Japan is facing one crisis after another. As if a pandemic wasn’t enough, Japan also has to keep up with earthquakes. Attack of Titan, our favorite gory anime, was cut off midway due to an emergency earthquake warning.
You may be grumpy because of the episode postponement, but you also have to understand that the earthquake warning is issued for the people’s safety.
Eren Yeager and Gabi’s string of disturbing decisions have to wait till the next week to get aired.
Japan faced a 4.7 magnitude earthquake around the Wakayama prefecture at around 12:26 am on 14th March.
Attack on Titan final season’s 14th episode was airing from 12:10 on NHK. However, the episode was cut short by the emergency news coverage.
NHK has not announced the date for the re-broadcast of the 14th episode. Keeping up with the broadcasting channel, both Crunchyroll and Funimation have decided not to air the concerned episode till it airs in Japan.
Not too long ago, Fukushima had faced a 7.1 magnitude earthquake. Videos of things crashing in shops and houses went viral on the internet.
Even though the Wakayama earthquake was not as strong as its predecessor, it was still dangerous.
The government has announced that there is no danger of a tsunami. The quake was not strong enough to cause significant damages. Any harm to lives has also not been reported yet.
Attack on Titan’s latest episode was pulled back because the safety of the people comes first. Many people have been reminded of the terrifying 9.0 magnitude earthquake that Japan had to face exactly a decade ago on 11th March.
We can only hope that everyone in and near the Wakayama prefecture is safe. Japan has always faced frequent natural disasters but that does not make the real deal any less dangerous.
