HIDIVE Adds “Beyond the Boundary” Anime Movies

Hold onto your butts, because HIDIVE is heading beyond… in a couple of days.

Earlier today, HIDIVE announced that they acquired the streaming rights to both Beyond the Boundary films. On November 20, the company will stream the following:

  • Beyond the Boundary -I’LL BE HERE- Past
  • Beyond the Boundary -I’LL BE HERE- Future

Both movies will be offered in subtitled and dubbed formats.

Beyond the Boundary -I’LL BE HERE- Past is a compilation film for the Beyond the Boundary anime series. The movie retells the events of the original series, while focusing on Mirai Kuriyama.

Sequel film Beyond the Boundary -I’LL BE HERE- Future features a new story. The two films opened one month apart fomr each other, with Beyond the Boundary -I’LL BE HERE- Future premiering in March 2015, while Future debuted in April of the same year.

Both movies were directed by Taichi Ishidate, with Jukki Hanada (KanColle, Love Live! School Idol Project) writing the screenplays. Miku Kadowaki (Amagi Brilliant Park, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid) provided character designs.

HIDIVE describes Beyond the Boundary -I’LL BE HERE- Past as:

In this compilation film of the original TV series, Mirai Kuriyama meets a half-human, half-yomu immortal named Akihito Kanbara. In the invisible war between yomu and Spirit Warriors, two unlikely allies find themselves at the boundary between both worlds. With her power to manipulate her blood, Mirai finds herself tangled in a war she didn’t ask for, but ultimately can’t avoid…

They describe Beyond the Boundary -I’LL BE HERE- Future as:

Thanks to her amnesia, Mirai Kuriyama finally has a chance to pursue a life free of the pain of her past. Akihito, meanwhile, finds himself pushing her away to protect her from her memories and from the war with the yomu. Despite feeling an attraction to him, Mirai finds herself at a crossroads: embrace her painful history, or lose what’s important in her present forever.
