Love Live Superstar Season 2 Episode 8: Delayed!
The information comes from the anime’s official Twitter account and website. NHK was the first to report that the eighth episode of the show will not be aired. In addition, the cause for the pause was mentioned in the announcement. Due to the spread of COVID-19 at the relevant distribution locations, Love Live Superstar Season 2 Episode 8 will not be released on schedule this week.
Can There Will Be Slotting Issues?
A lack of show slots has been caused by COVID and other pandemic delays, as seen in the cases of numerous shows. The screening of anime on Japanese television networks is a tightly packed event. If a slot is already flooded by anime series, there is almost no room for change. As a result, each delay in a release causes a change in the overall timetable. 86 Eighty-Six Season 2 ended up losing all of its TV slots.
However, as of this writing, no such information has been found in the public domain. Furthermore, there haven’t been many such delays throughout the show. As a result, fans no longer need to be concerned about this matter. If that occurs, we will make certain to update this section with relevant information.
