There has been a surprise delay to episode 3 of the highly-rated anime series ‘Re-Main’ but has a new release date been confirmed by Funimation?

The Summer anime slate is inundated with fantasy and Isekai anime.

Whilst there isn’t a problem with that, some fans need variety and one of the more niche series of the new slate is Re-Main; an anime series about water polo.

Following a strong start with its opening two episodes, scoring a 7.44/10 on MyAnimeList, the series is now taking a surprise break this week.

Why was Re-Main episode 3 delayed?

According to reports online, the third episode of Re-Main has been delayed by one week due to a clash in scheduled broadcasts in Japan due to the British Golf Open.

Thankfully, the event ends this weekend, so there should not be any scheduled breaks for next week.

How many episodes are in season 1?

At the time of writing, Re-Main season 1 is currently listed for 12 episodes and there is no discussion of a second cour.

Anime to fill that swimming pool-shaped hole…

Whilst fans will be understandably disappointed with the delay to Re-Main episode 3, there is plenty of other anime titles to enjoy this Saturday.

On Funimation, the latest chapters of My Hero Academia, Kageki Shojo, Honour at Magic High School and How a Realist Built a Kingdom release online.

Additionally, Shadows House, Viy-Fluorite Eye’s Song and Pretty Boy Detective Club also receive new dubbed episodes.

On Crunchyroll, the latest episodes of Tokyo Revengers, Remake Our Lives and D_CIDE will all premiere.

However, Saturday could also become the day you finally finish watching the second series of Beastars on Netflix.
