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 hope they will air episode 13 if this anime will have a rerun. But I don't know if it has an effect on Crunchyroll.

Fuck earthquakes amiright? Wasn't watching this while airing anyway so won't be too detrimental, can't wait to watch it when it ends though!

Very disappointing, but at least it gives us something to look forward to. Let's just hope that episode 12 doesn't end on a cliffhanger!

Quite dissapointing indeed, but a little bit of wait can't hurt Swagamoto must be planning a stylish endind !

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'.... ?? ^_^;;

I love how loyal the staffs on how they animated Sakamoto from its original content,

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 was thinking the same way, let's just hope that they will change their minds

Knew it, poor anime are treated like trash compared to the thousands of time they air some earthquake stuff and sports shows :'(

ohh, com'on, first re:zero maybe delayed for tennis, and now this

animes should really have a low priority in their airing schedule


Rezero is not delayed. It's airing was delayed in some of the channels, but it has no effect on overall schedule beyond those channels. That has been confirmed already.
