This can't be helped, it's understandable in every way, after that massive earthquake and tsunamis... I just hope that the casualties are minimum.

I hope they'll remain safe, I won't mind any delays in manga/anime, so long as they stay alive. ;A;

As long as recovery is the top priority, that's all that matters.

Yeah I think everyone's on the same page here. I don't care if anime is delayed, all that matters is their safety.

I'm with H3ctor and SatoriTokku on this. As long as they can stay alive, that's all that matters. I don't really mind delays personally. I think new animes and mangas from those companies should be the last thing that people should talk about because of the earthquake/tsunami incident.

Anime can wait! Fixing the damage caused is first priority.

Good to see they're finding ways to make up for the shortage, hopefully all will be well soon.

its very sad, but very understandable, after the ordeal japan has gone through, and ones that are yet to come in order to repair the damage done.

Unfortunately, some of the damage cause by the earthquake will be unrepairable no matter how much work is put into it....

and so i'm sure i speak for everyone when i say this; R.I.P for the people that have lost their lives and god speed to those who have lost people that are important to them :( :( :(

Damn, missing some animes which I usually watch on Sundays, however, anime ain't so important! Saving lives and rebuilding Japan comes first! R.I.P. to those who have lost their lives, and even though I ain't christian, I give you Japanese my blessings!

Do I smell an anime about the tsunami?

This was not the only thing affected by this as well, Square Enix has shut down servers for both Final Fantasy XI and Final Fantasy XIV as well for at least a week.

My thoughts are with those during this difficult time.

Nooo, not SHAFT. I want more Madoka Magica, not "Meduka Meguca". I could care less about them once Madoka finishes, though.

Strangely enough, the primary production studios for my top-priority spring anime (Kaiji 2 and [C]) aren't affected by this (not by too much anyway, outsourcing production to those studios as anime producers do may affect them), nor are A-1 productions with Fractale and AnoHana.

It really sucks that these studios will be affected because they're also losing money with this one. The most important thing is that they're safe, though. Any kind of economical can be recovered later.

There are more important things than Anime right now, anyway. I pray for everyone's safety in Japan

Anime can wait as long as it needs to. I'm happy that they're doing everything they can to help restore the country to what it was before all of that damage was caused.
