All Anime Delayed Due To Tokyo Olympics 2020: Know The Schedules!

Here is a list of all Anime Delays Due To Tokyo Olympics. Hiatuses is not a new concept in the world of anime. Many times, shows have to face delays due to the streaming of important events. Pandemic was a pretty big influencer in the delay of several shows and their new seasons. Nonetheless, this particular list of delays has come as a relief to many fans. Recently, the NHK network came out with a cumulative list that states the delay schedule of numerous shows. 

Besides NHK shows, other anime that regularly air on prime Japanese networks are also facing delays. The reason behind this rescheduling is the Tokyo Olympics. The opening ceremony of the games has already begun airing. This causes many shows to make space for other games to air simultaneously. So, if you are struggling to keep up with the schedules, here is a sorted list of new releases for you!


For a start, it is to be made clear that the schedule from NHK does not provide the new release dates of the anime. It only confirms the dates on which the anime will not air. The episodes airing on July 26 and August 2 of this children’s anime are delayed to an unspecified date.
