KanColle season 2 episode 4 has sadly been delayed in Japan, but what date and time will the anime now release worldwide on Crunchyroll?

As the anime industry works on a seasonal slate model, the daily schedule for fans around the world is set after just a few weeks of a broadcast.

Unfortunately, delays and postponements of episodes are still commonplace, with the news of a canceled broadcast often passing many viewers by as translations from Japanese to English are slow to circulate.

Only a few hours before its latest installment was set to premiere, KanColle season 2 episode 4 has sadly been delayed – so what date and time will the next episode release on Crunchyroll?

KanColle season 2 episode 4 delayed

On November 24, only a matter of hours before the premiere of KanColle: See You Again on Another Quiet Blue Sea season 2 episode 4, it was announced that the broadcast had been delayed.

The postponement concerns the domestic broadcast in Japan, which subsequently means that the international release via Crunchyroll has also been delayed.

According to the original post, via the KanColle Japanese website, the delay to season 2 episode 4 is due to “production circumstances”, but did not provide any additional details as to what these circumstances are.

“Notice regarding future broadcasts] Due to production reasons, the broadcast date of Episode Ⅳ “Sasebo”, which was scheduled to be broadcast and distributed sequentially from Thursday, November 24, has been changed. We sincerely apologize for making everyone who was looking forward to the broadcast wait.” – KanColle anime, via Twitter.

Previous episodes will be aired in Japan in place of the delayed episodes.

How has the anime been rated so far?
