Coronavirus now affecting the anime industry, next A Certain Scientific Railgun T episode delayed due to COVID-19
The Coronavirus has truly affected many industries here in Asia. And now, it looks like the virus is now also affecting Japan, particularly the anime industry. According to the official website of the A Certain Scientific Railgun T TV anime, its 7th episode won’t be airing as scheduled on 21st February. And what’s causing the delay? The COVID-19 or the dreaded Novel Corona Virus.
It still isn’t clear how the virus affected the production, but the staff will reveal when the seventh episode will be airing. Instead, they will re-air Episode 6 of the anime. The staff would then apologize to fans for the inconvenience, and asked them for their understanding.
Countries all over the world are now banding together to fight the disease. Japan has certainly been one of the countries most affected after China, with an entire cruise ship being quarantined after several passengers and crew were diagnosed as having COVID-19.
