Tokyo 24th Ward Anime Delays Episode 7 to Maintain Quality
If you’ve been keeping up with the Tokyo 24th Ward anime—which is one of three shows anime studio CloverWorks is producing this season—you’ll need to wait a little longer for episode 7 to arrive. The next episode was originally slated to premiere in Japan on February 16, but it has been pushed back a week to February 23 due to production concerns.
According to the announcement on the official website, the delay was put in place to “maintain production quality.” The post also thanked fans for their continual support throughout the season.
Here’s a translation of the full statement from Crunchyroll News:
“Thank you very much for watching the TV animation Tokyo 24th Ward.
We have decided to postpone the broadcast of episode 7, which was scheduled to be aired on Wednesday, February 16, in order to maintain production quality.
We apologize to viewers who were looking forward to the broadcast.
The 7th episode is now scheduled to be broadcast on Wednesday, February 23.
Thank you for your understanding.”
The Tokyo 24th Ward anime streams on Crunchyroll, which sums up the story like so:
The Far Eastern Special Administrative Region, also known as the 24th Ward, is a man-made island. Shuta, Ran, and Koki were born and raised on the island. Their family backgrounds, preferences, and personalities are completely different, but they always stuck together. However, one incident changed their relationship forever. A year afterward, the three friends are reunited by chance at a memorial service held for the incident. All three of their phones suddenly ring simultaneously. Their friend, who is supposed to be dead, is calling and demands that they make a decision about the future.
