The official website of the Senkō no Night Raid anime series has announced on Monday that it will stream the seventh episode ("Jihen"/Incident) instead of having it air on television. The episode depicts the point of view of the Japanese in Manchuria during the events leading up to the 1931 Mukden Incident. The alleged sabotage of Japan's railway in this area of China was the pretext for Japan's invasion of Manchuria that same year.
The streaming of "Jihen" will run from May 18 to May 30, although whether the stream will be geographically restricted has not been specified. Instead of showing "Jihen," the television stations in Japan will air the special episode "Yogen" (Prediction), in which a key person of the story will discuss the story thus far and predict what will come for Japan's Sakura Kikan spy organization in China.
