Fans of the soccer anime series might not be happy to hear about the new developments in the Blue Lock Anime. This week, the official Twitter account of Blue Lock PR released another visual in light of the anime’s release. However, instead of the pre-announced release date, there was a new date slated in the note. And now, the anime is delayed by a year. So, is the anime delayed by a year? When is it releasing? Here is all you need to know about the show.
The Blue Lock anime was announced on August 12, 2021. Studio Eight Bit is handling the animation and production of the series. Other than this, a spin-off manga is also underway in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine. This work will release on June 9, 2022. But fans are more fixated on finding out whether the anime is actually delayed.
Blue Lock Anime: Delayed By A Year!
Ahead of the much-awaited release of Blue Lock anime, the makers of the show brought out another timely update. In the tweet from the official Twitter account of the anime, there was a visual art of Ego from the manga. In the text of the tweet, it was mentioned that the anime was set to release in the following year, that is, 2023. As soon as the post was out, fans began debating about the delay in the project. However, since such announcements have a different manner of breaking out, fans believe that there is no delay.
Is It A PR Glitch?
The entire comment section of the Tweet is filled with gigs about the delay. Fans say that the makers pushed the anime by one year without any prior notice. There is a big debate on the fact that this is only a PR glitch from the team. Backing this argument is the fact that most of the work and promotion of the anime is already in process. Multiple cast announcements and PVs are already out in the public domain.
Thus, if the makers were planning a break, these campaigns would be put on hold. But the other side says that the tweet has been out for a long time now. And news portals like AnimeNewsNetwork and Crunchyroll News have not stamped it official. Thus, nothing can be believed until there is confirmation from the makers.
Blue Lock Anime: Release Details
As of now, there is no confirmation whether the anime has been delayed or if this is a PR glitch. If the official news portals are to be believed, then the Blue Lock Anime will release in 2022 itself. Until the official website of Blue Lock confirms the news, nothing can be stated with assurance. We will be sure to update this section as soon as there is more news on this. Thus, stay in touch with The Anime Daily to get more updates on the same.
