Director Shinji Takamatsu mentioned on his Twitter account that the thirteenth and final episode of Sakamoto desu ga? will not be able to air on television. This is due to news coverage of the Kumamoto earthquakes in April which caused the episodes to be delayed by one week since the second episode.
Takamatsu describes the news as "truly disappointing" because the staff had crafted the final episode specifically for television broadcast. The fifth Blu-ray and DVD volume of the anime, which will include the thirteenth episode, which will ship on October 26, 2016.
Sakamoto desu ga?, produced by Studio Deen, has been airing since April 8. Nami Sano completed serialization of the manga last December.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.
-The Tokyo Ghoul/Tokyo Ghoul:re manga, if they could talk

animes should really have a low priority in their airing schedule
well crunchyroll already confirmed on twitter that 8th episode of Re:Zero gonna air without a problem so i assume there wont be any delays or maybe just 1episode then cuz they cant really delay an anime for 3weeks.....
This is very unfortunate to hear, especially knowing that the staffs had something planned for the final episode. Couldn't they skip a middle episode instead? Like if they skip episode 7, they can air the last episode on TV, and just include episode 7 into the volume.
I love how loyal the staffs on how they animated Sakamoto from its original content,

I was thinking the same way, let's just hope that they will change their minds
Oh wow - wasn't expecting that! It's such a shame time couldn't be found in the schedule at all. Disappointing, and I assume it will affect online streaming too... But, to put a positive spin... 'Good things come to those who wait'.... ?? ^_^;;
