Today, December 23, Level-5 officially confirmed that the remaining five episodes from the Megaton Musashi anime series would be delayed worldwide.

According to the blog post detailing the changes to the domestic broadcast, it was revealed that the reason for the anime hiatus is an outbreak of coronavirus in China; which has forced part of the production to move to Japan.
