COVID-19 Impact on Anime: Delay News

COVID-19 has hit the world hard, impacting everything extremely negatively.

Anime is, of course, no exception.

Just gib me my Railgun back! >.<

I checked the most important anime shows that are fully delayed, ranging from indefinitely to a certain season or date.

And man, this is depressing. The worst is that my favorite Railgun (I have been waiting for the renewal of the Toaru series for years) has been postponed too. Again! 🙁

Of course, that is not the only gem I wish I could watch and enjoy but can’t… many high-quality anime shows I love are getting delayed and that’s just when I thought that this spring/summer can’t get any worse. Apparently, it can…

Just to give you an idea, delayed are going to be anime like:

⭐ Nanatsu no Taizai

⭐ Toaru Kagaku no Railgun

⭐ Black Clover

The Promised Neverland

⭐ One Piece

and many others.


The list below contains the most popular/ interesting anime series that are getting delayed.
