Kodoani.com – The official website for the anime adaptation of Asato Asato’s light novel is eighty six announced Sunday that it is delaying episode 19 of the anime by a week due to ‘production issues.’ The episode will now air on December 4, instead of November 27. A special edition show for the franchise will air on November 27.
Additionally, the anime was scheduled to air a compilation special episode on December 11 instead of a regular episode, but that broadcast was cancelled.
The anime’s second season premiered on February 2. The staff also delayed the show’s 18th episode from November 13 to November 20 due to “production issues.”
Yen Press is publishing the light novel series in English and it describes the story:
The Republic of San Magnolia has long been attacked by drone weapons from the neighboring Empire. To counter this onslaught, the Republic deployed similar weapons, avoiding massive loss of life and impending disaster – or at least that’s how it seemed.
The truth is that there have never been no casualties. The young men and women drawn from the supposedly nonexistent 86th district of the Republic were organized into “unit 86” and then ordered to pilot “unmanned weapons” before going into battle.
The television anime premiered on April 10 and aired in two waves.
