The official website of the Spring 2016 anime Shingeki no Bahamut: Manaria Friends has announced that broadcast of the series has been postponed due to "various circumstances."

The cast and staff page on the official website no longer lists the production team, although the voice cast members remain. An archive of the page shows that it previously listed director Takafumi Hoshikawa, character designer Keiji Ishihara, art director Kenichi Kurata, composer Takashi Watanabe, and Studio Hibari.

Manaria Friends, an adaptation of a popular event in the Shingeki no Bahamut mobile game, was scheduled to begin airing on Tokyo MX on April 1 as part of the Ultra Super Anime Time programming block. A new broadcast schedule has not been announced, and the early screening of the first episode scheduled for March 20 has also been canceled.

I wonder what the reason is. At least we'll be getting more info about Shingeki no Bahamut Genesis S2 later this month.

Wasn't this a short? Why would you need to delay that?
Either some copyright troubles or they have pushing this some seasons back and airing it along side the main series' sequel like some other shows have done.

I would care, but this was going to be pointless anyway so, as others have said, nothing of value has been lost. At least we didn't lose the actual 2nd season.

They realized they done fucked up in the middle of the season somewhere, so the whole thing had to be done again from scratch.

So you want Cygames kick out MAPPA and make Genesis s2 become 10 minute show?

What? It's because of the Producers not just the Studio.

Oh...
I don't actually care about any season two and only cared about this , so...;;
Well, to be clear; I'm not even a fan of Rage of Bahamut, but this little short kinda fit into the type of things I like. Anyway, I hope everything gets sorted out.

And you think Cygames is so poor that can't produce 2 shows at same time?
You can like Genesis, but your reply doesn't make any sense, there is zero reason Cygames need to Axe anything to make sure Genesis s2 happen, because it's already happening, and this show delay or not it won't make Genesis s2's produce faster.

I didn't said they should replace this anime's block to Genesis S2.
I mean I just want more announcement on the main series not on it's spin off.
What's your problem mate? You are assuming many things and you are already going off-topic. Please just stop. And I never saw 2 shows that had same source (not story) aired at the same season.Maybe you are so butt-hurt that this shit was postponed.

Because if anything, Genesis is the spin-off one.
And what's the point of "was the reason behind this" if you never think about it? why would Cygames have to delay this show to make them have a reason announce more Genesis s2 detail, when they already announce they will release more detail at Anime Japan 2016 event?
