Kokoro Connect, Hataraku Maou-sama! to Premiere on HEROtv Next Month


Local anime cable channel HEROtv has announced its anime line-up for the month of March.

According to the press release, HEROtv will air Cuticle Detective Inaba, Hataraku Maou-sama! and Kokoro Connect next month.


The story revolves around Hiroshi Inaba, a private detective, and part-wolf-part-human being who was created artificially. Hiroshi runs his own detective agency and solves cases with the help of his cross-dressing secretary Yuuta, and Kei, a “relatively normal” teenager. The plot centres on Hiroshi and the gang trying to arrest his arch-nemesis Don Valentino, a mastermind goat with a taste for money (literally). (ANN)

Cuticle Detective Inaba will air every weekdays starting March 4 at 6:30 PM with replays at 12:30 AM, 6:30 AM, and 12:30 PM.


In another dimension the Devil King Sadao is only one step away from conquering the world when he is beaten by Hero Emilia and forced to drift to the other world: modern-day Tokyo. As “conquering the world” are the only skills the Devil King possesses – and are obviously unnecessary in his new situation – he must work as a freeter to pay for his living expenses. (ANN)

Hataraku Maou-sama! premieres on March 12, every Monday to Friday at 8:30 PM with replays at 2:30 AM, 8:30 AM and 2:30 PM.


Kokoro Connect revolves around the daily, not so normal lives of Taichi, Iori, Himeko, Yoshifumi and Yui and their encounters in the Cultural Research Club. Up until recently they thought that they and their friends lived normal happy lives, but now the Heartseed is pulling their lives apart and exposing their inner secrets through body switching, urges and age regression.

Kokoro Conect will air every Monday to Friday starting March 27 at 9:00 PM with replays at 3 AM, 9 AM, and 3 PM.

HEROtv will also air the anime movie Tiger & Bunny: The Beginning and two-minute animation shorts Domo next month.


Tiger & Bunny: The Beginning will premiere on March 9 at 12 AM with replays at 12 PM and 9PM.

Kotetsu T. Kaburagi is a super-powered hero who fights crime in the name of corporate sponsors on Hero TV. After being forced by a merger to work for a new company, he is assigned an antagonistic partner named Barnaby Brooks, Jr. As their tumultuous relationship as the first hero duo progresses, they must capture a capable thief who now threatens the reputation of all the heroes.

HEROtv is available on SkyCable Channel 44 and Destiny Digital Cable Channel 44.
