Viewers of the TV anime Ayakashi Triangle will be entering February with no new episode from the series. The anime’s official website announced on Monday, Jan 23, that it will be delaying Episode 5 and beyond of the series due to COVID-19. Specific dates for the release of the episodes are yet to be announced.
The anime also relayed the news on Twitter. See their post below:
The fourth episode of the anime will still air on Monday, Jan 30, before it will go on indefinite hiatus. According to the post, the delay is due to the effects of COVID-19 on the production of the series. To keep the viewers preoccupied, all four episodes will be rebroadcast in place of the upcoming ones.
The delay in the series consequently postponed the supposed release of its first Blu-ray volume, which was originally scheduled to launch on March 29. The said Blu-ray Disc/DVD volume of the anime will now launch on September 27.
