The Chihayafuru TV anime’s official website has finally updated, unfortunately, it brings some bad news. The website reveals a brand new key visual featuring Chihaya herself. However, it also announces that it won’t be premiering in April as previously planned. Instead, it will premiere six months later, in October.

The staff didn’t reveal any reasons as to why the anime got a delay. However, they did promise to work harder and so a “superior work”. Madhouse will be animating the project, with Morio Asaka returning from previous seasons to direct.

As for its cast, much of them will be returning. In fact, they already confirmed that the main three cast members are going to be back!

  • Asami Seto as Chihaya Ayase
  • Mamoru Miyano as Taichi Mashima
  • Yoshimasa Hosoya as Arata Wataya.
