We are going to discuss Re: Zero seasons 2 delay caused by COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus), as we are all seeing the global shutdowns regarding the same. Coronavirus has affected many countries severely, and Japan is one of them. Japan is home to the Anime industry, and due to COVID-19, the Anime industry is also affected, causing delays in releases and whatnot. So, let’s discuss more details about our favorite Re:Zero seasons 2, which is titled Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World.
Re:Zero Season 2 Delayed?
As we know, the anime show was supposed to return after a long time for a second season, which made all the anime fans excited about it. For those who know, the show aired its first season four years ago, and since then, we have been waiting for another season. But finally, we were close to getting a update of April 2020, we are again disappointed that the release will not happen in April. So, when will we be able to see the next season?
Re:Zero Season 2 update
Re:Zero Season 2 will be released in July 2020. This is an expected update, we have more information for the same. The second season of Re:Zero is one of the most anticipated anime shows of this year. Thus, the delay in the update was not at all expected. However, the release of Re:Zero season 2 has been postponed to July 2020 as per the reports. However, we are afraid that the outbreak can cause the delays to be longer, and without any official announcements, like all the corporate offices and related work has been on hiatus for a long time, and the situation does not seem improving as of now.
Other major countries where anime is produced, which is South Korea and China, are also affected by the COVID-19, so we expect delays in other animes too!
More details to be discussed would be the opening and ending theme CDs of Re:Zero seasons 2, which was supposed to release in May 2020, is also delayed. The update of the opening song Realize by Konomi Suzuki was 13 May 2020, but now the update is shifted to 26 August 2020. On the other hand, the ending theme by Nonoc named ‘Memento’ will be coming out now on 2 September 2020. So, it is big bad news for all the Anime fans across the globe.
