll, but a few titles that fans have been anxiously awaiting dubs releases for have finally been announced. A few dubs from previous anime seasons that will get dubs in the near future include:

  • My Instant Death Ability is So Overpowered (dub coming July 19)
  • Level 1 Demon Lord and One Room Hero (dub coming August 20)
  • Chained Soldier (dub coming July 29).

All of these series simulcasted in the Summer 2023 or Winter 2024 seasons, so fans have been waiting two or three anime seasons for the dubs to debut. Sentai, the company in charge of the Hi-Dive streaming service, is a significantly smaller competitor so it’s understandable that they cannot pump out dubs with the extreme speed Crunchyroll does. Often, Sentai chooses which series to dub based on how popular the subtitled release of an anime does, so these series getting a dub is a sign Sentai considers these series popular. The luckiest series receive what Hi-Dive refers to a Dubcast (or a dub streaming the same season as the simulcast).

Probably the most anticipated new dub is Chained Soldier, an adaptation of a  Shonen Jump+ manga from the creator of Akame Ga Kill.  No real surprise that a Shonen Jump+ title got a dub, but the lack of a Dubcast probably surprised some people. Level 1 Demon Lord and One Room Hero is an adaptation of a seinen comedy manga about a former hero and a former demon king from a fantasy setting living together despite being from enemy factions. Wacky hijinks ensue. My Instant Death Ability is So Overpowered is an isekai light novel adaptation about a teenager transported to a fantasy world and given the superpower of causing instant death to monsters. We are just a month or two away from these dubs arriving and these dubs are highly anticipated.
