The official Twitter account for Revoroot's Babylon TV anime announced on Tuesday that episode eight will be delayed until December 30. The anime will resume its broadcast on Tokyo MX on December 30 at 10:00 p.m, while Amazon Prime Video will begin to stream the anime at the earlier time of 12:00 a.m.

The eighth episode, titled "Kibou," will mark the start of the series' third and final arc Magaru Sekai. Starting on November 25, Tokyo MX will be rebroadcasting the first seven episodes. The rebroadcast will feature commentary by cast members Yuuichi Nakamura (Zen Seizaki), Takahiro Sakurai (Shinobu Kujin), and Kazuyuki Okitsu (Ariyoshi Hanta).

Babylon, directed by Kiyotaka Suzuki, is based on Mado Nozaki's psychological thriller novel of the same name. It began airing on Tokyo MX on October 7, and Amazon Prime Video streamed the anime worldwide. It will have a total of 12 episodes. Episode seven, which concluded the series' second arc, aired on November 18.

Episodes 1-7 will be rebroadcast with commentary by cast? In the US at least commentary is always saved for release with a DVD. Is this kind of broadcasting done in Japan? It would be cool if a fan in Japan could give us info about what cast members say about the episodes when this is broadcast.

Why is this delay even happening? Isn't it unusual for a show that only has 12 episodes to have a month delay during its season? I thought an entire season of anime would be close to being completely done with production before airing?

Oh well, there goes my plans for tonight. I hope the ending will make the delay worth it!

Why does this shit always happen to the AOTS? That's what it feels like at least. But a 6 week delay.. wow.

It really ended in a powerful way before that delay was announced. The seventh episode was bonkers. This is the best show I've seen all year.
