It should have decided before, that's correct decision.

I dont understand why they'll still release it. People will be going to stores for a onessential product.

The cover of that Demon Slayer volume looks amazing. I wish I could get a better shot of it.

This is an unrealistically short delay and the US comics industry clearly won´t start up again at the end of the month after their one month "break".

States of emergency are what they are and the Japanese comics industry is less digital than many foresight ones so you can´t just switch to all-digital without hurting your distributors. Not that DC or Marvel wanted to risk it and they could have. Even that would lead to delays of course. The dominos for the less frequent publications will have to fall fairly quickly too.
Shueisha and co still could make all sorts fo things free to read on their site for the duration of the break like Marvel is doing. Get them hooked with what you have and hope that some new or lapsed readers will after production picks up again.
