As we mentioned in our previous post on Kingdom third season, it did air at the starting of this month. But considering the present situation of the world, there are countless anime that stopped from airing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you want to know all of those anime, you can check our list of anime & manga delayed due to COVID-19. NHK General TV (NHK-G) channel did air four episodes of Kingdom’s third season. But it seems like we have to wait for some time until they release the next one.

NHK’s Anime World website reported that they would air Hayao Miyazaki’s Future Boy Conan anime series on May 4 instead of new Kindom episodes. And it will be a digitally remastered one of the original work which aired in 1978. Since they weren’t able to release new episodes of Kingdom season 3 because of COVID-19 pandemic, they’re doing it as a replacement. They sure know how to make the audience happy. The Fourth episode released on April 26 means yesterday, and they reported that its broadcast would postpone after that.

‘Kingdom’ is an anime series adaption of Yasuhisa Haru’s historical manga, and the season premiered on NHK General TV on April 5. It began premiering its first season in 2012, and it took a hell of a lot of time to make three seasons. If you haven’t watched it yet, make sure you catch up before they release the remaining episodes.

Future Boy Conan is a post-apocalyptic anime series which aired 42 years ago. But the series now is going to air won’t be the same as that one. A remastered anime improves all its aspects to entertain a viewer. So, there’s no doubt about the series being great. Well, at least they planned to make us happy with this series instead of the Kingdom’s new releases.

However, due to COVID-19, the delays of anime have been rising consistently. And almost all of the anime studios have not even announced release dates. If this keeps on going like this, we may have to wait until 2021. We hope it doesn’t continue like this, and to make it happen, everyone has to take a stand to put a stop to this pandemic. Stay Home! Stay Safe!
