Damn that’s really unfortunate. I didn’t think shows airing in the fall could be affected by this too. Makes me think that other shows in the summer and fall aren’t safe from this either. I just hope the staff behind these shows are alright.

Sword Art Online has already been delayed from Sping 2020 to Summer 2020, so I doubt it will get another delay. But yeah, I'm a bit scared for Fire Force :/

If the final season of Attack on Titan joins this list, I bet the anime community is going to lose it as much as what happened to ReZero and Oregairu. Probably even worse than those two.

Same, I also watch it with my mom. I've been waiting so long for her to see what I've read in the manga, and she's always asking me if it's coming back.

Looking forward to Summer this year. No anime to watch, no video games to play, and you also can't go outside.

I don’t even watch seasonal, but damn. That kind of sucks. I’m also starting to get back into the anime groove again since well I’m stuck inside, with limited schooling(Everything volunteerly at my highschool except for Dual credit & online college...which I’m on the final two weeks of), plus my job being kind of canceled.

with most animation being done digitally these days and most having the tools needed outside the office I don't quite understand why most of the the things required to make an anime can't be done at home and then just have the editor come into the office if they really don't have the resources to do it at home. To me it makes no sense that they have to shut down the entire anime industry due to the coronavirus. I mean I'm not angry or anything and could care less about big anime franchises, it just boggles my mind.

If I’m not wrong, the last three to four minutes of the video attached below is dedicated to this particular issue.

Thanks for the keeping a list and informing us. It's much appreciated. So far, it's not too bad. Some titles I was either looking forward to or watching are delayed, but not all of them. At least they'll be aired at some point. Thanks again.

It answers my questions! I thought they recorded with all the voice actors present, but I was never really sure. I had no idea Japan hadn't really shut down. Thanks!

Sure, no problems! I just shared the vid, so I don't really deserve the credit for that. But I'm glad to know it helped.

Because maybe they haven't done all the voice recordings or can't do editing from home, so the smartest move is to postpone all the production until it's safe.

Nothing you can do about people being scared. Hope time will show that the "inevitable" actually was evitable.

Edit: Japan extends regulations, while some countries within the EU are already lifting lockdown regulations, everyone feels being made a fool cause like nothing truly happened aside from ruining the economy (read the press).
Though maybe it's best to stay anime and ignore sad reality.

Which ones are you looking forward to most?
My vote goes 100% to Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru S3

Am from United States Alabama and am happy it is one the states that will reopen May 11 for phase 1 in getting the economy running again and I look forward in going up and about again. Meanwhile it brakes my heart that Japan extended the State of Emergency to May 31. Am very angry towards China for ruining our anime lives and am very worried about the future episodes of Healin'Good PreCure. I fear Toei going to alter the main story premise and it will be a insult to injury.

Probably will be delayed also Danmachi III, Enen no Shouboutai: Ni no Shou, Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu 2nd Season and maybe Haikyuu!!: To the Top 2nd Season. It's not official but the chances are really high. There aren't news for these for a long time. Also Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? and Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu and AOT Final Season are probably impossible to air in 2020. But I hope that I'm wrong and all the of them will air without delay

Edit: I was right about the delay of Haikyuuu, but for Enen no Shouboutai i was wrong, because they confirmed it to air in July just now. Hopefully they will confirm the same for the others

The anime that maybe will not delayed are Great Pretender, Fugou Keiji: Balance:UNLIMITED, Deca-Dence, Enn Enn no Shouboutai, The God of High School, Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai!, Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Kan and perhaps Sword Art Online too. The chances for Dokyuu Hentai HxEros, Kanojo, Okarishimasu, Lapis Re:LiGHTs, Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha, Monster Musume no Oisha-san, Ochikobore Fruit Tart and Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan are 50-50.

Damn, given these facts it seems like the overall seasonal structure of anime release will be jeopardized, I wonder how they are going to handle this whole situation. *thinking face
