HIDIVE is gtting a bit… Machiavellian today.
Earlier today, HIDIVE announced that they acquired the streaming rights to the English dub for Armed Girl’s Machiavellism. The series will start streaming in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, and other select regions on August 18, at 16:00 UTC (12:00PM EDT, 9:00AM PDT). New episodes will be added on Saturdays.
Armed Girl’s Machiavellism is based on Karuna Kanzaki and illustrator Yūya Kurokami’s manga of the same name. Hideki Tachibana (BlazBlue Alter Memory, H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~ ) was tapped to direct at Silver Link, with Shoko Takimoto (Chaos Dragon, Senran Kagura: Estival Versus – Festival Eve Full of Swimsuits) providing character designs. Kento Shimoyama (Good Luck Girl!, Servant × Service ) was in charge of series composition. Team-MAX’s Hiromi Mizutani will score the soundtrack at studio Nippon Columbia.
Sentai Filmworks describes the show as:
Rebellious Fudo Nomura has no idea what he’s getting into when he’s transferred to a school where the girls carry weapons to appropriately “discipline” the boys into submission. In the Private Aichi Symbiosis Academy, Nomura’s life is actively in danger when he becomes the target of Rin Onigawara, leader of the Five Ruling Swords, the five-girl group that commands the school. His only option: get expelled from the only school that would take him, or survive the wrath of these Machiavellian girls!
