The second season of anime Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World will be delayed due to Covid-19. It was supposed to start this April, but the show will instead begin this July due to this year’s epidemic. 

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.


First I was going to say “Wait, even you are infected, over 80% of cases have only mild symptons and can stay at home. Wouldn’t that mean that people can still watch it while recovering?”

But then I realized that maybe this is more a precaution for the animators.
