Code Geass R2 Episode 09 Postponed To June 8th

The Fudge Is An Urgent Navi?!  :\

This time it’s no rumour or anything of the sort, it’s been confirmed in the TV schedule itself and not 2ch.  Speculation places the reason on the recent earthquakes in China and the plotline now moving into dealing with the Chinese Federation.  So I guess you can call it a part of Japan’s sudden newfound cautionary censorship that they never even had 2 years ago.  Of course others have speculated that it has to do with the ratings, which I think if it were the case they would have just announced they were cancelling the series out of hand instead of bumping an episode 1 week.  

And I doubt they’re going to change anything blablabla Sunrise are panderers blablabla, because honestly why would that help at all if the main problem is the timeslot regarding ratings (which again probably isn’t the case).  Honestly though I don’t quite mind about the postponement as I’m a patient guy and it’ll give me a week off from the double summaries, which are honestly quite time consuming when you’ve got a full time job and a gaming hobby also going for you. :p

    Remind me of how X/1999 manga got cancelled >_> “because of earthquakes in Japan” would mirror the real earthquakes happening back then in Japan…

    Japanese are really cautious about the whole earthquake thing…

    @UnknownVoice: Didn’t a Gundam Seed Destiny episode get delayed by an earthquake incident too? Wouldn’t be the first time it’s happened. I’m just amused by Japan’s TV networks newfound sensitivity to just about everything. They’re really doing this a lot now in manners ranging from at best delaying episodes, to at the middle ground awkward censorship/alteration (Kodomo No Jikan, Moetan, Shigofumi) to dropping episodes or series at worst (Kodomo No Jikan again, Higurashi Kai, School Days). Really Code Geass got off easy considering.

    @Gravmech: Funny you should ask

    Sigh, more time to get hooked on Macross Frontier and the various scenes that perfectly blends music/action/the moment.

    Ah well. Worse things have happened to some shows, as you point out.

    Didn’t see that coming. Sigh.

    Full metal panic was delayed a year (2001 to 2002) because the main character was from Afghanistan

    Man. This is a bummer. I have a hard enough time waiting six hours for something….Ah, well. Nothing I can do about it, I suppose.

    What’s this all about? It may as well be in Chinese!

    It kind of amuses me that the majority of the reaction came after the fact. Though really, only a few places reported on it, none of which were likely to have reached a mass audience in the west. Episode 09 will air June 8th. That’s basically what I’m trying to say.
