Love Live Superstar Season 2 Episode 8: Delayed!
The news comes from the official Twitter page and website of the anime. NHK was the first platform to reveal that the eighth episode of the show would not make it to the table. Not only this but the reason for this break was also mentioned in the annoucement. Love Live Superstar Season 2 Episode 8 will not release on the due date this week due to the spread of COVID-19 in the relevant distributing places.
Will There Be Slotting Issues?
As seen in the case of many shows, COVID and other pandemic delays have led to a shortage of slots for shows. The airing of anime on Japanese Television networks is a very tightly packed event. There is close to no room for change if a slot is already packed with a lot of anime series. Thus, delay in any release leads to a change in the entire schedule. During the airing of 86 Eighty-Six Season 2, the anime ended up losing all the slots for airing.
But as we write, no such information has been seen in the public domain. And moreover, not many such delays have taken place in the show. Thus, fans do not need to fret about this case any longer. If that happens, we will be sure to update this section with relevant information.
