The novel coronavirus is impacting the production of anime in Japan. With a state of emergency declared, voice actors aren’t going into the studio, which makes recording new episodes difficult, if not impossible.
Because of this, a number of shows will be delaying future new episodes and in their place re-runs will be aired. As of today, the next episodes for the following shows will be delayed:
In the place of Digimon Adventures’ episode on April 26 will be a GeGeGe no Kitaro repeat.
Production of new Pokémon anime episodes is temporarily on hold and re-runs will air.
From April 26, One Piece will air a repeat in lieu of a new episode.
The latest Pretty Cure anime will not broadcast a new episode from April 26.
Obviously this is understandable and, hopefully, this will help remind fans to stay safe as well.
Originally slated for June 27, 2020, the eagerly anticipated Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 has been delayed due to concerns about the novel coronavirus pandemic.Read more
