Japan clearly has much more pressing concerns in the wake of the horrific earthquake and tsunami that it suffered, but I just want to provide a quick overview on what’s happening with each of the shows broadcast-wise. As you can probably imagine, most shows are being postponed for a week, some of which go back to last Friday. For most stations, the tentative plan is to resume broadcasts the next week, but don’t be surprised if some are delayed longer. It’s very likely the April 1st start of the new season will get pushed out as a result (and understandably so).
Shows that did not air as originally planned:
Cardfight!! Vanguard – 10
Bakuman. – 23
Suite PreCure – 06
Beelzebub – 10
STAR DRIVER: Kagayaki no Takuto – 23
