The official web page has a comment about this issue. They said "The leak happened by mistake when Bandai staff tried to do something related to the prevention of illegal upload." and "We will air Ep 3 as scheduled."

I don't think it was just a unintented mistake but it's no use to discuss over this anymore cause they will air Ep 3.

Aye, good to hear.

I seriously hope they don't remake the whole episode, nor skip episode 3, just because of those 6 minutes that were leaked =S

They better air it cause if not, they'll get invaded by more than just Britannians.

Thats a silly decision, just because 6 mins. were leaked they want to remove or remake the episode?

Imagine if other companies started to do that. I can see it now...

"Oh no, someone leaked Snape kills Dumbledore, looks like we're gonna have to have to rewrite the 6th book."

Remake it?? come on now, they can't do that!
That's such a petty thing to mess up the storyline. Big deal, 6 minutes was scene a little to early...I don't see why they would have to remake the whole episode.
They better just leave it be and release everything as planned.


Yea, I seriously hope they won't do that. If they remake it, then they would have readjust everything after that all due to the "remake". Wouldn't even the shorten version of episode 4 be affected by it too?

Why would they decide not to air it or remake it? Do they think people wont watch episode 3 because they saw part of the episode already?

I'm craving episode 3 because I'd like to watch it before episode 4, which makes sense.

lol, that's not the point. Point is, they might remake episode 3, which may or may not affect the whole storyline. Well, we'll see.

Actually, the 6 minute leakage wasn't that impressive at all...

Maybe they can come up with a better result....

Anime is a serious business. The leak was the LAST 6-mins of ep3, and it was a CLIFFHANGER. This would really affect the rating - rating means $$. Sunrise don't care about viewers, they care on how their shows would sell on viewers. Now people are craving for ep4 instead of ep3. I'm not really concerned being spoiled, I'm more concerned on how this would affect the whole storyline. I sure hope they don't make a remake...

this is bullshit.

I saw the video a while ago... it's not that much of a spoiler. I don't see why they should remake episode 3.

I also don't really see why they would skip to episode 4 without airing episode 3. It might be a bit hard to understand what happens in episode 4 if you don't know what happened just before that... <_<
