The official Twitter account for the Assassination Classroom TV anime announced on Friday that the Fuji TV broadcast of the third episode has been delayed due to "various circumstances." The announcement also notes that future updates about the broadcast of the anime will be posted on the anime's official website.
Two Japanese men — Kenji Gotō and Haruna Yukawa — were captured by the terrorist group ISIS, and a video of the two hostages was revealed earlier this week. The terrorists demanded US$200 million within 72 hours in exchange for the men's release, and the deadline for the exchange was 2:50 p.m. JST (12:50 a.m. EST) on Friday.
