Based on FLIPFLOPs serialized manga series in “Bessatsu Shonen Champion” by AKITASHOTEN, this heart pounding shonen story follows Kaname Sudo, an ordinary high school student who has been entwined in a high-stakes, life-or-death battle after receiving an invitation to download a mobile app called “Darwin’s Game.”

    Original creator and one half of FLIPFLOPs, Hide Fukuyama, is contributing to the series’ composition and screenplay, while animation production will be by Nexus (Granbelm, Chivalry of a Failed Knight). Yoshinobu Tokumoto (Comic Girls) has signed on as the director for the series, accompanied by Kenichiro Suehiro (Cells at Work!, Golden Kamuy) handling the music. FunimationNow subscribers will have a head start to watch the series first, before a subsequent weekly release on Crunchyroll and HIDIVE beginning February 2nd.

    Per PR:

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    HIDIVE PLAYS DEVILISH “DARWIN’S GAME”

    HOUSTON, TX – December 24, 2019 – HIDIVE announced today that it acquired streaming rights to battle royale anime Darwin’s Game, produced by studio Nexus (Chivalry of a Failed Knight), for audiences in the United States and Canada. The series streams on HIDIVE beginning Sunday, February 2, 2020 at 17:00 UTC with new episodes following on Sundays at the same time.

    When Kaname Sudo accepts his best friend’s invitation to play a mysterious mobile game, he never suspects he’ll be lured into “Darwin’s Game,” a fiendish battle royale where killing your opponent puts blood on your hands and cold, hard cash in your bank account. Can Kaname escape this insane scenario, or will he be an unwilling participant of the game forever more?

    Yoshinobu Tokumoto (episode director WataMote: No Matter How I Look At It, It's You Guys' Fault I'm Not Popular!) will direct the series, which stars Yusuke Kobayashi (GATE) as Kaname Sudo and Reina Ueda (Land of the Lustrous) as Shuka Karino. Kenichiro Suehiro (Girls’ Last Tour) provides the series’ music.

        It was only a matter of time before AoA announced this show, and while that was expected and that it had a great chance to get a dub, I wasn't expecting it to get a simuldub. Seeing that this is an Aniplex license that they are probably going to dub it at Bang Zoom rather than in Dallas, and while it isn't the first time Funimation streamed the simuldub for an Aniplex title, this is the first completely new title that is getting it.

          Funimation confirmed over on Twitter that they are actually going to be dubbing this show themselves. Quite the interesting first time to happen now and makes me very curious for the future and what shows Aniplex might be willing to hand over to Funi to dub.

                          Haha, yeah... I enjoyed this series, but not that much to pay those ridiculous Aniplex prices. Me thinks I will wait until FUNimation releases their standard version of it.

                            ^^ Same, I liked the show but definitely not enough to plunk down Aniplex prices for it. Might grab it if Funi puts out a standard set down the road.
