The 2019 Novel Corona Virus, or COVID-19, has wreaked havoc across Asia already, and not just China. In Japan, people are already feeling its effects, and it has even affected the anime industry. One such example is the ongoing A Certain Scientific Railgun T. The anime’s staff announced that they are postponing the next episode, Episode 7, because of the virus’s outbreak.
The seventh episode was supposed to air on 21st February. However, the staff decided to delay the episode, and then re-briadcast the sixth episode instead. They will announce when the episode will air at a later date.
Unfortunately, the staff did not reveal how the disease has affected the anime’s production. They did apologise for the inconvenience, and assured fans they will indeed air the anime.
As for the anime itself, much of the cast from the previous To Aru anime returned for this new season, and they include:
- Rina Satou as Mikoto Misaka
- Satomi Arai as Kuroko Shirai
- Aki Toyosaki as Kazari Uiharu
- Kanae Itou as Ruiko Saten
- Azumi Asakura as Misaki Shokuhou
Like all the titles in the “A Certain Series,” J.C. Staff is handling the animation production while Tatsuyuki Nagai is directing. And yes, fripSide is ONCE AGAIN PERFORMING THE OP THEME SONG! They previously performed all the OPs from the series, including the iconic “Only My Railgun” song. Finally, Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets are performing the ED theme song.
