Would be nice if the page for Asatir: Mirai no Mukashi Banashi (Future Folktales) could get approved by admin, cuz as-is it doesn’t even show up in the Spring season listings, and Ep 1 has already posted to Hidive, which is the only reason i discovered it even exists =\

Apr 4, 3:36 AM by gappasaurus

AnimeLab will also stream Arte

Added Asateer: Mirai no Mukashi Banashi for HIDIVE.

It's kinda up to the database mods to decide whether or not it fits our database. There is an entry pending approval, but if it ends up getting denied I'll have to remove it from this thread too.

Apr 2, 6:03 PM by Snow

HIDIVE will stream Asatir: Mirai no Mukashibanashi this Spring.

I know it doesn't sound like anime since Saudi Arabia is also involved in the production but Toei Animation is producing it and the cast is Japanese so yeah, anime.
