witch from mercury delay

Due to complications with COVID-19, certain streaming services will delay episode 12 of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury. It will still air on TV as planned. The announcement on the official website did not specify which streaming services will experience a delay. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]

The delay will only last for a day. It will start streaming from 6pm JST on January 9, 2023 for those who use affected services. Bandai Namco Filmworks added that it will continue to create the show while taking care of both the staff and cast. It did not specify the details of the COVID-19 issues that the studio faces.

In North America, Crunchyroll is the major streaming service that distributes Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury. However, Crunchyroll has not made an announcement in regards to the delay. So viewers who use Crunchyroll will likely be able to watch episode 12 on January 8, 2023, along with the TV viewers in Japan.

If this delay had affected everyone, then this would have been the second time that the show had to reschedule for reasons outside its control. In December 2022, the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Twitter account uploaded an adjusted schedule for the last three episodes. The delays were due to special programs for the New Year.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury is available for streaming on Crunchyroll. However, Crunchyroll has not confirmed whether or not there will be a delay in airing episode 12. If there is one, then the episode will appear on January 9 instead of January 8, 2023.
